This stamp set is perfect for cardmaking and here are some cards that I have made with this stamp set:

#CTMH Operation Smile 'Happy Everything'

I have cut this swing card using the Artiste and Art Philosophy cartridges using the Blossom papers at 4 3/4″.

These two cards I made today for my cardmaking class using the Brushed papers and the A Budding Friendship stamp set.

Another card using Seaside papers and the Treasured Friendship stamp set and complements.

Finally I thought I would have some fun with the cute little bees.  I have tried using the Honeycomb embossing folder and trimming it down and making it look like a beehive.  I had some fun using the Shower Flowers stamp set to create the background with fussy cut out flowers on top.  It hasn’t quite turned out how I wanted but it was fun to do.
