Happy Hump Day Y’all! It’s finally NOT raining here today and we got to get out to the park! I was going to get coffee on my way there, but #momlife! Looking forward to my morning cup tomorrow! Today I’m sharing a fun pair of card that I made a fun floral stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps.
Ever since I discovered the muted look of distress oxide inks on kraft paper, I just can’t stop! To show the difference between kraft and white card stock, I created a pair of cards to share today using the same inks.
To create these cards, I started by stamping some of the florals from Honey Bee Stamp’s Wildflowers stamp set using copic friendly ink on to heavy weight white card stock. I colored in the images using copic markers.
Next I inked up A2 sized kraft and white cardstock using the lattice layer from the Art Deco Patterns stencil. I used the following distress oxide colors : Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold, Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn.
Can you see how much brighter the colors are on white card stock? I love it as much as I love the muted tones on kraft for fall cards!
To finish off the cards I embossed the word “thankful” from the Bitty Buzzwords : Fall stamp set along with the “FOR YOU” onto stripes of paper. I die cut the “thankful” word using the coordinating die. I arranged the colored flowers in a bunch, adhering them to the inked card front using foam tape and liquid adhesive. Lastly I adhered the “thankful” die cut using foam tape and tucked the sentiment strip underneath it and added some jewels around the florals.
I hope that this inspires you to create something crafty at the end of your day! If you do, and share on Instagram, be sure to tag me (@everydayengineered) and Honey Bee Stamps (@honeybeestamps)! We love to see what you create!
