Coffee and Copics | Reverse Confetti

Hello, Hello! I managed to finish my 4th card for the Caffeinated Christmas Card ChallengeSnowflakes that ends in a few hours and wanted to quickly pop in to share it!

To create today’s card I used a stamp set from Reverse Confetti, the sponsor of this challenge!

To create this card I started by stamping on of the mug images from the Brew It stamp set in a teal color and die cut using the coordinating die. I also stamped the copics from Honey Bee StampsLet’s Get Crafty and colored them with copics (B02, 05, 12 and C00, 1, 3), before die cutting them using the coordinating dies.

To create the background I used distress oxide inks (in tumbled glass, broken china and mermaid lagoon) along with the Falling Snow Background stamp embossed in white on to some Bristol Smooth card stock. After adding the color I die cut it using the Circle of Waves die cut. I layered all the elements on to an A2 card base and finished off with a few sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something and you get some crafty time this weekend! 
Happy Crafting!

Rainbow Birthday Wishes | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello Crafty Friends! Hope that y’all are having a fun and productive start to the week! I’m still working on that routine, especially motivated by the fact that the faster I get work and chores done, the more time I have to craft!

On to the card, today I’m sharing another card inspired by Carly T‘s rainbow shaker card, you can see the first card I made here.

To create this card, I started by inking up an A2 sheet of Bristol Smooth Cardstock using  distress oxide inks (in Shaded LilacSalvage PatinaTwisted CitronSpiced MarmaladeAbandoned CoralKitsch Flamingo). Then I splattered it with water, once that dried I added black and gold paint splatters.

I covered the inked panel using the (new) Mod A2 Cover Plate die cut from white card stock. I built the sentiment using the Birthday die cut, along with the Birthday stamp set. And as always I finished off my card using some rhinestones.

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! 

Happy Crafting!

Pretty Pink Posh

Hearts Make Me Smile | Pretty Pink Posh

Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Monday! It’s been a minute since I have been on here with a Pretty Pink Posh card! Between the holidays break, guests and germs, I’m finally getting back into a “routine” and it’s been really fun digging into my stash to find new stamps that haven’t been inked as I’m on a “no spend” challenge! 6 more days to make it a month!! I heard rumors of a Pretty Pink Posh Birthday release in February, but thankfully I have been saving my gift cards for that!

Okay, back to the card! To create this card, I started stamping the “outer” hearts from the Floral Hearts Stamp Set and the Large Floral Hearts Stamp Set with light brown ink on to heavy weight white card stock, and colored them in with copic markers. Once the coloring was done, I restamped the images with watermark ink and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder, and die cut them using the coordinating dies (Floral Hearts Coordinating Dies and Large Floral Hearts Coordinating Dies).

Next I created the background by embossing Petite Hearts Stencil (similar from Pretty Pink Posh : Scattered Hearts Stencil). To finish off the card, I built the sentiment using the Love You Script Die, Simple Sentiments Stamp Set and Simple Strips Dies, along with gold glitter card stock, black card stock and gold embossing powder. Finally added some jewels.

Make sure to tag me @everydayengineered and @prettypinkposh on Instagram and join the Facebook group so that we can see what you have created!

Get Cracking on Christmas | Newton’s Nook Designs

Woah, twice in one day! Well I made a card for #getcrackingonChristmas for Jenn Shurkus‘ monthly challenge and I couldn’t wait till next month, so here we are during nap time, racing against the clock to share this card!

I didn’t know where to start when I sat down to create this card, and then went through my “new” thought process to “get in the mood!”, and I’ll share with y’all too incase you need to find your mojo:
1. When to post? This was easy as get cracking on Christmas is every third Thursday of the month, this gave me a “deadline” of sorts.
2. Theme? Basically what stamp set I should use, I wanted to use on that I hadn’t inked up yet as part of my buy less, use more challenge! But I found like a dozen unused holiday stamps, oops. Then I stumbled upon Claire’s Card On Christmas Card Challenge and used her monthly theme of “Santa” as my starting point, and inked up this Dear Santa stamp from Newton’s Nook Designs.
3. Layout? Since my stamp was from Newton’s Nook Designs, I figured I would just check out there challenge blog, Inky Paws Challenge and found it was a sketch one! So, that’s what I used!
4. Color Scheme? well the stamp matched this pattern paper and I just took that as a sign!

Okay, enough about getting my mojo back! If you are here to create this card, then let’s get started. I stamped the image of Santa holding the presents from the Dear Santa, and colored it in using copic markers to match a scrap piece of pattern paper from the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad, and die cut it using the coordinating dies.

Next I die cut a banner from the Frames & Flags Die Set from green card stock and embossed a sentiment in white from the Snow Much Cheer stamp set. I also embossed an A2 size card front of the same green card stock using the Holiday Foliage Stencil. Lastly, I die cut the patten paper using a stitched rectangle from the Frames & Flags Die Set. Once I layered all the pieces together, I added some jewels to finish off my card.

Copic Combos : B00, 02; R27, 29; Y13; C00, 1, 3, 5, 7; E11, 13

If you made it this far, thank you! If you are inspired by any of my work please tag me on Instagram as I would love to see your recreation!

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Day 3 – Heartfelt Meows & Heartfelt Woofs (works with Heart Frames Dies and Banner Trio Dies) 

Happy Wednesday! It’s the first reveal week of 2022 over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! Today we are showcasing the Heartfelt Meow and Heartfelt Woof stamp set, that work with the previously released Heart Frames Dies and Banner Trio Dies.

For today’s card, I wanted to share ideas that don’t involve detailed coloring and us pattern paper, cause we all hoard pattern paper, right?

Believe it or not, my first card had ZERO coloring! A little stamping, and a bit more die cutting and we were done! This is a perfect card for mass producing!

To create this card, I started my cutting down a sheet of pattern paper from the Meows paper pad to an A2 size. Next I die cut the stitched rectangles using the A7 Frames and Banner Die Set. I lined them on the card front. Then I stamped the image from the Heartfelt Woof stamp set on to Kraft paper using brown ink and die cut it using the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frames Dies. I finished off the card by stamping a sentiment from the same Heartfelt Woof on to a banner die cut using the Banner Trio Dies.

For my second card, I decided to add some color, but this time using ink blending so that it’s quick!

To create this card, I started by stamping the image from the Heartfelt Meow stamp set with watermark ink and embossed it in white. I inked it up in a rainbow using distress oxides (in twisted citron, squeezed lemon, ripe persimmon, festive berry, picked raspberry) and added a few splatters of water. Once it dried I die cut it using the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frames Dies.

To finish off the card, I dry embossed the Petite Hearts Stencil on to the card front and added a sentiment from the Heartfelt Meow stamp set on to a banner die cut from Banner Trio Dies.

Heartfelt Meows” or the “Heartfelt Woofs” Stamp SetThis stamp set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Day 2 – Orchids + coordinating Dies

Happy Tuesday! It’s the first reveal week of 2022 over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! Today we are showcasing the Orchids stamp set along with the coordinating Dies.

To create my card, I paired it with the new A7 Frames and Banner Die Set that was revealed yesterday.

To create this card, I started by stamping the Orchids image from the stamp set twice with copic friendly ink on to heavy weight white card stock, and colored in using copic markers (BV02, 00, 000; BV04, 08; Y17, 15; E15, 37; C00) and die cut them using the coordinating Dies.

Next I created the card front by die cutting all the layers of the A7 Frames and Banner Die Set. I left the base and the frame in white, but inked up the stitched rectangles using distress oxides in Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet. I tried to add the Petite Hearts Stencil with white pigment ink, but it didn’t really work as my purples were too light but don’t worry I have more card with the stencil!

I finished of the card with two sentiments from the Orchids stamp set embossed in gold and add the Orchids using foam tape and finished off with some jewels.
