Divided Shaker Card (plus a bonus card!) | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello crafty friends! I hope that you are having a great start to the week! If not, make sure to sneak in some crafty time! Today I’m up on the ScrapbookPal Blog sharing a fun pair of rainbow card, cause when in doubt, rainbow it! I love 2 for 1 cards as extras are always fun!

To create this card :

I started by inking up the first layer (small balloons) of the Layering Balloons Stencil from Honey Bee Stamps using distress oxides ink in Ripe Persimmon, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet

Next used the second layer (large balloons) the Layering Balloons Stencil and inked it up with the brushes I used for the first layer without actually inking up the blending brushes for a lighter shade of the same color. 

Remove the stencil to reveal the pattern! 

Next I die cut the inked background using the Happy Happy Happy cover plate. Make sure to save the die cut letters for a second card.

Next I added acetate to the back of the card front die cut, and glued in the centers of the “P” and “A”.

I added foam tape around the back of the card front, and also between the letters to create “pockets” for the different color sequins!

Next I lined up the die cut letters back into the cover die so that it would be easier to add them to a card front. I added iquid adhesive to the back and adhered them to the card front.

Next I used the Happy Happy Happy stamp set and coordinating die set to create a few sentiments to the card fronts, adding them using foam tape.

Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something! 

Happy Crafting!

Popping in today to share a quick-ish card cause sometimes you just don’t have the time or energy for detailed coloring! That’s when the newest coordinating ink blending stencils come in handy! I avoided them for a while, now I am hooked!

Next I inked up the “vase” using Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink.

The I ink blended the leaves using Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn distress oxide inks.

Plants Make My Heart Happy | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Thursday! Woah it’s been a busy week so far here on the blog! I am really enjoying having higher energy levels to actually go more things then read in bed! As much as I like a good book, I enjoy other things too! Like crafting!

I finally got to use another new stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps, that I got just before the 2021 ended!

To create this card, I started by stamping one of the leaves and pots from the Happy Plants stamp set and colored it using copics, and die cut it using the coordinating dies.

Copic Combo : V01, 12, RV63; E13, 15, 37; YG03, 17, 67

To assemble the card, I layered a piece of green card stock with a die cut of the Mod A2 Cover Plate cut from the same color paper. Next I die cut a Swirling Leaves Pierced A2 Cover Plate from white card stock and trimmed it down using one of the die from the Sweet Stacks: Rectangles. Lastly I embossed a sentiment from the Hello Sweetheart stamp set in gold onto black card stock and cut it out using the coordinating die.

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!

Can you believe it’s 2022 in like 23 days 🤯 Anyways let’s get back to card making, are y’all done with holiday cards?? If not here’s one that can be mass produced! 

Ink blending is one of my favorite ways to add color quickly for cards, you can see here, here, and many more ideas here.

To create this card, I started by inking up an A2 piece of Bristol Smooth card stock with distress oxide inks in chipped sapphire, abandoned coral, dried marigold, crushed olive and salvage patina. Next I die cut both the Pierced Fancy Flakes Cover Plate and the Fancy Flakes Cover Plate, layered from the same sheet of A2 white card stock.

Happy Thanksgiving | Honey Bee Stamps

Woah! What a day it’s been, long pre-thanksgiving to-do list, kid 1 caught the sniffles and I committed to a baking job, AND I have a card project due tonight. Why I ask, why do I do this to myself LOL. It’s okay, I have a to-do list, I’m not making a turkey, so I have a ton of time till 1PM tomorrow. Make a plan, stick to it, and things will get done. I digress. Let’s get to today’s card so I can move on to the next thing.

After a long 18-ish months, its been more than heartwarming to be able to gather, so my card to dedicated to all those who can finally travel, and create new memories cause we are always better together!

To create this card I stamped, and colored many of the images from the Better Together stamp set. I used copics, and then die cut them using the coordinating dies. I also stamped and embossed the sentiment on to black card stock using gold embossing powder and die cut it using the coordinating die.

Next I inked up a piece of card stock slightly larger than an A2 size with distress inks (abandoned coral, dried marigold, crushed olive and salvage patina). I sprayed it with water and then splattered some gold paint on it. Once it dried I die cut it using the Autumn Splendor Cover Plate.

I added the die cut panel to a Kraft card base and then added the colored images along with the sentiment and as always finished off with some jewels.

Happy Thanksgiving crafty friends!

Thanks a Latte (in the Fall) | Honey Bee Stamps

Two posts in one day! Woah what! After my cleaning session, I had a few minutes before the dishwasher and dryer were done, and with two kids napping, I figured I’d get a little crafty time in and finished another card to sneak into the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

For this card, I paired some fall and winter products from Honey Bee Stamps cause I am not yet ready to let go of fall! I also finally attempted and successfully created a full panel shaker card!

To create this card, I started by created the shaker using this method and the Autumn Splendor Cover Plate and added it to a top folding A2 card front.

Next I created the mugs using the Mugs and Kisses die set along with the Darling Dahlias stamp set. I colored in the flowers with copics and then used a copic BG11 to color around it. I stamped the latte art from the Hug in a Mug stamp set and ink blended over it with some brown distress ink and die cut it using the coordinating die.

Lastly I built the sentiment with the “thanks a” from the Hug in a Mug stamp set and the “latte” from the Bitty Buzzwords: Fall die set cut from matte gold paper.

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)!

Fall Bouquets | Honey Bee Stamps

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.

Leaves : YG63, G24, G21, Flower centers : E55, E57, Yellow : Y38, Y15. Y13, Y11, Red : R24, R14, R05

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!
