Fall Florals | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy World Card Making Day and Happy Saturday crafty friends! I hope that you are having a great start to the weekend! I’m not going to get any crafting done today, but I have a fun card to share with y’all! To create this card :I loved playing around with all the new fun products from Honey Bee Stamps Fall release!

To create this card :

I started by stamping the largest image from the new Beautiful Blooms stamp set with brown copic friendly ink off set on an A2 card front as I wasn’t going to use the whole image. I colored the image using copic markers, then restamped with VersaMark watermark ink and Lawn Fawn gold embossing powder to emboss. Next I die cut the colored image using Beautiful Blooms coordinating dies.

These are the copics I used.

Next stamped and embossed a sentiment from the Beautiful Blooms stamp set in gold, I trimmed off the “hello” and used a hello die cut from the Darling Dahlias die set. I die cut it 3 times from kraft card stock and once from golden glitter card stock and stacked them.

Next I embossed the front of a card, using the Ornate A2 Cover Plate – Base die cut. This cover die doesn’t have an edge so it’s great for die cutting directly on to a card base. Next I layered it with a die cut using the Ornate A2 Cover Plate – Top die cut.

I finished off the card my layering all the elements using foam tape and liquid adhesive, and added a few sequins as a final touch.

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

Till the next time, take care!

CAS Fall Floral Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Tuesday! I hope that y’all had a productive start to the week! My Monday was so productive I’m ready for the weekend, LOL! Well more like I’m ready for my crafty time!

Popping in today to share a card I made using the new Honey Bee Stamps release! I loved ALL the fall things from this release, so I’m so glad that I got to play with some!

To create this card, I started by stamping one of the images from the On The Line: Fall Florals stamp set with brown copic friendly ink onto white card stock. I colored it in using the colors shown below and then die cut one side only using the coordinating On The Line: Fall Florals die cuts.

To finish off the card, I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the same On The Line: Fall Florals stamp set with gold embossing powder. And added it to a card front layered with the Ornate A2 Cover Plate Base along with the Ornate A2 Cover Plate Top Dies.

I hope you enjoyed this quick CAS card! Make sure to tag @honeybeestamps and me, @everydayengineered, if you are inspired by this card and create something!

Baby Laundry Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Wednesday! I hope that your week has started off well! I am still playing catch up from July, and I can’t believe that it’s August! But I am excited about ALL the fall crafting!! Farhana from Everyday Engineered and popping in today with a fun baby card! I combined a few products from Honey Bee Stamps to make this CAS-ish card!

To create this card, I started by heat embossing the Spring Blooms Background stamp with watermark ink and white embossing powder.

Next I inked blended over it using distress oxide inks in Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet, and Peacock Feathers.

Using the Simply Hexagons die from Pink Fresh Studios, I die cut the inked background to create a partial background for the card front. I also die cut a ruffle onesies from some pattern paper using one of the dies from the Bundle Of Joy die set.

Next I played around with some sentiments for the front and inside of the card, from the Inside: Welcome Baby Sentiments stamp set. I just a few strips of pattern paper to match the front of the card and pull it all together.

I finished off the card by stamping/embossing the sentiments, and gluing everything together using a combination of foam tape and liquid adhesive.

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

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!

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!

It’s the holidays! | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Hump Day! Not sure if it’s the fact that my weekend starts earlier this week or the fact that I’m still playing catch up from the weekend, but this week is flying by! 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.

To finish off the card I die the words “merry Christmas” from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holidays Dies from golden card stock, and used a few left over colored die cuts from the Riding By…Holiday Style stamp set, and of course I added some jewels!
