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!

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!

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 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!

DIY Wreath Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Who else loves a great wreath stamp! I am obsessed with them, and pretty much have one for every season! But then Kerry from Ink Hill Revival got me thinking about stretching my supplies and I was like… umm why not use the tiny flowers from stamp sets, and make my own wreath! So after a little coloring and A LOT of die cutting, here’s what I ended up creating!

To create this card, I started by stamping the poinsettias and holly leaves from Honey Bee Stamps’ Riding By…Holiday Style stamp set with copic friendly ink and coloring them using copic markers. Next I stamped the detailed leaves with two shades of green ink and die cut ALL the images!

Copic Combos : R35, 37, 39; R59. 89; G21, 24, 28, 29; G94, 99; Y15

To assemble the card, I started with a grey card base and added a maroon sheet from the Vintage Holiday paper pad, which I trimmed down to be a little smaller than than an A2 size, and die cut it using the Pierced Fancy Flakes Cover Plate. I cut a circle using the Sweet Stacks : Circle die from a sheet of pattern paper from the same pad and embossed a sentiment from the Bitty Buzzwords : Holidays stamp set.

I finished off the card by adhering the die cut florals and leaves using liquid adhesive along with foam tape to add some dimension to create the “wreath” around the sentiment. And of course I added some jewels to the finished card.

Vintage Holidays Sneak Peak Day 4 | Honey Bee Stamps

Welcome back for the last day of sneak peaks for Honey Bee StampsVintage Holiday release going live tonight! Today I’m sharing a card using the new Tag, You’re It: Celebrations stamp set along with it coordinating dies and the Tag Builder Die Set.

The sentiment “welcome little one” from the Tag, You’re It: Celebrations stamp set caught my eye as I recently had a conversation with a friend about making baby cards with non baby stamps! So I create a little snow family using the Snow Family Like Ours Stamp Set and added the sentiment for a baby card!

To create this card, I started by stamping, coloring (with copics) and die cutting the snow family, next I cut down a piece of pattern paper using the Sweet Stacks: Rectangles die cut from the Vintage Holiday paper pad to create the background for the card.

Next, I die cut the largest tag from the Tag Builder Die Set twice, once from pattern paper (gingham galore paper pad) and once from white card stock. I stamped the snowflakes from the Snow Family Like Ours Stamp Set onto the white tag, using watermark ink along with silver embossing powder, and lightly inked it up with blue ink. I attached the two tags with some twine to create a layered look, add the snow family and sentiment to finish off the card!

Vintage Holidays Sneak Peak Day 3 | Honey Bee Stamps

Welcome back for another sneak peak at Vintage Holiday release from Honey Bee Stamps, coming tomorrow! Today’s card was made using the new New Year Cheers stamp set, New Year Cheers Die Cuts, and Cheers Die Cuts.

After having fun creating yesterday’s no coloring card, I decided to play around with embossing today, instead of coloring. This card is perfect for mass producing too!

To create this card, I started by arranging the images from the New Year Cheers stamp set on to a large acrylic block. Then I stamp the cluster on to vellum using watermark ink along with gold embossing powder. For the sentiment I die cut and stacked the “cheers” from the Cheers Die Cuts in black card stock. I also embossed “to the new year” from the New Year Cheers stamp set in white on to some black card stock.

To finish off the card, I added the vellum piece to a black A2 top folding card base, added the word die cut along with the sentiment using liquid and foam adhesive, and added a few black jewels.
