Pop of Sunflower | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Friday! I don’t know what you, but this weekend could not have come quicker! AND it’s raining this weekend and I am secretly so excited to be able to stay at home with no FOMO, watch football, catch up on chores, bake and craft! Lots of fun stuff that’s sitting in my “new to use” bin!

While editing the pictures for today’s cards, I was like woahhh, I made a card with no stamping! Wow! That’s so unlike me! I’m usually ALL about the stamping and coloring (I love my copic collection!) Any hoo, I hope you like this CAS-ish card as much as I do!

To creat this card, I started my die cutting the Autumn Splendor Cover Plate from heavy white card stock (I needed to use a metal shim!) and cover the back with A LOT of foam tape to add dimension! After a minute of removing all the backing, I adhered it to an A2 card base.

Next up was some more die cutting! This time, I die cut all the pieces from the Lovely Layers : Sunflowers Die Set, die cutting the leaves twice. I inked them up using distress oxide inks ink shades of yellow and green, and splattered them with water, black and brown paint to add some depth. I match them up and layered them using liquid adhesive and added the sunflower to the card base using foam tape, so that I could tuck the leaves under it.

Lastly, I die cut the Thanks die cut from Kraft and golden glitter card stock to create a stacked sentiment die stack, and adhered it to the bottom on the card. All done! This really was an easy card to make, but looks SO FANCY!

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!


Rainbow Boba Tea | Mama Elephant

Happy Monday! Today I’m sharing another entry of mine to the #mamaelephant2021gdcall!

Entering cards into this guest DT has been a great way to use a bunch of stamps that I have been hoarding for who knows how long! So I’ll let you in on a secret, shhh. I’m not really a big “boba” fan, but I do love milk tea and this stamp was way to adorable to pass on!

To create this card, I started stamping all the images from the stamp set twice, and coloring them in an assortment of colors. I didn’t have the dies when making this card, so I fussy cut all the images.

I wanted to create the whole rainbow with the images, I went with a slim line card. I started by die cutting a scallop and stitched rectangle using the Slim Card Basics die cuts from white card stock. I inked up the stitched rectangle using distress oxide inks, to create a rainbow. I stenciled over the rainbow using the Little Rainbow stencil and white pigment ink.

To finish off the card, I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder on to the corner of the card, adhered the colored images alternating between foam tape and glue to create dimension, and added some jewels as a finishing touch.

As mentioned before I am adding this as an entry to the #MamaElephantCD2021Call! You can find my previous entries here and here and here.
