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!

Fall Birthday Card | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Thursday y’all! Almost done with the week and time for some crafting over the weekend! I don’t know about you, but fall going into winter is probably my favorite season to craft! Especially since it’s perfect time to use all those sunflower (and poinsettia) stamps! I love making season birthday and thank you cards, it helps make the post of your stamps too!

For today’s card, I designed it around the Falling Leaves Stencil, I ordered it a while back, but it fell to the bottom of the pile and I just never used it!

To create the card, I started by stamping and coloring (with copic markers) the sunflower image from the Sunflower Days Stamp Set and fussy cutting the image (you can also use the coordinating die).

Copic Combo : Y15, 17, 38; YG 06, 23, 25; E 13, 15, 37

Next I created the background using distress oxide inks (in wilted violet, spun sugar, scattered straw) and white texture paste. I started by inking up an A2 sheet of Bristol Smooth card with the distress oxide inks, and splattered the sheet with water and white paint. Once it dried I layered the Falling Leaves Stencil, and added the texture paste. I let it dry a few hours before adding the colored images using foam tape, and a sentiment from the Birthday Roundabout Stamp Set stamped on a banner from the Banner Trio Die Set. And as always I finished off the card with some jewels.

I hope this card inspires you to create something for fall! Please make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog for more inspiration and don’t forget to tag #NewtonsNook or #NewtonsNookDesign on Instagram to share what you created!

Lawn Fawnatics

make the sentiment the star | LAWN FAWNATICS CHALLENGE #112

Happy Wednesday y’all! I don’t think I have shared this before, but Lawn Fawn stamps were some of my first “real stamps” in my collection! This is waayyy before I started shopping for stamps online and stumbled upon them at my local craft store! And in all honestly I haven’t use them as much, mostly cause I wasn’t the best at coloring! But now that I am super confident with my copic marker coloring skills, bring on all the stamps! I’ve also been slowly adding coordinating dies as I didn’t have those cause I didn’t even have a die cutting machine back then!

Enough chit chat! Let’s get to today’s card! It was inspired by a party goodie bag my daughter got and I matched the current challenge over at Lawn Fawn, so of course I had to finally finish making it and share!

It’s been a while since I’ve made a card in one seating and woah … the copics that I used on this! Any guesses? Scroll down to count them as I have them listed!

Like all my card, I started by creating this card by stamping all the images from the Out of This World stamp set. I colored them with copics, trying to be as realistic as possible! Then I die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Next I created a galaxy background on black card stock using Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire, Cracked Pistachio, Scattered Straw, and Black Soot. I splattered it with water and silver paint and let it dry. Once dry, I die cut it using the Twinkle Slimline Die. I backed it with some grey cardstock.

For the sentiment I die cut the Giant Happy Birthday from silver and grey cardstock. I layered them a little off set to create a shadow. I adhered it to the middle of the card front and added the colored images to create the universe! I covered the I with the spaceship image.

Copic Combos : B00, 02, 05, BG10, 34, C00, 1, 3, 5, 7; E 13, 15, 31, 33, 37, 42, 43, 55; R08, 14, 27, 29; Y 11, 13, 15, 17, 35; YG 01, 03, 06; YR 07, 16

Thanks for stopping by today, hope y’all have a great rest of the week!

Pretty Pink Posh

Rainbow Monsters | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Saturday! I usually avoid blogging/social media on weekends, but I really wanted to share this card I made with Pretty Pink Posh’s Halloween release before the Fall release comes out tomorrow! I love ALL the products in the new release and honestly can’t help but want them ALL!

As you probably know, I’m not big on Halloween, but these monsters caught my eye as I can use them for fun birthday cards for little boys (and girls)!

To create this card, I started by stamping ALL the image from the Monster Hugs stamp set and colored them in using copic markers. Color combos listed below. Next I cut them out using the coordinating dies.

I couldn’t decide which monster images NOT to use, so I decided to make a square card using them ALL! I started by die cutting the largest stitched square from Lawn Fawn’s Large Stitched Squares Die Set. I attached the die cut square to the Grid Stencil and inked it up to create a diagonal rainbow using distress oxide inks. I used the following colors : Spun Sugar, Abandoned Coral, Dried Marigold, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, and Shaded Lilac.

Once the ink dried, I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the cardbase, and added the colored monsters in the ‘squares’ with foam tape. Lastly I added the card front to a Kraft notecard.

Copic Combos : N0; BG 10, 11, 13; YG 00, 01, 03; RV 21, 23, 25; Y02, 11; YR 14, 16, Y35

Red, White and Blue Week | Honey Bee Stamps

If you haven’t already noticed already on Instagram, Honey Bee Stamps has started the party early for 4th July! There’s a bunch of lives, giveaways and a sale is coming! Stay tuned!

Y’all know that I’ve been loving layered ink blending, with white pigment ink! So, of course I pulled it out for my take on a “red, white and blue” card.

To create this card, I started by inking up the large balloon stencil from Layering Balloons Stencils using distress oxide inks in Mermaid Lagoon and Festive Berries. Then I used the Stars and Stripes Forever Background Stencil, along with white pigment ink to add some depth to the balloons. I made a similar card, here.

I finished off the card with word die cuts from Bitty Buzzwords and Birthday die cut sets, cutting the words from black card stock. Lastly I added some jewels to match the ink blending!

I hope that this inspires you to create something crafty this long weekend!

Rainbow Blooms | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday! Hope y’all had a fun (and maybe crafty?) long weekend! I had a pretty productive and enjoyable one with my first post vaccine wedding and finally figuring out how to pressure wash the deck! Not much crafting happened, but thankfully I made this card ahead of time so I have something to share!

I’ve recently been adding to my distress oxide ink collection and decided to justify it by actually using them! For this card I used; festive berries, spiced marmalade, squeezed lemon, twisted citron, salty ocean and wilted violet. I started by first heat embossing the Heartfelt Blooms image 3 times on to Bristol Strathmore paper with white embossing powder. Then I ink blended using the colors mentioned in rainbow order. I buffed the images before die cutting to allow the white embossing to pop!

Next I heat embossed (in white) sentiments from the Mom and Dad and Birthday Roundabout stamp set on to banners die cut from black card stock using Banner Trio Die Set. I trimmed them a little to offset them on the card front that I cut using the scalloped rectangle from the Slimline Frames and Portholes Die Set. Lastly I added a few jewels matching the inked background.

I hope this card inspires you to create something for spring! Please make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog for more inspiration and don’t forget to tag #NewtonsNook or #NewtonsNookDesign on Instagram to share what you created!

CAS birthday card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Wednesday! Tomorrow is Eid, so I got TONS to do popping in with a quick birthday card with minimum coloring!

To create this card, I stared by die cutting an ombre purple sheet from the Playful Pastels paper pad with the Quatrefoil A2 Cover Plate – Top. I adhered it to an A2 top folding notecard, added stacked diecuts from the Bitty Buzzwords die set, cut from black card stock. Lastly I accented the card with some floral images from the Fancy Frosting stamp set, that I colored but hadn’t previously used!

I’ve recently been loving making quick and easy CAS cards, I hope that you are enjoying them too!

Not 2 Shabby

Rainbow Shaker | Not 2 Shabby Stamps

Happy March! Did it crawl up on you too? I haven’t done my monthly planning NOR have I finished by February to do list! Let’s just say today is going to be busy! So let’s get to it!

Remember the cookie background I created using the Sprinkled with Love from Not 2 Shabby Stamp (I used it here and here), well let’s just say I’m pretty obsessed with it! So I decided to try it out in the new mini slimline size! I started by printing it out on heavy weight white cardstock, then ink blending with distress oxides (in Kitsch Flamingo, Festive Berries, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw, Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass). Then I trimmed it down with the stitched Mini Slimline Stacklets then I die cut the word ‘happy’ to create a shaker, I used alpha dies from CZ Designs ALL CAPS and the birthday is from Pretty Pink Posh scripted Happy Birthday (stacked 3 times). To create the shaker, I backed the diecut sheet using acetate, layered it with foam tape, and filled it with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix. Lastly I backed the shaker front with a Petite Scallop Mini Slimline Stacklets.

Thanks for stopping by the blog! Hope you have a great week!

Heffy Doodle and Honey Bee Stamps Collaboration Blog Hop

Happy Saturday! Welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Honey Bee Stamps Collaboration Blog Hop! Make sure to scroll to the end to see all the other participants! For my card, I decided to step out of my comfort zone with some space themed stamps! I used some slimline dies from Honeybee stamps and paired it with space stamps from Heffy Doodle.

I started by die cutting a slimline base using the Slimline Sentiments: Stitched | Honey Cuts from black cardstock. I also die cut a cloud border using the Horizon Slimline Borders | Honey Cuts from the same black cardstock. I then inked it up using distress oxide ink (in mermaid lagoon, fossilized amber, dusty concord and black soot) to create the galaxy background. I finished off the backgrounds with some water splatters, along with some silver watercolor.

I stamped and colored all the images from Spaced Out Clear Stamps and colored them with copic markers, and die cut them using the coordinating dies. I layered the cloud border onto the slimline card base using foam tape for added dimension, and then scattered all the colored images around to create the scene. I adhered them with both liquid and foam tape to add more some dimension.
