Spring Bliss Release Sneak Peak Day 1 | Honey Bee Stamps

Good Morning and welcome to day 1 of Sneak Peaks for the Spring Bliss release from Honey Bee Stamps.

I used the Easter Basket Builder stamp set, along with the coordinating dies to create my card today. Anyone that knows me, knows that I LOVE florals! So of course I chose the florals to add to my basket.

Copic Combos : E37-15-13, RV 21-13, Y13, G21-24, G12-03

I started by stamping the basket and floral bunch from the Easter Basket Builder stamp with brown copic friendly ink, leaving the stamps in my stamp positioner. I colored and then heat embossed them with gold embossing powder, and die cut with with the coordinating dies.

Before adding my image to my card base, I dry embossed it using the Basketweave Background Stencil. Finally I added a sentiment with gold embossing on black card stock from the Hoppy Easter stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by! Make sure to head on over to Instagram for more inspiration!

Happy Crafting!

Blooming in Life Release| Joy Clair Designs

Happy Monday y’all! It’s release day over at Joy Clair Designs! My ‘official’ term with them ended yesterday, but I didn’t want to leave without creating a little something with the new release!

I made two cards using the Forever Friends Digital Stamps. For my first card, I sized the floral image to fit on a A2 size card front (after printing I die cut it using a scallop rectangle die). I colored the image using copics (R85 – RV 34 – 11 and YG 01 – 03 -06). For the sentiment I edited the stamp to create a happy birthday strip and used my Cricut to cut the word ‘friend’. To finish off I ink blended an A2 card base along with the ‘friend’ die cut with victorian velvet distress oxide. Lastly I added some nuvo drops.

For my second card, I used the same image from the Forever Friends Digital Stamps, this time printing it along with the sentiment for a single layer card.

I printed it a second time on printer paper and fussy cut it to create a mask, using it along with some post it tape, I inked up a rectangle area using distress oxides (in squeezed lemonade, spiced marmalade, and abandoned coral).

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to hop long over at the Joy Clair Designs blog! I had a great time creating for Joy Clair Designs over the past 6 months and maybe I’ll pop in once it a while using their products!

Happy crafting!

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.

Yay! You made it this far! Now … Make sure to comment along the way for your chance to win! Honey Bee Stamps will be giving away $30 and Heffy Doodle will be giving away £25 to their respective stores!  Be sure to comment before 11:59 PM on Feb 3rd to be entered to win!

Floral Coffee Mug | Joy Clair Designs

Hi there! Popping in today with an quick card using digital stamps from Joy Clair Designs. I used the layering trick again to add a floral image to a coffee cup! We all know that I love me some coffee cards!

I used the coffee cup from the Coffee Mood stamp set and the flower from the Hello There stamp set, both of which are digital! That means no masking! Just layering the png files! After printing and coloring, I fussy cut it out. I ink blended the card base and added a piece of pattern paper, before adding the colored image with some foam tape. And stamped a little sentiment strip using the driving by clear stamp set.

Happy Crafting!

Foiled and floral single layer card | Joy Clair Designs

Hi back again for a quick post! I’m sharing a one layer card made with some digital stamps from Joy Clair Designs.

I decided to keep this card single layer as I didn’t want to take away from the Rose Heart image from the Full Heart Digital Set so I sized it along with a sentiment to fit on a A2 panel. After coloring it with copic markers, I foiled it to add some shine, trimmed it down and added it to a coordinating card base.

And now I can share the theme for my next “ammismakecards” instagram hop with fellow mommy crafters! It’s ‘single layer’, no dimension, no foam tape, no layers! You get the idea 🙂 If you’d like to join, please send me a message on Instagram and I’ll add you to the group text!

Floral Teacup | Joy Clair Designs

3 Day streak on the blog! Say What!! Maybe 2021 is turning around for me! Popping in today with a easy card that I made using images from Joy Clair Designs. I still can’t get over how easy it is to create layered images using digital stamps!

To create the image I layered a teacup from the Coffee Mood Digital Set, with the flower image from You Are Digital Set. After coloring the image using copic markers, I fussy cut it, layered with pattern paper and added the sentiment from Hello There Digital Set, with a little ink blending to help everything blend together for a more complete look.

Thanks for stopping!
Till the next time, stay safe and keep crafting,

Floral Bouquet | Honey Bee Stamps

Hi! Most of y’all probably know that I live in the greater Seattle area and one of my favorite things to do when I worked in the city was to get fresh flowers from Pike Place Market. Oh how I miss those days! Soon, I hope. Till then we recreate flowers in our craft room.

To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring (using copics) the flower bunch from the Love You Bunches stamp set and die cutting it using the coordinating dies. Then I die cut the Floral Bouquet Wrap from vellum. I heat embossed a sentiment from the Love You Bunches stamp set using white embossing powder onto grey cardstock.

To assemble the card I started with a A2 grey cardbase, then I dry embossed the Whimsical Hearts A2 Cover Plate onto a pink ombre sheet from the love letters paper pad as the card front. Lastly I wrapped the floral image and adhered the sentiment on top.

Happy Crafting!
