Rainbow Birthday Wishes | Lawn Fawnatics #116

Happy Sunday! Popping in quickly to share a quick, no stamping card inspired by the latest Lawn Fawnatics challenge – “Let’s Celebrate!

This card was inspired by my “no buy” challenge along with Carly’s latest card.

To create this card, I started by inking up a A2 piece of Bristol Smooth card stock to create a rainbow using distress oxide inks (in Shaded Lilac, Salvage Patina, Twisted Citron, Spiced Marmalade, Abandoned Coral, Kitsch Flamingo).

Next I embossed an A2 card front using the Echo Park Stencil – Birthday Balloons and then die cut the Giant Happy Birthday die from Lawn Fawn. I backed the embossed, die cut sheet with some acetate, and using the positive die cut as a guide, I adhered the pieces to the acetate.

Lastly, I backed the shaker front with foam tape and filled it with star sequins and added the rainbow inked background.

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

Happy Crafting!

Monster Birthday! | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy end of Stamptember! It’s a big month for stamping and I was so excited to be able to join in for the first time! Incase you missed the posts, you can check them out here and here. After I bought literally everything this month, I have put myself on spending freeze, indefinitely! I know that I am going to end up breaking it for the Pretty Pink Posh winter release, so here I am trying to justify my most recent purchases from them! I used the Monster Hugs stamp set earlier in the month here and y’all loved it so much that I decided to put it out again for a cute-not-spooky birthday-not-halloween card! I am tempted to attempt an Halloween card, so maybe I’ll add that to my “to create” list!

To create this card, I started by stamping all the monsters from the Monster Hugs stamp set along with all the “accessories” from the Birthday Friends stamp set. I colored them using copic markers. You can see how I colored them here. And then die cut them using the coordinating dies, Monster Hugs and Birthday Friends.

Copic Combo : BG 10, 11, 13, 15; RV 21, 23, 25; V 01, 04, 05, 06, Y13, 15; YG 21, 23, 25; YR 01, 02, 04, 07

Next I die cut a stitched square using the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Squares from white card stock, and dry embossed it using the Birthday Background Stencil. I die cut all three of the frames from the Stitched Photo Frames die set.

With a little masking, I stamped the sentiment from the Cupcake Critters stamp set on to the two larger frames. I adhered the frames and colored die cuts using a mix of foam tape and liquid adhesive to be able to layer the images and add some dimension. As usual I finished of the card with lots of jewels.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you were inspired to create something! Make sure to tag me @everydayengineered and @prettypinkposh on Instagram and join the Facebook group so that we can see what you have created!

Faux Window Fall Cards | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday! Hope y’alls week is off to a great start! Popping in today with some faux window cards using products from Newton’s Nook Designs and my favorite fall crafting product, Kraft paper!

To make today’s cards, I started by stamping the larger images from the Signs of Fall and the Paw-tumn Newton stamp sets on to heavy weight white card stock and colored them in using copic markers (and colored pencils for the Signs of Fall image). Once I was done coloring I die cut the images using coordinating die (Signs of Fall and Paw-tumn Newton).

To finish my first card, using the image from the Paw-tumn Newton stamp set, I started by dry embossing an A2 piece of Kraft card stock using the basketweave stencil. Then I die cut an offset window from the embossed card stock using the largest stitched circle from the Circle Frames Die Set. Next I stamped the Fall Roundabout to line up with die cut on the embossed card front on a A2 card base using brown ink. I added the die cut card front to the card base using foam tape to add dimension and create a faux window look. I added the colored image from the Paw-tumn Newton along with a sentiment from the Fall Roundabout stamp set embossed on a banner die cut from the Banner Trio Die Set. And lastly, I added some jewels!

Copic Combo : C1, 3, 5; B00, 02, 05; Y13, 15, YG03, 63, 67; E 13, 15, 37; YR04, 07, Y17

The second card I created is very similar, except that I used the Heart Frame Die Set along with the Heartfelt Fall stamp set.

After creating a similar faux window like my first card, I added the colored image from the Signs of Fall stamp set embossed with a sentiment from the Snowman Greetings stamp set (inspired by the fall porch decor!) and of course added jewels to finish off the card.

Copic Combo : C3, 5; YR04, 07, Y17; Y13, 15; YG03, 63; G21, 24; R08, 24; BG10 Polychoromos Pencil :

I hope these cards inspire 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!

Embossed Shaker Birthday Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Hump Day! I keep thinking it’s Tuesday, so I clearly need to get started on my extremely long to do list! So let’s keep it short and sweet here and get straight to the card!

This card is possibly my most CAS card yet! I love the end result and it was so quick and easy to make! Just make sure that you have heat resistant acetate!

To create this card, I started by dry embossing the small balloon stencil from Layering Balloons Stencils on to an A2 piece of white paper. Next I die cut the shadow die from the Birthday die cut set to create the shaker window. I heat embossed the word birthday from the Birthday stamp set with white embossing powder and the happy on to a strip of black card stock. I created the shaker window by layering the acetate behind the die cut window with liquid adhesive, and added lots of foam tape to create “box”, filled it with the latest fad, clay confetti! and backed it with an A2 piece of card stock. Lastly I added the strip sentiment to finish off the card!

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!

Shell-ebrate! | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday! We are hopefully at the tail end of a heat wave here in the PNW so we’ll be ‘shell-ebrating as soon as we aren’t boiling! I did manage to finish reading a book and make a card while staying at home!

I love combining old and new products when making cards, here I paired the newly released Seashell Roundabout stamp set with the retiring Narly Mermaids Stamp Set, coordinating Narly Mermaids Die Set and the Tropical Fish Stencil (which are on sale!! So its a great time to add to cart!).

To create this card, I started by dry embossing the Tropical Fish Stencil on to the card base. Next I heat embossed in white, the Seashell Roundabout image and ink blended with blue and die cut it into a square. I heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set onto a stitched rectangle die cut and ink blended it with the same blue as the previous piece. Lastly, I copic colored the narwhale and the fishes from the Narly Mermaids Stamp Set, die cut them using the coordinating Narly Mermaids Die Set. and added some jewels as a finishing touch!

I hope this card inspires you to create something! 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!

I’ve really been trying to experiment with different card making styles, so today I made a no stamp AND no coloring card, surprised?? Y’all know that I love ALL the color and ALL the layers, so this was definitely out of my comfort zone!

To create this card, I started my dry embossing the die cuts from the Lovely Layer : Hydrangeas, randomly arranging them on an A2 piece of white card stock to create a textured background.

To finish off the card, I die the “happy birthday” (in black) and the shadow in vellum from the Bitty Buzzwords die cuts.

Peony Friendship Card | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Thursday! For the first time in FOREVER I have weekend plans, A LOT of them! So keeping this short so I can go and tackle my LONG to do list and getting straight to the card!

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I love embossing and florals! Meaning I’m super excited about spring and creating with ALL the florals stamps!! For this card, I used the Peony Blooms Stamp Set from Newton’s Nook Designs. I stamped the images with a light brown ink, colored with copic markers (RV14-13-10, YG23-13-03) and then stamped with watermark ink and embossed in gold. Since I don’t have the Peony Blooms Die Set I fussy cut the images.

So create the background I used the Bold Blooms Stencil to dry emboss an white A2 card base. Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from the Blooming Botanicals Stamp Set on to a banner die cut from the Frames & Flags Die Set. And of course I finished off with some jewels!

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release – Day 4 – Newton’s Rainy Day Trio and Daffodils + coordinating Dies

Welcome back for Day 3 of reveal week at Newton’s Nook Designs. Today we are showcasing the Rainy Day Trio and Daffodils stamp set and coordinating Dies. Here’s how I was inspired.

Save the best for last, right! These two sets are my favorite from the release!

For my first card, I made a slimline card using the new Daffodils stamp set. I colored them using copic markers and die cut them. Then using the Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set and Slimline Frames & Windows Die Set, I die cut a white scalloped rectangle along with squares out of green pattern paper. For the center of the card, before stamping the sentiment, I layered the Slimline Masking Circles & Squares Stencil Set along with the Petite Flowers Stencil and inked it up with some yellow ink. Lastly, I added the daffodils with some foam tape and a few sequins.

For my second card, I colored the Newton’s Rainy Day Trio stamp set using zig real brush markers in a rainbow manner, die cut and set it aside. To create the background, I started by embossing a light blue piece of cardstock using the Raindrops Stencil, then I used the same stencil to ink up a piece of vellum with blue pigment ink and quickly added glitter embossing powder before the ink dried. I embossed the sentiment and die cut the vellum using a scalloped circle from the Circle Frames Die Set.

Newton’s Nook Designs February Release – Day 1 – Spring Roundabout, Basketweave and Bunny Tails Stencils

Happy Monday! It’s reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! Today we are showcasing the Spring Roundabout (works with Circle Frames & Banner Trio Dies)  & Basketweave and Bunny Tails Stencils. Here’s how I was inspired!

For my first card I used the Spring Roundabout stamp set to create a shaker card, along with the Basketweave Stencil.

I started by heat embossing the roundabout image with white embossing powder onto heat resistant acetate. Then I used some pattern paper along with the largest two circles from the Circle Frames to create a ‘frame’ for the shaker, I glued it to the acetate, added foam tape and filled it with some sequins that match the pattern paper. Lastly, before adhering the shaker part directly to the card base, I dry embossed the Basketweave Stencil to the kraft card base.

For my second card, I heat embossed the bunny stencil onto some white card stock with white embossing powder. (I just smooshed my ink pad onto the paper with the stencil attached to it.) Then I ink blended (using distress oxides) in a little pastel rainbow, make sure to buff your cardstock after ink blending so the embossing pops! Lastly I added a sentiment from the Spring Roundabout stamp set on to a banner die cut using the Banner Trio Dies.

Would you like to win the “Spring Roundabout” Stamp Set? This stamp set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!

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!
