Hi! Back again sharing a simple rainbow card, but with fall tones instead of bright! I don’t know if you have noticed or not, but Fall is one of my favorite seasons to craft for!
To create this card, I started by cutting down a A2 size card front from Bristol Smooth Cardstock. Next I stamped and embossed (in gold) the Harvest Blooms Background. While heat setting it, the paper warped a tad bit, so I ran it though my die cutting machine to flatten it out.
Next I inked it up in rainbow order using muted colors, perfect for fall! I finished off with some jewels and a stacked die cut “hello” from the Darling Dahlias die cuts.
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!
Hey fellow crafters! Hope that you had a relaxing and crafty weekend! I spent most of mine working on these cards, challenging myself to use critter stamps! I have a huge collection from Pretty Pink Posh, most haven’t even gotten inky! Yes, working on using on ALL my stamps before buying more, failing miserably as I have stamps coming in the mail. But I have slowed down!
I was having a hard time finding a starting point, then came across this mood board from Butterfly Reflections Ink. Double challenge accepted as color palette isn’t my go to colors! And here’s what I came up with!
For the first card, I started by adhering the Birthday Background Stencil to a A2 piece of cardstock with some washi tape. Then I ink blended using Twisted Citron distress oxide ink, and added a layer of glitter gel. At this point take off the stencil and clean it off before the glitter hardens. Let the glitter paper dry for a few hours before assembling the card. I colored an image from the Party Friends Stamp Set, with copics, and diecut the happy birthday sentiment from some ink blended card stock (I used broken china). To assemble, I trimmed down the stenciled card front and adhered it to a blue A2 card front. Then I added the colored image using some foam tape and stacked the die cut sentiment to add dimension.
Hey y’all! I’m back 🙂 needed a little break from social media, its been a little mentally draining being on there. I recently heard someone say ‘don’t consume but create content’, and that’s what I’ve decided I’m going to do going forward!
I might not have been sharing, but I have been creating and coloring A LOT! It’s literally the only productive thing that I can do while pumping (sorry TMI), and it’s been helping me stay sane, COVID and all. Enough about that, let’s get back to the cards I came on here to share!
I made these two cards using only the contents of the Gina K designsNature’s Touch card kit from their July release. I love using kits to make cards as I don’t get overwhelmed with products! My last card with this set was watercolored, so this time I figured I would share an easier way to color the images, especially if you are mass producing cards.
Ever color a stamped image and just can’t decide how to use it? Well I was really stumped with this floral image from the latest Gina K designsNature’s Touch card kit from their June release. After a lot of back and forth and input from a friend I came up with this card. Not my best work in my opinion, what do you think?
To create this card I started by stamping and embossing the large flower and the leaves from The Best Flowers stamp set on water color paper. I then water colored it using Gansai Tambi watercolors. I die cut them once they dried. To assemble the card I used the Ornamental Fans stencil also included in the kit, and ink blended the background using Distress Oxides Inks (in spun sugar) using Taylored Expression blending brushes. I embossed the sentiment on to some black card stock and trimmed it down. I adhered the sentiment and floral image to the card front and added some Nuvo Drops as a finishing touch.
Thanks for stopping by and as always here’s a list of products I used :
Guess what! I’m a guest designer with Gina K designs for their June release. Seeing as Baby R came early I only just got to creating with the Nature’s Touch card kit. It was the perfect kit to get started on making some thank you cards to send out to friends and family for their gifts and treats to celebrate Baby R, from a distance of course!
Making CAS cards is a challenge for me as I love going overboard with the layers and embellishments, but CAS cards are perfect for bulk cards, just change up the color for variety!
To create these cards I started by stamping the floral image from the The Best Flowers stamp set with copic friendly ink onto heavy weight card stock. I colored them in using different color combinations (I will list them below). After I was done coloring I embossed the sentiment in gold onto the card base. To assemble the card I trimmed down the colored card stock, layered it with a card stock to match the floral image, and finally glued it down to a card base. That’s it! 30 mins and you have 3 cards!
As always, thanks for stopping by and here are a list of supplies that I used :
