DIY Wreath Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Who else loves a great wreath stamp! I am obsessed with them, and pretty much have one for every season! But then Kerry from Ink Hill Revival got me thinking about stretching my supplies and I was like… umm why not use the tiny flowers from stamp sets, and make my own wreath! So after a little coloring and A LOT of die cutting, here’s what I ended up creating!

To create this card, I started by stamping the poinsettias and holly leaves from Honey Bee Stamps’ Riding By…Holiday Style stamp set with copic friendly ink and coloring them using copic markers. Next I stamped the detailed leaves with two shades of green ink and die cut ALL the images!

Copic Combos : R35, 37, 39; R59. 89; G21, 24, 28, 29; G94, 99; Y15

To assemble the card, I started with a grey card base and added a maroon sheet from the Vintage Holiday paper pad, which I trimmed down to be a little smaller than than an A2 size, and die cut it using the Pierced Fancy Flakes Cover Plate. I cut a circle using the Sweet Stacks : Circle die from a sheet of pattern paper from the same pad and embossed a sentiment from the Bitty Buzzwords : Holidays stamp set.

I finished off the card by adhering the die cut florals and leaves using liquid adhesive along with foam tape to add some dimension to create the “wreath” around the sentiment. And of course I added some jewels to the finished card.

This card is part of Honey Bee Stamps’ Instagram hop, so be sure to head over and leave a comment on my post for a chance to win!

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!

Poinsettia Thank You | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Tuesday y’all! I hope that you are all having am amazing start to the week! I got my Pretty Pink Posh Winter Release order last week, and of course I had to get inky ASAP! I picked up the Poinsettia Corners Stamp Set along with the coordinating dies. I’m super excited to add it to my holiday themed stamps from Pretty Pink Posh!

To create this card, I started by stamping the 2 larger poinsettia bouquets on to white card stock using copic friendly black ink. I colored them using Copic Markers, die cut and then added some glitter glue in the flower centers along with accents using a white gel pen.

For the sentiment I die cut the Thank You Script Die from matte golden paper 3 times and stacked it. I finished off the card by adding the floral die cuts and the word sentiment to a pattern paper trimmed down to an A2 size and finished off with some Holiday Jewels Mix.

Newton’s Nook Designs October Release – Day 4 – Prehistoric Christmas & Christmas Pheasant + Coordinating Dies, Heartfelt Holidays

Happy Thursday! It’s the last day of reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and its been so exciting to share a ton of inspiration with y’all this week! It might not be the holiday season yet, but it sure looks like it’s here in my craft room! Today we are showcasing the Prehistoric Christmas & Christmas Pheasant + Coordinating Dies, Heartfelt Holidays stamp sets! Here’s how I was inspired!

Reveal week if definitely ending with a bang as I have 3 cards to share with y’all today!

I created the first card using the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set, the latest addition to the Heartfelt collection, which happens to be one of my favorites collections from Newton’s Nook Designs!

To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring the image using copic markers. Then I die cut it with the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frame Die Set (the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set, along with ALL the Heartfelt stamps, work with the Heart Frame Die Set and the Banner Trio Die Set.)

To finish off the card, I added the die cut heart to an A2 piece of pattern paper from the NEW Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. I created the sentiment using the word “merry” from the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set cut from golden card stock and trimmed the “merry Christmas” from the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set. I felt like the word die cut was fading into the colored image, so I backed it with a smaller heart die cut from vellum. Lastly, I added some jewels!

For my second card, I started by stamping and coloring two of the dinosaurs from the Prehistoric Christmas stamp set, and die cutting them with the coordinating dies.

To create the scene, I started by die cutting two hills, using a sheet of pattern paper from the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. Next I inked up the card bases using the Snowfall Stencil with some light blue ink. layered the hills and dinosaurs onto the card front, stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set and finished off the card with some snow flake shaped sequins.

For my last card of the reveal, I made a CAS-ish card using the mini Christmas Pheasant stamp set. I started by coloring and die cutting the little pheasant. Next, I embossed a card front using the Holiday Foliage Stencil.

To finish of the card, I die cut multiple banners using the Frames & Flags Die Set and Banner Trio Die Set, from white card stock for the sentiment and the pattern paper pad, Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. I layered them on to the embossed card front, and added the Pheasant image!

It might not be the holiday season yet, but it sure looks like it’s here in my craft room! Today we are showcasing the Christmas Cocktails & Dairy Christmas along with their coordinating Dies!

Both this sets challenged my creativity as they aren’t my “go to” images, not sure about the cocktails, but the animals and critters are slowly growing on me!

Next I die cut a grass edge, along with a hill from a sheet of pattern paper from the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad.I also die cut a fence from white card and inked it up a bit using some brown ink. Lastly I die cut a banner from the Banner Trio Die Set and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on to in.

To assemble the card, I created a cloud background using blue card stock, the Petite Cloud Stencil and some texture paste. After it dried I added all the die cut elements along with the colored image using a combination of foam tape and liquid glue to add some dimension.

For my second card, I stamped, colored and die cut all the images from the Christmas Cocktails stamp set.

Next, I created the background for card, starting with stamping and embossing a sentiment in the center of an A2 card base. Then I inked up in a blue ombre and then using the Petite Snow Stencil along with white pigment ink. Once the ink dried, I shifted the stencil and added some glitter gel to the panel.

Once the glitter gel dried, I added all the cocktail images around the sentiment using foam tape.

Hug In A Mug Stamps & Dies, and Mugs & Kisses Dies, along with the Vintage Holiday Paper Pad.

To create this card, I started by embossing the Falling Snow Background stamp with silver embossing powder onto an A2 piece of white card stock, and lightly inked it up with some light blue ink. Next, I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Hug In A Mug Stamp Set on black card stock and die cutting with the coordinating dies.

Newton’s Nook Designs October Release – Day 1 – Snow Much Cheer & Newton’s Stocking + coordinating Dies, Meowy Christmas Paper Pad

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! It might not be the holiday season yet, but it sure looks like it’s here in my craft room! Today we are showcasing the Snow Much Cheer & Newton’s Stocking along with their coordinating Dies, and Newton’s Nook Designs first ever Meowy Christmas Paper Pad! Here’s how I was inspired!

I usually hoard pattern paper, but I can’t hoard Newton’s Nook Designs first paper pad!! it’s adorable and perfect for the holidays!

For my first card, started by stamping the image from the Newton’s Stocking stamp set, and colored in Newton using copic markers and die cut it using the coordinating die. Then I paper pieced the stocking from a paw print sheer from the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad.

Next I created the background using two sheets from the same paper pad, cutting it into strips and alternating and adding them to the card front. When I tried to add the colored die cut, it was drowning in the background, so I die cut a vellum circle using Circle Frames Die Set and stamped the sentiment on it. I layered it with the colored image and finished off the card with some jewels.

For my second card, I started by stamping and coloring all the Snow Much Cheer stamp set with copic markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies. At this point I decided that I loved all the images and wanted to use them all on my card, and went with a slimline card!

To create the slimline card, I started buy die cutting the scallop rectangle from the Slimline Frames & Portholes Die Set and the frame from the Slimline Frames & Windows Die Set. Then I die cut the frame again from Slimline Frames & Windows Die Set again, from a sheet of the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. I stamped and embossed a sentiment from the same stamp on to one of the pattern paper squares and placed in the middle of the card. I arranged the snowmen and women on the sides of the cards and added some jewels to finish off the card.

Would you like to win the “Snow Much Cheer” or the “Newton’s Stocking”  Stamp Set? We will choose ONE lucky winner for each stamp set!

Hugs in a Mug | Mama Elephant

Happy Thursday Y’all! I hope that you’ve been enjoying the last of summer as we transition into FALL! Yes in CAPITOL letters as I love all things fall, especially all the cozy rainy crafty sessions, with a cup of hot chocolate on the side! I love my hot drinks in the fall and winter, so of course this cute Hot Cocoa stamp set from Mama Elephant jumped into my cart as soon as it was released!

To create this card, I started by stamping all of the images from the Hot Cocoa stamp set onto some heavy weight card stock and coloring them using copic markers. The I cut them out using the coordinating dies.

Copic Combos : BG 13, 32, 45; YG01, 03, 21; R01, 08, 11, 14, 24, 32, 43; C1; N4, 6; YR00, 01; E11, 13, 15, 27, 31, 55, 57

To create the shaker background, I die cut the Six Window Cover die from some white card stock and inked it up using shabby shutters and worn lipstick distress oxide inks, leaving a bit of white space in the middle, I backed the die cut with acetate, and layered on the foam tape and filled it with some seed beads.

I finished off the card using a sentiment from the same stamp set, embossed in white on to black card stock and trimmed down into a strip. I adhered it to the center/white area of the card, and arranged the colored images around it, adding one of the little accents to each one.
