Floral Bouquet Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Monday crafty friends! I hope that you are having a great start to the week! If not, make sure to sneak in some crafty time! Popping in today to share a quick-ish card cause sometimes you just don’t have the time or energy for detailed coloring! That’s when the newest coordinating ink blending stencils come in handy! I avoided them for a while, now I am hooked!

To create this card I started by stamping all three of the images from Honey Bee StampsFloral Vase stamp set with VersaMark watermark ink and Lawn Fawn gold embossing powder to emboss.

Next I inked up the “vase” using Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink.

The I ink blended the leaves using Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn distress oxide inks.

Next up where the flowers using distress oxide ink in Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet.

The last layer of ink blending was the center of the flowers that I added using  Scattered Straw distress oxide ink.

Next I die cut out the inked images along with the card and pick for the sentiment using the coordinating dies. I embossed a sentiment on to the card.

To finish off the card I added a little texture to the card front using dry embossing and the Crystal Kaleidoscope Background stencil and assembled the images using a combination of foam tape and liquid adhesive.

Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something! 

Till the next time, take care!

Greenery and Coffee | Newton’s Nook Design

Happy Thursday! Well it’s basically a few hours to Friday, which means it pretty much the weekend! I missed the February Caffeinated Christmas Card Challenge, but I really wanted to make sure that I sneak on into the March challenge, Green.

I stretched “green” to greenery” and added a lot of foliage to my coffee mugs! And since it’s winter on my card I added some whipped cream topping!

To create this card, I started by stamping the image from the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set twice and die cut it with the mug die cuts from the Mugs and Kisses die set. I colored in the images using copic markers and added the whipped cream die cuts that I covered with some glitter nuvo drops, and set aside to dry.

Next I created the background for the card by embossing Holiday Foliage Stencil onto some green cardstock. I also die cut a banner from the Banner Trio Die Set from and embossed a sentiment from the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set on to it. I also die cut a scalloped oval from vellum using the Oval Frames Die Set to add behind mug to help them pop. As always, I finished off with some jewels.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something and you get some crafty time this weekend!

Get Cracking on Christmas | Pretty Pink Posh


I finally finished my card for #getcrackingonChristmas for Jenn Shurkus‘ monthly challenge, using Claire’s Card On Christmas Card Challenge monthly theme of “background stamp” as my starting point! I had the image colored in already so managed to put it together during nap time, and now racing against the clock to share this card before little R wakes up!

To create this card, I started by embossing the Falling Snow Background from Honey Bee Stamps using white embossing powder. Next I inked it up using distress oxide inks (in chipped sapphire, broken china and salty ocean), buffed it to let the white pop through again, added some gold paint splatters, and set it aside to dry.

Next I colored the wreath from Pretty Pink Posh’s Winter Wreath Stamp Set using copic makers, then embossed it using gold embossing powder and die cut it using the coordinating die. I die cut a banner from some blue card stock, and embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set and added it behind the wreath, and added the wreath to the inked background with foam tape. Lastly I added some jewels from the Holiday Jewels Mix.

If you made it this far, thank you! If you are inspired by any of my work please tag me on Instagram as I would love to see your recreation!

Plants Make My Heart Happy | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Thursday! Woah it’s been a busy week so far here on the blog! I am really enjoying having higher energy levels to actually go more things then read in bed! As much as I like a good book, I enjoy other things too! Like crafting!

I finally got to use another new stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps, that I got just before the 2021 ended!

To create this card, I started by stamping one of the leaves and pots from the Happy Plants stamp set and colored it using copics, and die cut it using the coordinating dies.

Copic Combo : V01, 12, RV63; E13, 15, 37; YG03, 17, 67

To assemble the card, I layered a piece of green card stock with a die cut of the Mod A2 Cover Plate cut from the same color paper. Next I die cut a Swirling Leaves Pierced A2 Cover Plate from white card stock and trimmed it down using one of the die from the Sweet Stacks: Rectangles. Lastly I embossed a sentiment from the Hello Sweetheart stamp set in gold onto black card stock and cut it out using the coordinating die.

Coffee and Copics | Reverse Confetti

Hello, Hello! I managed to finish my 4th card for the Caffeinated Christmas Card ChallengeSnowflakes that ends in a few hours and wanted to quickly pop in to share it!

To create today’s card I used a stamp set from Reverse Confetti, the sponsor of this challenge!

To create this card I started by stamping on of the mug images from the Brew It stamp set in a teal color and die cut using the coordinating die. I also stamped the copics from Honey Bee StampsLet’s Get Crafty and colored them with copics (B02, 05, 12 and C00, 1, 3), before die cutting them using the coordinating dies.

To create the background I used distress oxide inks (in tumbled glass, broken china and mermaid lagoon) along with the Falling Snow Background stamp embossed in white on to some Bristol Smooth card stock. After adding the color I die cut it using the Circle of Waves die cut. I layered all the elements on to an A2 card base and finished off with a few sequins.

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!

It’s the holidays! | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Hump Day! Not sure if it’s the fact that my weekend starts earlier this week or the fact that I’m still playing catch up from the weekend, but this week is flying by! Can you believe it’s 2022 in like 23 days 🤯 Anyways let’s get back to card making, are y’all done with holiday cards?? If not here’s one that can be mass produced! 

Ink blending is one of my favorite ways to add color quickly for cards, you can see here, here, and many more ideas here.

To create this card, I started by inking up an A2 piece of Bristol Smooth card stock with distress oxide inks in chipped sapphire, abandoned coral, dried marigold, crushed olive and salvage patina. Next I die cut both the Pierced Fancy Flakes Cover Plate and the Fancy Flakes Cover Plate, layered from the same sheet of A2 white card stock.

To finish off the card I die the words “merry Christmas” from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holidays Dies from golden card stock, and used a few left over colored die cuts from the Riding By…Holiday Style stamp set, and of course I added some jewels!

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 Thanksgiving | Honey Bee Stamps

Woah! What a day it’s been, long pre-thanksgiving to-do list, kid 1 caught the sniffles and I committed to a baking job, AND I have a card project due tonight. Why I ask, why do I do this to myself LOL. It’s okay, I have a to-do list, I’m not making a turkey, so I have a ton of time till 1PM tomorrow. Make a plan, stick to it, and things will get done. I digress. Let’s get to today’s card so I can move on to the next thing.

After a long 18-ish months, its been more than heartwarming to be able to gather, so my card to dedicated to all those who can finally travel, and create new memories cause we are always better together!

To create this card I stamped, and colored many of the images from the Better Together stamp set. I used copics, and then die cut them using the coordinating dies. I also stamped and embossed the sentiment on to black card stock using gold embossing powder and die cut it using the coordinating die.

Next I inked up a piece of card stock slightly larger than an A2 size with distress inks (abandoned coral, dried marigold, crushed olive and salvage patina). I sprayed it with water and then splattered some gold paint on it. Once it dried I die cut it using the Autumn Splendor Cover Plate.

I added the die cut panel to a Kraft card base and then added the colored images along with the sentiment and as always finished off with some jewels.

Happy Thanksgiving crafty friends!

Happy Crafting!
