Farm Fresh Floral Card | ScrapbookPal

Happy Saturday! I’m up on the Scrapbookpal blog today sharing this fun floral card (my favourite type of card to make!) along with a new (to me!) technique, ink blending on kraft paper. 

To create this card I started by stamping the floral arrangement and the water can image from the Farm Fresh Flowers Stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps using my MISTI stamp positioner and Memento Rich Cocoa Ink. I left the stamp in the MISTI as I plan to double stamp.

I colored them using copic markers in the following combinations :
Leaves : G21, G24; YG03, YG63; YG03, YG13, YG23
Stems : E55, E59
Flowers : V12, V15, V17; R37, R39; RV63, RV66; R05, YR04; Y35, YR07
Water can : N0, N2, N4, N6; BV00, BV02

After coloring I placed the floral arrangement back into the MISTI and stamped the image using Versamark Watermark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. Then I die cut the colored images using the coordinating dies

Next I created the background for the card using the new Art Deco Patterns stencil. I used the one with the larger masked area, along with distress oxide inks in Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold.

I added the colored floral arrangement with foam tape on top of the water can image. For the sentiment I used the “thankful” stamp from the Bitty Buzzwords : Fall stamp set along with the “For your Friendship”. I heat embossed both on to kraft cardstock using Versamark Watermark ink and gold embossing powder. I die cut the word “thankful” using the coordinating dies and trimmed down the “for your frienship” into a strip. I added the thankful die cut using foam tape and adhered the sentiment strip with some liquid adhesive. 

I hope you enjoyed this card that I created and it inspires you to create something fun for fall!

Happy Crafting!

Simon Says Stamp – Honey Bee Stamps STAMPtember® 2021 Exclusive Collaboration

Hi Crafty Friends! I’m super excited to share today’s STAMPtember exclusive collaboration with Honey Bee Stamps! The Be a Sunflower is a fun stamp set that’s perfect for ALL things Fall! I know it’s a limited edition set, but I can’t wait to use it again!

I’ve recently been loving mini slimline cards, and when I realized the row of sunflowers on the Be a Sunflower was the perfect size for a mini slimline, I couldn’t resist!

I started by die cutting two slimline rectangles using the Mini Slimline Stack Dies, on one stamped the full image using brown ink and my MISTI. I colored in the image using copic markers (combinations listed below), and them placed it back in the MISTI to stamp the image again using watermark ink and emboss using gold embossing powder. Then I fussy cut the image (you can also use the coordinating die if you wish).

Copic Combo : Y13, 15, 17; YG01, 03, 23; E13, 15, 37

I ink blended a little bit of Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink on to the bottom of the fussy cut colored image. On the second mini slimline die cut, I created an inked background using Wilted Violet, Spun Sugar and Dried Marigold and added some water splatter. I embossed the sentiment from the same Be a Sunflower stamp set, added the colored image to it with foam tape and finished off with some jewels.

I hope you like this adorable set and the card I’ve made, its my first STAMPtember where I’m creating cards, so I’m super excited! Thanks so much for stopping by today and if you like this set, grab it before it sells out! As it’s a STAMPtember exclusive and won’t be restocked! 

Happy Crafting!

Pop of Sunflower | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Friday! I don’t know what you, but this weekend could not have come quicker! AND it’s raining this weekend and I am secretly so excited to be able to stay at home with no FOMO, watch football, catch up on chores, bake and craft! Lots of fun stuff that’s sitting in my “new to use” bin!

While editing the pictures for today’s cards, I was like woahhh, I made a card with no stamping! Wow! That’s so unlike me! I’m usually ALL about the stamping and coloring (I love my copic collection!) Any hoo, I hope you like this CAS-ish card as much as I do!

To creat this card, I started my die cutting the Autumn Splendor Cover Plate from heavy white card stock (I needed to use a metal shim!) and cover the back with A LOT of foam tape to add dimension! After a minute of removing all the backing, I adhered it to an A2 card base.

Next up was some more die cutting! This time, I die cut all the pieces from the Lovely Layers : Sunflowers Die Set, die cutting the leaves twice. I inked them up using distress oxide inks ink shades of yellow and green, and splattered them with water, black and brown paint to add some depth. I match them up and layered them using liquid adhesive and added the sunflower to the card base using foam tape, so that I could tuck the leaves under it.

Lastly, I die cut the Thanks die cut from Kraft and golden glitter card stock to create a stacked sentiment die stack, and adhered it to the bottom on the card. All done! This really was an easy card to make, but looks SO FANCY!

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!

Circle Thanks Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Mon- oh wait it’s Wednesday! Thats what happens when its a long weekend + you take extra time off to sneak in one last summer vacation before its all things Fall!

Sharing a really easy card today, one that’s a great way to start transitioning into fall colors!

To create this card, I started by adhering the solid layer of the Scattered Leaves Background Stencil to some Bristol Smooth Cardstock. I inked it up with Distress Oxide Ink in a Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemon and Ripe Persimmon, and added the second layer of the stencil to add the details using white pigment ink. This toned down the bright colors and made it more muted for Fall!

To finish off the card, I die cut two circles using the largest of the circles from the new Sweet Stacks Circle dies, to create the base and used the next one to cut the inked panel. I stacked the sentiment die “thanks” using golden glitter card stock as the final layer 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!

Fall Rainbow | Honeybee Stamps

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!

Darling Dahlias | Honeybee Stamps

I love flowers but hate gardening, so coloring flower stamps are pretty much the next best thing! Dahlias are so common in PNW in the fall, but I still can’t get enough of them! I love picking them up at the farmers market!

To create this card, I started by stamping all the images from the all the images from the Darling Dahlias stamp set (I ended up using only one of the large flowers) with intense black ink on to heavy weight white card stock. I colored then in using copic markers (combinations listed below) and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

To create the background, I created a blue inked ombre background using distress oxide inks, once dry, I layered it with the basketweave stencil and added some white pigment ink (one of my fav techniques! Once it dried, I arranged the flower using foam tape for dimension, added jewels to match and finished off with a die cut sentiment “hello” from the bitty buzzwords die set.

Copic Combos : RV63, 66, 69 and YG03, 63, 67

Birthday Gnomes | Mama Elephant

Back after enjoying some time of social media, not really time off since I planned my first party in almost two years! It was so good to see friends, celebrate my little one and enjoy the summer weather!

If you haven’t seen these posts (here and here), I have been dusting off my Mama Elephant stamps (#hoarder) and sharing entries for the #mamaelephant2021gdcall! Today’s card was a special one as I custom made it for my close friends birthday, and if you can’t tell, she loves gnomes!!!

To creat this card, I started by stamping all the images (didn’t end up using them all!) and multiples of the gnomes holding the sign, from the Little Gnome Agenda stamp set. I colored them in rainbow colors, added the letters of my friends name using the little alphabet stamps from the Little Signage Agenda stamp set. I die cut the gnomes using the coordinating dies.

Next I created the scene to add the gnome, starting with the Slim Card Basics die set from Mama Elephant. I die cut the scallop rectangle once and the stitched rectangle 4 times. Then I die cut 3 of the 4 stitched rectangles with the Slimline Horizon Borders from Honey Bee Stamps. I inked them with shades of green to add the “hills” and “grass”, and used the Petite Clouds Stencil from Newton’s Nook Designs on the forth die cut to create the sky. I added the layers with foam tape, ending with a very thick card, but I wasn’t to worried as I wasn’t mailing it!

To finish off the card, I started by adding the die cut gnome images, some with glue, some with foam tape for added dimension, and accented them with some flowers from Pretty Pink Posh’s Bunny Friends Stamp Set. Lastly, I remembered that I did not add my sentiment! Quickly stamped one from the Simple Sentiments Stamp Set, this is a perfect example where the tiny sentiments save the day!

As mentioned before I am adding this as an entry to the #MamaElephantCD2021Call! You can find my previous entries here and here.

Thanks for stopping by today! If you are every inspired by work you can copy away! If you do share on social media, please tag me so that I can see!

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!
