Watercolored Floral CAS card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Hump Day! I’ve had a pretty productive day, probably motivated by girls night out in a few hours! So who else owns a billion water colors and doesn’t use any of them? Guilty! I loved the hand drawn images in the Riding By stamp set, and thought it would look perfect with some messy watercoloring.

I love my foam tape, and that’s probably why I have such a hard time making CAS cards! But I tried to not add TOO much dimension and left A LOT of white space!

I started by gold embossing the basket, a branch and the ‘happy birthday’ sentiment from the Riding By stamp set directly onto the card base (I used Canson XL watercolor paper). Then I heat embossed the floral bunch and some extra branches. I colored them all in with some watercolors and let it air dry. Then I die cut the layered images with the coordinating dies, and adhered them with some foam tape. Lastly, I added some gems.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I hope that you are keeping cool, its been HOT here in the PNW and all I want to do is sleep!

Happy Crafting!

Vellum Florals | Honeybee Stamps

Happy Hump Day! Sharing a card today using my new crafty favorite, white pigment ink! I don’t know why I haven’t used it before!

To create this card, I started by ink blending an A2 card panel with a blue, purple and pink ink. Then I added white pigment ink using the Whimsical Hearts stencil. I created a stacked word die cut sentiment from the Bitty Buzzwords die set.

When I placed it on the inked background, it got lost a bit, so I backed it with a floral stamp from Farm Fresh Flowers stamp set stamped and embossed on vellum. And as usual I finished off the card with 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!

CAS birthday card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Wednesday! Tomorrow is Eid, so I got TONS to do popping in with a quick birthday card with minimum coloring!

To create this card, I stared by die cutting an ombre purple sheet from the Playful Pastels paper pad with the Quatrefoil A2 Cover Plate – Top. I adhered it to an A2 top folding notecard, added stacked diecuts from the Bitty Buzzwords die set, cut from black card stock. Lastly I accented the card with some floral images from the Fancy Frosting stamp set, that I colored but hadn’t previously used!

I’ve recently been loving making quick and easy CAS cards, I hope that you are enjoying them too!

Rainbow Balloons | Honey Bee Stamps

What type of card do you make the most? For me it was thank you cards, now it’s birthday cards (I still have to work on the sending part!). And when a brand has a birthday themed release, you know that I’m all for it! Thanks to Honey Bee Stamps I finally have a balloon stencil!

Stencils and ink blending are one of the easiest ways to create a quick but fancy looking card! To create this card, I started with an A2 piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock and adhered the large balloon stencil. I inked it up in rainbow order using distress oxides in Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. The I used the second layer of smaller balloons with white pigment ink to create a shadow look.

I finished off the card with a stacked ‘happy birthday’ die cuts from Bitty Buzzwords die set.

This card is part of the Honey Bee Stamps Instagram hop. So head over to my Instagram to start hopping and be inspired!

Thanks for stopping by! Till the next time stay safe!

Sneak Peaks Day 4 | Honey Bee Stamps

It’s time again for a brand new release from Honey Bee Stamps! Today’s the last day of sneak peaks!

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.

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!

Sneak Peaks Day 3 | Honey Bee Stamps

It’s time again for a brand new release from Honey Bee Stamps! We will be sharing sneak peak daily till May 3rd so make sure to stop by daily for new peaks!

Today I’m using the new Apron die cut, along with some other baking inspired products. This release has been so much fun for the baker in me!

To create this card, I started by die cutting the pieces of the apron from a sheet of pattern paper from the team tie dye paper pad and assembled it using double sided tape. Next I stamp and colored some of the images from the baked with love stamp set with alcohol markers, and cut them using the coordinating dies, and tucked them into the ‘pocket’.

Lastly, I stamped a sentiment from the baked with love stamp set on to the pocket.

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!

Sneak Peaks Day 2 | Honey Bee Stamps

Back with a quick idea for day 2 of Honey Bee Stamps Let’s Celebrate Release. We will be sharing sneak peak daily till May 3rd so make sure to stop by daily for new peaks!

When you have a name like mine, you literally NEVER get to pick something off the shelf! Yay for alpha stamps that let you create WHATEVER you want! And that’s exactly what I did with the new Sugar Cookie Alphabet stamp set. I heat embossed the letters in gold, die cut with the coordinating die cuts. I cut a book mark shape from a sheet from the Funfetti Birthday paper pack. Added some ribbon and now my daughter has a custom book mark!

Sneak Peaks Day 1 | Honey Bee Stamps

It’s time again for a brand new release from Honey Bee Stamps! We will be sharing sneak peak daily till May 3rd so make sure to stop by daily for new peaks!

For today’s card, I decided to step out of my comfort zone to use pattern paper, along with the balloon stamps from Fancy Frosting stamp set. I stamped, colored them with copics, restamped and heated embossed with silver embossing powder, and lastly die cut them using the coordinating dies.

When trying to add them to the pattern paper that I chose from the Funfetti Birthday paper pad, which was also going to be the sentiment, they were getting lost so I added a piece of vellum to allow the balloons to pop a bit more.

Pattern paper backgrounds | Honey Bee Stamps

Hi! I’m Farhana and I hoard pattern paper and crafting supplies! Like seriously! I have no idea when and where I got the paper that I used on this card, and the die has been in my ‘to use’ pile since January!

When shopping I’m super ambitious and think that I will make ALL the interactive cards, but clearly there’s not even a handful on the blog! For today’s card, I kept most of it simple, as it took me a while to get to put together the interactive part. I used the Fortune Cookie Slider die from Honey Bee Stamps.

I die cut all the pieces from white card stock, inked blended them and added a sentiment Fortunate To Have You stamp set.

Happy Crafting!
