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.

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! 
Happy Crafting!

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! 

Happy Crafting!

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Day 3 – Heartfelt Meows & Heartfelt Woofs (works with Heart Frames Dies and Banner Trio Dies) 

Happy Wednesday! It’s the first reveal week of 2022 over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! Today we are showcasing the Heartfelt Meow and Heartfelt Woof stamp set, that work with the previously released Heart Frames Dies and Banner Trio Dies.

For today’s card, I wanted to share ideas that don’t involve detailed coloring and us pattern paper, cause we all hoard pattern paper, right?

Believe it or not, my first card had ZERO coloring! A little stamping, and a bit more die cutting and we were done! This is a perfect card for mass producing!

To create this card, I started my cutting down a sheet of pattern paper from the Meows paper pad to an A2 size. Next I die cut the stitched rectangles using the A7 Frames and Banner Die Set. I lined them on the card front. Then I stamped the image from the Heartfelt Woof stamp set on to Kraft paper using brown ink and die cut it using the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frames Dies. I finished off the card by stamping a sentiment from the same Heartfelt Woof on to a banner die cut using the Banner Trio Dies.

For my second card, I decided to add some color, but this time using ink blending so that it’s quick!

To create this card, I started by stamping the image from the Heartfelt Meow stamp set with watermark ink and embossed it in white. I inked it up in a rainbow using distress oxides (in twisted citron, squeezed lemon, ripe persimmon, festive berry, picked raspberry) and added a few splatters of water. Once it dried I die cut it using the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frames Dies.

To finish off the card, I dry embossed the Petite Hearts Stencil on to the card front and added a sentiment from the Heartfelt Meow stamp set on to a banner die cut from Banner Trio Dies.

Newton’s Nook Designs January Release – Day 2 – Orchids + coordinating Dies

Happy Tuesday! It’s the first reveal week of 2022 over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited to share a ton of inspiration with you this week! Today we are showcasing the Orchids stamp set along with the coordinating Dies.

To create my card, I paired it with the new A7 Frames and Banner Die Set that was revealed yesterday.

To create this card, I started by stamping the Orchids image from the stamp set twice with copic friendly ink on to heavy weight white card stock, and colored in using copic markers (BV02, 00, 000; BV04, 08; Y17, 15; E15, 37; C00) and die cut them using the coordinating Dies.

Next I created the card front by die cutting all the layers of the A7 Frames and Banner Die Set. I left the base and the frame in white, but inked up the stitched rectangles using distress oxides in Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet. I tried to add the Petite Hearts Stencil with white pigment ink, but it didn’t really work as my purples were too light but don’t worry I have more card with the stencil!

I finished of the card with two sentiments from the Orchids stamp set embossed in gold and add the Orchids using foam tape and finished off with some jewels.

Cup of Cocoa | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Monday y’all! I hope that you had a great crafty and caffeinated weekend! Popping in today with a winter themed card, incase you are done with holiday crafting, but still not ready to move on to Valentines!

I started this card by stamping ALL the images from the Cup of Cocoa stamp set on to white card stock and colored them with copic markers (sorry no combos as I used so many I made a mess and lost track!). Once the coloring was done, I fussy cut the images (I finally ordered the die, they just haven’t arrived yet!)

I die cut a stitch square and using some thin washi tape to make a grid that I then inked up using some distress oxide ink in a rainbow order. After removing the wash, I stamped a sentiment in the center square and added the colored images using foam tape. As always I finished off the card using some jewels and adding the card front to a 5 x 5 Kraft card base.

I hope these cards inspire you to create something winter themed! Please make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog for more inspiration and don’t forget to tag #NewtonsNook or #NewtonsNookDesign on Instagram to share what you created!

Happy crafting!

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 Crafting!

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!

Pretty Pink Posh

Pumpkin BABY Slimline | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Tuesday! This weekend I got to meet my friend’s October baby, and since my friend loves all things pumpkin, I decided to make her a pumpkin baby card using a mix of new and old Pretty Pink Posh products. This card is part of my recent attempt to make “baby” cards with non baby stamps!

This was definitely one of my more “detailed” cards, so of course I made it over multiple days! I started by stamping two of the largest images from the Fall Corners Stamp Set onto Kraft paper using brown copic friendly ink. I colored in the images using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Next I created the background for the card, starting with die cutting a stitched slimline panel from white cardstock. I arranged all the smaller images from the Baby Stamp Set on to an acrylic block and created and white heat embossed background on to the stitched panel. Once it cooled, I ink blended it using distress oxides in Abandoned Coral, Spiced Marmalade, and Squeezed Lemon. After inking I buffed the panel to make sure the white pops through!

For the sentiment I die cut the word “BABY” using the Baby Coordinating Dies, from matte gold paper, and the “welcome” from the Welcome Little One Script Die using golden glitter card stock. I added the “baby” to the center of the card and layered the “welcome” on it. I finished off my added the colored pumpkin images using foam tape and added some jewels from the Harvest Jewel Mix.

Copic Combo : E13, 15, 37; YR04, 07, Y17; YR16, 18, Y15; G21, 24, 28; G94, 99; YG03, 63
