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!

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.

Halloween Inspiration Week – Day 4 | Newton’s Nook Designs

This week Newton’s Nook Designs is getting ready for Halloween with a fun Inspiration week! All week the NND Design Team will be sharing inspiration using some of their favorite Halloween products to get you in the mood for tricks and treats! Check out what I created today and don’t forget to check the NND Blog each day this week for more fun inspiration!

For my card, I decided to use the Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set, cause who can resist this cute images!

I started by stamping the two images from the Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set on to heavy weight card stock using copic friendly ink and colored them in using copic markers, and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Copic Combo : N0, C1, 3, 5, 7; E15, 37; YR00; Y15, 17; V15, 17; B00, 02; YG06, 23

Next I created the inked background using distress oxide ink (chipped sapphire, seedless preserves, ripe persimmon, and wild honey). Then I splattered it with water, black and white paint for some added depth.

Copic Combo : 0; N0; C5, 7; YR04, 14, 15; Y15, 17; YG06, 23; BV04, 08; E57, 59

Once I went to assemble the card, I found that the colored images were getting lost on the inked background, so I die cut stitched squares using the Slimline Frames and Windows Die Set and used them as a background instead. I almost embossed a sentiment from the same Trick or Treat Kittens stamp set on to the third square. I added the squares to the inked background and finished off the card with some jewels to match the ink colors.

Pretty Pink Posh

Rainbow Monsters | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Saturday! I usually avoid blogging/social media on weekends, but I really wanted to share this card I made with Pretty Pink Posh’s Halloween release before the Fall release comes out tomorrow! I love ALL the products in the new release and honestly can’t help but want them ALL!

As you probably know, I’m not big on Halloween, but these monsters caught my eye as I can use them for fun birthday cards for little boys (and girls)!

To create this card, I started by stamping ALL the image from the Monster Hugs stamp set and colored them in using copic markers. Color combos listed below. Next I cut them out using the coordinating dies.

I couldn’t decide which monster images NOT to use, so I decided to make a square card using them ALL! I started by die cutting the largest stitched square from Lawn Fawn’s Large Stitched Squares Die Set. I attached the die cut square to the Grid Stencil and inked it up to create a diagonal rainbow using distress oxide inks. I used the following colors : Spun Sugar, Abandoned Coral, Dried Marigold, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, and Shaded Lilac.

Once the ink dried, I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the cardbase, and added the colored monsters in the ‘squares’ with foam tape. Lastly I added the card front to a Kraft notecard.

Copic Combos : N0; BG 10, 11, 13; YG 00, 01, 03; RV 21, 23, 25; Y02, 11; YR 14, 16, Y35

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!

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Day 3 – Fall Friends + Coordinating Dies and Heartfelt Gourds

Welcome back for day 3 of reveal week 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 Fall Friends stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the Heartfelt Gourds stamp set (that works with the Heart Frames & Banner Trio Dies). Here’s how I was inspired!

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, mostly because I love all things pumpkin, except PSL, can’t stand that one LOL. So you can only imagine my excitement when I saw the Heartfelt Gourds stamp set!

Best things about fall crafting is pumpkins AND Kraft paper!! So of course I had to combine them both on to my first card using the Heartfelt Gourds stamp set! To create this card I started by stamping the Heartfelt Gourds image with brown ink on to craft paper using a stamp positioner. After coloring it, I stamped it again with watermark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder, and die cut it using the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frames Die Set.

I adhered it on to an A2 card front cut from pattern paper, and die cut the word “fall” from the Fall Friends coordinating die set, from the same pattern paper, along with a mini heart. I embossed the “Fall is calling” sentiment from the Heartfelt Gourds stamp set, and cut off the “fall” and trimmed it down to a strip, and added it to the card using some foam tape.

For my second card, I used the Fall Friends stamp set to create a simple scene card. Since the image from the stamp is so detailed, it’s basically as scene! I stamped it with brown ink on to some Kraft paper and colored it using alcohol markers. I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the set on to banner die cut from the Banner Trio Die Set.

I finished off the card, by creating a inked background similar to a fall sun set, and added clouds using the Petite Clouds stencil and some texture paste. Once the paste dried I added the colored image along with the sentiment banner, and a few jewels.

Newton’s Nook Designs August Release – Day 1 – Brooms & Boos + coordinating Dies and Candy Corn Stencil

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 feel like fall outside, but it sure looks like it’s here in my craft room! Today we are showcasing the Brooms & Boos stamp set and coordinating dies & Candy Corn Stencil. Here’s how I was inspired!

This is my first time creating a Halloween card, I didn’t really know where I was going when I started making this card, but I pretty pleased with the result! I really hope that you like and are inspired by it too!

To create this card, I started by coloring two of the witches from the Brooms & Boos stamp set, using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies. Next I created the background using the Bokeh Stencil Set along with a yellow, green and purple dye inks on the first layer and white pigment ink on the second layer.

I felt the witches were getting lost in the background, so I die cut little squares using the scallop square from the Slimline Frames & Window Die Set from some black cardstock that I used to create a galaxy background.

I adhered the squares to the bokeh background, embossed a sentiment in gold onto one of them, and added the witch die cuts to the other two. Lastly, I added some jewels to the card to finish it off.

Would you like to win the “Brooms & Boos”  Stamp Set? This stamp set will be given away to ONE lucky winner!

Easy Coloring Summer Wreath Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Here on a Sunday? Oops! I had started taking weekends off, but then #thedailymarker30day challenge started, so I kinda got hooked, not a good thing though! I plan on going back to my weekends off on come September!

Today’s card is a “easier” version of my own summer wreath card that I posted a few days ago! I know that not every has the time (or patience!) to create a detailed coloring card, so I wanted to use the same products for a simple and less time consuming card.

To create this card, I started by add Deco Transfer Gel Duo over the squiggles stencils, and let it dry till it was tacky. Then I ran it thought my mini minc machine layered with a sheet of Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheet (in Sky Blue). I peeled it off and saved the negative too as it’ll make for another fun background!

Next I stamped and embossed (in white) the wreath image from the Summer Wreath stamp set, and inked it up with distress oxide inks. I buffed it when I was done ink blending to let the white embossing pop through the ink. I finished off the card with the script Happy Birthday die cut, cut twice from light blue card stock and stacked, along with a sprinkling off some Caribbean Blue sequins.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that you were inspired to create something! Make sure to tag me @everydayengineered and @prettypinkposh on Instagram and join the Facebook group so that we can see what you have created!

Card Sketch | Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 106

Happy Saturday! I have a million things to catch up from after 2 weeks of solo parenting, and I’m baking for events this weekend! Like woah, do I even remember how to bake?!? But while I was waiting on the oven, I decided to make a card instead of cleaning up! I didn’t have much time to think it out, so decided to use the current Lawn Fawnatics Sketch!

After using my Finstatic Friends stamp set multiple times, I decided to get the dies! So of course I decided to use the stamp set again! It’s one of my first ever stamp sets, and it’s been fun to use it again!

To create this card, I started by stamping all the fish images from the Finstatic Friends stamp set and coloring them with Copic Markers (listed below) to create a rainbow. Then I die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Next I created the background using a waves stencil and distress oxide ink in Salvage Patina, adhering it to the card front at an angle and making off parts of the stencil for a diagonal look.

To finish off the card, I stamped a sentiment from the same Finstatic Friends stamp set with black ink on to the stenciled area, and adhered the colored fish images using foam tape, and added some jewels, cause all cards need a little bling!

Copic Combo : R05-14, YR14-16, Y13-15, G03-21, B32-34, V12-15

Thanks for stopping by today, hope y’all have a great weekend! 

Happy Crafting!
