Heffy Doodle and Honey Bee Stamps Collaboration Blog Hop

Happy Saturday! Welcome to the Heffy Doodle and Honey Bee Stamps Collaboration Blog Hop! Make sure to scroll to the end to see all the other participants! For my card, I decided to step out of my comfort zone with some space themed stamps! I used some slimline dies from Honeybee stamps and paired it with space stamps from Heffy Doodle.

I started by die cutting a slimline base using the Slimline Sentiments: Stitched | Honey Cuts from black cardstock. I also die cut a cloud border using the Horizon Slimline Borders | Honey Cuts from the same black cardstock. I then inked it up using distress oxide ink (in mermaid lagoon, fossilized amber, dusty concord and black soot) to create the galaxy background. I finished off the backgrounds with some water splatters, along with some silver watercolor.

I stamped and colored all the images from Spaced Out Clear Stamps and colored them with copic markers, and die cut them using the coordinating dies. I layered the cloud border onto the slimline card base using foam tape for added dimension, and then scattered all the colored images around to create the scene. I adhered them with both liquid and foam tape to add more some dimension.

Monochormatic #Manuary Birthday Card | Not 2 Shabby Stamps

Happy Friday! Yay weekend! My plans include hot drinks, crafting and slow cooker chili! Maybe some cookies, we’ll see!

And speaking of cookies, it’s all over my card today! I used the chocolate chip cookie image from Not 2 Shabby Stamp’s Sprinkled with Love stamp set, copy pasted it multiple times to create a background. After printing it, I die cut it using a scalloped rectangle and added a die cut sentiment cut from brown glitter cardstock, and added a few jewels.

Pretty Pink Posh

Dads and Grads Theme Week (with Pretty Pink Posh) : Day 1

Finally posting day one of this theme week super late as it got dark last night by the time I finished making these so had to wait till morning to take pictures. Today through Saturday, I’ll be posting Father’s day and Graduation cards, super quick and easy designs, so you can recreate them in time for the weekend! But if you don’t need those type of cards, you can also change out the sentiments for a different event, as you’ll see I did with some of the cards in the coming posts! I have a hard time making masculine cards, so challenged myself with this theme week.


For these cards, you can use any type of ink that you can blend with. I used distress oxides but I have used Fresh Inks from Impress Cards and Crafts and Gina K die inks for blending too. For today’s card a used the “double blending” or “tone on tone” blending technique, basically I used one ink per card to create a dual tone colored background.

Using a make up brush and Strathmore Bristol smooth card stock (cut to an A2 size), I very lightly blended the entire background. For the second layer, I attached the stencil with some washi tape and very heavily blended the same color ink over the stencil. And your background is done!

For the sentiments, I just added a Happy Father’s Day and Congrats script die. I cut the top layer from glitter card stock and stacked then with plain cardstock using a quickie glue pen for added dimension. I backed the diecuts with some vellum to make it pop! I used ginak connect glue behind the diecuts to adhere the vellum to the inked background.

I used the following distress oxide colors : wilted voilet, candied apple, twisted citron and broken china.
