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! 

Happy Crafting!

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!

Rainbow Shaped Cards | Paper Crafters Against Racism Instagram Hop

Happy Saturday y’all! Popping in quickly to share the details of cards that I just shared on Instagram.

To create these card I die cut the rainbow using the Rainbow Card Die from Ellen Hutson from heavy weight cardstock, making sure to cut the base twice. Then I ink blended the rainbow strips using Distress Oxide Inks (in festive berries, scattered straw, cracked pistachio, tumbled glass, shaded lilac). After assembling the rainbow, I scored a 1/4 inch of the second card base and used double sided tape to adhere it to the back of the rainbow. Lastly I added a sentiment from Simple Sayings: Kind Stamp Set, and sentiment die cut ‘Welcome Little One‘ and ‘Happy Birthday‘.

Happy Crafting!
