Floral Bouquet Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Monday crafty friends! I hope that you are having a great start to the week! If not, make sure to sneak in some crafty time! Popping in today to share a quick-ish card cause sometimes you just don’t have the time or energy for detailed coloring! That’s when the newest coordinating ink blending stencils come in handy! I avoided them for a while, now I am hooked!

To create this card I started by stamping all three of the images from Honey Bee StampsFloral Vase stamp set with VersaMark watermark ink and Lawn Fawn gold embossing powder to emboss.

Next I inked up the “vase” using Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink.

The I ink blended the leaves using Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn distress oxide inks.

Next up where the flowers using distress oxide ink in Shaded Lilac and Wilted Violet.

The last layer of ink blending was the center of the flowers that I added using  Scattered Straw distress oxide ink.

Next I die cut out the inked images along with the card and pick for the sentiment using the coordinating dies. I embossed a sentiment on to the card.

To finish off the card I added a little texture to the card front using dry embossing and the Crystal Kaleidoscope Background stencil and assembled the images using a combination of foam tape and liquid adhesive.

Thanks for following along today! I hope that this card inspires you to create something! 

Till the next time, take care!

Flying Butterflies | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday! I’m all for productive days, but oh man, they do tire me out! it’s past 9 and I am just getting to posting this! Sharing a fun interactive card today up on the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog using the tiniest stamps from multiple stamp sets, and fishing line, yes fishing line!

To create this card I started by card base with an oval window using the Oval Frames Die Set and the new Springtime Paper Pad. I sandwiched the fishing line between the pattern paper and the card front.

Next I stamped the little butterflies from the Newton’s Blooms Stamp SetGnome Garden Stamp SetDaffodils Stamp Set and Bitty Bunnies Stamp Set twice, and colored them using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies (Newton’s Blooms Die SetGnome Garden Die SetDaffodils Die SetBitty Bunnies Die Set). I used little pieces of double sided tape to adhere the butterflies to the fishing line.

Next I stamped and colored the kitty with a butterfly net from the Captivated Kittens Stamp Set and die cut it using the coordinating Captivated Kittens Die Set. I adhered it to the bottom right corner off the card.

Lastly I stamped a sentiment from the Captivated Kittens Stamp Set on a banner die cut from the A7 Frames & Banners Die Set

The Best Mom Oval stamp set is probably my new favorite! Can’t wait to use it again! I’m thinking a shaped card next time!

After coloring I restamped the image with watermark ink and embossed it with gold embossing powder and added a sentiment, and die cut is using one of the die from the Oval Frames Die Set.

Next I inked up the card base using the Petite Flowers Stencil and some purple and pink ink. I added the die cut piece and finished off with some jewels.

For my second card, I really wanted to use this rain sheet of pattern paper Springtime Paper Pad cause it was raining outside!

Butterfly Box Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Y’all I finally made a box card! I shared it on Instagram a while back, but I didn’t get a chance to share it here! I’ve been hoarding this box card die from Lawn Fawn for YEARS!! Finally unclipped the dies and made this card along with some Pretty Pink Posh products.

Making a box card wasn’t too difficult, but it takes a little planning as there are multiple components. I’m going to break it down into steps, in hopes to keep it clear!

  1. Inked up two 6 x 6 sheets of white card stock on both sides. I used the Butterfly Background Stencil along with distress oxides in Picked RaspberryFestive BerriesRipe PersimmonSqueezed LemonadeTwisted CitronSalty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. Then I die cut it using the Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up.
  2. Stamped, colored (with copics) and die cut the smaller butterfly from Beautiful Butterflies stamp set.
  3. Stamped, colored and fussy cut the floral border from the Spring Borders stamp set.
  4. To assemble the box, I started by assembling the box using double sided tape. Next I added the floral border, three times. Lastly I used thin strips of acetate to adhere the butterflies.
  5. Lastly, I added a sentiment. 

I hope this encourages you to create something out of your comfort zone!

Happy Crafting!

Newton’s Nook Designs April Release – Day 1 – Gnome Garden and Bleeding Heart + coordinating Dies, Petite Clouds 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! Today we are showcasing the Gnome Garden and Bleeding Heart stamp sets and coordinating dies & Petite Cloud Stencil. Here’s how I was inspired!

I’ve recently been trying to make more CAS cards and ’embrace the white space’.

For my first card, I used the Gnome holding the flower image from the Gnome Garden stamp set, colored (with copics) and die cut using the coordinating die. I masked, stamped and embossed part of the Blooming Botanicals stamp set. I inn blended one the embossing before removing the masking, to achieve the straight edges.

Lastly I added a sentiment from the same Gnome Garden stamp set, along with some jewels to match the ink blending.

Using the Bleeding Heart stamp set, I made a pair of ‘mini cards’. I die cut the scalloped rectangle from the Slimline Frame & Portholes Die Set and folded it in half to make the card base.

I stamped and colored (with copics) the large image from the Bleeding Heart stamp set, and die cut it using the coordinating die. I adhered it to my card base using liquid glue and stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set. Lastly I added some matching jewels.

Would you like to win the “Gnome Garden” or the “Bleeding Heart” Stamp Set? We will choose ONE lucky winner for each stamp set!
