DIY Wreath Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Who else loves a great wreath stamp! I am obsessed with them, and pretty much have one for every season! But then Kerry from Ink Hill Revival got me thinking about stretching my supplies and I was like… umm why not use the tiny flowers from stamp sets, and make my own wreath! So after a little coloring and A LOT of die cutting, here’s what I ended up creating!

To create this card, I started by stamping the poinsettias and holly leaves from Honey Bee Stamps’ Riding By…Holiday Style stamp set with copic friendly ink and coloring them using copic markers. Next I stamped the detailed leaves with two shades of green ink and die cut ALL the images!

Copic Combos : R35, 37, 39; R59. 89; G21, 24, 28, 29; G94, 99; Y15

To assemble the card, I started with a grey card base and added a maroon sheet from the Vintage Holiday paper pad, which I trimmed down to be a little smaller than than an A2 size, and die cut it using the Pierced Fancy Flakes Cover Plate. I cut a circle using the Sweet Stacks : Circle die from a sheet of pattern paper from the same pad and embossed a sentiment from the Bitty Buzzwords : Holidays stamp set.

I finished off the card by adhering the die cut florals and leaves using liquid adhesive along with foam tape to add some dimension to create the “wreath” around the sentiment. And of course I added some jewels to the finished card.

Vintage Holidays Sneak Peak Day 4 | Honey Bee Stamps

Welcome back for the last day of sneak peaks for Honey Bee StampsVintage Holiday release going live tonight! Today I’m sharing a card using the new Tag, You’re It: Celebrations stamp set along with it coordinating dies and the Tag Builder Die Set.

The sentiment “welcome little one” from the Tag, You’re It: Celebrations stamp set caught my eye as I recently had a conversation with a friend about making baby cards with non baby stamps! So I create a little snow family using the Snow Family Like Ours Stamp Set and added the sentiment for a baby card!

To create this card, I started by stamping, coloring (with copics) and die cutting the snow family, next I cut down a piece of pattern paper using the Sweet Stacks: Rectangles die cut from the Vintage Holiday paper pad to create the background for the card.

Next, I die cut the largest tag from the Tag Builder Die Set twice, once from pattern paper (gingham galore paper pad) and once from white card stock. I stamped the snowflakes from the Snow Family Like Ours Stamp Set onto the white tag, using watermark ink along with silver embossing powder, and lightly inked it up with blue ink. I attached the two tags with some twine to create a layered look, add the snow family and sentiment to finish off the card!

Vintage Holidays Sneak Peak Day 2 | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Tuesday! Welcome back to my little space on the internet! Sharing another sneak peak at the Vintage Holiday release coming this Thursday! Today I’m sharing a look at the new Falling Snow Background stamp,
Hug In A Mug Stamps & Dies, and Mugs & Kisses Dies, along with the Vintage Holiday Paper Pad.

To create this card, I started by embossing the Falling Snow Background stamp with silver embossing powder onto an A2 piece of white card stock, and lightly inked it up with some light blue ink. Next, I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Hug In A Mug Stamp Set on black card stock and die cutting with the coordinating dies.

Can you believe that this card has no coloring! Yup, only die cutting the mugs and add on from the Mugs & Kisses Dies. I die cut the mugs from a sheet of pattern paper from the Vintage Holiday Paper Pad and the rest of the pieces from white glitter card stock.

I added all the pieces to the ink background using foam tape and liquid adhesive to add some dimension. And as always I finished of the card with some jewels!
