It’s the holidays! | Honey Bee Stamps

Happy Hump Day! Not sure if it’s the fact that my weekend starts earlier this week or the fact that I’m still playing catch up from the weekend, but this week is flying by! Can you believe it’s 2022 in like 23 days 🤯 Anyways let’s get back to card making, are y’all done with holiday cards?? If not here’s one that can be mass produced! 

Ink blending is one of my favorite ways to add color quickly for cards, you can see here, here, and many more ideas here.

To create this card, I started by inking up an A2 piece of Bristol Smooth card stock with distress oxide inks in chipped sapphire, abandoned coral, dried marigold, crushed olive and salvage patina. Next I die cut both the Pierced Fancy Flakes Cover Plate and the Fancy Flakes Cover Plate, layered from the same sheet of A2 white card stock.

To finish off the card I die the words “merry Christmas” from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holidays Dies from golden card stock, and used a few left over colored die cuts from the Riding By…Holiday Style stamp set, and of course I added some jewels!

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!

Merry Penguin Pals | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy last day of November! I know, right? I know that this year has been crazy busy, but November literally passed by in a blink! I managed to color these cute penguins a while back, and finally got a chance to create the card! I actually recreated my own card from earlier in the year! Check it out here.

To create this card, I started by stamping all the penguins from the Penguin Pals stamp set along with all the “accessories”. I colored them using copic markers. The color combos I used are shared at the end of the post. And then die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Next I die cut a stitched square using the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Squares from white card stock, and dry embossed it using the Snowflakes Stencil and I die cut all three of the frames from the Stitched Photo Frames die set.

With a little masking, I stamped the sentiment “merry wishes” on to the two larger frames. I adhered the frames and colored die cuts using a mix of foam tape and liquid adhesive to be able to layer the images and add some dimension. I finished off the card with Winter Wonders Clay Confetti and added it to a light blue card base.

Poisettia CAS card | Newton’s Nook

Happy Tuesday y’all! I hope that you’re week is off to a great start, if not, at least it ends tomorrow! I’m super excited about the weekend, first time not cooking/hosting, so looking forward to reading, crafting and catching up of watching TV/movies! I may pack a puzzle or two also!

If you are crafting this weekend, here’s some holiday card inspiration for you using my favorite holiday stamp, poinsettias!

To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring one of the images from the Poinsettia Blooms Stamp Set with copic markers. I don’t have the Poinsettia Blooms Die Set, so I fussy cut the images.

Next I diecut a circle using the Circle Frames Die Set and embossed the ‘season greetings’ sentiment onto it using gold embossing powder. I adhered the circle to an A2 size card front dry embossed using the Holiday Foliage Stencil.

I finished off the card by adhering the colored images using foam tape to frame the sentiment and added some jewels.

I hope these cards inspire you to create something for the holidays! Please make sure to stop by the Newton’s Nook Designs Blog for more inspiration and don’t forget to tag #NewtonsNook or #NewtonsNookDesign on Instagram to share what you created!

Happy crafting!

Newton’s Nook Designs November Release – DAY 3 – Snow Angel Newton & Snow Angel Puppy + Coordinating Dies, Roll with It 

Happy Wednesday! It’s the last day of reveals over at Newton’s Nook Designs and I’m so excited for all the inspiration I got to share with you! Today’s products are all about SNOW! Today we are showcasing the Snow Angel Newton & Snow Angel Puppy + Coordinating Dies, and Roll with It mini stamp set! Here’s how I was inspired!

All three of today’s cards are made using some fun techniques that I finally tried and I am so happy that I did!

For my first card, I used the Roll with It stamp set to create a simpler card that can easily be mass produced. To create the card I started by ink blending a sheet of blue cardstock to create an ombre look, and layered it with deco foil paste over the Snowfall Stencil and let it dry overnight. After it dried, I ran it through my laminator layered with a sheet of flock.

While the deco foil paste dried, I stamped the Roll with It stamp on to a die cut I cut using the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set, and quickly colored it using copic markers. Once the background was ready, I added the sentiment along with trimmed banners cut using the Banner Trio Die Set to create a faux belly band look.

For my second card, I used a wobbler for the first time! To create this card, I started by stenciling the Petite Snow Stencil on to a sheet of pattern paper from the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad with texture paste. While it dried, I stamped and colored the puppy image from the Snow Angel Puppy stamp set, and die cut it using the coordinating die. I also stamped and embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set onto a banner die cut using the Banner Trio Die Set.

Once the card background dried, I added the puppy using a wobbler and the sentiment using some foam tape to finish off the card.

For my last card, I created my first spinner card! The image from the Snow Angel Newton is almost symmetrical so it worked out well for a spinner card!

To create this card I started by stamping and coloring the image of Newton from the Snow Angel Newton stamp set twice and die cut them using the coordinating die. I glued the two images together with some fishing wire between them. Next I created the card base. I die cut a circle from a piece of A2 sized blue card stock big enough to fit the colored image using a die from the Circle Frames Die Set and embossed the piece with the Snowfall Stencil to add some dimension. I die cut the same circle from a top folding card base, and added the textured card stock with the fish wire sandwiched between the two. I finished off the card by stamping the sentiment hidden behind the colored spinning image.

Holiday Foliage | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Friday y’all! The skies are finally clearing up and I have a HUGE todo list to get through before planning for tomorrow’s double date IN! As life slowly returns to normal, I hope that I remain appreciative of the little things and don’t take them for granted! Including my little space on the internet! I love being able to share my cards (and sometimes random adventures) with all of you!

On to today’s card! I created another card using the Poinsettia Corners Stamp Set from Pretty Pink Posh. You can see the first card I created here. The biggest change I made was making it a holiday card, and used a slightly different combination of copic markers.

Copic Combo : R32, 35, 37, 39; G21, 24, 28; YG 17, 67; G94, 99

To create this card, I started by stamping the larger of the bouquets twice with copic friendly ink on to white card stock. I colored them using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies.

To assemble the card, I started by embossing the Christmas Background Stencil. I added the poinsettia corners on the two corners of the card base. Next I stacked the “merry” and “Christmas” from the Bitty Buzzwords: Holidays die cuts. I die cut them from black card stock 3 times and once from black glitter card stock. And as always I added some jewels to finish off the card, this time using Holiday Jewels Mix.

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!

Poinsettia Thank You | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Tuesday y’all! I hope that you are all having am amazing start to the week! I got my Pretty Pink Posh Winter Release order last week, and of course I had to get inky ASAP! I picked up the Poinsettia Corners Stamp Set along with the coordinating dies. I’m super excited to add it to my holiday themed stamps from Pretty Pink Posh!

To create this card, I started by stamping the 2 larger poinsettia bouquets on to white card stock using copic friendly black ink. I colored them using Copic Markers, die cut and then added some glitter glue in the flower centers along with accents using a white gel pen.

For the sentiment I die cut the Thank You Script Die from matte golden paper 3 times and stacked it. I finished off the card by adding the floral die cuts and the word sentiment to a pattern paper trimmed down to an A2 size and finished off with some Holiday Jewels Mix.

Newton’s Nook Designs October Release – Day 4 – Prehistoric Christmas & Christmas Pheasant + Coordinating Dies, Heartfelt Holidays

Happy Thursday! It’s the last day of reveal week over at Newton’s Nook Designs and its been so exciting to share a ton of inspiration with y’all this week! It might not be the holiday season yet, but it sure looks like it’s here in my craft room! Today we are showcasing the Prehistoric Christmas & Christmas Pheasant + Coordinating Dies, Heartfelt Holidays stamp sets! Here’s how I was inspired!

Reveal week if definitely ending with a bang as I have 3 cards to share with y’all today!

I created the first card using the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set, the latest addition to the Heartfelt collection, which happens to be one of my favorites collections from Newton’s Nook Designs!

To create this card, I started by stamping and coloring the image using copic markers. Then I die cut it with the largest scallop heart from the Heart Frame Die Set (the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set, along with ALL the Heartfelt stamps, work with the Heart Frame Die Set and the Banner Trio Die Set.)

To finish off the card, I added the die cut heart to an A2 piece of pattern paper from the NEW Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. I created the sentiment using the word “merry” from the Snow Globe Shaker Die Set cut from golden card stock and trimmed the “merry Christmas” from the Heartfelt Holidays stamp set. I felt like the word die cut was fading into the colored image, so I backed it with a smaller heart die cut from vellum. Lastly, I added some jewels!

For my second card, I started by stamping and coloring two of the dinosaurs from the Prehistoric Christmas stamp set, and die cutting them with the coordinating dies.

To create the scene, I started by die cutting two hills, using a sheet of pattern paper from the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. Next I inked up the card bases using the Snowfall Stencil with some light blue ink. layered the hills and dinosaurs onto the card front, stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set and finished off the card with some snow flake shaped sequins.

For my last card of the reveal, I made a CAS-ish card using the mini Christmas Pheasant stamp set. I started by coloring and die cutting the little pheasant. Next, I embossed a card front using the Holiday Foliage Stencil.

To finish of the card, I die cut multiple banners using the Frames & Flags Die Set and Banner Trio Die Set, from white card stock for the sentiment and the pattern paper pad, Meowy Christmas Paper Pad. I layered them on to the embossed card front, and added the Pheasant image!

Would you like to win the “Prehistoric Christmas” or the “Heartfelt Holidays” Stamp Set? We will choose ONE lucky winner for each stamp set!

Newton’s Nook Designs October Release – Day 3 – Christmas Cocktails & Dairy Christmas + Coordinating Dies

Happy Wednesday! 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 be the holiday season yet, but it sure looks like it’s here in my craft room! Today we are showcasing the Christmas Cocktails & Dairy Christmas along with their coordinating Dies! Here’s how I was inspired!

Both this sets challenged my creativity as they aren’t my “go to” images, not sure about the cocktails, but the animals and critters are slowly growing on me!

For my first card, I started by stamping and coloring the image from the Dairy Christmas stamp set and die cutting it with the coordinating die. Next I die cut a grass edge, along with a hill from a sheet of pattern paper from the Meowy Christmas Paper Pad.I also die cut a fence from white card and inked it up a bit using some brown ink. Lastly I die cut a banner from the Banner Trio Die Set and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on to in.

To assemble the card, I created a cloud background using blue card stock, the Petite Cloud Stencil and some texture paste. After it dried I added all the die cut elements along with the colored image using a combination of foam tape and liquid glue to add some dimension.

For my second card, I stamped, colored and die cut all the images from the Christmas Cocktails stamp set.

Next, I created the background for card, starting with stamping and embossing a sentiment in the center of an A2 card base. Then I inked up in a blue ombre and then using the Petite Snow Stencil along with white pigment ink. Once the ink dried, I shifted the stencil and added some glitter gel to the panel.

Once the glitter gel dried, I added all the cocktail images around the sentiment using foam tape.
