Happy BEEday Release Blog Hop | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello crafty friends! Today is Honey Bee Stamps first day of a two day blog hop celebrating their Happy BEEday Release. This release is particularly exciting because Honey Bee Stamps is also celebrating their 4th birthday! So make sure to head over to their blog to find out more about the whole celebration!

I created a card featuring the Chicken Coop die set, the Spring Chicks stamps and dies, and the Eggcelent Sentiments stamps and dies.

I stamped a bunch of the images from the Spring Chicks stamp set onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. I then colored those in with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

Next I took the Chicken Coop die set and cut the large section of the coop out of dark blue cardstock. I cut the scalloped roof die from some dark gray cardstock and the hay pile from some yellow cardstock. I popped up the larger piece onto a piece of dark gray cardstock and glued the rood and hay on with liquid glue.

I arranged the little chicks that I colored in inside the coop and glued them down. I also added one chick in the middle of the doorway and placed the cracked egg shell over his head. I stamped a sentiment from the Eggcelent Sentiments set on white cardstock with black ink. I used the coordinating die set to cut that sentiment out and I popped it up on the top of the chicken coop.

To finish up the card I created a 5 x 5 card base and then popped up a 4.25 x 4.25 piece of light gray cardstock on top of that. I then glued the entire chicken coop scene onto that. Finally, I used Wink of Stella to add some glitter to the egg shell and the sentiment.

My Husband Makes Me a Birthday Card!

Today my husband took over and made me a birthday card!

First he took a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and added strips of washi tape across it. He then blended each section with a different color of Distress Oxide ink. He used the colors Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Lucky Clover, Blueprint Sketch, and Wilted Violet. He then laid out a bunch of the sentiments from the Tiny Words stamp set from Simon Says Stamp along the white stripes created by the washi tape and stamped them with the Misti Tool using a gray ink.

Next he picked out the numbers 3 and 1 from the Birthday Numbers stamp set from Simon Says Stamp and also the happy birthday sentiment from the Greetings Galore stamp set from My Favorite Things. He embossed them with white embossing powder on Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock.

He stamped the balloons from the Birthday Numbers stamp set onto some Neenah Solar white cardstock with Gina K Designs Jet Black Amalgam ink. He colored those in with Copic markers. He used the Scan N Cut 2 in order to cut out all of the stamped images.

To put the card together he first glued the background panel to an A2 size card base. He used liquid glue to adhere the balloons and foam tape to pop up the numbers and the sentiment. To finish up he went over the balloons with Glossy Accents.

Blossoming Cherry Tree Shaker Card | Simon Says Stamp

Today I am using one of the new stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp’s Fresh Bloom release!

1.jpg

First I stamped the tree from the Blossoming stamp set onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Gina K Amalgam ink. I then colored in the image with Copics and fussy cut it out with scissors.

2.jpg

I created a background panel by blending some Distress Oxide inks onto some Bristol Smooth paper. I blended the colors Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick. I then used my fuse tool to turn the background into a shaker pocket. I used large clear glitter and clear micro pearls from my shaker bits.

4.JPG

I adhered the shaker pocket onto a card base and then glued the tree onto the pocket. For my sentiment I embossed one of the stamps with white embossing powder onto Simon Says Stamp Slate cardstock. I popped the sentiment strip onto the card with foam tape.

3.JPG

For the finishing touched on the card I first randomly added dabs of Glossy Accents to the flowers on the tree and sprinkle Unicorn Dust glitter onto them. I then used a white gel pen to add highlights and details to the tree. Finally I went over the sentiment with Wink of Stella glitter.

Creating A Floral Thank You Card | Spellbinders

Today I created a card using some products from Spellbinders!

1.jpg

I created my background using the solid leaf images from the Botanical Feather from Spellbinders set and Midnight Green cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped the images with Versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I popped up the background panel onto a base that was the same color.

2.jpg

I stamped the floral image from the set four times and colored them in with Copic markers. I cut the flowers out using my Scan N Cut.

4.JPG

I stamped a sentiment from the Floral Love stamp set from Spellbinders onto a die cut circle with Versamark ink and embossed with gold embossing powder. I mounted that circle to a vellum circle and popped it up on my card. I then arranged the flowers around the circle and glued them with Gina K Connect Glue.

3.JPG

I stamped another sentiment from the Tiny Words stamp set from Simon Says Stamp onto some black cardstock and embossed it in white. I cut that to a small strip and glued it to my card. For the finishing touched I added some sequins, some Wink of Stella, and some dashed lines with a gold marker.
