So Happy Together Interactive Spinner/Shaker Friendship Card ft. Honey Bee Stamps


Hello Crafty Friends, 

I am beyond excited to share with you my very first project for Honey Bee Stamps, I'm calling this my So Happy Together Interactive Spinner/Shaker Friendship Card.... What a mouthful! The perfect card to send a friend you are really missing 😁

Hard to see but this little beauty is not only a shaker, but it has an arm beneath the hive that spins all around to give it the illusion that the little bees are flying around it.

As you can see in the image below the bees are in a different position now.

The hive turned shaker was created by stacking 7 of these hexagon bunches together and adding an acetate layer before adhering the top die cut. I then filled each hexagon with a few Sunny Day Sequins and added a back layer to hold them all in place. The little bees are glued onto the end of an acetate arm that has a hole in the center which allows for the arm to spin around a disk.

To finish off the inside of the card I thought it would be cute add the missing you sentiment to make it appear like the little be was lonely without her friend from the front of the card.

Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card


Today was a sad day for me...
I said my goodbye to a long time friend, colleague and mentor. I had worked with Jan for almost 20 years. She was super smart, so funny and sarcastic, beautiful, and one the best Nurses I've ever worked with. She was for a very long time our Charge Nurse and go to person for all our questions and always someone I looked up to and admired.  When I first started at the hospital one day at lunch, I remember a comment Jan made to me. She said that I looked like I was just a kid and that I could be her daughter, (she probably would of had to have me at 16, lol) but from that point on she became my work mom. Today was her celebration of life and though she left us too soon, she had a beautiful one. I will miss her terribly as we all will at work 😪 

So on to today's card...
As sad as the situation is, I always like to look for the beauty in things, and as I made this card I thought of Jan. I think Jan would of loved this card and hopefully her family will too.

Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card

The card was actually quite simple to put together. I began by stamping out the background with versamark ink and then added some Raven embossing powder and heat set it, then die cut my panel.
Next, I cut out the prayers word die 4 times. To the top prayer die I stamped the coordinating stamp on top again using versamark ink and this time used gold embossing powder and heat set it. I then stacked and glued 3 of the word dies together. Finally I cut out the velum layer, stamped and heat set the images and then glued the prayers in place. Right behind where I had glued the prayers stacked dies, I then glued the last die cut behind the vellum. This created a larger surface area to adhere the vellum layer to the front panel and it also lifted the vellum off the card ever so slightly.

Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card

To the inside, I just finished the card with this simple sentiment.


Hope this card Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card has inspired you today.
Goodbye Jan 💔

There's Snow-Buddy Quite Like You Birthday Card ft Ink On 3's Snow Buddies


Hello my friends!

Back again with you today with one more card from Ink On 3's newest Stamp Set Snow Buddies. This time featuring the adorable penguins. 🐧🐧🐧

I had so much fun creating this card, even though it looks like it was a ton of work it actually wasn't that difficult 😉

There's Snow-Buddy Quite Like You Birthday Card - Ink On 3 Stamps

Once I had cut out masks the rest was simple.
I cut 2 masks for each penguin, 2 large ones and 2 small ones. Then once those were cut out I started stamping and masking all around the pink penguin. Once the cluster of penguins was stamped I did some simple coloring with Zig brushes and fussy cut the entire grouped image out. Next, I glued them down to a night sky background I had created using Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors, to which I had already added the sentiment to the bottom corner. I then glued on the mitts and the hat to the pink penguin and added some liquid applique to the pompom. I also added some glossy accents to each of the little penguins eyes and beaks for some added dimension.

I finished the inside of the card with this cute birthday banner and added my sentiment. If you are curious about any supplies I used check out all the links below following the post.
