Happy Friday Friends!

Welcome to the Tonic Studios January 2021 Backgrounds & Borders Stamp Club Blog Hop. If you have arrived from my friend Erica's Blog you are on the right track. I will link the complete hop list and giveaway details near the end of this post, so stay tuned!


For the Hop, I have created three cards featuring the new Backgrounds & Borders Stamp and Die Bundle US|UK. Take a look at these sets.




Both these sets come in high-quality plastic sleeves, that are compatible to work with A5 ring binders. They come in an Orange US|UK or Blue binder US|UK.

CARD DETAILS

I kept all 3 cards fairly simple, which was easy to do with the size of these fonts and designs. 

For this first friendship card, I began by stamping the tribal herringbone pattern stamp from the Backgrounds & Borders Stamp Set US|UK vertically down the left side of a piece of black cardstock cut to A2 size. I used white pigment ink and then heat embossed it with white EP.

To add some color I used chalk markers and metallic gel pens to color in some of the spaces of the pattern.

I then lined up the dies from the Backgrounds & Borders Stamp Die Set and die cut all three words from the panel. At this point, I glued the panel to the card base. This then made it easy to see the negative spaces and line up all the letters. For each word, I then stacked 3 die-cut layers together and glued each letter back into the corresponding place. I used the gold cardstock from the Gold Hearted Paper Pad US|UK.

This next card turned out to be my favorite and it was super simple to make. To add the embossing detail to the center of the hexagons I lined up and taped the circle embossing plates to the linked hexagon die openings and then ran it through the die-cut machine. I repeated this using 3 types of cardstocks, three times. Gold cardstock comes from the Gold Hearted Pad US|UK and the silver glitter comes from the Silver Service Pad US|UK.

I then started by gluing the gold hexagon strip along the bottom edge, followed by the glitter one and then the black one. Even though these all nest together, I liked the look of the white peeking through the background. The space in between was all eyeballed. As you can see I then finished off the top by slicing the top edge off of the hexagon strip. With the piece that was cut off, I then used it to finish off the bottom and cut off any excess.

For this sentiment, I used the Hey You stamp from the stamp set that was stamped and heat set in white on black cardstock and then used the circle die to cut it out. I then just popped it up with foam tape and added it to one of the black hexagons.

This last card was also fun to make, I love how these stamps and dies work together so effortlessly. 

For this card, I die cut the top and the bottom using the same arrow die-cut design. I then cut the center area using the irregular dot design die.

Moving along, I stamped the in-between spaces using multiple stamps to create stamped borders. Here again, I used metallic gel pens to add some color to the card. 

I then glued silver glitter and gold cardstock strips in behind the openings and then glued the panel to the card base.

Next, I die cut, stacked, and glued together the letters using the MISS die and glued them onto the center-right of the card panel. To finish off the greeting I stamped the YOUR FACE from the stamp set onto a black strip of paper that I trimmed and then popped up just below it.

Birthday Fortune Cookies Card | Honey Bee Stamps


Happy Monday crafty Friends. 

I have a super cute interactive Birthday card to share with you today featuring the new Fortune Cookie collection from Honey Bee Stamps

CARD DETAILS

To start, I die cut all the pieces for the Fortune Cookies using the FORTUNATE COOKIE SLIDER dies and scrap pieces of different shades of brown cardstock. I then pieced them together.


The next thing I did was choose the piece of cardstock for the background. I really liked this pink xoxo pattern that comes from the LOVE LETTER PAPER PAD. The piece was then trimmed to an A2 size panel.

Rather than using the slider die, I chose to create a small slit in the center of the paper for my fortune message to slip into. To do this I stamped the "So Lucky to know you" fortune on one of the banners from the FORTUNATE TO HAVE YOU set by creating a partial die cut of the banner so that I could extend the length of it. I then hand cut the remainder of the banner, slid the banner through the slit, and then glued one end onto one-half of the fortune cookie. On the backside of the pattern paper, I added a little scrap piece of paper to the end of the banner so that when pulled out the banner wouldn't slide out completely. I then glued the panel to the card base avoiding any glue around the area the banner would be sliding through. I did not use foam tape as it moved ok without the added space.


I then just covered up the slit area with the other half of the Fortune Cookie.

The other two fortune cookies also have an interactive banner that slides out as well. On the bottom left one, the fortune comes out completely but slides back into place easily and the bottom right one has the built-in stopper banner. They are all fun to pull and play with.

For the sentiment, I used the BEE BOLD ALPHABET CUTS to spell out PICK and then added the "a fortune" form the FORTUNATE TO HAVE YOU that was stamped on black cardstock and heat embossed in white and then die cut using the coordinating FORTUNATE TO HAVE YOU DIES. To each letter, I then added a light layer of glue to the top half and dipped it in glitter.


To finish off the inside of this birthday card, I stamped out the birthday fortune from the FORTUNATE TO HAVE YOU set and added a little die-cut heart from the FORTUNATE TO HAVE YOU DIES set.


Here is a fun little clip of the card in action.


I hope you find a happy fortune today and hope this Birthday Fortune Cookies Card inspired you. Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting!
