Hello Friends, and Happy Friday! 

It is time for another Tonic Stamp Club Release Blog Hop and this time is all about the cutest Snowmies!!! Perfect for the upcoming winter and Holiday Season!

If you have already joined the hop you should have arrived from Iliana's Blog.  I will link the complete hop list and giveaway details near the end of this post. I have 3 projects to share today so let's get started.


Here is a closer look at this month's Snowmie Stamp and Die Bundle. Plus this month you get a FREE coordinating Snowmie Stencil with your purchase!


Both my cards today are Mini Slimline sized 3x6 inches. This first one features the adorable Rainbow-inspired Snowmie Family sending warm Holiday Wishes.
To make this card I began by stamping out the images, coloring them in with Copic markers, and then die-cutting them out with the coordinating dies. The rainbow dotted tree was inspired by my friend Bobbi, who is an amazing colorist and I thought this was a fun and unique way to add color to the tree.

I then blended onto a mini slimline panel Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon, and Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide Inks and then spritzed the background with water and picked up the droplets with a paper towel to lift some of the ink. This just adds to the snowy effect. 

Another thing I did was to create a Snow Bokeh stencil by using 3 circle dies from the Slimline Envelope Creator Die Set, and blended white pigment ink over the top part of the panel. Slightly overlapping the circles to create the bokeh effect. Look closely at the sky part for them they are faint but there for extra detail. 

To the background, I applied a layer of falling snow using Worn Linen Expanding Mousse.

The sentiment was stamped in white pigment ink and embossed in white onto black cardstock. Then the rest was to glue all the elements in place. The snowflakes come from the die set. The really fun thing about these die sets is that they come with so many extra dies to stretch out the possibilities!

My favorite part of carmaking is adding embellishments and finishing details. The crystals on the snowflake centers, the white gel pen details, the glossy accents on the nose and buttons, and the chunky glitter on the tree along the bottom of the card. Yes adding these take a little more time but they are what makes your card stand out!

I am in love with this next rainbow-inspired cutie! What is it about rainbows that just make you happy?! I can't explain it but whatever it is I know it is why I do it! Rainbows bring me joy and it is why it is my favorite color!

This next mini slimline was done exactly the same as the previous card only in a vertical layout. Obviously, the images are different but the techniques were the same. To this sky, I added Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide ink along the top and I left the bottom white to give it the snow illusion.

This time, rather than using snowflake die-cuts I stamped them in white onto the background.

The bottom sentiment snow hill panel I added was a happy mistake. I actually stamped a different sentiment underneath on the card panel which wasn't the stamp I had wanted to use. So to cover it up I created a hill for the sled to sit on and added the new sentiment instead.

Did you notice the mini slimline envelope I placed under each of the cards? They come with the two pierced plate designs and fit these cards perfectly as they measure 3.5x6.5 inches. These envelopes are part of the new also just released Slimline Envelope Creator Die Set. They also come with a bunch of tag builder dies. So I thought it would be fun to make a bunch of Christmas rainbow gift tags.

If you look closely each tag was either finished using the coordinating Snowmie Stencil or I used the pierced plates from the Slimline Envelope Creator Die Set to add details. I also added the For You and the snowflakes that were die cut using holographic cardstock. Under each colored tag is another white tag with a pierced edging so that you can write who the gift is for.

3D Christmas Tree Flat Shaker Card | Honey Bee Stamps

3D, Christmas Tree, Flat Shaker, Card, Frameless Shaker, Honey Bee Stamps, Christmas Card, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, Pine trees,CAS,

Hello, my friends!

Today's 3D Christmas Christmas Tree Shaker card is part of the Honey Bee Stamps Vintage Holiday Release Instagram Hop. I hope you can join us →there and leave a comment to qualify for two $25 Gift Cards to their shop.

This card is a bit of an oxymoron. It has 3D elements along with a flat shaker window, but the trees do fold flat to fit in an envelope. I will also share a Reel on Instagram where I show you what that looks like later today.

CARD RECIPE
  • Dry emboss the snowflake design using the Pierced Fancy Flakes Cover Plate onto a card panel using white cardstock.
  • Trim off the edges of the panel. (This isn't necessary but I wanted to create a smaller frame to glue to the card front).
  • Build your shaker pocket. 
    • Cut plastic/acetate slightly larger than the panel. 
    • Cut off corners.
    • Fold sides flaps down and adhere in behind with double-sided tape, leaving one side open.  
    • Pour in shaker bits I used Blizzard Confetti Mix (Glitter, flat sequins, or confetti work best to keep down the bulk and they slide around better with limited space).
    • Adhere the remaining flap down to close the shaker pocket.
    • Add the shaker pocket to the front panel of the card base. I used foam tape, but not necessary if you want to make it flat.
    • Use either scrap plastic from packaging, acetate, or a premade shaker pocket. I used packaging plastic this time. If you want to see how I created the first-ever frameless/edge to edge/infinity/flat shaker card watch this video I made a few years ago→ HERE.

  • Cut four layers for each tree using the Pine Tree Dies (Largest and smallest were used here).
  • Used a scoring board and score each tree down the middle. 
  • Fold each tree.
  • Add a line of liquid adhesive down the middle score line of each layer. Glue scored edge of the next tree down. Repeat until the last tree is glued to the top. Allow them to dry completely before fluffing.
  • Add gems or embellish as desired.

  • Die-cut the Merry Christmas greeting from Bitty Buzzwords: Holidays Dies I glued four layers together to give it that chipboard thickness and look.
  • Finish off by gluing the elements to the card front.

I hope you were inspired by this 3D Christmas Tree Flat Shaker Card. I had so much fun making it. This technique will work with many other die cuts to create the 3D effect. I hope you give it a try!

Here's a quick video to show you how this came together.

Check Your Boo Bees Slimline Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Check Your Boo Bees, Slimline Card,Honey Bee Stamps,punny, Boobs,breast cancer awareness,Halloween Card,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,Boo, Ghosts

Hello, my Crafty friends!

Today's card is kind of a Public Service Announcement as well as a punny not so funny card if you know what I mean. 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month as well as the obvious Halloween Month. So I thought it would be fun to mash the two. 

As you may or may not know I don't just make cards, I also am an Oncology Nurse in my day or evening job (depending on what shift I'm working). Did you know breast cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer in women and is the second most common cancer overall! Also, it is rare but it can also happen in men. It's true I have had male breast cancer patients. So please, do your diligence and get your tata's checked, and while you are at it check everything else. I like to think of October as a reminder to look at when I have to book my next Mammogram and check-up. 

Ok enough serious talk, let's look at this slimline Boobee card! Get it, Boo Bees... LOL! I crack myself up sometimes and laugh at my one jokes πŸ˜‚ life is too serious!!!

Check Your Boo Bees, Slimline Card,Honey Bee Stamps,punny, Boobs,breast cancer awareness,Halloween Card,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,Boo, Ghosts

I began by adding white ink blending to the black slimline panel by using the top layer of the Scattered Leaves Stencils. Don't they kinda look like ghosts shapes? For a pop of color and some sparkle, I splattered some gold onto the background panel.

I then die-cut all the elements I needed to put it all together. The Ghosts, the Boo Buzz word, and the letters. See all the supplies linked below.

Finally, I stamped out the bees onto vellum, to give them a ghostly look and then stamped out the sentiments that were then heat embossed in gold.

I hope no one takes offense to my card today. I love punny cards and hope you do too.  If time permits I will share an IG reel over on my Instagram feed. Hope to see you there.

In the meantime, ladies check your ladies and all your other parts, gents you can do the same (your own parts I mean), and thank you for stopping by! Until next time... Happy Crafting!
