3D Christmas Tree Flat Shaker Card | Honey Bee Stamps

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!

Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting!

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!

Vintage Holiday Release Day 4 Sneak Peeks | Honey Bee Stamps

Iridescent Christmas Glass Ornaments,Honey Bee Stamps, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,  Rainbow,Ink Blending,Stencil, Christmas Card

Hello friends!

We have made it to the last day of sneak Peeks for Honey Bee Stamps Vintage Holiday Release. YAY!

My card features the new Layering Vintage Ornaments Stencils. Have you ever seen Iridescent Christmas Glass Ornaments? They have all the colors of the rainbow and if you know me I love my rainbows! So I just had to make a Christmas rainbow Card πŸŒˆπŸ’

Here is a pic of what I was imagining... can you see the rainbows?


Make sure you stop by the Honey Bee Stamps Blog for more inspiration from the Design Team featuring more day 4 product reveals! Please note that  links will not be active until the Release goes live tonight, October 14th, 2021 @9pm CST.


CARD RECIPE
I'm not going to lie to you and tell you that this card was quick. I like to complicate things by using three colors to blend out the rainbow for each ornament. You can create a beautiful card using one color to blend with I am sure. 

The other thing I did was use 3 different pastes. Which meant I had to make sure each paste was dry before moving on to the next. But once the paste was all dry the rest was fun. I love to embellish the heck out of my cards, the more bling the better. 

Even though this card was time-consuming the results were worth it. I love how it turned out!

Vintage Holiday Release Day 2 Sneak Peeks | Honey Bee Stamps

Vintage Holiday, Release,Sneak Peeks,Honey Bee Stamps, Lovely Layers, Anemones Dies,Winter, White, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,Floral Card,

Hello and welcome back to Day 2 of the Vintage Holiday Release for Honey Bee Stamps.

My card today features the gorgeous new Lovely Layers: Anemone Dies. This is a larger card (A7), simply because I wanted to use all of these flowers together. They would have fit onto an A2 card base but it would have been too small for the sentiment I wanted to use.


Make sure you stop by the Honey Bee Stamps Blog for more inspiration from the Design Team featuring more day 2 product reveals! Please note that  links will not be active until the Release goes live on October 14th, 2021 @9pm CST.

CARD RECIPE

Here is a breakdown of what I used to make this pretty wintery card.


Stamps: 

Dies:

Paper: 

Stencil:

Ink:

Emb. Powder:

Die Cut Machine:

Adhesives:

Embellishments:

Other Tools:

Once my Anemone flowers were all die-cut and assembled, I then just had to figure out the background design. I  used the ★Crystal Kaleidoscope Stencil to apply this silver paste to the Scallop A7 Card Frame layer. 

Vintage Holiday, Release,Sneak Peeks,Honey Bee Stamps, Lovely Layers, Anemones Dies,Winter, White, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,Floral Card,

To make these centers pop, I used foam tape in between each layer and added glue to the outside edge of the center layers which were then dipped in sparkle glitter. Before attaching the centers to the flowers, I drew some black lines on the base of the petals. To the end of the lines, I added the cutest little domes to make it look like Stamen.

Here's a close-up. Check out the dimension. Also, it is difficult to see from the photos but I did blend Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink to the white centers of the flowers to give some extra depth and dimension.

I hope you were inspired by this Hello Winter Anenomes Card. If you have been following me you will know that I love all the Lovely Layer Flowers from Honey Bee and this Anemone did not disappoint.
