Holiday Wishes Inspiration Week | Instagram Hop | Honey Bee Stamps

Mini Messages, Holiday, Front Porch Holiday Add On, Decorative Star Layering Frames,Snowflakes Background Stencils,how to,handmade card,Stamps,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,stamping, diecutting,cardmaking, let in snow,
Hello friends! Yes, I told you I would be back shortly, didn't I?! 

Well, it is because I need you to go on over to my πŸ‘‰Instagram and join the Holiday Wishes Release Instagram Hop as Honey Bee Stamps is giving away two, $50 gift cards to shop the store... Now who doesn't like free money?! All you need to do is leave a comment on each stop and follow along. 



So let's talk a little about this card. I didn't plan it but the card I posted earlier and this one look very similar because of the background color, but this one was the last card I made for this inspiration week and that one was the first card I had made. So funny how they landed on the same day. Anywho...

For this background, I used the layering  Snowflakes Background Stencils with embossing paste. Make sure you allow for drying before moving on to the second layer. Such a pretty background... Love this Stencil set!!!

CARD RECIPE



For this background, I began by ink-blending the blue cardstock panel with Black Soot distress oxide ink and then Embossed the Panel using the SnowFlakes 3D Embossing Folder. I then used the Bee Creative Brilliant White Pigment Ink pad and lightly rubbed the embossed areas of the paper.

Holiday Wishes Inspiration Week Day 1 | Honey Bee Stamps

Northern / Aurora Lights Silhouette Deer Card, Mini Messages,Holiday,Lovely Layers Deer,how to,handmade card,Stamps,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,stamping, diecutting,cardmaking,Honey Bee Stamps,

Happy Sunday Friends!

Today Honey Bee Stamps kicks off the Holiday Wishes Release Inspiration Week. If you are looking for inspiration and ideas on how to use these new products make sure you are tuned in this week as we have lots to share!


I'm keeping my posts as brief as possible as I have lots to share this week! 

CARD RECIPE
Ink - Bee Creative Brilliant White Pigment Ink

To make the northern light background, I first blended out a dark night sky. For the lights, I rubbed the corner of various distress oxide inks and allowed them to dry. Next, I added white pigment ink. I then used my finger to blend the colors in a vertical motion and allowed the background to dry before die-cutting using the star cover plate. I then added more white splatters to finish it off.

I hope you were inspired by the Northern light beauty. Thank you for stopping by and until tomorrow... Happy Crafting!

Jingle Jewel Cards | Crafty Meraki #Merakicraftober

Jingle Jewel Cards, Crafty Meraki, #Merakicraftober,how to,handmade card,Stamps,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,stamping, diecutting,cardmaking, christmas, holiday cards, Effortless Artistry Paper,Gilded Holiday Greetings,

Hello friends!

Today I am celebrating Crafty Meraki's #merakicraftober Christmas Extravaganza over on Instagram where I feature the process of making these cards. Make sure to click this link πŸ‘‰HERE to watch and enter the HOP and Giveaway!


CARD RECIPE
  • To start, first I die cut the Jingle Jewels EAP (Effortless Artistry Paper) using the coordinating Jingle Jewels Para-Dies.
  • Next, I hot-foiled a ton of sentiments using the Gilded Holiday Greetings Foil Plate in a few foil colors and then used the Gilded Holiday Greetings Dies to cut them out. 
  • I then used the Under the Mistletoe Meraki Shimmer to do some dry embossing on the background papers, and then ink blended the edges of the panels with a coordinating ink color.
  • Once all the pieces are done all you need to do is assemble each card. First I arranged the Jingle Jewels on the the front of the panel and then used Press and Seal to pick them up and flip them over. For each ornament, I used gilded thread and added it to the top using a little piece of tape. 
  • Add glue or foam to the back of the ornaments and stick them onto the front panel. 
  • Straighten and secure the gilded thread behind the panel with tape, sandwiching them between the card front panel and the card base.
  • Add your Gilded Holiday Greetings to the front of the card and finish by adding Meraki Sparkle Gold for some sparkle.

As you can see this card was done the same way, only using different colors.

If you love mass-producing and sending out Christmas cards but don't have time to spend coloring them all, these Effortless Artistry Papers (EAPs) are the way to go! Crafty Meraki has so many variations of them now you can skip the card-making steps you like doing the least.

For this last card, I just turned it into a shaker card using some plastic packaging and glued the Jingle Jewels on the front of the plastic panel.

Waffle Flower 2023 October Release Blog Hop and Giveaway


Hello Friends!

I am super excited to be joining Waffle Flower for this month's October Release! Today I have three cards to share and I hope you and hope you will enjoy them. Make sure to check out each stop in today’s blog hop for fun, inspiration, and chances to win some of these new goodies! Find all the hop details near the end of this post.

This first card features the Pop-Up Leaves Panel Die and the Coordinating Stencil. The stencil makes for the easiest ink blending of these Fall colors, and I love the subtle dimension you get from pinching the leaves together.

Using a different color behind the die-cut panel also adds more dimension to the card. To finish this simple Fall card I used the Script Thank You Die, done in Glitter Gold cardstock with the white shadow background.

Next, I have this fun Fall theme Postage Card featuring the newest additions to the collection.

On the Kraft background, I stamped in watermark ink, the new Multiple Fall Leaves Stamp SetI also added a couple of die cuts from the new Dainty Fern Die set as an added detail.

Waffle Flower, 2023, October Release, Blog Hop, Giveaway,how to,handmade card,Stamps,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,stamping, diecutting,cardmaking, Fall,Postage Collage

For this last card, I used the Multiple Fall Leaves Stamp Set, which I heat embossed in gold, and then used the coordinating Multiple Fall Leaves Stencil to ink blend the warm colors. Once all the ink and added splatters were dry I die-cut the leaves with the Multiple Fall Leaves Die Set. This little trio is so versatile and a great value for the price point!

Waffle Flower, 2023, October Release, Blog Hop, Giveaway,how to,handmade card,Stamps,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,stamping, diecutting,cardmaking, Fall,Postage Collage

For the subtle background, I used the Woodgrain Die. This Die would also make a great window for a shaker card (next time). And to finish this beauty off I used the Print Thank You Die
