Elegant Floral Ornament Shaker Cards | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello, my dearest friends, and Happy Monday!

Guess what!? I got my Christmas decorations up this past weekend. What do you all think? Too soon? For me, it's actually late, lol. Usually November 1st. I am ready but this year, maybe because the snow came later I hadn't been itching to do it. I am happy I pushed myself to do it because now I am definitely in the Christmas mood. Alright, enough about decorations, let's talk about today's cards.

Both of my cards feature the beautiful Elegant Floral Frames. This set also has coordinating dies that give you the option to cut the inside of the ornament like I have to add a shaker element. I chose to heat emboss the stamps and then do some loose water coloring, but there is also an option to color these in using the coordinating Elegant Floral Stencils.


CARD RECIPE

  • Stamp images using the new Bee Creative Gold Metallic Ink Pad and heat set with gold embossing powder on Bristol paper.
  • Watercolor the images using a medium of choice. I used Karin BrushMarker Pro pens. 
  • Die cut using coordinating Elegant Floral Frames Dies.
  • Die cut 3 more layers for stacking and gluing together to create the space for the shaker element. You could use thin foam tape strips too if you like. I find this way easier.
  • Die cut a piece of acetate to create the window for the shaker by just cutting the outline of the ornament and glue it to the back of the watercolored layer followed by the stacking layers.
  • On a die-cut Scalloped A2 Frame create a little pile using your shaker bits and then glue the ornament to the panel.
  • Use foam dots to pop the panel onto the card's front layer which was done by applying a layer of the Bee Creative Gold Metallic Ink over the raised areas of the Winter Gems Coverplate and dry embossing the impression into the panel with the die cut machine. The results are subtle but add so much detail.

This next card was done the exact same way only this time obviously using the other ornament and the Plaid Hot Foil Plate was used for dry embossing rather than foiling.

Just to save time I stamped the same sentiment from the Home for the Holidays using the Bee Creative Gold Metallic Ink Pad that I heat set with gold embossing powder and then die cut using the Home for the Holidays Dies.

On the inside, I used another sentiment from the Home for the Holidays set, stamped in using Bee Creative Intense Black Ink

Merry And Bright Sparkly Rainbow Snowflake Card | Studio Katia

card making,stamping,Die cutting,handmade card,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,Stamps,how to,Merry And Bright, Sparkly, Rainbow ,Snowflake Card,Studio Katia,Distress Oxide blending,Christmas Card,

Hello again!

Back again with another rainbow snowflake card. Can you tell I love rainbows and snowflakes πŸ˜†

This card features some of my favorites from Studio Katia. These Chunky Alphas are so fun especially when you want to create your own sentiments and these snowflakes stamps are soooo pretty! 

To make this card, I first blended out the background using the distress oxide linked below. I then spritzed the background with water and picked them up with a paper towel. Next, I die-cut the panel using the frame from the Darling Ribbons and Frames Die set. 

Once the ink was dry I used an anti-static tool to prep the surface for heat embossing. I then stamped the snowflakes onto the background and heat set the ink with white emb. pwd.

Next, I die cut all the letters to spell out the Merry & Bright using the Chunky Alphabet dies. To each letter, I added White Puff Emb. Powder, puffed with heat, and then added glue onto the buff and dipped the puffy part back into Sparkle Glitter for extra sparkly snow. It's so hard to share the sparkle in these photos but in real life, they are so pretty!

I then added foam tape to the back of the letters and popped them onto the card front.

To finish the card, I glued some Icy Sparkle Crystals and added the random Snowflake Glitter to the background.

Merry Poinsettia Christmas Card | Hero Arts

Merry Poinsettia Bunch,Christmas Card,Hero Arts, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, Black,metallic watercolor set, Watercoloring,

Hello, my cardmaking friends! Today I am sharing this Merry Poinsettia Christmas Card created with the Merry Poinsettia Bunch Stamp and Dies from Hero Arts.

I have been wanting to experiment with watercolors on Black Watercolor cardstock for a while and thought these poinsettias were the perfect excuse. I used metallic watercolors as I thought they would pop off the black cardstock the best and add more shimmer and shine to the finished project.

To create this card, I stamped out the Poinsettia Bunches twice onto the Black Watercolor Paper using Versamark Ink. I then heat set the lines using Gold Emb. Pwd. Next, I colored in the images and then used the coordinating die to cut out both Poinsettia Bunches. To the back of the bunches, I added foam tape and popped them onto the front of an A2 Black Card Base, and trimmed off any pieces that hung over the edge.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed with the same Gold Emb. Pwd. and trimmed the banner to fit across the entire width of the card front. I then glued the banner to a layer of the gold Glitter Paper Holiday Sparkle paper that was then glued to the front of the card.

For some finishing touches, I added glossy accents to the flower centers and berries and added some gold pearls.

Now is the time to SHOP if you've been waiting... check out this amazing dealπŸ‘‡


I hope you enjoyed today's Merry Poinsettia Christmas Card.  I have a busy week ahead but hopefully, I will be back to share more projects with you later this week! Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting!
