Pretty Pawsome Shaker Card - Heffy Doodle

Paws, Shaker Card, Heffy Doodle, how to, hand made card, Stamps, stamping, die cutting, card making, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, pets, sympathy,

Hello Crafty Friends! 

I am super excited to be a guest designer this month for Heffy Doodle. I love their adorable designs and am always happy to collaborate with them.

Ever since we got our puppy, Ruby (our COVID baby), I have become more aware of what pets mean to us humans. Sadly, I wasn't raised with animals and I must admit I had no clue about the bond we share with them. So today, I thought it would be fun to make some generic pawsome cards that could be used for any occasion celebrating a pet in your life. I purposely have left the inside blank to customize the card in the future.

CARD RECIPE


I wanted to make this shaker card as clean and simple as possible and still give it an interactive element.


Paws, Shaker Card, Heffy Doodle, how to, hand made card, Stamps, stamping, die cutting, card making, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, pets, sympathy,
  • Die-cut the paw die from the Pretty Pawsome Dies from a card panel.
  • Die-cut the panel now using the largest frame from the Scalloped Imperial Frames Dies you will use the negative of the die, not the scallop piece. 
  • On another piece of paper, ink blend a yellow, pink, and blue ink to result in a rainbow blend. 
  • Die cut the paw die from the Pretty Pawsome Dies again, this time using black card stock.
  • Line up the die-cut paw pieces and glue them to the rainbow background.
  • To the top layer, attach acetate to the back of the panel, and line the edges with foam tape to create space for the shaker pieces.
  • Die cut the bone strip from the Pretty Pawsome Dies using white paper. Place the little bones and any other shaker bits in the center of the paw. 
  • Remove the protective tape layer and secure the shaker window to the background that has been trimmed to the same size. 
  • Glue the shaker frame to an A2 card base.
  • Die cut the woof sentiment from the Pretty Pawsome Dies a few times and stack them. Line up the letters on the panel and glue them in place.
  • Finish the card by adding a die-cut heart from the Happily Ever Crafter Dies to the shaker window.

Big Birthday Celebration Shaker Card | Honey Bee Stamps


birthday,Big,how to,Infinity,Honey Bee Stamps,ilovedoingallthingscrafty,hand made card,pattern Paper,Flat,Celebration Shaker Card,Frameless,crafty Tips,Die cutting,card making,

Hello friends and Happy Friday!

Today's BIG Birthday Celebration Shaker Card is part of the Honey Bee Stamps Celebration Release Instagram Hop. This type of Shaker card holds a special place in my heart as they are not only fun to create but also brings immense joy when gifted, especially for celebrations. They embody the spirit of festivity all on their own! Who can resist the urge to give them a shake? Certainly not me! 


Plus, I'm filled with gratitude and excitement knowing that Honey Bee Stamps has brought to life these pockets, inspired by an idea I shared with the card-making community years ago! Explore the origins of the shaker pocket concept by clicking HERE.

"Look Mom I'm famous", lol!
 There's my card and my name on the packaging! 

CARD RECIPE
  
SHAKER POCKET
  • Start with one Bee Creative A7 Shaker Pocket. TIP: for best results, bend the flaps, use a bone folder, and press down the edges to make it as flat as possible. TIP: DO NOT remove the protective layer before doing this step as it will scratch the acetate!
  • Trim the background to fit inside the shaker panel. I used a paper from the new Let's Party Paper Pad. TIP: Trim the panel slightly smaller than the Shaker pocket front. I trimmed 1/8th inch off of the top and the side of this 5x7 panel.
  • Create the shaker pocket by gluing 3 of the 4 tabs down. 
  • Pour your shaker elements into the pocket. I used BOKEH LIGHTS Confetti and some coordinating clay circles that I found in my stash.
  • Glue down the last tab to close up the Shaker Pocket.
  • Peel off the protective layer. TIP: I like to just remove the layer over the tabs, while leaving the front still mostly covered with the protective layer. This will prevent any scratches or fingerprints until I am ready to add my die cuts to the front of it.
  • Attach the finished pocket to the card base. TIP: for best results make sure the tape you use is strong as the acetate will try to pop up if not glued down well. I use Sticky Red Tape 1/4" and apply it as close to the edge as possible.

SENTIMENT
  • For the sentiment, I wanted to use black glitter card stock but could not find it so decided to try something else. I used the Big Birthday - Honey Cuts, I die-cut the top layer using black card stock and then rubbed Bee Creative Watermark Ink, and then used WOW Embossing Glitter BLACK GLINT to heat set it. It is difficult to see the glitter in the photo but there is lots of shine IRL.
  • Add tiny glue dots to the back of the die-cut, I like to use liquid glue to allow for wiggle room, plus if there is some smudging it will dry clear. TIP: If there is lots of glue smugging or accidents, use a baby wipe to wipe off excess glue. While the area is still wet, gently wipe it with a clean microfiber dry cloth. This will take care of any streaks.
  • BONUS TIP: Place a stamp block over the sentiment and allow it to dry, this will ensure the die cut is flat and allow for good adhesion to the the acetate.

Spring Hello Card - 3D Blackout Embossing Folder Technique | Honey Bee Stamps

Spring, Hello Card, 3D Blackout Embossing Folder Technique, Honey Bee Stamps, Sandie's Garden, ink  blending, distress oxide inks, how to, hand made card, Stamps, stamping, die cutting, card making, ilovedoingallthingscrafty,

Hello, my friends, and Happy Easter Monday!

Have you checked out the Celebrate Release from Honey Bee Stamps yet!? It is to date my favorite release! Lots of  Spring and birthday-themed awesomeness. Plus some pretty cool tools, including the shaker pockets inspired by me! πŸ‘§

For my card today I had to try again the 3D Blackout Embossing Folder Technique I shared a few weeks ago, this time using the new Sandie's Garden - 3D Embossing Folder. If you aren't the best colorist or have visual issues (like meπŸ™‹) and prefer ink blending, this is an easy way to color a background. 

CARD RECIPE


Remember the cool tools I mentioned earlier, well now Honey Bee has new Beeluxe Detail Blending Brushes! They come in sizes 5, 7, and 10 and are angled to blend into all the small creases and crevasses, making them ideal for a detailed project like this one!

  • Place a piece of watercolor cardstock between the Sandie's Garden - 3D Embossing Folder. I gave it a light mist before running it through an embossing/die-cutting machine. The water just helps mold the paper and prevents any tearing.
  • Add ink to the recessed side/debossed side of the embossed design. I used the new Beeluxe Detail Blending Brushes and distress oxide inks. Don't worry too much about getting a perfect blend or leaving some white areas.

Spring, Hello Card, 3D Blackout Embossing Folder Technique, Honey Bee Stamps, Sandie's Garden, ink  blending, distress oxide inks, how to, hand made card, Stamps, stamping, die cutting, card making, ilovedoingallthingscrafty,
  • Rub a juicy black ink pad all over the colored recessed side of the panel. In hindsight, I would have used a Bristol Paper rather than the watercolor one I used to make the surface smoother for the ink application. That just means I will have to try this technique again, lol πŸ˜‰
  • Trim down the panel. This finished card measures 5x7.
  • Glue to the largest Scallop A7 Frame

  • Wrap coordinating ribbon across the bottom of the card and secure ends to the back using tape.
  • Glue panel onto a side folding A7 Card Base.
  • Stamp out the sentiment from the Storybook Spring stamp set using a matching ink color. I then heat-set it using clear embossing powder.
  • Die cut using coordinating Storybook Spring - Honey Cuts.
  • Add coordinating gems from the Let's Party Gem Stickers.
  • Finish by adding white pen details.
