Sunset Palm Tree Birthday Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Sunset, Palm Trees, Birthday Card, Honey Bee Stamps, ink blending,distress oxide, beach, Hammock dies,Sunkissed Summer,how to, hand made card, Stamps, stamping, die cutting, card making, ilovedoingallthingscrafty,

Hello, my friends!

It feels like forever since my last blog post. I've been taking it slow lately, as I've just returned to work after my back injury. Crafting has had to take a back seat for now. Plus, the weather has been amazing, and I'm trying to enjoy it while it lasts.

Today, I'm excited to share a summer-inspired sunset birthday card with you. There's something magical about a sunset over the ocean, with the beautiful reflections on the water. If you enjoy ink blending, this card is perfect for you and quite simple to make.

CARD RECIPE
See the complete list of supplies below

Sunset, Palm Trees, Birthday Card, Honey Bee Stamps, ink blending,distress oxide, beach, Hammock dies,Sunkissed Summer,how to, hand made card, Stamps, stamping, die cutting, card making, ilovedoingallthingscrafty,

Mask the Sun:
  • Begin by masking out the sun using the Circle Spotlight Stencils. (discontinued, but you can create your own using Sweet Stacks: Circles Dies)
  • Add a piece of masking tape across the bottom of the sun to create the water level.
  • Blend the sun using Mustard Seed Oxide Ink (OI) in the middle, and Ripe Persimmon OI on the edge.
  • Remove the stencil.

Blend the Sky:

  • Cover up the sun with a circle mask.
  • Blend out the sky, starting with Mustard Seed OI, followed by Picked Raspberry OI, Wilted Violet OI, and Blueprint Sketch OI.

Create the Water:

  • Remove the masking tape and cover up the bottom of the sun at the water level.
  • Blend the water to create the sun's reflection using the same colors as the sky.
  • Remove the masking tape.

Finish the Background:

  • Cover up the top half of the card above the water line.
  • Mist the bottom with water and use a paper towel to lift some of the ink from the paper.
  • Trim the panel and glue it to the card base.

Add Glitter:

  • Apply a generous amount of liquid glue to the water line and sprinkle chunky glitter over it.
  • Drag the glue down into the water's reflection and sprinkle prisma glitter over it.

Suitcase Birthday Wishes Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Suitcases, Birthday Wishes, Card, Honey Bee Stamps, Grab Your Passport, Plane Awesome, Travel, vintage, how to, hand made card, Stamps, stamping, die cutting, card making, ilovedoingallthingscrafty,

Hello, my friends!

Today's card couldn't be more fitting. My husband surprised me last week for my birthday with a trip starting in Nashville, Tennessee, and ending in Asheville, North Carolina. If you want to check out the highlights of our adventure click HERE for the Reel. He had this trip planned since December and I wasn't sure I was going to be able to go as I have been dealing with a herniated disc in my back since January. Thankfully I have come a long way with lots of physio and rehab. This trip was just what I needed both physically and mentally as these past 6 months have not been the easiest for me. Hopefully, my 48th year will be a better one!🤞

Hello and welcome back to the Day 3 Sneak Peeks for the Honey Bee Stamps Sunkissed Summer Release. Make sure to stop by the Honey Bee Stamps Blog for more inspiration from the Design Team featuring more day 3 product reveals. Please note links are inactive until the Sunkissed Summer Release goes live on June 7 after the Live Release Party on YouTube at 8 pm EST.


This gorgeous floral Retirement Card features the new Bold Background Plumeria Dies. Hard to tell from the photos but I added so much dimension to these flowers by using foam between the layers.

To frame these Plumerias, I used the scalloped frame from the Lace Heart Layering Frames Dies. The Sentiment comes from the new Rest and Relaxation Stamp Set and die cut with the coordinating dies.

Global, Adventure Card, Honey Bee Stamps, Sneak Peek, Globe Dies, Sunkissed Summer, Air Mail 3D Embossing Folder, how to, hand made card, Stamps, stamping, die cutting, card making, ilovedoingallthingscrafty,

Hello friends!

Welcome back to the Day 2 Sneak Peeks for the Honey Bee Stamps Sunkissed Summer Release. Make sure to stop by the Honey Bee Stamps Blog for more inspiration from the Design Team featuring more day 2 product reveals. Please note links are inactive until the Sunkissed Summer Release goes live on June 7 after the Live Release Party on YouTube at 8 pm EST.


This Global Adventure card features the new Air Mail 3D Embossing Folder that created this incredible background. To replicate this look, I rubbed on a layer of black soot distress oxide ink, sprayed the embossed paper with a few distress oxide colors, and then used a brayer to add the top color to the embossed raised images.

The center of the card features the Lovely Layers Globe Dies, which I popped onto a layer from the Lovely Layers Time to Go Postcard. I then finished the card with some new gems from the Grab Your Passport Gem Stickers.
