Easy Breezy Beach Inspired Friendship Cards | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello, my friends. Hope you are enjoying your last few weeks of Summer, so hard to believe the Fall is less than a month away!

Today I have cards that were super quick to put together and involve minimal stamping, and no coloring. These kinds of cards are perfect for those of you who prefer die-cutting over stamping and coloring.

CARD DETAILS

For all of my cards today I used background images that come from the BEACH VIBES Paper Pad, choosing the papers was probably the hardest part of making these cards, lol! Once I decided on the once papers, I trimmed them all to A2 card panel size.

For this specific card, I used the PALM FROND COVER PLATE to die cut a piece of Beige colored cardstock and then glued it on to the pattern paper.

Next, I die cut gold glitter foliage to add behind all the sentiments, using the TROPICAL BOUQUET DIES.  I then stamped and white heat embossed onto black cardstock all the sentiments from the SEA BREEZE stamp set and then die cut them with the coordinating SEA BREEZE DIES to use on all the cards.

Also on this card, I used a few of the gold HOT TROPICS GEM STICKERS along with some gold pearls.

For this next card, I used both the GARDEN LATTICE CP BASE and the GARDEN LATTICE CP TOP.

I kept this card super simple by just adding a few Monstera leaves from the TROPICAL BOUQUET DIES along with the sentiment and a few pearls.

This final card once again uses a pattern piece of paper from the BEACH VIBES PAPER PAD, this time I only used the GARDEN LATTICE CP TOP, and the rest of the was done as the previous ones only using different foliage and sentiment.

Paradise truly is a state of mind!

Looking at these cards make me feel calm, I just wished I lived closer to the beach. I hope these give you some inspiration for creating your cards using pattern paper.

I really love how these Easy Breezy Beach Inspired Friendship Cards turned out. I think the first one is my favorite but I do love them all. Let me know if you have a favorite in the comments below.

Flippin Fabulous Flip Flop Friendship Card | Honey Bee Stamps


Beach, Flip Flops, Flippin Fabulous, Friendship Card, Honey Bee Stamps, Beach Card, Summer, Hello Summer, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

Today I have a fun Flippin' Fabulous Flip Flop Friendship Card to share with you (try saying that 3 times fast, lol). I've had this idea in my head since I first saw the new FLIP FLOP BUILDER DIES. It was actually inspired by a photo I took a few years ago with some of my friends after we had all gone for a pedicure together. So I thought it would be fun to create the summer version of my photo, which could be used for so many occasions.

Here is the inspiration photo

CARD DETAILS

The first thing I did was select the pattern papers I was going to use on for my flip flops which all came from the HOT TROPICS PAPER PAD. I then used the FLIP FLOP BUILDER DIES to die cut each set of flip flops. I also die cut the flip flops from 110bs white cardstock to add some reinforcement under the pattern pieces.

Once the shoes were assembled, I then created the background. I used the largest DOUBLE STITCHED SQUARE DIE to die cut a panel from kraft cardstock. Next, I used a BACKGROUND BLENDER BRUSH to add some Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink (DO) around the edges of the panel. I then used the SANDY SHORES stamp out the sand on the background this time using Vintage Photo DO ink.

To the back of each flip flop, I added some foam tape and glued them to the card panel. Anything that hung over the edge of the panel I snipped off with scissors.

The sentiments I used come from the FLIPPIN FABULOUS stamp set that I then die cut with the coordinating dies from the FLIPPIN FABULOUS DIE Set.

For an added touch of bling, I used matching gem stickers on each flip flop that comes from the HOT TROPICS Sticker set.

I hope this card inspired you today. I would just love to throw on my flip flops and head to the beach right now, hopefully someday soon I will be able to do that again. Have a wonderful week friends!

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

Missing You - Slimline Beach Shaker Card | Honey Bee Stamps


Missing You, Beach Scene Shaker Card, Honey Bee Stamps, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, Slimline Card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, Making Waves long Border Dies, Hello Summer, Ink Blending,

Hello friends and Happy Monday!

Like many of you, we will be having a staycation this summer. It's time to explore our own backyards and enjoy the nature around us. Thankfully we do have mountains and lakes a few hours away that we can explore. We will miss the beach this year, but hopefully, we will have things figured out for next summer as we would love to travel back to Europe to visit our family and maybe get that beach time in. Today's shaker card theme is about missing someone, so I thought it would be appropriate to create a missing you Beach card.

CARD DETAILS

To start, I began by die cutting 2 of the frames from the SLIMLINE SENTIMENTS EYELET DIES. I then used the MAKING WAVES LONG BORDER DIES to create the sand and the ocean waves using the inside die cuts of the SLIMLINE SENTIMENTS EYELET DIES

Missing You, Beach Scene Shaker Card, Honey Bee Stamps, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, Slimline Card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, Making Waves long Border Dies, Hello Summer, Ink Blending,

I used Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Inks (OI) to blend out the sand on the gentle waves and glued those pieces together and set them aside to use later on top of the shaker card.

For the top of the card panel, I blended out a soft sun using a circle from the CIRCLE SPOTLIGHT STENCIL and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink and glued that to the card base. For the sky, I used Broken China OI.

Next, I glued the ocean waves to the middle are of the card base that I had blended Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean OI. The bottom area was left blank as the sand will cover up the area in the final steps of the card.

I then glued acetate to the scalloped slimline frame and added very thin strips of foam tape all around the edges and across the bottom just under where the sand will be. This will keep the shaker bits from falling all the way down under the sand and make the confetti more visible.

On the top half of the card base, I added my Confetti Mix (see links below) in a pile and then pressed the frame in place.

Before gluing down the sand area, I stamped the missing you sentiment from PARADISE BLOOMS.  I then finished off the card by stamping out a few images from the HELLO SUMMER set and did some simple no-line coloring using Copic markers and added them to the sand area.

I hope this Missing You card doesn't make you miss the beach too much but instead inspire you to send a card to a friend that you spend time with at the beach or anywhere else that reminds you of them.

Have a wonderful week! Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting 👋
