Just imagine if the rings of a tree were actually rainbow-colored, how beautiful and colorful this world would be! Then again, trees would be even more endangered than they already are because we would all be chopping them down๐Ÿ˜†

Inclusive celebrations are always worth cherishing, and what better way to express your love and support than through heartfelt cards? Today I bring you a delightful trio of pride-inspired cards to commemorate a birthday, anniversary, and the arrival of a precious little one. These cards not only celebrate milestones but also promote a message of inclusivity, love, and acceptance.

CARD RECIPE


I will explain how I made one of these cards as the rest were done similarly. 

Using the Lovely Layers Slice and Stump Die, cut out your tree rounds. For a touch of pride, color the tree rings with vibrant rainbow hues using KARIN BRUSHMARKER PRO markers. To make the rings pop even more I used a distress brayer and rolled black ink over each die and then carefully placed the painted stumps back into their mold to press the black line impressions back into the stumps. This adds depth and dimension to them. I then glued them to a black bark layer. The leaves I used come from the  Lovely Layers: Dogwood Dies adding a cheerful element to the card.

To complete this card I added a sentiment from the Inside Snarky Birthday Sentiment Stamp set stamped and heat embossed in white, then die cut with the coordinating die. This whimsical heart comes from the Heart Hug Die set, topped with a sparkly gem from the Aurora Borealis Gem Stickers. The background for each of these cards, (although it is difficult to see from these pictures) is full of texture that comes from using the Woodgrain 3D embossing folder.

For the Anniversary card of the Trio, I used two of the stumps and made them look like a little couple. This time my sentiment for the card came from the Mini Messages Stamps and Dies.

For comparison, I initially tried outlining the rings with a fine-tip black pen which was a bit time-consuming but the results are definitely darker. But using the brayer was super easy especially when making multiples.

This final card is for a family, welcoming their little one. Here again, the sentiment comes from the Mini Messages Stamps and Dies.

Even though these are just colorful stumps, I think turned out to be so sweet.

You're Amazing Rainbow Forest Card | Honey Bee Stamps


Welcome back, crafty friends! 

In honor of Pride Month, I am combining two great things— my love of all things rainbow and acts of kindness in support of our LGBTQ+ friends—to create a vibrant and heartwarming card. Our world more than ever needs more love and less hate. 

CARD RECIPE


Begin by selecting a piece of sturdy cardstock in a size suitable for your card base. I used Canson Watercolor paper for this 5x7 Card. Apply a rainbow spectrum of Distress Oxide Inks onto the paper panel. Start with the lightest color and gradually work your way across to the darkest color. (See links below for colors used).


Using a distress brayer apply black ink to the raised side of the Into The Woods 3D Embossing Folder.
Place the cardstock inside the embossing folder and run it through your die-cutting machine, following the manufacturer's instructions. This will create a beautiful raised rainbow pattern on your cardstock with a dark background to contrast the colors. Trim the panel and add it to a 5x7 Card Base. I used a piece of craft foam to slightly pop it off the card base.

On black cardstock, stamp the sentiment "Just wanted to say" from the Mini Messages Stamps and the You're Amazing" from the Big Time Kindness Stamp set using Bee Creative Brilliant White Pigment Ink and heat setting them in white Emb. Powder. Use coordinating dies from sets to die and cut them out and glue them to the center of the card panel.

For a touch of sparkle, I added glue to the tree lines and then sprinkled it with some glitter while the glue was still wet.


And there you have it—a stunning, rainbow-inspired card bursting with love and kindness! This Pride Month, celebrate diversity and spread joy by creating your own handmade cards. Remember, a small act of kindness can brighten someone's day, and crafting allows us to share that love with others. Show your support, spread kindness, and let your love shine through your craft!


Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting!
Love more, judge less.

Colorful Rainbow Coneflower Mini Slimline Card | Honey Bee Stamps Day 2 Summer Stems Sneak Peek

Color Stamp Set, Rainbow, Coneflower, Mini Slimline, Card,Honey Bee Stamps, Summer Stems, Sneak Peek,Pride, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Happy Sunday!

Welcome back to Day 2 Sneak Peaks for the Summer Stems Release from Honey Bee Stamps.

I told you yesterday I had another Pride Inspired Card to share with you today, and here is! Isn't it the coolest rainbow card you have ever seen?! I am so happy with how this came together, and it looks even better than I had imagined in my head, lol!

This Mini Slimline features a few new products coming soon. The gorgeous Lovely Layers: Coneflower Honey Cuts and the fun Color Stamp Set.

Make sure you stop by the Honey Bee Stamps Blog for more inspiration from the Design Team featuring more day 2 product reveals! Please note that some links will not be active until the Release goes live on June 15th, 2021 @ 8pm CST.


CARD RECIPE
  • To start I die cut all the pieces of the Lovely Layers: Coneflower Honey Cuts from white cardstock.
  • I then colored each layer of the petals in rainbow order. Making sure the same colors overlapped the previous layers. 
  • Glue and stack the layers together. To keep the petals separated I added some foam squares in between the layers.
  • Color and piece together the center. I added sparkle glitter to add some bling. 
  • Color in the leaves.

  • On a Mini Slimeline Cardbase (3" x 6") front, stamp out the sentiments. Figure out the layout first and position of your flower pieces and then use a stamp positioner to stamp out the sentiments. Stamps come from the new Color Stamp Set. As you can see I curved the top sentiment over the coneflower.
  • Glue the flower pieces in place.

  • On the inside of the card, I stamped out a greeting from the new My Favorite Flower Stamp Set. In hindsight, it would have been easier to stamp out the greeting on the inside first before gluing on the flower in the front. Luckily I got a good impression the first time with a stamping block. The Honey Bee Intense Black Ink sure helped!
