Honey Bee Stamps Deerly Loved Release | Hello Friend 3D Window Shaker Card


Hello friends, and welcome to the Bee Inspired week for Honey Bees Stamps latest Deerly Loved release. My card today features the Threshold Card Dies, but as you can see here I have created a 3D Shaker window rather than using the die as intended.

To create a window all I did was trim the diecut pieces for the door frame in half. For fun I thought I would turn it into a shaker window as well which will also give it dimension and the 3D look.

To make the window more realistic looking, I added some window panes by  I trimming some thin strips of paper and gluing them behind the two openings of the frame. I then glued a light piece of blue paper to the background to close the back side of what will be the window.

Next, I built up the shaker with foam, added the Honey Mix Sequins and then added the acetate piece and closed up the shaker window with the top frame. I then added the wreath to the center of the window that I had made using the accompanying wreath builder dies. To the wreath, I glued on some of the red and white confetti from the Surprise Confetti Mix and filled them in with glossy accents to give them some dimension. I then added the bow and glued the ribbon end behind the window frame.

For the hello sentiment in the center of the wreath, I die cut the hello 3 times, stacked and glued them together and then glued the hello in place. I then added a window ledge by die cutting the threshold piece and then shortening the width of it as it is made to fit on the door, by inserting the die cut piece back into the die and cutting off the end by doing some partial die-cutting.

All that was left to do was glue the 3D window to the card panel and stamp the friend from the Friends Like You set.

Ink On 3 | Holiday Blessings Christmas Trio Card Set

Recently I was inspired by some cards Yana Smakula created. And although she used a background stamp on her cards, I thought I could recreate something similar using some of the new release stamps from Ink On 3's Holiday Blessings Release.

So here is the Holiday Blessings Christmas Trio Card Set I ended up creating with her inspiration.

Ink On 3 | Holiday Blessings Christmas Trio Card Set by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

For this first card, I  masked off the cardstock with tape in the shape of a triangle to create a tree-like shape. I then stamped out the images from the Merry and Bright set using a green and red ink. I then used the Juicy Ink to stamp out the gold embossed images and heat set it using Gold Rush embossing powder.

Once the tree was finished I removed the masking tape and stamped out the sentiment where the tree trunk would be and this time I used Arctic White embossing powder to heat set it. I then die cut a frame to add to the outside of the card.

For this next card, I repeated the same process as above only this time I used the shape of a circle as I wanted to create an ornament.

On the background of the card, I used the evergreen branch from the Poinsettia set for a tone on tone look.

For this final card, I used the images from both the Merry and Bright and the Blessings set to create a red and white background. The white images were heat set using Arctic White embossing powder.

To create a wrapped gift box look, I used ribbon over the patterned background and then added my sentiment to where the ribbon crosses.

I kept these cards quite simple as these would make great cards to mass reproduce. Hope you got inspired by this Holiday Blessings Christmas Trio Card Set. For more inspiration using these products visit the Ink On 3 Blog.

Heffy Doodle October Release Blog Hop


Hello Crafty friends! Today I am honored to join some very talented Heffy Doodlers on the Heffy Doodle October Release Blog Hop. 


I have a few cards featuring the very cute Prehistoric Pals (SSS|SB) to share with you. Who of you reading this today watched the Flinstones growing up? I remember running home from school for lunch every day to wolf down my lunch and watch the Flinstones. Oh, those were the good ol' days! Guess you can say I'm kinda prehistoric too, lol! For inspiration, I drew on my childhood memories as you will notice these  Prehistoric Pals kinda resemble Fred and Wilma Flinstone if you remember them  (Although here Fred has a beard and lost some weight and Wilma finally let her hair down). πŸ˜‚

Heffy Doodle October Release Blog Hop | Prehistoric Pals by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

To make this card I began by stamping out the images from the Prehistoric Pals (SSS|SB) onto Neenah cardstock. I then colored them in with Copic markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies (SSS|SB). So now that all my pieces are diecut I'm going to start creating the scene. Since Fred and Wilma are going clubbing, I cut out the back seat of the log mobile and glued them in place to look like they are sitting side by side in the car. Next, I stamped out some of the rocks onto what would be the background of the card and colored them in. I then colored the night sky in beginning with the moon and gradually I intensified the blue colors as the sky got further from the moon. I colored the ground using black and very dark greys, leaving a lighter spot in the middle. I  then used an alcohol-soaked towel to pick up some of the ink leaving behind some texture markings on the ground. Now that the background is colored all I did was add the stamped images onto the background using foam tape to pop them up and then added the sentiment strip to the bottom that had been stamped and heat embossed in white.

So fun! I think this will make a great card for one of my girlfriends!

I LOVE how this next card turned out. I think it is SO sweet and a great masculine card too!

For this card, again I stamped a few of the images from the Prehistoric Pals (SSS|SB), colored them in and die cut them with the coordinating dies (SSS|SB). To the mammoth, I added some gold gel pen hair like details. I love how the gold shines in real life. Next, I die cut the Stitched Stones (SSS|SB) out using a grey cardstock and then distressed the edges with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink. I then stamped out the Cheers to you from the Whatcha Saying Now? (SSS|SB) set and then die cut the speech bubble with the coordinating die (SSS|SB). For the sentiment I stamped white pigment ink onto a black piece of cardstock and heat embossed it in white. To create the background, I used the Wildside Stencil (SSS|SB) to make this fun animal-like print pattern using Walnut Stain and Gathered Twigs Oxide Inks. All I did next was glue my pieces onto the card front using foam tape.
