Honey Bee Stamps Cheerful Card Set - Using Hexagon Scraps


Hello friends!

Like every other papercrafter out there,  I always have an abundant supply of scrap paper. I like to keep my good scrap pieces, but sometimes it gets to a point where it becomes too much. So for today's project I thought I would pull out some of my scraps and get busy on creating a Cheerful Card Set. 

Well, mission accomplished.... kinda, but not really... still have tons of scraps and could probably make another 50 of these sets! πŸ˜†

To create this set was actually quite simple. Here is how i did it:

  • Picked out my scrap pieces using rainbow colors and white.
  • Used the Hexagon Bunches Die and created my hexagons from each color.
  • Glued each hexagon in rainbow order to an A2 sized piece of cardstock. Making sure to glue them as straight and close together as possible.
  • Cut the created background piece of cardstock into equal hexagon strips. See iPhone image below.

  • Got Creative. I used the strips as focal points on each card. I ran each of the strips through the sizzix to align with the large Double Stitched frame die panel, cutting them in a few different lengths and angles.
  • Next, I layed out all my Honey Bee Sentiment and stamp sets in front of me and then planned out which images and stamps I wanted to use on each panel.
  • Stamped out and colored the images in. I used Spectrum Noir Markers for quick coloring, but you can use whatever you like.
  • Glued down the colorful hexagon strips in place, and attached the sentiment strip and dies in place.
  • Adhered the panels to the card bases.
  • Finished the cards by adding embellishments. I added some sparkle pen to the images as well as glossy accents.

Here are some close ups of each card.

Make a Wish Birthday Action Wobbles Card ft. Magic Dragons from Ink On 3


Hello Friends!

Today I have a super cute card to share with you all featuring one of Ink On 3's newest Stamp sets, Magic Dragons. How cute is that little dragon?!
Even cuter when you see it move!

Make a Wish Birthday Action Wobbles Card ft. Magic Dragons from Ink On 3

For this card I thought it would be fun to make it look like rainbow rays were shooting out from the candle's flames. To create the rays I made a stencil out of a plastic sleeve (cutting a long "V" like slit toward a center point that I had marked in the middle of the plastic sheet). I then used my plastic template to blend out each distress oxide ink onto some bristol paper. I wiped the plastic off after each color and rotated the template to line up with the previous color. Then I just repeated the process over again until the rainbow was complete.

Next, I die cut the panel using a square stitch frame. Then I stamped the candle, making sure the flame was centered over rainbow's vertex and also stamped out my sentiment. To the flame and the candle I added some sparkle pen and then added glossy accents. I then stamped out the dragon using Blackout ink and then colored it in with Spectrum Noir Markers. Once it was all colored, in I fussy cut the image out and mounted this cutie on a mini action wobbles spring. I finished it off by embellishing the card with some flat sequins and voila, done!

Make sure you follow me on Instagram so you can see this cutie in action πŸŽ₯

Quick Easter Card ft. Fadeout No Line Coloring Ink from InkOn3


Hello Friends!

I can't believe it's the first day of March already, before you know it Easter will be here! So I thought I would begin the Month with a quick Easter Card 🐣

For this card, I experimented with the new Fadeout ink from InkOn3.
This ink truly has magical properties as the stamped lines take on the color that you apply next to them. Making No line coloring super simple and fun!

Quick Easter Card ft. Fadeout No Line Coloring Ink from InkOn3

Here are a few tips that I found helpful when using the Fadeout ink.

  1. Make sure your stamp is squeaky clean (any ink residue from the stamp will transfer that color to the image being stamped).
  2. Less is more. Avoid using too much water. If you do, the water may bleed out the stamped line creating a thicker blurred line.  

I also used the new Blackout Ink on the inside of the card. I love this ink! It dries almost instantly which allows you to begin coloring right away, plus it doesn't stain your clear stamps!
