Easy Interactive Swing Cards | Flying Kittens | Honey Bee Stamps


Easy Interactive Swing Cards for Honey Bee Stamps  by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

Happy Monday Friends!

Today I have a couple of fun and EASY Peasy interactive cards to share with you inspired by the images from the Oh My Whiskers Stamp set from the latest Honey Bee Stamps Happy BEEday Release!

So for those of you that would rather watch the process video, this is for you! Don't forget to →Subscribe to my Channel for future inspiration!


Both these cards were made using the same principles to make the stamped images swing on the card. Watch the YouTube video above for how I created the swing mechanism. It's easier to show you then to explain it all, haha! 

CARD DETAILS
To begin I stamped out the images using blackout ink onto Neenah Solar White cardstock and then colored them in using Copic markers. I then used the coordinating Oh My Whiskers Honey Cuts Dies to die cut them out. 

For the Balloon flying Kitty, I blended out the background using Broken China Distress Oxide inks and then I die cut the background panel using the largest Double Stitched Frame. Next, I used the Rainbow Wishes Stencil to add some clouds to the background using texture paste. I then stamped out the sentiment from the Purrrfect Sentiments set and used the coordinating Honey Cuts to die cut the sentiment that I just glued onto the bottom of the card front. For fun, I added paw prints to the balloons using the Friends FURever Stencils with some white pigment ink.

For this next card, I blended on the clouds and the sun from the Rainbow Wishes Stencil again using distress oxide inks and just lightly adding ink to the edge using a very small blending brush. For a pop of color, I added the scalloped edge layer to the card base using the largest A2 Scalloped Fame die.

Happy BEE Day Release Blog Hop | Day 1


Rainbow Wishes card for Happy BEE Day Release Blog Hop Day 1 by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

Happy Fri-YAY my Crafty Peeps and welcome to Day 1 of the Honey Bee Stamps 4th Birthday Bash Blog Hop! 


Today I have another rainbowlicious card to share featuring some of my favorite new goodies from this release.

CARD DETAILS
To begin, I blended tumbled glass distress oxide ink onto a piece of Bristol paper leaving white space around the top left side of the panel where eventually the sun would go. Once the ink was dry I die cut the paper using the largest SCALLOP A2 CARD FRAME. I then applied Golden Crystal Glimmer paste over the new RADIANT BACKGROUND Stencil to add the sun rays onto the background and set it aside to dry while I die cut the rest of the pieces.

The pieces I used on the card front all come from the RAINBOW WISHES Honey Cut set. I die cut them all out of white heavyweight cardstock and then used Copic markers to color in the rainbow arches and also die cut the cloud inserts using white felt. To the circle die cut pieces for the sun I also added the same gold glimmer paste to the top layer.

Before gluing down the rainbow and the clouds to the card front, I stamped out the "sending you" sentiment from the RAINBOW WISHES stamp set in the bottom right corner. Then just glued down the pieces using foam tape to add dimension.

To the inside of the card, I also stamped this fun sentiment from the RAINBOW WISHES stamp set and then just used the same Copic colors I used on the front of the card to color in the rainbow.

You Are Freaking Awesome | Honey Bee Stamps Happy BEE Day Release Preview


You Are Freaking Awesome for Honey Bee Stamps Happy BEE Day Release Preview by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

Yay! Today is Day 5 and the last day of Sneak Peeks for the Honey Bee Stamps Bee Day Release! Click here if you missed any of my sneaks → Day 1Day 2Day 3 and Day 4!

For my card today I wanted to keep it quite playful as the background I created reminded of a Jesters outfit.

CARD DETAILS
To begin I used the DIAMOND PATTERN stencils to blend out a few colors of distress oxide inks. To keep the Diamonds from blending into each other I used a mask I made using post-it notes.

I then stamped into each diamond a design from the new DIAMOND PATTERNS stamp set using the same colored oxide ink I had blended the Dimond out with.

The sentiments I used come from the very sassy AWESOME SAUCE stamp set that I stamped in Juicy Ink SSS|IO3 onto black card stock and then used white embossing powder SSS|IO3 to heat set it. I then used the BANNER BUILDER Dies to cut out the sentiment strips and added them to the card front using foam tape. Finally, I finished off this card with a few CLEAR IRIDESCENT sequins.

GIVEAWAY
Honey Bee Stamps will be doing Daily Giveaways on their BLOG, so I strongly encourage you to stop by daily this week 😉 Plus, you'll get to see more inspiration and Sneak Previews from the rest of the Design Team.

CAS Stitched Flower Card Set | Honey Bee Stamps Happy BEE Day Release Preview

CAS Stitched Flower Card Set for Honey Bee Stamps Happy BEE Day Release Preview by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com


Hello again! As you all can see I have been a busy BEE making all these flower cards 😊 Click → Day 1Day 2 and Day 3 Peeks!

I honestly meant to make one card and then, I realized how quick it was to make one that I ended up making 6 cards! I guess a cardmaker can never have enough cards, lol.


CARD DETAILS

For my cards, I began by using a bunch of colored cardstock scraps and die cutting them with the STITCHED FLOWER DIES to create all the die cut pieces for my flowers.

The next thing I did was assemble the flower heads together. Which simply was to add a foam piece in between the layers of the die cuts.

I then arranged the flowers onto the card bases, and once I was happy I glued down the stems but waited until my sentiment was stamped before I glued the flower tops in place.

This was the only flower I didn't add a stem too. I wanted to create one as an example of what it would look like without the stem. But I did add some confetti to the center to add extra interest.

And for this card example below, I used the same small flower die to create a smaller flower and added two of them to a card front which still fit very nicely.

For the sentiments, I used the stamps from THANKS A BUNCH set, inked them up with Versafine Black Onyx Ink and then heat set them with clear embossing powder SSS | IO3.
