A Sweet Happy Bee-lated Birthday Card | Honey Bee Stamps



Happy Monday Friends! 

Today I have a really fun card to share with you featuring a ton of Honey Bee Stamp sets. I thought it would be fun to pair the Blah Humbunny with his stuffed little belly surrounded by sweet treats to make a Bee-lated birthday card. I know it's way too punny but I couldn't help myself 😂 I will also be sharing this card on the HBS Blog if you want to head over there.

CARD DETAILS

To begin I stamped the cupcake and the slice of cake from the Pice of  Cake set, onto a card front then stamped all the other images on a separate piece of paper Neenah cardstock. The rest of the images I used come from Mae the Mouse, and the Birds and the Bees sets.  I then colored all the stamped images in using Copic markers and then die cut them with their coordinating dies.

Copic List: Bunny (W1,W2, W5, RV10, RV00, 0) Chocolates (E18, E29, E39, C1, C3, RV00) Cookie base and cake (E00, E000, E50, E21) Icing (R81, R83, R85) Wrapper (B00, B02) Strawberry (RV29, R27, R46, YG03, YG13, YG17) Bees (Y08, B00)

For the card front sentiment, I used a few sets to come up with the final greeting. The "Happy" and the "- lated" come from the Lily the Lamb set. The "BEE" comes from the Hi Honey set and the "I can explain..." comes from the Blah HumBunny set. I love how the Honey Bee sets all work well together to build your own sentiments.

Once my scene was complete and my pieces were all glued down and popped into place, I added Liquid Pixie Dust to the cupcake and the bee's wings for sparkle and then added a layer of glossy accents and set the card front off to dry.

To the inside of the card, I added the Bunny's excuse by stamping out the "I love my Sweets" sentiment that comes from the Brie Mine stamp set.

Once the card front was dry, I added it with foam tape to a Large Scalloped frame that I had die cut and glued to the card base.  And that pretty much completed the card.

Raccoon Hugs Valentine's Day Card | Mirror Stamping | Ink On 3


Hello friends! Hope you all are staying warm. Right now our city and surrounding areas are under an extreme weather warning so we will be hanging out close to home this weekend!

Today I have a super cute Valentine's Day card to share with you featuring the newest set from Ink On 3 Racoon Hugs.  As soon as I saw the image of the raccoon holding a balloon I knew I wanted to create a mirrored image to make a cute little raccoon couple for Valentines Day. Today is also Day 2 of the Kathy Racoosin's #thedailymarker30day Color Challenge so make sure you are following me along on Instagram to catch my daily coloring posts 😉

 CARD DETAILS

To begin I added Versa fine Black Onyx ink to the image of the raccoon, avoiding the arm and balloon and then stamped it onto a piece of acetate a few times using a stamp positioner. I then used the inked acetate sheet to transfer the image onto the cardstock before the ink dried, using my finger to press the image into the paper. Next, I stamped the raccoon with the balloon beside the mirrored one to create a couple.

To create a moon, I drew a circle around the raccoons using a pencil and then colored the images and the background in using Copic markers. Once the background was completely dry I used the small star image from Merry and Bright and the larger star image from Fairy Christmas, stamped them out using Juicy Ink and then heat set them with Arctic White embossing powder. I also added a layer of Liquid Pixie Dust overtop the sky area and the balloon to add sparkle to the card. To the balloon, I also added a layer of glossy accents.

Finally, to finish off the card I stamped the sentiment below the raccoon couple using Juicy Ink and then heat set it with Black as Night Embossing Powder.
