Frameless Slimline Holiday Shaker Card | Honey Bee Stamps



Frameless Slimline Holiday Shaker Card | Honey Bee Stamps by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

Hello Friends!

This week starts off the Honey Bee Stamps 4th Annual 12 Designers of Christmas Event, and they are showcasing little old me on Day 2 😊


So today I am back with another shaker card. If you have been following me you know that I have been making a few of these frameless holiday shakers lately. This time I thought it would be fun to create the slimline version. The process of making them is super simple, so if you want to know how they are made watch my latest video →HERE  I promise it is much easier to watch then for me to try to explain it.

CARD DETAILS

I started this card by cutting out the panel for the card out of Bristol paper. The panel was cut to 4x8 inches and then eventually glued onto the same size card base. 

I wanted to make a northern sky background so I used a bunch of Distress Oxide Inks to blend out the colors for the background (see links below for the colors used). Once I had completed the blending I then spritzed the paper with water and pick up the droplets with a paper towel.

For the snowy hill that the snowman is on, I die cut a piece of white cardstock with the DOUBLE STITCHED OVALS. I then stamped out the sentiment from the SEASON TO SPARKLE set and heat set the black Versafine Onyx Ink with clear embossing powder.

To the sky, I glued on some of the snowflakes from the LAYERING SNOWFLAKE DIES.

This darling little snowman comes from the SNOW BUDDIES stamp set that I colored in using Copic markers and then die cut with the coordinating SNOW BUDDIES DIE set. I also added some Liquid Pixie Dust to the body to add some sparkle and added some gel pen details to the scarf and ear muffs.

To fill in the shaker I used MOON DANCE and a BLIZZARD CONFETTI MIX. To the top of the plastic, I added some white enamel stickers from the BACK TO BASICS set.

I hope this Frameless Slimline Holiday Shaker inspired you today. I absolutely love how this bright and colorful card turned out and hope you did too.

Thank you for stopping by 😊
Until next time... Happy Crafting 👋

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Stargazer Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Happy December Friends!

Welcome to another release from Altenew, and I am super excited to be here to help celebrate. This time Altenew is releasing the Stargazer Build-A-Flower Set. Make sure to stop by the Altenew Card Blog for all the release details, plus it will also get you started on today's blog hop if you haven't started yet. If you have, you would have arrived from the uber-talented Kelly Griglione's blog. 

Today I have a few cards to share with you featuring this beautiful Stargazer Set, so thanks for hopping by and let's get started.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Stargazer Release Blog Hop + Giveaway by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

CARD DETAILS

For this first card, I began by using the little floral cluster included in the set to stamp out rainbow clusters onto the background. Since I only have a few inks from Altenew, I used other inks that I had in my collection. You can use whatever you have, but Altenew does make it easy for you as they also sell this kit also with an Ink Bundle.

The inks I used were water-reactive, so to avoid coloring in the flowers I sprayed the panel with water to allow the ink to bleed and then naturally color in the flowers for me. I then just painted in the centers with the coordinating rainbow ink colors.

Next, I stamped out the flower. Again here stretching out the ink pads I did have by doing some first and second generation stamping. I then die cut the flower and the leaves with the coordinating dies.

To the background, I then added the Mega Friend die that I die cut twice (once in white and black) to add a shadow layer to the sentiment and make it more visible on the card front. I then glued the Stargazer flower in place and added the black sentiment strip across it that I had heat embossed using white embossing powder.

For this next card, I chose a yellow and orange palette. Again on Bristol paper, I stamped out the clusters of flowers and then colored them in using the same ink line I had stamped with earlier. I then stamped out the Flower and leaves again and die cut them with the coordinating dies and glued them to the card front using foam adhesive.

For the greeting, I simply stamped the sentiment along the bottom of the card.

To finish this card, I added some coordinating pearls added glossy accents to the centers of the flowers.
