Honey Bee Hexagon Shaker Christmas Card | Honey Bee Stamps


Honey Bee Hexagon Shaker Christmas Card | Honey Bee Stamps by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

Are you all ready for Christmas!? Can't BEE-lieve it is only a little of a week away 😬 How has this year just flown by... Haha, sorry I can't help myself with the Bee Punnies, lol! Well, today I wanted to take this opportunity as one of the Honey Bees and wish you all a very Merry and Bright Christmas as this will be my last Christmas Card for the year.

  CARD DETAILS

To begin this card, I stamped out the MERRY LIGHTS Stamp onto vellum paper and using Versafine Onyx Ink and then heat set the ink using black embossing powder. On the underside of the vellum, I used 3 Copic markers to color glow around each light. Next, I die cut the panel for the shaker portion of the card using the third largest Hexagon from the HEXAGON SOLID STACK CUTS. I then blended out the panel using 3 colors of distress oxide ink (see links below).

Now as you all know I am a little obsessed with making Frameless Shaker Cards and today I wanted to show you that it is possible to make these shakers any shape only this time I used vellum. I cut the stamped vellum piece a little larger than the hexagon panel that I had blended out. I then cut each corner off of the vellum hexagon piece and flipped back the vellum flaps to secure it to the back of the hexagon panel using Scor-tape. Before closing up the shaker pocket I filled it with BOKEH LIGHTS Confetti. To finish and embellish the shaker pocket, I added coordinating Crystal Drops to each Christmas Light bulb and set it off to dry. (If you want to learn more about making frameless shakers click HERE.)

To continue the Honey Bee theme, I stamped out the cute little bees from BEE HIVE, colored them with Copics and then cut them out with the Coordinating BEE HIVE DIES. To each little bee, I added glossy accents to the body and Liquid Pixie Dust to the wings.

To make the Card Base I die cut the largest Hexagon from the HEXAGON SOLID STACK CUTS and then created a hinge to glue the two pieces together. I also die cut a pink and yellow Hexagon in decreasing size to layer on the card front.

On the inside, I stamped out Christmas Wishes by using both the BELIEVE BUZZ WORD and the WINTER stamp sets. I then added another little bee and trail from the BEE HIVE to finish off this cute little Bee themed Christmas Shaker Card.

I hope this Honey Bee Hexagon Shaker Christmas Card has inspired you today.

Until next time... Happy Crafting 👋

CAS Snowflake Stencil Cards | Studio Katia

CAS Snowflake Stencil Cards | Studio Katia by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

Well hello, friends!

Today I am back with a couple of Christmas cards inspired by the new Snowflake Stencils from Studio Katia.

CARD DETAILS

To begin I started by adding Glimmer paste to both panels. For this first card, I used the SNOWFLAKE STENCIL and applied Moonstone Glimmer paste and set it off to dry. Once it was dry I used the frame from the LOOPS: CREATIVE DIE to cut out the card front for what would become the shaker window. Next, I used the ELEGANT SCALLOP OVAL to die cut the opening for the shaker. To the back of the panel, I glued on a piece of ACETATE that I trimmed to cover the opening.

I then used the window as a guide to figure out where to add the sentiment. I then stamped the sentiment from the GIFT TAG GREETINGS:WINTER directly onto the front of the card base and heat embossed it using silver embossing powder. I also added the same embossing to the little bow that I would later embellish the top of the oval frame with.

Next, I added a little pile of the FROST GLITTER and the ICY SPARKLE CRYSTALS directly over the sentiment and then popped on the front shaker panel that I had added FOAM tape too. To finish this card I then glued on the thin dotted frame and glued some more crystals to the card front.

This next card was done the exact same way as the previous card only this time I simplified it even more by not creating a shaker. Also, for this card, I used the FLORAL SNOWFLAKE STENCIL and applied Silver Gem Paste.

Again here I used the frame from the LOOPS: CREATIVE DIE to cut out the panel as well as the same sentiment from the GIFT TAG GREETINGS: WINTER this time stamped onto black cardstock and embossed in white.

To finish up the card I popped foam onto the back of the panel and glued it and the frame to the card base and then embellished the front with SILVER FOIL PEARLS.

Elegant Kaleidoscope Strips and Borders Card Set | December 2019 Large Die of the Month | Spellbinders


 Elegant Kaleidoscope Strips and Borders Card Set | December 2019 Large Die of the Month | Spellbinders by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

Hello crafty friends and happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a good week so far.

Today my cards feature Spellbinders Kaleidoscope Trio Strips and Borders which are in the December Large Die of the Month Kit. To be honest I wasn't too sure if I was going to like these dies but that changed quickly once I started to die cut them out and layer the pieces together. I love the potential and versatility that they offer in combination or when used separately. So needless to say don't judge a die until you've used it, lol!

  CARD DETAILS

For this first card, I began by die cutting the bottom layer from a white piece of cardstock. I ran this flower-like die twice to create two rows of flowers. I then lined up the border die to cut off the bottom. To fancy up the card a little I die cut the top layers using a metallic gold foil (I also did the same as you will see for the other cards) and then glued them in place.

Next, I glued die cut panel to a light blue layer that I had previously adhered to the card base. To embellish I used a medium-sized light blue pearl to the center of each flower and then added larger white pearls to the spaces in between.

The sentiments I used in all of the cards today come from the Deco Borders and Corners Stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.

For this next card, the process was identical to the one above, only this time I did three rows and flipped the middle row to nestle into the row before it.

Once again I used some white pearls to embellish it and stamped out the sentiment from the same set. I just love how the white pearls pick up and reflect the pink color from the paper.

This next card turned out to be my favorite one of all, and to be honest I thought it was the die I was going to like least! But just look at the beautiful detail. So dainty... it reminds me of lace on a vintage wedding dress. Again, my process was the same, only this time I used an Ivory colored cardstock panel.

To embellish, I used vintage pearls to coordinate with the ivory and continue with the vintage look.

So pretty, right!? I think it will make a perfect card for a Wedding.

Now that you know my favorite card. I'd love to hear which one you like best?

I hope this elegant Elegant Kaleidoscope Strips and Borders Card Set inspired you if you received this month's kit already and if not and you're interested in signing up for a monthly Card Making Club make sure you check out the Spellbinders website for more details!
