Hello Friends, hope you had a wonderful week, and Happy FriYAY! 

It is time for another Tonic Stamp Club Release Blog Hop and this month it is all about Little Monsters!!! Perfect for Halloween cards or just all-year-round fun cards for birthdays and other occasions. 

If you have already joined the hop you should have arrived from my friend Erica's Blog.  I will link the complete hop list and giveaway details near the end of this post. I have a bunch of cards to share today so let's get started.


Here is a closer look at this month's Stamp and Die Bundle.

  • 6x8" stamp and die set contains 28 stamps and 18 dies.
  • Polka dot mini-slimline sized die without cutting edges great for mini-slims, creating larger background panels, and for DIY stencils.
All my cards are pretty simple. I first colored all the Monsters using Copic Markers, then die-cut them with their coordinating dies. 

For this first card, I used the Polka Dot Die to create an A2 size panel. I then glued the panel to a rainbow-colored piece of pattern paper and trimmed it to create 2 border pieces for the first two cards.

I then just added this cute little monster colored in green, along with the sentiment that I thought worked well with all his eyes!

This next Monster may be my favorite one. That face is so sweet, I think it would cheer anyone up.

For fun, I added the colorful googly eyes to the polka dot pattern.

For this next card, once again I used the Polka Dot Die. This time I used it to create a stencil for this background. Onto the black cardstock, I used white pigment ink to add the Polka dots in the background. Here again, I used the googly eyes to add some fun and interest to the card. I think this would be a fun card to send a friend around Halloween.

Shake the card and the eyes follow you. So fun! Love how this card turned out.

If you didn't already know, I love rainbows. So here are a few fun rainbow-inspired birthday cards, because I never have enough!

I sound like a broken record, but once again, I used the Polka Dot Die to cut out the background... it's just a fun die! To the top of the card base, I then blended yellow, pink, and blue Atelier inks to create a rainbow blend.

Next, I stamped the party sentiments and added the partygoers to the front, and finished them by adding on their googly eyes. Hard to see from the picture but the blue monster has sparkly fur. I also used glossy accents to add raised details to some of the areas. FYI, I can no longer find the link to the googly eyes I used, so I have linked to a similar source below to Amazon.

And finally, I was left with one little monster that I added to a rainbow pattern background. So simple when you are using pattern paper!

This little monster looks pretty excited about his cake. Who doesn't like birthday cake, right?!

Framed Lovely Layers Floral Bouquet | Honey Bee Stamps

Framed, Lovely Layers, Floral Bouquet, Honey Bee Stamps, shadow box, Die cut flowers, Sunflower, hydrangea,Easter Lily,Coneflower,Die Cutting, handmade, Gift idea, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, how to,

Hello, my friends and Happy Monday!

Today I am super excited to share with you this beautiful Framed Lovely Layers Floral Bouquet featuring many of the lovely layers dies from Honey Bee Stamps. I've had this idea since the sunflower die was released and was dying to make it. I have made many similar frames in the past, which I will share with you at the end of this post, but this time was the first time I used dies to create the flowers. 

If you love die-cutting, this project is for you. I made this over a period of two days. The first day I spent die-cutting and ink blending all the pieces. The second day was pretty much assembling and embellishing it. 

Here is a breakdown of how and what I used to put it all together.

FRAME RECIPE 


Dies:

Frame:
  • Square 9 ¾ " Frame from IKEA 
(The frame I used has been discontinued, the one I linked is very similar) 

Paper: 

  • Heavy Weight 110lbs Colored Cardstock


Ink for blending:

  •  Atelier Inks from Inkon3 (see links below)

Die Cut Machine:

Adhesives:

Embellishments:

Other Tools:

Once all the pieces were die-cut and inked up, I then assembled each flower individually using foam in between each layer. I then played with the arrangement until I came up with one I liked and took a photo of the design to guide me when it came time to glue it all down.

To the centers of the sunflowers, I added a layer of glue and dropped seed beads into the puddle. Once the area was dry I used a brown Copic marker to color the beads. To the top layer of the center, I added tiny drops of glossy accents and then added sparkle glitter over it. This adds some raised dimension and shine. For the coneflower centers, I used a glue pen and added tiny dots of glue, and then used the same glitter. I also used crystal drops to add details to the hydrangea centers and the Easter Lily.

The flowers were then glued to a piece of white cardstock that I had cut to fit the frame. Use foam tape to build up height where you feel it may be needed. I used about 4 layers of foam to raise the center sunflower. To finish off the bouquet I added a couple pieces of twirled cardstock to create some vine-looking greenery.

For additional shine, I painted the edges of some of the hydrangea flowers using liquid pixie dust.

I am in love with this frame and I hope you are too. Maybe it will even inspire you to create something similar for yourself!

Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting!
