Hello, my friends, and Happy Monday!

It's time again for another Honey Bee Stamps Release, and today the Design Team is showcasing Day 1 Sneak Peeks for their Vintage Holiday Release.

This Snowman Winter Shaker Shadow Box is jam-packed with all-new goodies. Can you spot all the new stamps and dies? Don't worry I give you the complete recipe for this card down below. What I am really excited about is the A2 Scene Builder Card Base Dies. The possibilities are endless for shadow box creations with these Dies.


Make sure you stop by the Honey Bee Stamps Blog for more inspiration from the Design Team featuring more day 1 product reveals! Please note that  links will not be active until the Release goes live on October 14th, 2021 @9pm CST.

For an added layer of fun, I thought it would be cool to add a shaker element to this winter scene. To create that I simply created a shaker pocket using a cello bag that I filled with some Bokeh Lights Confetti. I sealed the edges of the pocket with a thin double-sided tape and then secured it behind the front window opening of the card base.

The coolest thing about these shadow boxes is that they fold flat and fit perfectly inside an A2 Envelope. This card when flat has a little bulge in it because I can't help myself and add way too many elements but I am still able to seal the envelope without any problems.

Also, check out the snowflakes I used in the background aren't they gorgeous! I love them!!! They were made with the Pierced Fancy Flakes A2 Cover Plate Die and the Fancy Flakes A2 Cover Plate Die that I trimmed down to create the background.

Well, that wraps it up for Day 1 sneak peeks from me. Thank you for stopping by and I will see you back here tomorrow for day 2 sneak peeks... Happy Crafting!

Framed White Sunflower Shadow Box | Honey Bee Stamps

Hello and happy Monday crafty friends!

First of all, I would like to thank all of you that left me the sweetest comments and messages over on my Instagram in regards to the last Framed Lovely Layers Floral Bouquet I made. This beauty is now in Jennifer McGuire's craft room and I could not be happier about that!

Today's project was made for a friend and colleague of mine (hi TominaπŸ‘‹) who asked me to make a White Sunflower shadow box for her after she saw the White Sunflower Slimline card I made. 

Here is how this beautiful frame came together.

FRAME RECIPE


Dies:
Paper: 
  • Cream, green and brown heavyweight Colored Cardstock
Frame:
  • Square 9 ¾ " Shadow Frame from IKEA (The frame I used has been discontinued, the one I linked is very similar)
Ink:

Die Cut Machine:

Adhesives:

Embellishments:

Other Tools:

Once you have put one of these flowers together, then the rest is simple. It is just a repetitive process.

  1. The first thing I did was cut all the layers for the 8 sunflowers I needed to form the shape of a heart. 
  2. I then ink blended up the centers of the flowers. 
  3. Curled the flower petals.
  4. Added foam to each layer of the flower to build up the petals and create dimension.
  5. To the centers, add a layer of glue to the bottom layer. 
  6. Drop the seed beads into the glue (I tried having the hole of the beads face up). Once the glue dried, I used a brown Copic Marker to color the center brown.
  7. To the top of the center, add small drops of glossy accents. While still wet sprinkle with Sparkle Glitter and piece the centers together.
  8. Glue centers to the flower petals.

Arrange the flowers how you like. Once you have that figured out, glue it to the paper background of the frame. Use foam to pop up some of the flowers in place. Finish by gluing the leaves in place.

I love how this White Sunflower Shadow Box frame turned out, and I hope you can see from this example that you do not need all the flowers to create something beautiful! 

Want to watch a quick video of how this came together.

Rainbow Butterflies Slimline Card | Studio Katia

ink blending,Butterflies,card,copic markers,rainbow,DOTTED SLIMLINE SET 3,Studio Katia,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Hello sweet friends!

Today I have a rainbow-inspired slimline Butterfly card to share with you. As you may already know by now, my favorite color is rainbow because I love all of them, lol! So if you can't decide like me, always chose rainbow... they just make for the happiest of cards. 🌈😊

My cards today feature some of the newest products from Studio Katia. 

CARD RECIPE

Here is a breakdown of what I used and where.



Let me explain some parts.

For the background, I used three colors of ink to blend out the rainbow. I then trimmed the panel and popped it behind the new DOTTED SLIMLINE SET 3 die.

For the butterflies, I stamped the butterflies using Blackout Ink on both white cardstock and vellum. I then used 3 colors of Copic markers (pink, yellow, and blue) to blend out the rainbow colors over the entire butterfly image. As you can see I was not careful to stay in the lines. It really was about adding a quick color. For each butterfly, I just moved the markers in different directions overlapping the colors in between to give create the rainbow blend. I repeated the same thing to the vellum butterflies only this time I colored the underside of the vellum making sure I colored them in the same pattern as the coordinating paper layer.

Once the butterflies were colored I then added a thin layer of glue using a glue pen (sorry forgot to link below) to the top of the vellum wings. Once they were dry I then bent and curled the wings and glued the bodies together and added them to the card front.

The sentiment was stamped and heat-embossed onto a banner from the PEONY TRIMMINGS DIES.

Here is a closer look at the gorgeous sparkle on the wings. I am a bit obsessed with SPARKLE GLITTER!

I then just finished this Rainbow Butterflies Slimline card by dropping some coordinating pearls into the die-cut holes of the card panel.

I hope this rainbow creation inspired you. Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting!
