Bake a Cookie Gift Card | Picket Fence Studios

Bake a Cookie, Gift Card, Picket Fence Studios, how to, handmade card, Stamps, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, stamping, die cutting, cardmaking, stencil,

Hello friends! 

I have another post to share with you today, this time featuring some new goodies from Picket Fence Studios and I think this one is pretty sweet ๐Ÿ˜‰ yes, pun intended. The simple technique I am sharing is a great way to give a gift card to someone and this fun Bake a Cookie A2 Layering Stencil Set makes the perfect backdrop to gift a sweet treat.

CARD RECIPE

To start, I used the bottom cookie layer stencil from the Bake a Cookie A2 Layering Stencil Set and applied a thin layer of Paper Glitz - Buttercream. While that layer was drying I stamped out the sentiment from the Lick the Bowl stamp set using white pigment ink that I then heat set with white embossing powder. I then trimmed out the sentiment strip with a paper trimmer.

Now back to the background, add the top layer of the cookies using the other stencil from the Bake a Cookie A2 Layering Stencil Set this time using Paper Glaze Luxe - Chocolate Frosting. Once that is dry it is time to assemble the card.

Add foam dots behind the sentiment strip, the width of the foam placement should match the width of the gift card, snug enough to secure the card in place, but not too tight that it is hard to remove it. Once that is figured out center it onto the card front and stick the strip in place. Snip off any excess paper that hangs off the edge of the card. I then added some gems to the strip for extra sparkle. Here is another look at the card without the gift card in place.

On the inside, I stamped another sentiment from the Lick the Bowl using a Black Hybrid Ink Pad.

Hello Friends,

This Anniversary card is all about the Layers! Absolutely love how easy it was and how it all came together. The finished card measures 6.5x5 inches. This release is not only great for Valentine's but all year round as the pieces are timeless.

CARD RECIPE

Embossed Heart - Floral Heart 3D Embossing Folder and Die Set

Frames - Lace Heart Layering Frames Dies

Sentiment base Die - Lovely Layouts: Posted - Dies

Patter Paper - Textiles and Texture Vintage Paper Pad

Sentiment - Mini Messages Stamps 

White Sentiment layer - Mini Messages Dies

Besides, die cutting and stamping the sentiment this card is not complicated at all. Like I said earlier, it is all about the layers.

The hardest part was embossing the large heart using the Floral Heart 3D Embossing Folder and then Die-cutting it with the coordinating heart. I then used the Bee Creative Brilliant White Pigment Ink and rubbed it over the embossed raised areas.

Welcome Back to Day 2 Sneak Peeks for the Honey Bee Stamps Vintage Love Release. The Vintage Love Release will go live on 1/31 after the Live Release Party on YouTube at 8 pm EST. So if you are wondering why the links do not work it is because they have not gone live yet!


My see-through Card today features the new Bold Backgrounds: Vintage Roses Dies. How gorgeous is this Die set! I absolutely love the texture and all the details!

To add somewhere to write on the card I used a couple of the Sweet Stacks Ovals. The smaller oval on the inside was stamped with a sentiment from the Lean On Each Other Stamps set, which also comes with coordinating dies. The larger oval was glued to the backside of the panel to cover up the glue marks.

To add some dimension to the flowers I ink-blended part of the petals of the flowers.

Bee Mine Valentine Card - with Felt Fridge Magnet | Honey Bee Stamps

Bee Mine, Valentine Card, Felt Fridge Magnet, Honey Bee Stamps, felt craft, stitching, how to,handmade card,lovedoingallthingscrafty,diecutting,cardmaking,Valentine's Day,
Hello Friends!

I am back today with the cutest Valentine's Card I have ever made, IMO๐Ÿ˜† If you love this bee as much as I do and need to have it, hurry and make sure to grab it now as it is RETIRING forever from the Honey Bee Stamp Shop as supplies are limited and for a great price too! ๐Ÿ‘‰Honey Bee Stitching Die 

CARD RECIPE

Felt Bee - Honey Bee Stitching Die - retiring soon!
Sentiment - Slimline Sentiments: Stitched Dies - retiring soon!
Embellishment - Sweethearts - Clay Hearts

As you can see the card is pretty basic. To create it I used one of the Stencils from the Fluttering Hearts Background Stencils and used pink ink to blend out the hearts. The sentiment is cut from black shiny cardstock using the Bee Mine Slimline Sentiments: Stitched Dies ๐Ÿ‘ˆalso RETIRING! For the dot of the "i", I used a clay heart.

To make the felt bee, I wanted it to have 2 wings and be finished on both sides. To do that I die-cut each piece x2 from felt. I then first stitched the yellow body layers and the white wing layers together leaving a tiny hole for stuffing later. I used yellow embroidery floss to create a Backstitch all the way around the body. (I ended up using the back side of the bee as I like how the backside of the backstitch looked. Usually, the back side is the messy stitched side). Before completing the Backstitch I added some stuffing between the middle layers. I then finished stitching the body using black embroidery floss to attach the black pieces. For the wings, I used white embroidery floss but used a Blanket Stitch

Next, I stitched some eyelashes in place before gluing on some black enamel dots for the eyes. For the antennae, I used a thin wire that I threaded through the top and just twisted it to stay in place. I then snipped the excess length and curled ends. Now for the cheeks, I applied some pink ink using a shader brush, then added a white dot to the center using a gel pen.

To the backside of the bee, I used hot glue to attach a magnet to it. Once it is completely dry,  attach it to the card base by using another magnet to secure it in place on the inside of the card. For fun and a little magic, watch the bee move by sliding around the inside magnet!

Obviously, this card will not fit into an envelope. To solve this problem and keep the felt clean, I will store it and gift it in an A7 cello bag.


I hope this darling Felt Bee has inspired you to think out of the box when it comes to cardmaking! I love how this Bee Mine Valentine - Felt Fridge Magnet Card turned out and I hope my Valentine will too ๐Ÿ˜‰For those of you following me on Instagram, stay tuned for a Reel coming soon!


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