Simple Elements | Honey Bee Stamps

I rarely, rarely use pattern paper because I find most very busy but I’ve really fallen in love with Honey Bee Stamps’ pattern paper pad. The patterns are nice and simple; perfect for a background for cards that won’t take away the focus from your main elements.

Puppy Love

Happy Monday everyone! To start off the week, I’m sharing three cards created using the die set from i-Crafter called Puppy Love.

All my supplies for creating this card will be listed down below (with multiple sources when available) for your curiosity and convenience. Affiliate links used when possible.

These cards were super easy peasy! I die cut the three doggies from the stamped images from the die set Puppy Love and then colored them up using copic markers. I decided because of their size that they had to be their own star of the show so I wanted to use one for each card. For the background, I did quick ink blending using Honey Bee Stamps Whimsical Hearts stencil with Speckled Egg and Kitsch Flamingo.

For my first card, I used the sentiment from the Happy Birthday Wiper Insert and added some of the die accessories for the dog. It looks like he’s eyeing that bone doesn’t he?

For this second card, I thought it was so cute that he looked like he was walking, so I used the Thanks from the Pop Up Wiper Insert and placed it in parallel to the doggie.

Lastly, for my final card. I used the corgi who is probably my favorite. He looks so happy! I used the large Hello from Hello Flower right at his feet.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

Die Cut Tropical Card

Happy Friday-eve! Today, I’m sharing a card featuring a bunch of Erin Lee Creative products, which ended up with an unintentional tropical card.

 

All my supplies for creating this card will be listed down below (with multiple sources when available) for your curiosity and convenience. Affiliate links used when possible. 

I went into this card because I had just learned that you could use alcohol inks on Erin Lee Creative’s Glossy White cardstock so I just wanted to play around to see how it would turn out. I wanted to keep it pretty simple so I just used Pool alcohol ink with some Gold Mixative along with the Blender for a very simple alcohol mix. It does move a little differently compared to Yupo paper but it works really well. I used that panel to cut out the main sentiment using the Jumbo Hi die. It’s generally pretty subtle but I thought it was really pretty, adding something special to the sentiment since there’s a good amount of space for the texture on this sentiment.

For the rest of the card, I used three of the dies from the Birdhouse Builder die set. Using copic markers, I added color onto it because I wanted the texture on them. Of course, you could just easily cut them out using different colored cardstock but I had my markers out so I figured why not. I placed the sentiments and the die cuts on a piece of A2 Glossy Black cardstock. Oh my! This is so fun to play with because it’s so dark and made my sentiment and florals REALLY pop.

To finish off this card, I used a few embellishments from Trinity Stamps (which are no longer in the shop, but you can use any ones you have in your stash) to fill up the empty space and I love the final product.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

Die Cut Card with Leftover Scraps

Happy Friday-eve! Today, I’m sharing a card I created using some leftover scraps from a previous project. In that project, I had used Mama Elephant Quick Stripes dies to cut out a bunch of colorful stripes. Of course, I had a bunch of them leftover so I decided to use it to create a quick die cut card with an i-Crafter Box Pops Flowers die.

All my supplies for creating this card will be listed down below (with multiple sources when available) for your curiosity and convenience. Affiliate links used when possible.

I used the flower die in this set along with the solid coordinating die from the i-Crafter Box Pops Flowers set, cutting the flower out of white cardstock and the solid die out of black cardstock. I trimmed down the white flower outline removing the stem so it would be a standalone floral.

Using Hero Arts Precision Glue, I just added the leftover stripes from the Quick Stripes set to an A2 card white card panel in varying lengths allowing a nice pop of color for the background concentrated on the left hand side. I took the Thanks sentiment from the i-Crafter’s Pop Up Wiper Insert and added it as the sentiment. I took the florals I put together from the i-Crafter Box Pops Flowers set and decorated them on top of the stripes.

Isn’t it such a fun card? You can use any dies in your craft stash to create this easy card! Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

Happee Birthdae Muggle

Hi everyone! It’s Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) on the blog today with Trinity Stamps sharing a card using a bunch of older stamp sets (and some of my very favorites): Magical Wizards, Wizard Friends, Happee Birthdae, and Potions Master along with the Castle Builder Die Set and Hip to be Square

I had this idea in my head and I wanted to create a fun card that kinda reflected our zoom calls of late. For my main card panel, I stamped and heat embossed the little envelope with gold embossing powder which can be found in the Magical Wizards stamp set. Then, I pulled out the Hip to be Square die set, which is a slimline die but I wanted to use it in another way for this A2 card. 

I pulled out Magical Wizards, Wizard Friends, Happee Birthdae, and Potions Master so I could stamp all the different characters on the little squares that are cut out from the Hip to be Square die. Since the characters will take up 9 squares, I filled up the rest of them with potions from the Potions Master stamp set. 

To finish off the card, I used die cuts from the Castle Builder Die Set to decorate the top an bottom of the card. 

For the sentiment, I used the sentiment from Happee Birthdae on a two strips of white paper. 

I’m so happy with how this card turned out and I just love it so much so I hope you do too!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Come back again soon for more inspiration and ideas! Happy Crafting! 

Erin Lee Creative’s Shine Bright Kit

Happy Friday everyone! TGIF! I am so excited to share this card with you today — I think it’s one of my favorite cards I’ve made in a really long time. It features some items from the newest kit from Erin Lee Creative and this one is a stunner!

All my supplies for creating this card will be listed down below (with multiple sources when available) for your curiosity and convenience. Affiliate links used when possible. 

I had an idea that involved playing with the ever so popular holographic cardstock sold in her store and changing the color of it by using some inks. First, I die cut the rainbow using one of the dies that comes in the Shine Bright kit with holographic cardstock. Then, I used a rainbow array of colors from Ink on 3: Marilyn Red, Marigold Orange, Goddess Green, Peacock Blue and My Jam Purple. I pounced on the color for each rainbow stripe using a blending tool. To trap the color, I added Glossy Accents on top of each stripe separately and let them dry. Not only does it trap the color, it adds dimension to each of the rainbow stripes.

I went ahead and used that same Rainbow die to cut out the clouds out of white cardstock. I used some copic markers to add a bit of dimension to them.Also, in the kit, it has a standalone die and shadow for the No Bad Days sentiment. I cut out the words from holographic cardstock and the shadow from vellum.

For my background panel, I used one of the sun ray stencils in the kit. There’s two that can be used to layer on top of each other so you’d have two different rays of colors. For my card, I decided only to use one with Ink on 3’s Liquid Pixie dust on black cardstock. Since it’s on dark cardstock, you won’t see it until it hits the light and adds that extra bling to any card.

I absolutely love this card and the kit that I used to create it. It’s so fun and I think it’s totally worth it! I’ll be sharing additional ideas in the coming weeks using this kit as well. I’m also participating in the Shine Bright instagram hop so if you want to see more wonderful ideas, please stop by here.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

Colorful & Bright Sentiment Focused Cards

Welcome to the weekend crafty friends! Today, I’m sharing a set of cards featuring Pigment Craft Co.’s stamp set named, Dashing Sentiments along with their Dashing Sentiments coordinating die set. 

All my supplies for creating this card will be listed down below (with multiple sources when available) for your curiosity and convenience. Affiliate links used when possible. 

I actually started out by cutting out a ton of strips using the Mama Elephant Sentiment Strips out of a bunch of different colored cardstocks and used Stick it adhesive to adhere them to a piece of copy paper. I then stamped the Pigment Craft Co.’s Dashing Sentiments on the striped paper using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Artic White embossing powder. Using the coordinating dies cuts, I cut them all out. I love these die cuts because I think they are so unique!

For my main card panel, I used those cut strips and trimmed them down even further and adhered them in a easy pattern. For my sentiments, I wanted to use a dark grey cardstock so it would help the sentiments pop. I also wanted to have a very subtle design on it so I decided to use Trinity Stamps A2 Quilted Coverplate die. The die cuts a quilted pattern and leaves empty the area of intersection (because there are coordinating stencils to go with it). I decide to not use the coordinating stencils and replaced them with a variety of embellishments to add a bit of bling to the card.

I just love how these turned out and honestly am so excited that I found this crafty company. I can’t wait to see their future products!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!

3 Easy Die Cut Designs

Hi everyone! Ok, I’ve been really bad with keeping up with doing blog posts but I’m trying to get back into it.

Today, I’m really excited to be a guest designer for i-crafter today. I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to share my creations with you! For today’s blog post, I actually ended up creating three different cards showing off three different designs using the dies from the Box Pops, Flower Add On set. The possibilities are really endless! 

YouTube process video; supply list used for this proect is listed at end of blog.

For my first card, I used the leafy die, which was so perfect for a simple frame design. I quickly used watercolors for the background and added some splatter. While die cutting the leafy die, I also took the interior bits and ink blended them with similar colors and did some die inlay. 

To finish off this card, I used the “hello” sentiment from the Hello Flower die set in black. The leafy die cuts really make that sentiment pop! 

For my second card, I thought I would use this really pretty, intricate floral die to create a circular design. Once I die cut 8 of these florals, I inked them up quickly. For the sentiment, I used the sentiment from the Happy Birthday Wiper Insert and inked them up using the same colors for the florals while creating an ombre effect. 

To really have the florals pop, I put them up on kraft cardstock and thought they colors went so well together. The coordinating sentiment really tied together the entire card. 

For my third card, I decided to use a slimline design and again only used one die for this particular card. 

I took some watercolors and quickly created a rainbow background and placed each die cut in each color section. 

This is one of those designs that can be quickly created for a simple and elegant card. To finish off this card, I used the smaller hello in the Flip Card Dashed Circle die set and actually used a gold pen to give it a bit of elegance. 

I really loved how all these cards turned and hopefully, these examples gave you some ideas for the endless possibilities of this Box Pops, Flower Add On die set. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a crafty day!

You are Loved!

Hi everyone! I’m off to Creativation for the weekend but I wanted to share this fun card with you today. I actually starting making this card with an idea in mind, however, that didn’t work out and I ended up with this instead. Sometimes (a lot of times) this happens and I figured it out regardless.

I was inspired by Simon Says Stamp’s instagram challenge of “something new” and I went with new techniques along with new items in my crafty stash.

I’ve play with alcohol markers before but I never really got the foiling to work for me. I wanted to try it again after seeing a few photos on instagram, I was inspired.

I used a piece of yupo paper along with a few alcohol inks. I wanted to go with monotone colors around pink and red since I had stamp images that were Valentine-esque. I used the following colors: Pink Sherbet, Purple Twilight, and the Pearl alcohol ink, Intrique, along with the Ink Blending Solution.

Let me say this outright: I am never happy with how the alcohol inks turn out. NEVER. I will keep playing with it again and again until I’m semi-satisfied. Even with this piece, I was not particularly stunned by it at all and I only stopped playing with it because I didn’t want to overwork it.

After a little bit of time, I added some Minc rose gold foil to the yupo paper. The foil stuck with the wet areas of the alcohol inks and this is where the magical happens. My panel that I was not so happy with, was gorgeous! Of course, there are some pieces that I wish stuck with foil but I was pretty happy with it. The only problem with this was that the original images that I planned to use with it, would not work with it because the background was too bold and busy.

I dug further into my recent purchases and remembered I had the Simon Says Stamp You are Loved die and this was perfect for it. I die cut the image out three times and stacked them. Additionally, I die cut the border image out of vellum so the sentiment would be the focal point. This worked out perfectly so I placed it on the bottom left hand corner and finished it off with some embellishments.

I hope you get inspired to create! 

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon!
