Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I have a sweet card to share with you using the Honey Bear Stamp and die set from Krista Schneider. Below you will find the steps to make your own card… Just Bee-Cause. 🙂
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)
Step 2 – Stamp Honey Bear images on White Soft Finish Cardstock using Amalgam Ink. Color images using alcohol markers. Diecut images with matching dies.
Step 3 – Diecut Garden Notes – Frame It – Stitched Ovals using White Soft Finish Cardstock, then 1 die smaller using Dark Chocolate Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere the branch and bear image slightly under the Dark Chocolate Cardstock. Adhere the panels to the card front Dark Chocolate first and then White using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Adhere the bees and butterfly.
Step 4 – Stamp Bee Sentiment Clear Stamp to the card front.
This card can be used for many occasions by changing the sentiment and colors. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day. Just Bee-Cause!
Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I have a final tutorial to share with you for the Christmas Holidays. It is super easy to do for any of those last-minute cards you might need to make. It uses the Christmas Kids Clear Stamps and Dies by Krista Schneider. Here are instructions so you can make your own Winter Blessings Card.
Welcome – it’s Samantha, back again sharing one of my favourite ways to create with background stamps. I think background stamps are undervalued in my craft room. I have a rather large collection but hardly use them outside their main intended purpose as a background stamp. For today’s card I want to share a simple and effective way to create a focal point using a background stamp.
It’s time for June’s Sunday Stamping with Hedgehog Hollow. It’s amazing to think I have been doing Sunday Stamping for over a year now (thanks, TimeHop!). I love playing with my Elizabeth Craft Designs goodies each month and having a blog post scheduled always gives me a push to challenge myself to come up with something new.
I hope you all having a wonderful Sunday. We are definitely seeing some signs of summer in Ohio although we seemed to have skipped spring. With summer comes wedding season! We don’t have any this year, but we do have our wedding anniversary coming on Tuesday so I’m certainly feeling in the mood! Today I have a really quick and easy wedding card for you, and I love the touch of elegance it has, plus you can customize the base depending on the color theme of the wedding….
Celebration is not a specific human phenomenon. The fluttering birds, the dancing leaves, the sprinkling droplets of water, the dance of the animals, the roar of clouds, even the inconsequential insects find reasons to celebrate. God has however, given us, humans, a much larger proportion of reasons to rejoice our existence, our civilized bondings, our togetherness and our victories.
In the urban changing lifestyles fraught with stress and pressures, we should find every reason to get together with our loved ones and celebrate our special moments and our smallest of victories. My creation today is a thematic card dedicated to the spirit of celebrations on each such small occasion. Let’s all ease out our burdens and strains and join our loved ones for such celebrations… Cheers!!!!
“My heart never knew loneliness… until you went away…”
In this age of faster communications, the Internet, messaging apps and social media platforms, it is easy to be connected to the people we love. But the fact remains that showing emotions has always been difficult, even with all of these new modes of communication.
Today I bring to you a lovely hand-crafted card that is a unique way to send a heartfelt message.
I have used the dahlia flower as the central theme. The dahlia is a symbol of inner strength, creativity and standing strong in your sacred values. Dahlia flowers also symbolize a commitment and bond that lasts forever, just like the bond of friendship with the one for whom you are creating this special project.
DT Melanie here with you today to share a fun card made from our Ribbons 1 die set by Els van de Burgt Studio. I decided to get out my Distress Oxide Inks and play with the pieces created from die cutting the ribbon 1 dies from the card front.
“A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different…
It doesn’t have to. Its different…”
These lines from America’s celebrated spiritual teacher and author Marianne Williamson describes the spirit of the Tulip flower. Tulips have been known since centuries as the symbol of perfect endearing love between partners or family members.
Today I dedicate this card to the bonhomie I share with a childhood friend of mine whom I have connected with after almost 30 years. I have used Yellow tulips in this card as they mean “there’s a sunshine in your smile”. Yellow tulip is a great medium to express affection and care for your friends and loved ones. I dedicate this card not only to my friend but also all my fellow designers as a mark of warmth and camaraderie I share with each one of you.
