Beez On The Move

Hey Y'all!!!  LOVE LOVE LOVE all the bees at Honey Bee Stamps.  These beautiful sunflowers and bees are from the Happy Fall Yall stamp set.  I know it's not fall yet but the sunflowers are just so pretty any time of year.  My little bee slides around the card effortlessly thanks to Whimsy Stamps Kinetic dies.  Give them a try!  This beautiful card is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

I started by coloring this cute little bee and the beautiful sunflowers from Honey Bee Stamps ‘Happy Fall Y ‘all‘ Stamp Set.  There's a matching die too and you can find it HERE.

 

COPIC MARKERS:

• Sunflowers (YR27, YR24, YR23, Y38, Y19, Y15)

• Leaves (YG99, YG97, YG95, YG93)

• Bee (Y17 , Y13, Y11, N9, N7, N5, BG15, BG10)

 

 

The card base is made out of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic Black‘ card stock.  The yellow layer was cut from Stampin' UP!'s ‘Bumblebee‘ card stock and cut with Honey Bee Stamps ‘Deckle Edge‘ dies.  Love the fun and wonky edges.  The patterned layer was cut from Honey Bee Stamps ‘The Bee's Knees‘ 6 x 6 paper pack.  I used a smaller die from the same Honey Bee Stamps ‘Deckle Edge‘ to cut this piece as well.

 

 

Whimsy Stamps makes the slider die I used to allow the bee to slide across the card just by moving the card back and forth.  How cute!

 

Isn't he The Bee's Knees!

Make The Cards Challenge Week #18 – Two Things

Hey Y'all!!!  I'm back with the Make The Cards Challenge Week #18.  This week we are featuring a color challenge called Two Things.  You have to use a stenciled background and a die cut sentiment.  Love the way Oxide Inks make such beautiful backgrounds.  Love Sweet Sentiments Earth Mandala stencil and Whimsy Stamps Thanks Word & Shadow die.  This beautiful card is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

 

I started by using Sweet Sentiment's ‘Earth Mandala Stencil' and Distress Oxide inks to create the beautiful background on Sweet Sentiments ‘Premium Coloring Paper‘.

 

Distress Oxide Colors:

• Spun Sugar

• Worn Lipstick

• Festive Berries

• Picked Raspberry

 

 

The card base is made out of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Flirty Flamingo‘ card stock.  I cut a piece of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘ card stock for a layer between the card base and the colorful stenciled piece.   I used two of the dies from Whimsy Stamps ‘Thanks‘ die set for the sentiment.

 

Beautiful way to say Thanks.

Live Like Someone Left The Gate Open

Hey Y'all!!!  Do your pigs & horses have spots?  Mine do!  And you know I love bright colors. Wouldn't you love to see a bright green horse with spots??  We should all ‘Live like someone left the gate open'.  My wish for you is that you are able to go out and enjoy life outside after this crazy year we've all had.  Enjoy the sunshine and warm weather.  Be happy!  This beautiful card is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

I started by coloring the ‘Oddball Farm Animals‘ stamps set from Stamping Bella.  They are colored on Sweet Sentiments ‘Premium Coloring Paper‘.

 

COPIC MARKERS:

• Pig (RV09, RV06, RV04, T2, T0)

• Cow (BG49, BG05, BG01, E47, E44, E43, Y28, Y26, T2, T0)

• Horse (YG09, HG05, YG01, E47, E44, E43, E79, E74, E71, T1, T0)

• Grass – YG67, YG17, YG03)

 

 

The card base is Stampin' UP!'s ‘Melon Mambo‘ card stock.  I colored the grass & hills with Copic Markers.

 

I cut a piece of scrap paper with one of the cloud dies from Whimsy Stamps ‘Grass Cloud Edger‘ dies.  I used it as a template to create the beautiful Distress Oxide Spiced Balmy Blue clouds on a piece of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘ card stock size 5 x 3 3/4.

 

 

I used a retired stamp set from Rubbernecker Stamps for the tree & fence.  Sometimes you've just got to use things you love even if they are retired.

 

The sentiment is from Stamping Bella's ‘Down On The Farm' Sentiment Set.  So fun!

 

Live like someone left the gate open my friends!

You’re Out Of This World

Hey Y'all!!!  These buildings remind me of the houses and buildings in Bermuda.  They are so vibrant and beautiful.  Also a fun way to tell someone you know how fabulous they are.  Love the Slimline Cityscape dies from Whimsy Stamps.  This beautiful card is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

I started by cutting these fun little cityscape buildings using Whimsy Stamps ‘Slimline Cityscape‘ dies.  I cut two full sets.  I used the long slender die for the road to cut the bottom edge of the Cityscape buildings.

 

 

Used Distress Oxide Inks to color them.   Love the ‘Cotton Tail Blending Brushes‘ from The Rabbit Hole Designs.  So smooth and effortless with inks.

 

Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry

Distress Oxide Speckled Egg

Distress Oxide Salty Ocean

Distress Oxide Spiced Marmalade

Distress Oxide Twisted Citron

Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber

 

The card base is Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘ card stock.  I cut a piece of retired Whimsy Stamps paper for the back layer.  It has so many colors and matched the buildings perfectly.

I cut a piece of scrap paper with one of the cloud dies from Whimsy Stamps ‘Grass Cloud Edger‘ dies.  I used it as a template to create the beautiful Distress Oxide Spiced Marmalade clouds on a piece of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘ card stock size 5 x 3 3/4.

 

 

I also used Whimsy Stamps ‘Grass Cloud Edger‘ dies to create several pieces of grass and colored them with Distress Oxide Mowed Lawn.

 

I alternated layers of cityscape buildings and grass to create the fun building groups.  Finished the card with a cute sentiment from Whimsy Stamps ‘A Boys Dream‘ stamp set.  Colored the background with Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry and cut it out with one of Whimsy Stamps ‘Quick Strips‘ dies.

 

 

You're Out Of This World!

I started by coloring a beautiful rainbow in the background with Stampin' UP! inks.

Love the ‘Cotton Tail Blending Brushes‘ from The Rabbit Hole Designs.  So smooth and effortless with inks.

Stampin' UP! Daffodil Delight

Stampin' UP! Pumpkin Pie

Stampin' UP! Gorgeous Grape

The frames were cut with Lawn Fawn ‘Stitched Rectangle Frames' dies.  Beautiful stitching right down the center of the frame.  The sun and clouds were cut from La-La Land Crafts ‘Sun & Cloud' dies.  So fun with their beautiful stitching.

 

 

The sentiment is from Spellbinders ‘Cute Boots‘ Stamp Set.  Stamped in black ink and cut out with oval punch.

 

Sun and rain together.  There has to be a rainbow somewhere!

Make The Cards Challenge Week #17 – Color Challenge Citrus

Hey Y'all!!!  I'm back with the Make The Cards Challenge Week #17.  This week we are featuring a color challenge called Citrus.  You know I just LOVE Dudley from Whimsy Stamps.  Couldn't resist a chance to color him up with crazy colors.  I'd love it if he'd serve me up some birfday cake, wouldn't you?  This beautiful card is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

I started by coloring the ‘Birfday Dragons‘ stamps set from Whimsy Stamps.  He's colored on Sweet Sentiments ‘Premium Coloring Paper‘.

 

COPIC MARKERS:

• Dudley The Dragon (YR16, YR14, YR21, Y08, Y06, Y02, YG67, YG17, YG09, YG05, YG03, E09, E08, E04, B0000, B000)

 

The card base is made out of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Garden Green‘ card stock.  The background layer is cut from Whimsy Stamps ‘Cosmic' 6 x 6 paper pack.  So sorry this paper has been discontinued because I love the bursts of color.  I cut the background with the largest of the Whimsy Stamps ‘Extreme Postage‘ dies.  Love love love the edge.  I cut a piece of Whimsy Stamps ‘Rainbow‘ 6 x 6 paper pack with their ‘Connected Rectangle‘ die.

 

The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps ‘Birfday Dragons‘ stamps set.  Several fun sentiments.  I cut one sentiment out using one of the whimsical square shapes from Whimsy Stamps ‘Peekaboo Window 4‘ die and the other using Whimsy Stamps ‘Quick Strips‘ dies.  I use the strips a lot.  Perfect for lots of sentiments!

 

 

Finished the card off with some fun enamel dots.

My Beautiful Solarium

Hey Y'all!!!  So excited to showcase another a beautiful card as part of the Design Team for Scrappy Tails Crafts.  Today it's all about dies and again, minimal coloring involved.  Did I say I was obsessed with these Bay Window templates.  It actually folds flat and fits perfectly inside an envelope for mailing.  This beautiful folding vase is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

I am absolutely obsessed with these bay window cards.  So fun.  So easy.  I just can't seem to get enough.

 

I started by cutting out the bay window base pieces from Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘ card stock.

The two base pieces are 5″ x 7″.  The front piece is scored at 1/2″, 2 1/2, 4 1/2 & 6 1/2.

 

 

I cut a stencil using Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Slimline Brick Background‘ die and used it to color each one of the three front sections of the ‘bay windows'.

 

I used Barn Door Distress Oxide and those fabulous ‘Cotton Tail Blending Brushes‘ from The Rabbit Hole Designs.  So smooth and effortless for Distress Oxide Inks.  I used some scrap pieces to mask the bay window and keep the brick image inside each section.

 

 

Next I cut windows inside each of the bays using Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Slimline Neighborhood House‘ dies.  So many fun windows & doors.  I love the top curves on all the windows I cut.  I used the same dies to cut the windows out of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘ card stock and glued clear window sheets behind the window openings in order to glue the white window frames in place.

 

 

For the inside of the card, in what I'm calling the Solarium, I cut lots of leaf shapes and butterflies from Scrappy Tail Crafts ‘Leaf Assortment‘, ‘Sitting Butterflies‘, and ‘Open Butterflies‘ dies.  I used Distress Oxide ‘Broken China', ‘Salty Ocean', ‘Shaded Lilac' and ‘Seedless Preserves' to color the butterflies and glued them all to the inside of the card on top of a piece of beautiful printed paper full of folliage.  I also glued a few stems and a single butterfly to the outside where the card inserts to sit on a table.

 

 

The right side of the front of the card just tucks inside the green strip down the right side.  You can just pull it out and it lays flat for mailing.   I'm working on a video for my YouTube Channel.

 

If I actually had a Solarium in my house I think it would look just like this card?

Sweet Peonies

Hey Y'all!!!  What beautiful peonies created with a fun die from Whimsy Stamps.  Wouldn't you love them growing in your back yard.  Sweet!  This beautiful card is available in my Etsy store HERE!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).

 

 

What a pretty card and so simple to make.  No coloring.  Just paper and dies.  How easy can that be.

 

The card base is made out of Stampin' UP!'s ‘Basic White‘ card stock.  The background layer is from a fun paper pack called ‘Fabulous Florals‘ from Whimsy Stamps.  Such beautiful patterns.

 

 

I used the ‘Peony Flower' dies from Whimsy Stamps to cut three beautiful Peonies and leaves.  They are cut from Stampin' UP!'s ‘Gorgeous Grape', ‘Magenta Madness‘, ‘Crushed Curry‘ & ‘Old Olive‘ card stocks.  Used some retired brads for the centers and rolled them up for a little dimension.  The sweet sentiment was cut using the ‘Sweet Word With Shadow' dies from Whimsy Stamps.  Used the same card stock to match the beautiful Peonies.

 

Beautiful Peonies!  Sweet card!

Hey Y'all!!!  Fakery is afoot at Lollipots.  How about these fun lemonade ice cream sandwiches.  So bright and cute.  They look good enough to just take a big bite out of.  But DON'T.  It's all FAKE.  Would look great on your tiered trays or as a decoration for a party!  Etsy shop link in my bio.  ~Teresa
