Another great add-on dieset from Honey Bee Stamps! The Farmhouse Add-on Dies and Stampset coordinate with the House Builder Card Base Dies and allow you to make lots of cute cards. The last card I made was very patriotic but for this one I decided to make a more traditional farmhouse which can be used for any occasion.

For this card, I started by diecutting the house card base 2x with the House Builder Card Base Dies from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″. I adhered the two houses with the pre-scored strip that comes in the House Builder Card Base Dies to create the card base. Be sure to use double-sided tape or something very strong so they don’t come apart.

Then die cut the roof and window awnings from both Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and Stampin’ Up! Melon Mambo 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock from the Honey Bee Stamps Treat Shop Add-On Dies. I cut out every other strip on the awnings and adhered them to the white one to create a cute striped awning. I diecut out the windows from the front of the card.

I diecut the door from some Stampin’ Up! Chocolate Chip 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock (discontinued) and Stampin’ Up! Pool Party 8.5 x 11″ Cardstock and the steps from Simon Says Stamp Card Stock 100# FOG Gray Cardstock with the Honey Bee Stamps Farmhouse Add-On Dies.

I stamped images from the Honey Bee Stamps Treat Shop Add-On 6×6 Stamp Set onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used Y17, BG01, R09, and E29 for the banners; BG000 and 0 for the glass display case and cake display; C3 and C5 for the cake base, RV06, RV09, and RV21 for the three tier cake, and E25, E29 and E49 for the heart on the cake. RV06 and RV09, E24 and E29, Y13 and Y17, and C1 and C3 for the cupcakes; YG05 and YG17 for the bush and E24, E29 and E49 for the planter. C1 and C3 for the bakery and specials signs and the table; Y13 and Y17, BG000 and BG01, RV06 and RV21 for the balloons; and BG000 and BG01, RV06, RV09 and RV21 for the umbrella.

I used direct-to-paper technique with Stampin’ Up! Magenta Madness, Mango Melody and Pool Party Inks onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and diecut the flowers from the from the Honey Bee Stamps Treat Shop Add-On Dies and adhered them to the building.

I finished off the card by adding some Tonic Liquid Mercury Nuvo Crystal Drops for the door knob and Tonic IVORY SEASHELL Nuvo Crystal Drops to the flower centers.

Easy to Mass Produce Masculine Cards featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business

Hi friends! As promised, here a few more masculine card ideas using Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business Stamp Set. These can be easily mass produced and are great for birthdays, Father’s Day or any celebration.

For the first card, I used Stampin’ Up! Old Olive 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock cut to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make the card base and a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ cut to 4 x 5-1/4″.

I stamped 3 glass images and one curly rind from Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business Stamp Set onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. A tip for mass producing this card is do everything in steps (cut all your cardstock, then all the stamping etc). I used BG000 + 0 for the glass, YR16 + YR21 + YR23 for the whiskey and YR16 + YR27 for the rind.

I stamped a sentiment from the Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business Stamp Set onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Old Olive Ink and trimmed it to 3/4 x 2-3/4″ and adhered that to a piece of Stampin’ Up!

Dimensions


For the second card, I followed the same steps but used Stampin’ Up! Early Espresso 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock for the card base and stamped the curly rind with So Saffron Ink to create the background.

I used Stampin’ Up! Coastal Cabana 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock for the border and stamped the woodgrain border with Coastal Cabana Ink.

The glass images were stamped and colored the same as before. And I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business Stamp Set with Early Espresso Ink. I backed the sentiment strip with Stampin’ Up! So Saffron 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock.

On the inside, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4 x 5-1/4″, adhered it to the card and stamped a sentiment from Stampin’ Up!’s Well Said Stamp Set (retired) with Coastal Cabana Ink and glasses from Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business Stamp Set with Early Espresso Ink.

An Old Fashioned Birthday Card featuring Stampin’ Up!’s Whiskey Business

Hi everyone! Need an easy masculine card or for someone who loves a good old fashioned adult beverage??? Well have I got some cards for you! This post features one pretty quick and simple card. More cards to come… stay tuned.

For this card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2” and scored at 4-1/2″ to make a card base and diecut a 3-3/4″circle from Balmy Blue 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock using the Sizzix Framelits Die Set 8/PK – Circles. Then embossed it with the Stampin’ Up! Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder (discontinued). Any woodgrain embossing folder will do here.

I distressed it with Stampin’ Up! Balmy Blue and Soft Suede Inks and adhered it to the card base. Next I stamped the decanter, two glasses and one rind images from the Stampin’ Up! Whiskey Business Cling Stamp Set with Versamark Ink and added Ranger Gold Embossing Powder.

I used Copic Markers to color the images. Be very careful with the tips of your markers as embossing powder will get stuck to it. You have to keep rubbing it off as you color so as not to ruin your nibs. I used B0000 + 0 for the glasses and decanter, YR21, YR23 and YR27 for the liquid.

I fussycut the images and adhered them to the card, adding Stampin’ Dimensionals to the one glass. Next, I stamped the sentiment onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ from the Stampin’ Up! Whiskey Business Cling Stamp Set with Soft Suede Ink and cut it to 1 x 2-7/8” and adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I finished it off by adding Ranger Glossy Accents to the decanter and glasses and some Nuvo Drops in Metallic Bright Gold.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from Biggest Wish Photopolymer Stamp Set with Stampin’ Up! Balmy Blue Ink and added a strip of Balmy Blue 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock, measuring 1 x 5-1/4” which I embossed with the Stampin’ Up! Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder (discontinued) and distressed with Balmy Blue and Soft Suede Inks.

Creating Feminine and Masculine Watercolor Cards Using One Stampset

Hi friends. I’m back with some more cute cards using the Honey Bee Stamps Big Pickup Cab Stampset. Do you have stampsets that you think won’t work for both feminine and masculine cards?!? Try changing the color. It worked great for these birthday cards.

I started by stamping the truck image from Honey Bee Stamps Big Pickup Cab Stampset with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink onto Canson XL Series Watercolor Pad. Then added Clear Embossing Powder over it and heat set it. Next I used Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress Ink and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink for the truck, Mustard Seed Distress Ink for the headlights, Pumice Stone and Black Soot Distress Inks for the tires and metal items, and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the windshield.

Once dry, I stamped the sentiment on the hood with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink and diecut the truck with the coordinating dies. I also cut another truck from the Canson XL Series Watercolor Pad for the back of the car as well as a strip measuring 1″ wide x 3/4″ long and scored it at 1/2″. I adhered the strip to the back and front panels of the card to create the card base.


For the second card, I followed the same procedure except I used Catherine Pooler Designs Suede Shoes and Eucalyptus Inks for the truck, Catherine Pooler Designs Chiffon Ink for the headlights, Stampin’ Up! Smoky Slate and Catherine Pooler Designs Black Jack Ink for the tires and metal items, and Catherine Pooler Designs Hot Tub Ink for the windshield.

And that completes these cards. They are pretty easy to make. The watercoloring is a little time consuming but I find it cathartic. If it’s not your thing, use your favorite coloring tools instead.

I left the inside of the cards blank.

Balmy Blue Ink and a large watercolor brush to create a watercolor background on the circle piece. Then added splashes using a small watercolor brush and Stampin’ Up! Balmy Blue Ink and Granny Apple Green Ink to the watercolor circle as well as the top panel. Once dry, I adhered the circle to the back of the top panel in the window and the top panel to the card base with Tombow Mono Multipurpose Glue.

Next, I stamped and fussycut fruit and leaf images from the Berry Blessings Stampset and also fussycut some strawberries from the Berry Delightful 12 x 12 DSP. I used Granny Apple Green Ink, Pacific Point Ink, and Rich Razzleberry Ink.

Before adhering the fruit images, I stamped a sentiment from Berry Blessings Stampset with Poppy Parade Classic Ink onto the card then adhered the fruit images, popping some up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Lastly I added some black lines around the circle using a circle die and a Black 0.03 Sakura Pigma Micron Pen.
