Loads of Fall Card featuring Honey Bee Stamps

Hi friends. Here’s another cute Fall/Autumn card using the Honey Bee Stamps Loads Of Fall stampset and dies and the Honey Bee Stamps Big Pickup Tailgate Stampset and dies. Lots of fun images in both these stampsets and lots of combinations you can use to create a variety of different cards, not just seasonal ones.

I started by stamping all the images I needed from the Honey Bee Stamps Loads Of Fall stampset and the Honey Bee Stamps Big Pickup Tailgate Stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and set them aside to dry.

I cut a piece of Catherine Pooler Sand Dunes 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock (retired) to 10 x 7″ and scored at 5″ to make the card base. I also cut a piece of Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad to 4-3/4 x 6″. Since this paper pad is only 6 x 6 I had to get creative and fill in the sides with more paper. So I cut two pieces of patter paper to 1/2 x 4-3/4″ and adhered it behind the larger piece.

I colored the images with Copic Markers. I used B00, B02, and B06 for the truck; N1, N2 & N4 for the metal portions such as the mirror; N5 and N8 for the tires; BG000 & 0 for the windows; R05 & R27 for the lights; R05 & R27 for the doggy bandana, E29, E23, & E37 for the dog; YR14 & YR21 for the license plate; YG61, G94, YG99, & E15 for the jug; YR16, YR04 & Y18, Y13 & Y16, YG61, G94, & YG99, YG91 & E15 for the pumpkins; R05 & R27, E55, E57 & E29 for the apple bucket.

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4-3/4 x 6-3/4” and stamped a sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamps Big Pickup Cab Stampset and Lawn Fawn Thanks Thanks Thanks with Honey Bee Stamps Big Pickup Tailgate Stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

Three Fall Cards Using the Honey Bee Stamps Patchwork Pumpkin Stampset

I love this new Patchwork Pumpkin Stampset from Honey Bee Stamps! You can create all kinds of cute pumpkins. You can also add flowers and the coordinating dies makes it easy to cut everything out. I made three cards using different color papers and coloring methods but with the same embossing powder. I wanted to see how to create different cards by just making subtle changes. Using pattern papers and embossing folders is also an easy way to add interest.

For the first 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 4-1/4″ to make the card base and cut a piece of the watercolor leaf paper from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad to 4 x 5-1/4″ and another of the purple leaf paper to 2 x 5-1/4″.

I used Versamark Ink to stamp several of the pattern pumpkins, leaves, curly vines and the stem from the Honey Bee Stamps Patchwork Pumpkin Stampset onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. Then diecut all the pieces with the oval die included in the coordinating dieset. I used Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks to color the pumpkin and Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn to color the leaves and vines. I used 3M Foam Tape to pop up the center piece of the pumpkin and some of the leaves. Before adhering it to the card I added Love From Lizi Straight Peel-Off Stickers in Gold.

I stamped the sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamps Patchwork Pumpkin Stampset with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and diecut it with the coordinating dies. I added a little Mowed Lawn Distress Ink around the edges.

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of the same watercolor leaf paper from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad to 1 x 5-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Stamp Set with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink.

Dimensions

For the second card, I started by cutting a piece of Catherine Pooler Sand Dunes 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock (discontinued-any kraft cardstock will work) to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make the card base and cut a piece of the purple paper from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad to 4 x 5-1/4″.

I used Versamark Ink to stamp several of the pattern pumpkins, leaves, curly vines and the stem from the Honey Bee Stamps Patchwork Pumpkin Stampset onto some Catherine Pooler Sand Dunes 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock (retired) and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. Then diecut all the pieces with the oval die included in the coordinating dieset. I used Tim Holtz Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin Distress Inks to color the pumpkin and Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn to color the leaves and vines. I used 3M Foam Tape to pop up the center piece of the pumpkin and some of the leaves.

I diecut the sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Honey Cuts and Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ 3x and adhered them together. I colored the bottom of the word with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink to create an ombre effect. I adhered it onto the pumpkin and stamped the rest of the sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Stamp Set with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of the white leaf pattern paper from the Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad. I trimmed it down to 1/2 x 1-7/8″ before adhering to the card.

I finished it off by adding some Love From Lizi Pin Stripe Peel-Off Stickers in Gold Mirror Moondust.

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of the same purple paper from Honey Bee Stamps Halloween Harvest 6×6 Paper Pad to 1 x 5-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps Happy Fall Y’all Stamp Set with Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink.

Dimensions



For the third card, I kept thing a little simpler. I started by cutting a piece of Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to make the card base. I embossed the front to the card with one of the embossing folders from the Queen & Co’s Embossing Folder Bundle.

This time, I used Versamark Ink to stamp several of the pattern pumpkins, leaves, curly vines, flowers and the stem from the Honey Bee Stamps Patchwork Pumpkin Stampset onto some Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. Tip: Make sure to use a good amount of anti-static powder when using embossing powder on dark cardstock or it will stick where you don’t want. Then diecut all the pieces with the oval die included in the coordinating dieset. I colored the leaves, vine sand flowers with Prismacolor Pencils.

I diecut the sentiment from the Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Honey Cuts and Tim Holtz Idea-ology 8 x 8 Paper Stash Metallic Kraft Stock. I adhered it onto the pumpkin and stamped the rest of the sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps Autumn Stamp Set with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder onto a piece of Stampin’ Up! Night of Navy 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock. I trimmed it down to 3/8 x 7/8″ before adhering to the card.

On the inside of the card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4 x 5-1/4″ and left it blank.

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.

Fun Fold Sweet Ice Cream Thank You Card and Using Your Older 6 x 6 Paper Pads

Hi everyone! I was playing with the Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Ice Cream Stampset and tried to think of a card I can make using minimal supplies and taking advantage of all the paper in my stash! Here’s what I came up with.

I stamped the ice cream cone from Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Ice Cream Stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Stampin’ Up! Sahara Sand Ink (cone) and Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake Ink (waffle pattern), and four ice cream scoops with Catherine Pooler Designs Be Mine, Lime Rickey, It’s a Boy and Serenade Inks. I also stamped the highlight that comes in the stampset with Lawn Fawn Yeti Ink on the pink and blue scoops and sprinkles on the green and purple scoops with Catherine Pooler Designs Over Coffee Ink and adhered the ice cream pieces to the card.

I stamped and fussycut the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up!’s Sweet Ice Cream Stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I finished it off by adding some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dark Walnut.

Fourth of July/Patriotic House Card featuring Honey Bee Stamps

When I purchased this Honey Bee Stamps Farmhouse Add-on Dies and Stampset I knew I had to make a patriotic themed card. And love how it turned out! There really are endless possibilities with the House Builder Card Base Dies and add-on dies and stampsets available.

For this card, I started by diecutting the house card base 2x from the House Builder Card Base Dies, chimney, roof, 2 windows, porch steps and four bushes 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 stenciled bricks on the front of the house with Tim Holtz BRICKED Layering Stencil and Stampin’ Up! Smoky Slate Ink, also colored the porch steps with Stampin’ Up! Smoky Slate Ink, roof and chimney with Tim Holtz BLUEPRINT SKETCH and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks, the door with Barn Door, bushes with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn and windows with Broken China Distress Inks.

I adhered the roof and chimney to the card base and added a brick pattern to the chimney with a White Gel Pen.

I diecut the window frames, porch header (I added a piece of vellum behind it which I colored with Stampin’ Up! Smoky Slate Ink), window frames, porch rails and beams/columns from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with the Farmhouse Add-on Dies. I also diecut curtains from Doodlebug Designs Yankee Doodle 6×6 Paper Pad (I believe it’s discontinued) with the House Builder Card Base.

I stamped the decorative star, bunting, bench and one flower pot onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I also stamped a wreath with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. I used E23 and E27 for the bench and flower pot, YG17 and YG67 for the plant, R27, R46 and R59 for the star and R27, R46 & R59, B26 & B29, and C1 & 0 for the bunting. Then die cut the images with the Farmhouse Add-on Dieset. As a finishing touch I added a doorknob with Tonic LIQUID MERCURY Nuvo Crystal Drops. A die for the doorknob is included in the dieset but it’s so tiny I’m always afraid to misplace it.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment “Happy Fourth of July” using a really old greeting stampset (maybe Lawn Fawn or SSS- it was before I started labelling my stamps) and added bunting underneath.

Two Cards Using One Background Die and Trying to Be Less Wasteful

Hi friends. When I purchased the Sunburst Strips Cover Plate Die from Catherine Pooler Designs I knew that I had to try rainbow colors but also glitter paper because your sun rays need to sparkle! Rainbow sunshine rays to come for sure! Stay tuned. I decided to alternate the colors of the rays but also cut off the top of the rays with a circle and add another circle for the sun. I ended up with extra pieces of rays which I then used on a second card. No waste here!

For the first card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 6-1/4 x 10″ and scored at 5″ to create a card base and to make it easier to adhere the sun, I also cut a top panel to 4-3/4 x 6″.

I diecut the Sunburst Strips Cover Plate Die from Gold and White Glitter Cardstock. I didn’t have any light yellow glitter paper so I used the white and colored with some old alcohol markers. WARNING: Coloring glitter cardstock with markers will ruin the tip of the marker so if you use a good alcohol marker like a copic make sure you have extra nibs. I taped the back of each diecut piece of cardstock and then used a 3″ circle die to cut off the narrow end. You can use whatever size you want here. Then cut a 2-1/2″ circle from the White Glitter Cardstock. I adhered all the sun pieces to the 4-3/4 x 6″ panel I previously cut and that to the card base.

I diecut two umbrella bases using the Catherine Pooler Designs Under the Umbrella Dies from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″. I used the direct-to-paper technique with CP Flirty Fuschia Ink on the handle only and cut it out. Then diecut the patterned sections from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″, and again used direct-to-paper technique with Coral Cabana, Tiki Torch, Lime Rickey, and Fiesta Blue and adhered them to the umbrella base and adhered the umbrella to the card.

I stamped the small and medium rain drops from the Catherine Pooler Designs Pitter Patterns Stamp Set with CP Something Borrowed Ink then die cut them with the Pitter Pattern Dies. I adhered three of them and the umbrella to the card.

I stamped a sentiment from the Catherine Pooler Designs Pitter Patterns Stamp Set with CP Midnight Ink and cut it to 1/2 x 3-1/2″. Then finished it off by adding some Catherine Pooler Designs Portland Sequin Mix and some Glossy Accents to the rain drops.

I left the inside of the card blank.

Dimensions


For the second card, I did the exact same things with a few exceptions. I cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 9-1/2 x 5-3/4″ and scored at 4-3/4to create a card base and thIs time I adhered the sun directly to the card base and didn’t leave any border around it.

I diecut two umbrella bases using the Catherine Pooler Designs Under the Umbrella Dies from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ again and used the direct-to-paper technique with CP Something Borrowed Ink on the handle only and cut it out. Then diecut the patterned sections from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″, and again used direct-to-paper technique with Party Dress, Orange Peel, Aquatini, and Something Borrowed and adhered them to the umbrella base and adhered the umbrella to the card.

Again, I used a few small and medium rain drops from the Catherine Pooler Designs Pitter Patterns Stamp Set stamped with CP Something Borrowed Ink then die cut them with the Pitter Pattern Dies. I adhered three of them and the umbrella to the card.

I stamped the same sentiment from the Catherine Pooler Designs Pitter Patterns Stamp Set with CP Midnight Ink and fussycut it this time. And added some Catherine Pooler Designs Portland Sequin Mix.

A Quick Emboss Resist Background Featuring Catherine Pooler Designs Bloomin’ Wellies

Hi friends. I don;t know about you but I love a cute pair of wellies! And this stampset from Catherine Pooler Designs, Bloomin’ Wellies, is adorable. For this card I tried creating a completely covered distress resist background but I didn’t like it in the end so I diecut it into a circle and I think this works so much better. So if you make a background and you don’t quite love it, use only a portion of it and that usually solves the problem.

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 4-1/4″ to create a card base and a top panel to 4 x 5-1/4″ (which will get diecut later). I used Versamark Ink to stamp the rain drops from the Catherine Pooler Designs Pitter Patterns Stamp Set, added some WOW Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder and heat set it. Then I used Ranger Tim Holtz Broken China Distress and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks and water to create a watercolored background.

I set that aside to dry and stamped the wellies image from Catherine Pooler Designs Bloomin’ Wellies stampset onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink. I also stamped additional flowers from the stampset which matched the ones in this wellies pair. Then colored it with Copic Markers. I used RV 63 + RV55 + RV66 for the wellies, YR31 + YR23 for the polka dots, YG25 +YG17 + YG67 for the leaves, BV17 + BV13, BG45 +BG05, RV52 + RV63, and YR16 + YR07 for the flowers. I diecut it with the Bloomin’ Wellies Dies.

I diecut the background panel with a 3-3/4″ circle with the Sizzix Framelits Die Set and another from Simon Says Stamp BLACK 100# 8-1/2 x 11″ Card Stock and adhered both to the card base. I adhered the wellies and additional flowers to the card, using some Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop them up.

I stamped a sentiment from Catherine Pooler Designs Bloomin’ Wellies stampset onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink and fussycut it out before adhering it to the card. I finished it off by adding some sequins from the Catherine Pooler Designs Porland Sequin Mix.

I left the inside of the card blank.
