Honey Bee Stamps House Builder Valentine’s Day Card

Hi friends. I used the House Builder Card Base Dies from Honey Bee Stamps along with the Treat Shop Add-On Dies and Stamps to make this cute Valentine’s Day Card. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to make another card with these dies. They are still one of my faves!

For this card, I started by cutting a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 10 x 7″and scored it at 5″ and a panel to 5 x 7″ for the background, which I inked with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Inks. Then diecut the house card base 1x with the House Builder Card Base Dies from Pebbles Forever My Always 6 x 6 Paper.

Then die cut the roof and window awnings from both Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and Stampin’ Up! Real Red 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 window from the front of the card.

The door was diecut from the same two color cardstocks using the Honey Cuts Gingerbread House Add-On and the stairs from Simon Says Stamp Card Stock 100# Slate Gray Cardstock. I added some dimension to the house base, the door, steps, and awning with ink. I used Catherine Pooler Pink Champagne for the house base, Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink for the roof and door and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink for the steps. I also diecut the bushes from Stampin’ Up! Old Olive 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock with the House Builder Card Base Dies and added Stampin’ Up! Old Olive Ink around the edges.

I added a piece of Vellum behind the window as well as a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to create a frosted window appearance. I added a strip of Simon Says Stamp Card Stock 100# FOG Gray Cardstock to the bottom of the card before adhering the house. I stamped all the 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. Additionally, I used Clear Embossing Powder on the “Candy Shop” and “We Are Open” signs for some added dimension and interest.

I colored them with Copic Markers. I used BG000 and Copic Blender 0 for all glass elements (cake dome, candy dome and gumball machine); R81 & R83, C1, C3, & C5 for the chairs and table; R14 & R27, R81 & R83 for the umbrella. E25 & E29, R81, R83 & R85, C1 & 0 for the cupcakes; R14 & R27, C00 & 0, BG000, G94 and E25 for the gumball machine; E25 & E29 for the chocolates; R81, R83 & R85 for the present; and G94 & G99, R81 & R83, E25 & E29, R14 & R27 for the candies.

I popped up the “Candy Shop” sign, “We Are Open” sign and the cake dome with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I created the heart banner by stamping the little heart from Honey Bee Stamps Little Pickup 4×6 Stamp Set with Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink onto a piece of and cut them using the coordinating dies. Then I drew a black line using a Sharpie Ultra Fine Point Marker (you need to use a permanent marker when writing on vellum or it will smudge).

I finished off the card by adding some highlights to some of the images with a White Gel Pen.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Happy Happy Happy Add-on Stampset with Stampin’ Up! Real Red Ink and added a tiny awning which I cut from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ and Stampin’ Up! Real Red 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock using the Honey Bee Stamps Treat Shop Add-On Dies. I added some left over images I had colored and die cut.

Another great add-on dieset from Honey Bee Stamps! The Treat Shop Add-On Dies and Stamps coordinate with the House Builder Card Base Dies and allow you to make lots of sweet cards. You can create a bakery, ice cream shop or candy shop. The possibilities are endless with this set.

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 stamped images from the Honey Bee Stamps Treat Shop Add-On 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.
