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.
On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Village Shops Stampset with Stampin’ Up!’s Magenta Madness and some tiny cupcakes from the Honey Bee Stamps Treat Shop Add-On 6×6 Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
