Honey Bee Stamps - Holiday Cheer Coffee Cup Cards

Hello friends! I'm sharing some festive coffee cup shaped cards today.  I have several coffee drinkers in my family so these will come in handy. I will be enclosing a coffee shop gift card in each one.  The Coffee Cup Card Honey Cuts is one of my favorite Honey Bee die cut sets of all time. These cup shaped cards can easily be customized for any holiday or occasion with patterned paper.   

I have dressed up my cards using pretty papers from the Holiday Cheer pad. There's some fun festive prints in the this paper pad. There's even a pre printed sheet of sentiment strips that you can cut up and use as tags.  

To embellish the cups, I used the Country Christmas Wreath Honey Cuts. This die set has many little shapes that are the perfect size for adding to the center of the cup sleeve.

Hello Bluebird - Be Merry Office Party Card

Hi there! Today I'm happy to be sharing a card showcasing new stamps and dies from Hello Bluebird's November release.  I've mixed it up for this one and combined some of the stand alone dies with the adorable Holiday Office Party critters.  

All Hello Bluebird stamps and dies used are listed below:

This card is A2 size.  I started with some kraft card stock and die cut with this deckle edged die.  I sponged white pigment ink onto the outer edges and then splattered the entire panel with white paint. 

All die cut elements were cut from white card stock and then colored with a blender brush and Distress Oxide inks.  (colors used: pine sprigs - Bundled Sage, Pine Needles, Walnut Stain; berries - Festive Berries; Be Merry word - Spun Sugar & Festive Berries) I added a generous coating of Unicorn Stickles to the Be Merry die cut.  

I Copic colored two of the cute critters from Holiday Office Party.  Copic

Sunny Studio - Penguin Pals Slimline Card


Hello everyone! I'm sharing a holiday slimline card today. This design is a throw back to a card I made last year. It was and still is one of my favorite card designs. I used Merry Mice on last year's card (see the blog post here). For this new card I have used Penguin Pals. They are very similar in shape to the mice and work perfectly for this design. For more details, please head over to the Sunny Studio blog.

Honey Bee Stamps - Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder

Happy fall everyone! I don't think I'm alone in saying, Autumn is my favorite season. I love the colors of the changing leaves, and the crisp cool air, and most importantly all things pumpkin ...especially pumpkin spice coffee!

This is what inspired my project for today - a coffee shaped card that doubles as a gift card holder. It features the cutest Itty Bitty Pumpkin on the outside and a sweet Pumpkin Spice Latte on the inside.

Please join me over on the Honey Bee Stamps blog for all the details on how I created this fun fall card that doubles as a gift card holder.

Honey Bee Stamps - Autumn Afternoon Blog Hop Day 2

Hello Everyone! Welcome to my blog! I hope you are enjoying Day 2 of the Autumn Afternoon blog hop and getting lots of inspiration. You should have arrived from Lisa's blog.  Your next stop will be Amy's blog.  The full hop list is at the end of this post if you need to go back to visit anyone.  

***Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win a $25 gift code to shop with***

You can find the entire Autumn Afternoon release here

I have a few cards to share today, some of which you may have seen on my Instagram feed (@oneallgirlstudio). The first card is a new one that I made for the hop.  It features a couple of playful squirrels from Nuts About You   

I love some good light hearted humor so I was very excited to see this new super fun set.  It's full of cute images and great puns to go with the squirrel and acorn theme. 

Supplies used to make this card are listed below:

This next card features some beautiful new Honey Cuts - Lovely Layers Maple Leaf and Autumn Buzzword. Once again I've turned to my Distress Oxide Inks to color the die cuts.  

I die cut the leaves from both white and kraft card stock and then shaded with Seedless Preserves and Walnut Stain. The contrast of the detail layer over the solid layer is so stunning but quick and easy to achieve.  

My next card showcases a collage of pretty leaf images which are from the Hello Fall stamp set.  I used three colors of Oxide Inks to ink up the solid leaf images - Wild Honey, Mowed Lawn, & Carved Pumpkin. 

After I applied ink to the stamps, I used a damp paper towel to lightly dab the ink. That is what gives the stamped images a little bit of texture. I stamped the vein detail with Walnut Stain.  I used the same Oxide inks to create a messy watercolored background to build my collage on.  

For this last card, I have used images from Let's Hang Out to create a country vignette with a fall color palette. Copics used to color the images are as follows:
YG61, YG63, YG67, Y32, Y35, Y38, YR01, YR07, YR09, R20, E40, E41, B32, B34, B39, N2, N4, N6

The fun plaid background is a new 6x6 stamp called Farmhouse Check. I stamped it once in green and then a second time in orange. I just repositioned the stamp so the lines create the plaid pattern.

Honey Bee Stamps - Farmhouse Inspired Fall Card


Hello crafty friends! I have a Farmhouse inspired fall themed card to share today. I love the Farmhouse trend in home decor. The clean and classic Farmhouse style can easily be translated into a card design. All stamps and dies I used for this can be found in the Honey Bee Stamps shop.

I started by stamping the Buffalo Plaid with black ink onto some kraft card stock. I trimmed the plaid panel slightly smaller than A2 size and adhered it to a black A2 top folding card base.

I stamped three pumpkin images plus several leaves from the Pumpkin Patch set and colored with Copic markers. (YR21, YR12, YR15, YR18, YG61, YG63, Yg67) I adhered the pumpkins with thin dimensional foam squares so they would be popped up just a bit from the background. For the bold greeting, I used the 4×4 Fall stamp set along with the coordinating Fall Honey Cuts
