Yet another stunning card using the Lovely Layers Owl die set from Honey Bee Stamps. I wasn’t kidding in my first post using this set that just changing the color ways of your cardstock will give this die set an entirely different look & feel to your project!
This was another project from our Crop & Create Delivered Spring 2023 workshop with Kelly. All that we used was some pattered paper (with just a very light hint of texture). I just added a few white bits throughout the owl, along with some flicks from a matching brown copic marker to give that effect of white & darker feathers.
The evergreen watercolor effect background paper is part of an upcoming release – you will NOT be disappointed, the collection is absolutely stunning.
This die set is incredibly easy to use!! Honey Bee Stamps Lovely Layers die sets may look intimidating, but they provide layering guides, and a ton of inspiration projects for you to run with when creating your own projects.
Honey Bee lovely layer dies are always gorgeous, and this Owl layers die set is no exception. The variety you can create with this is endless! Masculine cards, Christmas or even just a birthday card for owl or nature lovers.
The pattered paper is from an exclusive paper pack that we received as an attendee of the Spring 2023 Crop & Create Delivered event, taught by Kelley Kohout. This paper may be included in the upcoming release on May 19 2023.
The owl may look complicated, but their layering guides make this extremely easy to assemble. This owl was made from pure white card stock, and I used a combination of colored pencils and a bit of Lost Shadow Distress Oxide ink blending for some of the larger pieces.
Using just pattered paper with smaller texture patterns, or even strictly solid colors will give you a gorgeous result. Stay tuned for more projects featuring this die set (and exclusive paper collection)!
I was inspired to pick up this set from the Spellbinders Sylish Oval collection again, to recreate another card from the Crop & Creste Delivered event. Using the same two color ways as my previous post I used only one layer from the Infinity plate and kept the floral spray in one piece this time.
I die cut the “Hello You” sentiment twice, and layered it together to give it a bit of dimension.
I used a pre foiled sentiment from a Pink Fresh Studios sentiment ephemera pack that I had in my stash so that I could vary the sentiments for this design.
HELPFUL HINT: Use a shim with these dies! I just grab a scrap piece of card stock and lay it on top of my die cut ‘sandwich’ to add just a bit of extra pressure that is needed to cut all the way through every detail in these plates.
Taylored Expressions Buds & Blossoms layering stencils always deliver! Just choose your color palette and it’s easy to make beautiful cards.
This project was part of the Crop & Create delivered Spring 2023 Taylored Expressions workshop; but I modified my version to have a different sentiment with a Pink Fresh Studios foiled Sending Hugs sentiments in silver.
These are the colors of Taylored Expressions inks I used for this card
I had cut a few extra pieces from my first Zesty Lemon card, so I thought I would create this card based on a card Chari Moss created for Lawn Fawn’s release of the set recently.
I didn’t have the dies to create the stripes so I used what I had in my stash. The Pink Fresh sentiment in gold hot foiled on white card stock gave it a classic look that could be given to anyone (even our favourite guy). Using the same buttercup yellow glitter paper I created just the slightest drop shadow for the hot fouled sentiment that gave it that extra subtle pop.
I have had this Sizzix cupcake for for a while now, and I had a stroke of inspiration when I saw Doodlebug’s Hey Cupcake enamel sprinkles in my local craft supply store. I knew I had to pull out this die set to make a card with these cute sprinkles!
The construction of the cupcake was super easy – I used 110lb card-stock for the base, cut just above the score line to allow a top folding card base.
Using foam tape under the cupcake base and ‘icing’ layers gave it just the right pop of dimension; and a C00 Coptic marker to lightly add in some shading to create more dimension in the icing.
A white gel pen & crystal effects added a perfect gloss on the cherry – glued flat to the icing layer.
Summer is in full swing, and Stampin Up’s Sweet As A Peach collection is the perfect suite to kick it off!
Using the Sweet As A Peachg 12×12 Designer Series Paper (DSP) along with the photopolymer stamps and coordinating dies, I used sponge daubers to ink the peaches (stamped in pale papaya) and inked for dimension with calypso coral. Pear pizazz was used to stamp the leaves, and the lightest yellow I had to create the flowers.
Photoplay Paper does it again with this super fun & whimsical Whisker paper collection!! I have a girlfriend who loves cats just as much as I do, so I knew I had to make her this card for her!!
I created a few super basic layers, then matted the trimmed sentiment panel with Tattered Lace torn edge rectangles dies. This card took literally less than 15 minutes, but it sure made her day when it arrived in the post. 🙂
