To Bee or Not To Bee Blog Hop!

To Bee Or Not to Bee Blog Hop!

It's World Bee Day and today we are participating in a World Bee Day Blog Hop, organized by Milka Gubo! This hope has been organized by Milka to help celebrate the 2nd World Bee Day, to support bees and to raise public awareness of the importance of bees and apicultural products. All the stops in this hop will be featuring fun Bee and/or Honey themed projects!  

To play along with the hop we are featuring an adorable Honey Bee Hive Card created by me!! Scroll down to see my beautiful card and details on how it was created!!

Hello!! I'm sharing a fun Honey Bee Hive Card Today!! 

Have you ever used your Patterned Stencils in order to add dimension and interest to a shaped card Design!!?? For my Honey Bee Hive Shaped Card Base today that is exactly what I'm going to do!! First I Die Cut the Honey Bee Hive from some Lawn Fawn #2 Pencil Cardstock and then I created Mask to add some shading to the layers of the Hive with a light inking of Wild Honey Distress Ink!! Then I placed the Newton's Nook Designs Argyle Stencil Set over the top and used some Purple tape to hold it in place while I inked with Wild Honey Distress Ink!! I removed the Stencil and the Subtle Pattern adds so much dimension to the design!!

Then I placed the second piece from the Argyle Stencil Set over the inked design and lined up the pattern placing more Purple tape to hold it in place!! Then with the help of the Therm O Web Stencil Pal I applied some Gina K Designs Glitter Glitz Gel in White!! I removed the Purple Tape and the Stencil and set it aside to dry!! Swoon!! It adds such a neat affect to the design!!

I stamped and embossed the images from the Newton's Costume Party Stamp Set and colored them in using Copic Markers!! (Newton: N0, N2 & N4 R00 for the cheeks  Bee Outfit: N8, N6, N4 Y11, Y15 & YR23  Wings: Bg000, BG10) I used the coordinating Newton's Costume Party Die Set to cut the images out and added some White Gel pen highlights, some Aqua Shimmer Pen for some Sparkle and Tonic Studios Black Nuvo Drops to add some dimension!! I also Stamped some of the tiny bee images from the Newton's Day Dream Stamp Set!! I wanted some Bees fling in the opposite direction, so I also used my Ranger Gel Printing Plate along with my Misti Stamping tool to Mirror Stamp a few of the Bees!! Then I Fussy Cut them out!! For the sentiment I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from the Loads of Blooms Stamp Set onto a vellum die cut speech bubble using the Speech Bubble Die Sets!! I masked off "Beauty" and Embossed it with some WOW Pearl Gold Glitter Embossing Powder!!

For the inside of the card I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Newton's Day Dream Stamp Set and stamped another bee image and then added a red foiled heart that I added some Tonic Studios Morning Dew Nuvo Drops too to add some Dimension!!

I created a SWEET Hello Card for today using the *NEW* stamp set called "Basket Add On: Thinking of You" Stamp Set and the coordinating "Basket Add On: Thinking of You" Sweet Cuts Die Set which are now available in the Paper Sweeties Shop!! 
 Here's a look at the the NEW Sets this Month if you're just joining me today!! 
I wanted to create a SWEET Scene using the Keep Calm and Drink Coffee Sweet Cuts Die!! I Die Cut it from some of my NEW favorite Patterned Paper Collection "Gingham Farm" by My Mind's Eye!! SWOON!! I LOVE the ENTIRE Collection!! I die Cut 3 more Coffee Cup images form Black Cardstock and layered them all together to create a dimensional Cup!! Then I Stamped and Embossed the Images form the NEW Basket Add On: Thinking of You Set and the Sweet Ladybug Image from the Cute as a Bug Stamp Set!! I Colored them all with Copic Markers!! 
(Flowers: R43, R46 & R89  Leaves: G40, G43, & G46   Ladybug: R43, R46, R89, N6, N4, N2, BG000, BG11   Sign: N2, E25 & E29) 

I used Distress Oxide Inks in Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint to ink up the background and then I Stamped and Embossed the "Hello" Sentiment onto the sign using some WoW Clear Glitter Embossing Powder!! Its a little touch, but in person it really adds alot to the SWEET Scene!!  I used a Woodgrain patterned Paper (also from the Gingham Farm Collection) for my Card Panel and added some White Gel Pen and Glitter Gel Pen Details to finish of the Design!! I LOVE the way it turned out and KNOW it'll bring a SMILE to someones Face!!

Newton's Nook Designs May Release ~ Newton Cleans Up!!

Pin It
Hello!!
SQUEAL!!
         I'm here with Day 2 of the 
               Newton's Nook Designs May Release 2019!! 
.       Today we're showcasing the NEW  
"Newton Cleans UpStamp Set coordinating 
"Newton Cleans Up" Die Set!! 
Let's take a look at the AWESOME New Products!!
How FUN is this Set!!?? Bringing the EVERYDAY activities we may NOT enjoy into our Crafting makes me GIGGLE!! If only our Pets could really help us out with Laundry, Vacuuming and Dishes!! 😜
So for my Card I went with that thought and wanted to create a Scene Card of the Kitties doing the Work for a Friends Birthday!! I Stamped and Embossed both the Images and used Copic Markers to color them in!! (Kitties: E40, E42 & E43  R00 for the Cheeks  Vacuum: R43, R46 & R89  N0, N2 & N5   Y11 & YR23   Laundry Basket: N0, N2 & N5  Y11, YR23  YR00, YR68  R43, R46 & R89) I added some Tonic Studios Aqua Shimmer Pen and Morning Dew Nuvo Drops to certain areas to make them POP!! 
I wanted to create a Room Backround so I used the NEW Cascading Stars Stencil and Inked with some Weathered Wood Distress Oxide Ink to Ink them onto my Wall!! Then I removed the Stencil and Inked the entire Wall with a light coat of Weathered Wood Distress Oxide Ink!! For the floor I used some Simple Stories Woodgrain Patterned Paper!! I added some Shading with Distress Oxide Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink!! I Die Cut the Framework Frame Die from some Oreo TE Cardstock and mounted the scene onto a TE Sea Salt Cardbase!! I LOVE the way it turned out!! Grey isn't a color I use alot of and you might just be seeing ALOT more of it from me!!
 For the Sentiment I Stamped and Embossed it onto a NND Speech Bubble Die Cut with some WoW Embossing Red Glitz Embossing Powder and Clear Detail Embossing Powder!! I think its SO FUN to maks parts of the Sentiment and make them POP with a different color of Embossing Powder or Ink!! I did the same think for the inside of the Card, only I Stamped and Embossed onto Oreo TE Cardstock!! 

If you want to make the Red Glitz Embossing Powder POP on the Black Cardstock then Emboss the entire Sentiment in White Embossing Powder and then Mask off the Word you want to POP and Stamp over with Versa Mark ink and add your Red Glitz Embossing Powder and set!! The White Embossing Base really makes it POP on the Black Cardstock!!

HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!!

Welcome to Day 2 of the Paper Sweeties 
May Release 2019!! 
I created a SWEET Gift Tag for today using the *NEW* stamp set called "Basket Add On: Thinking of You" Stamp Set and the coordinating "Basket Add On: Thinking of You" Sweet Cuts Die Set which are now available in the Paper Sweeties Shop!! 
 Here's a look at the the NEW Sets this Month!! 

Basket Add-on: Thinking of you Sweet Cuts

I think its FUN to think outside of the Box with Floral Images!! I LOVE the idea of using just part of the Image!! So I've Stamped and Embossed it onto the Stitched Tag #1 Sweet Cuts Die!! Then I stamped and Embossed the "Thinking of You" Sentiment using Distress Oxide Ink in Tumbled Glass!! I Colored in the Image with Copic Markers!! (Roses: R43, R46 & R89    Leaves: G40, G43 & G46) I used more Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to ink the Background of the Tag too!! Then added some Water Droplets for some Texture!!

 I Die Cut a Chalkboard Patterned Paper with the same Tag Die and layered it behind the Stamped Tag to make it POP against the Gift Box!! I used the Treat Box Sweet Cuts Die to create my Gift Box and Die Cut it from some Lawn Fawn Pattered Paper!! A Strawberry Seam Binding Ribbon Bow and Black Gingham Ribbon Bow finish off the Design!!
