Sending Sunshine card with Honey Bee Stamps

Hello all, Kia here creating a card with Honey Bee stamps today to introduce you to “Sunshine Thoughts”. This is a thank you card, the sentiment is stamped on the on the inside of the card

First, the front of my card. I am using Tim Holtz Distress inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Tumbled Glass for this card.  To start I masked off some rays with removable tape  the left side of a white piece of card stock.  Next I blended over it with the Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed alternating between the two colours. I then die cut the sun, clouds and hearts from white card using  the Rainbow Dreams Honey bee die set.

To the sun add Squeezed Lemonade. The top of the clouds was done using Tumbled Glass, and the hearts were done using first the Squeezed Lemonade, then blended the Tumbled Glass, creating the green. Did you know that green hearts represent gratitude?

On one of the clouds I stamped the sentiment “Sending Sunshine” using distress ink in Mustard Seed. I then stamped the “and” int the same colour below where the cloud would be and attached the green hearts below that using Nuvo adhesive.

I arranged the sun and clouds then attached them using varying layers of foam squares to create depth. Next step is to the middle green heart I added a crystal gem. Then attached them to a coordinating yellow mat leaving an 1/8′ boarder and mounted it  on a pre-folded A2 white card.

On the inside of the card the sentiment is from the Bitty Buzzword stamps and dies from Honey Bee, echoing to the colours from the front.

Thank you for joining me today. I hope you enjoy today’s card, Sunshine Thoughts featuring Honey Bee Stamps. Following are links for the products which can be found in the Scrap’n Stamp store.

All About Smooshing

Happy Friday! Father’s Day and the Summer Solstice are on Sunday, but I hope you’ll be able to find a little time to craft this weekend, too. And maybe you will do some ink smooshing! A fun and simple technique that can lead to great results.

For my first card today, I used a smooshing technique that gives a little more control than usual over the end result.


All you need is a craft mat or similar waterproof surface (I use a laminated half sheet of cardstock) and a piece of clear acetate – as a former teacher, I do seem to have a few sheets still lying around. 😀 For colours, I used four distress inks: seedless preserves, blueprint sketch, evergreen bough and squeezed lemonade. For each colour, I smooshed the ink pad, spritzed with water, then used the acetate to pick up the ink and transfer it to my watercolour panel. This way, you can see exactly where you’re smooshing it! It also keeps the colours from blending too much, if that’s the look you want. Once I had my background the way I wanted it, I set it aside to dry and stamped this cute guy from My Favorite Things’ Puppy Kisses. Since I wanted him to really pop against the background, I didn’t worry about adding any shading or shadows, just coloured his collar with a couple of green Copics. I also die cut a few extra shapes, so I could layer them together and add a bit of dimension.

Once my smooshed panel was dry, I die cut it and a coordinating blue cardstock panel with MFT’s wonky stitched dies. For the heart, I stamped with Versamark and embossed with white, then watercoloured inside with more seedless preserves to increase the intensity. (As you can tell, I couldn’t resist adding a little Glossy Accents at the end. 😀 ) The sentiment is stamped with the same grey ink as my pup.


If you’ve received any happy mail from Scrap ‘n Stamp recently, you may have found a fun journaling card tucked in with your order. I decided to turn mine into a Father’s Day card for a work-from-home dad:

Of course I never throw away the leftovers from smooshing! I had a panel I had previously used to die cut an autumn leaf, but look how well it works with this journaling card! I matted the card in black and edged the smooshed layer with some of the same carved pumpkin distress ink I’d used for smooshing. “Nope. Not Today” is a snarky sentiment strip, while the busy stamp and the arrow are from deep in my stash. 😉

I hope these have given you some inspiration to get smooshing! Have a great weekend!


Sweet Friend Cupcake Valentine

Hi stamping friends and welcome back. Sandi here and hope you had a very Merry Christmas. Today’s card share is a copic colored Sweet Friend Cupcake Valentine.

I used the Colorado Craft Company GIGANTIC Cupcake stamp for today’s project. They have a whole line of these super large stamps (ClICK HERE to view them) that I just love and they are perfect for practicing your copic coloring.

Please note, the Cupcake is on a preorder as it was so popular it sold out, so ordering it now will reserve it for you. I have linked to the ice cream cone as you could use the same colors to color it.

Strawberry cream on Chocolate is my favorite cupcake so that’s what I decided to color today. I stenciled a random dot background onto my pink card front to mirror the dots I added to the cupcake paper.

The cupcake itself is colored on White card stock, cut out and glued to the pink card base.

For this one I wanted a more “valentine” feel to it, so I used the My Favorite Things “lots of Heart” stencil for the background.

Scrap N’ Stamp is one of the few places in Canada you can order copic markers from online.

Here’s a list of the colors I used for today’s project, and there is a video below walking you through how I colored this fabulous morsel of goodness too. But hey, feel free to create your favourite flavor of cupcake too.

In the video I also show you how I stamped the cupcake in the center of a 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 (half sheet) of white card stock. I colored the cupcake the same as the pink one, but instead of cutting it out, I cut it in half to create two card fronts.

Then I used B000 copic in light blue to color the background for this one, and used two more of the sentiments from the stamp set for these fun guys.

Here’s the video for today’s Copic Colored Sweet Friend Cupcake Valentine Card
