New HoneyPOP Cupcake Card

I found a leftover HoneyPOP cupcake from my previous card and you can't let a cupcake go to waste so I whipped up this new card design using it. Enjoy!

HoneyPOP Happy Birthday Cupcake

Here's a really cool card I designed using another of the Inky Antics HoneyPOP stamp sets with a honeycomb cupcake on the front that folds down for mailing. The recipient opens it up when they get it and folds it over so they can display it open and then close it back up when they want to store it. To add more dimension the bird is mounted using dimensional foam. The cherry was stamped again, cut out and then mounted on top of the other cherry on the mounted bird, which helps get the image up to same dimension as the honeycomb cupcake. The foam I used is very squishy so it collapses down in the envelope.

You can use almost any color you want for the cupcake top. I started out by using yellow so it was gender nuetral. The pink went best with the cherry theme though so that's the one I am sharing here.

HoneyPOP Hoppy Easter Card

Here's the cool follow on to the previous post. This uses the same HoneyPOP set as last time and a second Easter one. The set includes a stamp for a normal carrot image, which I used last time, and the stamps for the honeycomb paper, which is what I used this time.

Here's the outside front of the card.

Opening the card, opens the honeycomb paper to reveal this surprise inside. The inside here is mostly following the standard pattern established by the set. You have to put the carrot in the middle so it will open, and the sentiment goes with the carrot. If you ran out of the honeycomb paper, or opted not to use it like I did in the last post then you use the full carrot image instead and you can put it anywhere even on the outside like I did last time.

As always, click on an image for the full directions and supplies.

Tomorrow, I'll start working on the post of a card using a different set, where I figured out how to put the honeycomb image on the outside of the card!

Carrots For You Easter Card

I wasn't planning on posting any more Easter cards this year, but then I saw the new HoneyPOP collection Inky Antics had in person at a stamping convention and had to get them, so now I have 2 more cards to post before Easter. This card is actually made with the stamps that they designed for the inside of the card, but I flipped things around and used them on the outside to make a card that doesn't actually use any of the new HoneyPOP paper. Here's the card:

I'm still working on the post and web page for the other card that does use the new HoneyPOP paper. Stay tuned, I hope to post it tomorrow night.

Easter Lily Card

Here's another Easter card using the same stamp sets as the last two cards have used but this time the main focus is the Easter lily stamps from the set arranged on paper cut with a new Grand Nestibilities die I got with a 50% off coupon at the local store before they ran out and quit selling them.

This card isn't that hard to make if you have the dies but it takes a while to fussy cut out all the lily images for the second layer so plan to spend an hour or more per card if you try to make one like this. Here's the card image:

Copic Rejoice Easter Cross Card

Here's an Easter card I made a weekend or two ago. The cross image is colored with Copic markers while the rest of it is cardstock and stamping.

This one took a long time to design. I had originally stamped the cross in gold embossing. Then I decided to try black ink thinking it would stand out better and could just be a bottom layer but I really didn't like the way a gold embossed cross stacked on top of it. I stamped one in purple and that didn't look right either. After much playing, I was about to give up and just use an embossed gold image, since it looked the best out of what I had tried, but then I remembered Copic has a nice gold colored marker (Y28) and went back to the black stamped image and colored one with markers, which finally gave me a cross that could stand on its own against the background. I was hoping to stamp the sentiment on the card directly, but the Bazzill paper had a texture to it and the little stamp proved it required a great a deal of precision to produce a good image so I had to go with a mounted sentiment.
