Jack O'Layers with Crystal

Hi there Strawberry Jude Stamps fans! Crystal here with my first post as your design team member. Today I have a card featuring my favorite set from the August release, Jack O'Layers!

 This was a relatively simple card to make! First I began by stamping the pumpkin from the Jack O'Layers set onto a white piece of card stock. Once that was dry, I fussy cut around it and set aside.

Next, I trimmed a piece of kraft card stock as my base, layered with leaves patterned paper and placed a brown card stock on top. I placed my felt leaves at the bottom, then added a yellow checkered paper. I adhered the pumpkin with 3D foam, then placed my die cut "thanks" sentiment.
To finish it off, glossy accents was added to the die cut.

This one turned out so cute, and ready for fall.
Supplies used:

SJS Jack O'Layers
White, brown and kraft card stock,
Felt leaves
Echo Park Paper Pad in "Fall is in the air"
Glossy accents
Thanks die

I hope you like the card, and come by again soon!

This card was fun to make with lots of stamping involved, so lets get started!

First I stamped the bee trail on the side of the card in black. Next I stamped comb in yellow, while that dried I stamped the honey house on to separate paper and water colored that. Next fuzzy cut and adhered on the card. I then placed the whole base onto a patterned paper. To finish it off, I added a “hello” die cut in black.

Golden Blooms

Hi Honey bees, Crystal here on this beautiful Wednesday with a bit of a different sympathy card for a friend. I wanted to create a something elegant yet sympathetic.

First I trimmed a base of black card stock, then I proceeded to heat emboss in gold the prayers sentiment from the HB Prayers stamp set. Once that was all set, I heat embossed the flowers from Country Blooms on the base. While I waited for that to cool, I heat embossed another set of flowers from Country Bloom set on another piece of black card stock.

Using gold watercolors, I colored the inside of each flower. Once that was dry I cut them out and adhered them to the base with foam adhesive.
DSC_0101 To finish this off, I added Honey Bee dew drops on the edges of the flowers.
