Golden Honey Designer Series Paper

Golden Honey Designer Series Paper

After seeing the sketch below over at Sunday Stamps, I decided to give it a try!



I started with a base of Basic Black cardstock and added a layer on top of Whisper White cardstock that was embossed using the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.  Then I cut three strips of Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper (this is a FREE Sale-a-Bration gift with a $50 purchase) and punched each end using the Banner Triple Punch.  Before adhering the Whisper White panel down with Stampin’ Dimensionals ( I used a LOT), I wrapped our Solid Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the card three times and tied a bow.

The sentiment is from the stamp set, Honey Bee, and was stamped in Memento Ink.  It was cut out using a 2″ Circle Punch and then adhered to a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock that was cut using the Starburst Punch.  The cute little bee is also from the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper (FREE paper) and was cut out with the smaller bee in the Detailed Bee Dies. When you purchase the Honey Bee stamp set and the Detailed Bee Dies together, using the special bundle item number, you’ll save 10%!

To finish the card, I used a Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend to color in the stripes of the bee.

More Gift Card Holders

Last week I mentioned that I had a few birthdays coming up and that I would need some gift card holders.  I made small ones but the gift cards I purchased were attached to cardboard so I had to go back to the drawing board.  Here’s one I made for my sister using my Envelope Punch Board and a piece of yummy Cucumber Crush from the 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.

And one for my brother-in-law using Smoky Slate from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack.

Quick Tip:  I used the stamp set, Remembering Your Birthday, for the gift card holder above.  In the picture below, you can see the stamp I used in the lower right hand corner.  I only wanted Happy Birthday, not “friends and fun and presents too” so I just inked up Happy Birthday.  Usually when I do this, I have to cover the words I don’t want with a post it before I ink it, but the words are spaced far enough apart that it wasn’t necessary.  More mileage out of your stamp sets!

You can see this same style gift card holder from a previous post here.

(Note:  After writing and publishing this post, I took a shower – I do my BEST thinking in the shower.  Anyway, it dawned on me that the gift card in the previous post that I mention above is not the same as the one in this post.  I had to make adjustments for the larger size of the gift card.  My paper size was 8-1/4″ x 8-1/4″ and I did my first score and punch at 3-3/8.)
