1 Stamp, 3 Ways with Tammy!

I am so excited to introduce a new blog feature with Design Team member, Tammy Stark! Every month she will be featuring one focal stamp set, and showing you three fun and unique ways to use that set!

Hi Friends! It’s Tammy with an exciting new monthly feature called, 1 Stamp 3 Ways. Today, I am featuring the bee from Bugs and Kisses.

Slimline Card

The first card I created is a slimline card, measuring 3 ½ X 8 ½”. This card features a fun beehive, that I will show you how to create using Lawn Fawn dies.

To begin, I cut a panel of white cardstock to 3 ¼ X 8 ¼”, and ink blended with Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China, and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide inks. I splattered some water and Mermaid Lagoon thinned with water with a paintbrush onto my background and set aside to dry.

I stamped, colored and die cut images from the following sets:
Bugs and Kisses (bees)/ Coordinating Dies
A Bug Deal (trees and leaves)/ Coordinating Dies
Butterfly Kisses (clouds, butterflies, bee trails)/ Coordinating Dies

Copic Colors:
Yellows: Y00, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y35
Pinks: R000, R00, R30, R20, R22
Greens: YG01, YG03, YG25, YG17
Browns: E30, E31, E34

Creating the Beehives

I made one large, and two small beehives for the cards.

To begin, using the Large Stitched Oval Stackables, I cut two ovals (second to largest) from No. 2 Pencil cardstock. I also cut two yellow ovals using the smallest oval from the set, and one from Black Licorice. The small half oval shown in the picture was cut from the Tiny Gift Box Cat Add-On.

Here, you will see how easily the beehives were to piece together! I cut the ovals in half, then cut strips from the other half. Each piece was inked with Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink, then pieced onto the oval half. To add a bit of interest to the beehive, I splattered a bit of thinned down black acrylic paint before placing the black halved ovals. Once my beehives were done, I inked the edges again to add more depth.

Finishing the slimline card

Now that you have your beehives completed, we can finish up the first card. I attached my ink blended background to a white card base, measuring 3 ½ X 8 ½”. Then I did a quick layout of my card before gluing anything down, and stamped the bee trails with the Jet Black ink pad. Next, I glued the large beehive onto the card, and then began layering on the other elements, attaching with foam squares for dimension.

To make the smaller beehive look like it is hanging from the tree branch, I drew a black line with a Sharpie (and a ruler), then attached the beehive with foam squares. For the “Bee happy” title, I cut the word BEE from white and black cardstock using the Oliver’s Stitched ABCs, and layered on top of each other, just slightly offset. Using the Scripty Happy die, I cut it twice using the pink paper from the Spiffy Speckles petite paper pack. I lightly inked the bottom with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide before layering and adding it to my card. To finish up my card, I centered the “BEE” title right above the “happy” and attached to my card using foam tape.

Scalloped Frame Card

For the next card, I started by cutting the Mae Remix paper from the Hello Sunshine Remix petite paper pack, using the largest rectangle from the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables. It was attached to a white A2 card base. Next, I cut a white scalloped rectangle using the Scalloped Rectangle Stackables (third from largest). Then I used the large stitched rectangle stackables again to cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with the second to largest die in the set. The background was inked just like the slimline card and layered on the white scalloped rectangle, then on the patterned paper.

The following sets were stamped, colored and die cut:
Bugs and kisses/ Coordinating Dies
Fairy friends ( flowers)/ Coordinating Dies
Gleeful gardens (flowers, tall grass)/ Coordinating Dies
Butterfly kisses (bee trails)
Offset Sayings: Birthday

Next, I cut a Grassy Border from Bristol paper, and ink blended with Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn distress oxide, and attached to my background using foam tape. I stamped the bee trails, and then began arranging my images onto my card, using foam squares for the bees.  

Then I used Oliver’s Stitched ABCs to cut the word “BEE” twice (once each from No. 2 Pencil and Black Licorice cardstock). I layered the yellow on top of the black, just slightly offset, and then attached the letters to the card. I stamped the word “day” from Offset Sayings: Birthday in Black Licorice ink, and finished my card by white embossing the sentiment on black cardstock  and cut it out with the Everyday Sentiment Banners, snipping off one end before attaching it to my card.

Foursquare Backdrop Card

For my final card, I cut a piece of Bristol smooth card stock A2 size, and ink blended with Mermaid Lagoon, Broken China, and Tumbled Glass, in the same manner as the other cards. I cut white cardstock using the Foursquare Backdrop: Portrait and placed it on top of my inked background, using foam tape for dimension. Then this was attached to a white A2 card base.

Next, I stamped, colored, and die cut images from the following sets:
Bugs and kisses/ coordinating dies
A Bug Deal (trees,leaves)/ coordinating dies
Butterfly kisses ( bee trails, clouds)
Happy happy happy (day)

The bee trails were stamped with black ink, and I drew a black line using a Sharpie for my beehive before adding my stamped images. Next, I added all the darling elements to my card, using foam squares for dimension. The word “BEE” was cut from the Spiffy Speckles petite paper pack and Black Licorice cardstock using Oliver’s Stitched ABCs. I lightly inked the bottom of the pink letters with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink before layering on top of the black letters, just slightly offset. I stamped the day sentiment from the Happy Happy Happy set in Black Licorice ink, and lined up my die cut letters to attach to my card.  Using the Scripty Happy die, I die cut it twice from Black Licorice cardstock and attached it at a slight angle to complete my card.

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you all enjoyed the first post for the 1 Stamp, 3 Ways feature! What stamp set would you like to see featured next? Leave a comment for us and be on the lookout for an Instagram Stories poll in the near future!

To Bee or Not to Bee Blog Hop!

Happy Monday Lawn Fawn friends! Today we are participating in a fun To Bee or Not to Bee blog hop to celebrate World Bee Day and to raise awareness of the importance of bees!

Elena has created the most delightful Happy Bee Day party decor! Be sure to make it all the way to the end of the post, there are giveaway prizes to be won and lots of wonderfully talented crafters to visit on this blog hop! For more information about bees, World Bee Day and the blog hop please visit Milka’s blog, click HERE.

For the banner, Elena kept it simple using Stitched Party Banners and some Black Licorice and Sticky Note cardstock! She used some Black Tie cord to string the banners together!

She patterned the cake topper on a letter board design! She used a scoring board to score the lines every half inch on a standard card size panel of Sticky Note cardstock. Then she framed it with a white Stitched Rectangle Frame and added Cole’s ABCs letters! I love how she attached some happy bees with acetate to look like they are buzzing around the cake! So adorable!

The party favors are Tiny Gift Boxes with some special bee details! Strips of black cardstock were added to the yellow boxes. The faces are from Tiny Gift Box Deer Add-On (Elena carefully trimmed off the deer ears),

For the sweet little wings, Elena started with the small butterfly from Layered Butterflies die cut from vellum. Then she trimmed them with scissors into the shape of wings. She also added little bee stingers using the whipped cream die from Woodland Critter Huggers Winter Add-on die set; such a clever idea!

Here are the components of the party favor boxes! They are listed in the supply list at the end of today’s post.

To decorate the drink bottles, Elena wrapped the bottles in black cardstock. She die cut a Stitched Circle and colored the edge with a yellow Copic marker and stamped the sentiment which is a mix of “happy” and “day” from Tiny Tag Sayings: Birthday and “bee” from Bugs and Kisses! The happy little bee is also from Bugs and Kisses while the bee trail is from Toadally Awesome.

Thank you so much, Elena for creating this amazing party for World Bee Day!
