Sweet as Honey Bees

New on the Heartfelt Creations Blog today. My Sweet as Honey bees card using the Sweet as Honey collection. To see the full collection head over to Heartfelt - Sweet as Honey Collection


Heartfelt Creations Products


Other Products Used


Bone folder, mini mister, white card for stamping and die cutting, White Linen Card, Black Card, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Distress Ink Antique Linen and Wild Honey, black marker, Copic Marker E51, Y38, E55, Diamond Stickles, Nuvo Crystal Glaze, Acetate.

Instructions


I like to do all my die cutting, stamping and coloring first. Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink stamp the “you are sweeter than honey” sentiment from the Sweet as Honey stamp set on yellow cardstock from the Backyard Blossoms paper pad, die cut with the second smallest hexagon die. Stamp the bees on white cardstock using the same set and same ink, color using Antique Linen all over first, then Wild Honey through the center, use a black marker for the stripes, die cut with coordinating die. Apply stickles to the wings and crystal glaze to the body, when dry lightly spray with the mini mister and bend up the wings.  Using your Memento Tuxedo Black ink also stamp the honey pot and honey dipper from the Honey Bee Bungalow stamp set on white cardstock.  Color your honey dipper in Antique Linen, then highlight with Copic Marker E55. Color your honey pot all over in the Antique Linen ink, highlight the burlap using your E55 Copic Marker, color the honey section in E51, then highlight in Y38, die cut with coordinating die, apply crystal glaze. When your bees are dry, I like to what I call float them, cut a strip of acetate approximately 1cm wide, you can trim the length later, fold over the top about 1 cm to create a right angle, adhere your bee to the front side so when laid flat your bee in risen, repeat with all three bees. Die cut 1 black hexagon using the 2nd largest die. Die cut 1 black honeycomb and trim down to size. 
Cut your card base using the white cardstock 8 1/2” x 6 1/8”. Fold your card in half, I like to run a bone folder over the spine of the card to give it a clean finish.   In the center of the card, cut out the honeycomb die. Select a yellow patterned cardstock from your Backyard Blossoms Paper Pad, trim down 5 ½” x 3 ½”. Cut 1 white mat 6 1/8” x 4 ¼”.


Now you have all your elements done you can assemble your card. Adhere your black honeycomb die cut so it shadows your honeycomb from the card front. Adhere your yellow mat behind the honeycomb dies. Adhere your white mat to the card inside to conceal your patterned card. Lightly ink around the white honeycomb on

the front using Antique Linen ink. Line up your bees where you want them, trim the strips so when they are adhered they will be concealed under the sentiment and the honey pot. Adhere in place. Using 3d adhesive adhere the black hexagon in the bottom right corner, make sure to cover your acetate strips, using 3d adhesive adhere the sentiment.  Adhere your honey dipper on the left edge of the black hexagon, just the dipper the handle will float free. Adhere you honey pot to the left making sure to cover your acetate strip. You can play around with the back bend of the acetate as to how high you want your bees to sit.
TIP: This is a great way to float a butterfly, flowers or anything your wish to look like it is floating in the air.

Heartfelt Creations Products






Other Products Used

Versafine- Olympia Green Ink, Distress- Peeled Paint Ink, Silver Edged sheer ribbon, Silver twine, Elizabeth Craft, Diamond ultrafine glitter, wire, hot glue gun.


Using your Leafy Accents Stamp set, stamp the larger leaf spray and the swirly leaf spray using the Versafine Olympia Green ink, then color using your stack and store daubers with the Distress Peeled Paint. Cut with coordinating die. Turn your leaves over and color the back fully with the Peeled Paint ink.  Lightly spray with your mini mister and shape using your Leafy Accents shaping mold. Using your designer dries white glue highlight the ends of your leaves and apply ultrafine diamond glitter. Allow to dry fully before assembling your headpiece.
Make a circle out of your wire to approximate head size, to measure you can tie a piece of ribbon around your head to gage size, do the same if the headpiece is for a child. Make sure you secure in place. Where the wire joins will become the back of the headpiece and the ribbon will conceal the join. Using your hot glue gun adhere your long pieces of ribbon first and then adhere your sheer bow and then your silver twine bow.


Choose your desired white stamens and cut the stem in half, curl your first stamen around the wire and the overhang run along the wire, put 1 or 2 stamens every inch until you have gone around the entire headpiece. Using your hot glue gun start to adhere the larger plain leaf spray with the stamped side facing inside the headpiece, repeat this until you have filled the center. On the outside of the headpiece adhere the swirly leaf spray with the stamped side facing out.  Until the headpiece is filled. Bend your stamens to the desired positions. You can also spray with a craft lacquer or use glossy accents if you wish the headpiece to be a little stiffer

Sweet as Honey - Splash of Blue

New on the Heartfelt Creations Blog today. My "Splash of Blue" card using the Sweet as Honey collection. To see the full collection head over to Heartfelt -  Sweet as Honey Collection


Heartfelt Creations Products

Other Products


Bone folder, heat gun, antistatic pad, white card for stamping and die cutting, White Linen Card, Versacolor white Pigment Ink, White Embossing Powder, Distress Ink Broken China, Versafine Ink Smokey Grey, turquoise blue rhinestone any brand.


I like to do all my die cutting, shaping and coloring first.  TIP:  Use an antistatic pad to wipe your vellum and cardstock first before stamping, it creates a static free environment so that only your stamped image is embossed.  When using a heat gun, don’t get too close to your cardstock or it will get a brown tinge.
Using the Butterfly Kisses stamp set, stamp the butterfly on white cardstock using your White Versacolor Ink, then cover completely in white embossing powder, shake of the excess and heat with your heat gun.  I have colored this image using Broken China.  Using the Sweet as Honey stamp set, stamp the honeycomb pattern twice across the card, once with the flowers facing up in the left corner and once down with the flowers in the bottom right corner on white cardstock using your White Versacolor Ink, then cover completely in white embossing powder, shake of the excess and heat with your heat gun.  I have lightly colored over this image using Broken China.
Using shades of blue from your Sweet as Honey paper pad, die cut 5 hexagons 3 lighter and 2 darker. Work out where your wish your hexagons to line up and using your Butterfly Kisses sentiment stamp, stamp along the bottom of your card, note that you want your bottom hexagon to sit in the first curve.


Cut your card base using the white cardstock 11” x 6 1/4”. Fold your card in half, I like to run a bone folder over the spine of the card to give it a clean finish.   Using a blue Patterned cardstock from the Backyard Blossoms Paper Pad, cut your front mat 6” x 5 1/4”.
  
Now you have all your elements done you can assemble your card. Adhere your front blue mat to your card front. Adhere your white card front. First adhere your bottom darker color hexagon in the curve of the sentiment. Using 3d adhesive adhere the 3 center hexagons. Adhere your last darker blue hexagon flat on top of the middle hexagons. Adhere your butterfly with only glue down the center so you can fold up the wings. Adhere a blue rhinestone on the top section of the butterfly.

Instructions





Die cut your Gift of Love box base die 4 times using white cardstock, you will have 4 box sides, cut the sides so you are left with only the bottom sections, see picture above.







Fold along the bone fold lines on your side panels. Use a bone folder to get a precise fold. Top flap bends back and the side flap bends towards you, repeat 4 times.  Glue or tape together (use art glitter glue or wonder tape) starting on the left and overlapping on each side so as to conceal all the joins to the center of your box.









Using white cardstock cut 3 cross bars 3 ½” x 3/4”. Fold in each end ½” so you are left with 2 ½’ in the center. Adhere your three crossbars spaced evenly inside your box. Using your Sweetheart Borders Die cut 4 strips, cut down to 2 ½”. Adhere under the flaps.





From your Sweet as Honey Paper Pad, die cut the below elements. I also cut 3 bees from the Sweet as Honey Paper Pad not pictured below. Decorate with stickles as crystal glaze as desired, let everything dry before you assemble the box.




Cut 4 acetate strips 2 ½” x 1”. Adhere these under the bungalows. Cut 1 acetate strips 1” x 4” for the largest maiden. Cut 2 strips acetate ½” x 4” for the remaining maidens. I like to use acetate so I can place my elements in just the right place.




Using the below panels cut 3 mats 2 ½” x 2 1/2”.  I have used the fairy and then I have used the top of panels, the tree line and sky. Adhere to the underside of the box. Later you will be adding a piece of honeycomb to the left and right sides.






Using the 3 tags cut 3 mats 2 ½” x 2 ½”. First tag I have trimmed the top and tag 2 and 3 I trimmed the bottom. Adhere to the front and side panels.





Using the below panels cut 1 mats 2 ½” x 2 7/8”.








From the off cut of the sky cut 1 mat 1” x 3” and using your Sweet as Honey set, stamp “you are Bee-utiful”, trim it to a tag with a top and tail.


Select a blue cardstock from the Sweet as Honey Paper Pad and cut 1 mat 2 ½” x 6 7/8”. This will be for the back of the box to conceal all the joins, strengthen the box and give you somewhere to write your message.


Using the Sun Kissed Fleur set stamp on white cardstock using Archival Jet-Black Ink. Using your Stack and Store daubers color your flowers with Cantaloupe Ink and your leaves with Peeled Paint ink. Shape with your Deluxe Flower Shaping
Kit. Apply varying size pearls to flower centers.


Select a yellow cardstock from your Backyard Blossoms Paper Pad and die cut 1 honeycomb piece using your Sweet as Honey die. Tear into 3 pieces, 1 for the front panel and 1 for the left and right undersides. Adhere the undersides.


From the picture below, you can see how each layer is adhered to create your pop-up box.
Front Panel – Adhere your honeycomb top right corner, apply glue to the tip of your tag and half way, hold in place at the tip, push up and hold the center and curl up the tail, adhere your Sun Kissed Fleur flowers and leaves.










Left Side – Using 3d adhesive adhere your honey pot, adhere your Sun Kissed flower and leaf




                                      





Layer 1 – Adhere your bungalow to the front wall of the box not the first crossbar. Adhere a bee with only glue down the center so you can fold up his wings.






Layer 2 – Adhere 1 bungalow to the right and 1 maiden to the left to the front of the first crossbar. Adhere 1 small Sun Kissed flower to the Maiden’s hand.





Layer 3 – Adhere 1 bungalow to the left and 1 honey pot with a bee coming out on acetate to the right to the front of the second crossbar. Adhere 1 small Sun Kissed flower to the top of the Bungalow.





Layer 4 – Adhere 1 bungalow to the right and 1 maiden to the left to the front of the third crossbar. 



Back Panel – Adhere the patterned mat to the bottom, adhere the sentiment above. Adhere your largest fairy up the back. Adhere your bee to the left only with adhesive in the center and bend up his wings. Adhere your Sun Kissed flowers and leaves to the right side.





Back of box – Adhere the blue mat to conceal the back in. Using 3d adhesive adhere your sentiment. Adhere your bee to the left only with adhesive in the center and bend up his wings.  
  


This is what I love about a pop-up box, it lays flat, so when sending your box, you can create an envelope or bag, it will lay flat when flattened to the left or right; the layers will overlap to sit flat.
  


Hope you were inspired by my pop up box
