Stampin’ Up! Honeycomb Happiness Thanks

Today, I am sharing a card from the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  

Honeycomb Happiness by Card-iology by Jari

The colors for my card were inspired by the Fab Friday #82 Challenge.  Head over to see all of the creations and play along!

I saw a collar fold card on Pinterest and thought it would make a fun card for this challenge.  See it here.  There are also some directions for making the fold for the front of the card.  I will also explain below. I did not plan to make this card exactly the way it turned out, but had to make a quick change because of a boo-boo!  I am so thankful I found a way to salvage it!  The oval banner was a life saver—in my steps below, I will explain the right way to go about adding the sentiment! 🙂

I just love Honeycomb Happiness, not only because it is free during Sale-a-Bration, but also because of all 6 stamps that are included.  Three are images and three are phrases.  I also love how this ice cream cone pairs with the Birthday Bouquet DSP, don’t you?

Tips for making the card:

  1. Stamp the ice cream cone with Basic Black onto Soft Suede, Blushing Bride, and Pool Party.
  2. Cut out the whole Soft Suede ice cream cone, cut out only the ice cream on the other 3.
  3. Stamp the top flavor with the sprinkles stamp from the Sprinkles of LIfe stamp set in Soft Suede.
  4. Attach the flavors of ice cream onto the Soft Suede cone with multipurpose glue.
  5. Cut a panel of Birthday Bouquet DSP (ice cream cones) 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ ; at the half way point, (2 3/4″), make a slit with the trimmer 1 1/2″ in toward the center, and fold and crease the paper back.
  6. Decide where you want to add the sentiment BEFORE adding the DSP folded panel to the front of your card, and stamp it.  Because the fold is thicker than the base card, my stamp wobbled and made the image blur, so I quickly came up with an alternate idea.  Especially since I had already folded and glued down the decorative panel!
  7. Then, glue or snail the folded DSP to the base-I used Whisper White Thick cardstock.
  8. Because of my boo-boo, I stamped another sentiment onto a piece of Blushing Bride and punched it out with a scallop oval punch, then attached it with dimensionals.
  9. Attach the ice cream with dimensionals, too.
  10. Finish the inside as desired

Here is how I decided to finish mine:

I used one of  the sentiments from the Another Thank You stamp set and stamped it in Soft Suede ink.  The top and bottom of the panel were trimmed with Mint Macaron Washi Tape.

Honeycomb Happiness is such a cute set of stamps, and the chick is really versatile-not just for Easter, but would be really cute for all sorts of Easter paper projects.  Party Pants has so many perfect sayings and it coordinates with the Balloon Bouquet Punch (which I used).  Click here to see the newest flyer for Sale-a-Bration and the newest free products!

Making this card takes no time, either, which is a plus when you need a birthday card in a flash!  I stamped the chick from Honeycomb Happiness first onto a panel of Whisper White with Basic Black ink, then again on a panel of Crushed Curry.  I snipped out the Crushed Curry chick, cutting off the feet, and attached the body to the Whisper White panel with glue, then colored in the feet and beak with my Tangelo Twist Stampin’ Write marker.  I stamped the sentiment from Party Pants onto a piece of Mint Macaron with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed it with White embossing powder.  Once cool and set, I punched out the balloon using the Balloon Bouquet Punch.

I used a fun stamp from Watercolor Words for the inside sentiment and added some Mint Macaron Designer Washi Tape.  And, for fun, I decorated the envelope front with the balloon image from the Stampin’ Up! Party Pants stamp set.
