3D Thursday: Mason Jar Beehive and Pen Set

Happy Thursday! This week it’s my turn to create for 3D Thursday! 🙂

I follow a lot of different craft sites and one thing I’ve noticed is that bees are definitely a huge trend right now. There are LOTS of posts about beehives and bee related crafts, especially now that Spring is right around the corner! I like to put my own twist on popular projects using Stampin’ Up products, so I made a mason jar beehive with three flower pens:

The base of this project is a pint sized mason jar. I covered the jar with a thin layer of Multipurpose Glue and then used the 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim to wrap the jar. I let the jar sit overnight and dry completely before completing it the next day. Once the whole project was finished, I filled the jar with glass vase gems (not shown) to add some weight and give the finished pens something to rest on while in the jar!

You can make your own set using my FREE project sheet, available below! The sheet contains step by step, full color instructions, along with a complete supply list of everything you need. You can download the sheet HERE, or by clicking the image below:

This project is sweet and useful, and was A LOT of fun to create. I hope you’ll consider making one of your own!

Thank you for visiting today! Please contact me if you have any questions regarding my project. I would be happy to help!

Rooted in Nature Meets Daisy Delight

When it was announced at OnStage in April that Blackberry Bliss was making a return, I got super excited!  I absolutely love this color, and I was really sad when it retired a few years back!  This is the first chance I’ve had to use it, and I definitely wanted to go with something bold to showcase it.  So I made a large daisy with the Daisy Delight stamp set and cut it out with the Daisy Punch.  To get the fullness of the daisy, I stamped and punched TWO and then layered them.  I also paired the finished daisy with embossed leaves made with the Nature’s Roots Framelits (more on that a little later!)

The very first thing I did when making this card, was to finely spatter Blackberry Bliss ink onto the top layer using an Aqua Painter.  It’s hard to see in the pics, but it gives a nice bit of extra detail that’s actually really subtle!  While that dried, I made and assembled the daisy and leaves.  The leaves were made using two different dies from the Nature’s Roots Framelits.  The first is an embossing die that embossed the detail of the leaves without actually cutting them out.  The second die does the actual cutting.  I used Mossy Meadow cardstock for the leaves (another returning favorite!) as I think it looks so nice with the Blackberry Bliss!  Here’s a little bit of a better shot of the daisy and leaves up close:

The detail on the leaves is so pretty!  I also stamped the sentiment in Mossy Meadow to coordinate with the leaves and the middle layer of the card.  The sentiment is from the Rooted in Nature stamp set, which is available as a bundle with the framelits for 10% off.  (Of course, you can get both items separately as well!)

 

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Blackberry Bliss card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Mossy Meadow middle layer:  3-3/8 x 4-5/8 inches

Very Vanilla top layer: 3-1/4 x 4-1/2 inches

Daisy:  2-1/2 inches in diameter

Leaves: 1-3/4 x 1-3/4 inches (approximately)

 

Other products used on this card include Linen Thread and Iridescent Sequins!

Another Daisy Delight Thank You

Here is another card we made last weekend at my World Card Making Day event!  This one has the same layout as the one I made for my customer thank yous for September.  You can take a peek at that card here.  For this one, I just switched up the colors and materials a bit!  This one features Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist as the main colors, along with Whisper White and a touch of Daffodil Delight.  I used the Daisy Punch to make the daisy, but on this card, I left the petals completely white.  The Daisy Delight stamp set has a stamp that you can use to stamp lines on the petals to give them a bit of a textured look, but for this card, I chose to leave them plain. The background of the card was made with the Polka Dot Basics Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The thank you sentiment is from the Daisy Delight stamp set, which can be purchased as a bundle with the Daisy Punch for a savings of 10%!

Thanks for checking in today!  Have a great weekend!
