Friendship Watercolor Card

Hello happy crafters and card makers. Today I am here to share a fun watercolor technique I learned while taking a class with the Waffle Flower team at Creativation! 

To achieve this soft water color floral background I scribbled ink from some Zig Art & Graphic Twin markers onto my Water Media mat. ( I will talk about this amazing mat at the end of my blog post. )  I spritzed the ink with water and then stamped a few Spring Blossoms from Honey Bee stamps.  The paper I used is smooth Bristol and I did not wet my paper first. 

After stamping out my blooms I picked up some color with my water brush pen and colored in the blooms is a messy water color fashion. 

  I did the same thing with some pretty greens for the leaves on my card. 

I took a long cotton swap and dipped into the paint to add a few dots as an accent. I also paint flicked a few splatters across my card. 

I just love adding a few little bees for embellishment, so I stamped out a few from this Bee Hive stamp set and then die cut them to add to my finished card.  I always color the wings with a clear star jelly roll pen for some Sparkle.

I stamped the sentiment using the HBS Friendship sentiment set This stamp set is the perfect addition to your card making collection.  So many wonderful sentiments to add to your cards. 

To complete my card I layered some pretty papers and foam mounted the card panel 
for some dimension.

Winter Anemone cards using Honey Bee stamps

The Winter Anemone is by far my most favorite set from the New release by Honey Bee Stamps!

  This card was mounted on to a stenciled Kraft card stock base. I used the Geometric background stencil  inked with Candied apple and Mowed lawn Distress inks to make the background. 
 I colored the images with Zig Clean color real brush markers. 

 This Winter Anemone floral can be colored in so many ways.  I love the white on a bold background. 

AND how about this Red!! Its stunning.  
This is an everyday card that can be created for any occasion!

Dearly Loved New release from Honey Bee Stamps

Good morning. 
Today I am sharing a few projects I created with 
the Newest Release stamps and dies from Honey Bee Stamps 
Now available in the Honey Bee stamps shop

Here is a Christmas layout I just created in my family album. 
( Yes I am still working on my 2017 album )  

I used the Sweet Silent Night stamp set along with the matching Honey Cut dies to create the embellishments on my layout.  I colored the deer with Zig Clean Color real brush markers. 
I created the Deerly LOVED title using the Deerly Loved honey cut dies,  stamping the LOVED word onto a banner flag and stapled it to my page.  I stamped and die cut the tree onto some pretty patterned paper and cut the 2017 using the  BEE BOLD numeric Honey Cut dies

What I love about this New Silent Night stamp set and the matching dies is that you can use it other than for Christmas or winter, you can create a Deerly loved card or crafty project anytime of the year. The little wrapped gifts could be colored for any occasion, Also the accompanying critters and florals are sweet for Birthday or Mothers day cards too. The possibilities are endless. 

 Here's another card I created with this set.  I could color this deer a million times... LOL 

For this card I used the Square Window Trio Honey Cut die set
stamping a cute icon from the Silent Night stamp set in each window.  Cutting the Merry title I used the Fa-La-La dies  and matching Fa-la-la stamp set

 This adorable bunny and Tree are from the Silent Night stamps and matching dies.
with the holy night title stamped using the Rejoice stamp set 

And for my last project,  Using the Rejoice stamp set 
I painted a wooden coaster with some white distress paint and then stamped the floral image and Joy to the World saying onto the wood and then colored with with my Zig clean color brush pens. 

  BEE sure to visit the Honey Bee blog and BEE inspired by all the projects created by the talented Honey Bee team.

Fall Hugs

Happy Fall Y'all!!

Today I am sharing a fun fall greeting card I made using a couple of my favorite Honey Bee Stamps. 
Happy Fall Y'all Sunflowers and the leaves from the Bushel and a Peck set. 

I created a warm fall sky background using some distress inks. I used Weathered wood and Antique Linen blended onto some Distress Specialty Stamping paper.  It has a smooth finish perfect for blending Distress inks. 

After stamping and coloring my images with some Alcohol ink markers I die cut them using the matching Honey Cut dies. 

I used a few words from the "Hey Pumpkin" and "Gather Together" stamp sets to create my sentiment.  Honey Bee has so many wonderful sentiments stamps that blend well together to make the perfect sayings on all your handmade cards.  I attached my flowers and leaves with a bit of jute string and 3D foam tape to add some dimension and detail. 

Thanks for stopping by today. 
Until next time
