Recap first 15 days - The Daily Marker 30 day coloring challenge



 Good morning crafty friends.  

Today I am sharing an up close look at my projects from the last 15 days playing along with The Daily Marker 30 day coloring challenge. 

If you live under a crafty rock and have never heard of the 30 day coloring challenge please follow this link to Kathy's blog and read all about it.  

Coloring is so therapeutic and relaxing for me I love playing with all kinds of coloring mediums and coloring of stamped images.  A few of my favorite stamp companies are Honey Bee stamps, Lawn Fawn & Trinity stamps.  They are all a bit different and offer a huge variety of stamps with matching dies to make card making super easy. 








 Check back in with me at the end of the month to see my next 15 coloring projects. 

Until then,

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! 


BEE sure to buzz on over to the Honey Bee Stamps Blog to see the entire New release inspiration and keep on buzzing to the Honey Bee Stamps shop to purchase any of the New stamps, dies and stencils available now.

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.

 I arranged the flowers in the Bushel Basket that is also colored with alcohol markers. Mounting some of the blooms

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

My Tribe Pocket Scrapbook layout

 Happy Saturday!  I know most of us women have those special friends we consider part of our Tribe. 
It's those girlfriends who are there for us through the good times and the not so good. Always there to lend a helping hand and to listen when we need to talk or cry....  Spending a quite evening around the fire pit having a glass of wine....or 3 ( but whose counting?! ) To me, Lisa is that kind of friend.  We do not get to spend a lot of girl time together these days, but when we do, Its always a good time. 

Well enough chatting... how about some scrapbooking? 

The New stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps "My Tribe" is one we could all use in our stamp collection.  This was a fun stamp set to water color and cut out with the coordinating Honey cut dies
I really like making my own scrapbook die cuts to embellish my page.  Having the matching dies really makes this a lot easier.  






I used the Distress Ink watercoloring technique  to color all my stamped and die cut images that I wanted to use for making my own embellishments.  


I am really happy with how well the coordinated with my chosen scrapbook paper. I used the G45 Bohemian Bazaar collection for this layout. 

Every crafty projects needs a little Bling.  These fun sequin mixes by HBS are perfect. 
I could never survive with out my Jewel picker when working with sequins. LOL
