Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop – March 2022

Hello Crafty Friends!

It’s so great to see y’all back here again. Can you believe it’s already half way through March? It’s a little hard to believe here, since we just got some more snow and it’s only 25 degrees. Hopefully, by the time you read this, it’ll be feeling a little more spring like.

This month’s challenge for the Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop was animals and punches. I don’t know if you’d technically say the honey bees count as an animal, but I hadn’t used my dies yet and I wanted to finally break them in.

I love the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle, and adding the Honeybee Home bundle to it just seemed right. Now, I don’t know if bees are attracted to sunflowers, but I’m pretty sure they should be.

I stamped the large image on the Basic White and ran the edges on the Soft Suede ink pad. I die cut out the bees and the small sunflowers before stamping their images on the cut out pieces, adding color to the flowers with Blending Brushes. I started with the Bumblebee In Color Ink pad, working from the inside out. I added the Crumb Cake to the center. I did the same for the larger sunflower image. I colored the bees with the blender pens dipped in the Bumblebee as well. I finished off the card with the Tailored Tag punch and added the Gilded Gems for a little bit of bling.

So, I hope you liked this months card! Now, have fun finishing the rest of the hop!

Until next time, stay crafty Friends!

    All sorts of bees are attracted to sun flowers since there is a lot of pollen available. Bumbles are spotted more frequently on my sunflowers but the honeybees visit too!
