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!
