CARD DETAILS:
For my card today I chose to use the gorgeous Blooming Bunch floral stamp set. I began by stamping out the image onto watercolor paper and then colored the blooms in using Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens. Once the paper was dry I fussy cut the image out.

The next thing I did is going to sound a bit crazy... but since I wanted to use WOW! Embossing Glitters today and didn't realize I needed a bonding powder (can you tell I'm still a newbie at this), so I had to figure out a different way to do things. Leave it to me to make things harder! Anyways, my solution was to use a quicky glue pen and trace over the lines of each image that I wanted to add a specific color too. This made it easier to control exactly where I wanted the specific colors of glitter to go. Then I would use my heat gun to melt the glitter and set the glue, which I know your not supposed to do with glitter but it turned out beautifully resulting in a rough glittered texture! 

For the leaves I used Green Glitz, on the orange peony I used Sunset Boulevard, for the roses I used Red Glitz,  and for the yellow peony, I used the Pearl Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter.

Check out all the pretty sparkly detail!

I then popped this beautiful Blooming Bunch onto a panel I had die cut using the frame from the Dotted Patterns Set 3 Die set and then stenciled on the dots using the Bubbles Stencil. To the bottom right corner, I stamped out the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Birthday Greetings set and then added the hello which was heat embossed in Metallic Gold Rich SF Embossing powder. And that pretty much finishes off this sparkly card!

Christmas Anemone Cards | The 30 Day Coloring Challenge with Honey Bee Stamps


Hello my friends! 

Today I am back with a set of Christmas Anemone Cards. If you have been following me on Instagram you will know that I have been trying to participate this month in Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Well, today is day 17 and  Honey Bee Stamps is acknowledging the Challenge on the HBS Blog, so make sure you stop by there to be inspired by the design team's creations. 

Christmas Anemone Cards | The 30 Day Coloring Challenge with Honey Bee Stamps by ilovedoingallthingscrafty.com

I began these cards by coloring some of the images from the Winter Anemone Set. They were colored in using Copic Markers (sorry did not keep track of the colors I used). I then cut out the images with the coordinating Winter Anemone dies. For a complete list of supplies see the thumb links below.

For this card, I used one of the Stencils from the Plaid Background set to add glimmer paste to the panel. I then stamped and heat embossed the sentiments from the Fa La La set and die cut the merry with the coordinating die, and for the Christmas one, I used the banner builder dies to create the banner.  I then popped the pieces onto the background panel with foam tape and finished off the center of the flowers with white pen details and glossy accents.

This card below was done the same way but using a different stencil from the Plaid Background set and then used the A2 Scalloped Frames to die cut the panel. I then added the die cut Holly Jolly sentiment on to the panel and stamped out the remainder of the sentiment on the card front.

This final card was done once again with a different stencil from the Plaid Background set and this time I only used the berries and leaves from the Winter Anemone set as a pop of color to the die cut Jingle All the Way sentiment.
