Sending Lots of Hugs


Hello, I am back again today with another Honey Bee Stamps Coneflower card. I am still working on perfecting the shades of color on the flower by inking up either white or colored cardstock. I have another card where I am very happy with the way the flower turned out, but this one isn’t so bad. I hope to put that flower on a card very soon. Kinda wish I hadn’t put on the white dots in the center of the flower, oh well!

My card was inspired by the great color challenge going on over at The Color Throwdown. DT member Susie picked a great one that caught my attention right away. Check it out below. A lot of the supplies for this card were leftovers in my bits and boxes that I am determined to use up or organize this week. Do you have any organizational plans in the New Year when it comes to crafting? I just got finished labeling the stencils that I have in a 3 ringed binder. I am really happy about that! No more having to jog my memory on whose it is or what it’s called, it also makes putting them back easier. The binder is quite full and it appears I have an addiction to stenciling. LOL

Card Details: Coneflower-Honey Bee Stamps inked on light yellow cardstock, Hugs die -MFT, Sending lots of-Gina K., Scalloped Rectangles-MFT, Border Punch is from Martha Stewart, Leaves are from Sizzix and embossed with a dotted EF, Nuvo drops, Inked up the flower with some Oxide Inks and a bit of Copics, White Gel Pen. DSP is a great pack from Pink and Main.

Thanks for coming by as I appreciate your visits! Take care, Nanc’

  5. Another beautiful coneflower card, Nancy. I can’t tell you how many times I ink and layer the flower until I’m happy with the coloring. I organized my stencils the same way a long time ago but have added so many others I may have to get a bigger binder. And I don’t know if they come any bigger. lol

  6. Your coneflower is so gorgeous in these colors! Ironically I just came from browsing on the Honeybee website! Thanks so much for joining us at CTD!
