Welcome Spring with Lots of Honey Bee Stamps

The whole team at Honey Bee Stamps is coming together to celebrate the much beloved 30 Day Coloring Challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin and her blog The Daily Marker!

Melissa started us off by sharing an amazing floral card in her blog post HERE! Be sure to check back here on the Honey Bee Stamps Blog as each team member will be sharing different coloring styles, mediums, and a few tips and tricks along the way.

I'm so excited to be sharing my project for today which includes lots of coloring in celebration of The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin! Since I'm currently dreaming of springtime, I've included lots and lots of florals from the Zen Floral Stamp Set, as well as the sweet bunny from the Spring Honey Buddies set.

The Bunny Buddy is a perfect fit in the newly released Celebration Box. His little paws are cut when you use the coordinating dies, so you are able to lift them so they can peek out of the box.

All of the images were stamped onto Bristol card stock using my MISTI stamping tool and Versafine black ink. This type of ink is waterproof and perfect for using with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. After stamping, I always make sure the ink is dry before starting to color. When all the images were colored, I die cut them using the coordinating Zen Floral Dies. I arranged the florals all over the card tucking them in here and there surrounding the box and bunny. The greeting was stamped using two Honey Bee stamp sets. The "welcome" stamp comes from the newly released Welcome Baby Stamp Set, and I spelled out the word SPRING with the help of the Hand Lettered Alpha Stamps.

The making of this card as well as a quick demo using the Celebration Box Dies and Stamp Set can be found in the video below. Please check it out and don't forget to stop back by tomorrow when another member of the Honey Bee Stamps team will be taking on the 30 Day Coloring Challenge!

  1. Hi Kelly, I adore this card. The palette you used, the clouds, the way you used all of the different elements, it came out fabulous. One of my most favorite cards! Thanks for sharing the video too! -Michelle Daigle
