Hello Everyone. Hope you are all well. It has been forever since my last posting.
I have not been crafting as much as I normally would like to. A couple of factors have impacted this. One is that I have recently retired and have been getting a few things done that related to this. The other is as I had previously may have mentioned I am in the middle of a home renovation project and have been displaced from my craft room. My craft supplies are packed up and have been moved to other parts of the house.
It has been hard to keep the mojo going during this time despite having a small corner in my great room set up to craft. Given I have to go to several place to collect supplies to make anything it hasn’t been ideal. But I am happy to report the floor refinishing is finally going to happen soon. If all goes as planned I will be back setting up my craft room again in a very short time.
Sharing this recent project I made for gifts I made as a thank you to the few who worked for me. They made it easy to do all that we had to accomplish. I will miss them but look forward to having more time to create. I will be linking it to the challenges below.
On with the design and ingredients.
Paper: Neenah 80# and Green Card Stock.
Ink/coloring medium: copics and Gina K amalgam black.
Stamps: Simon Says Stamp spring flowers 4 set. Hero arts Daisy and Bugs stamp and cuts for the bee and sentiment.
Dies: matching dies to both stamp sets.
Embellishments: Wink of Stella on the flower center and bee wings.
The tags have a couple of layers to make them a bit more sturdy. I found these great journals for the gifts and paired them with some honey and a candle. So when making the gift tag I thought a flower with a bee would be perfect.
