Oh Christmas Bee!

I'm so excited to be a part of Honey Bee's 12 days of Christmas celebration! Melissa and Lisa are two of my favorite people on earth. If you can spare a prayer or two, Lisa and her family could use them right now as well!

Melissa's images are just so happy and cute, and I love all things bee!

I sneak peeked this card in yesterday's video - the technique I used with the Gel Press petites is so fun for building backgrounds, and the hexie one is just perfect for this little bee!

Oh Christmas Bee is SO cute and is the size that's perfect - big enough to color and BEE the star of the show. I cut him out with the matching dies and colored him with Copics. The background is done with Honey Bee's Hexi Patterns layering stencils, paint and my Gel Press hexi petite. The technique video for that is below my card.

The video for this background technique is here and all supplies are below. Do you have traditions for the 12 days of Christmas? If so, leave them in the comments!

  1. Wow, I am glad to have found your blog! I am a bit off the beat especially at Christmas time. I like red and greens, don't get me wrong. But, there are so many other colors we could use to celebrate this holiday. I have found, that, you too, use non traditional colors. YEAH! Plus I color outside the lines, and I try everything with All my crafting products. Thank you, Thank you, for having a blog that suits ME!

  2. Bee still my heart! I love this little guy - such a cute, alternative to the other Christmas images we see this time of year. ♥

  3. So very cute! Loving the happy yellow. Thinking of you today and whispering prayers for you and also Lisa and her family. Hugs.

  4. Your card is so bright and happy, the palette is a welcome change from the more traditional. A gel press is one of the top items on my wish list for 2020, I've seen so many fun techniques with this tool. We don't really have traditions, but we do try to cook our fave foods for Christmas day.

  5. ... visiting from Honey Bee and had to say ...

    LOVE your SWEET image and sentiment, such a FUN and FABULOUS non-traditional design that is sure to make EVERYONE SMILE :)
    THANK YOU for sharing and INSPIRING!
