Honeycomb Happiness: Sale-a-bration International Blog Hop

Thank you so much for joining me today on this hop around the world! You may be just starting here, or you've come from my very talented bestie, Shannon Lane. However you've arrived...welcome! I've joined forces with some of the top demonstrators and artists within Stampin' Up!, and we are going to whisk you away on a fabulous Sale-a-bration blog hop! You're currently in Calgary, AB Canada, but this hop is international baby! 
My card today features the brand new Sale-a-bration stamp set, Honeycomb Happiness. I fell totally in love with this chubby little bird just as soon as I saw him, and was eager to get him stamped and watercoloured! 
Want to learn how you can earn this adorable stamp set for FREE? I have all the info for you HERE.
Watercolour Tip!
  • Remember to add some darker areas that are more saturated with colour, as this will provide depth to your image. You should have darker spots where there would be natural shading in your image.

Looking for the perfect branch for that little birdie? Look no further than the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies.
See that little leaf sprig on the right? Simply alter it a little with your paper snips and you have a branch for your birdie to perch on. 

Thank you so much for joining me today. Don't forget to hop around the world and visit my very talented friends! Next up is the always amazing Susan Wong.

When you shop in my Canadian Online Shop during the month of January ($35 min. purchase) you'll receive a bonus PDF & video project tutorial! This month's project focus is the new Birthday Blooms stamp set.
