Nesting – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0029_edited-19

Hello there,

Spring is a great time to create a lovely bird nest card to bless someone with.  I took the liberty of creating a fun dimensional die cut nest for this project.

DSC_0027

Just look how well this unusual color combo I came up with works together (Crushed Curry, Crumb Cake, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive and Pool Party), just delightful!

Little Blue Boat – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0023_edited-33

Hello there,

Today’s project was put together using the direct to paper technique, so fun!  The stamped boat image may be overlooked in your stamp stash because it comes in the Swirly Bird stamp set.  What? how does a boat fit in with the name of that set, Swirly Bird?  But it is the cutest little boat and comes together in pieces so it is super easy to make each piece of the boat whatever color you want.  I stayed with cool blues today.

Dragonflies at Play – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0030

Hello there,

Sometimes I have so much fun with a stamp set that my mind starts whirling with new scenes to create with it.  Such as the case of the Touches of Texture stamp set that I used on my last project and was still on my desk this morning.  So, with a fresh scene inside of my head from Monday, I created today’s card.

Photos don’t do a project justice sometimes.  The dragonflies and the water have a super wonderful sparkle to them after I used the Clear Wink of Stella brush pen, #141897 over them and the camera just doesn’t pick it up well.  You will need to use your imagination, sorry.  But in real life it has a shimmery sparkly lovely look.  Well worth the two seconds it took to put it on the card.  Have you used it yet?

Life Has Been Buzzy!

IMG_0027

Like I don’t have enough hobbies and animals to take care of, I decided I must try to do my part and save the honey bee too.  :)  Due to pesticides and other things we are losing honey bee colonies at an alarming rate and without them, who will pollinate a great deal of our food?

I started on this crusade last Autumn.   Joined my community Beekeeper’s Association and then attended day long classes to learn more.  I also found a mentor at the Beekeeper’s meetings who has been a blessing, so much to learn.

IMG_0023

Students at the beekeeping class were encouraged to not wear gloves when working the bees.  :)  This takes nerves of steel at first but then you find it not so bad.  It slows you down witch helps the bees not to be nerves.

IMG_0021

No, this is not an alien, it’s me all geared up at class.  :)  Crazy Right?

I spent the Winter pouring over Beekeeping catalogs, yes there is such a thing, and I purchased my hives and other necessary tools and protective clothing.

IMG_00272

Well Spring finally arrived and it’s time to start new colonies.  These are my hives right after I installed a 3 pound package of bees in each one.  Just envision that.  Now, just how many bees do you think that is?   Well, it is around 9,000 bees per hive!  That’s just to start the colonies.

I was quite nervous, but pulled my big girl panties up and put all those bees in the hives by myself.    I’ve been asked if I filmed this process, HECK NO!  I had to put every bit of my brain power into what I was doing.  Remember this was my first time.

You might want to know why there are different colors on my hives, well, bees see color and it helps them distinguish  which hive is theirs.    They don’t see red, orange and purple as true colors they see them as black so I chose So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz (it’s a sickness to see all colors as Stampin’ Up! colors) to paint a couple of my hive boxes in.  You really don’t want your bees bouncing from one hive to another so they don’t spread viruses, mites, etc. from one colony to another.

I am happy to report the bees are doing well so far.  Hopefully we will see lots of bee babies soon as the colonies grow.

Wishing you a beautiful and productive day!

Huge Hugs,
