For this week's Sunday Stamper the theme is Honey Colours/ Honeycombs so my initial thought was to do make a beehive but it didn't work the way i wanted it to...
So i then decided to make a Jar of Honey...the type you'd buy at village feté.
Everything is totally made from card or paper which i have coloured using paints & inks, hand stamped using the individual letters to make the label. I used the date of 2009 as this is when we opened Little Paper House :)
Finally as there was a shortage of bees today, i used a beautiful butterfly instead!
However here's 1 of my busy bees card...that i hand drew then scanned into the computer. We hope you like this too :) This can be purchased in our shop & online.
This was a bit of a challenge for me this week...as my 1st love of choice is paper rather than using different harder materials such as metal. But after thinking for awhile i came up with this idea!...of creating a rustic door which could appear in any secret garden. i've used metal for the window panel & the hanging keys.
I love these challenges as it gets you used to trying to work with something different that pushes the craft comfort barrier.
Love LPH x
PS. Just a quick thank you to all that commented on last weeks snowflakes...we love having them & would love you to become a member or our blog!
Just thought i would share with you a few more pics of the latest workshop, these are made from layers of card to give a wood effect then painted & inked to give the vintage look then to finish some ribbon & a bell.
If you fancy making these...please see the previous post for details.
