All Is Merry & Bright




I bought this die from Reverse Confetti recently and used it as a mask for sponging their Abyss Ink and Tim Holtz Dusty Concord~


 HoneyBee Stamps Bright Honey Cuts, Reverse Confetti Bubble Confetti Cuts (used as a mask for blending)/Abyss Ink, Papertrey Ink City Scene Christmas sentiment, Brutus Monroe Raven Detail Ink/ Black foam tape/Midnight Cardstock and Iris Glitterstock, Tim Holtz Dusty Concord Distress Ink, Avery Elle Double Pierced Rectangles


This glitter stock came with Brutus Monroe's Plaid Inspiration box ~I believe it's Iris Glitterstock.





 


The awesome HoneyBee Stamps "bright" die was part of a generous goodie bag from Brutus Monroe's Fifth Anniversary Party which I was super excited and blessed to be able to attend.

Look for tickets next year or visit any other time for the whole studio experience.

It will be worth your time!


You will not only feel like a crafter, but an ARTIST when you visit  for your supplies.


Also, you'll make new friends, because the staff is super attentive and kind.




These challenge design teams are filled with kind people too:
