When Honey Bee Stamps introduced their Home Building Honey Cuts, I fell in love! They have since added a Gingerbread House, Halloween, Sweet Shop, Farm House add on, Beach House add on, stencils and paper pads. Oh the possibilities! I haven’t bought it all, but I’m getting closer - lol. While I will admit that looking at all those dies, it did seem a bit overwhelming. But now that I’ve done a few….loving it!!!!
Step 1: I always start with stamping in my MISTI with Memento Ink so I can color with Copics. Honey Bee Farm House Add On Stamp are small and are colored quickly. Colors used are YG07 (SKU: YG06-s), G07 (SKU:G07-s), V22 (SKU:V22-s), BG13 (SKU: BG13-s), BG15 (SKU: BG15-s), E27 (SKU:E27-s), C4 (SKU: C4-s) and Y1 (SKU: Y11-s).
Step 2: Time to die cut with my Gemini Jr. First I die cut all my colored images with coordinating Honey Cuts. Then die cut the other decorative pieces.
Step 3: You need the House Builder Honey Cuts for the house base. The shutters are from the Gingerbread House Honey Cuts. The Home Essentials Paper Pad takes care of roof, siding, front door, porch floor and chimney.
Step 4: To add a little color behind the window frames, I used Summer Sky Ink and a blender brush to lightly color the edges to resemble glass.
Step 5: Now the fun part, arranging all the pieces. I think I giggled the whole time! Adhere the elements with Connect Glue. I will tell you that teeny tiny door handle takes some coordination to adhere, thank goodness for reverse tweezers!
