Ready to see what the first challenge is all about? Honeycomb. I know, I didn't know what it was either other than something sweet made by bees. It only took a quick Google search to find out that it is something really interesting and very fun to make. Here is a link to the tutorial at Splitcoaststampers by Lydia Fieldler that I used to make my honeycomb project.
Heart Outline Die. I used thin cardstock and cut two hearts at a time. Eleven hearts for each project. They are folded in half, glued right end to left end and fanned out like an accordion. I used a glue stick to glue mine together, left it dry for a while and was all ready to finish my project.
Hug Squeeze Background stamp and glued the hearts to it. I love red, pink and black together.

Beautiful project Cathy, you have such a keen eye for design. That that centre heart in all the colours and the background stamp--stunning.
Cathy, your project is just amazing! What a fantastic idea for using the honeycomb technique. I have seen the honeycomb material that you can cut out but never thought you could create your own. Love the colors you chose and the great script background--just beautiful!

This project is so fun. I love hearts and that BG stamp is adorable.
Hi Cathy! Wow, I'm really loving this elegant piece of wall art!! Why am I seeing the hearts as a hot air balloon? LOL The heart might even make a cuter balloon than the Christmas ornament?! Anyways, thanks so much for commenting on my blog today. I'm very excited about your new challenge blog and hope you get lots of players!! Can't wait to see what the next one will be!
You make the most wonderful projects! LOVE this!
