Things are starting to bloom around Nashville these days. There are beautiful trees with white and purple flowers and the daffodils are out. When we lived in Northern New York that wouldn’t happen until May. That is one of my favorite things about Nashville. There are actually four whole seasons here.
After looking at all the beautiful blooms I decided to take out the Honeybee Home bundle. We don’t have bees out quite this early but some of the flowers are ready for them to come. This bundle includes the stamp set with the same name and the Honeybee Blooms dies. They are in the 2022/2023 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog and if you use the bundle number to order them, you can save 10%.
To make this card, I first stamped the flowers and bees in Memento Black ink and colored them using my Polished Pink, Soft Succulent and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Markers. Then, I cut them out using the coordinating dies. I cut a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of the Framed Florets Designer Series Paper (retired) and layered it on a Balmy Blue card base. Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Framed Florets stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink and cut it out using one of the Framed Floret dies. This particular die cuts out the oval frame and the inside at the same time.
So pretty, Susan! March was so nice – and then last week it went back to winter. Looks like spring for a few days, at least! I love this card.
