Hello friends! Please join me over on the Honey Bee Stamps Blog where I'm sharing more about this springy friendship card. I've mixed some old and brand new Honey Cuts to create a pot of flowers and birdhouse set against a messy watercolored background.

Welcome everyone! I'm excited to share my card for Day 2 of Honey Bee Stamps 5th Anniversary Blog Hop but first I want to pass along some giveaway info. Honey Bee Stamps is giving a $25 gift card to one lucky hopper so please be sure to leave a comment on every stop along the way to be eligible to win.
Your next stop on the hop is Becky Roberts.
I will also have the full hop list at the end of this post in case you've missed anyone.
Now on to the card I'm sharing. I've used several of the new release products to create a birthday card for my Mom. She's an avid gardener and her birthday is in May. The watering can and flowers in the Spring Bouquets Honey Cuts were just perfect to create a card for her.
I started by creating the patterned background using the Buffalo Plaid Builder Stencils. To get the two toned plaid, I used Seedless Preserves and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide inks. I splattered the background with some thinned purple and white paint. I trimmed the background panel with the largest Double Stitched Squares Honey Cuts. I then layered it over a white scalloped edge panel that's slightly bigger.
Next I die cut all the flowers, leaves, and the watering can out of white card stock with the Spring Bouquets Honey Cuts. I used blending brushes and Distress Oxide inks to color each die cut piece. I want to point out that there isn't a stem die in the set so I just hand cut some tulip stems.
I added the watering can to the plaid background panel slightly towards the right side. Then I arranged the flowers and leaves to form the bouquet.
I created a custom greeting with a combination of stamps and dies. The words "wishing" and "the happiest are from the Birthday stamp set. I used the Bee Bold Lower Case Honey Cuts to spell out the "you". To complete the greeting I die cut the word "birthday" with the Birthday Honey Cuts.
I added a twine bow plus a few Clear Iris Sequins and then adhered the finished panel to a square 5" x 5" card base.
