Hello Honey Bee friends!

I have never in my life have been so anxious for Spring to arrive. We have never had temperatures this cold for so long, and that is saying a lot since I am Canadian and am used to having Winter for 6 months of the year, lol! The only good thing about it being so cold is that I find myself in the craft room a lot more making pretty things.

So for today’s card, I have made a Spring inspired card featuring the Birds and the Bees and the Friendship Stamp sets. To begin this card I stamped out the images I wanted to use from the Birds and the Bees set onto a piece of Bristol paper. I then colored the images in using Zig Clean color markers.  Once they were dry I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out.

For the background, I blended out broken china onto the top half of the card front and then die cut the panel using the largest Deckle Edge Die Frame. I then stamped out the sentiment from the Friendship stamp set on the bottom half of the panel using Picked Raspberry distress oxide ink and then used clear embossing powder to heat set the ink.

Next, I planned out the scene with my pieces and once I was happy I glued them down in place popping up some of the images to add depth and dimension. For a decorative detail, I used some twine in coordinating colors to make it look like the birdhouse was suspended and tied on to the branch.

As finishing details I added some shimmer to the flowers, white and gold pen details as well as glossy accents. For a complete supply list visit my blog.

    I’m in Edmonton Canada and am really sick of winter this year. It’s been so cold for so long. Love the card and those cute birds. Thanks for the inspiration!
