Honey Bee 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1



Hi all! Welcome to Honey Bee 5th anniversary blog hop! There will be 2 days of hop as we have lots of projects to share. I am glad that you are here joining us on day 1 and helping us celebrate. We have many fun & beautiful sets line sup for this release and we sure hope you love them.

You should arrive here from Honey Bee blog (that's also where you can find complete list of today's hop participants). Without further delay, here are my cards. Let's start with this soft pastel rainbow color flower card.




For this card, I started by ink blending some colors on a panel of cardstock and then run it through my Cuttlebug with the Flower Centers Coverplate. This plate added those dots details around each petal. Once I did that, I layered the panel with Flower Petal Coverplate. This plate cut the petals. You could use each coverplate individually, but layered together they create fun detailed petals.

Once I finished gluing all the petals, I added drops of Nuvo Jewel Drops in various color (trying my best to match the flower colors). Once they dry, I stamp sentiment from Friend set and use the matching Friend dies.

For my next card, which is one of my favorite from this release, I used the gorgeous Farm Flowers set and  Buffalo Plaid stamp set for the background. How pretty is this flower bouquet?



Started by stamping the plaid background and then simply stamp, color and die cut the flower and the tin can. Finished by adding sentiment and some enamel drops.




There you go. A couple cards that hopefully help inspire you to create this weekend. 

And, of course, we have a giveaway as part of the celebration. For each day of the hop we're giving away $25 gift certificate to the shop. Simply comment along each blog and winners will be chosen randomly and will be announced on Honey Bee blog. 

Happy 5th anniversary Honey Bee and I am so thankful that I get to be part of such great company. Here's to many more . From here please hop on over to my dear friend, the fun & amazing Kelli Latevola. Thank you all for stopping by here. Please stay safe, stay healthy and have a blessed weekend.
