I'm not a big fan of bees but this new Honey Bees stamp set has won my heart. It's so cute. I had so much fun to make cards with it. On today's card I used Digital Version DIGI775 of the same set. I made one image smaller and flipped it horizontally. I also added some extra flowers to fill the space (it is visible on the last photo). Larger image was fuzzy cut with scissors. All the coloring was done with Promarkers.

Sentiment is also from the same digi set. I placed it inside of the circle  and printed them out. I used circle as a guide to cut it out with scissors. I adhered piece of Super Adhesive Sheets to the scrap piece of cardstock and used Spellbinders circle die to die cut it out. I adhered sentiment to the center and covered rest of the sticky with Black Suede Microfine Glitter. I also added some White Want 2 Scrap Sleek Strips Pearls for decoration.

The bee on following photo is made the same way as is the sentiment. 
With grass I went messy. I sprinkled Nuance water-soluble powder (Jade) to the white cardstock and spritzed water on top. I like the color variations it gave. After my self-made green cardstock was dry I used PoppyStamps Grassland Border die to die cut strips of grasses. To add even more color I inked it with Peeled Paint and Moved Lawn Distress Inks.

To make my sparkly spring background I adhered piece of Super Adhesive Sheets to the white cardstock. With x-acto knife I cut the top layer to make the frame. I removed protective sheet only from the edges and covered the sticky with Black Suede glitter. After that I peeled off rest of the protective sheet and then the Dreamweaver Cherry Blossom Stencil came in to the play. I rubbed Hawaiian Coconut & Palm Oil Soap to the back side of the stencil and placed it back side down to the Adhesive Sheet. I added Ballerina and Cloud Nine glitters through the stencil. After stencil was removed I covered rest of the sticky with Waterfall glitter. Tree branches and leaves was colored with markers.

It was very fun to make this card and I love the outcome. Hope you like it too and got some ideas.

Now, the next stop on our blog hop is very talented Diane.

We hope you enjoy the New Reveal Blog Hop as much as we do.  Thanks for joining us and remember to comment on each of the Designers' blogs to be eligible for the Grand Prize.  
 Wonder who the Mystery Host will be this month????
