Spellbinders April 2020 Club Inspiration Blog Hop

Hello there crafty friends! I am so excited to be participating in the Spellbinders April Clubs inspiration blog hop. Loads of inspiration from some amazing paper crafters!

I am sharing another project created from The Spellbinders Card kit of the month. I love this kit and the little bee stamp set and matching dies.

Everything is stamped in black ink and I colored the hive and the the bees with copics. The background is simple ink blending with Distress oxide ink. (peeled paint and tumbled glass).

I did fussy cut the hive. It’s pretty simple but the cute bees have a die! I could but the on everything! Get you card kit HERE. It’s the only way to get the stamps and dies, they are not sold separate.
