To Bee or Not To Bee Blog Hop

Hallo! Vandaag is het World bee dayWorld bee day is een dag waarop de rol van bijen (en andere bestuivers) voor het ecosysteem wordt gevierd. We vieren deze dag vandaag met een bloghop georganiseerd door de lieve Milka. In totaal 19 verschillende kaartenmaaksters hebben een kaartje gemaakt voor deze bloghop en dan zijn er ook nog leuke prijzen te winnen! Vandaag (en ook de komende dagen) zal ik verschillende kaarten met bijtjes posten, want ik kon niet kiezen welke afbeeldingen ik wilde gebruiken voor deze bloghop. ;) Aan het einde van mijn blogpost vind je meer informatie over de deelnemers, de volgorde van de bloghop en de sponsors.


Hello! Today it is World bee dayWorld bee day is the day that celebrates the role of bees (and other pollinators) for the ecosystem. We are celebrating this day with a bloghop that has been organised by the sweet Milka. Nineteen cardmakers will share a card today for the bloghop and you will also be able to win lots of nice prices. Today (and also the coming days) I will be posting several cards with bees, because I couldn't pick which stampsets I wanted to use. ;) You can find all the info over the participants, the blog hop list and the sponsors at the bottom of my post. 


Vandaag post ik 2 kaartjes. Mijn eerste kaartje is ook gemaakt voor het Kleuren met potloden blog. Ik heb één van de lieve beertjes van de digitale stempelset Sweet honey pairables van Digi doodle studios geprint en daarna heb ik het beertje ingekleurd met mijn Derwent lightfast potloden, de zwarte glaze pen en een witte gelpen. Ik heb de vleugels en de zwarte strepen gekleurd met de Clear Spectrum noir sparkle glitter pen. Daarna heb ik de afbeelding uitgeknipt. Op een stukje wit karton heb ik een strepen achtergrond gestempeld met de Watercolour stripes background (retired) van My favorite things. Ik heb hiervoor Wild honey Distress oxide inkt gebruikt. Daarna heb ik met de Crea-nest-lies XXL 10 van Crealies een rechthoek gestanst uit het achtergrond papier. Ik heb met de Crea-nest-lies XXL 95 van Crealies een rechthoek uit zwart karton gestanst. Ik heb de rechthoeken op elkaar geplakt en daarna heb ik ze op een witte kaart geplakt. Ik heb een cirkel uit zwart karton gestanst met de Crea-nest-lies XXL 92 van Crealies en daarna heb ik de cirkel met foamtape op mijn kaart geplakt. Ik heb de afbeelding daarna met foamtape op de kaart geplakt. Ik heb de tekst Happy bee-day uit zwart karton gestanst met de Mini alpha & number cutter dies (retired) van CC. designs en daarna heb ik de tekst onder de cirkel op de kaart geplakt. 


Today I am posting 2 cards. My first card is also made for the Kleuren met potloden blog. I have printed one of the sweet bears from the digital stampset Sweet honey pairables from Digi doodle studios and then I have coloured the image with my Derwent lightfast pencils, the black glaze pen and a white gelpen. I have coloured the wings and the black stripes also with the Clear Spectrum noir sparkle glitter pen. After I coloured the image, I have fussy cut the image. I have stamped with the Watercolour stripes background (retired) from My favorite things on white cardstock with Wild honey Distress oxide ink. I have die-cut a rectangle from the background with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 10 from Crealies. I have die-cut another rectangle from black cardstock with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 95 from Crealies and I glued the stripey background on it. I have glued the rectangles on a white card. I have cut a circle from black cardstock with the Crea-nest-lies XXL 92 from Crealies and I glued it with foamtape on my card. I added the image also with foamtape. The sentiment Happy bee-day is die-cut from black cardstock with the Mini alpha & number cutter dies (retired) from CC. designs and I glued it under the image.

Mijn tweede kaartje is gemaakt met een lief bijtje van Gerda Steiner designs. Onze bloghop wordt onder andere gesponsord door Gerda Steiner designs, dus het leek me leuk om ook een afbeelding van Gerda voor de bloghop te gebruiken. :)
Ik heb de Birthday bee (digital stamp) van Gerda Steiner designs ingekleurd met mijn Polychromos potloden en de witte gelpen. Daarna heb ik de afbeelding uitgeknipt. Op een kraft kaart heb ik regenboog streepjes papier van het Really rainbow petite paper pack van Lawn fawn geplakt en daarna heb ik nog een laagje kraft karton toegevoegd. Ik heb met een zwarte gelpen lijntjes langs de randen van het kraft karton getekend. Ik heb het bijtje met foamtape op de kaart geplakt. De tekst hooray komt van de set Party animals (clear stamp) van Gerda Steiner designs en deze heb ik onder de afbeelding gestempeld. Met een zwarte gelpen heb ik het gestikte lijntje onder de bij getekend. Daarna heb ik het sterretje van de set Alien invasion (clear stamp) van Gerda Steiner designs op diverse plekken op de kaart gestempeld. Op de voelsprietjes van de bij heb ik zwarte hotfix steentjes geplakt. 


My second card is made with a sweet bee from Gerda Steiner designs. One of the sponsors from our bloghop is Gerda Steiner designs, so I also wanted to make a card with a sweet bee from Gerda for the hop.
I have coloured the Birthday bee (digital stamp) from Gerda Steiner designs with my Polychromos pencils and the white gelpen. Then I have fussy cut the image. On a kraft card I glued rainbow patterned paper from the Really rainbow petite paper pack from Lawn fawn and then I added another layer of kraft cardstock. I doodled lines on the edges of the kraft cardstock with a black gelpen. Then I glued the little bee with foamtape on the card. The sentiment Hooray is from the set Party animals (clear stamp) from Gerda Steiner designs and I stamped it under the image. I doodled the stitched swirl with a black gelpen. Then I stamped a couple of stars on the card with the star stamp from the set Alien invasion (clear stamp) from Gerda Steiner designs. I added black hotfix gems on the antenna from the bee.
