Sweet Queen Bee

 
Er det Juni allerede?! Mai fløy så fort forbi.. Sommern er her ~ vel, iallefall noen steder i landet ;) Her har vi hatt noen få god-dager med varmebølge, men stort sett kjennes det som vinteren enda er her med rundt 5 grader.. Stakars lille humlene og biene! De må være så fortumlet, de trodde jo det var sommer når gradestokken nærmet seg tredve! Om du ser noen svimete lodne små veps, ville bier og humler, gi dem litt sukkervann og bananskall så de kommer seg :) De er så kjempeviktige for naturen vår, så vi må hjelpe når vi kan! ♥ ♥ ♥

Den vakre dronningbien på kortet mitt er et digistempel fra Scrappers Delights, og om du liker denne typen stempler, så kjører de faktisk et kjempesalg akkurat nå ~ da de skal over i ny butikk/nettside nå i juli.

For litt fakta om bier, anbefaler jeg en titt på youtube videoen litt lengre ned eller kansje se på disse som er på norsk:.
🐝 NRK TV ~ Naturligvis ~ sesong 1 episode 3 som handler om humler og villbier.
🐝 Intressant fakta fra Summende hager ~ Humlas historie.
🐝MiljøAgentene ~ klikk på 2018 bladet med tema: Insekter
(nb. åpner et dokument - pdf fil - med hele utgaven av bladet)

Har du forresten sett at jeg har en bloggcandy med masse flotte 
dies og stempler ++? Ta en titt her og bli med i trekningen :)


Is it June already? Where did the month of May go? I feel we just passed April.. Summer is here, well, some days! Some days it feels like winter still, with under 5 celsius ;) Poor little hornets, bees and all the cute fuzzy bumblebees! They must be so dazed and confused, thinking summer was here when we had this surge of high tropical temperatures, and then its back to winter almost! 
So when you see a little one struggling on your veranda, be kind and give it sugarwater and a banana peel if u got one :) They are so vitally important to our nature eco system so we have to help them out when we can! ♥ ♥ ♥

The pretty QueenBee on my card is by Scrappers Delights, who by the way are running an awesome sale right now, as they're transitioning into a new store in july. They're also retiring alot of images, so there's a last chance 'retiring' section as well.

Bzz bzz ~ have u seen my awesome Blogcandy?

Here is a link I found to a very interesting youtube video in a fun cartoon by Kurzgesagt ~ In a Nutshell: The Death Of Bees Explained ~ Parasites, Poison and Humans.
I'm sure you will enjoy their channel as they have loads of information share and explained in a very fun way. Show your kids! :)

There are SO many more youtube videos on the topic of bees that's dissapearing.. and why bees are so important to us, but I wanted to share this one by Animalogic on this post so that you can watch it below, it's amazing!

inside detail

Stamps/Images: Scrappers Delights 'Bee Digi 7' digistamp. Hero Arts 'MMH July 2017 Garden kit' clearstamps (bee trail and text). All Night Media 'Dragonfly' rubberstamp.
Papers: I prefer Canson Montvale aquarelle paper (200 g/m coldpressed) for my motifs. Bazzill black cardstock for base. Plain white cardstock.

Embellishments: Panduro Hobby 'Vintage news' Washitape.

Tools: I always use my Scor-Pal to score n fold my cards. My distress tools from Ranger Ink is always in use ~ Tim Holtz® Mini Ink Round Blending Tool & the Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool and Foams. Stampers Anonymous 'Mini Stencil Set 8, stencil #5.' by Tim Holtz.
Dies: Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Thinlits Dies 'Mixed Media 2'. Marianne Design Emb.folder & Dieset (hexagons) 'DF3404 - Chickenwire'.
Essentials/Adhesives: 3D foam/mosegummi. Scor-Pal Scor-Tape Double Sided Adhesive, strong high tack (5 inch x 27yards wich is amazing value at Blitsy). Rangers Glossy accents. Indigoblu IndigoBlu 'Megaflake Chocolate Box' gildingflakes.

Techniques/Mediums: I used misc. Luminarte Twinkling H2o's Shimmering Watercolors, and Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads & Oxide inks to watercolor and distress image and papers. I used plain white cardstocks to smoosh inks on, and stencil on, to make my own papers. To heat emboss the text, I used a Versamark inkpad, a heat gun tool & black Hero Arts embossingpowder.
The most fun technique is also the most messy! I rubbed gilding flakes onto strong adhesive tape, and bits went flying everywhere!  You can see the similar process on this blogpost ~ Cupcake Kitten ~ exept this one is much easier as I just covered the back of my cardfront with adhesive tape, directly behind the openings of the intricate swirly Mixed Media diecut. And then used a scrubberfoam scoochytool (also from a IndigoBlu kit) to rub off any access flakes. The result always amazes me :)
