Welcome, friends! We’re springing into March with some fabulously fun and lovely creations with this month’s Whimsy and Stars Studio’s New Release Blog Hop!

You probably arrived here from Melissa’s blog, and now you’re visiting me (Suzanne)!

This month, Mabelle is releasing two new digis in the Whimsy and Stars Studio etsy store“Spring Bees” and “Welcome Spring!” 


I chose “Spring Bees” for my card! I chose some happy, bright paper and colored the bees to match. I added some Stickles to their wings to give them a little extra sparkle! 

Other supplies: patterned paper (“Hello Sunshine” mini pad – Bo Bunny), sentiment stamp (“Signature Greetings” – PaperTrey Ink, twine (Whisker Graphics), lace, Copic markers, photo die (“Insta Love die set” – Your Next Stamp), button, sewing machine.

To make the bees’ wings pop out from the frame, I lightly drew pencil lines around the image where the frame would cut, then fussy cut the parts of the wings (plus a little extra because I used thick paper) that would be outside the die’s cut line. 

When I ran the paper through my Big Shot with the metal die, I positioned the wings on top of the die, so the wings wouldn’t get cut. The rest of the image was positioned underneath the die so it would cut correctly. Any remaining pencil lines were erased.

Don’t forget to leave a comment for each blog you visit on today’s hop, because Mabelle will choose two random winners from all of the blog comments left throughout the hop. Each winner will receive a digi stamp of their choice! This hop will run until Friday, March 8th at midnight Eastern Time, so make sure to get your commenting done by then!

And, I always recommend stopping by the Whimsy and Stars Studio etsy store to check out all of the positively adorable spring and Easter-themed digis and the two new releases for this month! You’re sure to find one (or LOTS) that you’ll love!

 Your next stop on the hop is Tracy’s fabulous blog! If you want to start at the beginning, just visit the Whimsy and Stars Studio blog for the full list of participants!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’ll be posting two more Whimsy and Stars Studio cards on my blog this month (Monday, March 11 and Monday, March 25)…so I hope you’ll stop by again!
