Lorre-Anne DT - Distress Oxide butterfly

Hi everyone it's Monday so that means I'm up again on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog to share another Bee Crafty DT project.  This week I am having another play with my Distress Oxides.

What you need to make this card 


What to do -
  • Take the card blank and cut it to 4" to give a tent fold card.
  • Cut black card slightly smaller and white card smaller again.
  • Place the inkables template over the white card and run through a die cutting machine to emboss the pattern.
  • Use blending foam to add some Distress Oxides to the card, and flick some water droplets on to this.  When dry, mat on to the black card and glue to the card blank.
  • Stamp the large butterfly using Versafine ink and colour in with Oxides and a water brush, cut out and glue to the card (only add glue to the centre of the butterfly so you can raise the wings to give some dimension to your card).
  • Stamp a sentiment using Versafine ink, cut out and mat on to black card.  Attach to the card using foam pads.
I'll be back next Monday with another project for you, thank you so much for dropping by.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Paula DT - Silent Night



Shopping List
Snowflake Flurry
Bee Crafty Stamps: Music ~ Soundwave Dots
Inspired by Banksy ~ Illegal Graffiti
Yuletide ~ Everyday Christmas 1 (Set of 10)
Inspired by Banksy ~ Ghetto Blaster
Versafine Onyx Black
Distress Inks


Can you believe it....there's only 3 months to go to the big day - what happened? Where did the year go to? Anyhow...moving swiftly on, here is an idea for an alternative Christmas card. I just love using the Inspired by Banksy stamps - I find them a lot more versatile to use then maybe other's do and I hope I might inspire you to take another look at them.



* Basically, I stamp the snowflake stamp in a lighter purple. Then stamp the Soundwave dots in a darker purple.
* I then stamped the boy just off the bottom of the card using black ink.
* Just ink the rat on the Illegal Graffiti and stamp along the bottom edge.
*Finally, stamp the sentiment.

This will be my last blog post for a few months as I'm taking a little break - Hopefully, I'll see you about on Facebook especially the Bee Crafty page x

Jane DT - Autumn Tag

Hello!

As the weather is turning much more autumnal now I thought that this week for my design team blog post at Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty Blog I would share one of the recent makes for the HOCHANDA shows that has a very autumnal feel...


The products used were...

* MDF Tags
* Birds and Butterflies Set 1 - Art Stamps
* Birds on a Wire - Art Stamps
* Moon - Art Stamps
* Ticker Tape Sentiments - Wordage Stamps
* Regular Dots - D'Inkables Stencil
* Maple Leaf - Inkables Template
* Distress Oxide Inkpads



My main aim with this tag (as well as to show the stamps) was to show the variety of ways that stencils can be used.  I started by using the stencil to put texture paste onto the MDF before painting it over and highlighting with gilding wax.  I then used the stencil to stipple paint through and finally I used the stencil as a template to draw around and cut out the leaves (these were then coloured using the distress oxide inks).
The tag was painted using a shimmery acrylic paint in autumnal colours and the birds and moon were stamped using versamark and then heat embossed.
To add extra interest to the background the d'inkables are ideal and on this one I used the regular dots with paint.


As well as the leaves I also wanted the beautiful bird to be a main feature.  I stamped and then clear embossed the bird before cutting it out.  Next I used alcohol markers to create some colour, choosing more autumn tones, before using glue gel to create dimension.

I hope you are enjoying the changing of the seasons.

Happy crafting,

Jane xx

Emily DT - Ally Pally Make and Take

Hi everyone, I had a lovely time at the weekend at Ally Pally. I met lots of lovely people and had a great time running the make and takes.

There were a lot of people who wanted to do the make and take and didn't get a chance because it was full so I thought I'd do a blog this week showing the technique we did at the weekend.

Here are the samples I made:









I started by using ripped paper to mask off the area I wanted to colour. I used Distress Inks and a blending tool to colour the exposed area.

I then used the same colour inks and some of the inkables to add a layer of texture. I used two inkables on each sample and my favourites are the brick wall, the honeycomb and the stars.

I then used a mixture of background stamps in the same colours again to add another layer, still just to the masked off area. The script and crackle background stamps work really well for this.

Once I was happy with the coloured panel, I removed my paper mask and stamped the focal point. I think this looks best in black but it does work in other colours too. I used various Beautanicals stamps and also used the butterflies set on one of them.

I then finished them with a sentiment and mounted them onto black card.

I love this technique and use it a lot. I think the finished effect looks so much more complicated than it actually is and it looks great in any colour and with most stamps.

I hope that everyone liked doing this technique at the weekend and I look forward to seeing lots of cards on the group and in the competition album!

Have a great week!

Karen DT - Life

Good morning everyone

What's everyone got planned for today?  Hope you all get some crafting done 😊

I'm back today with my weekly Bee Crafty DT blog over on
Buzzy Goings On At Bee Crafty Blog

I just love to mix up all my stamps and see what I come up with.
Today I'm showcasing a card I made using the following stamp sets :

Splatter Swirl Upright Rectangle Frame
Ground Elder 
Life & Rain

Also used:
Dinkable: Honeycomb
Distress Oxides:  Cracked Pistachio, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry
Distress Ink: Tumbled Glass
Versafine black onyx ink






  • I stamped the Rectangle Frame in the Versafine in the centre of my card blank 
  • Masking off the edges, I blended the DI from darker, to lighter, towards  the centre of the frame
  • I blended Cracked Pistachio DO through the Dinkable around opposite corners of the frame
  • Whilst the frame was still masked off, I inked up the Ground Elder in Cracked Pistachio and Wilted Violet DO and stamped it inside the frame. I also added a hint of Picked Raspberry DO onto the heads of the flowers and re stamped it
  • I stamped the LIFE part of the sentiment across the middle of the stem, in Cracked Pistachio DO and the remainder of the sentiment in black versafine 

I hope you like the combination of these stamps and colours. 
Many thanks for popping by and please leave a comment

Marleen DT - Butterflies and oxides

Hey Bloggers..

Once again wednesday and my turn to share inspiration for
BeeCrafty
For today I've had a play with a couple of stamps and my Oxides.
I used the "Birds and Butterflies set 1" and "Splatter Swirl Elongated rectangle"
The background is made using the mop up tecnique. I simply just added some oxide to my mat and sprayed a bit of water over the ink. Then simply just mopped up the ink with my card stock.

I then stamped my rectangle and made a lustre luxe spray by mixing a bit of lustre luxe and water into a mini mister and sprayed over my background.

 
 My butterflies are stamped, fuzzy cut and then smothered with Oxides.
I finished by matting and layering my background and arranging my my butterflies.

And that is all from me today. Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.
Dont forget to come visit me on FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube or my FB page.
 Happy Crafting

Charlee DT - Balloon Girl

Morning everyone. Hope you've all had a good week. Here's my blog for today. Hope you enjoy. As ever if you have any questions, leave a comment below and I'll do my best to answer.








What you'll need:



Step 1:

Cut some white card down to the size you wish. Scribble the pink and purple sparkle pens onto the card. Taking a large flat wet brush, do a wash over the card moving the colour all over the card.

Step 2:

Once you're happy with how your background looks. Lightly spritz the moon stamp with water and stamp onto the card. Don't put too much pressure onto the stamp. Leave for about 30 seconds remove and then blot with a paper towel.

Step 3:

Ink up the balloon girl stamp in versafine and stamp her in the position you want her on the card. Stamp the shoot for the moon sentiment in the bottom right corner, also using versafine.

Step 4:

Using just the smaller stars on the dinkable, blend some black soot distress ink through the dinkable in random places all over the the background. Then once your happy, simply matt onto some black card and the adhere to your card blank.


Hope you like this week inspiration. If you don't have any sparkle pens, you could get a similar look with whatever ink,pens etc you may have that react with water.

Until next week

Lorre-Anne DT - Hochanda samples

Hi everyone, for this weeks Bee Crafty blog post I'm sharing the samples I made for Sam's recent shows on Hochanda.  

Materials - 


I cut white card slightly smaller than the card blank, and blended a circle of Squeezed Lemonade DI in the centre of the card.  I then used Versafine ink to stamp the moon on this yellow circle, masked it off then carefully blended Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concord distress inks all over the rest of the card - heavier at the edges and lighter towards the centre.  I then used Versafine to stamp some wildflowers along the bottom, then blended Black Soot DI around the edges of the card.  I finished by adding some ticker tape sentiments, and some white gesso paint flicks.


I cut various mats and layers from white and black card stock.  I took the smallest white square and blended Candied Apple Distress Oxide through the heart easy frame, I then flicked water droplets on this and dabbed with some kitchen roll.  I placed the inkable heart over, then flicked some Black Soot Distress Oxide over the card.  I finished by adding some faux stitching with a black pen, some ticker tape sentiments and a few butterflies.  I matted and layered and glued to the card blank.


I cut various mats and layers from white and coloured card.  On the smallest white square I blended some Spiced Marmalade through the maple leaf, I then placed the actual leaf over the blended leaf and blended some Vintage Photo around the edges... this gave the 3D effect seen above.  I stamped a bird using Vintage Photo, used a water brush to add some colour, and added a few ticker tape sentiments.  I finished by adding some gems, matted and layered and glued to the card blank.


I masked off an area of the card and blended some Salty Ocean and Twisted Citron in it, I kept the masking tape in place and then using Versafine ink to stamp the wildflowers.  I carefully removed the masking tape, added a few stamped butterflies and a ticker tape sentiment.  I finished by adding some gems, before matting to some black card and attaching to the card blank.


I cut black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and white card slightly smaller again.  On the white square of card I blended some Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord through the circle easy frame.  Keeping the circle template in place, I used Versafine ink to stamp the wildflowers.  I finished by adding some ticker tape sentiments and a few gems before matting to the black card, and attaching to the card blank.


I cut brown card slightly smaller than the card, and white card slightly smaller again.  I used a scoreboard to score lines across the white card, then blended some Vintage Photo around the edges before matting it to the brown card and gluing to the card blank. On spare white card I blended various colours of Distress Ink through the maple leaf template, and cut each leaf out.  I arranged these around the card, and finished by adding a sentiment and some stamped butterflies.

I really enjoyed playing with these stamps, and I hope you like what I designed using them.  Please pop over to the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog and you can see the fabulous creations my team mates have came up with.  I'll be back next week to share another project with you all.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Jane DT - A Kaleidoscope of Butterflies

Hello!

Once again it is my turn to share a project on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty Blog and this week I have chosen my favourite design team sample from last weeks HOCHANDA shows...


There may be a bit of a pattern emerging with my posts in that it is becoming very obvious that I love butterflies!!  Here are the products that I used...

* Circle MDF Art Board
* Moon - Art Stamp
* Birds and Butterflies - Art Stamps
* Wildflower 2  - Beautanicals Stamp
* Ticker Tape Sentiments - Wordage Stamps
* Regular Dots - D'Inkables Stencil
* Acrylic Paint
* Crackle Paint
* White Embossing Powder
* Silver Gilding Wax


1) After priming the art board with gesso I put texture paste through the regular dots stencil, then added some blue acrylic paint to crackle paint and painted the whole piece.
2) Once dry I stamped on the moon and wildflowers using versamark ink then heat embossed with white powder.
3) To highlight the stencilling I added some silver gilding wax.
4) Then the time consuming part!! I stamped lots of the 3 smallest butterflies in black Versafine ink and clear embossed with powder over the top.
5) After cutting them out I coloured them using different shades of blue alcohol markers and then used clear sparkle pen to add a gentle shimmer.


6) I planned out where I wanted the butterflies to be, then attached them using glue gel.
7) I chose the sentiment I wanted from the ticker tape set and stamped using versamark onto black card, then heat embossed again in white.
8) I cut the words and phrases out then placed them where I wanted them to go.


I hope you were able to catch the shows last week.  If not they do remain on the HOCHANDA website to rewind for about 2 weeks so there is still time to watch them!

Have a lovely weekend and happy crafting!

Jane xx
