Spring is here.......

Hi folks, Barbara back again with my regular weekend post using Bee Crafty stamps & products.
Because it's Spring, (or supposed to be) I've done butterflies....again! (I saw some in my garden last week) And, not only one card for you this weekend but TWO......how good am I? LOL
Anyway, both cards were made using the same design and stamp, but because I've used different colours, they look totally different!
Black embossing powder and 'watercoloured' with Adirondack inks. I've covered each butterfly with Glossy Accents to make them shine, and added a few sequins.
The cardstock is white 'hemp' which I love because of the texture.
This card has the butterflies embossed in gold, then mounted onto gold mirri-card. Again, it has been 'watercoloured with inks.
So, two totally different colour schemes, which do you like best??
Back soon with more cards using brand new Bee Crafty stamps...yeah!

Emily DT - Life Is Good

Hi everyone, I've had a bit of time this week to play with some new stamps, one of which is the beautiful 'life is good' sentiment. As soon as I got it I wanted to use it so I made this card...


I started by cutting a square of white card and masking off a strip to colour. I coloured it using inking brushes and Distress Inks. I then stamped over using the Beautanicals leaf set in the same colours.


I stamped the sentiment in the bottom corner in black memento ink and also added some leaves in black.


I then mounted it on black and onto my card blank.

I'm really pleased with how it turned out because green isn't a colour I use very often.

I hope you like it too!

Kerrie DT - Steampunk Stories - Hochanda Samples

Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty Stamps

We all hope you enjoyed watching the Bee Crafty Shows on Hochanda with Our Bev & Our Sam weren't they just amazing and so inspiring, I always love to see their Demo's... Unfortunately I missed the last post so my Samples didnt make it to the shop on time so they were not shown on the show so I am sharing them with you here instead... I shared one last week but in case you missed it... they are all here today...


This is the one I shared here on the Blog last week... If you havent seen the post click on the link below to see how I made it


For this make I have inked the Background cardstock using Peeled Paint and Tumbled Glass distress inks, Then stamped one of the Style Wire Borders around the edge. For the main Image I stamped the beautiful 'Steampunk Stories - Rosie' onto white linen cardsstock using archival ink. I then inked around the edges with the 2 distress inks again. I then tapped the Peeled Paint distress inkpad onto my glass craft mat, spritzed with water, picked up the colour using a paint brush and painted over her eyes and her dress. I then stamped 'Wordage 'Love Love' onto an offcut of the linen cardstock using archival ink and inked the edges using Tumbled Glass distress ink. I matted all the pieces using black cardstock and layered them up on a 7x7 inch Cardblank.


For this one I used a piece of grey board which I prepped using white gesso on a dry brush to create a distressed look background. I then stamped the Bolt from 'Steampunk Stories - Cog Set' just onto the edges of 3 sides and fully onto the 4th side. I inked over using Tea Dye distress ink. I then trimmed a piece of the Steampunk Background Papers, inked the eges and glued to the background. On leftover greyboard that I had prepped using white gesso, I stamped 'Steampunk Stories - Rosie', I then coloured over her hair using some brown coloured pencils, trimmed her out using sharp scissors, inked the edges and fixed to the background but overlapping the background paper. On another leftover piece of greyboard which I left unprepped I stamped 'Wordage - Making Memories' I then roughly painted gesso around the edges and lightl inked using Frayed Burlap distress ink. To finish I added some paper flowers that I inked using Frayed Burlap distress ink and fixed to the project using a hot glue gun.


For this one I trimmed a piece of linen cardstock to a half cm smaller than a 5x7 cardblank. I inked this piece of cardstock using Squeezed Lemonade & Tattered Rose distress inks. I stamped the postcard script from 'Steampunk Stories - Post Card Set' in the corner along the long side on the right of the cardstock piece. I stuck down some 'Jointing Tape' (pinched from hubby's toolshed) under where I would attach the main image. For the main image I stamped 'Steampunk Stories - Violinist' onto watercolour card which I had pre-trimmed to a nice size for the card front. I then watercoloured her using Victorian Velvet, Tattered Rose & Frayed Burlap distress inks that I dabbed onto my glass craft mat, I painted them on using a water spritzer first and lifting the colours from the mat using a paint brush. I had stamped the image using a pale inkpad so when I painted over her she looked more like a painted sketch. To finish my card I inked a few paper flowers using a makeup sponge and Frayed Burlap distress ink.

I hope these have shown you a few other ways to use your 'Steampunk Stories' stamps, I'm a big fan of soft vintage colours so these were perfect to use with the stamps

Barbara DT - Rainbow Feathers

Morning everyone, I'm back with my usual Saturday post for Bee Crafty......did you miss me last week? I was still on holiday, but it's the very first weekend I've missed blogging in over a year of being on the DT ;-)
Anyway, I'm here today with a card using the feather stamps from 
I stamped in Versamark and heat-embossed with white ep, then simply inked around the image with various colours of Adirondacks.
A sentiment and a few jewels and I was done.  ( less is more, as they say ) 
Lots of matting & layering onto the same colours of cardstock, enabled me to turn this into an 8" x 8" card, for more impact.
 Hope you like it.

Back soon xx

Kerrie DT - Steampunk - Violinist

Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty

Today I am sharing with you one of my Project's using the New Steampunk Collection that Our Bev & Sam are bringing to Hochanda on Wednesday... don't forget to tune in and watch our girlies and their amazing demonstrations

Bee Crafty products used...

Steampunk - Violinist - polymer stamp
Wordage - Dream - polymer stamp
Wordage - Always Believe - polymer stamp
Inkables Template - 6" Circle - easy frame


I trimmed a piece of white pearlescent cardstock to 5.5" which I then rounded 2 corners using a corner punch. I used low rack masking rape to hold down the circle template then inked through it using Victorian Velvet & Frayed Burlap distress inks. I then carefully removed the template and used my heat tool to dry the distress inks.

I then stamped the Violinist using black archival ink and tipped clear embossing powder over her and tapped off the excess I then heated the embossing powder using my heat tool which created a raised glossy effect overy the stamped image. I Then used Victorain Velvethe,  Tattered Rose and Frayed Burlap distress markers to watercolour the image by first scribbling them into my inking mat, spritz in with a water spray and lifting the colour with a paint brush and pained over parts of the stamped image.

I stamped the Dream and Always Believe Wordage stamps onto the card front at the tip and the bottom using black archival ink.

I used Brown Mirror Board for a Mattime behind the card front and fixed to the front of a scalloped 6x6" cardblank

Thank You for visiting today... do come back again soon to see what the clever Design Team have been creating with more of the Steampunk Collection

Kraft Hugs xx
