Emily DT - Wonderful Wizard of OZ

Hi everyone, I wanted to share my samples from the Hochanda show last week when Bev showed off the Wonderful Wizard of Oz inspired stamps.

I love these stamps, but I am not very good at colouring so these presented a bit of a challenge for me.

I had a go at colouring but only managed a few cards this time.

Here they are...

I was happy with how they turned out, and wanted to show that you don't have to be fabulous at colouring to be able to use these stamps.

I hope you like my samples :)

Marleen DT - Hochanda Wizard of OZ samples

Hey Bloggers..

I appologise, I totally forgot about my post for BeeCrafty yesterday. Life is a bit hectic around here at the moment.. No excuse though so I decided to post my samples today.

Bev was on Hochanda this past Tuesday with the amazing stamp collection called "Inspired by the Wizard of OZ". Its a beautifull collection based on the original book.

This one is made with distress ink. I made a water colour wash for the back ground and then the same colour through the brick stencil.
Mr Tinman is coloured and covered with glossy accent.

This background took quite some time to make to be honest, but it was worth it I think. I started by repeatedly stamping OZ greeting with red, orange and yellow distress ink. I then misted it with water and left to air dry. Once dry, I took the brick stencil and used a clear paste through it. Once again, left to dry. Once totally dry again, I misted the background with plenty of water so the ink between the bricks started to run. Once again left to dry.

While doing all this waiting, I stamped the same greting on to vellum and I stamped and water coloured my Lion. I fuzzy cut him and added him to my background with my greeting.

 Once again my brick stencil, this time with white paste. Once oaste was dry I added brusho on top.
Dorothy is water coloured and fuzzy cut as is my greeting.

 This one was a play on one of my favorite card designs. Its no secret that I love making backgrounds and this design is such an easy way to show off a background. 

And then my favorite.. These stamps has a vintage feel to them. And after making the other samples I still hadnt come up with that "wow" card that I always aim for when getting a new collection landing on my table. And then it hit me.. I had made my samples as usual BeeCrafty cards.. My usual style.. But these stamps are so different and needed a different approach.. And thats when this vintage card came together..

I used the BeeCrafty Steampunk papers, lots of layers and distressing, water colouring and fuzzy cutting, twinw and whatever that mesh stuff is called  lol..

I love this creation and think it truly sets of these beautiful stamps.

And that is it for today. Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Lorre-Anne DT - Heraldic samples

Hi everyone, for my post today I want to share with you the samples I made for Bev's live Hochanda show from the NEC.    The following cards were made using Bee Crafty's Heraldic set of stamps, and I've got to say I really enjoyed playing with these - the alphabet is fabulous!


Front of twist & pop card

Back of twist & pop card

Inside of twist & pop card

8" x 8" card made using Spiced Marmalade, Wilted Violet & Vintage Photo Distress Oxides

6" x 6" card made using Chipped Sapphire & Candied Apple Distress Oxides

6" x 6" card made using Ost.Blue Brushos

8" x 8" card made using Seedless Preserves & Wilted Violet Distress Inks.  I put some of the inks on to a blending mat, spritzed with water and then dragged a square of card through it - whilst still wet I placed a scrunched up piece of clingfilm over the top and left for around 5 mins.  I then carefully removed the clingfilm and dried the card, and I was left with this pattern on my card.

I'll be back next week to share another project with you all, until then happy crafting!

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Jane DT - Nature in ATC's


It is my turn today on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty Blog and I thought that today I would share with you some ATC's that I made this week.

For anyone who does not know, ATC stands for Artist Trading Card and is a piece of art work created on a substrate measuring 3 1/2 " x 2 1/2 ".  The original idea was that they were a form of business card that artists could swap with each other, but they seem to be making a resurgence at the moment as mini pieces of art or craft.

I love making them as it is a great opportunity to try out products or techniques without needing to use anything too big, and I tend to use ATC's made of greyboard or other thicker substrates so that I can throw all sorts of mediums and layers at them!!

I am enjoying creating themed sets of ATC's at the moment so decided to begin a little series using Bee Crafty stamps and stencils with a nature theme.
The idea was to have a go at using some acrylic inks and alcohol that I acquired a while ago to create a background I had seen on the internet.  However my backgrounds didn't end up looking anything like I had planned but I still liked them so carried on creating with them.
Once the background had dried I used the honeycombe d'inkable to add some stencilling using acrylic paint.
To add more detail to the background I used the XL script stamp with sepia archival ink in patches across both cards.
I then stamped my main foliage feature on both using Versafine black then embossed over the top with clear powder (teasels and ground elder).
Then more stencilling was added, this time using sparkle paste to add some texture.
Finally I stamped out the butterfly twice in Versafine black again and chose parts of 2 different sentiments.  My original idea was to colour the butterflies to match the background, but once I saw them alongside the monochrome sentiments I left them plain as I felt they made a nice contrast to the backgrounds...

Here are the links to the products I used...

* D'nkables - Honeycombe
* D'inkables - Sunset
* D'inkables - Cracked Glass
* Beautanicals - Teasels
* Beautanicals - Ground Elder
* Art Stamps - Birds and Butterflies Set 1
* Wordage - Ticker Tape Sentiments Set 1
* Wordage - Dreams Come True (small)
* Backdrops - XL Script

I am definitely going to add some more to this collection using other Beautanical stamps and I hope this will inspire you to have a go at some mini art works too!

Happy crafting,

Jane xx

Emily DT - Wildflowers

HI everyone, I'm showing off a very quick and easy card I have made this week, which is great for lots of occasions.

Here is the card...

I started by choosing a scrap rectangle of white card. I coloured it by blending Distress Inks from one side, gradually adding darker shades of green and finally adding a touch of black right at the top.

Once I was happy with it I stamped the Wildflower 1 stamp twice in black Memento ink.

I mounted it onto black card and stuck it onto a card blank. I then stamped my sentiment straight onto the card blank in black ink.

I chose a sentiment which fit the space I had on the card, but this type of card could by used with lots of different sentiments.

I hope you like it as much as I do. It is a very simple, quick card to make which looks beautiful.

See you next week!

Circle easy frame Inkable 
D'Inkables: Sunset, Regular Dots, Honeycomb
WORDage: Life Is Good,  Friendship
Large Butterfly 
Butterfly trio
Distress Oxides 
Distress Inks 
Mica Powders
Black onyx and Smokey Grey versafine
Clear embossing powder

Blend Spun Sugar , Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose Distress Inks through the circle easy frame. Remove frame.
Using same inks, randomly blend through the Sunset and Honeycomb D'Inkables. Draw round a few random honeycombs with a black pen
Stamp the Keyboard, Friendship stamp and Sound Waves (Wibble), in black onyx versafine
On seperate piece of card stamp and heat emboss the butterflies and coloyr in with Mica Powders and a water brush
Adhere using 3d glue gel

For the male version blend Iced Spruce and Faded Jeans Distress Oxides and use the Regular Dots D'Inkable
The Dots Sound waves stamp was stamped in Iced Spruce DO and the Life Is Good sentiment in Smokey Grey versafine
The Keyboard was stamped in black onyx versafine

Two different cards using the same elements with a few adaptations.

I hope you enjoyed today's post and I'll be back next Thursday with another Bee Crafty blog post

Marleen DT - Helraldic Samples

Hey guys..

Its once again wednesday and my turn to share some inspiration for BeeCrafty..
Today I want to share the samples I made for Bev's recent show live from the NEC.
Did you go to the NEC?? Was it amazing?? I have never been to the NEC but its a dream of mine.. Maybe when my kids gets a bit older?

Anyway, samples... Sadly, mine didnt make it to the screen. Stamps landed with me in Ireland too late so even though samples was made same day as I recieved the stamps, there wasnt enough time to get them returned in time.. It happens, post here in Ireland can be a bit of a.. challenge.. lol

But.. I still loved making my samples and although I already shared them on my facebook and in the BeeCrafty Facebook Group, I still wanted to share them here with a few words on how I made them.

 This one is a wee bit hard to show off. Basically I made the card with distress ink and stamped the wee crowns and used the alphabet to stamp "BeeCrafty". I then made an accetate overlay that matched the card size (I folded a wee sliver to attatch it on the back, so it folds around the card), I stamped the helmet with archival ink onto the accetate (please not it takes quite sometime to fully dry) and once fully dry, attached it to the card.

This one is all about the Lustre Luxe.. I coloured the art board with the Golden Gate Lustre Luxe and I used the Honey Pearl Lustre Luxe through the Shattered Glass Dinkable. I put more Golden Gate Lustre Luxe through the Feather Dinkable.

I then stamped my Heraldic images on to white card and fuzzy cut them. I then used the Moon Stone Lustre Luxe as a gilding wax and added, with my finger tip, a wee bit over the images.
I added the images with silicone glue to add a bit of dimention.

 This one is very simple, its just distress ink with stamping and black heat embossing. I made the wee banner with the alphabet and more distress ink. I finished with a few water splashes.

 This one is my favorite I think. I come from Denmark and have always been a royalist and very proud of our royal family. This set of stamps just scream "royal" at me hence how this card came together.

Its a simple matter of distress ink, water splashed and stamping. And I just finished with a few gems.

 This one is a play on a tecnique I have done several times now. I have a YOUTUBE HERE on how I make it. The strips are coloured with Lustre Luxe and I stamped with archival.
You need a permenant ink to stamp on the Lustre Luxe.

And then this one.. Last one.. Again image screams royal lol.. Its made a s the blue royal one above, simple distress ink, heat embossed with black and water splashes. I used purple as this too is a very royal colour. A greeting could always be added later if needed.

And that is it for today. Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Charlee DT - Helradic Samples

Morning crafters. This week I'll be sharing my samples that unfortunately didn't make it in time to the girls for Bev to take on Fridays show. Bev will be back on our screens with some amazing wizard of oz stamps on the 14th of November !!!! Can't wait for you to see these !!

For this one I used distress oxides on the background. Stamped the banner in distress oxides and used some dinkables also with the oxides. I stamped the words in versafine this translates as I hope the memory of our friendship will be everlasting.

This one was made buy "smooshing" oxides. Then blending some oxides through some dinkables. And stamps stamped in versafine.

This is probably one of my favourites. I painted the mdf board in a gold acrylic paint. Using the brick wall dinkable I blended through some walnut stain oxide. I then die cut an oval aperture in kraft card and heat embossed the knight. I stamped EQUES which stands for knight in versafine. I then die cut about 6 oval frames in cheap white card ( if you have foam you could use this )  I also cut a frame out in black. I stamped the XL Crackle over the black frame and then put some gilding wax over it. I die cut an oval out of acetate. I stuck all the layers of the white frames together, then glued the acetate on top, the stuck the black frame on top. Then lined it up and stuck it to the craft card then onto the mdf board.

For this one I stamped the Lion onto my rubber embossing matt, then layed my card on top in the position I wanted the lion. I gave a really rub to pick up the ink and any bits I missed out I just filled in with a black liner pen. I stamped the Lion on the other side of the card. I then covered the lions with masking fluid and blended my oxides over the top and then splashes some water on. Used the distressed diamond dinkable. After rubbing the masking fluid off I stamped the words and crown in versafine.

This one was done by smooshing oxides and using the dinkables in the same colours. The crown was stamped in versafine sepia and the heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The words were stamped also in versafine sepia.

I stamped the banner in versamark and used some copper embossing powder onto black card. The words were stamped in a gold pigment ink. It stands for "For Honor" I then distressed the edges using a craft knife although I would advice a nail file or some sanding paper.

Lastly with this one I scribbled some sparkle pens onto my card and went over and blended it all in with lots of water. Then I took some cling film put it onto the card and made loads of creases. Once dry I stamped all the small crowns randomly in a purple versfine. The crown was clear embossed and went over with some gilding wax and stamped the words in versafine.

That's all from me for this week. Hope you enjoyed

Until next week
