Jane DT - Butterfly Crackle Tag


Today on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog I wanted to create and share a project with lots of texture and layers so I used one of the MDF tags as they are great for mixed media.  Here is the project that I created...

I started by priming the tag with white gesso before applying crackle paste all over with a palette knife.  This was so that the paste would be at different depths across the tag making a range of crackle sizes once it had air dried...

Next I used shimmery spray inks to add colour.  I love the combination of brown and teal so used sprays within that colour scheme.  I dried the inks between layers to build up the colour gradually until it was as I wanted.
To create a defined edge around the tag I used gold gilding wax and also added a small amount across parts of the crackles too.  For extra dimension and layers I then used the multi mini distressed diamond background stamp with sepia archival ink, then sparkle paste though the distress harlequin d'inkable...

The large butterfly was stamped in the same ink as the diamonds then coloured with spectrum aqua pens.  The same was done twice with the smaller butterfly.  As I wanted the butterflies to be the focal points of the tag, I added glossy accents to all of them then sprinkled in a few micro beads.  Once they had dried I added them with glue gel to create extra dimension...

Finally I added one of the XL sentiments to a piece of card and dusted over with distress ink sprinkling on some water to create some lighter spots...

Here are the links for the products that were used:

* MDF - Large Tag
* Art Stamps - Large Butterfly
* Art Stamps - Birds and Butterflies Set 1
* Wordage - Everyday Sentiments 1 XL
* Backdrops - Multi Mini Distressed Diamonds
* D'inkables - Distressed Harlequin

Marleen DT - Journal page with NEW ART STAMP

Hey Bloggers and Welcome..

Once again my turn to share a bit of inspiration for  BeeCrafty..
For today I've made a journal page with one of the new Art Stamps. You can find them all in the STORE

 I started by stamping my art stamp right in the centre of the page and heat set it with white embossing powder. The stamp I used is called "Circle of life". I love this stamp. Its so unusual, but it was also the inspiration for this page. I used a few more stamps to finish the page. I used the "Texture Circles" and I used the bottom of the "Fly Away" stamp. I stamped using the "Picket Fence" Distress ink hence the smokey colour of the stamping. I finished the page using the "Circles" Dinkable with a white gel pen.

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

Lorre-Anne DT - Hochanda Art Stamps samples

Hi everyone, it's Monday so I'm back to share some of my Bee Crafty DT cards with you all... and this week I'm sharing the samples I made for Bev's recent show on Hochanda.  These new stamps by Bee Crafty are awesome... I've not seen anything like this before and I absolutely love them!


I created a Northern Lights background by blending Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry and Carved Pumpkin over a square of white card before blending some Black Soot Distress Ink around the edges and over the card, leaving some areas a bit lighter so it would look like the Northern Lights.  I flicked some watered down white gesso over the background before stamping the main image using Versafine Ink.  I finished by adding a stamped sentiment.

I created a background using Salty Ocean and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide, then added some texture by blending some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide through the Circles Inkable and Distressed Harlequin Dinkable.  I stamped the main image using Versafine ink, then blended some Black Soot Distress ink around the edges before matting to a piece of black card and gluing to the card blank.  I finished by adding a stamped sentiment, and some detail using a white gel pen.

I cut some black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and some white card slightly smaller again.  I took the white card and stamped a few borders using Evergreen Bough Oxide, a few circles using Carved Pumpkin Oxide and then blended some Twisted Citron Oxide through the Paint Splatter Inkable.  I used Versafine ink to stamp the main image in the centre then matted this on to the black card before gluing to the card blank.  I finished by adding a stamped sentiment.

I cut some black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and some white card slightly smaller again.  I took the white card and created a background using Dylusions paints (Lemon Zest, Bubblegum Pink, & Calypso Teal) and the Stars & Dots Dinkables.  I used Versafine ink to stamp the main image in the centre then matted this on to the black card before gluing to the card blank.  I finished by adding a sentiment stamped on to Calypso Teal covered card, and some detail using a white gel pen.

I took an MDF tag and applied a coat of White Linen Dylusions paint, once dry I blended some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide through the Circles Inkable, then stamped the main image using Versafine ink before blending some Black Soot Distress ink around the edges.  I then gave the MDF a light coat of Tim Holtz Distress Crackle and allowed to dry before adding my sentiment.  I finished by tying a few strands of ribbon through the top of the tag.

That's it for this week bloggers, I'll be back next week to share another card with you all.
Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Paula DT - Sorry I Forgot

Shopping List

Inspired by Banksy ~ Caught in the Rain
Backdrops ~ Bubble Wrap Negative
WORDage Sets: Everyday Sentiments 2
Versafine ~ Onyx Black
Dylusions Spray Ink by Dyan Reaveley ~ Black Marble
Dylusions Spray Ink by Dyan Reaveley ~ Fresh Lime
Promarker in a lime Colour

Have to say, the wording is a tad appropriate as I'm 'Sorry' that my post is a little late today, and its not a completely brand new never been seen card. This card was made for a Hochanda show which was shown in February.

* I measured and cut a piece card smaller than my card blank.
* I stamped the umbrella girl partially off the edge of the card panel. Stamped her again on to copier paper and fussy cut out. This cut out is placed over the first stamped image and used as a mask.
* I put this card panel in a box and then gentle spray the Dylusions ink from a distance to get a light misting. Remove the mask immediately, if you leave it, the ink can soak through on to the image.
* Once the card is dry, randomly stamp the Bubble Wrap Negative across the card.
*Take some of the black Dylusions and flick over the card.
* Colour the umbrella and around the girl with a Promarker or any other make of alcohol marker.
* Finally, stamp the sentiment and adhere panel on to card blank.

Jane DT - Abstract Art Tag


Last week Bev brought some fab new abstract stamps to HOCHANDA so today on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog I thought I would share one of my DT samples with you using the extra large MDF tag...

As the Walking Together stamp has castles on it I thought I would create a fairy tale style starting by blending some acrylic paints for the background.  Then I used the stars d'inkable with white gesso and silver paint.  Splashes of gesso were also added to create more texture...

I used versamark and white embossing powder to stamp the image at the bottom of the tag.  Then to add extra dimension the image was stamped again on heat resistant acetate using black embossing powder and then the piece was domed around the tag but slightly offset from the white image...

I chose one of the stamps from the Everyday Sentiments 1 XL that I thought went well with the feel of the tag and after stamping onto white card matted it onto black and then silver card.  The final touch was to add the black ribbon to the tag...

Here are the links to the products used...

* MDF Tag
* Art Stamps - Walking Together
* Wordage - Everyday Sentiments 1 XL
* D'Inkables - Stars

Thank you for reading and happy crafting,

Jane xx

Marleen DT - New Art Stamps

Hello dear Blogger Friends..

Im late today with my post.. It dawned on me at 3.30pm today that it was wednesday and my turn to share for BeeCrafty.. And by then it was mummy duty.. Sooooo better late then never I suppose but I dont like messing things up..

Anyway.. Did you see Bev on Hochanda yesterday?? She had some brand new art stamps to show.. They are really amazing.. Very different, nothing like I've seen before..
They are really class so DO pop over in the STORE to have a nosy at them..

Sadly due to the snow and dear storm Emma, my stamps only landed the day before the show. Im used to having to work fast as I live in Ireland, (the rest of the team and the Bee's are in the UK), so delivery time and return time is longer for me, but this time not even my super speediest speed was gonna make it lol..
But I was still gonna have a play and I have made a couple of projects I want to share..

 This one is distress ink, more distress ink through a Dinkable and then just stamped the Art stamp and greeting strait on. Matted and layered and voila..
 This one is Lustre Luxe on a MDF tag. the more I play with these Lustre Luxe the better Im getting at blending them. They arent meant for blending as such so must admit Im loving the results im getting. Anyway, more Lustre through another Dinkable and then just stamping and black embossing powder..
 A very simple one this one is.. Just a fade of distress ink, distress ink through Dinkables and stamping..

This one is my favorite of the samples I made. I made a circle card and used distress ink to create the "sun" look. I think it looks a bit like a night sky. I was inspired by the stamp for this one. The fact that the stamp can be turned any direction you'd like, the circle card can also be turned as you wish..
I used Lustre Luxe through the Dinkables to get a bit of shimmer and shine..

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

Charlee DT - Abstract Art Samples

Morning crafters. Hope your all well and ready to tune in to see our amazing Bev on hochanda today at 11am and 3pm. Today I'll be sharing my samples for today's shows and hope you enjoy.

For this one I used distress oxides. I placed them on my blending matt, spritzed with water and dragged my card through. I did each colour at a time to get the rainbow effect.

This is done with Dylusions paint, and the paint through the dinkables as well. I stamped in archival.

This one is the caught in crystal technique. I stamped and heat embossed the image onto heat resistant acetate. Then on the reverse side I poured a bit of pledge floor polish. I scibbled some sparkle pens onto my craft matt and picked them up with a paint brush and splodge them onto the acetate. Once covered I took a 1ply tissue and placed it on top. And used some more floor polish to secure it in place. And then left it to dry over night. Have a look on youtube for the caught in crystal technique which will explain it better than what I have.

This was done with dylusions paint. And stamped in archival.

For this one I stamped the image in the position I wanted. I then stamped onto some paper and cut out at mask. I then stamped the texture boarder and circle in distress oxides and used the splatter dinkable.

For this one I drew bubbles onto black card. Bev has demanded I do a video on how to do this so when I'm not busy at work and full of cold I will get a video made. So keep an eye out. I used the edge of the fly away stamp for the bottom of the sentiment and just the little person flying away.

  I stamped the image in memento onto kraft card and then using a stencil brush I used wilted violet and carved pumpkin, to build up the background. I then stamped the circles and boarders in the same colours.

 The background was done by taking the circle dinkable and going through with microglaze. I left to dry for about half hour. I then put oxides on my blending matt and picked it up with card. I then stamped the circle and boarders in archival. The main image I used glossy paper and picked up loads of different layers of oxides. Once I was happy and it was dry I went over with micro glaze.

That's all from me I hope you manage to catch Bev and get hold of these amazing stamps.

Until next week
Crafty Hugs
