Good morning bloggers and festive greetings to you all. Well if you were fortunate enough to be watching Hochanda this week you would have seen the release of Bee Crafty's new floral range of stamps. All of us girlies on the DT worked our socks off to make some samples for Bev to take with her on tv. Here are a couple of the samples I made for Bee Crafty using the fabulous Star Flowers stamp.
For this project I used:
I applied my salty ocean and mowed lawn distress inks. In the background stamped some flowers using bleach. In the foreground I stamped the star flowers in green and heat emossed. Onto some white card I stamped the flowers in black ink and heat set with clear embossing powder. I coloured in the flowers using distress inks, cut out and applied them to the card.
I absoloutely love these new stamps. Check out all of the latest stamps released from Bee Crafty by clicking here.

Good morning all. It's been a busy old week and I'm probably very much in need of a lie in but despite that I am up bright and early with a whole host of tasks ahead of me.
This is my Bee Crafty blog for this week, I have been extremely busy working on some new samples for Bee Crafty so this is one I made a while ago but hasn't yet been on the blog.
For this project I used:
To make this card I brushed my various shades of blue distress inks over my star template. Banksy boy was stamped and heat embossed with clear ep. I glittered some star die cuts to add a bit of bling and also used the die cut out to add some stars directly onto the card. The shoot for the moon sentiment was stamped in black ink directly onto the card.
That's it from me for this week. I will be back next week to share with you some more of Bee Crafty's beautiful stamps.
Until then, happy crafting,

Colouring is one of the things in card making that I really struggle with. I am useless at shading but I love the Ernie Elf stamp and I wanted to make a card using it.
Here is the card
I recently treated myself to some distress markers so I thought I'd have a go at using them to colour Ernie in. Like I said, shading still eludes me, but I'm happy with how he turned out.
I added the Happy Christmas sentiment and a couple of snowflake embellishments. I also went round the edge with Tea Dye distress ink and a blending tool.
I mounted it onto some very festive metallic red card and then onto a kraft card blank.
Hope you like it!

Good morning to you bloggers. I expect lots of you are busy preparing for this months festivities? Don't forget to take a little time out and for yourselves and visit Bee Crafty to make a christmas list of your own. There have been a number of new stamps released over the past month so if you are after a crafty gift of your own pop over to the online shop.
Today I would like to share with you some of the new stamps that have been released used in conjuntion with some of the old ones.
Stamps used in this project:
First of all I inked the splats and stamped in various places. Then using the splats again I kiss stamped onto music, bubblewrap and script stamps, some with black ink and some without.
I inked the splatter swirl frame with black ink and masked an area so that when I stamped 'inspire' it would just venture outside the frame.
Finally I added some pearly dots and some stickles for a bit of bling.
Thank you for popping over today. I love to hear you comments so feel free to leave one in the box below.
