Emily DT - Ghetto Rat

Hi everyone, Emily here again with some more inspiration for you all. I have rediscovered my Banksy stamps this week as we were using them for our Hochanda samples this month. I wanted to make a card using the Ghetto Rat so here is the card I have made...

I started by cutting a square of white card and choosing some colours of paint. I used some cheap poster paint in pink, purple, blue and lime green. I splattered the paint onto the card using a paint brush then used a piece of paper to lift some of the paint off and flatten out the drops. This created a cool pattern and added texture.

Once the paint was dry I chose come inks in similar colours and stamped the small wire circle frame randomly and then stamped the Ghetto Rat onto some white card in pink. I cut him out and mounted him onto the background using foam pads.

I chose a sentiment and stamped it in purple in the corner of the card, then mounted the whole thing onto purple then onto a card blank. 

I love how this turned out and shows you can use 'girly' colours with the Banksy stamps, they don't all need to be bright or grungy colours.

I hope you like the card too!

See you next week

Lorre-Anne DT - Can't Buy Love

Hi everyone, it's time for me to post this weeks DT project for Bee Crafty.  I'm now going to have a regular Monday spot and this week I have decided to make the following card.  I wanted to make a project using just 1 colour of Distress Ink, and opted for the gorgeous Mermaid Lagoon.

I've decided to do this blog post as a tutorial with photos showing each stage of the process, I apologise in advance for the lighting in some of the photos as it was a strange day up here in Scotland with bright sunshine one minute and black clouds the next!

The finished card is as shown below.

What you will need -

What you need to  do -

Using Mermaid Lagoon DI, stamp the diamonds along the centre of the card.

Taking a piece of white card, cut slightly smaller than the card blank, use a blending tool to blend Mermaid Lagoon DI around all the edges.

Stamp the large heart using Mermaid Lagoon DI, and using a water brush, flick some ink over the heart to create this splattered effect.

Stamp the sentiment using Mermaid Lagoon DI and cut out.  Cut a piece of white card slightly larger and blend ink around the edges.  Mat the sentiment on to the larger card with glue.

Mat the distressed diamonds onto the blended ink card.

Add Glossy Accents to every diamond.

This is the effect you will end up with - looks really good on the distressed diamonds!

When you have adhered everything to the card this is what you will end up with.

I hope you enjoyed todays tutorial and that you'll think of giving this card a go.  If you have any comments then please do get in touch.

Until next time
Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Emily DT - Poppy Border

Hi everyone,

I hope you're all having a nice week. This week I have made a beautifully simple card, which takes no time at all to make.
Here it is...

I started by cutting a square of card the size I wanted. I inked my poppy border stamp using Distress Inks. I used my mini inks which meant I could use it like a pen to colour the parts I wanted each colour. You could also do this using Distress pens or something similar. I spritzed it with water to make sure the ink was wet and stamped it down one side of my card.

I stamped a sentiment in the top left corner and finished it by mounting it onto black card.

This card took literally a few minutes to make and I think it is so effective. I love how it turned out and I hope you do too! 

See you next week

Marleen DT - Time flies

Time flies...
In more ways then one..

Hey Bloggers and welcome..
Im late with todays post.. I got the chance to meet up with a friend today, havent seen her in a long time so I grabbed the chance and forgot all about my blog post for BeeCrafty...

I had a youtube planned but being forgetful today, means it will have to wait lol.. So Thank god, I have a spare project lying.. And very fitting for today lol..

 I made this one when I was working on the samples for Sam's upcoming show on Hochanda. I made a sample on black card with the same sparkly embossing powder. I loved the combo and wanted to do it again. So that is how this card came about.

I used several stamps here, ill make a list below, but all ive done is stamping with versamark and heat embossed with black glitter embossing powder. I then took a white sharpie and coloured in. The lines on the card as well as my greeting is stamped with a white inkpad.. I finished with faux stitching, also made with my white sharpie and a black mat before mounting onto my card.

Very simple card, but its far more sparkly in real life then it shows on the picture.

Stamps Ive used:
The flower corners are an older set also from BeeCrafty.

Emily DT - Glitter Stars

Hi everyone, this week has gotten away from me and I'm a bit late posting this week so apologies for that! The card I have made this week could be used for lots of occasions, and would work as a birthday card for a child if you changed the sentiment.

Here is the card I have made...

I started by colouring some linen card with Distress Inks. I used Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade. I then used the inner part of the large star Inkable to make a star in the middle. I went round this star with Cosmic Shimmer glue.

I then used the small star d'inkable to randomly add some stars in Distress Ink and glitter paint.

I stamped the Decision To Try sentiment onto some spare white card and cut the words out. I stuck them on using foam pads and mounted the whole thing onto silver glitter card.

I hope you like how it turned out, it is a bit different from my usual offerings!

See you next week :)

Lorre-Anne DT - Dare To Dream

Hi everyone, for this weeks Bee Crafty DT project I decided to make the card below.  Now this card is a first for me as I used texture paste, and I've got to say I really enjoyed playing with this and think it may be a regular feature on my cards.

To make this card you will need -
How to make -

  • Cut a piece of black cardstock slightly smaller than the card blank, and a piece of white card slightly smaller than this.
  • Take the cut piece of white card and apply some texture paste randomly through sections of the oval lace template.  Leave this to dry.
  • Once dry, blend some Picked Raspberry around the outer 4 corners and then Wilted Violet across the remaining white areas.
  • Cut another smaller square of white card, and blend Wilted Violet over the entire piece, then using Versafine ink stamp the sentiment.  Leave it to dry for a few minutes, then using a water brush add some Picked Raspberry to the letters.  Mat this onto a slightly larger piece of black card.
  • Colour the white flowers using the Distress Inks.
  • Add the sentiment to the card using foam pads, and arrange the flowers around this, also using foam pads to adhere them.
  • Finish off by gluing some black gems to the centre of the flowers.
That's this weeks project finished...hope you liked it!  I'll be back next Thursday with a new DT project for you.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Kerrie DT - Wordage - 'Never Regret' - and some Beautanicals too

Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Design Team post for Bee Crafty

Oh my Word!!! It has been a crazy week here at KraftyKezzlaHQ - we have no broadband at home for 3 weeks so I am having to use my mobile as a Wifi Hotspot which I do not have too much data left so I am having to use my internet sparingly - not good for a social media geek lol

So while I can not be online as much as I would like I have been moving all the bedrooms around in my house!! which is nuts as its 4 rooms that are now all topsy turvy while I sort through and delclutter... but it also means some good news... Hubby and I are moving our bedroom to the back of the house which will then leave me free to use the front room we are now in as my Work/Office/Kraftroom like we always intended to eventually... it is going to be amazing to be able to leave all my stuff out where I like and be able to shut the door at night without having to shift ot all away each night YAY!! It is going to be mega!!

Now back to my post after all that chatting lol

This week I am sharing with you an older make from me where I have used the fabulous 'Never Regret' - WORDage Stamp as the main focal point of the card and then created a flower from the leaves of the 'Maple - solid' stamp and the larger branch from 'Branches' stamp set both from the BEAUtanical Collection

For the flower I repeat stamped the maple leaf onto pearlescent card, fussy cut them, embossed them from the reverse and layered them up overlapping to create the bloom, the leaves I stamped using the branche stamp which I also fussy and fixed under the flower.

I teamed these lush stamps with some pink, brown, kraft and cream cardstock, some circular dies, flatback pearl and some polka dot ribbon, on a 7x7" cardblank

Thanks You so much for visiting my post today - please come back to the Bee Crafty Team Blog again soon for more yummy inspiration from the Amazing Design Team

Emily DT - Diamonds

Hi everyone, I have been busy making samples for upcoming Hochanda shows this week, but I hve managed to find time to make a card for this week's inspiration blog.

A lot of the time when I make cards I have a clear idea of what I imagine the finished item to look like, however in this case I didn't. I started by choosing random stamps and colours of ink. Sometimes when I do this it ends up in the bin, but I was happy with what I finished up with this time.

Here is the card I have made...

I started with the distress diamond background stamp, and created a background using Spun Sugar and Crushed Olive distress inks.

I punched a white circle of card and chose a sentiment which fit it. I ended up with the small 'Glad I Did It' sentiment.

I then stamped some butterflies onto white card and partially coloured them with a distress ink pen.

I stuck the circle on using foam pads and then added the butterflies. Whenever I use these butterflies I always stamp the butterfly onto the background first, then cut out the wings of the coloured one and stick it over the top. This way you do not have to worry about cutting out the butterfly's body and antennae. I then bend the wings up to add dimension to the card.

I mounted it onto black card and then onto a card blank. 

I am pleased with how this card turned out and used a colour combination I do not often use.

I hope you like it too!

Lorre-Anne DT - Never Regret

Hi everyone...I'm back with my regular Thursday DT post for Bee Crafty.  Hope you're all good!

This weeks project involeves a bit of masking, some blending and of course stamping :-)

This is the card I have made, and this is how you can make it too!

What you will need -

What to do -
  • Take the piece of white card, and mask off a section, using a blending tool blend Squeezed Lemonade from the bottom up to just below centre, then blend Twisted Citron from the top down.  Blend well where both colours meet.
  • Keep masking tape on and stamp the small leaf using both DIs over this blended section.
  • Remove masking tape.
  • Using Versafine, stamp the sentiment in the top right corner of card.  Mat this onto a piece of black card slightly larger, and adhere to card blank with glue.
  • On a spare piece of white card, stamp 2 green and 1 yellow leaves.  Draw around the outline with a black pen, then cut out.
  • Apply glossy accents to all the cut out leaves and leave to dry.
  • Use glue to adhere the leaves to the bottom of the card.
That's me finished for another week, if you have any questions or comments please do get in touch.

Marleen DT - Banksy Boy with Dag

Hey Bloggers
For todays DT project for BeeCrafty, I've made a little quick card.
I pulled out my circle stensils, my Banksy Boy with Dog stamp and my Happy Birthday greeting stamp. I also used my brick stencil and my favorite colour combo (red/orange/yello) distress inks.
This one was really fun to make. I used the circle stencil and the distress ink to make my circles, Then overlayed my brick stencil and added a bit of ink through that. I only went lightly with my ink tool. If i had pressed harder the brinks would have stod out more. I then stamped my boy, my dog and my greeting in black and finished by simply using a black mat on to my card blank.
Avery quick project, one that could be done in many different colour combo's.
 But that is it from me for today.
 Thanks for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Dt Kerrie - beautanicals Large Flower's - Bee Crafty

Hiya and welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty Stamps

For all of last week I was colouring up and playing with the New Large Flower stamps from the Beautanicals rage that Bev showed for the first time at Alexandra Palace recently they are amazing stamps so detailed and massive and I love them

So I stamped them out with light grey ink and the coloured them up using my Copic Markers below are a.couple of photos of some of the versions I coloured

When making some in to samples I kept my card making very simple and only used some wordage stamps for sentiments as I think the flowers are so detailed they stand out well by themselves

Thank you for visiting the Bee Crafty blog today please come back soon to see more creations from the Brilliant Design Team
