Charlee DT - Stamping with water

Morning everyone. Hope you've all had a good week. This weeks blog I've done a few variations of this card and I just love the effect of the moon which is just stamped with water. Hope you enjoy and as ever please feel free to ask any questions and I'll do my best to answer.

What you'll need:

Step 1:

Cut a strip of white card and blend the top half in peacock feathers and the bottom half in salty ocean. Place your moon stamp on an acrylic block and spritz with water. ( you want to spritz enough water so it covers the whole stamp but not so much that the stamp is dripping with water) Then place the stamp in the corner of the card and press down for about a minute so the oxides get more chance to react with the water, gently lift the stamp off and blot with a paper towel.

Step 2:

Ink up the Lily stamp in the onyx black and stamp the Lily where you want it on the card. Then ink up the wildflower 3 stamp in the smokey gray and stamp randomly around the Lily doing 2nd and 3rd generation stamping to get more of an effect of them being in the background. Once your happy go over the lily with a clear sparkle pen.

Step 3:

Take your card blank ( mine is simply just an A4 card folded in half ), ink up the splatter boarder in peacock feathers and stamp all round the edge of the card. Then stamp the being happy sentiment towards the bottom of the card leaving enough room for the strip of card you just did.

Step 4:

Matt your strip of card with some black card ( I went round the edges of the black card with the clear sparkle pen ). Add some foam tape to the back and adhere to your card.

And that's pretty much it. The ones I did below instead of cutting a strip of card I just masked of half the card and stamped directly onto that. Just make sure you use low tack tape and remove it very gently otherwise you may risk pulling some of the card off ( which happened to me )

That's all from me for this week. Hope you enjoyed this blog. If you have a go at this please put up pictures in the group on facebook as I'd love to see. Be sure to tune in on Hochanda this Thursday 27th at 11am and 4pm to watch Sam bring some amazing stamps and to see mine and the other new DT's first lot of samples. Hope you all have a good week.

Until next week

Lorre-Anne DT - Believe

Hi everyone, it's time for me to share this weeks Bee Crafty DT project for my blog post for Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty.  I decided to get my Brushos out for this weeks card as I haven't played with them for a couple of weeks.

Materials needed - 
What to do -
  • Cut some black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and some white slightly smaller again.  
  • Take the white card and place the heart template over it, sprinkle on some Brushos and spritz with water - carefully remove the template and allow card to dry.  
  • Use Versafine ink to stamp the dandelion in the centre of the heart.  
  • Take the Live Laugh Dream stamp and only ink up the word Believe using Versafine and stamp in the bottom right corner.  
  • Mat this on to the black card, and glue to the card blank.  Finish off by adding some Stickles to the dandelion.

Just to show the sparkle given by adding some Stickles.

That's another project finished, I hope you liked it, and as always if you do have any questions or comments then please do get in touch.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Jane DT - Gelli Plate Joy


It is time for my latest DT post for Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty and this week I decided to get out one of my crafty tools that I bought a while ago but have not really used too much, my gelli plate!  I wanted to create a background in a different way and this seemed an ideal way to use some of my lovely Bee Crafty stencils...

To create my card I used...
* Acrylic Paint
* Black Ink Pad
* Gelli Plate and Brayer
Here is a close up photo so that you can hopefully see some more detail of the stencils and stamping...
Here is what I did...
1) I used my brayer to apply red and yellow acrylic paint to the gelli plate then took a print off onto card.  The one that I used with this card was made after 2 other prints had been taken.  I then added the damask stencil and took a print.
2) After cleaning the plate I added white acrylic paint and put the oval lace stencil on top.  Again this was the third print I made as I preferred the paler look this created.
3) Once this had been dried off with my heat tool I cut the card down to a 4 and a half inch square and inked around the edges using wild honey distress ink.
4) Again using the wild honey distress ink I added some more texture with random parts of the bubble wrap positive stamp.
5) I then stamped the splatter swirl border along the bottom.
6) After stamping the first coat of ink onto spare paper I stamped the wildflower 3 stamp a couple of times then added the teasels using the first generation of black ink.
7) The final piece of stamping was to add the joy sentiment straight onto the card.
8) To finish it off I layered the design onto black card and then onto a 6" card blank.
It was fun to get out my gelli plate and hopefully it will encourage me to have a go at using it even more with all my stencils.  Until next time I hope you have a lovely week and keep on crafting!

Emily DT - Ghetto Rat

Hi everyone, hope you all managed to catch Bev on Hochanda this week.

There are so many fabulous new stamps being brought out all the time it is easy to forget the ones already in our stash. This week I have used a stamp which I have not used for a while, but is definitely a fave... Ghetto Rat.

Here is the card I have made...

I started by cutting a square of card and added colour using Distress Inks and a blending tool. I chose shades of green as I don't often use it but I always like how it turns out!

I blended from the edge inwards, with the colour fading out towards the centre.

I then blended through the brick inkable in the same colours and stamped the Ghetto Rat in black Memento ink.

I stamped the sentiment onto white card and cut out the sections. I stuck these on using foam pads.

I finished off the card by mounting it onto a black layer, then onto a card blank.

I love it and think that the brick inkable really adds to it. I hope you like it too!

Charlee DT - New oxides and Flower riot stamp

Morning crafters, it's been an exciting week for us new design team members. We got our first stamps to do sample for, which I can't wait for you all to see. For this weeks blog I'm going to use the flower riot stamp seeing as it was on offer last week and many of you ( me included ) snapped the barging up.

What you'll need:

Step 1:

Cut down some white card to 7x7. With your mini blending tool, blend twisted citron, peacock feathers, salty ocean and cracked pistachio oxides ( if you don't have the oxides you can still use the normal distress inks) in random places until all the card is covered. Then spritz some droplets of water all over and blot dry with a paper towel.

Step 2:

Take the distressed diamonds inkable and blend broken china oxide through the stencil all over the card.

Step 3:

Ink up the live laugh dream stamp in the mermaid lagoon distress ink and stamp all over the background. I stamped at a slight angle. Next Ink up the flower riot stamp in versafine ( or whichever black ink you prefer) and stamp in the centre of the card. I used my stamping platform so I could stamp twice to get a darker image. Then ink up the splatter swirl boarder stamp and stamp all round the edge of the card.

Step 4:

Cut some card slightly bigger than 7x7 card you've just done and go round the edges with the sparkle pen. Then adhere it all together and onto the 8x8 card blank.

And that's all there is to it. Hope you found it easy enough to follow and hope it inspires you to have ago. Please post pictures onto the bee crafty stamps group on facebook. Feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Until next week

Lorre-Anne DT - Christmas samples for Bev's Hochanda shows

Hi everyone, I'm sharing the samples I made for Bev's recent Bee Crafty show on Hochanda ... and I was so excited to get my parcel as it was Christmas stamps!  Now anyone who knows me will tell you that my most favourite time of the year is Christmas, so to get lovely new stamps to play with in July is just the best thing ever for me.  I was planning on putting some Christmas tunes on to accompany my crafting...but thought it might just get my 2 wee boys a little too excited for Santa coming!

This is an MDF portrait artboard covered with Moonstone Lustre Luxe, then I heat embossed some Spikey snowflakes with Blue Glitz and Metallic Silver Sparkle WOW powders.  I finished off by tying some white organza ribbon around the left hand side and adding a silver metal snowflake, and adding a sentiment.

This is a 6" x 6" card - I created a panel by masking off a section and blending some Lucky Clover Distress Ink over the card.  I used Onyx Black Versafine ink to stamp the Holly Swirl border stamp over this panel, then I matted this onto some black card. I finished off by adding a stamped sentiment and some green gems.

This is a 6" x 6" card - I heat embossed Feathery snowflakes all over the left hand side using Red Glitz WOW embossing powder, and matted this on to some red card, then glued to the card blank.  I finished off by adding a sentiment from the Everyday Christmas Sentiments stamp set, and some red gems to the upper corner, and to the centre of all the snowflakes.

This is a 7" x 7" card - I created a background using Distress Oxides (Faded Jeans & Broken China), and then stamped the Snowflake Flurry stamp in Faded Jeans randomly over the card.  I matted this on to a square of white card, then onto a square of card with edges coloured with Faded Jeans.  I finished off by adding a panel with a stamped sentiment and a clear snowflake.

This is a 8" x 8" card - I randomly stamped the Snowflake Flurry stamp over a square of white card using Distress Inks (Lucky Clover & Candied Apple), I then cut a circle aperture in the bottom right corner, and added some red ribbon and a bow around the left hand side.  I placed this card over a square of card slightly larger, and used a pencil to draw a faint line around the circle so I knew where to stamp the Everyday Christmas sentiment in Onyx Black Versafine ink.  I coloured around the edges of this card with Candied Apple, then added the stamped panel to this using foam pads.  I cut another larger square of white card, and coloured the edges of this with Lucky Clover, and matted the other cards on to the this, then glued all to the card blank.  I finished off by adding some Star Dust Stickles to the snowflakes to give some sparkle.

This is a 6" x 4.25" tent fold card - I used Onyx Black Versafine ink to stamp the Everyday Christmas sentiment down the left hand side of a piece of white card slightly smaller than the card blank, tied some white organza ribbon around the right hand side and matted this on to some gold mirri card before attaching to the card blank.  I heat embossed 2 MDF snowflakes with Metallic Gold WOW embossing powder, and glued these to the bottom right corner.

I really enjoyed making these samples, and I hope you've enjoyed seeing them, if you have any comments then please do get in touch.  Remember to pop over to the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog too to see lots more inspiration from the Design Team. I'll be back again next week to share a new project with you all.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Paula DT - Break out the sponge

This week my cards are based on a technique that was introduced to me while working with Craft Stamper. The article was published in 2013 and written by Joanne Allison who showcased the technique called "Faux Airbrushing" (Joanne has given me her permission to use the basis of her technique.)

The basis of the technique is using the sponge part of a washing up sponge, you take the sponge and you make a smooth round shape, which you can hold as is, or use an elastic band to hold it into shape. You ink up the sponge with Distress Ink and lightly dab it on to your card, just keep going till you build up the look and colour depth you like - for my piece I was looking for the grass to be darker at the bottom then the colour fading out as you go upwards. To create more colour I used some ink on to some Cut n Dry foam and flicked the ink upwards from the bottom for the grass section and then flicked down from the top for the sky. The last part for this is to use the Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer and lightly spritz the green just over the grass part and the blue over the sky. If you haven't got this tool maybe you have some spray inks which you could use from a height over the piece (cover either grass or sky section when doing this - plus cover your room or use in a box) - the higher you spray the lighter and more speckled the effect. Also the green scourer part of the washing up sponge does make an interesting effect if you ink up and dab lightly - so just have a play and see what you can create with everyday items that surround you.

The stamped centre  4.5"x4.5" - I've masked across the card and only worked the top half.

The next part is stamping the Wildflowers 2 - stamp it several times over the card. Then ink the stamp again but stamp on to a piece of scrap paper then use the second and third impressions over the top to create depth.....keep doing this till you're happy with the look.

The stamped centre measures 3.5"x3.5"

The stamped centre measures 3"x3"

Jane DT - Mixed Media Ghetto Rat


My first blog post as part of the Bee Crafty Design Team and I am so pleased to be here!
I love all things stampy, stencilly, inky and painty, so Bee Crafty products are ideal for me and I decided to make something using all four for my first blog post, so here it is...

To make the wall plaque here is what I used...

* Chipboard squares
* White gesso
* Fluid Acrylics
* Acrylic Shimmer Spray
* Structure Paste
* Gold Gilding Wax
* Gold Acrylic Paint

A close up look...

This is how I made it...

1) I started by painting all the chipboard with white gesso to form a base then used the honeycombe stencil with structure paste on all the pieces.

2) Once these were dry I used magenta, yellow and orange fluid acrylics with white to create different shades in patches across all the squares.  Then I used an acrylic white shimmer spray to bring all the colours together.

3) Using the distressed harlequin stencil and white acrylic paint I added some more pattern in areas, then another layer was created using the distress diamond stamp with archival black ink.

4) Gold gilding wax was then rubbed across the textured areas and the edges to create highlights.

5) Using white cardstock Ghetto Rat was stamped three times using black Versafine ink and then embossed with clear powder over the top, the same was done with the sentiment.

6) To tie these pieces in to the background I added some distress ink to the edges (worn lipstick, dried marigold and mustard seed) and then mounted them onto gold card.

7)  Once all the pieces had been stuck together I wanted a final touch to combine everything so splattered some watered down gold acrylic paint across the whole piece (that is a technical term!!).

8) To provide the 'hanger' I used a cropadile and eyelets and some gold coloured wire, which I twisted around itself so it can be hung up.

I will now get to planning my next project to share with you next week.
Until then happy crafting,

Jane xx

Emily DT - Birds on a Wire (again!)

Hi everyone, I have had another play with my Birds on a Wire stamp this week and have made twos cards the same in different colours.

I was playing around with distress inks and water and ended up making a beautiful background. To me it looked like a colourful sky and so I ended up stamping the birds over the top. I finished it with one of the new Everyday sentiments.

I loved the card so much I tried it in a different colour and was very happy with how it turned out.

Here are the cards I made...

I did a blue and purple one first...

Then I tried it in orange and yellow...

The background is done by mixing distress inks and water and randomly applying them to the card with a paintbrush. I blended the colours a bit with extra water.

I absolutely love these cards and will be trying them in other colours.

I hope you like them too!

Don't forget to watch Bev on Hochanda later today

Charlee DT - BEAUtanicals lily

Morning everyone. This is my first blog as a design team member for the bee crafty girls. I just wanna say a HUGE thank you to Sam, Bev and Juile for giving me the chance and thinking my work is good enough to represent them. And also a massive congratulations to me fellow teamies that also got picked. Looking forward to working with you and the existing DT. Enough rambling I'll get on with the blog.

So this is the card I created for my first blog for bee crafty.

What you'll need:

Step 1:

First stamp the lily stamp onto a piece of white card with the memento ink. Colour it in using what ever colouring products you prefer to use. I used chameleon pens as I can get a better blend with them. Once your happy with how your lily looks blend some ripe persimmon all around the lily. Trim the card down to the size of the lily stamp and then matt it with some black card.

Step 2:

Next cut some black card slightly smaller than your card blank and then some white card slightly smaller than the black. Ink up the value of a moment stamp in the memento towards the right of the white card but in the middle. Ink up just the big flower of the flower distress boarder in ripe persimmon distress ink and stamp in the top right and bottom right corner.

Step 3:

Adhere the black card to your card blank and the white card that you've just stamped on too the black card. Next take the strip of card with the lily on add some foam tape to the back and place it to the left of the card.

Step 4:

Finally to add some finishing touches to the lily, go over the lily with your clear sparkle pen and then add some glossy accents to look like rain drops. ( If you drag a tooth pick or pokey tool through the glossy accents while wet you can change the shape to make it look more like a rain drop )

And that's all there is to it. Hope you enjoyed this blog and your inspired to get creative with all your amazing bee crafty stamps

See you next Tuesday

Lorre-Anne DT - Distress Oxide Memories

Hi bloggers, I'm sharing a new post on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog today showing my Bee Crafty DT project for this week.  I have got the Distress Oxides out again this week, and decided to make the card below.

What you will need to make this card -

  • Use Versafine ink to stamp the dot border along the top and bottom of the card, and to stamp the sentiment in the centre of the heart.
  • Mat this on to the black card, and glue to the card blank.
  • Finish off by using a white gel pen to draw some fake stitching inside the heart, and inside some of the oval lace template sections.

Paula DT - To the moon and back

Do you know what.....I've sat here for 5 minutes thinking 'How do I start this first blog post?' -
I could begin with the fact, that I'm one of four new people who have been given the wonderful opportunity of being part of the Bee Crafty Design Team...the design team are a hard act to follow and I do hope I can keep up with their high standards.

So, my first post consists of showing 3 cards, they are the same but slightly different. Different in the fact I like to play around with positioning. I've used the Art Stamps: Moon , Backdrop Frames: Splatter Swirl Upright RectangleBackdrops: Splat 2  and the BEAUtanicals: Wildflower 2 .

  1. To begin with, I stamped the Splatter Swirl Upright Rectangle directly on to a white card blank.
  2. I then took some cheap copier paper and masked around the rectangle frame leaving the inside clear for me to stamp with in.
  3. I stamped the moon in a grey ink within the rectangle. Then I inked the stamp again and stamped on to a piece of copier paper, cut out and used this as a mask.
  4. I took some blue ink on to a piece of foam and within the rectangle I inked the top half. I then took some purple and inked the bottom half and blended where they met in the middle.
  5. Pick some water up on a paint brush then flick it over the inked area. Dab off again with a bit of paper towel. Continue to do this until you are happy with the look. I did it about 3 or 4 times.
  6. Take some white paint, ink or some watered down white gesso on to a paint brush and gentle flick over the inked area. Do this till you are happy with the look.
  7. Remove the moon mask.
  8. Ink the wildflowers stamp and stamp with in the inked area, as shown.
  9. Remove the mask around the rectangle but replace it within the outer edge of the frame and add the edges of the splatter along part of the edges. Remove mask completely.
  10. To finish, add a suitable sentiment.

Emily DT - Wildflowers

Hi everyone. This week I've been playing with the new stamps from this month again. This time it is the beautiful wildflowers that I have been using. I adore these stamps. They are so versatile and can be used in so many ways.

This week I have made an MDF tag. Here is my project this week...

I started by colouring the MDF tag with Dylusions paint. Once it was dry I stamped the wildflowers a couple of times in grey ink and then some more in black ink.

I added a couple of butterflies at the top and a small sentiment which was stamped onto white card.

As a finishing touch I went round the edge with Moonstone Lustre Luxe.

I hope you like it :)

See you next week when I will be back with a bit of festive cheer!

Marleen DT - MDF tags.

Hey Bloggers..

Well I am officially on holiday all of July as my children are all off school and its time for some quality time, meaning I dont make any projects for my design teams in this month. But but but... I decided to schedule a few posts with a few projects I had lying..

So for this weeks post for BeeCrafty I wanna share a couple of MDF tags.
Both tags was made for past Hochanda shows, but neither was dry and ready to send by my deadline so was left behind..

 This one was made with poly filler. Its a grit one that I got in the £shop and I love using it. I added a thick layer strait to the tag and then took my stencil and pressed into it. Once dry I added lots of guilding wax and distress inks. My girl is also a BeeCrafty stamp and she was stamped, coloured with water colours and fuzzy cut before added to my tag.

 This one here is using the same stencil as above. I used texture paste through the stencil and once dry I added lots of Distress crayon. I love how this one turned out, but honestly would know what to do with it lol

Anyway, here are the goodies Ive used:

And that is all from me today. Thanks for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Emily DT - Birds On A Wire

Hi everyone, who has been lucky enough to get their hands on the new Bee Crafty stamps this month!? I managed to get hold of a couple of them and I have used one in my project this week.

I have made a card using the fabulous 'birds on a wire' stamp. Here is the card I have made...

I decided to use a piece of card I had in my stash which was coloured with Brushos. The colours were turquoise, purple and aquamarine. I stamped and heat embossed the birds stamp in white and trimmed the edges.

I mounted it onto white card and then selected a card blank the right size. Before sticking it on I coloured the card blank with Brushos in the same colours.

I stuck it down using glue and added my sentiment in the bottom right corner using complementary Distress Inks.

I hope you like the card. This is one of my favourite colour combinations of Brushos and I love it with the white embossing.

See you next week!

Lorre-Anne DT - Hochanda samples for Sam's shows

Hi everyone, for this week's Bee Crafty Blog post I have decided to show you some of the samples I made for Sam's recent Hochanda shows, and explain how I made them.  

The materials I used are as follows

This was a really simple card to make, I stamped the circle using Versamark and sprinkled some clear embossing powder over then set it using a heat tool.  I stamped a part of the Live Laugh Dream sentiment and heat embossed this too.  I did some matting and layering, and glued to the card blank.

I created a background using Distress Oxides (Broken China, Fossilized Amber, Vintage Photo, Fired Brick), randomly stamped the swirl off the circle, matted onto card with edges coloured using the Oxides, and finished by adding the Live Laugh Dream sentiment.

I created a background using Distress Oxides (Fossilized Amber, Broken China, Iced Spruce) then using Versafine, stamped the Splatter Swirl Rectangle in the centre - I then inked up the swirl part again and re stamped carefully over the bottom right corner to give me a double swirl rectangle.  I finished off by stamping the Live Laugh Dream sentiment in the centre.  I did some matting and layering and then glued to the card blank.

I again created the background using Distress Oxides (Broken China, Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet) then randomly stamped the swirl off the circle using Versafine ink around the edges.  I stamped the Live Laugh Dream sentiment in the centre, and did a little matting and layering before gluing to the card blank.

I created my background using Distress Oxides (Broken China, Fossilized Amber, Wilted Violet) to randomly stamp the Splatter Swirl Circle all over a white square of card.  I stamped Laugh Live Dream in the centre of the main circle, and finished by matting on to a square of card with edges coloured using Wilted Violet.

That's it until next week bloggers, hope you liked my samples, and if you have any questions please do get in touch.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x
