Paula DT - The Bird is the Word

Shopping List

Distress Ink: Faded Jeans & Mermaid Lagoon
Inkable: Egyptian Gods
Dinkables: Egyptology
WORDage Sets: Life Words 1


* Take a card blank and place the large bird Inkable down off the edge of the card, as shown.
* I used DI Mermaid Lagoon across the whole of the Inkable.
* Took DI Faded Jeans and just highlighted parts of the bird like the edge of feathers. Repeat the process using the small D'inkable bird.
* I stamped the wording twice using a stamp press; stamped once in the DI Mermaid Lagoon then I inked the bottom half of the word only using the DI Faded Jeans.


* I used some masking tape to make 2 stripes across the card front.
* Take Mermaid Lagoon and Faded Jeans and ink around the masking tape and all the card edges.
* I used the large bird Inkable wings to make a pattern in the middle of the card. Then I used the small bird Dinkable on the outside edges of the tape.
* Use the small bird Dinkable within the centre of the card; use the top half of the same stencil along the top and bottom edges of the card.
* To finish, use a fine liner to define the masked off area. Stamp the quote in Faded Jeans DI.

Jane DT - Papyrus Plaque


Today on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog I am sharing one of my Egyptian samples with you.  The new stamps and stencils were fab to work with and I really wanted to use the large background to create my own papyrus to use on one of the art boards.

To make the papyrus I started with some cheap tracing paper that I coloured with watered down acrylic paint.  Once this was dry I stamped the background using archival ink then added some splashes of paint...

I then tore pieces from the sheet and used a dark brown ink around the edges...

To create the main plaque I used one of the MDF art boards, first coating it with gesso then adding crackle paste to areas...

Once this had dried washes of acrylic paint were added in various shades of brown, some was also dripped from the top to add even more of an aged look and some burnt umber antiquing cream was added to the crackled areas...

Stencilling was added to the background using one of the d'inkables and gold paint...

Next the sphinx was stamped onto the board using Versafine and then clear embossed...

I used permanent pens to add a bit of extra colour to the sphinx then stuck the papyrus onto the plaque using gel medium.  Finally one of the words was stamped onto card, distress ink added around the edges and then layered onto the art board on another piece of papyrus...

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

* MDF - Art Boards Landscape
* Art Stamps - Sphinx
* Backdrops XL - Egyptian
* Wordage - Life Words 1
* D'inkables - Egyptian Set

Thank you for taking a look, happy crafting!

Marleen DT - Hochanda Samples

Hello Bloggers..

Once again my turn to share some inspiration for BeeCrafty and today I want to share my samples for the recent show on Hochanda.

Did you see the show?? Arent those goodies amazing??
We are history nuts in our house and the egyptian history is on top of the list here. My son (12) sat next to me when I made my samples and told me the meaning of all the symbols.

Anyway.. you can find all the goodies over in the BeeCrafty STORE so do pop over for a good nosy..

Here are my samples:
(I must appologise for the bad photoes. I had to take the pics late in the evening and lighting was terrible)

This one is distress ink and gold embossing powder. I then took the hieroglyphics strip stamp and stamped with versamark ink and added mica powder on top. Once the mica has been buffed a bit it shows when tipped in the light.

This one is Lustre Luxe on an MDF artboard. I stamped my background with distress oxide. (please note the oxide WILL dry on the Lustre BUT can be rubbed off with a bit of effort) all the other symbols I stamped in black Archival ink which will dry and stay put.
The little strip going across the artboard, is just a card strip with added Lustre Luxe. The symbols have been stamped on shrink plastic and shrunk. I got this idea from my teamie Alisa. You may have seen she is the queen of shrink plastic. She makes amazing jewelry using it. 

This one is made as the black one above. Gold embossing, distress ink and mica powder on top of versamark ink.

This one is my favorite I think. The background is made by repeatedly stamping the strip of hieroglyphics in distress ink and then covering the whole background in clear embossing powder. I did the same with the symbol stamp as well, only I fuzzy cut it before adding the powder. I made the mat and y sentiment also using distress ink so it all match in colour.

This one is very simple. Background is stamped with distress oxide ink and then simply stamped the bigger stamps in black on top.

This one is also l;ike that first one, the black one. Simple gold embossing powder and distress ink.

And that is it for today. Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.
Dont forget to come visit me on FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube or my FB page.
 Happy Crafting

Charlee DT - Egyptian Samples

Morning crafters. Make sure you tune into hochanda today at 12 and 4 to see Bev showcase these stunning unique Egyptian stamps.

I'm sharing my samples I made for today's shows.

This one was used with the lustre luxes through the new dinkables and some foil around the edges.

  Distress oxides on the background. Heat embossed the sphinx and coloured in with a gold gel pen.

  I heat embossed the Pharaoh and used some foil at the bottom.

I found a tee pee card tutorial on you tube to create this card. And heat embossed different images on all the sides.

  I cut some squares into equal sizes and used distress oxides to get the vibrant colours.

I went through this inkable with a gold pen and then with a white gel pen. This was all done on craft card.

I used pebeo sand paste through the inkable and then went over with some gold gilding wax.

This one I coloured ranger texture paster with my distress inks and went through both inkables with it.

That's all from me for this week. Don't forget to tune in to hochanda 12 and 4 today to get your hands on these stunning stamps and inkables and dinkables.

Until next week

Lorre-Anne DT - Distress Oxide Flower

Hi everyone, I'm back with my usual Monday Bee Crafty blog post and for this week's DT project I'm sharing a card I made using 2 colours of Distress Oxide and some black ink.  

What you need - 
What to do -
  • Cut black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and white card slightly smaller again.
  • Smoosh some oxides on to a blending mat, spritz with water and drag the white square through it.  Dry with a heat tool, spritz with water and repeat until desired look is achieved.
  • Take the lily stamp and spritz with water, stamp this onto the card and hold for a minute or two.  When you remove you should have a pale impression of the stamp, dry using a heat tool then restamp over this using Versafine ink.... this gives a really subtle effect to the finished image.
  • Use Versafine to stamp the sentiment in the top corner.
  • Blend some Spiced Marmalade through the dots randomly over the card.  Mat this on to the black, and glue to the card blank.

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

Jane DT - Love is in the Air Art Journal Page


As it is almost Valentine's Day I decided that this week on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty Blog I would share with you a heart filled art journal page...

I started by using a palette knife to apply white gesso to the page then some crackle paste in areas...

Next I applied some pink tones using watercolour pigment sticks, adding extra across the crackle paste to get a deeper colour into the crackles.  I used the same shades of acrylic paint, applying it in patches with my fingers and then added in some blue for a bit of contrast...

For my background I then added some stamping.  I used two of the texture border stamps with a blue and pink archival inkpad and the XL script stamp (one of my go to stamps!) with black archival.  For even more interest I then used the heart d'inkable with white gesso and added a few white splatters...

For my focal points I wanted some big and bold hearts, so I stamped the 3 different sizes of style wire hearts onto card with archival ink and after cutting them out added paint then some of the script stamp.  When they had been stuck to the page I coated them with glossy accents and whilst still wet added fine glitter and a chunky glitter to them...

Once these had dried over night I decided that I wanted the hearts to become balloons so drew in the strings and then stamped the Love sentiment onto a piece of card which was coloured with paint to match the page...

A last touch of extra sparkle was then added using a clear sparkle pen to areas of the page.

Here are the links to the products used...

* Backdrop Frames - Style Wire Hearts
* Backdrops - XL Script
* Backdrop Borders - Texture Borders
* Wordage - Love
* D'Inkable - Hearts

Thank you for taking the time to look, happy crafting!
