Karen DT - Life

Good morning everyone

What's everyone got planned for today?  Hope you all get some crafting done 😊

I'm back today with my weekly Bee Crafty DT blog over on
Buzzy Goings On At Bee Crafty Blog

I just love to mix up all my stamps and see what I come up with.
Today I'm showcasing a card I made using the following stamp sets :

Splatter Swirl Upright Rectangle Frame
Ground Elder 
Life & Rain

Also used:
Dinkable: Honeycomb
Distress Oxides:  Cracked Pistachio, Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry
Distress Ink: Tumbled Glass
Versafine black onyx ink

  • I stamped the Rectangle Frame in the Versafine in the centre of my card blank 
  • Masking off the edges, I blended the DI from darker, to lighter, towards  the centre of the frame
  • I blended Cracked Pistachio DO through the Dinkable around opposite corners of the frame
  • Whilst the frame was still masked off, I inked up the Ground Elder in Cracked Pistachio and Wilted Violet DO and stamped it inside the frame. I also added a hint of Picked Raspberry DO onto the heads of the flowers and re stamped it
  • I stamped the LIFE part of the sentiment across the middle of the stem, in Cracked Pistachio DO and the remainder of the sentiment in black versafine 

I hope you like the combination of these stamps and colours.

Marleen DT - Butterflies and oxides

Hey Bloggers..

Once again wednesday and my turn to share inspiration for
For today I've had a play with a couple of stamps and my Oxides.
I used the "Birds and Butterflies set 1" and "Splatter Swirl Elongated rectangle"
The background is made using the mop up tecnique. I simply just added some oxide to my mat and sprayed a bit of water over the ink. Then simply just mopped up the ink with my card stock.

I then stamped my rectangle and made a lustre luxe spray by mixing a bit of lustre luxe and water into a mini mister and sprayed over my background.

 My butterflies are stamped, fuzzy cut and then smothered with Oxides.
I finished by matting and layering my background and arranging my my butterflies.

And that is all from me 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 - Balloon Girl

Morning everyone. Hope you've all had a good week. Here's my blog for today. Hope you enjoy. As ever if you have any questions, leave a comment below and I'll do my best to answer.

What you'll need:

Step 1:

Cut some white card down to the size you wish. Scribble the pink and purple sparkle pens onto the card. Taking a large flat wet brush, do a wash over the card moving the colour all over the card.

Step 2:

Once you're happy with how your background looks. Lightly spritz the moon stamp with water and stamp onto the card. Don't put too much pressure onto the stamp. Leave for about 30 seconds remove and then blot with a paper towel.

Step 3:

Ink up the balloon girl stamp in versafine and stamp her in the position you want her on the card. Stamp the shoot for the moon sentiment in the bottom right corner, also using versafine.

Step 4:

Using just the smaller stars on the dinkable, blend some black soot distress ink through the dinkable in random places all over the the background. Then once your happy, simply matt onto some black card and the adhere to your card blank.

Hope you like this week inspiration. If you don't have any sparkle pens, you could get a similar look with whatever ink,pens etc you may have that react with water.

Until next week

Lorre-Anne DT - Hochanda samples

Hi everyone, for this weeks Bee Crafty blog post I'm sharing the samples I made for Sam's recent shows on Hochanda.  

Materials - 

I cut white card slightly smaller than the card blank, and blended a circle of Squeezed Lemonade DI in the centre of the card.  I then used Versafine ink to stamp the moon on this yellow circle, masked it off then carefully blended Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concord distress inks all over the rest of the card - heavier at the edges and lighter towards the centre.  I then used Versafine to stamp some wildflowers along the bottom, then blended Black Soot DI around the edges of the card.  I finished by adding some ticker tape sentiments, and some white gesso paint flicks.

I cut various mats and layers from white and black card stock.  I took the smallest white square and blended Candied Apple Distress Oxide through the heart easy frame, I then flicked water droplets on this and dabbed with some kitchen roll.  I placed the inkable heart over, then flicked some Black Soot Distress Oxide over the card.  I finished by adding some faux stitching with a black pen, some ticker tape sentiments and a few butterflies.  I matted and layered and glued to the card blank.

I cut various mats and layers from white and coloured card.  On the smallest white square I blended some Spiced Marmalade through the maple leaf, I then placed the actual leaf over the blended leaf and blended some Vintage Photo around the edges... this gave the 3D effect seen above.  I stamped a bird using Vintage Photo, used a water brush to add some colour, and added a few ticker tape sentiments.  I finished by adding some gems, matted and layered and glued to the card blank.

I masked off an area of the card and blended some Salty Ocean and Twisted Citron in it, I kept the masking tape in place and then using Versafine ink to stamp the wildflowers.  I carefully removed the masking tape, added a few stamped butterflies and a ticker tape sentiment.  I finished by adding some gems, before matting to some black card and attaching to the card blank.

I cut black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and white card slightly smaller again.  On the white square of card I blended some Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord through the circle easy frame.  Keeping the circle template in place, I used Versafine ink to stamp the wildflowers.  I finished by adding some ticker tape sentiments and a few gems before matting to the black card, and attaching to the card blank.

I cut brown card slightly smaller than the card, and white card slightly smaller again.  I used a scoreboard to score lines across the white card, then blended some Vintage Photo around the edges before matting it to the brown card and gluing to the card blank. On spare white card I blended various colours of Distress Ink through the maple leaf template, and cut each leaf out.  I arranged these around the card, and finished by adding a sentiment and some stamped butterflies.

I really enjoyed playing with these stamps, and I hope you like what I designed using them.  Please pop over to the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog and you can see the fabulous creations my team mates have came up with.  I'll be back next week to share another project with you all.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Jane DT - A Kaleidoscope of Butterflies


Once again it is my turn to share a project on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty Blog and this week I have chosen my favourite design team sample from last weeks HOCHANDA shows...

There may be a bit of a pattern emerging with my posts in that it is becoming very obvious that I love butterflies!!  Here are the products that I used...

* Circle MDF Art Board
* Moon - Art Stamp
* Birds and Butterflies - Art Stamps
* Wildflower 2  - Beautanicals Stamp
* Ticker Tape Sentiments - Wordage Stamps
* Regular Dots - D'Inkables Stencil
* Acrylic Paint
* Crackle Paint
* White Embossing Powder
* Silver Gilding Wax

1) After priming the art board with gesso I put texture paste through the regular dots stencil, then added some blue acrylic paint to crackle paint and painted the whole piece.
2) Once dry I stamped on the moon and wildflowers using versamark ink then heat embossed with white powder.
3) To highlight the stencilling I added some silver gilding wax.
4) Then the time consuming part!! I stamped lots of the 3 smallest butterflies in black Versafine ink and clear embossed with powder over the top.
5) After cutting them out I coloured them using different shades of blue alcohol markers and then used clear sparkle pen to add a gentle shimmer.

6) I planned out where I wanted the butterflies to be, then attached them using glue gel.
7) I chose the sentiment I wanted from the ticker tape set and stamped using versamark onto black card, then heat embossed again in white.
8) I cut the words and phrases out then placed them where I wanted them to go.

I hope you were able to catch the shows last week.  If not they do remain on the HOCHANDA website to rewind for about 2 weeks so there is still time to watch them!

Have a lovely weekend and happy crafting!

Jane xx

Marleen DT - Rainbow scull

Hey bloggers
and welcome to my blog.

Today is my turn to share a bit of inspiration for

Todays card was actually my daughters idea.. Long story short, I was stuck for an idea for my digital design team, and my girl suggested making a rainbow.. The background I used today was my first play and just didnt look for the intended card, but I then teamed it with my tophat scull stamp and bingo, we had a winner.. I also used one of the cog stamps. Find them all in the STORE.
Its a very simple card, but guess that is what I do best lol
I used distress inks but I guess you can use what ever inks you want.
I used the following colours:
Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard seed, twisted citron and mermaid lagoon.

I started in the middle with the yellow, and then worked my way out on either side letting the colours overlap a little bit.
I then stamped my scull stamp and heat embossed in black. I also made a mask of the scull on post-it notes while I had the stamp out.

I then masked of the scull and stamped my cogs around it. I didnt heat emboss the cogs as I didnt want them as bright as my scull.

And that is it really. A very simple card, but very colourful.
Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.

 Happy Crafting

Lorre-Anne DT - Wonderful in every way

Hi bloggers, I'm back up on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog with my weekly Bee Crafty DT project, and this week I'm using my Distress Inks.  I decided to ink through the lace template this time round to get this nice bright effect.

What you will need -
What to do -
  • Cut black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and white card slightly smaller again.
  • Take the white card, place the template over the top,, then randomly blend Ripe Persimmon and Seedless Preserves through it.  Remove the template, and mat the card on to the black card, then glue to the card black.
  • Using Versafine ink, stamp the flowers out, and add some colour using a water brush and the inks.  Attach to the upper left hand side of the card using glue.
  • Finish off the card by stamping the sentiment using Versafine, cut out and mat on to black card.  Attach to the card using glue.
If you're looking for some more inspiration then remember to check out the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog where you'll find lots of projects from the Design Team.  If you have any questions then please do leave me a comment and I'll get back to you.
