DT Kerrie - Beautiful Dream - FASHIONette's Peggy

Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty Stamps

Phew, it's the Easter Holiday's... I love Holiday's as I get to spend more time with my lovely Kiddies. This Week our eldest Daughter Ashleigh turns 15!!! where does the time go?? I mean only yesterday I was cuddling my Beautiful Baby Girl in my arms and now she is all grown up

Now back to my post lol... I have been playing with my Copic Markers and Distress Inks this weekend I love love love them but for a bit of a change I have been inspired to use green's and blue's by my lovely friend Tina who sent me a gorgeous Tag with those colour's not so long ago

Today's Make is using some of the Gorgeous stamps from Bee Crafty Stamps


Bee Crafty Products used in this project:

Fabulous Floral - Star Flower - polymer stamp

Other Products used:

Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters
Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black
Versafine Ink - Black
Versamark embossing clear ink
Embossing Powder - Clear (with heat tool)
Die's - Florishes
Copic Markers - various colours

Black cardstock
Aqua mirror board
8x8 card blank
paper flowers
flat backed gems


I stamped the Script stamp over a piece of white linen cardstock (that I had trimmed to 1/2cm smaller than an 8x8 cardblank) using Versamark embossing ink, I then tapped some clear embossing powder over and heated with a heat gun to create a raised effect which will then work as a relief when inking over with distress inks, I chose 2 shades of both green and blue inks and blended them over the heat embossed background using foam blending tools. 

I then stamped the Clover stamp along the bottom edge of the card using Versafine ink which I gave a quick blast with the heat gun to speed up the drying time


Next I stamped Peggy onto colouring cardstock (a smooth type perfect for alcohol markers) and I coloured her using copic markers using 3 sets of colours which blend well together and nicely match the tones in the background I had created. I then fussy cut her out using a pair of small but sharp scissors. I then fixed her to the background using tacky glue. I also stamped and coloured the Dog and fixed him to the background too. I matted this picture with black cardstock and fixed to the card front using all purpose glue. 


I then die cut some flourishes using 3 metal dies and some cardstock I chose the same black from earlier and some aqua mirror board. Next I layered up some paper flowers and some foliage. I stamped, coloured and cut out some of the Star Flowers from the Floral stamp I shaped them using an embossing ball tool and layered them in with the paper flowers. All the flowers are attached using my hot glue gun. I finished off the card with some flat back gems for a touch of Bling.

For the sentiment I used the large Dream Wordage stamp with just the word Beautiful from the Wordage Beautiful Things stamp, which i stamped using black ink. I inked the edges and matted using black card and attached to the cardfront at a jaunty angle using foam tape.

I actually really like this card as I stuck to my favourite style of cardmaking but used colours that are usually very alien to me but I think really do work well together for this project.

Thanks You so much for visiting my Post today do come back soon to see more Projects from the Bee Crafty Design Team
