Charlee DT - African Scene

Morning crafters. For this weeks blog I'm sharing this African scene. Hope you enjoy

What you'll need:

Step 1:

Cut down your card to the size you want. Taking the fossilised amber blend across the middle of the card. Then above and below blend the carved pumpkin and then go round the edges with the fired brick. Create some hills in the background using carved pumpkin.

Step 2:

Taking the silhouette tree ink up in a black ink and stamp in the position you want. Then stamp the elephant ( or what other animal you wish ) and stamp also in black ink.

Step 3:

Once happy with how your African scene looks, stamp your sentiment. Then matt and layer how you wish and adhere to a card blank.

That's all from me for this week. Hope you enjoy and are inspired.

Lorre-Anne DT - Every Accomplishment

Hi everyone, it's Monday and time for me to share another one of my Bee Crafty DT projects with you all... and today I am using the awesome guitar as my focal point.  I wanted quite a bright card so went for orange and purple as my main colours.

What to do -
  • Cut mat and layers using black and white card.  Mat the largest white layer on to the largest black layer, and glue to the card blank.
  • Take the Distress Inks and dab some on a blending mat, spritz with water and drag the other white square of card through it.  Dry with a heat tool and repeat until you get the look you want.
  • Use the dots Dinkable to blend some Wilted Violet through at random places, and stamp the squiggly lines using Wilted Violet too.
  • Use Versafine ink to stamp the guitar in the centre of the card.  Mat this piece of card onto the remaining black layer, and attach to the card using foam pads.
  • On spare white card stamp the sentiment using Versafine ink, and chop it into separate words before matting on to black card.  Attach using foam pads.
That's my project complete for this week, be back next week with another.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Jane DT - The Key to Flying!


Last week Bev shared some gorgeous new Da Vinci stamps on HOCHANDA and today on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog I am sharing one of the MDF samples that I made for the shows...

I started by preparing the circle art board with gesso then after sticking the MDF cogs and bolts where I wanted them added sand texture paste and crackle paste to the surface.  Once those had thoroughly dried the whole piece was painted with gold paint.  Next the rust effect was created using acrylic paints in yellow, orange and brown tones plus some green and blue for the patina effect...

Gold gilding wax was also added lightly over the top to bring out some of the texture and shapes.  The keys were prepared in the same way as the main board and then the Da Vinci wings stamped and cut out before adding a light wash of watercolour...

I stamped the Da Vinci portrait onto tissue using a permanent ink and used matte medium to attach it to the board, the aim was for it to look a bit like a faded fresco!  Finally the sentiment was stamped and colour added to match the wings...

Here are the products used...

* MDF Circle Art Board
* MDF Cogs
* MDF Keys
* MDF Accessories
* Art Stamps - Da Vinci Leonardo
* Art Stamps - Da Vinci Wings
* Wordage - Art is Never Finished

Thank you for looking and happy crafting!

Charlee DT - DaVinci Samples

Morning crafters. For this weeks blog I'm sharing the samples I made for yesterday's DaVinci shows.

For this sample I used a gold sparkle pen and did a wash all over the background. I then used the perspective circles inkable and blended through with vintage photo distress ink. On a smaller piece of card I stamped Science of beauty  in versamark. I then took a dry brush and used some mica pigments over it. To finish the card I stamped DaVinci signature in versafine oynx black.

I blended vintage photo distress ink all over the card for the centre piece and then splattered some water. Once dry I stamped the Leonardo stamp with versamark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. On some kraft card I heat embossed laurel boarder all round the edge with clear embossing powder. I then used some guilding wax over the top. I took the idea stamp from the creativity words large set and stamped all over also in vintage photo distress ink. I then lightly blended the same colour over the top.

For this one I took all the blue tones and squeezed lemonade distress oxides. I put the different colours on my blended matt spritzed with water and picked it up onto som glossy card. I kept repeating untill I was happy with how the background looked. Once dry I went over the card with some distress micro glaze. I then stamped Leonardo and the Artistry word with nuvo hybrid ink.

I used the Mondrian 1 inkable and blended through with twisted citron, peacock feathers and salty ocean oxides. I then stamped the DaVinci Wings in versafine grey ink all over the bakground. I then took a selection of words from the creativy set and stamped them in the spaces.

That's all from me for this week. Hope you get lots of inspiration. Don't forget to share you're Bee Crafty makes on the Bee Crafty Stamps group on facebook which you can find HERE

Lorre-Anne DT - Da Vinci samples

Hi everyone, for my Bee Crafty blog post this week I'm sharing the samples I have made for Bev's shows on Hochanda today... tune in at 10am and 2pm to see all the gorgeous Bee Crafty goodies available.

I've used one of the MDF tags and decorated it using Pentart products (gesso, structure paste, cracking paste primer, cracking paste, patina effect paints).  I stamped the image on to tissue paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then adhered it to the tag using Matt Mod Podge.  The cogs and keys are also available from Bee Crafty.  I've also used the Hearts Dinkable .

I created the background using Mermaid Lagoon & Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxides, and Dinkables Regular Dots & Sunset.  The stamps I have used from the Da Vinci range are the Vitruvian Man,Science of beauty, and Art is never finished.

I created a very simple background by stamping the Wings in various colours of Distress Oxide (Candied AppleSalty OceanSqueezed LemonadeSpiced Marmalade, & Twisted Citron).  I stamped Leonardo and the sentiment using Onyx Black Versafine ink.

I created a background using Brilliant Red Brusho, then blended some Black Soot Distress Ink through the Stars Dinkable.  I stamped Leonardo and the sentiment using Onyx Black Versafine ink.

I created the background using Distress Oxides (Faded JeansSalty OceanPeacock Feathers, Broken China), and the Circles Dinkable.  I then stamped the Science of Beauty and Life & Rain using Onyx Black Versafine ink.  I added some highlights to the circles using a white gel pen.

I created the background using Distress Oxides (Wild HoneyFrayed BurlapGathered Twigs), then spritzed water through the Vitruvian Man stencil.  I blended some Frayed Burlap through the Distressed Harlequin Dinkable, and stamped both the image and sentiment using Gathered Twigs.

I created this entire card using Vintage Photo Distress Oxide.  Materials used include Vitruvian Man Inkable, Circle Lattice DinkableSforza HorseScience of Beauty and Art is never finished stamps.

I'll be back next Monday to share another project with you all.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Paula DT - Life isn't about waiting..

Shopping List
Inspired by Banksy ~ Caught in the Rain
Inkables Template ~ Mandala 4
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Oxide ~ Twisted Citron
Versafine ~ Onyx Black

I haven't made anything for about 6 weeks but last night (Saturday 12th). I popped into my craft room and picked up a card blank, used one of the brand new Mandala stencils with the ink colour that has been sitting on my desk for weeks and then I stamped the image and the large sentiment. It took me 5 minutes but I cant imagine it will take anyone else more than 10 minutes. So, if you're looking for a quick card then give it a go.

Jane DT - Butterfly Wreath Card


It is my turn to share a project on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog today and I needed to make a thank you card so decided to use the inspiration from one of my recent design team samples ...

Often with the butterfly stamps I stamp them first then colour with pens, but I wanted to use a different technique this time so started by creating a piece of coloured card.  I used distress oxide inks, building them up one layer at a time (seedless preserves, peacock feathers and worn lipstick) then added some splatters using watered down gold paint...

Next I stamped the large butterfly and two of the smaller butterflies 3 times each as well as the XL sentiment.  I used black Versafine ink and heat embossed with clear powder over the top.  Then I cut them all out and die cut the sentiment, layering onto some black card...

I then used a circle die to cut an aperture into the centre of a 7" square card and added some seedless preserves oxide ink around the edges with a blending brush.  To make it look more distressed I splashed some droplets of water onto the ink then dabbed them off with kitchen roll...

Finally I added all the pieces, sticking the sentiment into the centre so that it would be inside the card when opened and then added the butterflies using glue gel...

Emily DT - Create Art

Hi everyone,

It is my turn once again for some crafty inspiration. I have made a super quick and easy card this week, using one of the recent border stamps.

Here is the card I have made...

I used the one border stamp which is triangles. I used blue and grey Distress inks to randomly stamp some lines across the card, matching them up in places.

I then used some of the Artistry words to add the sentiment.

This card is really quick to make and can be done in lots of colours to suit any theme. 

I hope you like it!

Keep an eye on the Bee Crafty Facebook page for upcoming swaps to take part in.

See you soon!
