Jane DT - Hand Drawn Leaves Samples


Today on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog I am sharing my samples that were made for last weeks HOCHANDA shows...

The MDF art board had crackle paste added for the background then spray inks for the colour.  The leaves and butterflies were stamped and cut out and the sentiment stamped onto acetate to allow the background to show through.

A circle die was used to cut out the middle of the card.  The leaves and butterflies were stamped, cut out and coloured using watercolour markers.

The leaves were stamped with glue and then gilding flakes added.  The larger leaves were stamped directly onto the MDF tag board, the smaller ones cut out and layered using glue gel for extra dimension.

The card was made using the matching Inkables with the maple leaf stamps and distress inks.

The tall art board was coloured with Dylusions paints then the leaves stamped with black ink and stencilling added on top with black paint.

Here are the products used...

* Beautanicals - Maple Leaf Set
* Beautanicals - Oak Leaf Set
* Art Stamps - Large Butterfly
* Art Stamps - Dragonfly and Butterfly
* Wordage - Everyday Sentiments 1 XL
* D'Inkables - Regular Dots, Honeycomb
* Dylusions Paints

Happy crafting,

Emily DT - Seasonal Trees

Hi everyone, yet another week has flown past and it is my turn for some Bee Crafty inspiration.

For my cards this week I have used the tree stamp from the recent Hochanda shows to make a set of three very simple and quick cards.

Here are the cards I have made...

I started by stamping the tree on three pieces of card, then I used Brusho paints spritzed with water to add 'leaves'.

Each one was then finished with a sentiment.

These cards are so simple but so effective and I love making them.

I hope you like them!

Lorre-Anne DT - Value of a moment

Hi everyone, it's Monday which means I'm up on the Bee Crafty blog to share another one of my DT makes with you all.

What to do
  • Cut grey card slightly smaller than the card blank, and white card slightly smaller again.
  • Take the white card and directly apply Evergreen Bough Oxide to the bottom then blend it over the card using a wet baby wipe.  Apply some Broken china directly to the top of the card, and blend this using a wet wipe too.  Dry using a heat tool or leave to dry naturally.
  • Stamp the flower twice using Versafine ink.
  • Finish by adding a stamped sentiment.

That's it for this week... be back soon to share another one of my makes with you all.  

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Jane DT - Life Journal


Today on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog I am sharing a project that I created for myself to use!  At the moment there is a real love in the crafting world for journals and notebooks so this week I decided to use my Bee Crafty products to decorate myself a wrap journal...

I started by prepping the board with white gesso and then used my brayer to add layers of Dylusions paints (Vibrant Turquoise, Fresh Lime and Pure Sunshine), leaving some areas of the white still showing through.  Next background stamping was added using archival inks and a mixture of texture and backdrop stamps...

Using the distressed harlequin d'inkable some crackle paste was added and I left this white to create some contrast to the quite busy background.  To create the focal pieces I chose some of the stamps that are elements that I really like or represent the idea of a journal (e.g. the pen nibs).  These were all cut out and then coloured with sparkle pens to match the background colours.  To make them more sturdy I added glossy accents and then left them to dry overnight...

Once these had all fully dried they were added to the cover using glue gel.  The dragonfly and larger cog were then stamped onto shrink plastic to create some charms.  These were added to some beads and jewellery findings to create the dangly accents that could then be joined to the top of the binding elastic...

The closure was created with some more elastic and then the notebooks added to create my final journal...

Here are the products that I used...

* Backdrops Border Stamps - Texture Borders
* Backdrop Stamps - Multi Mini Distressed Diamonds; Franking Marks
* Art Stamps - Dragonfly; Cogs Set; Nibs
* Wordage - Life Words 1
* D'Inkables - Distressed Harlequin
* Dylusions Paints

I will certainly be making more mini books as they are really good fun to decorate.  Thank you for looking and happy crafting,

Jane xx

Emily DT - Throwback Inspiration

Hi everyone,

I have had literally no time to craft this week so I have looked through my early DT cards to provide some inspiration.

I have decided to share a card which I made using some of the Beautanical stamps.

Here is the card I have decided to share...

This card was made with a Brusho background then used the smaller and larger Ground Elder stamps.

The card was finished with a sentiment stamped onto white card and mounted it on black to make it stand out from the background.

I hope you like it!

Karen DT - See clearly in the dark

Hello crafters xx

I'm on the Buzzy Goings On At Bee Crafty Blog today with a sample using one of my favourite stamps. .the Winter Wolf 😘

Also used:
Silhouette Tree with Birds
Distress Oxides 

I put some masking tape across my card where I wanted the horizon to be
I blended a variety of Distress Oxides in a sunburst effect then using a water brush I bleached rays of light randomly between the colours
I splattered droplets of water over the Oxides and mopped it up with kitchen towel
Having removed the masking tape I blended the Oxides across the card
The gorgeous Wolf was stamped in Versafine, together with the sentiment  
I also stamped the Tree with Birds randomly around the inked card, with Versafine 
I attached some snowfall acetate onto my card, adhering at the back with red tape, before adhering this the card blank

I hope you enjoyed today's post and love this gorgeous Wolf as much as I do 

I'll be back again soon with another Bee Crafty make 
Crafty hugs xx

Lorre-Anne DT - Brushos Butterfly

Hi bloggers, for this weeks Bee Crafty DT project I've got my Brushos out again... if you've never had a play with Brushos they are coloured powders that are activated by the addition of water.  I love sprinkling the powders on to card, spritzing with water and watching them burst into colour.  

What to do
  • Cut some black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and some white card slightly smaller again.
  • Take the white card and sprinkle some of the Brushos over it, spritz with water and dry using a heat tool.
  • Stamp the butterfly using Onyx Black Versafine ink in the centre of the card.
  • Stamp the greetings using Versafine ink
  • Mat the white card on to the black card, and glue both to the card blank.
  • Finish by adding some Stickles to the wings of the butterfly.
That's it for this week, I hope you liked my card, and I will be back soon to share another with you.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Jane DT - Wolf Tag


I hope it is lovely where you are at the moment! The weather here is a total contrast to the snowy project I am sharing on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog today...

I wanted to create a really textured background to my tag to give it a snowy, icy feel, but then needed to have the wolf be able to stand out so I decided to use acetate. 

I started the background by preparing the MDF tag with gesso then painted it with crackle paint.  Once this had dried I added blue spray inks then used the d'inkable snowflakes with silver paint.  This was followed by adding silver sparkle paste through the snowflake 2 inkable across the left side of the tag. 

I then cut a piece of heat resistant acetate that would make a dome around the front of the tag then stamped the wolf using clear versamark ink.  This was then heat embossed using silver powder.  At this point the wolf was quite hard to see properly when against the background so I stippled white gesso onto the back of the acetate so that the wolf stood out...

The words and moon from the same set were stamped and heat embossed in silver powder and mounted onto silver card before adding to the tag.  The final touch was to add some ribbon...

The products I used were:

* MDF Tag
* Art Stamps - Scenery Animals Set Wolf
* D'inkable - Snowflakes
* Inkable - Snowflake 2

Thank you for looking and happy crafting!

Jane xx
