Jane DT - Doodle Sunflower Notebook Cover


Today on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog I am sharing a notebook cover that I have made for one of my son's teacher gifts as it is heading towards the end of the school year...

I started by cutting two pieces of mount board with a journal die that I have and coated it with white gesso.  Then I used crackle paste through the Mandala 5 inkable and the circles d'inkable and left it to dry naturally...

As this is a gift and an item that will be handled I wanted to use colouring mediums that are permanent and not water reactive, so I painted on acrylic paints but added water to make sure the crackles were still visible...

To help the pattern to stand back out I got my inktense pencils in orange and grey and added shading which I activated with my water brush.  If the colour got a bit too intense I added extra water and blotted with a paper towel...

Once I was happy with the shading I used the Script XL stamp to add extra detail and I used watering can archival ink to match the pencil colour and also because it is a permanent ink...

The Doodle Art Sunflowers were stamped out in both sizes.  Once cut out I coloured them using permanent markers and then added glossy accents over the top, this was to create a nice finish but also as another layer of protection...

When creating journals or notebooks I love to add long dangly charms to the spine, so I started by stamping the sunflowers onto white shrink plastic before cutting them out, adding a hole to each and then shrinking them with my heat tool.  After that I used alcohol markers to add some colours and coated with glossy accents...

Using my stash of beads and jewellery findings I put a selection of beads in matching colours onto head and eye pins to create my dangly charms...

The project was finished off by adding eyelets and ribbon for a closure and the elastic to put my pre bought notebooks inside and also to add my dangly charms to...

To create this project these are the products I used:

* Inkables - Mandala 5
* D'inkables - Circles
* Art Stamps - Doodle Art Sunflowers (regular and XL)
* Backdrop Stamps - Script XL
* Archival Inkpads
* White Gesso
* Glossy Accents
* Shrink Plastic

Thank you for looking and happy crafting!

Karen DT - O'Christmas Tree

Morning xx

I've been getting a bit festive with my Doodle Art sets, on my weekly Bee Crafty blog post.... mad you say... but I can't put these stamp sets down lol

Products used:
Doodle Art sets: all of them!! 🤣
Distress Oxides
Kuretake clean colour pens
Sparkle pens
Gelli Plate
Patterned papers

Whilst I have made my backgrounds on my Gelli Plate, you can achieve a similar effect by applying Distress Oxides to an acrylic block. Spritz with water and apply to card blank. Then stamp your desired images within the inked panel.

All my images were stamped in Black Onyx Versafine as I like the bold, contemporary feel to this style.

I coloured in some aspects of the images, either with kuretake clean colour pens or sparkle pens, but you can use whatever you have in your crafty stash 

To create the 3d snowflakes I stamped on to patterned paper, cut them out and layered them up.

Well there today's selection of makes. Until next time.

Caz Harwood - Doodle flower tag!

Sharing a fun, vibrant summery tag with you all today....... 


Ranger manilla tags #8 

Acrylic paints (pink and neon yellow)

Doodle girl regular stamp set

Doodle bird regular stamp set 

D'Inkable Drops stencil

Wordage ticker tape 1 stamp set

Black archival ink
Pink stazon 
Grey Archival ink


Firstly start by sponging the yellow paint onto your tag, covering all the surface. Then with a palette knife scrape some of the pink paint over the surface at random. 

When the paint is dry, take some of the decorative element stamps from both the doodle girl and doodle bird set, and stamp a background design. 

Then using the drops D'Inkable, sponge some white gesso through down the centre of the tag. 

Stamp the flower head from the doodle bird set, colour and cut. Stamp out a doodle border for the stem. (Looks Quirky & fun) 
Then glue the heads on top and coat in glossy accents. 
Add your ticker tape sentiment! 
You're all done.

Lorre-Anne DT - Memories

Hi everyone, I'm sharing my latest DT project on the Bee Crafty blog today and I'm using one of my favourite sentiments on this card.

What to do
  • Cut some black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and white slightly smaller again.
  • Put some of each Oxide on to a blending mat and spritz with water.  Drag the white card through it and dry with a heat tool.
  • Randomly stamp the Dandelion head using Chipped Sapphire around the card, and blend some Picked Raspberry through the Texture Disc.
  • Stamp the Dandelion and Texture stamp using Versafine ink, and blend some Black Soot Oxide around the edges before matting to the black card.  Glue to the card blank.
  • Stamp the sentiment using Versafine, cut out and blend some Black Soot around the edges.  Mat to black card and affix with foam pads.
  • Finish by adding some Star Dust Stickles to the Dandelion heads.
I'll be back next week with another project, until then Happy Crafting everyone!

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x
