NEW Stamp: Value of a Moment

This weeks stamp release is a NEW addition to the WORDage range a lovely phrase in both a large and small design.

The Large stamps depending on design are excellent feature stamps on cards and great on scrapbook layouts, larger art journals and altered chipboard products.

The Small stamps depending on designs are perfect for putting as an additional stamp on cards with a larger focal image or on smaller altered projects such as small maze/mini books or small journals.

and our Design Team have come up with some cracking designs using both sizes

Sue has used both the Winter Wonderland Stamp launched last week and the NEW WORDage to creating this lovely card

Tracey has used the Large WORDage as a feature stamp on this card.
This is a5x5 deckled edge Ivory card blank, First Edition Desert Bloom Glittered card mounted onto black card, Black satin & triple tie bow, Sentiment stamped with Versamark and Black Sparkle Embossing powder onto First Edition Desert Bloom card, then mounted onto black card. Finished with black gems.

Pauline has used the always lovely Claus and small WORDage on this stunning creation
Kraft card blank, with cream card distressed with 'Old paper', stamped in 'Vintage Photo' and clear embossed, and cut out using spellbinder die's, kraft card is distressed with 'Vintage Photo' and a 'Tonic' punch is used for the verticle border, holly is cut from kraft using a Marianne die, and coloured with 'Peeled paint, and red stickles.

and Suze Jo has made this stunner using the Winter Wonderland Trees and the small phrase and a gorgeous large Organza Bow
I think you'll agree these are all fab and equally stunning and we are very lucky to have such a versatile and creative team.

Winter Wonderland by Pauline

Today we have a gorgeous card by Pauline, using the brilliant NEW Winter Wonderland Set (2 Stamps for only £3.99)

Now I have to say this card is not instantly recognisable as one of Paulines, as it is VERY non-grungy, with clean lines (and auline is usually up to her elbows in ink) and is quite delicate but as I'm sure you'll agree like all Pauline's creations it is STUNNING!

This fantastic card is easel style with some funky little extra folds

The borders are Bazzil bling, edged with a Tonic punch, and a thin piece of snowflake paper added. the Winter Wonderland stamps have been stamped in Broken China, and clear embossed, snowflakes punched out of Bazzil bling, with diamond stickles added.

Here is picture from the side as well which will help to see the construction

This is such as stunning card and the stamps are beautifully shown off

You can see the full yuletide range online

Hope you are all having a great week

All Hallows Matching Card and ATC by Pauline

Pauline has been busy making spooky fabulousness using the All Hallows Stamps, a gorgeous ATC and a superb matching 6x6 card.

Pauline has used some yummy Tim Holtz Distress Inks for the background, the All Hallows Owl and she has very cleverly restamped a section of the tree to make it that tall. The bat has been stamped on shrink plastic and shrunk down so the size really compliments the rest of the card

Here is  the matching ATC and I don't know about you but I'd love to recieve these in swap

The All Hallows stamps like all Bee Crafty Polymer Stamps have a bundle deal available 3 of the £3.99 stamps for only £10 just add the bundle deal to your basket with a note saying which stamps you would like

More Yuletide Lovelies

Afternoon All,

The DT have been making some more luscious lovelies using this weeks release,

How about this gorgeous card by Sue

using the fab Claus stamp and the 'twas the night before Christmas stamp

and Tracey has shown here how great the 'twas stamp is as a little tag

with a little faux stitching around the edge for effect GORGEOUS

Remember you can see all the Yuletide online or instore

For ultra smooth images we advise priming your stamp before it's first use by inking up and stamping a few times with an ink such as archival, but nearly any dye based ink will do :)

We have a NEW Christmassy paper range arriving very soon so keep your eyes peeled

Have a great weekend everyone

The NEW Design Team

Good Evening Crafters,

Our NEW Design Team are picked, poised and raring to go, so I thought I'd intorducs you to them all, so in no special order we have

Sue Hickey
I'm Sue been crafting for a long time now really enjoy it, I mostly make cards and love using my cameo or my dies. I am married with two grown up lads and five grandchildren work part time and love that as well xx

Pauline Butcher
I've been crafting in some way or another since I was a young girl, My Granny was a seamstress, so I was taught to sew, how to knit and crochet years ago. I loved Art at school, drawing and painting was my passion, and wanted to go to Art College, but my parents wanted me to have a proper job, lol. I was always playing with some sort of craft, flower arranging, making jewellery, playing with metal, pottery and more. For 10 years I was into sugar craft, making cakes and decorating them with sugar paste flowers. Card making came into my life about 11 years ago, and has stayed, I love trying to include my other crafty skills, when playing with paper and card, I'm totally addicted, lol.

Suze Jo Murphy
Hi, I'm SuzeJo (usually known as Suzee or Suze), I'm a Qualified Florist and Community Craft Demonstrator. I have three passions in life... Nature... Music ... and Crafting. I adore rubber stamping, distress inks, alcohol inks, UTEE, the Meltpot etc etc, in fact anything that gets my hands grubby and inky suits me just fine and you can usually find me in my 'crafty cave' beavering away at some project with Bob Dylan or Led Zeppelin playing in the background which gets louder when I'm Steampunking something ! :o))

Tracie Boobaloo
I Have always had a interest in all things crafty and from a young age was always making things with paper, or painting. I then got into scrap booking & card making and as they say that is where it all started. I had a couple of years where due to various other life things going on I didn't do any crafting, but I got back into it and the rest is history. I am a huge fan of always trying something different, I love stamps and colouring but if I can try and add a different technique to a project then it makes me happy.

We are so looking forward to what these talented ladies come up with and I know you'll love their projects too.
