Clare DT - Greatness

Happy Sunday Bloggers, it's my turn to blog for Bee Crafty. Today i am sharing with you a little something from the Inspired by Banksy collection. A couple of weeks ago I had a little play with some shaving foam to make some backgrounds.


To make this card i used:

Inspired by Banksy - Greatness words

Dylusion inks

Backdrop stamp - Crackle paint

Wink of stella pen

Shaving foam





The background was prepared in advance of stamping so that it was dry enough to enable stamping and heat embossing. I am hoping to do a step by step tutorial for this soon. I stamped the greatness words onto my background and heat embossed with clear powder.

I added some shimmer to my swirls using a wink of stella brush. The backdrop stamp was stamped onto some pink card to add another layer.



Thank you for popping over for a look today. If you have liked looking at my blog today remember to add yourself as a follower. I love to hear your comments so feel free to drop one below.


Happy Crafting,

DT Kerrie - Fashionettes Tracy

Hiya and welcome to my Friday post for Bee Crafty

I was very excited to receive more Fashionette's this week so of course I had to break them open straight away and get making with one of them 'Tracy' she is so so gorgeous

The first thing I did was chose my papers, as a hoarder I always have a few boxes of off-cuts that I keep to use later, I make myself a challenge each week to make a few cards using mainly off-cuts to use them up. I chose this lovely mint coloured piece with bird cages & vines on and that became my theme - I colour matched with a light brown piece with dark brown vines on 

I coloured 'Tracy' using Copic Markers

Hair: E37, E35, E31, E29
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
Blush R20
Lips: E04, R20
Glasses: BG49, BG45
Dress: BG32, BG11
Tshirt & Socks: C2, C0
Belt: W7, W5

I used some dies to create the swirly vine, bird cage and birds - The sentiment is Happy Birthday/With Love

Marleen DT - Scull

Hi guys.. 

Back with another post for 

For my LO (LayOut) today I've used the 
"Scull" stamp. You can find it in the STORE with all the other goodies.

Here is what I've made:

For this LO I started by stamping out my scull 4 times. I've stamped with versamark and covered with black embossing powder. Once powder was melted and cooled I added the strips of patterned card stock. My title is chipboard covered with black embossing powder. The rest of the LO is finished with faux stitches a couple of pearls andmy words made with my dymo.

The photo is of my son (on the right) and my nephew (on the left). We live in 2 different countries so the boys dont get to see each other enough but when they do get together its fun, games and laughter all the way. They really are brothers from different mothers :-)

And that is all from me for today.
Many thanks for stopping by and for any comments left behind.

Clare DT - Banksy inspired, Balloon Girl

Happy sunny Sunday morning. It's me again with my Weekly Bee Crafty spot. This week I'm back with some more Banksy.




For this card i used:

Banksy inspired balloon girl

Backdrop stamp - Crackle paint

Backdrop stamp - Bubble wrap positive

Wordage - Dreams come true


Inkables template - metalwork alpha

Distress inks

A wink of stella clear pen

Liquid pearls



I started off by covering the card in salt and carefully drawing a swirl in the salt, i also brushed away some of the salt and used some rock salt in random areas. After that i sprinkled the brushos and spritzed with water.


Once dry I removed the salt and stenciled in weathered wood the metalwork alpha mask. I stamped the balloon girl over the swirl and then the backdrop stamps in various different areas.


I stamped the sentiment in the corner and added some liquid pearls to the swirl. I added a little detail to the balloon girl using a wink of stella pen.

Kerrie DT - Tin Man - Tag

Hiya and welcome to my Friday post for Bee Crafty 

This week I have made a Tag using a few of my fave stamps 

Bee Crafty stamps I have used are..

They are all available from the Bee Crafty STORE along with lots of other yummy products

First I stamped the Tin Man using grey ink into the centre of the tag, I then stamped again onto a piece of wide tape from my masking roll, which I cut around the Tin Man shape to make a mask. I was the Tin Man un-coloured for later.

Next I stamped the Backdrops Border - Clover using clear embossing ink accross the bottom of the tag just touching the Tin Man's feet. I used silver embossing powder tipped over the front, tapped of excess powder and heated with a heat gun

Then I stamped the 'Da Vinci - Script' stamp over the whole tag using clear embossing ink and then used 'clear' embossing powder and heat embossed - the tag is very textured now with raised areas. I inked over using 'Weathered Wood' and 'Pumice Stone' Distress Inks over the tag.

I used the leaf stamps from the 'BEAUtanicals - Maple Solid' to randomly stamp in the corners and down the sides of the tag

I added some random stamping of the 'BEAUtanicals - Cow Parsley' stamp in between the leaves. I took the masking tape off the tag to reveal the un-coloured Tin Man

I stamped the 'WORDage - Being Happy' off the edge of the tag so only the 'look beyond the Imperfections' line was on the tag. I heat embossed using silver embossing powder.

I ran the clear ink pad over the tag edges and dipped into black embossing powder and heated with an embossing gun

I coloured the Tin Man using Alcohol Markers 

Thank you for visiting today and I hope you come back soon to see more gorgeous makes by the Design Team xx

Marleen DT - Tag

Hi everyone

Darn it seems forever since I blogged last.. Well I had a little break for easter, went home to Denmark to spend some time with my family. Had a lovely time but really missed my crafting lol..
Oh and I do hope you all had a lovely easter :-)

Anyway for my post for Bee Crafty  for this week Ive made a little tag.
This week Ive used the following stamps:
You can find them in the STORE along with all the other amazing goodies.

Here is what Ive made:
For this tag I started by stamping the Happy Halloween stamp all around the edges of the tag, using staz-on black ink.. I only used some of the stamp to create a bit of faint border.

I then smothered the tag in green distress ink and stamped the Maidenhair. 
stamp twice and covered it with clear embossing powder.
Once powder was cooled I added a layer of browns distress ink.

The Glad I did it stamp I stamped on a piece of card stock but cut each word out and added more distress ink before adding each word to the tag.

I finished with 2 mini paper clip and a bit of ribbon and voila..

I hope you like what I've made. 
Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Clare DT - Fashionettes Rosie

Good day to you all. I'm here today with my Bee Crafty DT hat on to share with you the one of the newest fashionettes 'Rosie'. I dont often produce coloured images and being on holiday i had some extra time to play. I have also been busy in the sense of creating a new craft room. Hubby has decided that we need our dining room back so he has been busy in the cellar creating a room for me to craft. Im so excited, i have been taking photos so will post once its completed and i have moved in.


For this card I have used:

Fashionettes Rosie

Blooming beautiful sentiment from flower girl Abi

Inkables template - Alternative circles

Distress inks



This one was just a simple stamp and colour with pencils. I distressed the edge of the card with some fine sandpaper and then distress ink. I added some circles with distress inks through the inkables alternative circles and with a white pen added some doodling to the bubbles.



Thats it from me today. I am donning old clothes and a paint brush to give my new room a lick of paint so no crafting for me today but it will be worth it.


Happy crafting all.

DT Kerrie - Planner 'Dreams' - Vera

Hiya and welcome to my weekly post for Bee Crafty - I have moved to the Saturday Spot just for this week

I have mixed up my 2 favourite things for my project this week, 'Colouring and Planner's' and made a page marker for my A5 Planner using one of the Fashionette's 'Vera' I love this cute girly stamp

I stamped her onto super smooth cardstock and coloured her using my alcohol markers to match the pretty cardstock papers I chose to make the page marker with

I stamped the 'Dreams Come True' WORDage stamp using brown ink, inked the edges using 'Dusty Concord' distress ink and matted onto purple mirror board

The page marker needed to be completely flat to fit in my planner so I cut the folower embellishments from another piece of cardstock paper in the same pad as the other papers I used, I free hand drew the stems and leaves. I inked all the papers using distress inks 'Dusty Concord' and 'Pumice Stone' - I fussy cut the stamped image then fixed all the pieces together

I marked and punched the ring binder holes and put the page marker into my Planner - I really like how it turned out

Thank you so much for visiting today - I will be back Friday but please do visit again on Sunday and Wednesday where there will be more gorgeous projects from the talented Design Team

Clare DT - Believe

Good morning bloggers. I'm fresh back from my holiday in cornwall and back in just in time to write up my weekly blog for Bee Crafty. When i recently went to the NEC i picked up some of Bee Crafty's newest additions from the Alisa Kay Designs and thought i would have a little play.





For this card i used

Yueltide - Believe stamp

Banksy inspired - Hope

Alisa Kay designs - Astral asparagus

Alisa Kay designs - Meteroid Mushrooms

Backdrop Borders - Dandies

Distress inks

A wink of stella - clear pen

Distress pens

Liquid pearls





I started off by stamping the mushroom and asparagus and masking them off with masking fluid. After that a created the moon lit background using distress inks.


I stamped on the 'Believe' stamp, 'dandies' and 'Hope' using black ink. I removed the masking fluid and painted in the mushrooms and asparagus using distress inks and i highlighted them using my picket fence distress pen. To complete them i added some liquid pearls.

I used my seedless preserve distress pen to highlight around the images to make them pop and finally with my wink of stella pen i added some shimmer to Hope and the Believe sentiment.

Kerrie DT - I'm Glad I Did It - TinMan

Hiya and welcome to my Friday DT post for Bee Crafty

I have made a TinMan from the Wizard of Oz Collection card using Distress Inks and a mask

To create the background I tapped some ink from Stormy Sky distress inkpad onto a craft sheet then using water and a paint brush I used the ink as a watercolour across a piece of watercolour card.

Using an inking tool and Weathered Wood distress inkpad Ive inked the edges and in from the corners, more on the top left. Using a mask I sprayed water through it, this dilutes the ink just where the water hits through the mask. I added some salt which then moves the watery ink and creates a bit more texture look. I heated the card using a heat tool and then brushed the salt away. I cleaned the mask and then inked through it randomly using Weathered wood.

I stamped the TinMan using a grey inkpad, then coloured him using Weathered Wood distress ink and a waterbrush. Once dry I went over the shaded areas again with Weathered Wood to darken the colour.

Ive added embossed details in the Corners using clear embossing ink with white embossing ink and some more lush Bee Crafty stamps.... Yuletide - Holly Swirl, Beautanicals - Branches and Cow Parsley

I stamped WORDage - Glad I Did It using a grey inkpad in the area that the TinMan is looking so it looks like he is thinking the phrase

I hope you like my project today and that you will visit again soon to see some more gorgeous makes by the Bee Crafty Design Team
