Clare DT - Greatness Girl and distressed stars

It's the weekend, which allows most of us to kick back and allow ourselves some crafty time. Being off school this week I have been fortunate enough to have lots of creative time.

I'm here today with my Bee Crafty blog for this week. This weeks blog has a bit of an American theme.



For this card I used:

Banksy inspired Greatness Girl

Backdrop borders Distressed stars

Dylusions ink London blue

Dylusions Paint Post box red

Embossing powder

To make this card I brushed some post box red paint to make the stripes. Once dried I sprayed the top of the card with London blue ink and let it run down the middle of the card.

After it had dried completely i was able to stamp the image and the border then heat emboss with clear embossing powder.


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. Got lots of ideas rumbling around in the old grey matter but I'm back to work on Monday so i guess i'd better jot them down for a later date or I may just sneek a final few crafty hours before monday.


Crafty hugs,

Emily DT - Being Happy!

Hello! This is my first post for the Bee Crafty design team and I have created a card using the BEAUtanicals branches and wordage Being Happy large stamps.

Here is the card

I started with a square of card which I coloured round the edge with orange alcohol ink. I applied it using a piece of felt and my ink applicator. I then went round the edge adding BEAUtanicals branches in two different sizes. I used ripe persimmon and spiced marmelade distress inks.

The circle I coloured using ink dusters and distress inks. I used ripe persimmon and spiced marmelade again, and also added in a little barn door.
Then I stamped my wordage stamp using a brown pigment ink and a black pigment ink, slightly offsetting them.

I mounted the circle using foam pads to give it some height, then mounted the whole thing onto black card.

Here is the finished card...

I hope you like my first ever card for Bee Crafty!

See you next week

Marleen DT - PARKing

Howdy ya all...

Wednesday.. Bee Crafty.. Exciting... :-)
A few weeks ago I told ya all that I had gotten new stamps delivered to play with. One of these stamps was the one Ive used for today.. Now in fairness, the 2 cards Im sharing today was made the same day I got the stamps but I just didnt get the chance to share until today lol

Anyway with no further ado... Using the samp called "PARKing" (from the Banksy collection) from the Bee Crafty STORE....

Ta'daaaaaa lol

This one is made with lots of bright distress inks and a couple of masks on top of a mat, matted again on a bright yellow mat and finished with my stamp.

 This one is much more muted as its walnut stain and mahogany distress inks on top of craft card.
I used a mask strait on to the card and stamped on top again.

So as you can see 2 very different cards using 2 different tecniques yet using the same stamp.
And yes I did send the brown one to a friend and yes we did meet up in the park lol

Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Clare DT - Angel Whispers

Happy weekend everyone, I'm here today with my Bee Crafty DT and with me I am bringing along this beautiful new addition to the Wordage collection Angel whispers. It is available in two different sizes. In my card today I have used the large stamp.


To make this card i have used:

Wordage Angel Whispers stamp

Backdrop Borders Distressed Flower

Distress ink

White embossing powder

Inkables easy frame - square



I started off by setting up my inkables template with my card underneath. Using a piece of ripped paper with various shades of blue distress inks I blended off the edge of the paper to make the cloudy tunnel.

Over the top and around the edges I blended seedless preserves. After that I stamped the distressed flower border and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I continued to stamp the angel sentiment with a smokey grey ink, I made sure that this was dry before I bump stamped the sentiment again with watermark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Clare DT - Ghetto Blaster and Dylusions paints

Good morning all, its looking like it's going to be another glorious day today. I should be able to empty my wash basket and then get some playtime in the craft room.

This week it's all about Banksy again with Ghetto Blaster boy meets Dylusions paint & Ink.

For this card I used:

Inspired by Banksy Ghetto blaster

Wordage Life & rain

Dylusion Paints

Dylusion inks

Inkables template Metal work alpha

Inkables template chain link fencing

Distress ink

To make this card i blended Dylusion paints Postbox red, Lemon zest and Cut grass for the background on the card with a bending tool. Once dry i sprayed the cut grass ink along the green edge of the card and tipped it to create the cactus.


I stamped on my Banksy Boy and with the metal work alpha Inkable template i sprayed Postbox red ink, I flipped the template so that some of the ink on the negative side got used.


Once dried I stamped the Life sentiment and with Black soot Distress ink and a blending tool I worked through the Chain link fence template.

I love the way that the paints and inks work so well together. The paints blend flawlessly.

Kerrie DT - Fashionette 'Mary'

Hiya and welcome to my Friday Post for Bee Crafty

This week I have been back into my comfort zone of pretty & girly

I chose to colour 'Mary' she is such a pretty girl and I matched her to a pretty floral paper 

I coloured her using my fave alcohol markers in colours to compliment the theme of the paper, trimmed the image down and inked the edges using Distress Inks 'Tattered Rose' & 'Spun Sugar'

To create the foliage I stamped the larger branch from the 'Branches' set using Distress Inks 'Forest Moss' & 'Crushed Olive', I cut them out and layered them up with some paper flowers and buttons

I added lots of  layers and jaunty angles as I love them

I pinched a sticky note from my planner stash to create the tab for the sentiment which I stamped using some Wordage stamps 'With Love' and 'Hugs & Kisses'

Thank you for visiting today come back soon for more Gorgeous Projects from the Design Team

Marleen DT - Branch

Morning blogger friends..

A post this morning for 

Once again I had a new shipment of fantastic stamps from Bee Crafty.
Im like a little kid in a sweet shop when i see the parcels land through my letterbox and this time was no diffenrent. So away to my craft room I went and strait away whipped up this little card I have to show today.

Ive used the "Large Branch" stamp from the BEAUtanical range
as well as my trusty sentiment stamp "Best wishes/Special thoughts".

 For this card I cut a mat to fit my card blank.
I then cut a circle out of the mat and put thecut-out to the side for using later.
I then took my mat and covered in several green distress inks. and a quick spray of a home made glimmer spray before piercing the edges with a pokey tool and adding to my card blank on foam pads.
Taking my cut-out circle I took my branch stamp and stamped of the edge. I used black staz-on ink to make sure it wouldnt smudge when I added a bit of brown distress ink round the edges. I stuck the circle dont flat onto the card through the circle alredy made.
I finished with a bit of brown distress ink around the edge of the whole card and voila..

And that is all from me for today. I cant wait to play with this stamp some more.
Many thanks for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Clare DT- Tree shillouette, Brushos and three cards!

The weekend is upon us yet again and i for one am overjoyed. Even though it has been a four day working week it seemed much longer. Well i am here with my Bee Crafty slot and this week I have brought to you three cards using one stamp, the fabulous Beautanicals tree shillouette stamp. Along with the stamp, for each card I used Brushos and embossing powder. The cards are all different in many ways but i have kept the technique similar. I will post the links for additional products used with the photos.



For this make I stamped the tree with watermark ink and heat embossed with clear powder. After that I sprinkled the brushos over the tree and spritzed with water to explode the colour. Once dried I randomly stamped Crackle paint stamp and used the Inkables easy frame heart mask and mini blending tool along with tea dye distress ink to ink my heart frame. To finish i applied liquid pearls around the heart.






In the above card once the Brushos were dry I went over the tree coloured areas with a Wink of stella brush.

Kerrie DT - Banksy 'Greatness Girl'

Hiya and welcome to my Friday post for Bee Crafty

This week I got inspired by and inky/textured piece I saw on pinterest - So I chose to use some polyfiller, inks and one of my New Stamps 'Banksy - Greatness Girl', I really like this stamp and I think this brickwork template was a good choice for the background

First I cut a piece of watercolour cardstock to a few mm smaller than my 7x7 card blank. I love the texture of watercolour card and to bring this out I ran a distress ink pad in 'Antique Linen' over the cardstock. I then chose a brickwork template and applied polyfiller with a small pallet knife, not over the whole of the cardstock but roughly through the middle for an exposed brickwork look.

After letting the polyfiller dry I used a sponge and lemon juice around the edges of the card and to stamp the 'Large Branch' over the top left corner. I dried the lemon juice with a heat gun because when heated with a heat gun the lemon juice burns nicely to create a dark aged effect (smells nice too).

I stamped 'Greatness Girl' using archival ink - and the stamp is so great I got a perfect imprint even over the texture.

I inked through the 'Metal Work Alpha' inkable template using Black Soot distress ink to add to the graphitti look of the project. I also inked the edges using the Black Soot ink. I handpainted some ground under her feet using Chalky Finish paint in charcoal.

To finish the project I painted on mod podge, waited for it to dry and then fixed the project to mirror board before attaching to the card blank.

Thank you so much for visiting my post today - remember to visit again soon for more gorgeous projects by the Amazing Design Team.

Marleen DT - "Clover" backdrop border stamp.

Hi guys.. 
Back with another post for 
For today I've made another scrappage. I've used the Backdrop border stamp called "Clover"
 You can find it in the STORE with all the other goodies.

 This stamp is one of those that can be used for so many things. So far, Ive only had a couple of plays with it, but it is one I will be using over and over.
For todays project, I wanted a subtle look. I wanted the stamp to frame the photo of my daughter yet to really set it off, and I really think I achived that.
 Ive used my border stamp arround the 2 sides of a sheet of A4 card stock. I used Adirondack ink in Aqua. I just inked up the stamp and stamped one after the other till the whole side was covered.
The stamp is a clear stamp so its really easy to line them up..

 The rest of the LO is simply just layering up. The tag, the flowers, the gems and washi tape is all bits from my stash and the text is made on my dymo and just added to the page with foam pads to raise the words.

And that is all from me for today. 
Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Clare DT - Love Hill

Happy bank holiday sunday everyone. It's that time of the week again for my Bee Crafty spot. Well i was very excited this week when some of the Dylusion paints landed at my door. How could i resist trying out these beautiful jars of coloured fluid?

For this card i used:

Dylusion paints

Inkables - Easy frame - Heart

Inkables - off set dots

Inspired by Banksy - Love hill

Wordage - Live with no excuses

Mini ink blending tool




To make this card I painted onto card using a dry brush with fresh lime, vibrant turquoise and lemon zest.

After this had dried, through the inkables easy template I used my mini blending tool with the same three colours and stamped the circles through the heart. I also painted around the heart carefully with black and then blended with my finger.

I need my heart template again now to stamp the Banksy inspired image in the middle. The heart mask is also very versatile. It helps to protect my stamped image. When i go back in with the black paint and off set dots inkables template.

Finally with some white paint i added some paint using the bottom of a spray bottle in various positions.


Thank you for having a look at my blog post today. If you have enjoyed reading then don't forget to follow using the above link. I look forward to reading your comments you can do that down below.


I hope you all have a craftastic bank holiday.
