Emily DT - Hope

Hi everyone, hope you're all having a great week!

This week I have been using the Inspired by Banksy range of stamps again and this card features the beautiful Hope stamp.
Here is the card

I did my piece of background card first which I created using scarlet and purple Brushos. I mounted it onto black card.

I then stamped the Hope stamp onto some wide hessian ribbon and pulled some of the bits out to create the effect I was after.

I stuck this onto the background card and then mounted the whole thing onto my card blank.
I used the Wordage With Love stamp just to finish the card off.

I hope you like it!

Kerrie DT - Yuletide Eric

Hiya and welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty

Ive been caught up this weekend in a massive Kraft Korner sort out, reorganising and unpacking loads of goodies its taken 3 days so far and Im still not finished - but I stopped over the weekend long enough to make another Festive card using one of the New Elf Stamps in the Yuletide Collection - he is Eric & Candy Canes and so so cute 

I have kept my card very simple as I thought this Gorgeous Stamp didn't need a lot of fuss as he looks adorable with his Christams Candy - I chose some gorgeous backing papers in more muted Christmas colours, Golden Mirror Board and a gorgeous red Doily

I coloured Eric using my fave alcohol markers using colours to match in with the backing papers and I chose to use the 'Twas the Night' sentiment also from the Yuletide Collection

I hope you like my Festive Make - please visit the Bee Crafty Blog again soon for more gorgeous makes by the Talented Design Team

Clare DT- Value of a moment

Good morning fellow bloggers. It's a lovely sunny morning here in Torbay which is fabulous after the torrential downpour we had yesterday. Long may the sunshine remain! I am here with my weekly Bee Crafty spot and this weeks card does have a bit of a summer feel with it's beachy scene.



For this card I used:

Wordage - Value of a memory stamp

Beautanicals - Ferns

Inkables heart template

Distress inks

Just a clean and simple card this week brushing my distress inks through the inkables template. I also stamped some ferns through the template to create some depth. Once I removed the inkables heart i continued stamping with the fern and finally I stamped the sentiment.

I am finally on my holidays and hoping to be blogging a little more frequently. I have however had the inconvenience of breaking my elbow this week! Fortunately it was my left arm and as I am right handed it shouldn't hold me back too much. I am feeling a little foolish though! When you announce at A & E that you injured yourself rollerskating you get that all knowing look. Oh dear, at my age I really should know better!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by today. I will hopefully see you in the week with some more crafty moments. Remember you can leave your comments below and follow by clicking on one of the links above.

Emily DT - Swing

Hi everyone, this week I have been super busy so I have done a quick card which I think shows off the stamps beautifully. Here is the finished card

I started by using distress ink and an ink duster around the edge of some card. The colours used were bundled sage, forest moss and squeezed lemonade. I kept it darker round the edge and lighter towards the middle.

I then stamped the BEAUtanicals ferns round the bottom and BEAUtanicals cow parsley around the top to create a frame. I used forest moss, mowed lawn and bundled sage distress inks and used first and second generation stamping to create a feeling of depth.

To finish the card I stamped the Banksy inspired Swing and embossed it in black to make it stand out from the foliage.

I was pleased with how this card turned out and I will also make it in different colours.
I hope you like it!

See you next week

Marleen DT - Fleur & Freddie

Hello again..

Once again wednesday, once again Bee Crafty, Once again a tag lol..

As many of us do, we have our stash, we have our favorites and tend to "forget" about the non favorites for a bit.. I do this a lot, be it my stamps, my washi tape collection, my papers, my ect ect..
Often we dont "forget" because we dont like the goodies, its simply just cause we have (more often enough) way to much to play with lol
And I am very quilty of this..

The stamp I played with for today, I actually love. Its such a cute stamp but its an occational stamp (many occations may I add) one that says LOVE. Now to be honest, I dont often make projects around the love theme so I have to (blushing here*) admit that this stamp had gone to the bottom of my Bee Crafty stamp box..

As I sat down to play, I knew I wanted to do something with my greeting - "Decision to try stamp", also from the Bee Crafty STORE - and I LOVE making tags so that was my next choice. So I sat down, made my back ground on the tag and started rumaging for my greeting. And that is when I "found" my
And that was it.. I knew strait up what to and how to finish my tag.

Im so glad I "found" Fleur & Freddie when rumaging my stamps. I love how this tag came out and it made me think about rumaging through my boxes more often. God only knows what other goodies I have forgotten about..

Thank you for popping by and for anycomments left behind.

Kerrie DT - Yuletide Eric & Elsie

Hiya and welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty

I'm still getting ahead with some of my Christmas Makes so this week I have made A 'Yuletide' Card with 'Eric & Elsie'

I created an Easel Card using two scalloped cardblanks - I stamped 'Eric & Elsie' onto watercolour cardstock then stamped the 'Holly Swirl' around the edges using clear embossing ink which I then tipped True White embossing powder over before heating with a heat tool to create a resist for later. Next I watercoloured the elves using my old travel watercolour kit which is over 12years old but still has lots left - I have recently started to relove some of my older craft stash. 

Once I had coloured 'Eric & Elsie' I then inked over the heat embossed 'Holly Swirl's using Distress Inks - 'Peeled Paint' and 'Fired Brick', once dry I buffed over the embossed areas using a dry cloth which removed all the ink from it.
 All the matticng and layering is using some pearlescent bronze card.

I used 2 'Yuletide' sentiments on the card, one for the card front and one for the stepper stop 'Dear Santa' and 'Circle Message Holly'

Thank you so much for visiting the Bee Crafty Blog today - visit again soon for more gorgeous projects from the Amazing Design Team xx

Clare DT - Beautanicals Dandelion

Good morning fellow bloggers. I have awoken to a glorious morning, I hope the sun is shining where you are? Here I am again with another card made using Bee Crafty stamps.


For this card i used:

Beautanicals - Dandelions stamp

Wordadge - Joy is a flower

Liquid pearls



I started off by brayering the background colour onto the card, once I had acheived my desired background I stamped the dandelion onto the card in a smokey grey ink and continued to stamp in various places, without re-inking, so that the dandelions appeared lighter in colour.

Again with the Dandelion I stamped around in moss green in the same manner. In the foreground I stampecd with a black ink pad.

Finally I added some liquid pearls and stickles for some dimension, shimmer and sparkle.

Emily DT - Love Hill

Hi all,
This week I have a beautiful card to show you using one of my favourite Banksy inspired stamps.

Here is the card

I started by stamping and embosing the Love Hill stamp on some white card and then randomly colouring it with distress inks and water. The inks I used were peacock feathers, squeezed lemonade and picked raspberry which is a combination I use a lot as I absolutely love the way the three colours go together. I mounted the inked card onto black and put it aside.

The background piece of card was done using spray ink and a can of air to blow the ink around. Once it was dry I added the large Sunshine Wordage sentiment. This was also mounted onto black card and then I assembled the card.

I added some crochet ribbon across the bottom of the background card and then mounted the image on foam pads to make it stand out. 

I hope you like the card!

Have a nice week

Marleen DT - Branch

Hello crafty friends :-)

Its time for my weekly slot for

This week Ive had a play with the 
Ive also used the "Best wishes" stamp.

You can find both in the STORE with all the other goodies..

Here is what Ive made for this week:

For this card I wanted to go nice and colour full. And I just love the reds and pinks in the distress range. So what I did was simply to cut an mat to fit my card blank and smother it in those colors.
I then took my branch stamp and stamped of the edges all the way round my mat till I was happy with the amount of branches.
For the greeting I simply took a piece of card stock and stamped the greeting twice and added the little "tail" under and added onto the card with foam pads.
A quick little card yet very striking.

And that is all from me for today. Have a great day and thank you for popping by.

Emily DT - Fleur & Freddie

Hi everyone. Today is mine and my husband's fifth wedding anniversary so I'm feeling all romantic!
Therefore I've chosen Fleur & Freddie to be the focus of my card this week.

Here is the card

 I started by masking off the middle of the card and colouring the border. I used picked raspberry distress ink which was roughly applied with an ink applicator and then went all the way round with the cow parsley stamp using black archival ink.

Then I stamped Fleur & Freddie Foot Poppin' Kisses in the middle. I'm not great at colouring in but I had a go at painting the image using distress inks and water. I think it turned out ok!

I hope I've managed to spread the love a bit this week!
See you all again next week
