Clare DT - You are a star!

Good morning bloggers and happy weekend to you all. I'm here today with a little bit of Bee Crafty.

Now slapped wrists for me because it is Halloween and I am extremely guilty of not making anything from the fabulous All Hallows collection. I have unfortunately had half term lurgy and spent most of my week wrapped in a duvet with pills and potions galore, honey and lemon and boxes of tissues not far from my side. However I am going to share with you a recent card I made from the Inspired by Banksy collection



For this card I used:

Greatness girl stamp

Inkables star template


Embossing powder

White wax crayon



To start I stamped the main image and heat embossed. With the star template I traced around the star with a white wax crayon.

Then the fun part! Sprinkle those fabulous little pots of brusho colours over the project, spritz with water and watch the colour explosion.

Once dried, with an old paint brush, I painted bleach inside some of the empty spaces inside the image to lift away the colour.



Thank you for taking the time to stop by today.


Happy crafting,

Emily DT - Decision to try

Hi everyone,
Friday has rolled around again and it is my turn to do a card.
This week I have used a piece of card I made a while ago when I was using Brusho paints. I often batch make bits of card and keep them to use later.

The particular piece I used for this card was using turquoise, purple and sea green Brushos.

Here is the card

 I used a small scrap of Brusho card in coordinating colours to stamp my sentiment on. I used the Wordage Decision To Try stamp and cut the individual words out.

I mounted them onto the card in a random manner using foam pads.

I used the Flower Border stamp top and bottom to finish off.

Hope you like it!

Marleen DT - Halloween

Hey Everyone..

Wednesday again and time for my post for

Today Ive used the  "Halloween" stamps from the  STORE.I made a little card which I needed for an invitation for our halloween party.

This card is made using sparkle medium and a stencil for my background. I used a silver on top of black cardstock. While my background was drying i made my topper. I stamped my Halloween stamp, cut it to size and added black glitter glue on top. Once everything was dry I layered it all up with a felt cobweb and some overlays from my stash.

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

Good morning bloggers. It's been a busy old week at Bee Crafty, what with TV appearences and then the release of some fabulous new Yueltide stamps. That is precisely what I am going to share with you today.



What I used for this card:

Yueltide doodle bauble round

Yueltide seasons greeting


White embossing powder


Because when we make christmas cards we usually end up making tons! I thought i would keep the design of this simple. I stamped the christmas bauble in watermark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The sentiment was stamped with black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.

I sprinkled a mixture of green shades of Brushos, spritzed with water and just waited for my card to dry before layering onto some card to finish.


Thanks for taking the time to visit to. We love to hear your comments you can do this below. Feel free to follow the blog and keep up to date with what has been made.


Happy crafting,

Emily DT - Hope

Hi everyone, this week was a very exciting one for Bee Crafty with some of the Banksy stamps appearing on Hochanda. I was lucky enough to have some cards featured on the show and I thought I would write a quick tutorial about one of them.

Here is the card

I did the background by using alcohol inks containing mica in orange and red and then leaving it to dry covered in cling film.
Once it was dry I stamped Hope using Momento black ink. I went round the edge using the splatter swirl border in red ink and also used the 'dreams come true' part of the Wake Up stamp. I always like to show how versatile the stamps can be and that you don't always have to use the whole thing.

I mounted the topper onto white card and went round the edge using the red ink pad I used for the border.

Here is the card being shown on Hochanda

It was very exciting seeing Bee Crafty on the television and I look forward to next time!

Marleen DT - Halloween tag

Hey blogger friends..

A little post today for

Today Ive used a few of the Halloween stamps from the  STORE.I used "Happy Halloween" & "Halloween"

I had so much fun making this little tag.
I started with a plain manila tag but covered it in clear crackle varnish.Once that was dry I added a coat of red paint and left that to dry. Once all dry i stamped my circle "Happy halloween" stamp strait on top. That too needed time to dry. In the mean time I made my sentiment which is made from parts of the "Halloween" stamp. Simply just stamped on cheap card stock and smothered in distress inks and cut to size. I finished with a glitter spider and a piece of black lace.

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

Kerrie DT - Hope - Shaker Card

Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty

Eeeeks today is a very exciting day for Bee Crafty with our Bev on Hochanda TV 
Bev truely is a Natural at this Demonstrating Lark but bless her she was so Nervous about being Live
Join her at 10am, 1pm and 5pm over on Hochanda sky 663

I am so so Excited that some Samples by me are on the show along with Gorgeous Makes by Bev and the Amazing Design Team 

Here is one of my Samples from the Show - my 'Hope' Shaker Card

I used the Circle Template emboss the circle into the centre of a sqaure piece of card, but then cut it out to create an aperture. I cut a piece of acetate to fit behind the circle at attached using extra strong double sided tape, to create the window. Then I cut some foam tape into small pieces to stick around the circle on the reverse side leaving no gaps, more foam tape around the outside edge of the reverse of the square piece of card. 

I trimmed a piece of bronze pearlescent cardstock to a few mm smaller than the 6x6 scalloped edge card blank that i had chose to use. I had decided on pale hues for this card to show that the stamps can be used for softer makes as well as the artsy makes.

For the main image I used a piece of pearlescent white cardstock and inked from the edge to the centre using 'Antique Linen', 'Tattered Rose' and 'Victorian Velvet' Distress Inks and a small blending tool. Then using 'Pumice Stone' I stamped the 'Dandies' backdrop border along the bottom, and 'Hope' and her Balloon towards the centre so they would fit inside the aperture. I used a water brush to blend out around her feet so she appears to be standing on a little hill.

I fixed the bronze pearlescent square into the centre of the card blank, followed by the stamped image, then tipped in some white seed beads, Glitter and little punched flowers onto the centre of the image being careful not to spill out too far. I then fixed the Aperture Window over the centre to complete the shaker 

I really like how this card turned out

Clare DT- Angel Whispers Canvas

Good morning bloggers, it's my turn to post a Bee Crafty blog today. I'd like to show you a canvas that I've made using Bee Crafty's fabby stamps.


For this canvas I used:

Wordage Angel Whispers stamp

Fables & fantasy Delight stamp

Backdrop stamp Fur Elise music stamp

Backdrop crackle paint stamp

Inspired by da vinci script stamp

Inkables heart template

Inkables off set dots

Dylusions paints

Dylusion white linen ink spray

White paint pen


I started of by stamping the backdrop stamps onto my canvas. Next I applied some texture paste through the off set dots stencil.

I left this to dry before adding some Dylusion paints.


Once the paint had dried I added some Dylusion white ink spray to the top of the canvas and let it drip down the canvas.

Through the heart template and in the area where the sentiment was to be stamped I applied some white Dylusions paint.

Once all the paint had completely dried I stamped the Delight image and the angel sentiment. Finally I doodled some white dots around the heart using my white pen.


Thank you for stopping by today. If you have enjoyed your visit remember you can follow my blogging journey. I love to hear your comments too! You can leave one below.

Emily DT - Butterfly Tree

Hi everyone, I have been in my craft room a lot this week and I am a bit fed up of making Christmas cards (already!) so this week I have steered clear of my Christmas stamps.

Here is the card I have made

I have used the Tree Silhouette stamp along with the diamond plate inkables template.
I started by stamping the tree in black archival ink. Then I laid the diamond plate template over the top and taped it down. Using Tattered Rose distress ink I went all the way round the tree.
I then flipped the stencil over and lined it up to make the pattern into crosses.

I added lots of little coordinating butterflies all over the tree and stamped the Best Wishes WORDage sentiment onto a scrap of card. I mounted it on black and then raised it using foam pads.

The whole card was mounted on black and then onto the card blank.

I like how the card turned out and it could also be adapted for the seasons. I feel that this one is quite springlike as the butterflies look a bit like blossom.

See you next week

Kerrie DT - Glad I did it! - Wordage

 Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty

Just a quick make from me today as it's crazy busy in my little Kraft Korner today

I chose to use Yellow today mainly because its the one colour I always try to avoid - Do you have one of those colours that you just feel not so in love with??

I teamed my Distress Inks with the gorgeous 'Glad I did It (Large)' sentiment from the 'Wordage' collection

I kept the background of this card very simple to keep the Sentiment standing out as the Focal Point of the card. I inked around the inside part of the 'Label' Inkables Template as this leaves the shape clear of ink in the centre. I used 3 shades of Distress Ink 'Antique Linen', 'Scattered Straw' and 'Wild Honey' - the 'Glad I Did It' sentiment is stamped using rich cocoa ink

I used Gold Mirror Board for the Matting and the punched border. I wrapped Yellow & Brown ribbons around the punched border strip before attaching to the card using foam tape. I then tied a bow using the offcuts of ribbons and fixed this off to one side of the border strip using my hot glue gun I finished this ellement off with 2 hat pins pushed into the knot of the bow

I added some paper roses to the top left corner of the card using the glue gun again. I finished the card with a few antique gold gems

Thank You so much for visiting my Post today and I hope you will stop by the Bee Craft Blog again soon for more gorgeous projects from the Amazing Design Team

Clare DT- Wacki wares - Norris

Hi folks here is my Bee Crafty blog for this week. It's just a quick post this weekend as it has been a busy week and I'll be having an extremely busy weekend too!

Wordage have a wonderful day stamp

Dylusion paint

Inkables circle template

Glossy accents

To make this card I made the background on a gelli plate along with Dylusion paints and the inkables circle template. Once it was dry enough I stamped on the sentiment.

I stamped Norris onto some watercolour card and added some colour with distress pens, moving the colour around using a water brush.

Norris was cut out and adhered with some silicone glue. Finally I added some glossy accents to his glasses and lights.

Have a super weekend wherever you may be.

Emily DT - Christmas Baubles

Hi everyone, the cold weather is well and truly with us now and I have been cracking on with my Christmas cards.

The stamp I've used in this weeks card is quickly becoming my favourite Christmas stamp to use and it is the Bauble stamp. Because of it's size I think it works really well as a centrepiece to a card or you can pick out the individual elements to use.

Here is the card I have made this week

I have used a small aperture card I had in my stash. I took some white card and stamped and embossed the baubles in white. I then went over the top with three shades of acrylic paint.  You can't see in the pictures but it has a beautiful shimmer.

I went round the edge of the aperture with some blue ink and a piece of sequin waste.
I mounted the bauble card inside and added a Christmas sentiment.

Hope you like it!

Marleen DT - Family LayOut

Hey everyone..

Once again wednesday and time for a quick post for
Bee Crafty

Today ive used the "Family Masterpiece" stamp again. Its one of my favorite sentiments stamps from the STORE.

This A4 LO is made with distress inks as background and then layering up the different elements.
My sentiment stamp is stamped to the side to give it its own focus, away from the photo yet by underlining it with the black gems, drawing it back into the rest of the page.

And that is it from me today.

Kerrie DT - Never Regret - Maple Leaf Flower

Hiya and welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty

This week I am sharing with you an elegant make using the 'Wordage - Never Regret - Large' sentiment stamp as the main topper for the card and a handmade Flower made using the 'Beautanicals - Maple Leaf Solid' stamp

I was thinking of what to make and I wanted to put a flower on the side of a sentiment and I suddenly had the idea to make the flower using the Maple Leaf stamp

I stamped the Leaf stamp 6 times using a permanant lilac ink stamp onto pearlescent cardstock, I cut them out and shaped them using a foam mat and a large ball tool, I then fixed them together using a glue gun each one was layered on top on the one below offset to create a rosette flower. I stamped the 'Beautanicals - Branches' large branch onto more pearlescent cardstock using brown permanent ink then cut those out. 

I created the cardfront using lots of layers of cardstock which I had grabbed from my offcuts box again - I am a little addicted to using my offcuts and this shows just how pretty they can look. I added some lilac textured card in to tie all the elements together. The light beige cardstock is from a stamp set packaging (too pretty to throw away) which I wrapped brown spotty ribbon round then fixed to the cardfront.

The sentiment topper I made by die-cutting a large circle die from pearlescent cardstock and stamping the sentiment into the centre, inking the edges using the lilac ink again. I fixed this to a circle cut from the lilac textured cardstock then layering this onto a diecut doily circle and fixing to the cardfront centre using foam tape.

I used a glue gun to fix the flower to the right corner above the sentiment and fixed the leafy branches using the glue gun and slipping under the flower on each side. To finish i tied the left over ribbon into a bow which I attached on top of the ribbon using the glue gun again.

Clare DT - Seasons Greetings

Good morning bloggers. Now I wondered if it was a little early to write up this post but I know that lots of you are starting on your christmas makes so I thought I would share with you some of Bee Crafty's christmas selection.

For this card I used:

Crealies tag dies

Dylusion ink

Seasons greeting stamp

Yuletide holly swirl

Embossing powder - white

Embossing powder - gold

Embossing powder - black

Embossing powder - holographic


To make this card I inked a large sheet of card with polished jade and vibrant turquoise dylusions ink. I. Stamped the holly swirl three times in watermark ink and heat embossed with the three different embossing powders.

Using a square die I cut out nine areas of the holly swirls. With the spare card I cut out a tag using the Crealies Die, stamped on the sentiment and heat embossed with the holographic embossing powder. I also stamped with watermark ink the holly swirl and brushed over some mica powder from my stash.

I layered my small green tiles and arranged them on the card finally placing the tag on top.

Thank you for taking the time to visit today. Have fun this weekend what ever you maybe upto. If you have enjoyed your visit remember to leave a comment below.


Happy crafting,
