New Stamps.....Yeah!!

Morning everyone, Barbara here again with a project made with brand new stamps from Bev at Bee Crafty......and, believe me, they're fab, you'll NEED them in your stash!
I started off by paining a small canvas with Dylusion Paints, then using a couple of different Bee Crafty stencils with distress inks in similar colours.
 Next, when the paint and ink was thoroughly dry I stamped the new 'Ground Elder' in Versamark, then heat embossed with gold & copper 'fine detail' embossing powder. I really, really love the Ground Elder stamp set.....
 I added a few dots of Liquid Pearls, and to finish, I punched two holes in the top of the canvas and added some twine.
 Well, hope you like my little canvas. DON'T FORGET to WATCH or RECORD the Bee Crafty programmes on Hochanda on Monday 29th February at 11am, 2pm & 5 pm to see mine and the rest of the DT creations with Bev's new stamps, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Emily DT - Circle Tags

Hi everyone. This week I have done something a bit different for me as I never think of making tags. I thought I'd give some a go so here is what I've made!

I have enjoyed playing with my circle frame stamps so I decided to use just the smallest one on these.

I started by getting some pieces of Brusho card I already had in my stash. I stamped the circles randomly around and then used the dotty background stamp to add some texture in coordinating colours.

I stamped the sentiments, one directly onto the tag, and two onto white card. The two on card I chopped up and glued on.

I finished them off by mounting them onto black and adding some ribbon and twine.

These are different from what I would normally do and I was really happy with how they turned out.

I hope you like them!

Watch out for Bev on Hochanda on Monday and I'll be back next Friday with some of my samples from the show.

For today Ive used the following stamps:
  You can find it in the STORE with all the other yummy goodies. 

I had so much fun making this card. I used distress ink for my background and for any colouring.
I then used a stencil with glitter paste to create texture on my background.
I stamped my greeting and cut it woth a die and finished with faux stitching and a coat of clear embossing powder.
My flowers are all made from repeat stamping and embossing powder of the posy before cutting them out, shaping them and layering them up.
I put it all together with some hessian, a few die cut leaves and my butterfly, alsp stamped, embossed, cut out and shaped.

And that is all from me for today. 
Thank you for visiting and please leave a comment and let me know you been here.
Many thanks and happy crafting.

'Inspired by Banksy' to the rescue.......

Good morning everyone, Barbara's Saturday, (yeah) so that means it's my turn for DT inspiration on the Bee Crafty blog.
This week I've used some older stamps (but new to me) to make a card for a young male.....I know, you're all groaning, young lads are always hard to make for ;-)
Anyway, this is the card I came up with.....

I inked the background with a few different shades of Tim Holtz distress ink....Scattered Straw, Ripe Persimmon, Fired Brick.
I then used the 'Inkables' templates,  Chainlink, Brick Wall with Hole and Honeycombe 3, and inked through with Fired Brick and Frayed Burlap (all inks available from Bee Crafty)

 I stamped around the edges with part of the Splatter Swirl and the bottom edge of the Greatness Words.  The words were stamped again on a spare piece of inked card and cut out.
Lastly I stamped Ghetto Blaster from the Inspired by Banksy range, with Versamark ink and embossed with black embossing powder.
These have been my favourite ink colours for a long time, and I thought they worked perfectly with a 'grungy' style of card. 
Hope you like it.
Back soon, have a great weekend,
Barbara. x

Emily DT - Be Yourself

Hi everyone, this week I have been playing with my new stamps, which includes the style wire circle frames and a new sentiment. I have put them together to create this simple yet effective card.

Here is the card...

I started by taking a blank square of card and randomly stamping the medium and small style wire circles. I made sure they overlapped and filled the piece of card. I stamped the circles in Stazon ink.

Once the ink was dry I coloured in the circles and the overlapped areas all in different colours. I used distress markers and the colours used were: peacock feathers, broken china, faded jeans, chipped sapphire, mowed lawn, pine needles and peeled paint.

After I coloured them I went over the colouring with a water brush, just to blend the lines and it also gave it a watercoloured effect which I quite like.

I stamped the Be Yourself sentiment on a piece of white card then trimmed and mounted it onto a coordinating green. I stuck it on using foam pads.

I finished it off by mounting the whole thing onto green and black card.

This card was simple to do. The only thing that took any time was the colouring and it would look great in other colours too. I hope you like it!

Kerrie DT - Life is Good

Hiya and welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty

This week I have been playing with a few of my New Bee Craft Stamps and oh how I love them

I teamed the Stamps with Inkables Templates and lots of Distress Inks

Items I used on this project that are available from Bee Crafty



I trimmed a piece of  watercolour cardstock and inked through the 'Easy Frame Circle' using first 'Spun Sugar' and then 'Worn Lipstick' distress inks. I inked over the 'Circle' cut out from the frame set into the corners of the cardstock. I then inked over the corners again using the 'Circles Template'. Once dry I sprayed the 'Antique Linen' stain spray through the 'Dots Template' i sprinkled over some salt and dried using my Heat-It tool.

I then I stamped the 'Style Wire - Frame' offset from the pink circle using embossing ink and heat embossed using gold embossing powder. I also inked up just the swirls of the 'Splatter Swirl Circle' and stamped it twice around the wire circle frame, I heat embossed these using the gold embossing powder.

I then inked up the stem of the 'Flower Distress Border' and repeatedly stamped this around the edges to create a frame, using embossing ink and gold embossing powder I heat embossed like before. I used a scrap of card to Ink and heat emboss just the Flower from the Flower Distress Border, I then cut these out, I embossed them over the backs using a round embossing tool and a soft embossing mat to give them dimention. 

I stamped the 'Life is Good' WORDage stamp into the centre of the circle using 'Frayed Burlap' distress ink. I then fixed the dimentional flowers to the edge of the circle (where the two Swirls meet) using my hot glue gun. I inked the edges of this topper I created using 'Pumice Stone' distress ink.

To finish my card I matt and layered the topper using Cream and Brown pearlescent cardstocks.

Emily DT - Better By Change

Hi everyone, this weeks card features one of my favourite ways to create a background - spray inks.

I love the effect you get using spray inks and the result is different each time.

Here is the card I have made...

I started by colouring two pieces of card, one using oranges and one using greens. I just randomly sprayed the ink on and left it to dry.

Once it was dry I stamped the Better By Change and Butterfly stamps onto the green piece. I then cut out the butterfly and chopped up the sentiment and mounted it onto black. I cut them out with scissors rather than my paper trimmer as I wanted them to be a bit random and not uniformly straight.

I stamped the butterfly onto the orange and glued the green one on top. This way you don't have to cut out the fiddly bits!!

I stuck the words on using foam pads and mounted the whole thing onto black.

I really love this card and I love the contrast of green on orange. I also really like the texture created by the spray inks.

I hope you like the card as much as I do!

Marleen DT - Valentine

Hello again :)

Once again wednesday and my turn to share a bit of inspiration for 

Well I already had a project made for today, I had it blogged and ready to go, when I remembered that Valentines day is only a few days away.
As my hubby happens to be home for Valentines day this year I thought I best make him a wee card.
My Bee Crafty stamps happend to be on my table when I realised this and at once I saw a fun challenge to get a card together.
I already had the Fleur and Freddie "Holding Hands" stamps which was an obvious choice but I also wanted a romantic background. I then remembered that the Banksy "Hope" stamp also had a heart on it.. and my back ground came to life..
 My Background is made on mulberry paper. I just love how everything works differently on this compared to cardstock.
I simply cut my paper to size to fit my card blank and started stamping the heart from the "Hope" stamp. I then cut the hearts of the "Holding hands" stamp (dont worry they are easy to line up together on my clear block again) and stamped that in the gaps.
I used versamark ink and red embossing powder and this is where the fun of mulberry paper comes in. The powder simply melt into the paper when heated so when you feel it, you would think the hearts was part of the paper and not stamped on top.
I added a bit of red distress ink over the paper using my blending tool in very light motions.
 Fleur and Freddy are stamped onto watercolour card and coloured with distress markers and then fuzzy cut.
 I diecut 2 hearts also from mulberry paper and stamped my greeting "Live with no excuses" using Archival black ink. I tried with versamark and embossing powder but it didnt work as text is so small and the versamark seeps into the paper. The Archival dry instantly so problem solved.
On both of the hearts as well as my background, I added a bit of gold embossing powder.

And here you go. The finished card. Now I just hope hubby likes it..
Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind..
Oh and not to forget, Happy Valentines to you all..
