Emily DT - Spread Your Wings

Hi everyone, I hope you've all been making the most of the gorgeous weather we have had this week!

I have made a card this week which features some of the stamps which have appeared on Hochanda recently.

Here is the card I have made...


I started by cutting a square of white card and colouring it with Twisted Citron distress ink.
I stamped over this with the crackle stamp using Crushed Olive distress ink. I stamped it in two halves making sure the join was where the white strip was going to cover.



I cut the white strip of card to size and mounted it on black. I stamped on the sentiment in black ink and stuck it onto my card topper.


I finished it off with a gorgeous butterfly. I cheated a bit and used the printed acetate which comes with the stamps. I cut round the butterfly and mounted it using cosmic shimmer glue. I only glued the middle and raised the wings off the page slightly.


Everyone has their favourite colours and I don't tend to use green very often but I love how this card turned out.

See you next week!

Marleen DT - Same goodies, different outcome..

Hey bloggers..

Todays card is made for BeeCrafty
using the new Birds & Butterflies stamp set and one of the 

The brown background is made with Distress Oxides. I used both brown colours, Vintage Photo and Walnut stain. I just smudged them on with my blending tool.
I took my crackle paint stamp and lay it flat on my table. I misted it with water and took my brown background and plopped it down on the stamp. Meaning I stamped the "wrong way round". I took my card to the stamp, not the stamp to the card.
I left it to air dry so it takes a wee minute before the stamping shows but its worth the wait.

While my background was drying I covered my MDF birdcage with Cracked Pistacio Oxide ink and made the little strip thats sits behind my background. I also stamped my greeting and cut it apart.

The rest was really just cutting my background at an angle, stamping my bird and stick it all together..

Now..
If you are part of the BeeCrafty Facebook group, you would have seen our Emily posted last night. And funny, she has made a project, very different from mine, BUT will you believe that we have used the same goodies.. and nope, none of us had seen nor knew the other of us was creating with the same goodies. So Ive asked Emily if it was ok to include her project here also (and she said yes ofcourse or I wouldnt have posted it lol) 

Emily's Project using the same goodies as myself. Links above.
 Is'nt her project fab? I just love it. So very different from mine yet using the same stamp and birdcage.
  But that is all from me today. Thanks for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Lorre-Anne DT - Lustre Luxe Tags

Hi bloggers, for this weeks Bee Crafty DT blog post for Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty I wanted to share a couple of MDF samples I made for Bev's recent shows on Hochanda (Monday 5th June).  Now this was a first for me as I've never used MDF before, plus I got to play with the fabulous new Lustre Luxe too!  You definitely need Lustre Luxe in your life, this is a metallic paint which is so creamy and shiny - and it gives amazing coverage!  I've used it on card, MDF and various types of ribbon.

Materials needed -



I used blending foam to apply Moonstone Lustre Luxe over the MDF tag.  On spare white card I stamped the large bird, 2 small butterflies and a sentiment using Versafine ink.  I took a little Sea Green Lustre Luxe and mixed it with some water, and used this to colour the birds and butterflies, and I added them to the tag with foam pads.  I also used the Lustre Luxe/water mix to splatter some green over the MDF tag.  I die cut the sentiment, then used blending foam to apply some Sea Green Lustre Luxe.  The Lustre Luxe was also really easy to apply to the lace, and I then tied it through the hole on the tag. 


For this tag I again used blending foam to apply Moonstone Lustre Luxe, and when dry (which doesn't take long at all!) I used Versafine ink to stamp the script all over, and to also stamp 2 large butterflies and a sentiment on to spare white card.  I blended Sea Green and Golden Gate Lustre Luxe over the sentiment then cut out, and attached to the tag using foam pads.  I mixed the Lustre Luxe with a little water and used it to add some colour to the butterflies, cut them out, and glued to the MDF tag.  To finish off I added some colour to some white organza ribbon using the Lustre Luxe, and tied this through the hole at the top.

So that's my first ever MDF creations complete, and I can't wait to get another play with some more, plus I'll shortly be putting in an order for some more Lustre Luxe as I NEED the purple and blue now!

Until next week, happy crafting everyone.
Hugs,

Emily DT - Dream

Hi everyone, yet another week has flown by and I've been busy making samples for the next Hochanda show so I thought I'd share one of my favourites with you.

Here is the card I have made...


I started off by cutting a square of card 6x6 inches and I masked off an area using the dotty inkable and the large circle inkable. I coloured inside the circle using Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feather and Wilted Violet.

I then removed the inkables and once it was dry I stamped and heat embossed the Dream sentiment in white, It didn't stand out as much as I'd like so I went round the edge of the letters in a silver pen.


I went round the edge of the card using the splatter swirl border and randomly inked it using the same three colours. 


I stuck my topper onto white card and then mounted it onto my card blank using foam pads.

I like how this card turned out and this is one of my favourite combinations of colours. I hope you like it too!

Make sure to tune into Hochanda on Saturday and Tuesday and I'll be back next Friday with some more inspiration :)

Lorre-Anne DT - Rainbow Butterflies

Hi everyone, it's time for my Bee Crafty DT blog post this week and I wanted to share with you one of the samples I made for Bev's recent shows on Hochanda (Monday 5th June).  I got to play with the gorgeous Birds & Butterflies and Everday Sentiments stamps... I can't recommend these sets enough! These will allow you to make so many cards for lots of different occasions. When I seen the butterflies I thought they'd look really good in rainbow colours and so this card was created.

What you need to make this card -
What to do -
  • Cut black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and white card slightly smaller again.
  • Take the white card and use Distress inks with water to splash some colour around the card, then cut a circle aperture in the middle.  Mat this on to the black card using foam pads, and glue to the card blank.
  • On spare white card use Versafine ink to stamp 7 butterflies, and use the Distress Inks to colour them in.  Cut them out when dry.
  • Stamp the sentiment using Versafine and cut out using a circle die.  Use foam pads to attach this to the centre of the aperture.
  • Arrange the 7 butterflies around the aperture.
That's it for this week and I'll be back next week to share another project with you.  Please leave me a comment if you have time as I love to hear from you.

Happy Crafting!

Emily DT - Hello You

Hi everyone, sorry it's a bit late in the day this week. I am so in love with the card I have made this week so I really hope you all like it too.

Here is the card I have made...


I started off with a piece of card from my stash. It was coloured using dylusions sprays and then left with cling film on until it was dry. This leaves a gorgeous textured pattern.

I stamped and heat embossed the smaller ground elder stamp in white.


I then cut out a square frame using dies and mounted it onto a card blank. The blue piece was stuck directly onto the card blank and the frame was mounted using foam pads to add some height.

I then stamped and cut out a small sentiment from the new everyday sentiments set. These are so handy and I can see them being used a lot!


This card looks so effective considering it took hardly any time to produce. I really hope you like it as much as I do!

Lorre-Anne DT - Distress Oxide Life

Hi crafters, I'm back with my Monday blog post for Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty showing my latest Bee Crafty DT project.  I've been playing with my Distress Oxides, and I decided this week to remake a card I had previously made using Distress Inks... with a few small changes.  The older card can be found in my blog archives around May 2016.


What you need to make this card -
What to do -
  • Cut a 6.5" x 6.5" square of brown card, and a square of white slightly smaller than this.
  • Take the white card, and using a blending tool, blend the Distress Oxides on it.  Flick water droplets on this, and dry.
  • Ink some Vintage Photo around the edges of the circle template to give the impression of a bubble.
  • Stamp the sentiment in the centre of the 'bubble' using Versafine ink.
  • Mat this to the brown card, and glue both to the card blank.
That's it for this week bloggers, I'll be back next week with another project for you.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Emily DT - Lustre Luxe Tag

Hi everyone, back again! This week I have been playing with the new Lustre Luxe paints. They are absolutely fabulous and so different from other products I have used. They are metallic and really opaque and so their coverage and finish is fantastic.

I have been using them to make samples for the upcoming Hochanda show on Monday 5th and I wanted to share one of them which I was really happy with.

Here is my project...


I used a large MDF tag and applied the lustre luxe straight onto it using a foam ink applicator. I used the purple pearl and ocean blue, and used a wet baby wipe where the colours met to blend the colour. Once it was dry (which is no time at all) I stamped some of the butterflies from the new Birds & Butterflies set in silver.



I also stamped and heat embossed some of the butterflies in silver onto white card. I then used some watered down lustre luxe to colour them in using a paintbrush. When they were dry I cut them out and glued them on. I only glued the middle and lifted the wings to create some dimension.


I stamped a sentiment onto white card and added it at the bottom on foam pads.


The lustre luxe has such a beautiful metallic finish and covers and blends wonderfully well. It really is a fabulous product and I shall definitely be treating myself to some more colours.

I hope you have liked the project I have created this week, and you shall see it and lots more samples on Hochanda next week.

Lorre-Anne DT - Butterflies

Hi bloggers, I'm back with my regular Monday DT post for Bee Crafty and decided to go for quite a monochrome look this week.  This is a nice simple card to make, and doesn't take very long to make either.


What you will need -

What you need to do -
  • Take the white card square and, using Versafine ink, randomly stamp butterflies over the entire card.  Mat this onto a square of black card slightly larger, and adhere to the card blank using glue.
  • Stamp the sentiment onto the strip of white card, and mat this on to a piece of black card slightly larger.  Use foam pads to secure this to the top section of card blank.
  • On a spare piece of white card stamp 2 butterflies, and colour them in with the Distress Inks and a water brush.  When dry, cut them out, and glue these to the left hand side of the sentiment.
That's my project completed for this week, and I hope you liked it.  As always please do leave me a comment as I love to hear from you all.

Crafty hugs until next week

Emily DT - Ghetto Rat

Hi everyone, Emily here again with some more inspiration for you all. I have rediscovered my Banksy stamps this week as we were using them for our Hochanda samples this month. I wanted to make a card using the Ghetto Rat so here is the card I have made...


I started by cutting a square of white card and choosing some colours of paint. I used some cheap poster paint in pink, purple, blue and lime green. I splattered the paint onto the card using a paint brush then used a piece of paper to lift some of the paint off and flatten out the drops. This created a cool pattern and added texture.


Once the paint was dry I chose come inks in similar colours and stamped the small wire circle frame randomly and then stamped the Ghetto Rat onto some white card in pink. I cut him out and mounted him onto the background using foam pads.


I chose a sentiment and stamped it in purple in the corner of the card, then mounted the whole thing onto purple then onto a card blank. 


I love how this turned out and shows you can use 'girly' colours with the Banksy stamps, they don't all need to be bright or grungy colours.

I hope you like the card too!

See you next week

Lorre-Anne DT - Can't Buy Love

Hi everyone, it's time for me to post this weeks DT project for Bee Crafty.  I'm now going to have a regular Monday spot and this week I have decided to make the following card.  I wanted to make a project using just 1 colour of Distress Ink, and opted for the gorgeous Mermaid Lagoon.

I've decided to do this blog post as a tutorial with photos showing each stage of the process, I apologise in advance for the lighting in some of the photos as it was a strange day up here in Scotland with bright sunshine one minute and black clouds the next!

The finished card is as shown below.


What you will need -


What you need to  do -


Using Mermaid Lagoon DI, stamp the diamonds along the centre of the card.


Taking a piece of white card, cut slightly smaller than the card blank, use a blending tool to blend Mermaid Lagoon DI around all the edges.


Stamp the large heart using Mermaid Lagoon DI, and using a water brush, flick some ink over the heart to create this splattered effect.


Stamp the sentiment using Mermaid Lagoon DI and cut out.  Cut a piece of white card slightly larger and blend ink around the edges.  Mat the sentiment on to the larger card with glue.


Mat the distressed diamonds onto the blended ink card.


Add Glossy Accents to every diamond.


This is the effect you will end up with - looks really good on the distressed diamonds!


When you have adhered everything to the card this is what you will end up with.

I hope you enjoyed todays tutorial and that you'll think of giving this card a go.  If you have any comments then please do get in touch.

Until next time
Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Emily DT - Poppy Border

Hi everyone,

I hope you're all having a nice week. This week I have made a beautifully simple card, which takes no time at all to make.
Here it is...


I started by cutting a square of card the size I wanted. I inked my poppy border stamp using Distress Inks. I used my mini inks which meant I could use it like a pen to colour the parts I wanted each colour. You could also do this using Distress pens or something similar. I spritzed it with water to make sure the ink was wet and stamped it down one side of my card.


I stamped a sentiment in the top left corner and finished it by mounting it onto black card.


This card took literally a few minutes to make and I think it is so effective. I love how it turned out and I hope you do too! 

See you next week

Emily x
