Hi everyone, for this weeks Bee Crafty blog post I'm sharing the samples I recently made for Sam's Hochanda shows. How cute are Fleur & Freddie - I adore them and I can see myself using these stamps for so many cards.
- Card blanks & Cardstock
- Fleur & Freddie stamps
- Everyday Sentiments 2
- Inkables - LOVE, Multi Hearts, Hearts, Heart
- Dinkables - Hearts, Dots, Sunburst
- Heart MDF Artboard
- Onyx Black Versafine ink
- Distress Inks - Salty Ocean, Ripe Persimmon, Wilted Violet, Black Soot
- Distress Oxides - Seedless Preserves, Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry
- Lustre Luxe - Sea Green, Ocean Blue, Golden Gate
- Kuretake Zig Clean Colour pens
- Small silver hearts
- Organza ribbon
I created a background by dragging a piece of white card through some Distress Inks mixed with water. I blended some Black Soot through the Inkable template, then blended some Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink through the Hearts Dinkable. I added some detail using a white gel pen, and finished by adding the stamped characters.
I made a shaker card using the large heart template - I drew around the heart shape on a square of white card then carefully cut it out using my kraft knife. I created the background by blending Oxides through my Inkables and Dinkables, and used a fine liner pen to draw a squiggle around the edge of the card. I added a piece of clear acetate to the inside of the heart aperture using red liner tape, then carefully placed foam tape all around the aperture (leaving no gaps!). I stamped my chosen characters on another piece of white card and coloured using my pens. I added some small silver hearts to the acetate, carefully removed the backing from the foam tape and put a layer of wet glue over the top of the foam - this gives you a little time to get the 2 pieces of card lined up easily - and attached this to the other square of card.
I used the small trio of hearts to create a background and coloured them in using my pens - I wanted to go for a bright rainbow look! I then stamped the characters onto a piece of white card, again adding colour using my pens, and finished by adding a stamped sentiment.
The background was created using the Multi Hearts background and Salty Ocean & Picked Raspberry Oxides. I stamped Freddie & Fleur on a die cut oval, and finished by adding a stamped sentiment and some ribbon.
I stamped the balloon heart in each corner, and the sentiment along each edge before adding the stamped characters in the centre. I coloured using my pens, then finished by adding some Stickles.
I coloured the MDF heart using the Lustre Luxes and then added some Golden Gate Luxe through the Sunburst Dinkable. I stamped the image on to spare white card, coloured in using my pens then very carefully cut out using my kraft knife. I finished by adding some stamped clouds.
I had so much fun playing with these stamps, and I hope you like what I've created using them.
I'll be back next week to share my latest DT project with you all.
Hugs, Lorre-Anne x
