Monday Bee Crafty DT post - Believe

Hi everyone, it's time for me to share this weeks Bee Crafty DT project for my blog post for Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty.  I decided to get my Brushos out for this weeks card as I haven't played with them for a couple of weeks.


Materials needed - 
What to do -
  • Cut some black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and some white slightly smaller again.  
  • Take the white card and place the heart template over it, sprinkle on some Brushos and spritz with water - carefully remove the template and allow card to dry.  
  • Use Versafine ink to stamp the dandelion in the centre of the heart.  
  • Take the Live Laugh Dream stamp and only ink up the word Believe using Versafine and stamp in the bottom right corner.  
  • Mat this on to the black card, and glue to the card blank.  Finish off by adding some Stickles to the dandelion.



Just to show the sparkle given by adding some Stickles.

That's another project finished, I hope you liked it, and as always if you do have any questions or comments then please do get in touch.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Imagine Design Create DT Post - Lucky to have a Mum like you

Hi everyone I’m back with a new Imagine Design Create DT project for my weekly blog post.  This week I have used the DearMum A6 stamp set, and I only needed to use 3 stamps to create this card.  I really love the sentiment on this card, and this is the stamp set I will be using this year to make my own Mum's birthday card.


What you need
  • 6” x 6” white card blank
  • white card
  • Dear Mum A6 stamp set
  • Worn Lipstick Distress Ink
  • White satin ribbon   
  • Glue & Foam pads                                                                                                                          


What to do
  • Cut white card slightly smaller than the card blank, and another 2 pieces slightly smaller again.
  • Take the largest of the squares and blend some Worn Lipstick around the edges and glue this to the card blank.  Take the next white square and glue this to the card blank.
  • Take the smallest white square, blend Worn Lipstick over the entire piece, and then randomly stamp roses.  
  • Wrap a piece of ribbon around and glue to the card blank.  Add a white bow.
  • Finish off by stamping a sentiment using Worn Lipstick, and matting on to a piece of card previously inked with Worn Lipstick, then another piece of white card, and attach to the card using foam pads.
That's it for this week bloggers, I hope you liked what I designed using these fab stamps - if you have any comments or questions then please do get in touch.

Monday Bee Crafty DT post - Christmas samples for Hochanda

Hi everyone, I'm sharing the samples I made for Bev's recent Bee Crafty show on Hochanda ... and I was so excited to get my parcel as it was Christmas stamps!  Now anyone who knows me will tell you that my most favourite time of the year is Christmas, so to get lovely new stamps to play with in July is just the best thing ever for me.  I was planning on putting some Christmas tunes on to accompany my crafting...but thought it might just get my 2 wee boys a little too excited for Santa coming!

This is an MDF portrait artboard covered with Moonstone Lustre Luxe, then I heat embossed some Spikey snowflakes with Blue Glitz and Metallic Silver Sparkle WOW powders.  I finished off by tying some white organza ribbon around the left hand side and adding a silver metal snowflake, and adding a sentiment.


This is a 6" x 6" card - I created a panel by masking off a section and blending some Lucky Clover Distress Ink over the card.  I used Onyx Black Versafine ink to stamp the Holly Swirl border stamp over this panel, then I matted this onto some black card. I finished off by adding a stamped sentiment and some green gems.


This is a 6" x 6" card - I heat embossed Feathery snowflakes all over the left hand side using Red Glitz WOW embossing powder, and matted this on to some red card, then glued to the card blank.  I finished off by adding a sentiment from the Everyday Christmas Sentiments stamp set, and some red gems to the upper corner, and to the centre of all the snowflakes.


This is a 7" x 7" card - I created a background using Distress Oxides (Faded Jeans & Broken China), and then stamped the Snowflake Flurry stamp in Faded Jeans randomly over the card.  I matted this on to a square of white card, then onto a square of card with edges coloured with Faded Jeans.  I finished off by adding a panel with a stamped sentiment and a clear snowflake.


This is a 8" x 8" card - I randomly stamped the Snowflake Flurry stamp over a square of white card using Distress Inks (Lucky Clover & Candied Apple), I then cut a circle aperture in the bottom right corner, and added some red ribbon and a bow around the left hand side.  I placed this card over a square of card slightly larger, and used a pencil to draw a faint line around the circle so I knew where to stamp the Everyday Christmas sentiment in Onyx Black Versafine ink.  I coloured around the edges of this card with Candied Apple, then added the stamped panel to this using foam pads.  I cut another larger square of white card, and coloured the edges of this with Lucky Clover, and matted the other cards on to the this, then glued all to the card blank.  I finished off by adding some Star Dust Stickles to the snowflakes to give some sparkle.


This is a 6" x 4.25" tent fold card - I used Onyx Black Versafine ink to stamp the Everyday Christmas sentiment down the left hand side of a piece of white card slightly smaller than the card blank, tied some white organza ribbon around the right hand side and matted this on to some gold mirri card before attaching to the card blank.  I heat embossed 2 MDF snowflakes with Metallic Gold WOW embossing powder, and glued these to the bottom right corner.

I really enjoyed making these samples, and I hope you've enjoyed seeing them, if you have any comments then please do get in touch.  Remember to pop over to the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog too to see lots more inspiration from the Design Team. I'll be back again next week to share a new project with you all.

Imagine Design Create DT Post - Mini Paw Prints Flower

Hi everyone, for my post on the Imagine Design Create blog this week, I decided to try something different using the Mini Paw Prints stamp set by Imagine Design Create, and thought I’d try to make a flower out of the hearts - it just shows how versatile these stamps are!  This is a really quick little card to make, and is very straightforward.


What you will need -
What to do -

  • Take the mat layer, and using the Versacraft inks, randomly stamp Woof & paw prints over it.  Glue this to the card blank.
  • On separate white card, use Apricot Versacraft to stamp 5 hearts.  When dry, cut out and arrange in a flower shape, and adhere with 3D glue gel to the centre of the card.
  • Finish off by adding a button in the centre of the flower.

 

That's it for this week bloggers, I'll be back soon with another project to share with you all.

Until then, Happy Crafting!

Imagine Design Create DT Post - Z Fold Retro Gamer

Hi everyone, I'm back with another post for the Imagine Design Create blog, and for this week's DT project I decided to make a Z Fold card - I absolutely love this style of card fold, and it worked really well with this stamp set.


What you will need -

 What to do -
  • Take the card blank, and score the front panel in half, then open out fully and cut a 1.5” strip off the long side.
  • Cut 2 panels of white card slightly smaller than the card blank (inner panel and front panel), and using a blending tool, blend Distress Inks all over both.  Flick some water droplets over the blending and dab with paper towel.  Stamp various images, using both inks, on to the panels, then glue to the card blank.
  • Take the Z-fold mechanism, use Distress Inks to stamp  Press Start & Game Over, and glue to the card blank.
  • On spare card, stamp the Retro Gamer sentiment in Salty Ocean, and cut out using the circle die.  Blend some Cracked Pistachio around the edges, and glue to the Z-fold mechanism.  Stamp a few aliens using both Distress Inks, and cut out using a small circle die then arrange these around the sentiment.
