Imagine Design Create DT Post - Distress Oxide Christmas Wishes

Hi everyone, for this week’s Imagine Design Create blog post I decided to get the Christmas stamps out, I’m so excited we’re getting closer to Christmas, it’s definitely my favourite time of year.


Materials

What to do
  • Cut 2 pieces of white card slightly smaller than the card blank. 
  • Take the Oxides and smoosh them on a blending mat and spritz with water, take one of the white pieces of card and drag it through this, dry with a heat tool and repeat until the desired look is achieved.
  • Next randoly stamp snowflakes over this piece of card using both of the Oxides, blend some Iced Spruce around the edges of the card.
  • Use a circle die to cut an aperture in the bottom right corner of this, then place this over the other white piece of card – lightly use a pencil to draw around the aperture.
  • Stamp the sentiment using Versafine ink inside this pencil drawn circle, then carefully erase the pencil line.
  • Tie some ribbon around the left hand side of the inked card, then use foam pads to stick this to the white card with the sentiment.  Glue both to the card blank.
  • Finish by adding some pearls to the upper right corner.



That’s my project complete for this week, and I’ll be back next week to share another with you all.   Remember to pop over to the Imagine Design Create blog to see what my teammates have been getting up to. Until then, happy crafting!

Monday Bee Crafty DT post - Fleur & Freddie samples

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.

Materials



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... in the meantime why not pop on over to the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog to see what my team mates have been getting up to.

Imagine Design Create DT post - Snowflake Kisses

I’m back with the Snowflake Kisses stamp set as we’re getting ever closer to the big day… can you tell I’m getting a wee bit excitable?!  I wanted to make a nice quick and simple card this week for my Imagine Design Create DT project, and this is what I came up with!


Materials


What to do
  • Cut black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and white card slightly smaller again.
  • Add some of both the inks to a square acrylic block and spritz with water, place this block ink side down on the white piece of card.  Leave for a few minutes to let the colour intensify then remove block and dry with a heat tool.
  • Mask off around the blue inked square using tape, then randomly stamp snowflakes using Versafine ink.  Carefully remove the masking tape.
  • Stamp the sentiment I the bottom corner using Versafine, then mat this card to the black card and glue to the card blank.
  • Finish by adding the gems, and some of the Spectrum Noir sparkle pen over the top of the blue inked panel.



That’s my project complete, I hope you liked my design and I’ll be back next week to share another card with you all.  In the meantime pop on over to the Imagine Design Create blog to check out what my lovely teammates have been getting up to.

Monday Bee Crafty DT post - Dare To Dream

Hi bloggers, I'm back with my weekly Bee Crafty DT project for my Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog post - and it's time for the Distress Oxides to come out again.  I made my background first, then decided what sentiment I wanted to use and I thought that 'Dare To Dream' fitted perfectly.


What you will need -
What to do -
  • Cut some white card slightly smaller than the card blank.
  • Put some Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber & Vintage Photo on to your blending mat and spritz with water.  Pat the white square of card in to the Oxides, dry with a heat tool, and repeat until you get the desired look - flick water droplets to help achieve the oxidised look.
  • When you have the look you want, ink up the Splatter Swirl circle with Broken China and randomly stamp the swirl part around the edges of the card.  Attach to the card using glue.
  • Ink up the sentiment using Fired Brick, Fossilised Amber & Faded Jeans and stamp on to spare white card.  Cut out at an angle, and blend Faded Jeans around the edges.  Attach to the card using foam pads.
That's it for another week crafters, be back soon to share another DT project with you all.

Happy Crafting!
Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Imagine Design Create DT post - Christmas tag

Hi everyone, it’s Thursday which means I’m up on the Imagine Design Create blog sharing another DT project with you all… and this week I decided to make a simple little tag using my Oxide inks and the Snowflake Kisses stamp set.


Materials

What to do
  • Smoosh some of the Oxides on to a blending mat and spritz with water, drag the tag through this mix and dry with a heat tool, occasionally flicking water droplets and repeating until the desired result is achieved.
  • Stamp the snowflakes and sentiment using the various colours of Oxides, and blend some Worn Lipstick around the edges.
  • Finish by tying a ribbon through the top of the tag.



These tags could be created using any colours you wish, and would be ideal to pop on your Christmas presents this year.  I’ll be back next week to share another project with you all, until then happy crafting!  Pop on over to the Imagine Design Create blog and have a look at some of the fabulous designs by my teammates.
