Monday Bee Crafty DT post - 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,

Monday Bee Crafty DT post - Rainbow butterflies

Hi everyone, it's time for my Bee Crafty DT blog post for Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty... this week 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!

Monday Bee Crafty DT post - 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
