Monday Bee Crafty DT post- Brusho Butterfly

Hi bloggers, for this weeks Bee Crafty DT project I've got my Brushos out again... if you've never had a play with Brushos they are coloured powders that are activated by the addition of water.  I love sprinkling the powders on to card, spritzing with water and watching them burst into colour.  


Materials
  • White 6" x 4" card blank
  • White & black card stock
  • Brushos (Brilliant Red, Ost Blue & Lemon)
  • Onyx Black Versafine ink
  • Large Butterfly
  • WORDage Sets: Everyday Sentiments 1
  • Star Dust Stickles
What to do
  • Cut some black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and some white card slightly smaller again.
  • Take the white card and sprinkle some of the Brushos over it, spritz with water and dry using a heat tool.
  • Stamp the butterfly using Onyx Black Versafine ink in the centre of the card.
  • Stamp the greetings using Versafine ink
  • Mat the white card on to the black card, and glue both to the card blank.
  • Finish by adding some Stickles to the wings of the butterfly.
That's it for this week, I hope you liked my card, and I will be back soon to share another with you... until then pop past the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog to see what my team mates have been getting up to.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Mama makes DT post - One day at a time

Hi bloggers, for my blog post today, I'm sharing another DT card I have made for Mama Makes.  For this card I have used the Watercolour Inspiration stamp set, and a flower stamp from my stash.  




Materials
  • 6" x 6" white card blank
  • White card
  • Watercolour Inspiration stamp set
  • Dainty Daisies stamp set by Hunkydory
  • Distress Oxides (Worn Lipstick, Twisted Citron, Spiced Marmalade)
  • Onyx Black Versafine ink
  • Star Dust Stickles
  • Glue & Foam pads
  • Paper Distresser


What to do
  • Cut a piece of card approximately 5" x 5".
  • Put some of the Distress Oxides on a blending mat, spritz with water and drag the white piece of card through it.  Dry with a heat tool, and repeat until you get the look you want.
  • Stamp the flower in the bottom left corner using Versafine ink.
  • Distress the edges of the paper before gluing to the card blank.
  • Stamp the sentiment on to a piece of spare white card, and make in to a banner.  Distress the edges of this, then attach to the card blank using foam pads.
  • Finish by adding some Stickles to the flower.


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

Take care.

Monday Bee Crafty DT post - Family masterpiece

Hi bloggers, it's my turn to share another Bee Crafty DT project with you all, and I'm playing with another one of my new stamps that I bought last year.... I absolutely adore this image.  This is a huge stamp, and she makes quite an impression! 


Materials
What to do
  • Cut 3 pieces of white card slightly smaller than the card blank, and each one slightly smaller than the previous.
  • Take the smallest square and blend some Seedless Preserves and Peeled Paint over it, blend some Peeled Paint through the Dinkables template, and randomly stamp sections of the Crackle Paint using Seedless Preserves.  
  • Stamp Rosie using Black Soot Oxide, and also the sentiment.  Finish by lightly blending some Black Soot all around the edges of the square of card.
  • Take the next size square of card and blend Seedless Preserves around the edges, and take the last square of card and blend Peeled paint around the edges.
  • Mat and layer up all the squares, and glue to the card blank.
That's my project complete for this week everyone, and I'll be back soon to share another with you all.  In the meantime remember to check out the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog to see the fabulous creations my teammates have been making.
