Monday Bee Crafty DT Post - Have a marvellous day

Hi everyone, it's Monday so that means I'm up on the Bee Crafty blog sharing a new DT project with you all.  For this weeks project I've taken some inspiration from my fellow DT members and got my Dinkables out to play, this is a new one I recently purchased and I absolutely love it.  


What you need -

What you need to do -

  • Cut a square of black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and 2 squares of white slightly smaller again.
  • Take one of the white squares and stamp 2 butterflies, mask them off then blend some ink through the template.  Blend some Tumbled Glass around the edges.
  • Add some colour to the butterflies wings using a water brush and some distress inks.   When dry, use a craft knife to cut around the butterflies wings, this will give some dimension to your card as they will rise off the card.
  • Use Versafine ink to stamp the sentiment.
  • Tie some ribbon around the right hand side of the card.  
  • Take the other square of white card and splatter some distress inks on to it using a water brush.  Use foam pads to attach this to the other white card, and mat to the black card then glue to the card blank.

Close up showing the splattered ink under the wings.

That's it for this week peeps, if you're looking for some more ideas when using these amazing stamps then head on over to the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog.  See you next week!

Imagine Design Create DT post - Just For You

Hi bloggers, I'm back up on the Imagine Design Create blog today and I wanted to share with you a card I designed using the Fun In The Sun and Birthday Wishes Sentiments stamp sets.


Materials


What to do
  • Cut some black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and some white card slightly smaller again. Cut another square of black card approximately 1" smaller, and another white square slightly smaller than this.
  • Take the larger of the white squares and stamp the sentiment all around the edges using Onyx Black Versafine ink.  Mat this on to the larger of the black squares.
  • Take an acrylic block and ink up the top of it using Salty Ocean and the bottom using Old Paper, spritz with water and place the block on to the small white square of card... leave this in place for a few mins to allow the colour to enhance.
  • Remove the block and dry using a heat tool.  Use Versafine ink to stamp the sentiment.  Mat this on to the black card, and use foam pads to attach to the card blank.
  • On spare white card use Versafine ink to stamp the palm tree, and add some colour using pens/pencils of your choice - cut out.  Use Mustard Seed Distress ink to stamp the sun then cut this out.  Attach both to the card blank using foam pads.


That's my project complete for this week everyone, I'll be back next week to share another with you all.  Pop on over to the Imagine Design Create blog and see what my team-mates have been up to.

Monday Bee Crafty - 4 hearts for you

Hi everyone, time to share another of my Bee Crafty DT projects with you all and this week I've been playing with the Style Wire Hearts.


Materials
What to do
  • Cut some black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and 2 pieces of white card slightly smaller again.
  • Smoosh some of the Distress Oxides on to a blending mat and spritz with water, drag one of the white pieces of card through the Oxides and then dry with a heat tool.  Repeat this, occasionally flicking water until you achieve the look you are after.
  • On the other piece of white card use Versafine ink to stamp 4 hearts, then use a craft knife to cut the centre of the hearts out.  Glue this card to the blended oxide card, then mat both to the black card and attach to the card blank.
  • Finish by adding a stamped sentiment.

For The Love Of Stamps DT Samples - Doctors & Nurses

Hi bloggers, I'm back to share my final blog post for the latest For The Love Of Stamps by Hunkydory launch, and it's time to show what I designed using the very cute Doctors & Nurses stamp set.  


I stamped the sentiment using Versafine ink down the left hand side of a piece of white card slightly smaller than the card blank, and matted on to black card before attaching to the card blank.  I stamped 2 images and added colour using Kuretake Zig pens (063, 028, 026, 091, 096, 022, 037) then cut out and glued to the card.  I finished by adding a stamped sentiment and a stethoscope.


I cut black card slightly smaller than the card blank, and white card slightly smaller again.  I took the white card and using Lucky Clover Distress Ink, stamped the heart trace all over.  I matted this to the black card, and glued to the card blank.  I stamped the bed, added colour using my Kuretake Zig pens (061, 062, 091, 028, 042), cut out and attached to the card using foam pads.  I finished by adding a stamped sentiment.


I matted some yellow stripey paper (Splendid Stripes paper pad) to a DL card blank.  I cut 3 small squares of white card, stamped the sentiment and images, then added colour with Kuretake Zig pens (091, 028, 062, 022, 038) before matting to yellow squares - these were attached using foam pads.  I finished by adding a few white gems.

That is it for this launch, I hope you enjoyed seeing my designs.

Happy Crafting!
Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

For The Love Of Stamps DT Samples - Just My Cup Of Tea

Hi everyone, I'm back to share some more of my DT samples for the new For The Love Of Stamps by Hunkydory launch... next up is the Just My Cup Of Tea stamps and mask set.  The sentiments with this set are just lovely, and we all know someone who loves a cuppa!


I stamped the teapot and teacup on to a smaller square of card (I stamped the cup first, masked off then stamped the teapot), coloured using my Kuretake Zig pens (050, 052) then added the sentiment in the centre of the teapot.  On the larger white square of card I stamped the sentiment around the edges, and a flower in each corner, adding colour again using my Kuretake pens.  I then matted on to silver mirri card before attaching to the card blank.


I masked off a panel and stamped various images in this (using Onyx Black Versafine ink and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide), matted on to black card and attached this to another piece of white card which had been matted on to black card - both were glued to the card blank.  I used Versafine ink to stamp a teacup and teapot on to white card, added colour using my Kuretake Zig pens (082, 083, 081, 080, 052), cut out and attached to the card.  I finished by adding a sentiment and some pearls.


I used the outer edge of the mask to blend some Hickory Smoke around a square of white card, and matted this to a square of white card with edges distressed with Mustard Seed Distress Ink, and glued to the card blank.  I stamped a teapot and teacups, and used the mask to add some colour and detail, then applied some Glossy Accents over these.  Once dry I carefully cut them out, and used foam pads to attach to the centre of the card.  I finished by adding some stamped flowers and a sentiment.


I hope you like what I designed using the gorgeous new stamps, I'll be back later with my final blog post showing what I created using the next set of stamps.
