Hello Dream Girl Card

  Hello!

This week on the Bee Crafty Facebook page there was a brand new stamp launch!!!  The bundle prices will stay in place until the end of the month and can be found on the website in the October Launch section.

If you didn't see it, all the live demos will remain on the page and our lovely Ann also made a fab video which is on the Bee Crafty YouTube channel!

So this week for my blog post I have created a card using 2 of the new sets but added a different sentiment...


I didn't take step by step photos as it was a fairly straight forward card to make but this is what I did..


1) On a piece of watercolour cardstock I stamped the Dream image using black archival ink.

2) Then I coloured the image using Ecoline brush pens and matted onto black cardstock.

3) On a bigger piece of cardstock I stamped some of the Journal Elements #2 mostly in two of the corners and mounted the image on top with foam tape.

4) Finally I stamped one of the Everyday Sentiments onto black card with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

Funky Card!

  Hello!

I have created a funky card for the blog this week that could be used for a number of occasions...


1) I started by layering up some distress inks one at a time and drying between each layer.  The colours were Carved Pumpkin, Wilted Violet and Twisted Citron, once the colours were smooshed on I also added a few orange splatters...

2) Using the same colours I then added some stamping with the Arrows set...


3) Next I stamped one of the borders from the Borders #1 set and added the smallest circle from the Journal Blocks with black archival ink...


5) Then the circles were coloured in with the distress inks and once dry white pen was added...


6) Finally a sentiment from Everyday Sentiments 1 was stamped out and mounted onto black card...

Vintage Dragonfly Art

  Hello!

Following on from a Facebook live that I did this week using some of the collage stamps, I decided to make a card using the Dragonfly Art stamp...


1) I started by blending some Tea Dye and Antique Linen distress ink over a piece of card...


2) Using Rusty Hinge distress ink I added some stenciling through the Damask inkable...


3) Next I added Gathered Twigs distress ink through the Medieval Trellis inkable...


4) To break up some of the darker areas I then splattered Salvaged Patina and Antique Linen distress oxide sprays across the card...


5) After making sure the ink was dry and using an anti static bag, I stamped the Dragonfly Art stamp using clear embossing ink then heated it with gold embossing powder.  I re stamped the dragonfly onto card in the same way then cut it out and layered it onto the main stamped image...


6) Finally I stamped a sentiment from Small Words onto metallic card and embossed again with gold and then matted and layered the whole card...

One Colour Card

  Hello!

I love using lots of different colours but this week I decided to see if I could create a card using just one colour.  I chose blue...


1) I started by using a blending brush to cover a piece of mixed media card with Tumbled Glass Distress ink.  Then after laying the Mandala 5 stencil on top, spritzed with water and lifted some of the colour away to create a ghosted effect...


2) Using the same stencil I then added some Broken China Distress ink through the Mandala at either side...


3) Next I took the Prize Ribbon Distress ink and swiped it all over the same stencil again.  I spritzed the stencil with water then placed it onto the card to create a print of the image.

4) With Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink I next stamped part of Time Measure on top of all the stenciling...


5) To create a frame I blended some more of the same colour around the edges of the card...


6) Finally I stamped and die cut one of the butterflies using the same colour and stamped out a sentiment also using chipped Sapphire and adhered them to the card...


Here are the products that I used:

Distress Background Journaling Girl Card

  Hello!

This week in my Facebook live I was using distress inks to create backgrounds for cards, so I decided to carry on with the theme...


1) First I used my blending brush with Kitsch Flamingo and Squeezed Lemonade on a piece of mixed media card...


2) Using the same two colours plus Carved Pumpkin I added some stenciling with one of the d'inkables from set 10 and also the circles, one layer at a time...




3) Next I used the same inkpads to add some stamping from the Journaling Girls Sam set.  Once I had added the coloured ink I also added some stamping with the black Hero Arts ink pad...


4) After that  I stamped the girl from the set, cut out and coloured with Ecoline markers...


5) Finally the card was put together with a black layer...

Bloom Layered Card

  Hello!

This week on the Bee Crafty blog I am sharing a card that I made by layering up stencils and stamps...


1) First I created some colour on a piece of water colour card using distress inks (Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron).  I applied the inks with a brush then splattered with water to create a distressed look...


2) Using the same ink colours I added stenciling with the circles d'inkable and flower from d'inkables set 10...


3) Next I used a white pen to add doodling around the circles...


4) With archival ink I then stamped the main flower and one of the leaves from the 'Just Bloom' set and then added some of the circles from the 'Journaling Blocks' set...


5) To colour the flowers and leaves I used ecoline brush markers and added white highlights...



6) For highlighting the circles I used white gesso, then went over the stamped elements with a black fineliner to refresh the lines...


7) As a finishing touch I stamped the sentiment from the same set onto black card and heat embossed with white powder...

'Future Girl' Art Journal Spread

 Hello!

This week I thought it was about time I completed some more pages in my tag art journal...

1) The pages of this journal are already pre coloured with distress oxide sprays so I chose the ones that I wanted to use...

2) Then I used the Honeycomb Multi inkable with Wild Honey distress ink to add some pattern to the pages...


3) Next I stamped the small ledger circle from the Dragonfly stamp set using black archival ink,..

4) After stamping parts of the Light Bulb Circuit stamp onto tissue, I tore some parts off and added them to the spread using distress collage medium...


5) Once this was fully dried I used my white and black pens to add some colour and doodles to the pages...


6) When I looked through my box of pre stamped images, I discovered one of the Winter Journaling Girls which had already been coloured and had glossy accents on.  The colours went with the spread so well that I decided to add her.  

7) Finally I chose a sentiment from Ticker Tape 1 that went with the look of the pages and stamped it onto black, heat embossing in white...
