BeeCrafty - Pocket watch

Hello Blogger friends 
 and welcome to my blog.
  Once again my turn to share a bit of inspiration for BeeCrafty.
For today I had a bit of a play with some of the stamps from the Steampunk collection. Ive used the Pocketwatch and the Gears. I also used the "Time Flies" sentiment.
 This one is made with distress inks. Just pressed the ink pads of my chosen colours down onto my craft mat and sprayed the ink with water. Then simply took a piece of water card stock and smooched it through the ink pools. I dried my card stock and smooched it through the left over ink and dried again.

I used a die to cut the edge of my water colour piece to give it the edge with the stitches. I then lay the background on to the card and drew a faint pencil line following the edge. I removed the background again but on my card I had the pencil line. Icould now see where to stamp my gears on the card to make the border.


Once that was done I stamped the pocket watch on to my background and also stamped a mask on a post it note. I cut the mask out, layed it over my watch and stamped the gears around the clock. That way the watch would be in the front with the gears behind it.



I finished of with my greeting. Im notorious at cutting up my stamps and this sentiment actually have more words on it, but I just cut out the time flies bit and stamped that..
And that is it from me today. Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Graciellie Design - Inspiration

Hey Bloggers

Its time to share a bit of mid month inspiration for

Of you follow me on FACEBOOK, you might have seen that I have just "discovered" foiling. Well ive known about it for a long time as my sister is a big fan, but until now, Ive not had the tools to try it out myself. Well after a visit to my sister over the summer, where she showed me how to do it, Im now hooked and I went strait home and ordered a toner printer. 
I already had a laminator so I decided to try that put before I decided if I need to invest in a foiling machine.. So far so good, my laminator is doing good and here is what Ive made.



 


I have used a vast amount of designs from the Graciellie Design STORE.
The Rose/clock is from the "True Direction" set.
The Dove is from the "Peace" set.
The butterflies are from the "Black &White" paper pack (also digital)
The sentiment is from the "Wonderful Things" set.

All I did was to print all the designs I wanted. I use "Word" to re-size and print. Once printed on my toner printer I ran the designs through my laminator with the foil.

The last thing was really just to cut out the designs, layer them up and voila. I just love this card and Im truly in love with foiling now. 

And that is all from me today. Thanks for popping by and for any comments left behind.

BeeCrafty Inspiration

Hello Blogger friends 
 and welcome to my blog.

Its my turn to share a bit of inspiration for BeeCrafty.
I have a couple of journal pages to share today.

This page is made using alcohol inks on top of vellum. You add a drop or 2 of alcohol ink and blow on it with a straw. It gives a cool effect and was really fun making.
I then took my vellum and stuck on to one of the pages from the BeeCrafty Journal. I stamped and heat embossed in black and added a few black paint splashes to finish.

This was my second attempt with the alcohol ink. Although I didnt stamp onto it, I wanted to share it. This page is also stuck into my journal.

 This one is one of the half pages. Its distress ink and more distress ink through the dinkable stencil. I then stamped and heat embossed in white and finished by making the little white dots around the edges with a white marker.

Goodies I used:

Journal
Selection of Banksy Inspired stamps
(Im linking to the whole section as there are so many amazing ones)
Feather Dinkable Stencil
(again linking to the whole section, not to be missed)
Distress ink
Embossing powder
White marker
Alcohol ink

  And that is really it from me today. Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Graciellie Design Inspiration Blog Hop

Hey Bloggers

Its time for the 2nd "New Release" Blog Hop over on
Graciellie Design.
Pop over to the BLOG to start the hop

This month we are using the new release of  digital stamps and papers called Magnolia Dreams. Pop over in the STORE to see all the amazing designs from Graciellie. Gracielle has also teamed with Paper Temptress and released a matching paper pack.

Here is what I have made for this hop.
For this card I started by printing my background sheet. That way had it ready to colour matching for the next step. I then transferred my magnolia flower in to "WORD". (I simply copy and paste). I resized it and copied and pasted that flower 10 times, then printed. I printed onto water colour card stock (140g) as I used my ZIG markers to colour.

As I said, I printed the flower 10 times. This was because I cut out the middle section on 5 of them and used them to decoupage the remaining 5. It gives the flowers so much more dimention on the card.
Once I finished colouring I went over all the flowers with a wink of stella shimmer pen.

Once my flowers was done it was time to print my sentiment. I had the size of my card measured out on a piece of copy paper so when I printed I could see the size of the sentiment versus the card. It took me a few tries to get the size just how I wanted but it was worth it.

And then it was just a matter of popping it all together. A bit of distress ink around the edges of the sentiment and a bit of faux stitching.







 If you are taking part in the blog hop, you now have to pop over to Milagros
If you only just popped on to my blog but want to join the hop, pop back to Graciellie Design.

  And that is all from me today. Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Graciellie Design - New release Bloghop and Exciting news..

Hello Blogger friends..

Well will you know... Remember that guest spot I did for Graciellie Design in June?? Well a DT call came up at the end of June and I decided to apply.. And I got Lucky and GOT IT...

So today I'm sharing my first post as part of the Design Team..
As always we are sharing the new releases in a blog hop and by god they are amazing.

I have used the new "Magnolia Dreams" digital stampset and the "Magnolia Dreams" digital papers. You can find them and all the other amazing artwork in the Graciellie Design Etzy STORE.

 

Here is what I have made for this bloghop:

 


 I just love these papers and this image. I started by printing my papers, my flower and my sentiment. I use word for all my printing and I just copy and paste images and papers strait into word and I can re-size all I want.
I printed my flower onto water colour card stock but my papers and sentiment onto smooth white card stock.
Once printed, its best to leave your prints to dry for a bit, especially when colouring in. I tend to print in the evening and work with the prints the next day.

My flower is decoupaged and coloured with Zig clean Colour Real water colour markers and I added a bit of sparkle with a shimmer marker. I used a little bit of distress ink around the edges of the papers but other then that nothing.. Nothing at all.. These designs are so beautiful, they can carry themselves.

Right BLOGHOP..
Pop over to Graciellie Design where everything will be explained but simply hop from blog to blog, remebering to leave a comment on each blog.
Im the last in line so if you have landed her you should already have visited everyone else..
If you visited "only" to see my project, thank you, but DO jump back to Graciellie Design as this blog hop is very special, but as I said, all is revealed over on the Graciellie Design blog..

Here is the list for the blog hop

And that is all from me today. Thanks for popping by and for any comments left behind.

BeeCrafty Inspiration - MDF Tags

Hey Bloggers..

Well I am officially on holiday all of July as my children are all off school and its time for some quality time, meaning I dont make any projects for my design teams in this month. But but but... I decided to schedule a few posts with a few projects I had lying..

So for this weeks post for BeeCrafty I wanna share a couple of MDF tags.
Both tags was made for past Hochanda shows, but neither was dry and ready to send by my deadline so was left behind..

 This one was made with poly filler. Its a grit one that I got in the £shop and I love using it. I added a thick layer strait to the tag and then took my stencil and pressed into it. Once dry I added lots of guilding wax and distress inks. My girl is also a BeeCrafty stamp and she was stamped, coloured with water colours and fuzzy cut before added to my tag.

 This one here is using the same stencil as above. I used texture paste through the stencil and once dry I added lots of Distress crayon. I love how this one turned out, but honestly would know what to do with it lol

Anyway, here are the goodies Ive used:


And that is all from me today. Thanks for popping by and for any comments left behind.
