Hochanda Samples for Beecrafty

Morning bloggers..
And thank you for stopping by..

Today I want to share all my samples I made for the last BeeCrafty show on Hochanda.
Bev had a mix of new and older christmas stamps on the show and they proved very popular. She also brought some of the Inkables Templates (which are all favorites of mine..)
Bev also showed us something totally new to BeeCrafty.. MDF windows... and boy they flew off the shelves lol..
MDF is something I've personally not done a lot off, and I must admit I found it a bit scary.
Anyway, I have to say, in the end, I really loved the process. It made me really think about what I wanted to make, and made me think about colours, texture ect ect before even starting. Normally I just go with the flow and start over if it dont work, but here I had to think about the process..

I made 15 samples altogether for the show. Only a few got shown on the screeen this time but I hope I can still give you all a bit of inspiration with these amazing stamps.

Here is my MDF Window.. The kit contains the back (where I stamped and painted), the window pane and a foot for both to stand on. Find the kit HERE.
 I made mine as a wall hang instead of using the foot

 This one is made using the Inkables Templates layered up and then stamped on top.


 THis one is stamped and covered with a double sided sticky sheet and covered with glitter.

 This one is made using the ofcuts from the MDF window. 


 This one is also made with the inkable Tempates. I stamped through the circle stencil to get the rounded shape.

 Lots of embossing poeder and distress ink


 Ive made this back ground before and still love it. HERE is a link to the original tutorial on how to make it.


 This one is stamping and mica powders.



And that is all from me for today. I hope I've managed to inspire you a bit to have a go with these amazing stamps.

BeeCrafty Inspiration - CAS

Hey blogger friends..

Todays post is my weekly spot for

Ive made a CAS (Clean & Simple) card for this week.
Its not a style Im very good at, nor a style I do often but just once in a while it comes over me lol..

This week I pulledout my "Tall Dandelion" stamp, and the  "Every hour is a dream" stamps.

This one was very sinple to do. I cut my mat and drew little dots the whole way around the edge with a black fineliner. I then cut a smaller rectangle and stamped my dandelion a bit off the card. I covered up most of my greeting so i only inked up the word dream and stamped it in the corner.
I finished by matting my dandelion on to silver mirri card and added it to my card.

And that is all from me for today.

Hey Bloggers..
Time for my weekly spot for 
 
I've had a play with the "Feather Dreamer" Art set stamps.
Find them in the STORE with all the other amazing goodies from BeeCrafty.
 
 My appologies, this is not the best pic Ive ever taken. It got a bit blured over the text and im affraid the card has already gone to a new home so I cant re-take the pic.

This background is made with Brusho's. I love playing with them and a little bird told me that BeeCrafty has them back in stock. Find them HERE
 
My feather is stamped with versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder.
I did the same with the 2 big words in my greeting but I masked of the words and stamped the text in the middle with black.
I finished by adding a touch of gold embossing powder around the edges and matting on to black cardstock. 

And that is all from me for today.

Weekly Inspiration for BeeCrafty..

Hey Bloggers..

Time for my weekly spot for 

Ive had another play with a "Inspired by Banksy XL" stamp.
I used the "Ghetto Blaster"
Find the new "Inspired by Banksy XL" stamps HERE.

 I cant take credit for this background. A FB friend of mine had made a card with a background like this and she gave me the link to the original  post. Find it Here.
After making my background I decided that a crisp black image and sentiment and a black mat would finish my card perfectly. I simply stamped my image and my sentiment with Versamark and used black embossing powder to give it the crispness.

And that is all from me for today.

Bee Crafty - Hochanda samples - Banksy XL

Hello Bloggers
and welcome to my corner of the www.

For today I want to share the samples I made for the BeeCrafty show on Hochanda, yesterday.
Did you catch the shows? Our Bev was fab as always. Great demo's and always so lively and fun.

If you missed the shows, catch them on "catch up" over on Hochanda and all the stamps will also be in the BeeCrafty STORE with all the other yummy goodies.
Find the new "Inspired by Banksy XL" stamps HERE.

Here are all my samples:
 I started with a green sheet of cardstock. I stamped my Ghetto Rat and embossed with black embossing powder. I then cut up, Yep CUT up my "friendship" stamp to isolate the "friends" and stamped repeatedly and embossed with different colours of embossing powders.
I finished by adding the brick stencil over and added a bit of distress ink.
 The picture dont really do this card justice. The card is actually high gloss as I covered the whole  area around the "Flower Riot" boy with clear embossing powder.
This card is made on linnen textured card so it also have loads of texture even though its flat.
This is also the reason that my boy aint more solid in colour. The texture makes it more diffecult to get a solid stamp and this was one of my first attemts on linnen card. If I had wanted a more solid image, I would just have restamped him. The stamps are all clear polymer so very easy to see through. However I decided to keep him "faded" as it really matched the sentiment. I did however outline my boy woth a black marker just to make him "pop" more.
 No magic tricks here. Just loads of diftress ink on linnen card, stamped in black, water splashes and rounded corners.
 This one is the same as above really. Only difference is, that I stamped "hope" on a seperate piece of card and kept the distress ink lighter (same colours as background)
I stamped the ballon seperate also and embossed it with black embossing powder.
 On this one I decided I wanted to try something different. I love black on white, but decided to do white on black instead. I just stamped "Hope" and my sentiment on to black card and heat embossed with white, cut it to fit my card blank and made the silver strip but cutting the strip from scrap card and embossing it with silver. The balloon I stamped and added black embossing powder bar to the bottom of the string which I embossed with white.

 Oh the glitter came out for these next 2. I DO love the effect of glitter but by god, it makes a mess.. No matter how careful you are lol..
This one was made by adding double sided sticky sheet onto my cardstock. I measured it to size first. I then stuck on the black strips of card and covered the rest in glitter. The trick is to burnish the glitter really well. that will stop too much from falling off in the post.
The stars are diecut and I stamped and coloured my "Ghetto blaster boy" with distress ink.
 This one is made similar to above. Only difference is that I stamped and inked my background first and then added clear glitter. My "Balloon girl" is embossed with black embossing powder.
 Very simple.. Lots of distress ink, stamping and water splashes.
These stamps are so big they can carry a larger card alone.
 Very simple again. Distress ink, stamping & water splashes. Only difference here is that I ran my card stock through my big shot with the brick stencil.
And the same again. Just different colours..

And that is all from me for today.

Bee crafty - More leaves..

Hello bloggers 
and welcome to my slice of the www..

Today I want to share my weekly post for 

Last week I totally forgot that I was to share the last 2 samples that I made for the June BeeCrafty show on Hochanda. I already shared all the cards and tags I made but I also made 2 scrappages.
I dont thing they made it on air (I missed bits of the shows and havent had time to catch them up yet). There are so many sample for Bev and the presenters to show that its close to impossible to share them all. So that is where the blogs come in handy. We can "take our time", show what we have made and have a platform to answer any questions on how we make things..

Anyway, I've used the new BEAUtanical stamps and Inkables, and they are all availiable in the BeeCrafty STORE, HERE.

 This page is a pic of my youngest, Abbie. The page is made using the stamps and distress inks.

This one is a pic of my 2 elder babies, Emma & Michael. For this one I used the sentiment stamp to make my background and I used the Inkables to make the leaves. The bigger words are from stash.

And that is all from me for today.

Bee Crafty Inspiration..

Hey Bloggers..

Once again wednesday and my turn to share a bit of inspiration for

I was having a good ole play one evening and thats how this card came round.
Just lots oyummy distress ink and my favorite stamps..

This is just a distress background that I splashed with a bit of water. Once dry I stamped with one of my favorite Bee Crafty stamps, the "Fabulous Flowers - Corner". I just love this stamp and its one of those I pull out time after time. I also used the "WORDage - Decisions to try" stamp. I stamped it on to a piece of scrap card and coloured with the same distress ink as on my back ground, before cutting each word out and glueing on to my card.
I decided I wanted a bit more dimention onto my card, so I stamped my flower stamp onto more scrapcard, coloured and fuzzycut. I covered each flower with clear embossing powder before shaping and adding to my card with glue gel.

  And that is all from me for today.

Hochanda Samples 1

Hello Bloggers..

Today I want to share the samples I made for the Bee Crafty show on Hochanda last friday.
Our Bev was showing the brand new stamps (hand drawn by Sam) and inkables and had teamed them with some of the older stamps from the STORE. A perfect blend that we all loved playing with.

Not all of the samples we make, makes it on to the screeen. There are 5 of us on the team as well as the 3 boss ladies, so you can imagine how many samples it would add up to.
Ive added all my samples, bar 2 - my scrapbooking pages -to this post. I will share my scrappages next week.
 Distress crayon on an embossed background. I stamped strait onto the background with the sentiment. The tree is heatembossed with black powder and a bit of distress ink added to the middle.
 This one is far more bright then what shows up here. Its made with the inkables and distress ink.
This one is a good exsample of how fantastic the inkables are. When you buy a set you get both the inny and the outy.. So you can cover an area yes still do the outline. I just love that..
 More distress ink. I also stamped with distress ink.
 Even more distress ink. Stamped with Archival.
Distress ink, water splashes and white embossing powder.
All the words are from the set shown on Hochanda, I just covered up the words I didnt want with a post it note, inked up, removed the post it note and stamped.
 Distress crayons all the way.. I used the inkables to make my leaf.
 A distress ink background with watersplashes. Stamped with versamark and heat embossed with white powder.
 This one is made on a distress ink background. Leaves stamped with distress ink and "coloured" by just using a wet paint brush "swirling" the colour around inside the leaves. The topper is made with the inkable and distress ink.
This one is made using the inkables  and distress inks.
 
And that is all from me for today.

Bee Crafty Inspiration..

Hey bloggers..

Im jumping strait into it today as I once again let life fly by and dropped the ball. Cant wait till schools out tomorrow and things will finally slow doen for a bit..

My post today is my usual wednesday post for
Bee Crafty  

Ive once again used the "Feather Dreamer" stamp set.
Dont forget, all the stamps can be bought individual as well as in sets, over in the STORE.

 This one is nothing but distress ink. I used 4 different colours. Making the back ground first by simply blending the different colours and then stamped and inked the edges with the darkest colours.
My sentiment is also stamped and edged with the darkest colour.
Very very simple card but I have to say i love the colour combo and its a card that could be made in any tones and still be amazing.

Before I go.. I just want to let you know that our Bev will be back on Hochanda this Friday at 11am, 1pm and 5pm.
If you want a wee sneak peak of the AMAZING new stamp, which are hand drawn by our Sam, pop over on the Bee Crafty Facebook Page..

That is all from me for today.
