Emily DT - Ghetto Rat

Hi everyone, Emily here again with some more inspiration for you all. I have rediscovered my Banksy stamps this week as we were using them for our Hochanda samples this month. I wanted to make a card using the Ghetto Rat so here is the card I have made...

I started by cutting a square of white card and choosing some colours of paint. I used some cheap poster paint in pink, purple, blue and lime green. I splattered the paint onto the card using a paint brush then used a piece of paper to lift some of the paint off and flatten out the drops. This created a cool pattern and added texture.

Once the paint was dry I chose come inks in similar colours and stamped the small wire circle frame randomly and then stamped the Ghetto Rat onto some white card in pink. I cut him out and mounted him onto the background using foam pads.

I chose a sentiment and stamped it in purple in the corner of the card, then mounted the whole thing onto purple then onto a card blank. 

I love how this turned out and shows you can use 'girly' colours with the Banksy stamps, they don't all need to be bright or grungy colours.

I hope you like the card too!

See you next week

Lorre-Anne DT - Can't Buy Love

Hi everyone, it's time for me to post this weeks DT project for Bee Crafty.  I'm now going to have a regular Monday spot and this week I have decided to make the following card.  I wanted to make a project using just 1 colour of Distress Ink, and opted for the gorgeous Mermaid Lagoon.

I've decided to do this blog post as a tutorial with photos showing each stage of the process, I apologise in advance for the lighting in some of the photos as it was a strange day up here in Scotland with bright sunshine one minute and black clouds the next!

The finished card is as shown below.

What you will need -

What you need to  do -

Using Mermaid Lagoon DI, stamp the diamonds along the centre of the card.

Taking a piece of white card, cut slightly smaller than the card blank, use a blending tool to blend Mermaid Lagoon DI around all the edges.

Stamp the large heart using Mermaid Lagoon DI, and using a water brush, flick some ink over the heart to create this splattered effect.

Stamp the sentiment using Mermaid Lagoon DI and cut out.  Cut a piece of white card slightly larger and blend ink around the edges.  Mat the sentiment on to the larger card with glue.

Mat the distressed diamonds onto the blended ink card.

Add Glossy Accents to every diamond.

This is the effect you will end up with - looks really good on the distressed diamonds!

When you have adhered everything to the card this is what you will end up with.

I hope you enjoyed todays tutorial and that you'll think of giving this card a go.  If you have any comments then please do get in touch.

Until next time
Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Emily DT - Poppy Border

Hi everyone,

I hope you're all having a nice week. This week I have made a beautifully simple card, which takes no time at all to make.
Here it is...

I started by cutting a square of card the size I wanted. I inked my poppy border stamp using Distress Inks. I used my mini inks which meant I could use it like a pen to colour the parts I wanted each colour. You could also do this using Distress pens or something similar. I spritzed it with water to make sure the ink was wet and stamped it down one side of my card.

I stamped a sentiment in the top left corner and finished it by mounting it onto black card.

This card took literally a few minutes to make and I think it is so effective. I love how it turned out and I hope you do too! 

See you next week

Marleen DT - Time flies

Time flies...
In more ways then one..

Hey Bloggers and welcome..
Im late with todays post.. I got the chance to meet up with a friend today, havent seen her in a long time so I grabbed the chance and forgot all about my blog post for BeeCrafty...

I had a youtube planned but being forgetful today, means it will have to wait lol.. So Thank god, I have a spare project lying.. And very fitting for today lol..

 I made this one when I was working on the samples for Sam's upcoming show on Hochanda. I made a sample on black card with the same sparkly embossing powder. I loved the combo and wanted to do it again. So that is how this card came about.

I used several stamps here, ill make a list below, but all ive done is stamping with versamark and heat embossed with black glitter embossing powder. I then took a white sharpie and coloured in. The lines on the card as well as my greeting is stamped with a white inkpad.. I finished with faux stitching, also made with my white sharpie and a black mat before mounting onto my card.

Very simple card, but its far more sparkly in real life then it shows on the picture.

Stamps Ive used:
The flower corners are an older set also from BeeCrafty.

 Thanks for popping by and for any comments left behind.
