Jane DT - Butterfly Journey: An Art Journal Page


I am back on the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty Blog today with some more art journaling, this time in my little journal that I decorated the cover of...

I have been wanting to create some pages with a bit more white space so first I stamped the positive bark backdrop in a triangle shape on each side using black archival ink.
Then I used spray inks and some water to create the colour. I started with my lightest shade then built up the colours, tipping the pages and dabbing with kitchen roll to get the effect I wanted.
Using some purple archival ink and the XL script backdrop I added some more stamping...

Next I spritzed some of the darkest purple ink onto my glass mat and used my finger to add it through the circle d'inkable.  I then used a purple watercolour pencil and a white pen to add detail to my circles...

Using the same inks I sprayed a piece of card and then stamped out some butterflies from the bird and butterfly set.  These were then cut out and after sticking them down on the page I added some dark pen around the edges...

I stamped out the word border 1 and cut out the words I wanted to use, these were then also stuck down and highlighted with a dark pen.  Finally I added some extra darkness to the edge of the pages using a purple gelato and also some glitter glue in areas, although it is a bit tricky to see in the photos!

Here are the products I used...

* Backdrops - Bark Positive
* Backdrops - XL Script
* Art Stamps - Words Border 1
* Art Stamps - Birds and Butterflies Set 1
* D'Inkables - Circle

Thank you for reading and happy crafting,

Emily DT - Beautiful Backgrounds

Hi everyone,

This week I have made a couple of cards using the same background sheet,

Here are the cards I have made...

I started with an A4 piece of white card. I coloured it using Distress Oxide inks and then added layers of colour using inkables. I stuck to four colours of ink then added highlights in white ink. 

When I was happy with it, I cut it into a few pieces to turn into cards. Here are the results;

I hope you like them!

Marleen DT - Lustre Luxe cards..

Hello Bloggers

Once again my turn to share a bit of inspiration for

For today I have been playing with my Lustre Luxe. They are a constant fixture on my crafty table along side my inks. They are so versatile. They can be used for so many things. For today I have used them on 2 cards. I used them with the Easy Frames Inkable stencils. I love these basic shapes.

Both cards has been made the same way.

My backgrounds has been made by simply adding my stencil and adding lustre luxe through. I left each shape to dry for a few seconds before adding the next but Lustre Luxe drys very fast so it wasnt a problem.

I added my sentiments to a strip of black card stock and heatset it with silver embossing powder. I finished by matting and layering on black cardstock and a few gems on each and Voila..

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

Charlee DT - Lustre Luxe Background

Morning crafters. Hope you've all had a good week. This week I decided to get the lustres out to play. They're just so versatile. Our Marleen from the DT has a made youtube video with different things you can do with them. You can find it Here

What you'll need:

 All you need to do to create this card is blend the ocean blue all over the card and also on a small scrap piece of card. Leave about a minute or so to completely dry. Place the inkable and using different pressure blend through with the moonstone. I used different pressure to get different texture. Repeat on the small scrap piece. Take the card and matt onto some black card and adhere onto the card blank. On the scrap piece, ink up the stamp with archival and stamp. If some places missed you can either restamp or go over with a black permanent pen. Then matt that with some black card and put on the card with a little bit of foam tape.

I just love the shimmer the lustres give you. They're unlike anything I have worked with before. Definitely a must have for your craft stash and they're sooo reasonably priced. You don't have to break the bank with them.

Don't forget to show us your crafty makes using the lustres in the bee crafty stamps facebook group.

Until next week

Lorre-Anne DT - Silhouette samples for Hochanda

Hi bloggers, for my blog post this week I'm sharing the samples I made for Bevs recent Bee Crafty shows on stunning are these new stamps!!! I absolutely love them, and had such fun making my cards.


I created my background using Spiced Marmalade & Frayed Burlap Distress Oxides, then simply stamped the tree and animals using Versafine ink.  I finished by adding some shadow under the animals feet, and a sentiment.

I made my background by adding some Salty Ocean & Chipped Sapphire Distress inks to an acrylic block, I then spritzed this with water and placed it on to the centre of a square of white card.  I left this in place for a few mins then removed the block and dried using my heat tool.  I stamped the tree using Versafine ink, and finished by adding some ribbon, and a stamped sentiment.

This was such a simple card to make... I blended some Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide through the circle template, stamped the tree using Versafine then simply matted and layered up.  Using black card as my mat layers really makes the image pop!

I stamped the elephant over a square of white card using Hickory Smoke Distress Ink, then matted this on to some rainbow mirri card.  I finished by adding a stamped sentiment.

I created this background by first blending Salty Ocean, Mustard Seed & Picked Raspberry Distress Inks over a piece of white card.  Once I'd done this I then blended Black Soot Distress Inks over the top of the entire card, darker at the edges and over some places, and leaving other places lighter to give a look of the Northern Lights.  I finished by stamping the tree using Versafine, and adding my sentiment.

I created the background by blending some Salty Ocean & Peacock Feathers Distress Oxides over a square of white card.  I then took the Drops Dinkable and used a baby wipe to randomly blot over the card.  I stamped the birds using Salty Ocean Oxide, then stamped the pylons using Versafine ink. I finished by adding my sentiment, then matting on to black card.

I created the background by stamping the branches of the tree using Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide, then blending some Frayed Burlap around the edges.  I next stamped the sentiment in the centre of a die cut circle, then stamped the birds in Cracked Pistachio & Faded Jeans, again blending some Frayed Burlap around the edges.  

That's it for today peeps, I'll be back soon with another project to share with you.  

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Jane DT - Silhouette Samples


I hope you were able to tune in for the first Bee Crafty show of the year this week and I thought that today I would post my DT samples for my Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog post.

All of the samples use the new silhouette trees, safari animal and horses, as well as the new larger everyday sentiments...

This square MDF art board had crackle paste and antiquing cream applied as well as acrylic paints before adding the stamping.

This tall art board was so quick to achieve!  I used dylusions paint straight onto the MDF (something I never usually do) then added some pattern with the circle stencil before stamping and heat embossing the tree with black powder.

This was my favourite card sample as it was so simple and elegant looking.  I wanted to show how just using one stamp could still be really effective.  I used black and a glittery copper embossing powder on pearl coated and black card.

I also wanted to show how scenes can be built up so used distress inks to create my background before adding the stamping. I used the torn edge of a piece of paper to add some darker green for the shadows.   I often like to create an easel card as they are so simple to make but add a slightly different look to your cards.

Another simple to create card but this time I wanted to emboss in a different colour.  The background was made using distress oxide inks, then the tree and lion simple stamped and embossed with gold.  I am also a big believer in layering up to create frames and went a bit more extravagant than usual with the number of layers for this one!

Finally a different sort of background this time using acrylic paints brayered onto card with a bit of stencilling using regular dots and sunset d'inkables.

Thank you for looking and the shows on HOCHANDA will be available on catch up for a couple of weeks if you missed them or need a refresher!

Happy crafting,

Jane xx
