Dreams Come True - Bee Crafty DT Make

Hiya and welcome to my Friday post for Bee Crafty which is now my weekly posting day on the
Bee Crafty Blog
This week I got inky and messy with a load of my fave Bee Crafty stamps along with distress inks and embossing powder it was a lot of fun

The Bee Crafty stamps I have used are...
I trimmed a piece of gold Mirror Board to a few mm smaller than my 8x8 cardblank - I measure up against the card and make with a pencil at the length and width I like by eye then trim using a guilotine. I then did the same using a piece of patterned cardstock. I embossed the cardstock using a Burlap embossing folder and my die-cutting machine. Inked the edges of the cardstock using 'Frayed Burlap' Distress Ink and a mini round inking tool I also edged the cardstock with a dark brown alcohol marker
I fixed the gold Mirror Board to the cardblank using a strong glue and then fixed the embossed panel onto the card front using narrow foam tape

Next I trimmed a piece of watecolour card to about a cm smaller than the embossed panel all the way around then chose my inks and stamps to use
I stamped the 'Bubble Wrap' stamp using versamark ink, tipped clear embossing powder over, tapped off excess then heated with a heat gun leaving a glossy image on the card. I randomly stamped the 'Script', 'Maple' leaves 'Cow Parsley' and 'Branches' stamps around the edges and working in towards the centre with distress inks 'Tattered Rose', 'Victorian Velvet', 'Frayed Burlap' and 'Pumice Stone' - I wiped over the bubble wrap areas to reveal the uninked embossed areas. I inked the edges using 'Tattered Rose' and 'Frayed Burlap' inks I edged the card using a dark brown alcohol marker to match the other layer. Once dry I fixed the watercolour card panel to the card front

I was going to use one of the Fashionista's but after seeing how the background came out I thought it would be a shame to cover most of it - so I opted for a lovely sentiment instead I stamped the sentiment using brown ink and then using the Branches, Cow Parsley and Script stamps and similar random stamping as the background piece, inked edges and the matted onto gold Mirror Board. I fixed this topper I created to the cardfront using narrow foam tape

I really like how this one turned out and was a nice boost to my mucking crafting Mojo

Mayleedee Riding Hood - Paperbabe

Hiya and welcome to my Blog today I am sharing with you a make for the Paperbabe Stamps Challenge - I was unwell when the challenge begun so this is a reminder post to promote the challenge for my Teamies

The challenge is a Picture Inspiration - I have chosen my colours to match those in the picture below

Such gorgeously warm colours I really like them together

I chose to use 'Mayleedee Little Red' and I coloured her using Copic Markers and 2 Promarkers

Hair: E49, E29. E39
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
Blush: R20
Lips: E04
Hood/Cloak & Eyes: Twilight Sky & Polar Blue promarkers
Apron: C2, C1, C0, 0
Dress & Basket: Y26, Y23
Boots: E49, E39
Laces: N9

I have stamped and inked around the edges using a few stamps from Paperbabe Sets... Baubles from 'Bottle Brush Trees', Bubbles & Peonie from 'Oriental Zen' - using Distress Inks 'Weathered Wood', 'Scattered Straw' and 'Antique Linen'

The cream panel in background I have used the same stamps but also the large spray from 'Spritz & Speckles' using just the 'Scattered Straw' and 'Antique Linen' inks. I also used Versamark embossing ink and Ranger 'Seafoam White' embossing powder to add texture

The Teal panel on the cardfront is teal Coredinations cardstock and a swirl embossing folder from Docrafts which I then sanded back to show the paler teal core

I matt & layered using Brown mirror board and wrapped a brown organza ribbon around the blue layer and cardblank before layering up the the other panels at jaunty angles.

I chose co-ordinating paper flowers and a resin flower and layer these up at the corners of the image

The sentiment stamp is from the 'Mayleedee Little Red' set

BEAUtanicals - 'Dandelion' - Bee Crafty

Hiya and welcome to my Tuesday post for Bee Crafty 
For my card today I have used a mixture of my favourite Bee Crafty polymer stamps

I stamped the Script stamp over the background using 'Pumice Stone' distress ink, then the Bubble Wrap stamp into the corners using 'Walnut Stain' distress ink.
Using 'Spun Sugar' distress ink using one of the small round blending tool in circular motions darker into the corners and lighter around the sides, then using a piece of blending sponge i inked the edges using 'Walnut Stain' distress ink.
I stamped the Bubble Wrap again using White chalky paint 

I stamped the Dandelion using 'Black Soot' distress ink, then stamped just the blown away seeds randomly around the outside of the card. Using 'Black Soot' again I stamped the Being Happy sentiment near the corner.

I have used some Pink textured cardstock and some Mink mirror board from my stash for the layers and before i fixed the stamped section I inked over all the edges of the layers and card blank using 'Spun Sugar' distress ink.

Thank you for visiting today please do visit again soon to see more Bee Crafty makes from the team

'Vera' - Dreams Come True - Bee Crafty Stamps

Hiya and welcome to my Tuesday post for Bee Crafty (sorry I was not here last week I was poorly - but much better now) 
Today I'm sharing with you a card I made using 'Vera' from the FASHIONettes and  'Dreams Come True' from WORDage

I stamped Vera using grey ink for a lighter lined image and coloured her using my Copic Markers
Hair: E29, E37, E35, E49
Skin: E04, E13, E11, E21, E00, E000
Dress: R35, R32, R22, R20
Jewellery: R35, R32
Sash, Eyes & Spots: YG67, YG63, YG61
Shoes: W8

Ive created some layers using brown mirror board, floral cardstock backing paper & pink mulberry paper. On the edges/corners  have used Walnut Stain distress ink with blending tool and the curl from the end of the 'Holly Swirl' Yuletide stamp - I love how this stamp can be used everyday without it being obviously christmas - I love swirls around edges and corners

I chose flowers in shades of peach to complement and frame the image and the flowers from the backing panel adding foliage with Diecut Swirls and Punched Leaves x
The sentiment is one of my faves 'Dreams Com True' WORDage
Thank you for visiting the Blog today and I hope you will visit again soon to see the gorgeous makes by the talented Design Team
