Christmas Star - for Bee Crafty Polymer Stamps

Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty

Today I am sharing with you one of my Christmas makes using some of the gorgeous 'Yuletide' stamps that were on a recent show on Hochanda

I chose a 7x7inch cardblank and trimmed a piece of white cardstock to a few mm smaller using the cardblank and a pencil to mark the size and then trimmed using a guilotine. I also cut another piece of white cardstock to 6x6inch. 

On the large piece I stamped the larger 'Holly Border' from the 'Yuletide Set - Holly Swirl, Tree & Borders' around the edge first in clear embossing ink which I then heat embossed with clear embossing powder and a heat gun, then using Stormy Sky distress ink. Once dry I thnem inked over the edges using Tumbled Glass and Black Soot distress inks.

On the 6x6inch piece of white card I fixed the 6inch Inkables Template '6inch Star' using low-tack tape and inked through it using Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Stormy Sky distress inks starting with the lightest. I then stamped the 'Happy Christmas' Yuletide - Wordage stamp using black archival ink. I stamped ariund the edges using the smaller 'Holly Border' (from the Yuletide Set again) firstly using Tumbled Glass and then using Black Soot distress inks. I then ran a foam pad that had been used with Black Soot ink accross the edges.

I matted both pieces of white cardstock using Navy Blue pearlescent cardstock. I fixed the larger panel to the front of the 7x7 inch card blank using all purpose glue. I fixed the 6x6 panel to the card front using foam tape for depth. I finished the card with some flat back clear gems.

FASHIONette's 'Shirley' - Decision to Try - for Bee Crafty

Hiya and Welcome to my Post for Bee Crafty 

I have Hijacked the Thursday Spot this week and I am sharing a FASHIONettes make today - I love love love these gorgeous girls so much

I stamped 'Shirley' using light grey ink and coloured her using my favourite Alcohol Markers. I then used Glossy Accents for her glasses to create the look of glass

I created the backinp paper myself using the flourish part of the 'Fabulous Flowers - Bouquet' with some clear embossing ink and white embossing powder which I heat embossed - these flourishes then were raised and worked as a relief when I inked through a handmade stencil I made using a metal die and a scrap of cardstock. I used 'Seedless Preserves' and 'Milled Lavender' distress inks to ink through the handmade stencil. I matted this backing paper panel using Mink and Brown pearlescent cardstocks.

I trimmed round 'Shirley', inked the edges using Milled Lavender distress ink and matted onto the off cuts of the Mink and Brown cardstock from before. I fixed this to the cardfront using foam tape.

Next I die-cut lots of different size flowers from the same set of metal dies I used for the background which I then stamped the 'Fabulous Flowers - Star Flowers' onto all but the largest size die-cut flowers using embossing ink, which I then tipped gold embossing powder onto and heated them using my heat tool. On the largest die-cut flowers I first inked the same flourish I used on the background in Milled Lavender ink and then over that with clear embossing ink and powder. I inked the edges of the largest flowers using Milled Lavender and then all the other flowers using Seedless Preserves. One dry I used a large ball tool to shape the flowers from the backs, then pushed the centres back on the fronts to make them pop out.

next I die-cut some flourishes and then layered them up with the flowers at oposite corners of the Image topper. I added some brown flat back pearls to the centres of the flowers.

To finish the card I stamped the 'Decision to Try - WORDage' sentiment onto white cardstock and then cut out all the idividual pieces which I then matted with offcuts of brown cardstock and fixed to the cradfront all scattered out, using foam pads.

Thank you so much for visiting my Post today. I will be back in my usual Monday Spot next week. Please visit the Bee Crafty Blog soon to see more gorgeous makes by the Brilliant Design Team

Hiya this week over at Paperbabe Stamps we are having a 'Picture Inspiration' Challenge.
Your make should be inspired by the picture below. You can use the colours, the shapes or the theme but as long as your make is inspired by the picture then pretty much anything goes

The prize for the challenge is amazing but even more so if you use a Paperbabe Product in your entry project. So please do go and check out the Paperbabe Blog to see all the details - we would love to see all your gorgeous makes

For my make I have used some of the Mixed Media MDF Substrates - the Whimsical Woodland set and the Ornate Frame Oval kit painted first with gesso and then with chalky paints and gold acryllic paint to create her mini hanging plaque.

Which will now be pride of place on my wall in 'Kerrie's Kraft Korner'.

I also stamped the details using a mixture of coloured inks aswell as the matching stamps from the 'Whimsical Woodland Owl' and the 'Whimisical Woodland Butterfly' sets.

Merry & Bright - Paperbabe Stamps

Hiya and Welcome to my Blog... today I am sharing with you a Christmas Card I have made as part of my early prep for the Festive Season 

It is also as a Challenge Reminder for the Current Paperbabe Challenge - please visit the Challenge Post to see all the details of the Anything Goes Challenge where the prize is amazing so I do hope you will enter... you dont have to use a Paperbabe Product to enter but the prize is even better if you do

For the background I used some Snowflake stamps all from Paperbabe Stamp Sets

The Christmas sets I picked the Snowflakes from are:

Mayleedee Frost Fairy
Bottle Brush Trees
Sparkle Bright sentiment set

I stamped them randomly over a piece of white stamping card using clear embossing ink and embossing powder for 2 of the snowflakes then heating with a heat tool - this then keeps those snowflakes raised and masked from any ink.

Next I sprayed some distress stain spray in cracked pistashio, once dry I filled any gaps using tumbled glass distress ink and an inking sponge tool. I then inked the edges using broken china distress ink bringing the ink towards the middle, the very edge I inked using stormy sky distress ink. This lovely background looks really nice in the shades chosed but would work just as well in any shades of colours even pinks and purples

I then stamped another 2 Snowflakes using Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass - I matted this panel I created using blue mirror board and fixed the front of a 6x6 card blank

I stamped the larger Sentiment stamps from Sparkle Bright using Stormy Sky distress ink lightly embossed with clear embossing powder, the the '&' and smaller words using london fog memento ink. I trimmed the sentiment matted on blue mirror board and fixed to the card front using foam tape. I then chose some pretty embellishments in co-ordinating colours to fix at opposite corners of the sentiment using my hot glue gun

I added some flat backed gems to finish

Thank You so much for visiting my Blog today - i would love for you to leave a comment so I know you have been so I can return the love - more projects from me soon so please come back again soon

Christmas in August - with Bee Crafty Stamps

Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty

Now that my Children's Birthday's are done its my tradition to begin my prep for Christmas which includes beginning my shopping plans for their gifts but also the start of my Christmas Cards so today I am sharing one of these new makes for the Festive Season...

I have used some of the Bee Crafty Stamps from the 'Yuletide' Collection

I created a background using the 'Yuletide' - Snowflakes' set along with light and dark blue chalk inks for some of the flakes and then clear embossing ink with a mixture of blue, silver pearl and tinsel white embossing powders which I then heated using a heat toolto create some texture, shine and sparkle.

I then stamped the 'Yuletide' - Believe' large sentiment using blue chalky ink which I sprinkled a little of the tinsel white embossing powder over. I trimmed the seniment, inked the edges by running a clear embossing ink pad accross them, I then dipped into tinsel while embossing powder to add sparkle. I matted the sentiment onto blue cardstock.

To finish my card I matted the background I created onto the same blue cardstock as the sentiment and attached this to a 7x7 card blank. I fixed the Sentiment to the card front using foam tape at a jaunty angle.

Next I repeat stamped the Snowflakes onto offcuts of cardstock in the same inks as before adding ebossing powders including some clear this time for the darker blue. I fussy cut them, used an embossing tool on the reverse of them to create dimention. I then arranged them at the corners of the sentiment layering them up a bit and adding gems to the centres. I added some extra gems to opposite corners of the card to finish
