BeeCrafty Inspiration

Hello Blogger friends 
 and welcome to my blog.

Its my turn to share a bit of inspiration for BeeCrafty.
I have a couple of journal pages to share today.

This page is made using alcohol inks on top of vellum. You add a drop or 2 of alcohol ink and blow on it with a straw. It gives a cool effect and was really fun making.
I then took my vellum and stuck on to one of the pages from the BeeCrafty Journal. I stamped and heat embossed in black and added a few black paint splashes to finish.

This was my second attempt with the alcohol ink. Although I didnt stamp onto it, I wanted to share it. This page is also stuck into my journal.

 This one is one of the half pages. Its distress ink and more distress ink through the dinkable stencil. I then stamped and heat embossed in white and finished by making the little white dots around the edges with a white marker.

Goodies I used:

Journal
Selection of Banksy Inspired stamps
(Im linking to the whole section as there are so many amazing ones)
Feather Dinkable Stencil
(again linking to the whole section, not to be missed)
Distress ink
Embossing powder
White marker
Alcohol ink

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

Graciellie Design Inspiration Blog Hop

Hey Bloggers

Its time for the 2nd "New Release" Blog Hop over on
Graciellie Design.
Pop over to the BLOG to start the hop

This month we are using the new release of  digital stamps and papers called Magnolia Dreams. Pop over in the STORE to see all the amazing designs from Graciellie. Gracielle has also teamed with Paper Temptress and released a matching paper pack.

Here is what I have made for this hop.
For this card I started by printing my background sheet. That way had it ready to colour matching for the next step. I then transferred my magnolia flower in to "WORD". (I simply copy and paste). I resized it and copied and pasted that flower 10 times, then printed. I printed onto water colour card stock (140g) as I used my ZIG markers to colour.

As I said, I printed the flower 10 times. This was because I cut out the middle section on 5 of them and used them to decoupage the remaining 5. It gives the flowers so much more dimention on the card.
Once I finished colouring I went over all the flowers with a wink of stella shimmer pen.

Once my flowers was done it was time to print my sentiment. I had the size of my card measured out on a piece of copy paper so when I printed I could see the size of the sentiment versus the card. It took me a few tries to get the size just how I wanted but it was worth it.

And then it was just a matter of popping it all together. A bit of distress ink around the edges of the sentiment and a bit of faux stitching.







 If you are taking part in the blog hop, you now have to pop over to Milagros
If you only just popped on to my blog but want to join the hop, pop back to Graciellie Design.

  And that is all from me today. Thank you for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Graciellie Design - New release Bloghop and Exciting news..

Hello Blogger friends..

Well will you know... Remember that guest spot I did for Graciellie Design in June?? Well a DT call came up at the end of June and I decided to apply.. And I got Lucky and GOT IT...

So today I'm sharing my first post as part of the Design Team..
As always we are sharing the new releases in a blog hop and by god they are amazing.

I have used the new "Magnolia Dreams" digital stampset and the "Magnolia Dreams" digital papers. You can find them and all the other amazing artwork in the Graciellie Design Etzy STORE.

 

Here is what I have made for this bloghop:

 


 I just love these papers and this image. I started by printing my papers, my flower and my sentiment. I use word for all my printing and I just copy and paste images and papers strait into word and I can re-size all I want.
I printed my flower onto water colour card stock but my papers and sentiment onto smooth white card stock.
Once printed, its best to leave your prints to dry for a bit, especially when colouring in. I tend to print in the evening and work with the prints the next day.

My flower is decoupaged and coloured with Zig clean Colour Real water colour markers and I added a bit of sparkle with a shimmer marker. I used a little bit of distress ink around the edges of the papers but other then that nothing.. Nothing at all.. These designs are so beautiful, they can carry themselves.

Right BLOGHOP..
Pop over to Graciellie Design where everything will be explained but simply hop from blog to blog, remebering to leave a comment on each blog.
Im the last in line so if you have landed her you should already have visited everyone else..
If you visited "only" to see my project, thank you, but DO jump back to Graciellie Design as this blog hop is very special, but as I said, all is revealed over on the Graciellie Design blog..

Here is the list for the blog hop

And that is all from me today. Thanks for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Anyway.. I want to share woth you a few pages Ive done for my BeeCrafty Journal.
You might have seen the BeeCrafty show on Hochanda a while back where Sam introdused the Journals. The quality is amazing and I love how I can add and take away pages at will.

Here is a few pages Ive done:

 I used one of the Kraft card Pages for this page but gave it a coat of Lustre Luxe in gold.
The splatters on top was made with alcohol ink and a straw. My greeting is stamped and heat embossed with black embossing powder, as are my brackets. I used the border stamps all the way around. Pic is of my "puppy" Hodgins.

This one is simply a play of Lustre Luxe on one of the half pages. I used Lustre Luxe through the kindness stencil and just added more Lustre Luxe of the page once word was dry.

Now, List of goodies Ive used for these pages:

BeeCrafty Inspiration - MDF Tags

Hey Bloggers..

Well I am officially on holiday all of July as my children are all off school and its time for some quality time, meaning I dont make any projects for my design teams in this month. But but but... I decided to schedule a few posts with a few projects I had lying..

So for this weeks post for BeeCrafty I wanna share a couple of MDF tags.
Both tags was made for past Hochanda shows, but neither was dry and ready to send by my deadline so was left behind..

 This one was made with poly filler. Its a grit one that I got in the £shop and I love using it. I added a thick layer strait to the tag and then took my stencil and pressed into it. Once dry I added lots of guilding wax and distress inks. My girl is also a BeeCrafty stamp and she was stamped, coloured with water colours and fuzzy cut before added to my tag.

 This one here is using the same stencil as above. I used texture paste through the stencil and once dry I added lots of Distress crayon. I love how this one turned out, but honestly would know what to do with it lol

Anyway, here are the goodies Ive used:


And that is all from me today. Thanks for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Guest spot for Teddy Bo & Co.

Hey bloggers..

Exciting exciting.. I was chosen to do a guest spot for Teddy Bo & Co..
If you have ever used digital stamps, I bet you have heard of Teddy Bo. I've been a huge fan for years, but due to lack of time, I had stopped colouring in. But then I saw the call for a guest spot and thought Id give it a go. Never thought I would be so lucky to get it but lo and behold, I was lucky..

I was given a selection of digi stamps and agreed to do 3 cards. 
Here is what I made:


 All images have been rescaled and printed from "Word"onto "Elegance Satin" card stock from Joanna Sheen. All has been coloured with Promarkers and all backgrounds made with chalk and set with cheap hairspray.

And that is all from me today. Thanks for popping by and for any comments left behind.

Graciellie Design - Inspiration (Coffee Loving Cardmakers bloghop)

Hey Guys..

If you have followed my blog this month, you will know I have been invited to be on the June guest DT for
Graciellie Design.

I have already posted my 3 project, but the team was asked if we would like to create an extra project this month using the amazing image called "Cup of Tea" and being me.. ohh I DO so love my tea, so I couldnt say no lol..

Graciellie Design is taking part in a blog hop this month over on Coffee Loving Cardmakers. We, the Graciellie DT is not part of the hop but Graciellie Design is and have massive prizes up on offer so us DT was asked if we wanted to make some supporting projects and help spread the word of the hop.


Here is what I have made:

 
 
I printed the tea cup image (twice) using word so I could resize it. I printed, coloured (I used Zig clean color real brushes) and cut out.
I then used my coloured image as a template and made another tea cup from white card stock and cut it out. I now have 2 teacups the same size, but one is white, the other my coloured image. See images below on how I stuck the 2 sides together.

Now my second image I printed.. I coloured the rose head and fuzzy cut it. I then added it on top of the rose head on my card and finished with a bit of shimmer pen over.
My sentiment I also printed but desided to add it more as a price tag to the handle of the cup, that way it wont cover the rose.

I made a little tab out of white card stock to add the 2 cups together.
 In order to open the card, I had to cut a wee bit of the white cup. This way the coloured cup will just pop around the back of the white cup when you open.






 Now this project.. Well long story short.. Printing in the wrong size = too many printouts for 1 card.
As I had them printed after making my original card above, I thought I might as well play with this as well. I coloured with Zig Clean colour real brush markers and all I added was shimmer over the rose.
The background is made by simply copy and pasting my sentiment MANY times till I had a full sheet covered. I printed and cut to size, added a bit of distress ink and Voila... Very simple card.

 
 Now I HAD to share this creation.. No its not mine lol.. This is my test print I did on copy paper.. My 6 year old Abbie, asked if she could have it and colour it in. I couldnt say no. And she was so proud of it I had to promise to show it off. I think she did a great job.

 
Now last pic.. This was really a mistake..Well I coloured the whole image in but I went to add glossy accent over the whole image and it screwed up the tea cup itself.. The rose came out well, so I cut the rose out and now have it for another project.

nd that is all from me today. Thanks for popping by and for any comments left behind.
