MDF Tag - Yuletide Snowflakes - for Bee Crafty

Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty

Yes!!!! more Christmas Makes! - I adore Christmas and all the sparkle and fun so I always make a start on Christmas makes during the Summer Holidays and then continute all through Autumn and right up until the Big Day!! love love love

Over the Weekend 'Our Bev' was over at Alexandra Palace for the Stamping & Scrapbooking Show with her massive stand full of Bee Crafty Goodies loads of Stamps and Yumminess including... Brand New MDF loads of it which was a Big Hit and sold out!!!!

I so wish I could have gone this year but unfortunately my Hubby was working (darn!! I cant drive so I lucked out) 

This Week I have created a Christmassy Tag using one of the Lush MDF Tags! Love!!!!

I had a lot of fun creating this tag with loads of Bee Crafty Lushness!!

The products I used that you can get from the lovely Bee Crafty online shop are...

Bee Crafty - Yuletide Snowflakes - Stamp Set
Bee Crafty - Dots - Inkables Template 
Bee Crafty - Inspired by DaVinci Script - Stamp
Colourcraft - Brusho's - sea green, ost blue, ultramarine & turquoise

I also used White Gesso, and Embossing Powders (opaque white, sparkling snow & chunky silver) from my own crafty stash

First I painted over the whole tag using white gesso, once dry I then sprayed the front using a water spritzer and then tapped the Brusho's over the whole tag removing the excess water with kitchen roll. I then dabbed white gesso through the Inkables Template using a dry stencil brush over one corner. I random stamped the Script Stamp using white ink over the opposite corner. Once dry I then stamped the 2 Snowflakes repeatedly over around the edges of the tag using a clear embossing ink, then used the 3 different embossing powders alternately and heating with my Heat Tool

(I have pierced holes in the tops of my Brusho's so i can use them like salt shakers)

I love how the Sparkling Snow embossing Powder looks on the snowflakes


I ran the clear embossing ink over the tag edges and dipped into the chunky silver embossing powder, which once heated made the edges look like metal


I really love how this tag has turned out - I also love how the colours worked - I am a bit obsessed with blue toned christmas makes this year

I used lots of layers of cardstock and a cute spooky coffin shape (I pinched this from some doll packaging from one of my Daughters Birthday Pressies) 

 
I added some sparkle to his Wings using a sakura stardust pen and then finished the card with some sparkly flat back gems

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.

Thank You so much for visiting today - please come back to my Blog again soon for more makes from me

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.

Thank you so much for visiting my Blog today please leave a comment so I know you have been and visit again soon for more makes from me
