Decision To Try - Canvas - for Bee Crafty Stamps

Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty Stamps

Today I am sharing with you a recent make for one of the Hochanda Shows that I have not Blogged about before... my Mixed Media Canvas

The Bee Crafty Products I used on this project are...



First I covered the canvas with white gesso, Once dry, I trimmed a piece of old music from a piano book and glued this to the canvas and then painted over again using white gesso. I made sure that the gesso was applied thinly so that the music notes could still be seen. Next I painted over with a coat of Magnolia Chalky Paint and left to dry fully.

On a piece of thin corrugated card I drew around the inside and outside of  the 6" Square Inkables Template which I then cut out to create a frame, I covered this frame using music score paper and then I used filler to seal in the corrugated edges and painted over a coat of white gesso. Once dry I painted over the frame again using Mink Chalky Paint and left to dry fully.

Once both pieces were fully dry I used a strong white glue to stick the frame to the canvas at a jaunty angle. I then used filler through the 4" Heart Inkables Template to place hearts inside and outside of the frame and around the canvas. I used a heat gun to speed up the drying process so that I could then paint the Hearts using Damson Chalky Paint.

Next I stamped the Style Wire Border around the edges of the frame, and the Lines & Dots Texture onto the canvas. I then stamped the Decission To Try WORDage onto white cardstock, which I then cut the scetions of the sentiment out, backed them with dark gold mirror board and attached to the canvas inside the frame using a hot glue gun spreading the words out over the space. I picked out some paper flowers, wooden buttons and metal embellishments (one being a little Bee for Bee Crafty... just cause I can) I fixed them into opposite corners of the frame using a hot glue gun.

To seal and varnish the project I painted over everything using Mod Podge.

Christmas Fete Makes - with Bee Crafty Stamps

Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty

During the last week I was busy getting ready for Our School's Christmas Fete and I had a lot of fun getting inky with some of my Bee Crafty Yuletide Stamps and Distress Inks

I am sharing with you a sample of the cards that I made for the Fete...


For all the cards above I used some of the Gorgeous SnowFlake Stamps from the Yuletide Collection sets 'Snowflakes - Feathery', 'Snowflakes - Spikey' and 'Snowflakes'. For blue tone cards I used 'Stormy Sky', 'Broken China', 'Faded Jeans' & 'Tumbled Glass' distress inks. For the purple tone cards I used 'Seedless Preserves', 'Milled Lavendar' & 'Dusty Concord' distress inks

These cards were simple and quick to make but I really love how they turned out.

For all the cards I used the 6inch Circle Inkables Template (the inner part) which I used lowtack tape underneath to prevent slipping while inking onto smooth cardstock. I inked up the stamps and stamped randomly over the card and off of the circle template to fill up the background. Once dry I then inked the edges of the card and off the edge of the circle template to soften the backgrounds. I stamped the 'Merry Christmas' sentiment from the Yuletide Wordage collection using black archival ink into the centre of each card. I finished them using colour matching flat back gems.

The Fete went really well... I made back the stall charge and a little profit on top which for my first Fete in a long time wasn't too bad at all. 

Thank You so much for visiting today to see my examples. Please visit the Bee Crafty Blog soon to see more gorgeous work from the Bee Crafty Design Team

Happy Halloween - Spooklicious Tag - for Bee Crafty Stamps

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! 
 and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty

I love Halloween so much and will be spending the evening with my two youngest children and my Hubby making Jack-o-Lantern's and watching Hocus Pocus!! 

I hope you all enjoy your Halloween - Stay Safe! 

Today I am sharing with you a Halloween Tag I have made using some of the Gorgeous 'All Hallows' stamps and the 'Spellbound Abi' stamp which I love


I stamped the 'All Hallows -Spiderweb' stamp over the large tag using light grey ink and then inked the edges using 'Spiced Marmalade' distress ink and then 'Black Soot' distress ink just at the edge.

I cut a piece of black pearlescent cardstock to a few mm smaller than the tag, rounded the corners with a puch and glued to the front of the tag. I found an offcut of Halloween craft paper in my box and trimmed this to fit the side of the black card.

I stamped the 'All Hallows - Spooky Scene' onto white card using black ink, I fussy cut the tombstones and bats then inked over using 'Peeled Paint' distress ink. I attached the scene across the bottom of the tag using a hotglue gun and saved the bats for later.

I stamped 'Spellbound Abi' onto white card and coloured her using my pencils in colours to match the tag so far. I then stamped the edges using the 'All Hallows - Spiderweb' using black ink, I then lightly inked the edges using spiced marmalade, peeled paint and black soot distress inks. I matted the image onto black cardstock and fixed to the tag using foam tape. I then attached the bats from earlier using my hotglue gun.

To finish I added the sentiment using the 'Spookylicious' word from the 'Spellbound Abbie' stamp set

I hope you like my post today, I really enjoyed making the Tag it was a lot of fun
