Love and Chocolate - Black & White - for Bee Crafty Stamps


Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty Stamps

Bee Crafty Products used:

Wordage - 'All You Need is Love' - polymer stamp
Fabulous Flowers - Star Flowers - polymer stamp set
Beautanicals - Branches - polymer stamp set

I hope you are all having a lovely Easter with your families & friends - I was inspired but Easter Chocolate for this make but went with a Black & White, Classic look instead of the traditional bunnies and eggs for Easter


Firstly I crocheted some white flowers and stitched through some buttons using white yarn. Then I repeat stamped the Star Flowers and larger Branch onto white cardstock using black versafine ink. I then spent some time fussy cutting them out


I then trimmed a piece of black card to 1/2 cm smaller than my 7x7 card blank. Then I trimmed a piece of white cardstock to 1/2 cm smaller than the black piece. I ran some black card stock through my embossing machine using a burlap embossing folder and cut a strip of this to fit the width of my card. I layer the black and white card pieces onto the card blank using strong glue, I stamped the Love and Chocolate sentiment onto the top corner and mounted the black embossed strip to the card front using foam tape.



I then arranged the Branches, Crocheted Flowers and Star flowers and when i was happy with how they looked I fixed them down using my hot glue gun


I then fixed some gems using glossy accents to the flower centres, and scattered some around


I love how this project turned out as I really love non-traditional themes and colours during the seasonal occasions through the year


I made 2 more slightly altering the layout each time

Simplicity - Beautanicals - Black & White - for Bee Crafty Stamps

Hiya and Welcome to my Monday Post for Bee Crafty Stamps

Today I wanted to share with you a make that is a Simplistic make from black and white cardstock
I love the Black & White look its simple but dramatic as well


Bee Crafty products used:

BEAUtanicals - Tall Elder - polymer stamp
WORDage - Simplicity is Sophistication - polymer stamp
Inkables - Oval Lace - Template


First I stamped the Tall Elder stamp onto a piece of Linen Card using Versafine Ink, I then trimmed this piece about 1cm around the edge of the image. I stamped the Simplicity is Sophistication stamp onto an off cut of white card. I matted both these pieces using black card.


I then took a piece of pearlescent white card and trimmed to 5mm smaller than a 6x6 card blank, I ran this card through my embossing machine using the Oval Lace template underneath it to create a raised pattern on the card


In this picture you can see the pretty shine from the pearlescent card and the pattern from the template shows well too

I matted the pearlescent backing I created with some black cardstock and stuck to the front of the card blank using a strong glue. I layered up the Tall Elder image and the sentiment using some foam tape. I finished the card with some jet black flat backed gems.

Beautiful Dream - Fashionette's Peggy - for Bee Crafty Stamps

Hiya and Welcome to my Blog

Phew, it's the Easter Holiday's... I love Holiday's as I get to spend more time with my lovely Kiddies. This Week our eldest Daughter Ashleigh turns 15!!! where does the time go?? I mean only yesterday I was cuddling my Beautiful Baby Girl in my arms and now she is all grown up

Now back to my post lol... I have been playing with my Copic Markers and Distress Inks this weekend I love love love them but for a bit of a change I have been inspired to use green's and blue's by my lovely friend Tina who sent me a gorgeous Tag with those colour's not so long ago

Today's Make is using some of the Gorgeous stamps from Bee Crafty Stamps


Bee Crafty Products used in this project:

Fabulous Floral - Star Flower - polymer stamp

Other Products used:

Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters
Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black
Versafine Ink - Black
Versamark embossing clear ink
Embossing Powder - Clear (with heat tool)
Die's - Florishes
Copic Markers - various colours

Black cardstock
Aqua mirror board
8x8 card blank
paper flowers
flat backed gems


I stamped the Script stamp over a piece of white linen cardstock (that I had trimmed to 1/2cm smaller than an 8x8 cardblank) using Versamark embossing ink, I then tapped some clear embossing powder over and heated with a heat gun to create a raised effect which will then work as a relief when inking over with distress inks, I chose 2 shades of both green and blue inks and blended them over the heat embossed background using foam blending tools. 

I then stamped the Clover stamp along the bottom edge of the card using Versafine ink which I gave a quick blast with the heat gun to speed up the drying time


Next I stamped Peggy onto colouring cardstock (a smooth type perfect for alcohol markers) and I coloured her using copic markers using 3 sets of colours which blend well together and nicely match the tones in the background I had created. I then fussy cut her out using a pair of small but sharp scissors. I then fixed her to the background using tacky glue. I also stamped and coloured the Dog and fixed him to the background too. I matted this picture with black cardstock and fixed to the card front using all purpose glue. 


I then die cut some flourishes using 3 metal dies and some cardstock I chose the same black from earlier and some aqua mirror board. Next I layered up some paper flowers and some foliage. I stamped, coloured and cut out some of the Star Flowers from the Floral stamp I shaped them using an embossing ball tool and layered them in with the paper flowers. All the flowers are attached using my hot glue gun. I finished off the card with some flat back gems for a touch of Bling.

For the sentiment I used the large Dream Wordage stamp with just the word Beautiful from the Wordage Beautiful Things stamp, which i stamped using black ink. I inked the edges and matted using black card and attached to the cardfront at a jaunty angle using foam tape.

I actually really like this card as I stuck to my favourite style of cardmaking but used colours that are usually very alien to me but I think really do work well together for this project.
