Imagine Design Create DT post - Christmas tag

Hi everyone, it’s Thursday which means I’m up on the Imagine Design Create blog sharing another DT project with you all… and this week I decided to make a simple little tag using my Oxide inks and the Snowflake Kisses stamp set.


Materials

What to do
  • Smoosh some of the Oxides on to a blending mat and spritz with water, drag the tag through this mix and dry with a heat tool, occasionally flicking water droplets and repeating until the desired result is achieved.
  • Stamp the snowflakes and sentiment using the various colours of Oxides, and blend some Worn Lipstick around the edges.
  • Finish by tying a ribbon through the top of the tag.



These tags could be created using any colours you wish, and would be ideal to pop on your Christmas presents this year.  I’ll be back next week to share another project with you all, until then happy crafting!  Pop on over to the Imagine Design Create blog and have a look at some of the fabulous designs by my teammates.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x

Monday Bee Crafty DT post - Wizard Of Oz samples

Hi everyone, it's Monday which means I'm back up on the Bee Crafty blog - and today I'm sharing the samples I made for Bev's recent shows on Hochanda.  I absolutely loved playing with these stamps as the Wizard of Oz is one of my all time favourite films!  

Materials 



Background created using the Skyline Inkable, Brick wall and Sunburst Dinkables.  Dorothy & Tinman coloured using Kuretake pens.


Background created using Brick Wall Dinkable.  Characters coloured using Kuretake pens.


Background created using Hearts Dinkable and Courage stamp.  Lion coloured using Kuretake pens.


MDF coloured with Moonstone Lustre Luxe, then Oz heat embossed using green embossing powder. I blended some Lucky Clover Oxide through the Hearts Dinkable, and finished by adding the Tinman and stamped sentiments.


Very simple card to make!  I stamped the sentiment down the left hand side of the card, then finished by adding both the stamped characters and a few pearls.

That's it for this week bloggers, please pop by the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog to see the amazing work my team mates have been creating.

Hi everyone, for my post today I want to share with you the samples I made for Bev's live Hochanda show from the NEC.    The following cards were made using Bee Crafty's Heraldic set of stamps, and I've got to say I really enjoyed playing with these - the alphabet is fabulous!

Materials



Front of twist & pop card


Back of twist & pop card


Inside of twist & pop card


8" x 8" card made using Spiced Marmalade, Wilted Violet & Vintage Photo Distress Oxides


6" x 6" card made using Chipped Sapphire & Candied Apple Distress Oxides


6" x 6" card made using Ost.Blue Brushos


8" x 8" card made using Seedless Preserves & Wilted Violet Distress Inks.  I put some of the inks on to a blending mat, spritzed with water and then dragged a square of card through it - whilst still wet I placed a scrunched up piece of clingfilm over the top and left for around 5 mins.  I then carefully removed the clingfilm and dried the card, and I was left with this pattern on my card.

I'll be back next week to share another project with you all, until then happy crafting!  Remember to pop over to the Buzzy Goings on at Bee Crafty blog to see what my teammates have been getting up to.

Imagine Design Create DT post - stencils

Hi everyone, it's Thursday which means it's time for me to share another Imagine Design Create project with you all.  I've been playing with my new stencils again, and mixing them up with some of my stamp sets and I want to show you 2 of the cards I have designed.

Materials



Cut squares of white and black card for your mats and layers,  Take the smallest white square and place the window stencil over it, lightly trace around the squares using a pencil.  Stamp the images in each of the windows, being careful to mask off where necessary.  Add some colour using pens and mat and layer on to the black card.  Glue to the card blank.


Cut 3 squares of white card each smaller than the first.  Take the largest of the squares and blend Frayed Burlap around the edges.  Mat the next sized white square to this, and glue to the card blank.  Take the smallest white square and place the small circle template in the centre, blend some Antique Linen all over the card.  Keeping the stencil in place, stamp feathers over the card using Frayed Burlap.  Remove the stencil and blend some Frayed Burlap around the edges of the card, and stamp the sentiment in the centre.  Glue this layer to the card blank.

That's it for this week bloggers, I hope you liked my designs and if you have any questions/thoughts then please do get in touch as I love to read your comments.  Remember to pop over to the Imagine Design Create blog to see some more inspirational projects by my team-mates.

Hugs, Lorre-Anne x
