Rainbow Artist Ink Card Set for Bee Arty

Wednesday, July 29, 2020 0 Comments
Hi everyone, today I'm back on the blog sharing a set of cards I have made using various Bee Arty dies. I can't ever just make one card as I have so many ideas and want to do them all at the same time, so I usually end up making a set. I should warn you though, there is A LOT of die cutting in this project. Great to do if you're watching TV or don't have a lot of creative mojo.

The card bases are all A2 size - 4.25" x 5.5" cut from black cardstock. The white layers are all cut to 1/8 of an inch smaller. The backgrounds are made using Colour Blast Artist Inks and water layered at different stages to get different effects.

These are all of the die cuts used to make each background.

These are the die cuts you'll need to embellish each card. Each embellishment has been die cut three times from white cardstock and adhered together. I have used the same colours to paint the die cuts according to each card. Then to add some shimmer and shine I've used the Colour Blast clear shimmer pen and some Glossy Accents. For the sentiments, I've just used some from various stamp sets that I had on my table at the time.

*At the time of photographing I was planning to use all three flowers from the "Flowers of Paradise" die set but only used the medium flower. The Flower Power die cuts are also missing from the photo as at that stage I hadn't planned on using them.

Here are my cards plus a list of products used on each card so you can recreate them.

Steampunk Glam Layout plus bonus Art Journal Page for Bee Arty

Wednesday, July 15, 2020 0 Comments
Hi everyone, today I'm sharing two inspiration projects I have created using both the Time Flies Collection and also the Limited Edition Collection both designed by Michelle Grant. I love to cross boundaries and mix and match collections, it gives you even more creative space and breathes new life into old collections that you have sitting idle in your craft room.

I was going to use the two steampunk girls on my layout but that made it way too busy, so I decided to use them on an art journal page instead. Here are my projects including close ups and a list of what I used to create them.

Scrap the Girls July Challenge

Wednesday, July 01, 2020 0 Comments
Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing my Design Team project for the Scrap the Girls July Challenge. Scrap the Girls is a challenge whereby the only basic rule is - no boys! Every month there will be a mood board to follow for inspiration.

Here is my take on July's mood board. Instead of trying to find a photo of someone eating something sweet, I played on the word "Sweet". It worked perfectly with a photo I found of my niece that was a "sweet" moment.

Thanks for stopping by, happy crafting.
