Simply Perfect - With Bee Arty!

Hi Lovelies!

Today I have a scrapbook page to share with you made using lots of fabulous arty products from Bee Arty.  
 
 
 I started with a sheet of 350gsm Heavy White Cardstock and spritzed it with water along the right and left of the page (where I wanted to add colour). Then I used a fan brush to add Cool Mint Mica powder. I  continued to spritz more water and add more colour until I had achieved the desired look. 
 
 
Next I added some stencilling using the Honeycomb Spray A5 stencil and Stormy Weather Mica powder (mixed with water and applied with a sponge). 

 
I added stamping using the Find Your Way stamp and Black Archival ink
 
 
 I used a combination of Jet Black and Taupe Embossing powders from the Romance Embossing bundle. You could use any combination you prefer (or a single colour), but I love the rustic look of multiple colours.
 
 
Here is my completed page. 
 
 
 I added a photo mat from Chit Chat Alpha paper and black cardstock diecut created from the Compass metal die.
 
 
 The white cardstock diecuts are created using the Flower Stems metal die set.

I'm playing along with the May mood-sketch challenge. We would love for you to join in with this challenge and be in the running to win a Bee Arty online voucher. You have until May 30th and you need to upload your challenge here (please follow challenge rules). 
 
 
For my page I've been inspired by both the colours and the sketch of this mood-sketch challenge.
I started with a sheet of 350gsm Heavy White Cardstock and used a painting with plastic technique to add Apple of my Eye and Stormy Weather Mica powders.
Then I added splatters of Apple of my Eye, Stormy Weather and Peach Nectar Mica powders.
I added stamping using the Forever Always stamp, from the Forever My Always collection, and Black Archival ink.
 
 
I added texture to my page using the My Lady A4 stencil (from the Forever My Always collection) and some Peach Nectar Mica powder mixed with a white crackle texture paste (or heavy white gesso would work well also). 

 
Here is my completed page. My Horse Tommy is such a character - he makes me laugh!
 
 
To complete the page I've added photo mats and strips of paper along the top of the page using Embrace Change paper offcuts. 
I've added fussy cut images also from the Embrace Change paper collection.  
I've added a bird diecut from the Bird Talk metal die set
  a flower diecut from the Calendula metal die set (Bohemian Bliss collection),
and a large flower from the My Flower metal die
The diecuts were created using 250gsm White Cardstock and Matte Brown foil Mirror cardstock.

 
Words were cut from the Embrace Change paper collection. 
 
 
 I added a metal flair, paperclip and chevron wood veneer from my stash.

 
Lastly I've added journalling using a fine black Life of Colour paint pen

21st Card - With Bee Arty!

Hi Lovelies!

Today I have a 21st Birthday card to share with you made using products from the Forever My Always collection from Bee Arty.  These papers are so pretty and perfect for a 21st birthday card :)
 
 
I created the card base from a 12"x12" page of 350gsm Heavy White Cardstock. I cut it down to 28cmx14cm and folded in half to give a 14cm square card.
 
I used Matte Brown foil Mirror board for the card front mat 13.5cmx13.5cm and also for the diecuts cut using the My Flower metal die. I actually cut the leaves apart from the flower so I could space them across the card front. I also used the Numbers metal die from the Fireworks collection.
 
The background is 12.5cmx12.5cm cut from the Best By Far paper. The flowers and leaves were fussy cut from the Forever My Always collection pack.

I was initially inspired by the butterfly in the sketch so I took a sheet of 350gsm Heavy White Cardstock and used the Fairy Wings A5 stencil (from the Whispering Woods collection) and some Deep Water  Colour Paste.

 
I used a painting with plastic technique to add Deep Water and Jungle Mica powders.

I added stamping using the Mapped stamp from the Road Trip collection, and the Memories (script) stamp and Black Archival ink. I created a title using the Uppercase stamp set from the Fireworks collection. I also added splatters of Midnight Shimmer Dust. Then I used my sewing machine to add stitching around the edge of the page.
 
 
Here is my completed page. 

 
I've matted my photo on layers of paper offcuts from the the Road Trip collection. The leaves and cups are fussy cut from the Road Trip Collection Cover paper. The words are cut from the Vacay paper, also from the Road Trip Collection. I've added a flower diecut from the Calendula metal die set (Bohemian Bliss collection).
