Freestyle Collage

Hi everyone, I do not know about you but I seem to collect all sorts of bits and pieces 'just in case' I need it when I go to make my next card project.  I have accumulated so many treasures that I am getting over run by them.  So I was very excited when I actually found a definition for my style of card that I want to share with you today.  It is 'Freestyle Collage' which means unrelated elements in a collection.  So get all you bits and bobs out, your dies, stamps and inks and go for it.

For my card I have used Memory Box dies 'Hollyhock Stem' and 'Woven Circle' with the Darkroom Door Stamp Set 'Simple Sayings'.   The sentiment I cut out using the Spellbinders Shapeabilities 'Fancy Framed Tags Two'. 

Come and browse around Bizzy Bec's online store here.  Bec has a great range of stamps, dies and all things that you will need to make some great projects, or if you need to collect some more bits and pieces for 'just in case'. 



Thank you for visiting.

Birthday Wishes.....

Hi everyone, can you believe January has been and gone already.  I have not had much time for card making lately, but would like to share with you a card I made using some of the great products available from Bizzy Becs online store.

On my card I have used Small Stitched Circle Stackables and Large Stitched Circle Stackables from Lawn Fawn, Leaf Filled Flourish from MFT, sentiment is from Bizzy Becs Digi Ticket Stubs - "A Little bit of Everything 3" and the image is a stamp from CC Designs.  Bec has a great range of stamps, dies and all things that you will need to make some great projects.  Come and browse around Bizzy Becs online store here.

I coloured the images with Copic Markers and added a few small flowers and some sequins.  All edges were inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give a bit of a vintage feel.


Thank you for visiting,
Carolyn
