Yay!!! KITES!

Hi, Louise here today to share with you a card made with the Lawn Fawn Yay Kites stamps and die sets.  These are available now for pre-order over at Bizzy Bec's shop.



This was my first time actually using a stamp set with a matching die and it was pretty simple.
My only tip would be use washi tape to hold the dies in place when cutting.

I coloured my images with markers and foam mounted some of them against the base of the card.

For the hills at the bottom of the card I used Stitched Hillside Borders also by Lawn Fawn

Thanks for joining me today and I hope you enjoyed my first post as a member of the Design Team here at Bizzy Becs :)

Accordion Card

Hello Everyone visiting.  I thought I'd make an Accordion Card for today.

Using the Elizabeth Craft Design - Fancy Label

You can have as many sections as you like.  
I chose to have three sections today but it depends how much you have available to put in your card.
Front Panel
The stamp I chose I have had for many years. 
The flowers are from another die set....
Leane Creatief  Dies – Swirl Circle and Flowers
I snipped the flowers between each petal and worked each petal from behind with a stylist to stretch the card stock.  I sponged the tips of the petals and added the pearls and I was very happy with the end result.
The centre panel I used:
Joy Craft - Mug and Cup and Joy Craft - Tea Pot 
(though I think it looks more like a coffee pot, which suited my purpose)
I added some fun flock on top of each cup for foam.
The end panel I used the flowers again as done on the front.
The Cup Cake and candle are out of the Sizzix Step ups – Happy Birthday
Impression Obsessions – Greeting Set
Happy card making and creating everyone.
Don't forget to put a card on Bizzy Bec's Blog for the challenge of Anything Goes.
Blessings, Carol

Darkroom Door Photo Stamp - Surfboards

Hi there - Shaz here with another step by step :D

To the method ...
Stamp the lovely stamp in black Versafine ink and emboss with clear Embossing powder.
I had bought some lovely cheesecloth from Bec and wanted to use it with surfboard stamp, + the Dylusions teal spray, also perfect pearls spray. Has lovely sheen on this, just cant see it.
Here is the dyed cheesecloth (also used it as a stamp while it wet and juicy on some other card to right). It was too dark when done so I wrapped it up like a sausage and put a Rubber band down length of it, like we did for tie dyeing in the '70's. Then wet it all over again with water and took some of the colour out randomly with kitchen paper to get the mixed colour. Let it dry naturally.
Assembled card - Added some real sand from our beach, with some texture paste and masking tape.  Coloured the sky with DI ink and hand made cloud masks. Added the colour to sea with Versamark and Perfect Pearls, and also the surfboards. Turquoise card on left was coloured from cheesecloth stamps above and added some more colour after embossing piece, I added some more inks to highlight. Only needed a third of cheesecloth which was dyed, it was folded over three times. Happy Birthday was stamped in Versafine on cork, and clear embossed.
Loads of shimmer on this card....
Products used:

*Ranger Perfect Pearls PPP21803 Aged Patina 
(available for order, as are Ranger products - see Bec.)
*Cheesecloth (out of stock, but also available through Bec.)
Thanks so VERY much for popping over for peek and chat...

please over here too - you may win that prize!

Thank you Tag....

Hi everyone, just popping in today to share with you a little Thank You tag I have made to go onto a gift that I am delivering on Tuesday.

I have used lots of different goodies to create the tag and I have listed below the items that can be preordered from Bizzy Becs online store.



First I applied Texture paste through my stencil Heartwood by  Memory Box then when it was dry I applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads in Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin and Candied Apple.

Other elements used are Dressform Duo die from Die versions which together with the ribbon was an element from an old Card Kit from Bizzy Becs.

The gold heart  is a Sizzix Thinlit Die - Scribbles and Splat and the gold Thank You font is also from Sizzix  - Celebrate (this is not listed in store but if available can be ordered -  just email Bec) .
To finish off the tag I added lace, flower  and bling elements from Card Kit No 8 

Thanks for looking, have a fabulous week.

Until next time, Happy Crafting

Penny Black "In The Garden" + How to do Simple 3D Stamped Images

This is 3D images with stamps - a favourite in this instance, Penny Black!
Bec has such exceptional prices on these, I was thrilled when saw:
Penny Black in the Garden on Bec's site (pre-order)!
Here is the first card made with this set, not done in 3D. Stamped in black + embossed, coloured with watercolour markers. Then decided to 3D the second card.
 {Used: **Penny Black "In the Garden" stamp set  **Memory Box Pinpoint circles. }
You create your own scene with these images, as there are all different elements from which to chose. 1. I always practise on a scrap sheet before leaping onto good paper.
2. I stamp on 80gsm paper, a light card, as heavy card is harder to shape well.
3. Used to do more stamping for 3D work. I find you really don't need to do lots of multiple stamping (see here for full explanation).
Here is the amount of stamping for this 3D scene. A good background, then elements you wish to 3D on another piece. The cat and basket will be cut out separately, so they are shaped and glued individually.
Items used: *Shaping Tool *Foam molding mat *Silicone glue - available from Bec.
This is the finished second card which was done with 3D.
  Items used: **
Pre-order Blackberry Lane papers by Wild Rose Studio pads  **Pre-order Our Daily Bread Beautiful Borders die set.
Close up of 3D work, coloured with same pens, background sponged while still in die to get crisp white shadow edge, with Distress ink and hand cut hills + clouds mask.
Well, I do hope this is clear for you - there is more detail over here, with many more pictures.
I have learnt how to do these after seeing it first done at a craft show in Brisbane in 2010.
They are so much fun!
 Thanks so much everyone for popping over and saying hi!
...and dont forget to join in here with Bec's Anything Goes May challenge ..
you might win that prize :D
