hippo birdie

Hi there!

January is almost over and if you asked me I think Ive missed most of it! Today I would like to show you a card I've made. I must say I smile every time I see this stamp set, Lawn Fawn Year Four stamp and die sets.





I have created the background by sponging acrylic paint through a stencil, modern pop dots. I have then replaced the stencil and drawn around the circles with a fine marker pen. It's a really simple design with really nice bright colours.
I have then added layers of colour and added my stamped images.

Dies used: lawn Fawn year four and stitched scallop borders. MFT stitched rectangle stack.
Stamp; Lawn Fawn year Four.
Stencil: Memory box Modern pop dots

Pop in to Bizzy Becs online store there is still time to claim the coupon savings!

Peppa Pig Birthday


Hello Everyone,

This month I was lucky enough to celebrate a birthday with one special young lady who turned 2. 

I knew she liked Peppa Pig, so I made this card which went along with a lovely noisy book :) I saw Peppa Pig made like this a while ago and saved it to my phone, but I have no idea where it came from...sorry. I have CASED it for today's card. I have used Spellbinders circle dies to create Peppa Pig,Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders and Spring Showers and My Favorite Things die called Heart Balloons. The sentiment is by Impression Obsession.

There is loads of inspiration on the Blog and plenty of time ot enter this month challenge of "ANYTHING GOES". 

See you again soon for the next challenge!

the Laugh and Play arrows are Memory Box's Happy Arrows stencil using 
 distress ink Festive Berries, 
the Week No was stenciled using MFT Die Accent Calendar, 
with Distress Ink Mowed Lawn. 
The number and the heart are also out of this die set, coloured with Salty Ocean and Picked Raspberry and .
then using Ranger Glossy Accents on top to make them stand out a little.
For the 'week 5' card:-
 I used Memory Box's raindrops stencil with Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass. 
The banner and the 2015 text is from the Lawn Fawn - Stitched Journalling die set,
 the text is using Milo's ABC's stamp set from Lawn Fawn,

Smile

Hi everyone, I have been playing with some goodies that I got from Santa and would like to share with you the card that I made.


On my card I have used Stitched Rounded Rectangles from MFT and the Lawn Fawn stamp set 'Blissful Botanicals" with the coordinating dies.  These are available from Bizzy Becs online store here.   I coloured the images with Copic Markers and added a little butterfly from a pack of Petaloo mini butterflies.  I have not done a lot of colouring lately with my Copic Markers, so it was good to get back into a project that was quite simple to colour and I love the finished effect.



Thank you for visiting.
Carolyn.

a vintage christmas card

Hi Everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with loved ones. Today I would like to share with you a card I made for a friend of mine. I decided to go with a neutral pallete and a vintage theme.
I have embossed the background and mounted this on a contrasting layer. 
The candle die had three candles together but this was too large so I have just cut off the extra two giving me a nice simple look. 




I have mounted the holly die cut on foam tape and finished off with some stickles around the top of the candle, a few pearls stuck down on the ends of the vines help to add a nice soft contrast.


Memory box dies used: 
holly bouquet, pillar candle trio and victorian frame.




Don't forget to have a look at Bizzy Becs online store to pre-order these products and so much more. 
Get a few extra too with the New Year Coupon Sale!

a simple card


Hi everyone, is it just me.... or is it just a little crazy at the moment? There just doesn't seem to be any time. Today I would like to share with you a card I have made and I am really pleased with how simple it is yet so effective.

Supplies used:
Distress ink pads: shaded lilac, ripe persimmon, seedless preserves

Mandy
