Playing with Distress Inks

Hi everyone, I would like to share my card with you that I have made using Distress Inks to create the background.


I inked up an embossing folder with Antique Linen and put it through the Bigshot.  I then sponged on Vintage Photo as the next layer, then Brushed Corduroy and finished off with Walnut Stain.  I just love the finished colours on the background.


The sentiment is from the Darkroom Door "Simply Sayings" stamp set which I stamped in Walnut Stain on a piece of cream cardstock, punch out and layered up onto a piece of dark chocolate cardstock.  The base card is the dark chocolate cardstock and the mat is cream cardstock.  I finished off my card with some brown pearls and chocolate seam binding ribbon.


The Distress Inks and the stamp set are available from Bizzy Bec's Online Store here.



Thank you for visiting.

Box Card

Hi Karen here.   Today I would like to share with a box card.  I have seen these a lot lately and thought I would like to have a go too.  This one is quite a cutie, folds to fit a standard C6 envelope, which suited my needs perfectly as it had to be posted. There are so many tutorials out there on the net, so give them a go.

To embellish my box card I have used items that all available via Bizzy Becs online store here"Poppy Stamps die - vintage bird cage and nested bird", flowers, ribbon and sentiment. Patterned paper and cardstock is from my own stash.


Bizzy Becs have a fabulous array of dies to preorder at the moment, check them out here. There is also still plenty of time left to join us for this months challenge.

Until next time
Happy Crafting
