Wee Florist

Hi Everyone ,
Cheryl  here with a card I made using Whimsy Wee Stamp available at Bizzy Bec's Online Store isn't she adorable....
I have coloured her with copic's and pencils, can you see the pretty Cherry Lynn lace die, these dies are so intricate they are just beautiful, Bec hasn't got this one at the moment but if you email her, she may be able to help you, check out the other beautiful Cherry Lynn dies HERE . The ribbon and slider is also from Bec's and the sentiment is one of her Digi freebies. I hope you all are having a great week, till next time.
Big Hugs Cheryl F

Gift Card Tag Card Holders Tutorial

I no longer buy lots of gifts for neices/nephews as they are all getting older, so I get them gift cards from places I know they love and give them at Xmas. I was making some of these gift card holders to hang on my tree the other day and thought...hmm maybe others would like to make some too so I have done up a quick tutorial for you all.

I hope it makes sense and you take some inspiration from it.

First up you will need a piece of cardstock 12 inches x 4 1/2 inches (30cms x 11.5 cms.)
Score this at 5 inches (13cms) and fold in half.
You will then need to cut this into a tag shape.  I do this by measuring down 2 inches (5cms) down the sides and in 1 inch (2.5cms) across the top, drawing a line then cutting off the corners, and cutting through both layers. Hopefully the picture below makes it more clearer.

Now you can decoarte the front and the insides with paper of your choice.  You can do the whole front but for now just paper on the inside.

For the inside I like to create a writing panel so I can put a little note on it to the recipient wishing them a Merry Christmas. On this example I did this on the back of the front panel.

Now you need to create a pocket or something to hold the giftcard on the inside so it doesnt get lost.
I normally do this by cutting a piece of cardstock 4 1/2 inches x 3inches (11.5cms x 8cms).  Glue across the sides and bottom only and stick to the inside back flap and decorate.  You gift card then slides in this bit!

Now to hold it shut you will need to create some kind of catch to keep it closed.
On this card I did this by stamping out a small sentiment and creating a small rectangle with it.
I then just glued down the top of it making sure the bottom covers the front flap to keep it closed.

Now you just need to punch a hole and thread some ribbon through to hang from your tree.

and another one I did along the same lines but used a sentiment in a circle shape to keep it closed.
Just use your imagination!!!

Stamps I have used are Magnolia and Whimsy stamps available from Bizzy Bec's.
Images are coloured with Copics also available from Bizzy Bec's.
Ribbon, Lace and papers also available from bizzy Bec's wonderful shop!

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!

Romantic Magnolia's

Friday at last!

So this my first post for Bizzy Bec as one of her new Design Team members. I would like to share with you all a card that I made for my daughter as she is attending a wedding this weekend and needed her mum to make her a card.
Now I know that Bec doesn't have these particular Magnolia Images listed - however do you know if you email her - she will be more than happy to help you find the image you're looking for.

As you can see I've used some lovely papers (My Mind's Eye), flowers and a Magnolia die (hearts border), hearts (coloured with my copics) as well and these you can also pick up from Bec whilst perusing her online store. I've coloured my image with my trusty copics and did you know that Bec is a Copic Rewards Authorised Partner? Well she is.. and this is great as you can now order all your ciao's, sketch's and most importantly refills from Bec and get tokens to redeem on special Copic items..

Now don't forget you still have a couple of days to enter Bizzy Bec's November challenge circles!

So have a lovely creating weekend.

To love....

Hi Everyone, Debra here,  I have been having a play with my Magnolia stamps, I love this little Tilda, sooo cute.
Tilda Holding Egg Basket is her name and she came from Bizzy Becs Online Store  so if you pop a line to Bec I'm sure she can help you out if you cant find her.
 She did have eggs in her basket but I put in some little hearts instead, they come as pearl white so I coloured some of them with my Copic markers. These gorgeous hearts are also available from Bizzy Becs.
I also had a bit of a play with some grass for the grounding, lots of copic markers used here along with a White gel pen...
Don't forget to enter the Challenge this month, the theme is Circles.
Hope you Have a Great Day and Happy Stamping,xxx
