Ellie's Birthday

Hello there!  I hope that you are all having a great weekend and that you are finding some time for lots of fun stuff - like stamping :)

I just wanted to share a card I made this week using the gorgeous Saturated Canary image called Ellie's Birthday. Did you know that Bizzy Becs store now sells these gorgeous images?  You can find them right HERE.

And rather than colour the whole image I decided to paper piece a lot of it and just used my Copic markers to colour her skin, hair and part of her boots.  Sometimes images with a lot of colouring space can be slightly intimidating when you're starting out but they don't need to be! There are so many ways to tackle these types of images, either with Copics, pencils, watercolours or paper piecing like I have done.

Card/Paper: Echo Park patterned paper. You can find some great paper packs HERE.
Other: Copics, ribbon, stitching.

Happy Stamping!
Jodene :)

Birthday Maggie

Hello all...

Thought I would just pop by to show you a card that I coloured in the other night. I've used the gorgeous Summer Flower Tilda and have had a go with the feather blending technique...not too bad I must say, must have a great teacher!!! :) :) :) You can purchase Magnolia images from Bizzy Bec's online store and she has a few new Chrissy ones in store for you too!

This card also fits in with this months challenge called "Things with Wings". You have plenty of time, so get those pens out and colour away! You could win a Whimsy Wee stamp called Summer Fairy!

Loving all your creativitiy!!

Hi everyone Karen here, today I would like to share with you another card I have made following along with my Halloween theme.

For my card I have used a Blue Butterfly Digi "Candra Goth Girl"  which is one of the many fabulous digi stamps available from Bizzy Becs online store here.

I have seen quite a few different shapes and styles of cards lately so thought I might try something new also.  For my card I have made a Twisted Easel card.  I have to say I thought they would be tricky but they are so easy and love the effect.

I have layered different die cuts  on my card ,Spellbinder Lacy Squares and Memory Box Dies - Estate Fence and Twiggy Tree both are available through Becs online store here and here.

Don't forget there is still plenty of time to enter this months challenge "Things with Wings" and to be in the running to win this month's prize - Summer Fairy from Whimsy Wee.

Happy crafting

~Thank You~

I just wanted to say "Thank You" to all my crafty friends as we get closer to moving.. I only have 28 days of work to go! I am sure this wont take long to go .
Today I've spent the day at home with my hubby- as he paints one of the last walls in our house before we put it up for sale! He has also changed over all the power outlets and light switches to brand new ones! So while he had the power off - I created this little card for a friend at work who leaves us next week. It is my way of saying how much we loved having her work with us and we will miss her dearly.
Now funnily enough its also that time of the month where its my turn to create a card for Bizzy Bec's blog.
I hope you like it. 

As most of my craft gear is in boxes I have a limited supply of goodies to use! But i thought i would show off a set of Cheery Lyn Design - Exotic Butterflies which you can find here in Bizzy Bec's store along with a load of different designs. I've also used some lovely satin edge sheer ribbon which is see through and goes with everything.. you can find that one here along with some other lovely colours!
Oh just so you know - I've taken this photo with my iPhone as the camera and photo booth are also packed!
Well thanks for looking and I look forward to seeing your cards in Bizzy Bec's current Challenge - Things with wings.. You still have a little time to get your entry in and you could be in the running for a Whimsy Wee Stamp called  Summer Fairy.
