Hello Friend

Hello!  I hope you are all enjoying the public holiday and that you had a lovely Australia Day weekend.  

I am just popping in to share a card that I made using one of the adorable Gorjuss Girl stamps from Bizzy Becs Online Store.  And all of the papers I used came from one of my new card kits (No. 13). I love getting these kits because you have everything you need at hand to throw a great card together.

And to make putting this card together even easier I have paper pieced her dress using paper from the kit as well and just coloured her hair and skin using Copic Markers.

Stamp: Gorjuss Girls Sending Love
Cardstock/Paper: Card Kit No. 13
Other: Stitching, notepad die, Copic markers.

Thanks for dropping by today.  I am off to spend part of this gorgeous public holiday in my craft room.

Happy Stamping!

Mimosa Hat

Hi everyone  today I would like to share with you a card I made using a gorgeous stamp by Bildmalarna called "Mimosa Hat."  I haven't used these stamps before and I have to say they are rather cute and may have to get a few more.  This stamp and many more are currently available for preorder here at Bizzy Becs .

I have also used a Spellbinder die Splendid Circles which is also available to order here.

I have coloured her with Copics and her over top has been paper pierced.  The card has a summery feel  to it and follows along nicely with this months challenge "Fun in the Sun".

Don't forget there is still time to enter this month's challenge and be in the running the win this months prize.  Can't wait to see your creations.

Happy crafting

And Baby makes three

So the craft room is getting unpacked slowly.  My daughter yet again has asked me to come up with a baby card for her SIL as the baby is due next month. 
How much fun did I have hunting through all the boxes to find - spellbinders, magnolia stamps, ribbon, pearls and of course the most important item paper! Now Bizzy Bec has all these wonderful things plus more. She is currently pre-ordering Spellbinder dies but you only have til the 29 Jan to place your order for those. 

So on to my card! Please let me know if you like it?

Now don't forget to enter into Bizzy Bec's January current challenge 'Fun in the Sun' here!
Have a great day and stay safe.

Roses Bike Ride

Hello everyone! Kelly here and here is another card I made featuring one of the cuties from Whimsy Wee Stamps. This sweetie is called 'roses bike ride' and I coloured her with copics. My sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps (Bizzy Becs now has a great range of these awesome sentiments!) and I have embossed it. My butterfly is cut out using a Cheery Lynn die called 'lace fairy queen' and my gorgeous big flourish is 'fanciful flourish'.
Please join us for our current challenge 'fun in the sun'!

Life is an Adventure

Hi everyone Suzanne here. I made two extra cards this month which fit our Fun in the Sun Challenge. When it came to deciding which one to share I found it very hard to make the decision (typical me!) so have decided to use both.

On the first one I played with my new gelato crayons to make the background. I rubbed over a background stamped image which I had heat embossed. I then added two Memory Box Dies - Swaying Palm and Brand New Bicylcle. Memory Box Dies are available for pre-order at Bizzy Bec's Online Store.

On the second card I used paper from a pad I purchased from Bec's Online Store. It is called Summer Splash and is from My Minds Eye range. The only extras I added were the ribbon which is from my stash and the wave border as I wanted to make the card using just the design paper with minimal extras.

Take a look at Bec's Online Store  to see the collection of craft goodies she has available. The prize for this month's challenge is a new Memory Box Die so join in the summer fun and enter the challenge. We love to see your creations!

How to Post in Blogger

Hi everyone, as you may have noticed the Insert an Image function is not working in Blogger in Compose mode for users on Internet Explorer.

You can still add your images by using the HTML function situated on the left hand side of the Post Screen just below the Post Title Box.

I wrote my post, I then clicked on the HTML button.  Don't panic at this stage as it looks like gobbledegook.  Select the Insert an Image Icon (the little picture in the box the same as in Compose Mode). 

The option "Add an image from your Computer" will be displayed towards top on the left hand side of the screen.  Click on the Browse button, find your image to upload and upload as normal.  You can add another image by clicking on "To Add Another Image" option.

Once you have added your images, you will need to accept the conditions and agreements by ticking the box (I only had to do this the first time I used this option) and then the "Upload Image" icon will allow you to click on it to upload your images.

I then selected the Compose Mode option again and finished my post as normal. 

Hope this makes sense and will help those having difficulty in posting on Blogger.

Tilda Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone, Carolyn here, I would like to share a card with you that I have made using the Magnolia image Tilda with Flowing Hair, coloured with copic markers, and Card Making Kit No. 10.

The Card Making Kits available at Bizzy Becs Online Store are so full of goodies, with paper, flowers, sentiments, die cuts, rhinestones or pearls, just everything you need to complete your project, just add your image.   You can even make a card without an image, as the flowers and pearls on stems with the sentiment added on a memo pin make a pretty posy on their own.
