The Sea - Our Daily Bread Stamp

Excited today :D my very first DT post with Bizzy Bec's.
Here is a step by step guide on making a male card.
Used the Our Baily Bread Stamp - "The Sea Single" stamp (link here).
 What a brilliant scene stamp this is! a favourite stamp and used in different ways to great effect.
Stamped and clear embossed image, coloured with pencils, using ink sponging for the sky and sandy inky colouring (this was extended so as to add sand, pebbles, etc).
On clouds u
sed a hand cut cloud mask + Ranger round ink distressing tool (link here).
Added small stones from pebble garden, sand from the side of house; embossing paste to attach sand, pebbles, wee shells and starfish from stash.
Distressed the embossed card first with distressing tool, then applied randomly various inks the Tim Holtz Woodgrain Embossing folder by Sizzix. (Links here).
Used as you can see some Distress Inks as well, Faded Jeans, Spiced Marmalade and Antique Linen (great useful colour this one - links included on ink names). I actually just smooched the ink pads directly on and rubbed them around with my fingers but of course less messy to use sponge applicator :D
Use Spellbinder Fleur de Lis Square (link here). Cut largest die for the sea image and cut the pieces of black card into four pieces to make corners.
Here is the finished card. Used on the left side * burlap (which I fringed one side - BB link here).
To make a great Male card, my tip is to use texture!
Blue card embossed with embossing folder, "60" in corner cut with  alphabet die set.
Digi greeting for happy birthday, computer printed on shiny card, so able to emboss it.
For more details see my blog post .. here.

There is also Bizzy Bec's monthly challenge with a die or stamp prize over here - it is anything goes and is posted worldwide - so do join in please do!
Thanks! hope it has helped you :D

Journalling Cards- NYC

I wanted to create some journaling cards to go in my Life Book for a recent holiday. Luckily there were some great 'New York' rubber stamps from Darkroom Door in the store that suited this task.  I was really pleased I could create all of these with just one set. All details for techniques, other products used (Bec has a great range of Ranger products available in the store)and store links are on my blog.
I hope you stop by, Jackie x
