Hi there

I am sharing with you a cute card using a really cute my besties stamp called Fancy Pants Susie. I think you'll love this Stamp as much as I do.

I have coloured the image and the die cut bubbles using Copic markers,  texture  has been added by embossing the scalloped edge die cut on the layer below.

Avery Elle _ Sweet Scallops Die
Memory Box - Curved Happy Birthday
Memory Box - Loopy Rings

Totally Gorjuss

It's the 25th so my turn to share a little bit of Bizzy Becs inspiration with you today.
This time I decided to use a totally gorgeous Gorjuss Girl image called Sweet Tea.

I think these images deserve a bit of frou frou so I added some flowers from my stash and added some lovely scalloped borders using Lawn Fawn Stitched Scallop Borders Die.
This die set comes with 3 different sized dies so you can adjust the look depending on what you like.
I coloured the image with my copic markers this time as they have been a bit neglected with my new promarker passion.

Thanks so much for dropping by

Memory Box Poppies with Bokeh Method

Hi, Shaz here-  'tis the 15th of the month so time for another DT post for Bizzy Bec's! Thought we'd take another look at the Bokeh method
Here's a peek!
Bokeh method shown also step by step here and below
LESSON 1: dont get it too wet or it will dry blotchy like mine.. I used distress inks  on watercolour. 
LESSON 3:  when you die cut use a heavier quality piece of acetate as you can get, mine was, as was scrap from a lid, lighter you can trouble with mask. The white bubbles are overlapped and are done with chalk ink, it is better really if you dry between, I also did the different sizes it three (odd numbers -> better balance) of larger size then five (or so of next size and more of last size.
Have cut the two lots of prim poppies and arranged them on the oval die cut of Bokeh background. One bud I chose to use reverse side of bud, (ie turned it over so it faced other way). Shaped all flowers accordingly with shaping tool on mat.
Items used:Watercolour Paper

Spellbinder Elegant Ovals
Cottage cutz stitched oval
(fits the spellbinder ovals perfectly)
Impressions Obsession Greeting die set.

This background was made see here, on last month's post..applied bokeh background then added the diecut frame with Tonic scalloped rectangle die, Butterfly is Joy Vintage Fourish butterfly and the thanks is CB Olivia alphabet die . discontinued years back.
Thanks everyone for popping by, especially if you take time to say hi :D
And you may like to join in with the March Anything Goes challenge over at Bizzy Bec's ... you just might win that stamp or die prize!
