Nearly Halloween...

Hi everyone, just popping in today to share a card made using Blue Butterfly Digital Stamps which are available in the store.

In the spirit of Halloween,  which is just around the corner,  I made this shaker card for
a friend whose birthday falls on that day.  I had fun playing with a different skin colours as I wanted something ghoulish looking.  In the end I  came up with this greenish colour and am quite
happy with the end result.  She has been coloured using Copics.

I have used the following

Blue Butterfly Digital Stamp - Candra Goth  Girl

details of other items used are on my blog.

Bizzy Becs Card Kits are back in stock  together with  a selection of envelopes to suit different card sizes, check them out here....

Thanks for dropping by, happy crafting

Side Step card With 3D Images

Hullo there everyone .. Shaz  here again with another DT post for Bizzy Bec's. Branching out into the unknown today, with a side step card!! For a very special birthday, you see! Here is a peek!
To be perfectly honest I like simple layouts. These fancy folds are not simple layouts! Bec has a great die that makes variations on this side stepping card, it is here. Used a simple template I had for rough guide, working it out on scoreboard. Took two goes scoring to get it right, wanted it bigger than template.
Used the Frantic Stamper Dies - Chevron Borders & Edgers (2) - make a whole sheet for background of alternating chevrons. Glued down one at time, kept them in order as cut the individual ones, so as to keep *colour graduations, yes fiddly plus but great effect. *used pre-coloured sheet.
Base for image done, then cut it with largest die of SB Pierced Rectangles

Stamped two images (one for base, one for 3D image) of the Wild Rose Stamps - Dragon Birthday in Versafine Black Onyx, and clear heat embossed.
Die cut a pink scalloped base with Spellbinder Petite scallop (Disc.) and one image with Cottage Cutz Stitched Oval die (they fit spellbinder oval dies very well).
While still in stitched die, ink coloured the background to match colours used on other image already coloured with Tombow markers. Fussy cut around the coloured dragon image, cutting into the folds of the image. Lay image on shaping mat face down, shape the image, with shaping tool to get 3D effect with minimal layers. Attached to base image with silicone glue and allow to dry.
See here for Tutorial to do it this way.

Completed side step card:
 "th" is from Impression Obsession Greetings die from birthday - this set here!

**Wild Rose Stamps - Dragon Birthday 
(**bought Aug '17 from Bec, still available online, but not listed, so please ask for it)
Tombow coloured pens 
Close up of the image, the gold paint used is Finetec Watercolour metallic set. Just loved this image, right down to wee crown on Miss Mousey's head.
