Picket Fence Studios Unicorn Friend

Hi There

I'm back again with another card for you.
This project is for Bizzy Bec's and features a sweet stamp from Picket Fence Studios called Unicorn Friend.

I have used a tonic Easel card Die to create a starting point for the base of my card.

However I have layered several pieces of card that are Gelli plate printed.
To create the backgrounds I have used a technique that Debra James taught us
which is to use stamps and alcohol markers to draw directly onto your Gelli plate to create patterns, which are then  transferred to card by adding a layer of thin white paint to the Gelli plate  transfer the design created.

close up detail showing the printed card.
To create the frame I have taped together two Stitched Square Dies, and kept the middle insert, or frame that this creates.

the front panel of the easel card has been painted in pastel colours with acrylic paint.

Supplies Used:

Picket Fence Studios:  Unicorn Friend Stamp
Picket Fence Studios:  Unicorn Friend Die
Avery Elle:  Wonky Stitches Die
Avery Elle:   Star Frame Die
Lawn Fawn:   Stitched Squares Die Set

Thank you for stopping by to have a look and please drop into the store at Bizzy Becs there are some great new products for you to pre-order.

Until Next Time

Hello Peeps

Susan here from 

It's my turn this month to feature a stamp set I purchased from Bec

As soon as I saw these girls, I giggled and then had to have the stamp
both for the girls but also the cute sayings.

I used the stamp in full but I have seen it since trimmed down to two or three
Stamped with black Momento Ink 
onto XPress Blending card
Coloured with Copics

Some Wink of Stella used
some old Dark Room Door stamps also 
Scrap DP from SU

There is also a beauty with the girls doing craft together!

There's nothing better than cake…

Hi, Emily here sharing a card featuring just the cake part of the Curvy Girl Eats Cake stamp from Stamping Bella.

I’ve coloured the cake using watercolours before mounting it using on one of the cut outs from Whimsy Stamps’ Peekaboo Window 4 die.  I turned the whole die panel into a shaker panel to add some more interest to my card.  For my sentiment I’ve take a couple of the words from the sentiment stamp included with the Curvy Girl Eats Cake stamp plus one of the sentiments from the Penguin Poop from Whimsy Stamps.

Stamping Bella – EB789 Curvy Girl Eats Cake (cake and partial sentiment)
Whimsy Stamps – CWSD231 Penguin Poop (Happy Birthday sentiment)

Don’t forget to play along in our current challenge, the theme is always anything goes and you could win four digi stamps from the Bizzy Bec store.  And for more inspiration follow us over at Instagram at BizzyBec3

Hi everyone.

My turn today to drop in and share a card with you. 

I have used a die from Spellbinders as the focal for my card which  I gave to my husband on his birthday.

I die cut the frame three times in black cardstock and glued them together to create depth, adding the centre pieces back in.  I then die cut it again three times in the blue and pieced some of them into the frame and created the extra pattern on the centre of the die to create some interest.

The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions, love these,  all different sentiments,  for all occasions.

Supplies Used:

Spellbinders Kaleidoscope die - Optical Illusion
Taylored Expressions die and stamp - Simple Strips Background
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad - Black Soot

Thanks for looking - don't forget to join us with our Anything Goes Challenge - we just love seeing all your fabulous creations.

Until next time - Happy Crafting
