Sweet Love card. Bizzy Becs Digi Stamp


Hello there

 Mandy here and it's  my turn to share a project with you

I have used one of Bec's Digi stamps to create my card.

My image is printed onto blending card and coloured with copic markers.

I Have used a deckle edge die to cut out my card base layers.

I have then used a blending brush to colour the edges of these layers with

Distress Oxide inks.

I have used a sparkle pen to add some shimmer to the wings 
as well as the die cut sentiment.

The Happy Everything sentiment was cut out of white card and coloured with
 Copic alcohol markers


Supplies used:

Bizzy Becs digi: Fairy of love 

Waffle Flower: Deckle Frame Die ( you will need to request)

Creative expressions : Happy Everything Die

I have a full list of all my copic markers on my blog.

I just want to say thank you for the opportunity to share my cards with you.

I have been on Becs design team for several years now and I have decided to

take a break.

 I'll still be around crafting away and perhaps will share a project with

you from time to time as a guest.

Take care

Mandy x

Thank you for

Sending Hugs with Avery Elle

Hi, Lou here with you today to share a happy 6x6 style card 

This is a bit of an eclectic card using all sorts of bits and bobs that came together pretty well in the end.

I used an Avery Elle stamp set called sending hugs and the corresponding die.  This set can be ordered from Bec by special request.
I will be honest and say that I don't usually buy the dies that go with stamp sets as I can usually cut the images out and spend the money on other stamp sets.  In this case though the dies are pretty cool as it allows the envelope in the set to be cut really easily to tuck the little critters inside.

 I finished the card with lots of enamel shapes and dots of liquid pearls.   
If you look closely you will see that my daughters cat actually walked over the card while it was drying but I thought it didn't look too bad and wasn't totally noticeable.

I coloured the image with my cheapy watercolour set, unfortunately the ink on the image disappeared so I restamped using stazon on the critters so the details showed.

The sentiment is from taylored expressions Simple strips birthday

thanks for popping by today and reminder that we are looking for a few DT members at Bizzy Becs 
You can find the details HERE
Have a great day

It's your day - Penny Black

 Hi everyone, Karen here.

Dropping in day today albeit a few days late to share my latest card - it has been so hot in my little craft space which has made it unbearable to sit in, so have very much enjoyed a few days that have been cooler and much better for crafting in my space.

For my card, I had a first time play with a Penny Black stamp that I have had for a while now.  It has the most cutest little stamps, which made it so hard to choose which one to start with.  I turned my card into a shaker and am loving how it turned out.

Supplies used:

Penny Black Transparent  Stamp - It's your day

Avery Elle Stamp & Die - Simply Said Hugs (by request)

Lawn Fawn Die - Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables

Lawn Fawn Die - Stitched Rectangle Frames

Copic Markers

Mouse: E31, E33 & W5

Balloon & Hat: RV00,RV02 & RV55

Mushroom: R24,R27,R37, E70, E71,E74

Grass: YG91,YG93, YG95

Dress my Crafts - Say it with  Heart Sequins

To create the shaker I cut four layers or the rectangle frame and glued 3 together, then inserted a piece of acetate and glued the top layer down.  One of the centre cutouts from the frame had a piece of patterned paper glued to it and then was attached to the Rectangle Stackable.  I placed a small amount of  "Say it with Hearts Sequins" from Dress My Craft onto the centre of the pattern paper and then glued the frame over the top.

Thanks for looking, hope you can join us for this months anything goes challenge.

Until next time - Happy Crafting
