for you

Hi There! and thanks for joining me.
 Today  I would like to share with you a card. I made this one for my Mum's Birthday and 
I wanted to have a classic look but still with happy bright colours.




I have sponged the background in Peacock Feathers distress ink, and layered the Memory Box Elliana Background Die cut on top.

I have started using Neenah cardstock for just about everything and love the results.

The poppy stamps are from Indigo Blue Poppycock set, (which Bec can pre-order for you) and
these have been coloured with Copic Markers.

The "for you" sentiment is for Lawn Fawn and is from the Gleeful Gardens set stamped onto the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiments Banners  die cut.


pop into Bizzy Becs on-line store! you still have time to take advantage of the August savings offer!


see you next time

Flower Festival CAS with Lou

Hi, Lou here today to share a Clean and Simple but effective card with you.
I normally do layered cards with a cute image in the middle and I would say that cute and layered is definitely my "style".  However sometimes the person or mail restrictions just don't lend themselves to a frou frou card.
This is when CAS cards come into their own for me.
I decided that a simple but pretty Thank You card was what was required for this post.
So here it is....


I have used Flower Festival by Penny Black for the image,the set has a lovely selection of flowers to choose from.  Since I adore yellow I chose the marigolds. I stamped the image onto Neenah Cardstock and coloured it up with Shimmering H2O watercolours.
The die I used is similar to the Frantic Stamper Accessory Words #3 die.
I popped up the butterfly with some foam tape to finish.

I hope I have inspired you to try something different and ste out of your comfort zone.

Lou

Hello....

Hi everyone.

Just popping in today to share with you my latest card.

I have used a stamp from Gorjuss -  "I Gave You My Heart"  which is unfortunately not listed in the store at the moment but may still be available if you wish it to be ordered in for you.  There are however lots of other Gorjuss Stamps listed in store at the moment.  The stamp has been coloured with Copic Markers.



I have stamped the image onto a Memory Box Die base frame called Cherise Label and then matched it with its matching die,  Tiffany Frame.  Both of these dies are old releases.

The bling accents, patterned paper and flowers are from Card Embellishment Kit no 8, which is currently out of stock but should be back soon.  The Hello Sentiment is a die  from Penny Black

Remember if there is anything you see that is not listed, Bec is happy to try and source for you, just send her an email.

Thanks for looking and have a fabulous week.

Happy Crafting

The sweet wishes wording has been embossed with a soft pink embossing enamel. all the elements have been layered up and some are set on foam tape.

die cut shapes :  Avery Elle Sweet scallops

Flying High

Hi, Lou here today to share a birthday card with you, made with wonderful products from Bizzy Bec's Store.

I had loads of fun with this card, although there was a touch and go moment which I will tell you about shortly...


I started with a 6x6 base which i then sponged with dye ink to make the sky background.
I then stamped Ramona and her teddy by Stamping Bella on to Neenah Heavy Weight Cardstock with memento ink.  I then coloured up my image with my promarkers, and here came the touch and go, the blue part was originally pink, but when I had finished the image I realised how hideous the pink looked with the rest of the colours so I coloured over it with blue markers.  Luckily it turned out ok :)
I then fussy cut the image and put aside.
Next I cut my Memory Box Puffy Clouds and Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillsides.  I inked the edges on the hills to give them some definition.
I then stuck everything down on the inked card base and drew a frame in with white pen.
Then I decided it needed a sentiment so I embossed Happy Birthday with Lawn Fawn Big Scripty Words.
I hope you get a little inspiration to make a scene of your own on a card.
Lou

Shaker Card + Elizabeth Crafts Happy Birthday Die

Hi Shaz here!
Another tutorial - shaker cards using positive and negative of a word die -  happy birthday die! Two cards for the price of one!
The **Elizabeth crafts Happy Birthday word die, a stunning die, very easy to use positive and negative.  Also using ** Cottage Cutz Stitched ovals.
Step 1: Die cut out the centre of the shaker card with die cut of choice. On underside add the acetate for the shaker bits to go under. OPTIONAL: on top put a frame cut from same size oval and next one up and mount with double sided mounting tape, cut to size and pop it up on the outside. see below.
Step 2 Completed front layer of card, ready with acetate, frame + embossed front sheet.
Step 3: Add double sided tape to back of *inky glossy card piece for word die *(more details on it on my blog post).
Step 4:
After cutting out the word die add the sheet of photo paper to snippet of white card. Carefully lift off the positive of the word die to expose the intact negative of the die on lower layer.
I have cut another word die cut out of white craft foam (added double sided tape on the back of it also), for the happy birthday die.
Lay the positive layer on top of foam cut so it pops up nicely on the card.
Step 5: I decided I needed to match the colours of the die cut with the background for shaker, so really mixed media here! Some torn up tissue paper, glued on scrap of card, coloured with similar toned sprays.
Step 6: Here are all the shaker elements in the inside of the foam layer, it was die cut with inside size die and then adhered with tape and non tacky glue to the back. I say non-tacky cos tacky glue can stick to sequins etc.
Step 7. Add seal on back of shaker, I used some anti static powder on back of the acetate, before adding sequins etc. The seal on back of foam needs to be complete before turning it over.
Completed card 1, also used embossing folder by *Taylored Expressions called Snow fall, *available from Bec.- although not on site. I actually embossed it from both ends to extend the embossing.
Card 2: You probably can't see it but used *Spellbinder Pierced Rectangles die set to cut out the photo paper. Just used the pierced section to give a pierced edge.
Thanks so much for popping over for a peek and chat. You really are all appreciated I do hope this has been a help to you.

Once Upon a Time - Roses...

Hi Karen here, today I am popping in to share with you my new card.

I have been playing again with the Blue Butterfly Digi Stamps from the store.  I have been wanting to enlarge one of the girls faces for a while now.  The image I choose is from the Once Upon a Time Collection and is called Roses.  You can find her and her friends here.




She has been coloured with Copics and Prisma Pencils and was such fun to colour.  I have also used Card Embellishment Kit No. 8 and she has been printed onto Copic Paper (Bec has a similar product in store Neenah Cardstock) and  then die cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities die - Fleur De Lis Squares.  The sentiment is a freebie and available here from the store blog.

The stocktake sale is still on but only for a limited time so drop by the store for all your crafty needs.

Until next time, Happy Crafting.

Karen
