Woodland Whimsy

I really love little fox images and this stamp from Wild Rose Studios called Mummy Fox and Baby was so cute I just had to colour it! 
I wanted to create a woodland background so used some cloud patterned paper for the background and then used Memory Box- Medium Forest Archway on top. The sentiment was from Tim Holtz Thinlits series- Celebration Words. You can check in store for availability as Bec stocks this brand of dies. 
Finally, I foam mounted the fox image which has been coloured with Copic markers.


Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will enter your creations into the monthly challenge for Bizzy Becs. You might like to also check out all the great specials in store to celebrate her birthday!

Born to be Wild

My card this week is made using the Darkroom Door background stamp 'Zebra' and 
Wild Africa Vol 1 both of these are currently on special over at Bec's Store.

The background stamp would look great stamped on orange card too for a tiger background.
The image was coloured using Copic markers and edged with distress stain.

I used the Tim Holtz  Sizzix Thinlits Die Set -Mixed Media 4 for another little layer.



Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,

On The Wild Side

Darkroom Door have some gorgeous stamp sets featuring African Animals and these are available for purchase from Becs store. I have to say I am really impressed with the quality of the image and the detail. This card has used two stamps- the lion image and the words Wild Africa. I think I will experiment with this stamp further using some of my dies but the image is gorgeous to use as a feature on its own. This one was coloured using Copic markers and I used Distress Ink around the edge of all layers to finish them nicely. 


You can view a range of Darkroom Door Stamps on store page here and they are 25% off at the moment. There is a great range perfect for Fathers Day!!

Bunny and Butterfly

It has been so nice to pull out some craft supplies and make a card this week. I have not crafted much this past year but am looking forward to getting back into the swing of it. Sitting in my supplies were some beautiful products from Bizzy Becs that I had not used yet.
The first of these was the embossing folder 'dotted lattice' from Taylored Expressions. It made a great textured background for the 'Bunny and Butterfly' image from Wild Rose Studio. Both of these products are available through Bec's store. I also Spellbinders 'Heart Circles' for the green circle- Bec is able to order in Spellbinders products for you and does have a range of products from this company in store.
I coloured the image using Copic markers and then cut it out before foam mounting it on the card. 
I hope I have given you a little inspiration. Looking forward to seeing your entries in the challenge- you can enter using the link here.

January Challenge- BizzyBecs

Happy New Year, Everyone! 2017 is going to be a wonderful one. I have set myself a goal to make more time each week to create. I have so many ideas in my head and need to see more of them become a real, completed projects.
I am off to a start with my inspiration card for this month's Anything Goes challenge at Bizzy Becs. If you have been over to the store site lately you will see a new section of Bizzy Bec's Choice of products at an amazing 30% off!!!
I always have such a hard time deciding which dies or stamps to get next but I have tried to plan ahead for both Valentine's Day and Easter this year.
My card below uses the IndigoBlu Stamps 'Live, Laugh, Love' again. Last time I used these stamps I masked my design but this time I stamped on white card using Memento Ink, cut out the layers I needed and created an arrangement using tape and foam tape. I coloured the design after it was constructed using Copic markers.


The sentiment is also from this stamp set. I cut the sentiment out using a Spellbinders gold die- Labels 4. The white card was inked using Distress Ink in both Antique Linen and Frayed Burlap.
I love a stamp set I can use for lots of different projects!
What will you create for the challenge this month?
I look forward to seeing your projects.
Happy crafting, Jackie x

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Southern Girls- Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination- Anything Goes

December with Bizzy Bec's Papercraft

Summer is here and the weather is warming up. I love going to the beach and this collection of red rubber seashell themed stamps will be perfect for so many scrapbooking pages as well as cards I know my set will be well used!
The  'Seashell' stamp collection is by Darkroom Door and is available by clicking the link here.
I began this card by cutting a scrap of cream Bazzill cardstock and adding blue watercolour paint to add colour to the centre of the card.
Next I distressed the edges of the cardstock. 
On separate cream card I used Rich Cocoa Memento ink to stamp out the images. The images were quick to cut out and I love how they have shading- this means you will have dimension in your colouring even if you only use one colour.
I used foam tape to adhere the shells to the background. I curved the shell sand varied the height /layers of the foam to add dimension.


I hope you have some time during this busy month to get some crafting time in, Jackiex

I had lots of fun colouring this gorgeous mermaid digi from Broken Fairy Designs. It is called Jelly Walk and you can find the link here.


I coloured the image with Copic markers and then added some Waterfall Stickles over the top for a little bit of sparkle. The edge of the card is inked with Mowed Lawn distress ink and the die in the background is by Spellbinders. I added little pearls to the edges.
I hope you have time to make something wonderful for this fortnight's challenge at 
TTPH- Add Embellies.
