Happy Birthday, Whipper Snapper!

My Birthday Card today for Bizzy Bec's features a cute mouse stamp from Whipper Snapper stamps called 'Bradstreet's Birthday'.
I used Memento ink to stamp the image and then coloured it using Copic markers.
I used a few different sizes in stitched frames to make my layers and also the LaLaLand die 'Heart Banner' and Spellbinders 'Phrase Set One' for the sentiment.

It was a nice, simple make- perfect for the lead up to Christmas which seems busy already!!
I hope you make time to enter the challenge for the store this month to be in the running for a prize. There is also a treasure hunt on the store site you can enter.

Poppy to Remember

I have had the gorgeous Flower Garden set of red rubber stamps for a while now and thought I might use the poppy from the set as Remembrance  Day draws near. 
The flower and the stem are separate so I made a little paper mask to overlay the two images.
The images were stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then coloured using Copic markers.
I used Spellbinders dies- Labels Twenty and Fancy Framed Tags Three as well as a Martha Stewart Punch for the border.
The textured background was made using Taylored Expressions 'Braided' embossing folder and all pieces were inked using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.

The dies and Stamps are available to order from Bizzy Becs Store.
Don't forget to enter the challenge this month.
Thanks for stopping by,

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
