Thank you Tag....

Hi everyone, just popping in today to share with you a little Thank You tag I have made to go onto a gift that I am delivering on Tuesday.


I have used lots of different goodies to create the tag and I have listed below the items that can be preordered from Bizzy Becs online store.



First I applied Texture paste through my stencil Heartwood by  Memory Box then when it was dry I applied Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads in Mustard Seed, Carved Pumpkin and Candied Apple.

Other elements used are Dressform Duo die from Die-Versions which together with the ribbon was an element from an old Card Kit from Bizzy Becs.

The gold heart  is a Sizzix Thinlit Die - Scribbles and Splat and the gold Thank You font is also from Sizzix  - Celebrate (this is not listed in store but if available can be ordered -  just email Bec) .
To finish off the tag I added lace, flower  and bling elements from Card Kit No 8 

Thanks for looking, have a fabulous week.

Until next time, Happy Crafting

Make A Wish...

Hi everyone.

We are currently enjoying the first week of school holidays here in Perth and today it is  overcast with light rain, so it is a perfect day to be inside and be creative.

Today I would like to share with you my card in a CAS style. 

I have used dies that are available to preorder via Bizzy Becs Store:

Dragonflies - Impression Obsession 
and
Celebrations - Penny Black





To create the coloured background for the sentiment and dragonflies I used a piece of watercolour paper and spritzed it with a Dylusion  Ink Sprays in the following colours:
Vibrant Turquoise
Crushed Grape
Lemon Zest
Bubblegum Pink
Fresh Lime

Then when it was dry I just choose the colours that I wanted on my card and die cut each element.

The ribbon used is from Becs latest Card Kit No 8.

The bling on the dragonflies and the card are from Kaiser and are from my own stash, together with the gold sticker.

There are some fabulous new items to see in the store so pop on over and check them out, also our latest Anything Goes Challenge is in its second week so please join in, we  love to see your wonderful creations.

Thanks for looking, until next time
Happy crafting

Take Time ....

Hi everyone, today I am sharing with you a card made for the new challenge that has started today over at Bizzy Becs.

I have been playing with my Darkroom Door stamps which have not been off the shelf for a while now, so thought it was time for them to be used again.



I used the Frame Stamp which I then coloured with Walnut Stain Distress Inks and then using the Coffee Stain Stamp and Black Soot stamped randomly onto the frame.  I still have some Tim Holtz  Rock Candy crackle paint which I then painted over the frame.  When the frame was dry I lightly inked the edges with Walnut Stain.

The Clock and the sentitment are from the Tick Tock Set.  The clock face was inked with Old Paper and also painted with crackle paint, then when dry I inked the surface with Walnut Stain.
After stamping the senitment I lightly inked the background with Antique Linen distress ink.

The Happy Birthday senitment is an old set from Stampin Up - Basic Phrases.

String, Feather, Hessian Ribbon are from my own stash.


These items are available to preorder via Bizzy Becs
Darkroom Door Stamps - Tick Tock, Coffee Stain and Frame Stamp
Lawn Fawn Die - Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables

"Remember if it is not listed just drop Bec an email and she will see if  can be ordered in for you."


Thanks for dropping by.

Until next time - Happy Crafting
