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:

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

Fox On A Branch- Bizzy Becs

Looking back over my blog, I noticed a few foxes. I love the colour of their coats but they have not been welcome visitors to our chook yard!
Today's card for Bizzy Becs features a stamped image called Fox On A Branch from Wild Rose Studio. You can order it  from the store here.
I coloured the image using Copic markers.

The Hi sentiment was from the Phrase Set One by Spellbinders.
The other die I have used is a set of trees (turned sideways to look like branches). It is DIE310-WW fom Impression Obsession. Bec stocks items from both of these companies in her store so just contact her for availability.
I hope you will join in the November challenge where Anything Goes. The link is here.

TTPH challenges with Fabrika Fantasy

I have just loved sitting down and spending some time colouring the Werewolves Chieftain Colouring Page from Fabrika Fantasy. They have lots of detail in many of their digi images. I chose to make my image into a card ready for a friend who loves the supernatural. 

I coloured the image using Copic markers and some touches of metallic pen. I have been thinking this would be nice to do using some flower soft in the foliage so may have another play!
I hope you get a chance to check out the store and then enter the challenge over at Through The Purple Haze. It's a  favourite colour combo challenge this fortnight.

Spring is in the Air

 This stamp set from IndigoBlu makes me think of Spring with its beautiful collection of flowers leaves and winged creatures as well as some sentiments. They have lovely detail and are made of red rubber which means they can withstand heat and lots of different media well.
I used masking for this card making a mask for the bird and large flower to create a mini scene. I use stickynotes  for my masks  so that they stay in place.The thin paper  these are made of also makes them perfect.

The stamp set "Live, Laugh, Love" is available to buy from Bec's store following the link here. She also has some great Christmas stamps available to pre-order.
Don't forget to enter your creations in the monthly "Anything Goes" challenge here,too.

Hush Little Bunny Card for Bizzy Becs

Well, life on the home front has been a bit more hectic than normal but I am glad I've managed to have some time to create this month. I had some great new products arrive in the mail from Bec's store included some Gorjuss girl stamps. I used one of these for my inspiration piece this month.
The stamp set is called Hush Little Bunny and the frame, flowers, hearts and image are all from the set. I stamped the images using Archival Ink and stamped the flowers several times to create a ground level. The image was coloured using Prismacolor Pencils-I used lots of light layers to build up some depth. Highlights were with white gel pen and black for the eyes.
Flowers, lace and a bit of bling finished off my card.
I really like how big these stamp sets are- they are great for beginning colourists.

I hope you find time to enter the challenge this month for a chance to win a mystery stamp or die and if you are in need of more supplies don't forget all of the wonderful dies and stamps in Bec's Store.
Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting,
