Happy Anniversary

Hi
Its my turn on the blog today and its also my wedding anniversary so 
I decided to make a card to give to Hubby.


I love this stamp set from Whipper Snapper designs called Taodally in Love.



I've kept the card really simple and coloured the stamped image with Copic Markers.

The shape cut out for the shaker box was made using the memory box die Cupid Heart and 
fun foam.

Supplies used:
Whipper Snapper stamp : Toadally in love
Memory box Die: Cupid Heart
Avery Elle: Wonky Stitches 
Lawn Fawn Die: Everyday Sentiment Banners

Thanks for stopping by

Merry Christmas To EWE

Hi Lou here to wish a very merry Christmas :)
I hope you are having a lovely day with your families and for those of you in Oz and NZ, I hope your BBQs are hot and the weather warm.

When I saw this Baah Humbug Christmas stamp and dies set I knew they would be perfect for sending out this years Christmas Salutations.


I stamped the images with alcohol marker friendly ink then die cut with the corresponding dies.
Once they were cut I coloured them and glued them down.
The sheep is adhered with foam tape to add dimension.

I added the bakers twine and drew lines around the white mat to finish the card.

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you are having a fabulous Christmas Day.

Holly with Reindeer

Hi all, 
Christmas is just around the corner.  Almost time to have all those 
Christmas cards made and ready to post.


There's something especially cute about Holly with Reindeer from 
Bizzy Bec's Christmas Collection of Digi Stamps. 
You may have noticed sometimes I like to create scenes.
The background Embosser is a  Cuttlebug - Snowflakes
PoppyStamps - Curbside Mailboxes
Cheery Lynn - Victorian Picket Fence
Impression Obsession - Snowflakes
CottageCutz Elites Die - Merry Christmas (resized a little)
Digi Stamp image was coloured with Copics and Gel Pens and fussy cut .
The white around Holly's outfit is done with Stampendous - Fuzzy Fun Flock

Have a great weekend.
Crafty Hugs, Carol

Layering dies - Memory Box Glowing Candles Die

Hi again everyone - Shaz here, with another tutorial!
This time on layering dies. You can find more details on my blog here.
I bought this die  some time ago - Memory Box Glowing Candles (available Bec has it at a really great price over here!). Saw a great card with it - here,and this one has a video if you want to watch it!

Cut three different shades of cardstock, gold, red and green. Added double sided tape on the back of card first.
Remove the tape layers with pricking tool, remove the die pieces you want in other colours on the top - gold layer first, as shown.
Added red to candles centres and centre of the flame which is also red.
Removed the gold leaves, adding the green on top.
Cut the top two colours of red and gold stems off the edges. Under the layers, adhere the green so it shows green stems. Add red bling for holly berries.
Stamp is from Our Daily Bread "Joy to the world" stamp set (ODB stamps are available from Bizzy Bec's upon request). Gold embossed, added die cut centre from Spellbinder, inked lightly around edge in gold.
Spellbinder die, I bought from Bec, is cut in gold - 5 x 7 Heirloom Legacy, a gorgeous die and great size.
Thanks so much everyone for popping over and saying hi, hope you enjoyed this card, as much as I did! Think might try another colour-way!!
May God bless your day,
Shaz in Oz.x

Make a Wish....

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

For this card I wanted an oceany feel to compliment my image.  I die cut a circle through the two top layers  using a die from Lawn Fawn - Large Stitched Circles, then die cut two circles with a Memory Box Die - Shaker Circles (not currently listed in store), these were then nestled inside the circle to create the illusion of a Porthole.  I then attached small pearls around the centre.

For my image I have used a stamp from My Besties called Steampunk Mermaid Dreams (not currently listed in store), which is so cute and have coloured her with Copic Markers.
I have inked part of the background which was stencilled  and then coloured with Distress Inks in Evergreen Bough and Salty Ocean (not currently listed in store).  I have also used Frantage Shabby Blue embossing enamel for some of the background stamping, together with Momento London Fog for other stamping.

The sentiment is a die from Penny Black and is called Celebrations.





Please if you see something you like and it is not currently listed in store, pop an email to Bec and if it is possible she can get it into store for you.

Thanks for looking, have a fabulous week.

Happy Crafting

added a few details with dimensional drops and simple layering.


Supplies used: 
Stamp: Penny Black - Collage Of Wishes.
Dies: Memory box- Stitched Layered Squares
Lawn Fawn -  Everyday Sentiment Banners
Frantic Stamper_ Double Diamond Card Panel

Wish Big with Lou

Hi, Lou  here to today to share my Bizzy Bec's DT project with you.

For this card I aimed to make a quick and easy shaker card,  ummmmmm, so didn't turn out that way.
I will share a tip with you that I learnt this week as I decided to change.  DO NOT use mono glue or Tacky glue for shaker cards.  It does not dry properly and remains sticky or tacky.  So your sequins will stick to any of the mono or tacky glue that has slipped out from the layers.

I ended up taking my card to pieces and salvaging the image to start again.

Here is the finished card....

All the items I used that are available from Bec's are pre-order.
Product from Bizzy Bec's with links.....

Penny Black Wish Big clear stamp set (which is on special at the moment with free shipping in Australia)

I coloured my image with Letraset Promarkers.

Thanks loads for dropping by

Joy Flight

Hello Fellow Crafters
Today I thought I'd make a man's card and create a scene.

How I made the card:
The blue background was achieved by sponging with a cloud stencil.
Grassy area I used green cardstock sponged a little and for the hills:
Memory Box - Golf club Landscape (I cut the flag off and added a couple more trees).
Die Namics - Rolling Hills
Memory Box - Puffy Clouds (sponged)
Frantic Stamper - Bi Plane
Memory Box - Flying Birds (BB used to have them)
One bird is from Impression Obsession - Sea Birds
Happy Birthday from PoppyCraft dies - Happy Birthday Balloon
I drew and coloured and cut the rocks out and pasted them.
Enjoy your week and happy crafting.
Hugs Carol

Elizabeth Crafts Design - Thinking of You

Hullo there everyone, Shaz here! Time to share with you another DT post. Trying the use of positive and negative of a word die again. I have two of these beautiful dies by Quietfire design for Elizabeth Crafts - one is a Happy birthday and the other is Thinking of you! I love these dies, because they are calligraphic and they cut so beautifully!

First card is using the negative space
1. Adhered the black background onto a sheet of double sided tape, added the floating black pieces in middle of letters I had saved when I cut the die.
2. Added the Cosmic Shimmer gilding flakes, Egyptian gold, pressing it well into sticky backed paper.
3. Then die cut a gold Spellbinder Gold Labels Four die (not on site but available from Bec, her Spellbinders are amazing prices!).
4. Embossed the black label with the same die to get the outline to hand cut around the inside shape of the die and popped it up on the gold. Matted it on handmade black and gold Chinese paper.
Added the black die cut to the sheet, then die cut the coloured gloss card with Spellbinder Pierced rectangles.
By adding it it before die cutting it became embedded in the gloss card and really looked great!
Also meant it wasn't easily going to come unstuck on glossy card, double bonus! Mounted it on black, then
 added ribbon and hessian or burlap strip underneath.
 That's it for today... I really appreciate all of you who call by to say hi!
