A Little Bit Of Kite Flying

Hi Lou here with you on this drizzly, cold spring day.  At least it is in my part of the world.  A perfect day for crafting on the upside.

I am sharing my DT card for this month which uses the totally versatile,
extremely cute Lawn Fawn Yay, Kites stamp and Yay, Kites Lawn Cuts


For my card I decided to make a scene shaker card. 
I stamped the kite and clouds on the card base and coloured with Shimmering H20 paints, then I cut the glitter card for the frame and adhered the acetate to it.  I then added my foam tape to the base so it couldn't be seen and poured in the sequins and flattened them out so I could stick the frame and acetate on.
I then stamped and cut the "hello" and squirrel and glued them to the top.



The pic above shows the sequins all shaken out, cute hey?


Thanks loads for joining me today and I hope I have inspired you to make a shaker card of your own
Lou.

Watercolours + Embossed Darkroom Door Collage Stamp

Hi everyone - Shaz here, just popping in with quick post of some watercoloured poppies for Bizzy Bec's!
I bought from Bec this *Darkroom Door collage stamp, which I embossed in gold EP, and heat set. Then painted image in watercolour, using the Distress Inks, smooched on a ink block and on laminated sheet. * this stamp not on Bec's site, but she can get it for you! at a great price!
I really love this card. It looks wa-aaay better in real life, sadly sometimes photos never do a card justice this is one of them!
Used Glossy accents on poppy, mounting it on this gorgeous Our Daily Bread die set called "Lacey layered Square Dies" - it is square, but I extended it into rectangle (see tutorial on this here). It can be ordered from Bec.
T
he "smile' stamped greeting is also a greeting from Bec - Lawn Fawn "So much to say" a really great sentiment set!
Background designer paper - Paper Pad "Wild Rose Blackberry Lane", bought from Bec.
 Hope you've enjoyed this post, and it is good to be back again after my illness. Thank you everyone for encouragement, patience and support.

for you

Hi There! and thanks for joining me.
 Today  I would like to share with you a card. I made this one for my Mum's Birthday and 
I wanted to have a classic look but still with happy bright colours.




I have sponged the background in Peacock Feathers distress ink, and layered the Memory Box Elliana Background Die cut on top.

I have started using Neenah cardstock for just about everything and love the results.

The poppy stamps are from Indigo Blue Poppycock set, (which Bec can pre-order for you) and
these have been coloured with Copic Markers.

The "for you" sentiment is for Lawn Fawn and is from the Gleeful Gardens set stamped onto the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiments Banners  die cut.


pop into Bizzy Becs on-line store! you still have time to take advantage of the August savings offer!


see you next time

Flower Festival CAS with Lou

Hi, Lou here today to share a Clean and Simple but effective card with you.
I normally do layered cards with a cute image in the middle and I would say that cute and layered is definitely my "style".  However sometimes the person or mail restrictions just don't lend themselves to a frou frou card.
This is when CAS cards come into their own for me.
I decided that a simple but pretty Thank You card was what was required for this post.
So here it is....


I have used Flower Festival by Penny Black for the image,the set has a lovely selection of flowers to choose from.  Since I adore yellow I chose the marigolds. I stamped the image onto Neenah Cardstock and coloured it up with Shimmering H2O watercolours.
The die I used is similar to the Frantic Stamper Accessory Words #3 die.
I popped up the butterfly with some foam tape to finish.

I hope I have inspired you to try something different and ste out of your comfort zone.

Lou

Hello....

Hi everyone.

Just popping in today to share with you my latest card.

I have used a stamp from Gorjuss -  "I Gave You My Heart"  which is unfortunately not listed in the store at the moment but may still be available if you wish it to be ordered in for you.  There are however lots of other Gorjuss Stamps listed in store at the moment.  The stamp has been coloured with Copic Markers.



I have stamped the image onto a Memory Box Die base frame called Cherise Label and then matched it with its matching die,  Tiffany Frame.  Both of these dies are old releases.

The bling accents, patterned paper and flowers are from Card Embellishment Kit no 8, which is currently out of stock but should be back soon.  The Hello Sentiment is a die  from Penny Black

Remember if there is anything you see that is not listed, Bec is happy to try and source for you, just send her an email.

Thanks for looking and have a fabulous week.

Happy Crafting

Karen
