If Dogs Could Talk- Bizzy Becs

The Taylored Expressions die and stamp set "If Dogs Could Talk" arrived in my mail box a few weeks ago and I had a chance to play with them over the weekend. I really love all the different expressions you can add to the dog. I think I will have to make up a card using each one. This is my first time of using Taylored Expressions stamps and I have to say they stamp beautifully with a nice clear image. Bec has a great range of these in her store at terrific prices.
I used Poppy Stamps "Celebrations Balloons" Dies and Die-Namics "Instaframe" die on my card.
The images were stamped with Black Archival Ink and coloured with Copic markers.
I lifted the frame up and some of the balloons using double sided foam tape. 

I hope I have given you some inspiration!

Gorjuss Girl- Shower of Love for BizzyBecs

The June challenge has begun over at Bizzybec's Challenge Blog. There is always a great monthly prize from the store. For June there will to be a lucky draw for the month for purchases from the store,too. Click the link here.
This month I have used a Gorjuss girl stamp colouring it with Copic markers. I then cut around the image using a die from the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles Collection.
I love the embossed background created with Taylored Expression's Raindrop Embossing Folder. Bec has great prices on these and I confess I had to buy the whole collection!
All paper pieces are inked with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.
It is stocktake time at the moment in the store and in this section there are many mulberry flowers similar to those I have used in my card.

I hope you are inspired to pop over to the store and check out the great range of products at terrific prices. 
Happy crafting, Jackie x

TTPH Challenge- Use a die/punch

There is a great new challenge over at Through The Purple Haze this fortnight. Use a die/punch in your creation and enter the challenge.
Our sponsor is SLS Lines. I am glad they are our sponsor as they were a new company to me and I have to say there are some great images to choose from. I will certainly be signing up for their emails.
The image I have used is Calavera Girl 2 Day of the Dead.

I coloured the digi image using Copic markers.
I used a die from the Spellbinders Gold Labels 4 to cut around the image and then inked the edges using Gathered Twigs Distress Stain. 
The black floral background is a Fiskars die which cuts and embosses beautifully.
The background paper is by Bo Bunny. The edges of this are also inked.
I hope you will be inspired to join in the challenge or stop by and be inspired by the many great entries.
Happy Crafting, Jackie x

May Inspiration for Bizzy Becs

I just loved the look of this cute stamp from Stamping Bella when I saw it in the Bizzy Becs store.
It is called "tiny townie Penelope has a pencil". The Hi sentiment is a separate stamp so you can use the image with other sentiments.
I stamped this rubber stamp using black Memento ink then coloured it using Copic markers.
I used my set of Memory Box Stitched Layer Circles to cut out the image and a complimentary backing circle before mounting them onto sanded core card embossed with a Sizzix Tim Holtz notepad folder.

Looking forward to seeing all the wonderful entries over at the challenge blog for Bizzy Becs where a great monthly prize is on offer.
Happy Crafting, Jackie x

Easel Card for Bizzy Becs

When I saw this stamp in the BizzyBec's Store I knew I wanted to add it to my collection. It is so cute and easy to match up with different papers by switching the colour of the icecream.
It is made of rubber so it's nice and durable.
I stamped the image onto blending card and then coloured it with Copic markers:
Pig: E51, E53, E11, E57
Ice Cream: RV63, RV52, RV02, YR21, E33, E17
Background: W2-5, B0000
Papers were from my stash. I fussy cut the chevrons and inked the edges of all paper with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. I cut out the image using Spellbinders Scalloped Oval Nesting Dies and then added a doily behind the die cut.
The sentiment came with the image and I added foam mounting tape to the sentiment piece to support the card once opened.
Don't forget there is a new  Anything Goes challenge for May over at
Thanks for stopping by, Jackie x
