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

Dragon's Egg- Through The Purple Haze

This little dragon is from Morgan's Art World and is called Silvertrace Baby Dragon in Egg. Click on the link to find this digi.
I coloured the dragon using my Copic Markers:
Dragon: YG11,G85, G24, YG99, G46, Y11, Y26, E15
Egg: E81, W series, YG91
Background: BG 000, YR31, E25, E15, E47, E89
I cut the digi out using a Spellbinder's die. The card in the background is Kraft Core which was embossed with Taylored Expressions 'Bubbles' folder before being sanded. Frayed Burlap finished my layers.
I hope you will join in this fortnight's 'Anything Goes' challenge at Through The Purple Haze,

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

Polkadoodles Challenge- Floral Frenzy

The new challenge at Polkadoodles Challenge Blog is Floral Frenzy.
I have used floral paper, a digi and embellishments from the NEW Winnie Sprinkles Springtime CD.
The embellishments are easy to resize using your computer.

I printed out Winnie to colour using my Copic Markers.
Blue: B21, B91, B34, B97
Green: YG11, YG 82
Skin: E00, E11, R20
Hair: YR12, YR15, YR14, E19, E18, E79

From another patterned paper I cut a narrow backing strip and punched it using Martha Stewart's Daisy Rings Border Punch. A piece of ribbon finished it off.

The Open Road- Bizzy Bec's Challenge

My card today features stamps from Darkroom Door's Classic Motorcycles Collection . There are five bikes and captions in the set so heaps to choose from!

I started by die cutting a tag and then inking it with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. I stamped the image using black Archival Ink and then added some twine to the tag. 
The background used an Alterations embossing folder. I used core card so that I could sand it back and have some colour variation. The other side is page out of a map book.
I had some bronze metal corners from Bizzy Bec's Store and decided to make cogs to match these. I cut them from black cardstock using two different Memory Box Dies- Steampunk Corner and 
Antique Gear Set. Bec is able to order these in for you from the store link here. They have had gilding wax rubbed over them to make them look metallic.
Don't forget you can make your own paper creation and add it to Bizzy Bec's April Challenge by clicking the link here- you could win a mystery die!
