Lamb of God stamp set

Welcome to another release by Beccy Muir. The Lamb of God  can be had as a digital set or a clear stamp set. It is a perfect image for Christmas and not only for card making but for home deco as well.
You will find this and many other stamp sets in Beccy's Place Store.

Both my cards were made with the digital stamp set of Lamb of God. They were printed onto mixed media paper and coloured with watercolours.  I do love these images.

Sorry I have not been around much. Skipper and work has been keeping me busy. She is doing well on her new medication but her age is starting to creep up on her. 

Thank you for the visit and will be back online soon.

Nutcracker digital stamp set

The digital stamp set 'The Nutcraker'  is the latest release from Beccy Muir. This is a great set of digital images and sentiments for Christmas. You can find this and many other stamps (digital and polymer) in Beccy's Place Shop.

I printed the two images, from the Nutcracker set,   onto mixed media paper and then coloured them with alcohol markers and pencils. They were both fussy cut and one was made into a card and the other a bookmark. The background for the card is a paper pad from The Works and the bookmark was handmade. I did print the images quite large, the card is A5. 

Thank you for your visit.

Festive Baubles stamp set

This month's polymer stamp release from Beccy Muir is called 'Festive Baubles'. This set of stamps and sentiments are great and you will use them year after year.  You will find this set and many other in Beccy's Place Shop.

The 'Festive Baubles' stamps lend themselves to different styles of cards as you can see from my samples. They stamps perfectly and I loved colouring the images with watercolours. Many of the dies used I purchased from The Works. I used mixed media paper to stamp the images on, really like how this paper works with watercolours. 

Thank you for looking and have a great day.

Christmas Cardinal digital stamps

Time for another new release from Beccy Muir. This set of digital stamps and sentiments is called ' Christmas Cardinal'.  Anyone would love these images and they are so easy to colour. You will find this 'Christmas Cardinal' set and many other in Beccy's Place Shop

I printed the images onto a sheet of mixed media card and left it to dry. The images were then coloured using watercolours and I had no problem with bleeding of the printed lines. 

Thank you for your visit. 

Note on Skipper: She is doing well at the moment. The medication is working and she is in great voice. lol

Have a blessed day.

The Front Gate

The final release by Beccy Muir at Beccy's Place is this beautiful digital set called ' The Front Gate'. The images really appealed to me. 

My first thought when I saw the images from 'The front gate ' digital set was to watercolour them. I printed both images on A4 watercolour paper and let them dry. Once dried I used watercolours (pans) to colour both images and then mounted them on black mounts to put in frames.  The sentiments are really lovely. I have also made cards with these images so they are perfect for that as well.

Please have a look at Beccy's Place Blog for more inspiration.

Emu Parade

This week's release from Beccy Muir at Beccy's Place is this fun clear stamp set called 'Emu Parade'. The images in this set are really fun and would put a smile on anyone's face!

My first project with the Emu Parade stamps is the canvas. I stamped the larger image onto white card and cut it out once coloured. The canvas was coloured and decorated after the image was applied. I think it would make a fun little gift for someone. 
The other two cards were made with the second image stamp. They were stamped and spritzed and then coloured. They were next cut out and mounted as shown. 

Please have a look at Beccy's Place Blog for more inspiration.

Oil pastel painting

It's been a very busy time recently. Thankfully is responding to the antibiotics but she will need some more. We are thankful is still with us and enjoying life.

Doing a craft fair  for the Cat's Protection held  at the St Andrews Centre in Histon (Cambridgeshire)  on Saturday 17th November  from 10am. If you are in the area do please come and say hi. 

This is my third painting using Snnelier  oil pastels on canvas. Decided to take Ms Marples suggestion and painted a clove of garlic. I think it will work well with the pepper and lemon.

Entering this in Paint Party Friday

Have a wonderful day.

The images in all three cards were printed onto white card and coloured with alcohol markers and pencils. They were cut out with dies and  added to the cards. I used various dies, embossing folders and patterned papers. 

Hope you like them.

Bit of zing for your day

You would think that taking a photo of a painting was easy but I seem to struggle with this simple task!  This is my latest canvas using Sennelier oil pastels. I do love how creamy these pastels are and they blend beautifully.  My plan is to do three painting for my kitchen, the pepper was the first. Not sure what fruit or veg to do for the third one as yet. 

Skipper is improving, she had antibiotics and steroids which seem to be working.  She is still keeping us on ours toes. lol
