More flowers

Card one

card two

As promised here are the two other cards made with the beautiful Geums stamp set by Beccy Muir. I so admire Beccy Muir's drawing skills, just wonderful! 

For card one, I used the main Geum image for the Geums set. The image was stamped and embossed with white embossing powder. Water colours were used to colouring in the image. It is very different from the card for yesterday and the second card for today. It shows how versatile this Geums stamps set can be. 

The second card today was a bit more involved to create. The background was made first using the single flower head stamps and one of the sentiment from the Geums set. I used two different shades of dye ink. Once dried I used a die to cut a patter into the middle of the card. The main flower image from the Geums set was stamped and coloured with pencils and cut out. Various dies were used to make the bow and layers for the sentiment. 

Hope that my creations have inspired you to at least take a look at Beccy's Blog to see what the rest of the DT have created with this Geums set.

Would like to enter the first card in

Time for some flowers!

I adore floral images and this photopolymer set of stamps called 'Geums' is right up my street. This is Beccy Muir's latest photopolymer stamp release, Geums

For this card I used the main image from the Geums set. It was stamped onto cream card and coloured with pencils. The images was outlined with an alcohol marker and cut out with an oval die. The background was done with an embossing folder and lace and other dies were added. 

There are two more cards made with the Geums stamp set I will be sharing with you.
Please find this set and many other stamps on Beccy's Place shop and inspiration on Beccy's Place blog.

Splashed out!

Good morning, we have sunshine!!!  Sharing this card  made using the free stamps and splash die which were free with  Papercraft Essential magazine. The reed die I bought on Amazon. 
 This is a card for a friend and I hope she will like it. 

For those who were asking, Skipper is doing much better at the moment. She loves the warmer weather and has been out in the garden this weekend.  She will be 18 years old next month and I am trying to figure out how to make it special for her. If you have any ideas do leave me a message below.

First Day Jitters

Good morning and welcome to the release of this versatile digital stamp set by Beccy Muir! This set is called 'First Day Jitters' and has some really useful and beautiful images. 
You can find this and many other digital and photopolymer stamps in Beccy's Shop.

Please have a look at Beccy's Place Blog for more inspiration for the rest of the DT.

You can see that my two cards made from 'First Day Jitters' are very different. You will find many used for these images, I am sure.

For my first card, I combined the bag and the coffee mug and printed in black and white. The images were coloured with pencils and cut out with a die. The sentiment was printed and cut out with another die. You can have a lot of fun playing around with these images. 

My second card I printed the books and the sentiment and coloured them with pencils. The image was then layered onto coloured card. 

I promise you will find some many used for the image in the 'First Day Jitters ' digital stamp set.

Good luck card

Was asked to make a card for someone changing jobs. I used the stamps from Beccy Muir's 'Smooth Seas' clear stamp set.  You can also get this set as a digital stamp. All the images and sentiments are from the set. The background paper was made using the stamps. The main image was stamped and coloured with pencils and so were the wheels.  Used my Scan'n'cut to fussy cut the wheels. Really pleased with how the card turned out and hope the recipient will like it.

Skipper and a bit of sewing.

Hope you are all enjoying your Easter bank holiday. For those who want to know, Skipper is doing much better. She has her meow back and would like to say thank you for all your concern. This was taken a few days ago when we has some sunshine, she fund the almost dead cat mint plant! 
She is still sneezing but hopefully when the warmer weather arrives she will be back to 100%.

After church yesterday I actually did a bit of sewing. I needed a new neck pillow for reading in bed so instead of spending £20 I made one! I used the pillow case to draw the pattern and filled it with beads for an old bean bag. Really pleased with how it turned out. Did lean that next time leave the opening at one end and not the middle. lol

Have a great day and God bless!

Walk by Faith digital stamp set

Welcome to another release by Beccy Muir. This time it's a beautiful digital set called ' Walk by Faith'. This is a very versatile set and can be used in my ways. You can find more inspiration from the rest of the design team on Beccy's Place Blog

For my first card I went large. Using a photo editing software the image from 'Walk by Faith' set was enlarged and printed onto white card. The image was then coloured (including the blue background) with alcohol markers and the pencils on top. The image was cut out using a die cut and layered. The background was done by embossing a piece of black card and then swiping metallic wax over the surface. The next layers were done using dies from Tattered lace. The card was then assembled as seen in the photo.

The second card made using the Walk by Faith digital stamp set was much simpler. The image from the Walk by Faith set was printed onto white card and then coloured with alcohol markers and pencils. The sentiment (also from the set) was printed onto white card. The image and sentiment were die cut and edged with brown marker and layered on a dark blue card base.
Two very different cards from this one set.

Skipper sure know how to keep us on our toes. Yesterday we had an unexpected visit to the Vet as she lost her voice! I know a cat that lost her meow. Turns out she has a sore throat and has been put on antibiotics. Hopefully she will now start eating better. She is bright and alert but unable to tell us what she wants. :(

Have a good day.

For all three cards, the images were stamped onto white card and coloured with alcohol markers (got these from Aldi). There were various dies and stencils using the cards. If you have any questions about how they were made please ask. Brain still not back to 100% with this cold.

Prehistoric Party last project

Good morning. This is my last project using the 'Prehistoric Party' digital stamp set by Beccy Muir.  I found this set to be so useful for different age groups. 

Made this canvas for a little girl using two of the main images from the Prehistoric Party set by Beccy Muir
Firstly I covered the canvas in purple and blue glimmer paint. While that was drying I printed and coloured two of the images from the Prehistoric Party set. Once coloured and cut out they were glazed with gloss medium. The sentiment was also printed from the 'Prehistoric Party set' and glazed as well. The letters came from The Works and I stencilled them with glimmer paints. The canvas was completed by stencilling flowers and leaves and then assembled. 

Really pleased with how it turned out.

More Pehistoric Party

Good morning. Hope that this day will be a great one for all. These are two more of my cards made with the adorable ' Prehistoric Party' digital stamp set by Beccy Muir.  It is a great set of big and little people. 

You can find 'Prehistoric Party' and many other stamps in Beccy's Place Shop

My first card was made by creating the topper in my photo-editing software. I combined one of the main  from the 'Prehistoric Party' images, the prints and the sentiment to create the topper. Once printed the image was coloured with pens and pencils and glitter pen. Different dies were used to add the leaves to the corner.

The second card was made by printing, colouring and cutting out one of the images from the Prehistoric Party stamp set. The background was done in tow parts.  The green was done with watercolours and leaves stencilled on. The grey card was embossed and then metallic wax was wiped over the surface.  The grey card was then layered onto the green and the main image on top. 

My brain is a still a bit fuzzy from this cold so forgive me if there is any mistakes in this post.
