Sugar and Spice


Can you believe just how close we are to Christmas. If you are like me and have not really started on your cards as yet, then this beautiful 'Sugar and Spice' photopolymer stamp set by Beccy Muir is a must have. The images are adorable and very easy to colour, so you can have a bunch done in no time.

My first card, I stamped the large image from the 'Sugar and Spice' stamp set and coloured it with water soluble pencils. Then sprayed it with a layer of glitter. The  blue background layer was make with stencils, embossing folder and pastels. The yellow layer was created by stamping with a gold paint and then adding various shades of yellow inks.

The second card was simple. I stamped the images on a white card and coloured them. The cut two windows out of the blue card layered it. Added some snowflakes with glitter paint using a stencil. The sentiment and both images are from the 'Sugar and Spice' stamp set.

Hope you visit Beccy's Place Blog for more inspiration.

Peace and Joy

Time for a look at another new digital set by Beccy Muir, this one is called 'Peace and Joy'. As with all the digital sets from Beccy Muir, you get the black and white images as well as the coloured ones in the set, along with sentiments. 

For my first card I used the black and white image from the Peace and Joy digital set and printed it on white card. The sentiment was also printed onto white card. The image was coloured with pencils and layered onto a painted and embossed background. 

The second card I used the pre-painted images and flipped on and added the sentiment. They were then printed and layered onto the background. It's a really easy card to make if you are in a hurry. Or like me you have not made your Christmas cards as yet. :)

Do visit Beccy's Place blog for more inspiration and you will find this stamp set and many more in her SHOP.

Aussie Christmas clear stamp set

Beccy Muir has once again designed some super fun clear photo-polymer stamps for Christmas. This set, 'Aussie Christmas' , has such cute images and fun sentiments. You can find this stamp set and more on Beccy Muir's shop

In the first card ,I used the kangaroo image from the Aussie Christmas set. The image was stamped in black and coloured with pencils. The sentiment is also from the Aussie Christmas set. The background layer was made by rubbing a red peal paint through a stencil. Once it was dry it was embossed with a leaf embossing folder. The ribbons were added after and layered onto the white card. 

My second card I tried something a bit different. I stamped and coloured the image and sentiment (Aussie Christmas stamp set) and then used a glitter paste and a star stencil to add a sparkly layer over the image. In real life is looks really interesting. The image was added to patter paper and edges inked with brown ink. Added the stars for some extra sparkle. :)

Hope you like the card and do take a few minutes to check Beccy's Blog for more inspiration.

Magnolias Stamp set hanger

This is a very different project from the previous two using the Magnolias stamp set by Beccy Muir. You can find the Magnolias stamp set on Beccy Place shop and more inspiration on Beccy Muir's blog.

This little mixed media hanger was a lot of fun to make. The wooden heart came from The Works in Royston. The fist layer was done by spraying several colours of spray inks onto the primed wood. Once dried different pastes and stencils were used to decorate it. The sentiment is a stencil using screen printing ink. One of the beautiful image from the Magnolias stamp set was stamped and coloured  with water colours and cut out. 

Thanks for the visit.

Magnolias stamp set

Time to showcase the stunning new set of photo polymer stamps from Beccy Muir. These beautiful  images are from the set called ' Magnolias'. You will love stamping and colouring the images in this set and you can find it in Beccy's Place shop. There are more inspiration on Beccy's place blog

These are two projects I have made with the 'Magnolia' stamp set. The first one is a large 8x8 card. The background was done with and embossing folder and various inks and embossing powder. The large die cut is a Tattered lace die. The beautiful magnolia image was stamped and coloured with water colours. Love how it stands out against the green.

The second card was a bit more simple. I stamped two of the flower images from the Magnolias set onto white card. I coloured the flowers and backgrounds with watercolours and layered them onto a pattern paper and attached to the card base. 

Thanks for looking.
