Yay Kites

Hi, Louise here today to share with you a card made with the Lawn Fawn Yay Kites stamps and die sets.  These are available now for pre-order over at Bizzy Bec's shop.

This was my first time actually using a stamp set with a matching die and it was pretty simple.
My only tip would be use washi tape to hold the dies in place when cutting.

I coloured my images with markers and foam mounted some of them against the base of the card.

For the hills at the bottom of the card I used Stitched Hillside Borders also by Lawn Fawn

Thanks for joining me today and I hope you enjoyed my first post as a member of the Design Team  at Bizzy Becs :)

Card and Cupcake Box Set

Last year I was on a design team for a stamp illustrator and she asked me to make a project for her online magazine.
The magazine took nearly a year to go live and I was pretty disappointed that she hadn't let me know that she wasn't using my project or I could have posted it last year!
Anyway I will share it with you now and just to let you know the recipient thought it was fantastic so I guess that is what matters.

 So starting off with the card.....

Continuing with the cupcake box...

and here is the set together :)

I was thrilled with how they turned out and I for one am proud to share them.
