Inspirational card by Julieanne (Jules)

Good morning crafters

Well it's finally my turn to do an inspirational post for you as I missed out last month due to there not being a 29th of the month. LOL LOL

I had a card already done last month which I was going to use this month but have put it aside possibly for next month or May (as I'll be on holidays) due to Donna releasing some beautiful new papers and thought I'd make a card using one of those sets.


Don't forget to pop on back in a couple of days for the next inspirational post by another one of the amazing Design Team.

Remember you can get the above paper pack and many more at

Happy crafting

Inspirational Post by Kym - March 2014

Hello it is Kym here and today it is my turn to show you an inspirational project for the Bearly Mine Inspiration and Challenge Blog.
I decided to show you all an Easter card.  Some people send Easter cards, some don't.  
For my card I have used four different sets from Bearly Mine Designs which are Just PlaidsSimply DotsSpring Surprise and Mini Dots.

In the Spring Surprise Set you get lots of yummy backing papers but you get some scenes and this is what I have used as the back-drop to my image.  My image is from Sweet Pea Stamps and is by Ching-Chou Kuik and is called "Tender Cuddle".  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Peacock Feathers distress ink.

I have used Bearly Mine Mini Dots light blue paper and punched out flowers.  To add a different dimension/contrast to the second layer of the flower I have laid over the turquoise washi tape I used on the card to a piece of light blue Mini Dots backing paper and then punched out the flower shapes.  

I have finished the card off with a sentiment off the computer, pearl dots in the centres of all the flowers and some die-cut leaves I was given by a friend which I have coloured with Tim Holtz's Peacock Feathers distress ink and my Inkylicious brush.

I hope you have enjoyed my little inspirational post.
Keep popping back to see more inspiration from the Bearlymine Girls

Sneak Peek and a little Inspiration

Good Morning, I'm here showing you a couple cards I made for some inspiration using some of my Digi sets, only this time I'm giving you a couple sneak peeks for a new Digi set coming out at the end of March....this one focuses on Mixed Media, so for those of you that would like to do some mixed media but don't have the supplies to do so, here is a collection of papers all ready done for you, showing some texture, some distressed stamps, and yes even some flowers.

Both cards show one of the new papers in the set, and I've used a couple of Sherri Baldy's bestie stamps colored with copics in similar colors to the papers....they complement each other so well. The flowers on my second card were made by me using scrapbooking flowers from I Am Roses, some yellow stamens and a bit of coloring from reinkers on them.

I hope these new papers are just the thing you're looking for. I know I really enjoyed using them as much as I enjoyed creating them.

Don't forget to stop by every couple of days for more inspiration here on the blog and also don't forget to enter our monthly challenge. ONE FOR THE GIRLS

Inspirational Post By Simona

Hello everyone from Simona

Here I am with my 2nd Inspirational post for Bearly-Mine Designs.
 The papers used for my project are from the Love Dreams and 

My dad celebrated his birthday recently and every year I would 
bake him a cake for his birthday. But this year he didn't want me 
to make him one because he is diabetic and he had to cut out
on sweets and cakes. So this was my birthday gift for 
my dad this year....and he loved it... :).

The cake and the shirt are made from SVG Cuts files


Here are the Bearly-Mine Papers i used:
