Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Besties


Hey Peeps...

It's Bellarific Friday - and we're using stamps from January's Stamp of the Month range - which this time are the Curvy Girls.  The Curvy Girl Besties has to be one of my favourite images of all - I've used it already a few times and enjoyed using it again today!

I coloured and fussy cut the image... then used a cover plate die to create the background.  I stamped the sentiment and cut the small panel for it to also be adhered to the panel.


Card Info:
Die - Sunny Studio Frilly Frames Stripes
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E0000/000 R01/20
Hair - E21/23/25 and E40/41/43
Dresses, Shoes and Flowers - R24/27/46 and BV20/22/25
Leaves - YG05/17

Hope you like my card today as much as I enjoyed making it... and that you'll pop over to the Stamping Bella Blog for more inspiration from the lovely Babes.  There's also the Sistahood Facebook page to share and enjoy all things Bella related.

Have a fab weekend..

Heffy Doodle Quack Me Up


Hi Peeps...

Well I've had a quiet day today - so I took the opportunity to pop into my craft room to do a bit of colouring!  This Heffy Doodle stamp set has been sitting waiting for a little while, so out it came!

I coloured and fussy cut the images - then diecut a circle and did a little Distress Oxide blending on that, to create a background for the images.  I stamped the sentiment also after I'd figured out the image placements.  I adhered the circle to the diecut rectangle panel, then that onto the card base.  I added the images with 3D foam pads to the card, then lastly, added some Crystal Glaze to the duck's beak and the puddle - and some glitter to the sun.


Card Info:
Image and Sentiment - Heffy Doodle Quack Me Up Clear Stamp Set
Dies - MFT Stitched Rectangles and MFT Pierced Circles
Distress Oxides - Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass
Colouring - Copics
Duck and Sun - Y13/15/18 YR04
Puddle - B01
Clouds - B000 BV31

I bought the stamp set from a wonderful little craft shop in Skipton owned by lovely Katy - the shop is called The Stamping Shed and is fabulous to visit if you ever get chance!

MFT It's Penguining to Look a Lot Like Christmas - Take 2


Hi Peeps...

Well these are my last Christmas makes for this year!  I've used the MFT It's Penguining to Look a Lot Like Christmas for my cards...  colouring and fussy cutting them.  Then I created a snow scene for the background - using an MFT Stitched Rectangle die.  I used Distress Inks to give the colour, then splattered with water and white paint.  I cut a little snow bank with an LFT Stitched Hillside Border, and added that for the penguin to stand on.

Lastly, I adhered the penguins with foam pads, giving them a tiny shadow with a Copic BV31 marker, then added a tiny sentiment from Clearly Besotted.

There's four penguins in the set - so I created four cards - the others are below.




Now, I just want to wish everyone that follows me a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  Thank you for taking the time to check out my makes..  it's always very much appreciated!
