Sparkle Wherever You Go!

Hi Lovelies...

I had a lovely fun time yesterday colouring this little unicorn munching on birthday cake... and here's the result...

The digital images of the cake and unicorn are from a set called Unicorn Birthday by Isabel Cristina Stamps - available from Etsy here.   I was inspired to use this set by lovely Tina from My Piece of Paper - who had merged these images on this stunning card.  I contacted her to make sure she didn't mind me merging similarly - and she was good enough to talk me through the layering process!  She also has a tutorial on her blog if you'd like to see how it's done. The crafting world is pretty wonderful when it comes to helping one another and sharing knowledge, isn't it??

Paper - Sunny Studio Designs Polka Dot Parade
Colouring - Copics
Unicorn and Cake - T0/1/2/3 Hooves C5/7

Harry The Stuffie Gets Happy Mail


Hi Peeps..

I'm back today with my make for this week's Bellarific Friday at Stamping Bella..  and I'm using one of the older images for this make - meet Harry The Stuffie - with his Happy Mail!  I do love colouring the Stuffies with curly fur - using lots of dots.. as I like the effect.  I then fussy cut him before adhering him with a foam pad to the card.  

I think this image is perfect for around Valentine's day (which, yes, is coming up soon!)  I used the Stamping Bella Mwah word die and die cut it three times to stick together before adhering to the card so the word has depth.

Card Info:
Paper - Sunny Studio
Colouring - Copics
Bear - E41/42/43/44/47/79
Envelope - T0/1
Reds - R27/46

Hope you like my make today.. don't forget to pop over to the Stamping Bella Blog for more inspiration.... and also we'd love to see you share your fab Stamping Bella creations on our Stamping Bella Sistahood Facebook Page.

Yellow???? Yikes... Yes, it's me!


Hi Lovelies...

It IS me.... using one of the colours that as you know, I generally avoid... but I decided this fabulous bloom needed a sunshine colour - so I picked out my yellow zig markers, and this is the result!

It's been pouring with rain here all day today, so this colouring really brightened my mood...  and I decided to use gold mirri card as a mat for the 'beautiful' word and also for the whole card.  It's difficult to photograph, but I think you can just spot that it IS actually gold!

Card Info:
Stamp - MFT Beautiful Bloom
Die - MFT Beautiful Word Die
(both available in the UK from Dies to Die For)
Other sentiment done on PC
Colouring - Zig Clean Colour Markers

My design was inspired by a card I spotted on The Unpampered Stamper's blog (thanks!)..  which had stamped images of this bloom over the edge of the card..  I liked the effect so decided to give it a try.  

Hope you like my make today - it's an effective card, but doesn't take a lot of colouring... I only used two colours then used a water brush to blend.  With water colours - I always feel that the blending shouldn't be absolutely perfect - well that's my excuse!

Twinkle Toes


Hi Lovelies...

Happy New Year!  Hope 2019 brings you and yours everything you wish for!

I'm back today with an Inspiration DT card for All Dressed Up - my first for Wendy since before I was in hospital...  and I SO loved getting back in the swing!  This card is for our new challenge - the theme is


And seeing I've used a lot of pink lately - I decided to go with my next favourite colour this time - purple/violets.

Card Info:
Sentiment - The Greeting Farm Little Fairies
Die - MFT Stitched Rectangle
Paper - Anna Marie Designs
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E000/00/11/04 R20
Hair - E41/42/43/44
Purples - V01/12/15/17

I fussy cut a second skirt and set of wings so that I could adhere them with a foam pad - it gives lots of depth to the image - but is difficult to photograph...  hope you can see what I did.

We're having a quiet celebration of the New Year today - my lovely man set rockets and fireworks off at midnight last night to see out the old year - so we're a bit on the tired side today (nothing to do with the brandy we got through!)
