A Giant Snowflake.... and a simple card!


Hi Peeps

A very simple one from me today using an older Hero Arts large Snowflake stamp that has been in my stash for some time.  I have used it before, but some years back!  

I simply stamped the snowflake onto white cardstock with Versamark Ink then sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat embossed.  After doing that, I used some Distress Oxides in Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry to blend the full panel.  I then polished any colour off the snowflake to show the white below.  

I splattered some white Distress Ink Paint too... before finishing with a sentiment and some crystal gems...  and it was done!

I'm happy with how it turned out!

Natalie and the Nutcracker


Hi Peeps...

It's time for another Bellarific Friday - we're using some of the wonderful stamps that are available that aren't from the current release.  One of my favourites from last year was this gorgeous Natalie and The Nutcracker (minus the Nutcracker in this case)..  I just LOVE her fabulous skirt!

Of course, she deserved glitter - so that's what I gave her... lots!  I love the sentiment too..  makes sense to me.

Card Info:
Glitter Card
Dies - MFT Stitched Scalloped Basic Edges, Tiny Stars
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E0000/000/00/11 R20
Hair - E21/25/27
Dress and Shoes - V0000/000/01/04

I fussy cut Natalie before using a large embossing tool on the reverse... which gives the skirt some oooomph!  (know what I mean?)

Hope you like my make today.  Don't forget to pop over to the Stamping Bella Blog to see what the other lovely Babes have come up with to inspire - and also to the Sistahood Facebook page to share all things Bella related.

Big hugs - have a fab weekend...

Sending Snuggly Hugs


Hi there...

I'm back with another little snowman from the Sunny Studio Feeling Frosty stamp set.  I created a Distress Ink Blended background by masking a circle and blending through.  I then added a couple of small snowy hillsides, with a couple of little trees too... before splattering with white Distress Paint to create the snow.

I hadn't originally planned to put the frame around the background - but when I tried it, I was happier with the way it looked - so went with it.

Card Info:
Image and Sentiment - Sunny Studio Stamps Feeling Frosty
Dies - Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders, MFT Stitched Scalloped Circle Frame
Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass, Blueprint Sketch, Chipped Sapphire
Colouring - Copics
Snowman BV31
Hat - RV55/17 BG45/49
Buttons T7/9

Hope you like my make today.  I'm certainly getting into the swing of my Christmas cards - who knows? this year I may not end up having to run out and buy more!

Big hugs

Leo the Balancing Stuffie


Hi Lovelies...

I made a fancy fold card - so thought you may want to see the top view to see how the folds work.  Not sure what this fold is called - but I'd got it in my head to do, and did a test fold on paper to start with to get the measurements I needed.
