Stamping Bella Bundle Girl at the Pumpkin Patch

Hi Lovelies...

My card for this week's Bellarific Friday at Stamping Bella features the cute little Bundle Girl at the Pumpkin Patch.. carrying the most mahoosive pumpkin I have ever seen!

I coloured the image, then cut a mask of it to use before creating another mask in a wave shape - to use top and bottom so I could blend Distress Inks in between.  Does that sound Irish or does it make sense??  So it's a one layer card!  I then stamped the sentiment in a brown to match the image.

Card Info:
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E000/11 R01/20
Clothes and Hat - E13/15/19
Scarf - YG17 G46
Pumpkins - YR12/21/24/27
Shading W0/1/3
White Gel Pen

AND THEN.....  I decided that while I still had the masks - I could try a bit of splattering - maybe trying to give the impression of leaves falling??  Not sure I achieved that!  I splattered with a light brown and an orange watercolour paints - then some Kuretake Gansai Tambi Gold watercolour - which you can barely see on the photos, but shows up a lot on my trousers where I accidentally splattered!!!! I have a big cardboard box that I use to spray/splatter things inside... but STILL my trousers got it!

So there you go.... with or without splatter!

Hope you like my make today (whichever way!) ..  and that you'll pop over to the Stamping Bella Blog for more inspiration using gorgeous Bundle Girls.  There's also the Facebook Sistahood page where you can chat and share all things Bella related..  we love to see your creations!

Clearly Besotted Sweet Dreams

Hi Lovelies...

I've been happily colouring up this cutie from the new release at Clearly Besotted... the stamp set was ordered Wednesday night and was in my hand on Friday morning...  stamped and coloured that afternoon, and then popped on cards yesterday!

It's such a sweet set and I know I'll use it for many occasions..  and it was a joy to colour and fussy cut.

Card Info:
Image and Sentiment - Clearly Besotted Sweet Dreams
Die - MFT Jumbo Peekaboo Circle

Distress Inks - Spun Sugar and Kitsch Flamingo
Colouring - Copics

Unicorn - T0/1 RV52/63
Stars - RV52/63
White Gel Pen

Next I decided to change up the colour and shape of the base card.  I still used the scalloped circle frame - adding a curved border die.  I used blue Distress Inks to create the cloudy sky panel behind the circle - after seeing Michelle from The Card Grotto use similar colours.  I did a white splatter over the clouds for stars, then added some white gel pen larger dots for bigger stars!

I can't make up my mind which of the colours I prefer!

Card Info:
Image, Dies, Stencil and Unicorn Colouring as above
MFT Scalloped Stitched Border Die
Distress Inks - Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire
White Gel Pen

Hope you like my makes today as much as I enjoyed making them.

Hi There...

Today I'm sharing a card using a fabulously cute image from Polkadoodles - this is Honey Pie Dancing Queen.  She's a lovely little lady and I knew she needed pink... of course!

Hi There...

As we have the Set of Kitties as Stamp of the Month throughout August at Stamping Bella, the team are using 'any other animal stamp' for our Bellarific Friday make.

Mama Elephant Up With Love

Hi Lovelies...

Happy Sunday!

For my card today, I've used the Mama Elephant Up With Love stamp set which I adore, colouring and fussy cutting the images, then using a dry embossing tool to make them more rounded.

I then created a pink cloudy base, using Spun Sugar Distress Ink over a cloud stencil.  I left a clear space at the bottom of the panel to place the sentiment.  I matted and layered the panel onto pink cardstock.

I adhered the little teddy and bunny using 3D foam pads, using thinner ones for adhering the sentiment, which I'd heat embossed in gold.

Card Info:
Images - Mama Elephant Up With Love
Sentiment - Clearly Besotted Feeling Sentimental
MFT Cloud Stencil
MFT Stitched Rectangle Die
Colouring - Copics
Rabbit - T0/1/2/3 R01

Hi There...

It's Bellarific Friday again and as it's the second Friday of the month, we're highlighting some of the older stamp sets - I say 'older' quietly - as Edna would never forgive me for using that word in the same sentence as her name!!

I coloured and fussy cut Edna - then used a dry embossing tool to give her the rounded effect.  I then created a background using two strips of post it tape and blending ink between them.  Then I stamped it with this Twinkle Twinkle background stamp.  'Nuff said.... Edna has to have her sparkle!

Card Info:
Image and Sentiment - Stamping Bella Meet Edna
Background stamp - Taylored Expressions Twinkle Twinkle Stamp
Die - MFT Stitched Rectangles

Rachelle Anne Miller Garden Friends Scene Builder

Hi Lovelies...

It's nearly time for the August release at Rachelle Anne Miller Digital Stamps- so today I have a sneak peek of one of the new images - in face this is a collection of little characters and things from the garden.... it's called the Garden Friends Scene Builder Collection and will be available on Thursday, 12 August.

It was so easy to create a scene with these little cuties - as they're digi images, they can be moved around and placed just where you like.  I used PowerPoint to create mine, but Word is just as easy.

I decided to try a little no-line colouring - as the images come both in black line and faded line - perfect for this style.  I tried to give the characters some texture too - especially that little teddy, and the cute little hedgie!

Card Info:
Die - MFT Stitched Rectangle
Paper - MFT Graphics
Colouring - Copics
Teddy - E30/31/33/35/81/18
Rabbit - W0/1/2/3 E81
Hedgehog - N0/1/2/3 E42
Baskets E51/53
Yellows - Y17/15
Pinks - R81/83
Butterfly RV91/93
Ladybird R27/C9
Shading - B0000/000/01
Grass - Prismacolor Pencils 

I know I'll use these little guys over and over in different scenes..  they're such a fab way to make something really special.

Hope you like my make today - you can find more inspiration on the Rachelle Anne Miller Facebook Page - or check out the blog.
