Hi Lovelies...

It's my turn today to highlight one of Wendy's fabulous new images this month at All Dressed Up...  this is called 'Magical Unicorn'..  for obvious reasons!

Hope you like what I did... and that you'll pop over to the All Dressed Up Facebook page to see what my lovelies teamies came up with highlighting the other wonderful new images for August...

I tried to do a bit of an ombre effect on the word die cut - using the colours from  her clothes.
I love these Stamping Bella Word Dies  - they are fabulous as they come in three different sizes in each pack (see the pic)..  so you can choose whichever is perfect for your project.

You can pop over to the Stamping Bella blog today to see more fabulous Tiny Townie inspiration..  and then why don't you visit the Stamping Bella Sistahood Facebook Page, to share your makes or join in the current challenge - we love to see how you use Stamping Bella stamps!

The Greeting Farm Fairy Freebie!

Hi Lovelies...

Today I'm sharing a gorgeous fairy image that was free in the newsletter to celebrate The Greeting Farm's 10th birthday recently...  I'm not sure of her name - so I'm calling her Fairy Freebie! 

Of course, being a fairy of some repute, she demanded PINK and lots of it!  So I gave her a pink hair-do and lots of sparkle/glitter - and she seems happy, don't you think?

Card Info:

Hope you like my fairy make today... I love creating with The Greeting Farm images - they are so crisp and clear to colour - and I love their size too.

Hope you've had a good weekend...

Blanche the Butterfly

Hi Peeps...

I'm back with another Bellarific Friday make for Stamping Bella..  and today we're using 'Vintage' - that is, any image other than from the newest release.

I chose to use one of the gorgeous Tiny Tiny Butterfly Girls... this is Blanche.... isn't she gorgeous??  I also went with a shaker make, but using the DP behind the shaker element - just with the frame, which I always think is effective.

Bonnie Loves Bows...

Hi Peeps...

It's Bellarific Friday time and today the Sistahs were asked to create using this month's Stamp of the Month...  this is Tiny Townie Bonnie Loves Bows.... isn't she gorgeous??  She has a matching cut-it-out die too if you prefer both, and you can get her and the die this month for 25% less than the usual price!!  Bargain!

I coloured her up before cutting her out...  and decided to use kraft card for a CAS background.  I used the sentiment that comes with the image and finished with a few sequins and a small flag.  Then I added lots of glitter to her petticoat before adhering her to the card.

Card Info:
Image and Sentiment - Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Bonnie Loves Bows, Die - Lil'Inkers Stitched Rectangle, Colouring - Copics - Skin E000/00/11/04 R20, Hair - C5/7/9, Dress - RV52/63/55, Tights - RV66, Reds - R24/27/46 E57, Sequins

Hi Peeps...

We're into a wonderful new month and as it's the 1st, it's time for All Dressed Up's new challenge.  This time the theme is...


Not so difficult huh???

Out came my pinks (of course), and I used Top Knot for my card - she's so lovely to colour. 

Card Info:
