Miss Anya Darlin

Hi Lovelies

I've been playing with the fabulous Miss Anya Darlin stamps from The Greeting Farm - and here's the result using one of the gorgeous girls!

Lolly and Her Brolly


Hi Lovelies...

Whooaaa - Friday has come round again in double quick time - and you know what that means...  it's Bellarific Friday... yayyy!

This time we had a colour inspiration photo to follow....

Image may contain: sky, mountain, nature and outdoor

I decided to use Lolly and Her Brolly for my card - she seemed a perfect match for the colours.  I created a Distress Oxide blended rectangle first by using masking paper with the rectangle diecut from the centre.

Then I coloured Lolly and fussy cut her, before adhering her to the card.  The sentiment was stamped with Versafine - then a few gems added the finishing touch.

The image on my first card is 'Curvy Girl Loves Tea' - and I decided to do a background using the Bokeh technique through a stencil with lots of circles.  As I'd chosen green for her dress, I used lots of green in the Bokeh - and I was happy with how it turned out.

Now for my second card I used the gorgeous Teeny Tiny Townies Love image - I decided to create a little scene with the clouds behind - then gave them dresses in pastel shades, before colouring the word LOVE in red.  I also created grass with my Copics.

If Friends Were Flowers...


Hi Lovelies...

Amidst all the excitement of the Sneak Peeks, we also have our Bellarific Friday today... and this time we're highlighting images from the Teeny Tiny Townie range - as our Stamp of the Month was Call Me Teeny Tiny Townie - don't forget you can purchase that image for 25% discount right through January!

Now I chose to use Teeny Tiny Townie with a Bouquet - as this is one of my favourites - that mahoosive bouquet is going to topple her over if she's not careful!

After colouring - I fussy cut the image so that I could adhere her with foam pads giving the card a 3D effect.  Then I diecut and used some small hearts to add more interest.

Die - Lil' Inkers Stitched Square

Colouring - Copics

Last two Christmas makes.... a bit late!

Hi Peeps..

Sorry I've been missing for a while - I've had the nasty virus that's been doing the rounds, so my blog came to a standstill just before Christmas!

So I'm very quickly adding a couple of cards that didn't quite make it to the blog - but didn't want to be ignored either, so here they are!

The first one is a really simple shaker card - using the Pretty Pink Posh Joy Diecut Circle..  I used it with kraft card and filled with lots of sequins to give the required 'shake'!

And for the second, I used this 'Cute Santa and Reindeer' from the Digital Stamp Boutique - I know they're no longer trading, but I still love to use their images and sentiments!

Hope you like my last Christmas makes...
