Eating All the Chocolate!

Hi Lovelies...

Yayyy... It's Bellarific Friday today and this time we're using images from the newest release at Stamping Bella - and what fabulous images we had to choose from!

I decided to go for one of the wonderful Oddballs..  this one has lots of chocolate to eat... a bit like me during lockdown!

I coloured her and fussy cut around the image, before adhering her to my background.  I stamped the sentiment that comes along with the stamp in the corner.

Bugs and Hugs.....

Hi Lovelies...

It's a Littles week for me - this time I've used the fabulous Stamping Bella Little Bits Critters.. there are seven little images in the stamp set, I chose to use these five.

I've had this die in my stash for a while too and I thought it was perfect for these little guys... but it was on a magnetic sheet without it's packaging, so it's anyone's guess who the maker is.  Now, I'm normally organised!

I did a lot of fussy cutting of the images, trying hard not to accidentally remove antennae! Then I used some Distress Ink to create the back panel of the shaker element.

Card Info:
Sentiment - done on PC
Paper - Sunny Studio Designs
Die - ?
Colouring - Copics
Y18/38 YR27 E57/29
R24/46/57 N5/7
BV01/04 RV52
Glitter and Sequins
Distress Ink Twisted Citron

These little critters are the perfect addition to any type of floral card - they create a fab little accent - or like me, you can create a whole card using them!

Hope you like my make today, thanks for visiting...

Little Bits Fairies


Hi Lovelies...

Today I'm using the fabulous Little Bits Fairy set from Stamping Bella for my card..  I just love these little girlie fairies!

I created the background by using some Distress Inks on a white card panel - after marking where the windows of the die would be when adhered.  I wanted pink behind the pink fairy, green behind the green, and lilac behind the lilac one.  Then I added some acetate behind the windows, and created a shaker card with my sequins.  

I fussy cut the fairies, and thought it would be fun to have them dancing and flying around the card.  Now the set has four fairies, and I do feel so bad for the one that didn't make it onto the front of the card - so much so, I coloured her and popped her inside!

Card Info:
Dies - Lawn Fawn Stitched Scallop Rectangles, MFT Stitched Rectangles
MFT Trio of Stitched Windows
Distress Inks Spun Sugar, Twisted Citron, Milled Lavender
Colouring - Copics
Hair - C5/7/9
Skin - E000/00/11
Fairy Dresses - V15/17, G12/14, RV52/63

Sunny is Stylish...

Hey Peeps...

I'm back today using the gorgeous Simply Stylish Uptown Girl from Stamping Bella... and I have to own up to a truth.  I did make a card for our Bellarific Friday last week, but the plan in my head didn't quite come to fruition on my card - even after a second attempt..  it was pretty poor and I was so disappointed!  Sooo... it hit the bin!  Does that sort of thing happen to you??

I decided today to colour up another Stamping Bella image  - this time using one of my favourite stamps (I do love these Uptown Girls) - this is Sunny is Stylish... and she certainly is!  I fussy cut her so that I could adhere her on foam pads to the background.

Card Info:
Die - Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders
Cardstock - Anna Marie Designs
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E00/11
Hair - E21/23/25

Glitter and Enamel Dots

Where's my Bucket and Spade??

Hi Lovelies..

There is a fabulous new release from All Dressed Up - and I got to use the gorgeous Bucket and Spade for my DT card.

I chose to use really bright summery colours as at the moment, it's dull, wettish, grey and chilly here in the UK - we need a bit of warm!

I fussy cut the image - then tried adding a few layers behind - and I was really happy how it turned out..

Card Info:
Word - MFT Little Letters Dies
Other dies - MFT Stitched Scalloped Square Frames, Stitched Rectangles

Happy Birthday to YOU!

Hi Lovely Bloggers...

Today my card is something so different for me - it took me out of my comfort zone!  OK it's pink.....  but there the similarity ends!  

I used the MFT Circle Celebrations background over a Distress Oxide blended panel - then heat embossed with gold embossing powder..  so difficult to photograph, but I tried my best.  Then I diecut the large word three times and adhered together, the top one in gold mirri card.  I heat embossed the little sentiment, and diecut a couple of hearts - adhering all to a strip of vellum.

Card Info:
MFT Circle Celebrations Background Stamp
Simon Says Stamp You Word Die
Simon Says Stamp Tiny Hearts Dies
MFT Sentiment
Distress Oxides Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry
Gold Mirri Card

Hope you like my make today!
