Bundle Girl on a Swing

Hi again...

Yay... it's Bellarific Friday again - and this time I got to play with this gorgeous little Bundle Girl on a Swing...  she's so adorable!

After colouring, I chose to crop the image slightly by using a diecut coloured frame over some patterned paper.  I also changed the shape of the sentiment that comes with her too - I just cut each line of the words to separate, so that I could stack then on top of each other in my stamp positioner.  Hey Presto - they fit where I needed them!

Card Info:
Dies - MFT Stitched Rectangles, MFT Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Frame
Paper - MFT Fun in the Sun Paper Pad
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E000/01 R20
Hat and Boots - BG10/32/45/49
Coat - YR61/65/27

Hope you like my card today as much as I loved making it.  Hope also that you'll pop over to the Stamping Bella Blog to see what the other lovely ladies of the DT have come up with to inspire.

Happy Crafting...

Up with Love

Hi Lovelies...

A bit of a minimalistic card from me today...  I love this new stamp set from Mama Elephant - and knew it needed very little in the way of other decorations...  so here it is.

I coloured and fussy cut the image - then created a panel by using post-it tape from one side to the other... stencilling clouds above.  I adhered the gorgeous little bunny on one side, then stamped a sentiment from the set.  I did think that was a little TOO minimalistic - so added a couple of hearts.

Card Info:
Stamp and Sentiment - Mama Elephant Up With Love
Colouring - Copics
Bunny - T0/1 R20 C0/1 R81
Balloon - R81/83
Die - Creative Cuts Confetti
Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink
MFT Clouds Stencil

Hope you like my quick and easy make today...

Rachelle Anne Miller Ballerina

Hi Lovelies...

I've been playing with my stash of lovely Rachelle Anne Miller digital images - and this little girlie was just desperate to be coloured so she could get on with her dancing!

As she has lots of birds, butterflies, and flowers surrounding her, I didn't do any fussy cutting, but tried a different shading technique using Prismacolor Pencils... after being inspired by a lovely blogger friend of mine.  When I first started using these pencils (about 10 years ago now!), I did similar shading - but I'd forgotten, so was happy to dig out my pencils again - and I'm pleased with how it turned out.

Card Info:
Dies - MFT Pierced Circle Stax, MFT Single Stitched Line Frame
Colouring - Copics
Hair - E11/13/15
Skin - E000/01/11 R20
Dress - V01/04/06/12/15
Prismacolor Pencils
White Gel Pen

I decided to go for a circular card this time to make a change.  

Hope you like my make today...

Oddball Giraffe

Hi There...

As always, I coloured and fussy cut the image - then created the background by using a scrap of dotty paper from my stash, and die-cut some borders and stars from white card that I'd coloured to match the card.

Card Info:
Dies - MFT Stitched Rectangle, Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders, 
Mama Elephant Confetti Stars
Colouring - Copics

Balloon Girl

Hey Lovely Bloggers...

For my card today, I played with this fabulous little image from Rachelle Anne Miller - she's soooo darn cute and I knew as soon as I spotted her, she had to be in my basket, coloured and on a card as quick as I could!  Mine is a digital image from her website - though there are stamps also available through MFT.

I coloured and fussy cut her - then I created a little panel of hearts by firstly blending Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick distress inks, then using a Honey Bee Whimsical Hearts Stencil with a Picked Raspberry.   I matted and layered the panel creating the card - then adhered the image off to one side.  I chose to use a tiny  sentiment which I gold embossed.

Card Info:
Sentiment - Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words
Stencil - Honey Bee Whimsical Hearts
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E000/01/11 R20
Clothes and Balloon - RV55/17/63/52
Toy - T0/1/3

Hope you like my make today as much as I loved making it.
