Rachelle Anne Miller Snail Friend

Hi All....

Today, I'm sharing my card using another of the fabulous September images from Rachelle Anne Miller Designs.  This is Snail Friend - and was so lovely to colour.  Digital images are good to use, as they can be resized to suit your card size - or even for tags too!

I coloured the image then did some matting and layering with matching papers, adding a couple of little diecut clouds.  I then created a sentiment using some tiny alphabet stamps.  

Card Info:
Sentiment - Hero Arts Tiny Alphabet
Dies - Tonic Studios Scalloped Square, Lawn Fawn Simple Puffy Cloud Frames
Colouring - Copics
Flower - Y15/17/38 YR24/27 E01
Snail - W0/1/3/4 R20
Stem YG05/17
Ladybird - R24/46 C7/9
Grass - Prismacolor Pencils
White Gel Pen

If you need any more information on how I created this card, just let me know and I'll do my best to help.

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
Stencil - MFT Tiny Clouds Border
Distress Inks - Spun Sugar and Kitsch Flamingo
Colouring - Copics
Moon - Y15/17/38/ YR24
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.

Another Bellarific Friday has come around - and this time we're highlighting the Stamp of the Month for September - which is the fabulous Bundle Girl on a Swing - you can get it with 50% discount throughout the month.

I coloured and fussy cut the image,  then created a cloudy background by stencilling a panel with Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry.  I used a fab die - Sky Bursters from Mama Elephant - to give me an oval aperture for the girl to swing through.  This die not only cuts the oval, but gives the sunburst cuts too.

Stencil - MFT Tiny Clouds
Distress Inks - Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry
