Stamping Bella Flamingodeer

Hi There...

Well it's time for another Bellarific Friday and as it's the last one of the month, we're using images from the latest release.  I chose to use this fabulous Flamingodeer...  to colour in pink of course!

I coloured the image and then fussy cut it - yes, even fussy cutting those skinny legs - eeek!  Then I created a Distress Oxide Blended background using Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick, sprinkled with gold watercolour paint.

I stamped the sentiment which is from another set on the white base.

Card Info:
Die - MFT Stitched Rectangles
Distress Oxides - Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick
Colouring - Copics
Gold Watercolour Paint

Hope you like my make today as much as I enjoyed making it.... of course, it's PINK so you might know I would!

Hi There...

I've been playing over the weekend with this gorgeous word die from The Stamp Market that I bought from The Stamping Shed in Skipton recently...  it's such a fine die - I did the letters in gold mirri and the backing in pink to match the card base.

Then I used Distress Oxides rainbow colours on a white piece of card - I love creating rainbows!  I die cut the panel using the Hero Arts Fancy Flower Garden Die adhering the diecut to the card base.

Distress Oxides Used
Spun Sugar
Picked Raspberry
Carved Pumpkin
Squeezed Lemonade
Cracked Pistachio
Mermaid Lagoon
Dusty Concord

Today I'm sharing a card I made with the fabulous new Nativity Silhouette from MFT - it dropped through my letter box on Friday and I made a card straight away!

I diecut the set in black - then created a Distress Oxide blended panel.  I then splattered the panel with white to create the starry background, die-cutting the star from the set in white and adding that together with the other parts of the set.

I used a older sentiment from Paper Smooches - heat embossing it in white - and it was done - hope you like!

Stamping Bella Brett and Brenda Get Married

Hey Peeps...

Today I'm sharing a special card I made for my youngest daughter for her wedding day...  lots of love went into the card and I know she appreciated it.

I used an older Stamping Bella stamp - this one is called Brett and Brenda Get Married... and I had to alter the groom slightly, as her now husband has a man bun!!  It was easy to add with a Copic fine liner pen.  But otherwise, I personalised it with their hair colours and his suit etc.  I've attached a little photo below of the couple on their big day!

I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the image, then created a background using a stencil and some glimmer paste - sprinkling with glitter while the paste was still wet.  I then used a Congratulations word die, to cut three of the word - adhering them together to create depth.

I finished the card by adding it to a larger panel of pink - as this was one of the 'wedding colours'.

Card Info:
Dies - Congratulations - (no make on it!) MFT Stitched Rectangles
Stencil - Small Stars - Rainbow Designs
Colouring - Copics

I hope you like my card as much as I enjoyed making it..
