Rachelle Anne Miller Nativity Scene Creator


My card today features a fabulous digital image set from Rachelle Anne Miller - it's the Nativity Scene Creator and there's so many characters and images in this set to use any way you like.  I chose to use the classic Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus, together with the three wise men plus one tiny sheep!

Sunny Studio Designs Scenic Route

Hi Lovelies...

I'm sharing a 'just for fun' card today... using a variety of images from different stamp companies... joining them together to create a little scene!

Firstly I used the fabulous Scenic Route from Sunny Studios - this is the little row of houses and trees.  I stamped and coloured them, then masked the image so I could do some Distress Oxide blending in the background.  I allowed the sky to dry before splattering both the sky and the houses with white paint to create the falling snow.

I stamped a little girl from the Birdie Brown Happy Santa set - (I bought this years ago as a digital set but know it's been available from MFT as a clear set called Jingle All The Way since) -  then I fussy cut her and adhered with a foam pad.  Lastly, I used an old Paula Pascual stamp set for the sentiment - this set comes in handy so many times - I've had it for years and years and still find it has 'the perfect' sentiment that I need!

Card Info:
Sunny Studios Scenic Route Stamp Set
Birdie Brown Happy Santa Digital Set
Paula Pascual Sentiment
Die - MFT Stitched Rectangles
Colouring - Copics
Distress Oxides Tumbled Glass, Prize Ribbon, Chipped Sapphire

Hope you like my fun make today!

Stamping Bella Teeny Tiny Townie with a Gift

Me again Peeps!

It's the last day of the Sneaky Peeks at Stamping Bella - tomorrow it's New Release day! Today my card features the gorgeous Teeny Tiny Townie With a Gift.  Now this card was sooooo difficult to photograph properly - so you'll have to go easy on me!

I coloured and fussy cut the image - then tried to do one of the shaker bag backgrounds.. hiding the edges with a frame.  As you can see, the bag took a lot of tiny stars and chunky glitter - I've photographed it flat to try to show the filling as well as I could.  When the card is upright, the shaker bits fall down and are just behind the girlie.  I can only add that it looks a lot better in real life than it does in my photographs!

Card Info:
(available 18th November)
Die - MFT Stitched Scalloped Rectangles
Colouring - Copics
Hair - C5/7
Skin - E000/11
Dress - BG32/24/45
Pinks - RV52/63/55/17
Leaves - G12

So that's my last Sneaky Peek for this fabulous release - there are some truly wonderful images and I know you'll be spoiled for choice!

Stamping Bella Penguideer

Hey Peeps...

It's Bellarific Friday time again - I've used one of the fabulous older images (unfortunately no longer available) for my card.. this is the fabulous Penguideer!

I coloured and fussy cut the image, then created a background by using Distress Oxides blended together, then stencilling the snow with embossing paste on top.  I also sprinkled a tiny bit of glitter onto the paste while it was still wet.  I then die cut a couple of little snow banks for the Penguin to stand on, and it was done.  

I created the words by using a sentiment from another stamp set... this time it was from The Penguin and The Marshmallow - I stamped it then cut it into the three separate words, adhering them onto the panel.

Poppy Stamps Breezy Wreath

Hi Lovelies...

Today my card is a 'just for fun' one - I always love working with kraft card - and so decided to match it with some red for Christmas.

The wreath die is from Poppy Stamps - I decided to cut two from different green cardstocks and layer them - adding some tiny red dots for the berries.  I popped the wreath onto a scalloped square die - then matted and layered then with red.  I die cut the word three times, which I adhered together to give depth... topping the word with rose gold glitter card.

Card Info:
Poppy Stamps Breezy Wreath, 
Clearly Besotted Merry Christmas
Stitched Scalloped Square 

There's no colouring on this card (another thing I love every now and again), just cutting and sticking.  I really love how it turned out!
