Heffy Doodle Quack Me Up

Hi Peeps...

Well I've had a quiet day today - so I took the opportunity to pop into my craft room to do a bit of colouring!  This Heffy Doodle stamp set has been sitting waiting for a little while, so out it came!

I coloured and fussy cut the images - then diecut a circle and did a little Distress Oxide blending on that, to create a background for the images.  I stamped the sentiment also after I'd figured out the image placements.  I adhered the circle to the diecut rectangle panel, then that onto the card base.  I added the images with 3D foam pads to the card, then lastly, added some Crystal Glaze to the duck's beak and the puddle - and some glitter to the sun.

Card Info:
Image and Sentiment - Heffy Doodle Quack Me Up Clear Stamp Set
Dies - MFT Stitched Rectangles and MFT Pierced Circles
Distress Oxides - Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass
Colouring - Copics
Duck and Sun - Y13/15/18 YR04
Puddle - B01
Clouds - B000 BV31

I bought the stamp set from a wonderful little craft shop in Skipton owned by lovely Katy - the shop is called The Stamping Shed and is fabulous to visit if you ever get chance!

MFT It's Penguining to Look a Lot Like Christmas - Take 2

Hi Peeps...

Well these are my last Christmas makes for this year!  I've used the MFT It's Penguining to Look a Lot Like Christmas for my cards...  colouring and fussy cutting them.  Then I created a snow scene for the background - using an MFT Stitched Rectangle die.  I used Distress Inks to give the colour, then splattered with water and white paint.  I cut a little snow bank with an LFT Stitched Hillside Border, and added that for the penguin to stand on.

Lastly, I adhered the penguins with foam pads, giving them a tiny shadow with a Copic BV31 marker, then added a tiny sentiment from Clearly Besotted.

There's four penguins in the set - so I created four cards - the others are below.

Now, I just want to wish everyone that follows me a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  Thank you for taking the time to check out my makes..  it's always very much appreciated!

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
Stickles and Glitter

Hope you like my fun make today!

For my Bellarific Friday card this week, I've used the very glamorous Oddball Snow Queen ...  she's so cosy in that fabulously warm wrap!  I coloured and fussy cut her, then of course she had to have glitter - so I have given her a Distress Oxide blended background, stencilled with sparkly embossing paste through large snowflakes.  I adhered her to the background using 3D foam tape.

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
Chunky Glitter and Tiny Stars

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!

Happy Crafting...
