Hi Peeps...

Well I've been a little quiet card-wise this week... no reason really, just other stuff going on.  I'm also fighting the 'photography' of my makes... I spend lots of time trying to get 'just the right' photograph, with little success.  One day... 

Anyways - my card today for Stamping Bella is using another one of the fabulous Dandy Lions.... this is Rainbow Dandy - isn't he so cute holding his rainbow up high???


Card Info:
Dies - MFT Stitched Rectangles, Waffle Flower A2 Lacy Layers
Colouring - Copics
Lion - E30/31/33/29 R20
Mane - done with Prismacolor Pencils
Cloud - C0/1 B60
Rainbow - Prismacolor Pencils
Grounding - W0/1/3/5
Shading - B0000/000/41

I added some glitter and some sequins to give his mane and the cloud some sparkle - well, you gotta have sparkle.... right??

Hope you like my make today and that you'll pop over to the Stamping Bella Blog for more inspiration, and also to the Facebook Sistahood Page to share and chat all things Bella related.

Stamping Bella Tiny Townies Garden Girls Lily of the Valley


Hi Lovelies...

Well, another week's gone by, so it's Bellarific Friday time at Stamping Bella...  I really can't believe how fast the weeks go!

I've used one of the Tiny Townies Garden Girls for my card today... the Lily of the Valley is flowering well in my garden, so I chose to use this particularly girl - and to do a bit of no-line colouring.  I then fussy cut her and laid her to one side while I made the card.

I created the background with a stripey stencil and some Distress Ink blending...  then cut the oval from it.  I'd already smooshed some card using the same Distress Ink.. so added some acetate to the oval window, creating a shaker aperture.  I then added the flower girl and a sentiment - and it was done.



Card Info:
Dies - MFT Stitched Rectangle, Lil' Inkers Stitched Square
Stencil - Pretty Pink Posh Wide Stripes
Distress Ink - Shaded Lilac
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E000/04 R20
Hair - E21/23/25
Dress and Flowers - BV31/00/0000 V20/22 G82/43
Sequins

Hope you like my shaker make today.. don't forget to pop over to the Stamping Bella Blog for more inspiration from the Babes!

Pretty Pink Posh Spring Wreath


Hi Lovelies...

Today my card is a just for fun one....  I've used this fabulous Spring Wreath stamp from Pretty Pink Posh... but this time stamped it with Desert Sand Memento Ink - so it gives a no-line colouring effect.

I finished off with a little sentiment in the centre, embossed in gold, then added the panel to some pink cardstock using 3D foam.


Card Info:
Stamp - Pretty Pink Posh Spring Wreath
Sentiment - Papertrey Ink Fillable Frames
Colouring - Copics
Die - Lil' Inkers Stitched Square

This has to be one of my favourite cards that I've made... so simple but so effective.  Hope you like it too.

All Dressed Up Best Frocks


Hi Again...

I'm back again - this time to share my card using one of the fabulous Best Frocks girls from the April release at All Dressed Up Digital Stamps.  There's three lovely girls in the set - but I chose to only use one.

I coloured up the image using my Copics - in a colour which is unusual for me - but I'd decided to use the new Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide (along with a couple of others) for the blending, so I wanted a match.  I splattered the blending with gold and deep orange watercolour paints... and added a tiny strip of gold mirri card.  Lastly I added a small sentiment - again layered with some mirri card.

Sentiment - MFT Itty Bitty Birthday
Distress Oxides Saltwater Taffy, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl Stars and Cloud Backdrop


Hi Lovelies...

Time for a Bellarific Friday make... this time we're highlighting the fabulous backdrops available...  I've used the Bundle Girl Stars and Clouds for my card today....  fussy cutting the stars and clouds to use on my blended background.

For the blended panel, I used Distress Oxides, then splattered with white and gold.  I used 3D pads to attach the stars and the bundle girl sitting on her cloud, dreaming!


Card Info:
Distress Oxides - Tumbled Glass, Prize Ribbon, Chipped Sapphire

Colouring - Copics
Clouds - BV0000/00 B0000

I'm really sorry that my photography skills are not doing this card justice...  you'll just have to take it from me that colours are not as washed out as they appear here... the sun was shining very brightly when I was taking the photos... and I'm never going to complain about the sun - I just have to put up with not-so-good photos!

MFT Odd Couple


Hi Lovelies...

I've been playing!!  I'm feeling a lot better than I did last week after that awful tummy bug... so I've been playing with this little mouse - isn't he cute???  

I coloured and fussy cut the image (yes even those balloon strings!) - then created a background using some kraft card with a white card panel... self explanatory when you look at it.  I adhered the mouse with 3D foam pads onto a diecut circle, so that his balloons were sure to be 'over the edge'.


Card Info:
Image - MFT Odd Couple Stamp Set
Sentiment - MFT Itty Bitty Love
Colouring  - Copics
Mouse - T1/3/5/7 R81
Balloons - R24/27/46 E57
White Gel Pen
Nuvo Crystal Glaze

I thought I'd add another quick photo so that you can see the effect the Crystal Glaze gives to the balloons..
