Stamping Bella Bundle Girl on a Plane

Hi Lovelies...

Time for another Bellarific Friday at Stamping Bella - and this time - as it's the last Friday of the month - we're using stamps from the new release.

I chose to use this gorgeous Bundle Girl on a Plane - she's sooooo cute!  I coloured and fussy cut her, then created a sky background by using some Cosmic Shimmer Mica Pixie Powders...  you sprinkle them on a gel press then spray with water, before pressing some watercolour paper onto the surface to pick up the paint.  I've got to tell you, my hands were totally blue by the time I'd finished - but I did enjoy playing!  

Card Info:
Dies - L'il Inkers Stitched Square, MFT Stitched Scalloped Circle Frame
Cosmic Shimmer Powder
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E04/11/000 R20
Hat - RV32/34
Scarf - RV91/93/95
Coat - V20/15
Paper Plane - BV31/20

Hope you like my Stamping Bella make today... and that you'll head on over to the Sistahood Facebook page and the Stamping Bella Blog for more inspiration.

Have a good weekend all...

MFT Odd Couple - Two More!

Hi Lovelies...

Today I'm popping by to share a couple of cards I made using this gorgeous little mouse from MFT that I've used recently, but then also using some of the blended/spalttered card that I created for my card that I posted at the weekend.  Well, waste not, want not as they say...!!

Card Info:

And here's the second... just using the blended panel in a different way.

It's always nice to be able to use something for more than one card... and as I'd coloured a few of these little mice, they were on hand to adhere with 3D foam pads...  and now I have a little stock of birthday cards!

Hope you like my makes today...

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.

Card Info:
Sentiment - MFT Itty Bitty Birthday
Distress Oxides Saltwater Taffy, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade
Gold and Deep Orange Watercolours
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E000/11 R01/20
Hair - E21/23/25
Dress - R02/05/08

Mirri Card

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!

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

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

Hi Lovelies...

I'm excited as it's time for a wonderful new release from Rachelle Anne Miller Digital Images.  This release is so beautiful - it's all to do with a Mother's love for her little one... so can be perfect for Mother's Day - or to welcome a new baby into the world.

MFT Grand Greenery

Hi Lovelies...

Well this is a card that none of us really like making - but unfortunately they are cards that are needed occasionally so here we go...

It's such a simple card to make...  firstly I used Distress Oxides blended together, then used a rectangle stitched die to create a small panel which I adhered to my card base.  Then I diecut a leaf branch, adhering that with tiny glue dots, before stamping my sentiment on black, embossing with white embossing powder.

Card Info:
Dies - MFT Grand Greenery, MFT Stitched Rectangles
Sentiment - Papertrey Ink Fillable Frames
Distress Oxides - Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Villainous Potion

I'm only popping in with this as I made it a few days back... I'm afraid we've both come down with the dreaded Norovirus earlier in the week which has left me absolutely tired out... something to do with being so dehydrated.  So I'm drinking plenty.... of water!

Back to normal service soon...

Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Borders

Hi Lovelies...

Today I'm sharing a card I made using the fabulous Birthday Borders stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh...  I needed a card for my brother, and I don't think he'd be keen on my cutey cards!

I stamped the image onto a kraft card diecut square panel, then heat embossed the black outline with clear gloss embossing powder.  I coloured the candles with my Prismacolor pencils.  After they were all coloured, I used some Nuvo Crystal Glaze to make the candles 3D - which I've tried to show on the photograph above, but found it really difficult to show how it looks in real life!  

Card Info:
Image - Pretty Pink Posh Birthday Borders
Sentiment - Pretty Pink Posh Everyday Greetings
Die - Lil' Inkers Stitched Square
Prismacolor Pencils
Nuvo Crystal Glaze

Hope you like my card today - it's an easy one to make and I know I'll make a few!
