Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Fashionista

Hi Lovelies...

We're at the last day of the week again - and of course, that makes it Bellarific Friday!  This week, as it's the last Friday of the month, we're using images from the newest release...  so I chose to use this gorgeous Uptown Girl Fashionista - isn't her coat just sooooo lovely???  I want one!

I coloured and fussy cut her - then created a background stencilling a circle with Distress Oxides.  While the stencil was still in place, I splattered gold watercolour paint... now I've taken a couple of photos from different angles so you can see the gold..  not easy to photograph!  I stamped the sentiment over the circle, then adhered the gorgeous girl, and it was nearly done.  Just a little matting and layering, then a few golden gems and it was finished.

Card Info:
Stencil - Taylored Expressions Circle
Die - MFT Stitched Rectangles
Distress Oxides - Saltwater Taffy and Dried Marigold
Colouring - Copics
Skin - E000/00/11
Hair and Boots - E13/15/18/09
Coat - YR61/65/09/18
Bag - E50/51/53/15
Glasses - YR61/65 T4/5/7
Gold Watercolour Paint

I've got to admit, that if I had favourite images - she would be one of them!  I just love how she's striding out, swinging her coat and looking FAB-U-LOUS DAH-LING!

Happy Crafting Everyone...

Pink Petticoat New Home

Hi Lovelies...

I've gone back in time a little bit with my card today - it's very similar to one I made some years back now... but I needed a New Home card - so out this little stamp from Pink Petticoat came.  It came with a set of freebies on a magazine in about 2014... but still gets use now! I loved Pink Petticoat images when they existed, and have lots of their digis in my stash on the computer!

I stamped and coloured the image, shading around with blue then dotting with white gel pen.  I diecut that with a circular fancy die - then cut a fishtail flag from patterned paper for the image to sit on with 3D foam pads to adhere.

Card Info:
Image - Pink Petticoat (no longer available)
Sentiment - done on PC
Dies - MFT Stitched Fishtail Flag, Circle
Stampin Up Punch for sentiment
Colouring - Copics
Cottage - E40/41/43
Roof - R81/83/85
Hearts and Chimney Smoke - C1
Worm - W3
Windows Y21
Sky - B0000/000/01
Grass done with Primsmacolor Pencils

This stamp came with a set of freebies on a magazine in about 2014... but still gets use now! I loved Pink Petticoat images when they existed, and have lots of their lovely digital images in my stash on the computer!

The recipients loved that I'd made them a card for their new home... and I'm always happy to make someone smile...

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl Beekeeper

Hi Again Lovelies...

It's Bellarific Friday time - and this time we're highlighting images that aren't from the current new release.  This little girlie has been jumping up and down on my desk shouting 'me... me!' so it was time to ink her up and get colouring!

I used Distress Oxides to blend the background, then splattered with gold watercolour paint - which is beautiful in real life, but impossible to photograph -  you'll just have to take my word for it!  Then I used my MFT Chicken Wire cover plate die on gold mirri card, cut down, for the honeycomb which was adhered to the background.

I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the images, then used 3D foam pads to adhere.  Lastly, I stamped the little sentiment in the corner, and it was done!

Card Info:
Die - MFT Chicken Wire
Distress Oxides - Squeezed Lemonade, Scattered Straw, 
Fossilized Amber and Wild Honey
Colouring - Copics
Hat and Honey Stick- Y15 YR23/24 E25/27/79
Skin - E000/00/11 R20
Coat and Flowers - R81/83/85 YR21
Leaves YG23/25
Gold Watercolour Paint

Hope you like my make today - it's perfect weather here in the UK for the bees to be around gathering their pollen...  to make that luscious honey!

Hope you have a lovely weekend... and.. Happy Crafting!

Taylored Expressions Triple Slim Layering Stencil set

Hi Lovelies...

Today I'm sharing some cards I made a little while back, but have been struggling to photograph.  Know the feeling???  I so wish I had a magic wand that would help me capture the actual colours that the card is!!!

Anyway.. I'm loving the Taylored Expressions Triple Slim Layering Stencil set...  and I was in a pastel frame of mind, so out came my ink pads - here I'm showing  a couple of the results in close up..

I die-cut the birthday word from gold mirri card, but it's difficult to see.  The die is by Spellbinders and is from the Yana's Scripty Sentiment set.

Next, it was a tall card... the sentiment is stamped with Versamark and heat embossing with gold.. again, difficult to pick up on the photograph.  The sentiment stamp is from the Mama Elephant Scripty Sentiments set.

Now lastly... I wanted to share this envelope!  Exciting or what???  LOL!  Well yes, for me it is...  as I could not find envelopes to fit this shape of card that weren't tremendously expensive.  Sooo, out came my score-board - I did some measurements - I did some cutting, scoring and sticking - and this is the result using pink paper that I had in stock.  I was really thrilled how it turned out and it's such a perfect size!

Well it's another hot day here in the UK...  so I'm off to try and keep cool!

LTTS Doodles Lory Flamingo

Hi Peeps...

Hope you're all well and enjoying some crafting time!

I've been playing with some new digital images I got from LTTS Doodles - they're a delight to colour as they have such clean lines...  love them!

Today I've coloured up the fabulous Lory Flamingo - and as the characters are having a hug, I thought that was the perfect word to have as a sentiment.  I die cut the letters, then stacked them four high to give depth.  The final layer of the word, I cut from the leftover cardstock I'd already blended for the background.  I coloured the fussy cut the image, then adhered her with the letters, after I'd diecut the border.
