My Favourite Kind

Another week and another fun challenge at Stamping Bella. This week we had a fantastic inspiration image so I decided to focus on the softer colours.  I've taken on a new job where I work which has reduced my crafty time dramatically so I needed something a little quicker to make. I decided to use the sentiment from the set called "Ramona and her Wagon" which packs a punch all on its own. See, you can make a great card and you don't have to colour. 

NExt week's challenge is a nice and clean sketch for you. 

Make sure you get your card in to Em by Thursday evening.

Looking fabulous

Hi there!!! Hope you've all been having a great month so far. This week's challenge at Stamping Bella was to add paper piecing to your cards. For my card, I decided to use the image called "Audrey Loves her make-up". Now if only I looked this fabulous!!! I can dream right??? LOL!!!! I've used an assortment of MME papers for the card and then of course I had to add the tulle ruffle trim to make it a little bit more girly looking.

Next weeks' challenge is a sketch. 

Make sure you get your cards in to Emily by Thursday evening!!

Puppy Love

Hey there!!! I hope you've all been enjoying the Labour Day weekend. It's so nice for me to get my days off back to back so I'm a happy camper :-)  As soon as I saw this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge, I knew I had to play. Of course, I couldn't leave things alone so I made it vertical rather than horizontal.  For the image, I have used the fun image from Stamping Bella called Butch and Mimi. I used a valentine's line from this past year (not sure of the line, sorry).  I kept a sentiment off the card so that I could figure it out when I actually give the card away. 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

Nothing but a tutu....

I keep looking at this fabulous image from Stamping Bella called Tallulah in her Tutu and wasn't sure what I wanted to do with her until I noticed the pink tulle ribbon sitting on my desk and I thought perfect!!! I wanted to keep my card relatively simple so rather than colouring the entire image I decided to only colour the crown and the balloon, both of which then got doused with Diamond  Stickles!! Gotta love stickles. 

It just goes to show that you don't always have to colour your images and they can still pack a punch :-)

Time to Relax

Hey there!!! Another Friday which means Bellarific Friday!! This week we had a nice simple sketch to work with :-) 

With summer quickly coming to an end... BOO!!! I decided I wanted to use the Uptown Girl called Sandy and her Sombrero. She has been stamped with Archival Black ink and then colored with Prismacolor Pencils and gamsol.  I changed up the sentiment flag a little bit to make it a little easier (In other words, I couldn't get my flag to fold right... LOL). The sentiment comes from a set called Little Umbrella that is currently out of stock. OOPS!!! 

Next week's challenge is "Paper Piecing". Make sure you paper piece something on your card. Perfect for those fabulous Uptown Girls!!! 

Make sure you get your card in to Emily at by Thursday evening at 10EST.

Say Cheese

Hi there!! I had a bit of fun last night playing with some of the journalling sets from Stamping Bella. For some reason, I have had this one brewing in my mind for awhile. For my card, I have used the sets called Blabbity Bla and Life Documented. I placed them on a large stamping block all over the place and then stamped with Archival Black ink. I then added a wooden veneer Polaroid frame to highlight the Say cheese sentiment. I'm kind of wishing I stamped that particular sentiment in a different colour.... Oh well....
