Happy Birthday Dana

It was Dana's birthday last month and I'm a little late with her card - thankfully she doesn't care it was just a wee bit late....and I couldn't put it on my blog until she received it in the mail!




I stamped the image, Tiny Townie Huggy Friends, with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured them with copics to resemble us.  Love that purple streak Dana has in her hair!  I used an old Freshly Made Sketch and adapted it a bit.  There's lots of Wink of Stella on "our" dresses and of course some glittery dots.

Hope you're having a good day.

The Littles Skating party

I think today is the first Bellariffic Friday of 2018, well I hope so because I'm using all Stamping Bella images :)

Today's card features the Littles collection.  I wanted to make it look like a skating party so used the Skating Rink Backdrop, The Littles Figure Skaters and for the tiny little penguin I used on of the images from the Little Bits Skating Quartet.   


I stamped the background with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  It was really super fast to colour up.  Next I stamped the skaters and the penguin and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.


I popped them up for some dimension and added a bow to the top of the card - I think it looks like a picture now :)

Hope you're having a good day.

Happy Birthday Darcy

Here's a birthday card I made for a friend at work, using the sweet PI Because You're Special.


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics.  I popped her up onto a scalloped die and added the sentiment on a fishtail flag.

Hope you're having a good day.

Happy New Year

I hope you all had a lovely relaxing holiday and today we're fresh into 2018!

I ran out of time before Christmas to post this last card.

I stamped the image, The Littles Toboganning, with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I added a felt snowflake and some red sparkly dots.

Hope you're having a good day.

Polar bear and the mouse

I inked up another new image from the Stuffie line at Stampingbella.  This is called Polar bear and the mouse - and you can see why - LOL.
  

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I popped him up on a tag and added a snowflake to finish it off.  
Hope you're having a good day.

Flurry of Love

Today's card features the sweet PI Flurry of Love (MFT).  I have always loved these PI images, they are so sweet and fast to colour up.


The layout is from an old 2015 Stampin' Up catalogue.  I used one of their new silver foil snowflakes behind the image.  The cardbase is stamped with a snowflake background and embossed with silver embossing powder.  I added a couple of sparkly dots to finish it off.

Hope you're having a good day.

Mini snowman

Today's card is a "mini" version of yesterday's card :)


The image is called "Snow" (Purple Onion).  I found a little package of smaller notecards with the blue snowflakes already on them so all I needed to do was colour the image and add him on top of the snowflake.  

Hope you're having a good day.

Cheerio.....Leslie

Jolly snowman

For today's card I pulled out "Jolly" (Purple Onion).  I am on a roll with 'easy to make' cards and snowflakes and snowmen seem to fit the bill perfectly.  



The card base is sprayed with shimmer mist and then splattered with some Peacock Feathers Distress oxide ink mixed with a bit of water.  I then used the same ink and blended a circle shape which I covered with a large snowflake (MFT).  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured him with copics.  Snowmen are super fast to colour!  I fussy cut him out and popped him up for some dimension.

Come back tomorrow for the "mini" version - LOL.  

Hope you're having a good day.

Sparkly snowflakes

I love how this turned out!  Another super easy card to duplicate, assembly line style!

The card base is sprayed with shimmer mist - can't seem to stop using that!  I stamped a few random small snowflakes in white ink and added a tiny dot of red stickles to the middle of each one.  Then I used some sparkly red glitter paper to die cut some snowflakes (Tim Holtz) and added them to a bit of ribbon.  I put a sparkly dot in the middle of each of the snowflakes, stamped the sentiment (SU) and that's another card ready to go.   

Hope you're having a good day.

Stampin' Up to the rescue

It's been ages since I stamped using Stampin' Up images but I am so behind on my Christmas card making that I needed to find a quick, easy to duplicate card for this year.  I looked through the Holiday Catalogue and found one!  This is totally CASED from page 36 :).  

I used some silver cord instead of the trim they used and found a great pack of metalic designer paper at Michael's.  I sprayed the card base with some shimmer mist and it really is quite lovely in real life - so sparkly.  There were a few steps but once I got my assembly line going, I was able to crank out 24 of these - half in bronze and half in silver.  I added a few sequins to finish it off.


   
I hope you're having a good day.

Cheerio.....Leslie
