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.

Bellariffic Friday - Mojobella sketch 36

I took a little break from stamping - courtesy of a nasty cold that turned into bronchitis!  I'm feeling much better now and wanted to play along with this week's Bellariffic Friday sketch.  


I stamped the image Tiny Townie Frida Loves Frosty with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I added lots of glitter to the trim on her coat and three little dots finished it off.

Hope you're having a good day.

Happy Halloween

It's "Carve a Pumpkin Day" which seems appropriate as it's Halloween - LOL!



I stamped the three little squidgy images from Squidgy Pumpkin Trio with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured them with copics.  I foolishly didn't order the coordinating die so had to fussy cut them out.  I added the BOO from Tiny Townie Willow the Witch.  

Have a safe and spooktacular Halloween!

Bellariffic Friday - Inspiration Challenge #10

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was this beautiful fall photo.



For my card I used the sweet Tiny Townie Fay Loves Fall.  

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I used the coordinating die to cut her out and then fussy cut some of the extra leaves off.  The sentiment is from Uptown Girl Serena Has A Sign.

Enjoy the weekend.

Bellariffic Friday - Use a circle

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was Use a Circle.  I used several circles, in my pattern paper, my background for the images and the sentiment.


I stamped those crazy Skating Chicks with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured them with copics.  I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and popped them up on a background circle.  The sentiment comes with the three chick images.
