Bellariffic Friday - Monochromatic

Does this count as monochromatic?  It is just one I'm saying it does! :)

I made this for a friend at work whose brother is getting married.  I love when I can make a card that's a special order.....from the bride and groom's hair colour to the wedding colours - love it!

This Uptown image was perfect for the happy couple!  I kept the card pretty simple so that all the attention is on the bride and it should be :)  I had a bow on it but it looked a bit too bulky so changed it and added the three flowers.

The inside was also very simple.

Here are the copics I used.

Here's wishing them both a wonderful wedding day and many years of happiness.


Stamps:  Uptown Couple Brett and Brenda
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo black ink, copics
Paper:  Grapesicle, Bella's Bestest cream
Other:  Grapesicle grosgrain ribbon, Mini Mulberry Paper Roses, SU Vanilla Flower Trim, Tied Together embossing folder, glitter

Paddington Bear - SSSC192

Here's a quick cute card I made for a friend across the pond!  She actually gave me this stamp and I'm sorry to say I've only just inked it up.  Paddington is adorable!  I used a Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge SSSC192 for my layout.

I surprised myself by not adding any embellishments!  It's going overseas so embellishments can be a problem,  but I really just liked it as it is...embellishment free. :)

Here are the copics I used.


Stamps:  Paddington Bear (Stempels), You make my day
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo black ink, copics
Paper:  SU brilliant Blue, Real Red, Echo Park "A Boy's Life"

Bellariffic Friday - Circles

Today's Bellariffic Friday is all about circles.  I took this literally with my paper, my image and my embellishments.  This birthday card is headed to my cousin in England.  Officially, he's a teenager now - 13 years old! 

The layout is the SSSC191.  I wasn't able to play along with the sketch in time but really liked the layout so stored it away for future use and it was perfect with the circle in it!  I added a glob of Crystal Effects to the soccer ball.

Here are the copics I used.


Stamps:  Jackson the Champion
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo black ink, copics
Paper:  SU Not Quite Navy, Tangerine Tango, MME Lime Twist Out of the Blue
Other:  Circle nesties, Fishtail Flags Stax die-namics, Fishtail Flags Layers Stax die-namics, rhinestones, Crystal Effects

Bellariffic Friday - Sketch 18

Well, did you survive this week with the back to school and back to routines?  I'm glad it was a short week!  Today's Bellariffic Friday is Sketch 18 and I went the chic route, not the cute route!

Uptown Girl Audrey looks right at home in Paris, don't you think?

I went with my "go to" inside layout - I just love the Fishtail Flags!  Here are the copics I used.


Stamps:  Audrey Loves her Makeup
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo black ink, copics
Paper:  SU Riding Hood Red, MME Lost and Found Union Square
Other:  MFT Fishtail Flags STAX die-namic, MFT Simply Scallops die-namic, SU Early Espresso ribbon, pearls, glitter

Violin Girl - MFTWSC140

This week's MFTWSC140 sketch had me stumped at first, but then I reminded myself "don't stress, it's just a sketch, it's just a starting point, think outside the box, LOL" and here's what I came up with.  This is for a friend who is headed to the opera and this little PI was too perfect!

I shortened the Let's Chat die-namic to fit the sentiment on the front.  MFT has a great video here showing you how.  On the inside I used a sentiment from Mouse in the House -  It's Your Birthday.

Here are the copics I used.


Stamps:  PI Violin Girl, Mouse in the House - It's Your Birthday
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo black ink, copics
Paper:  SU Sahara Sand, MME Indie Chic "Nutmeg", Lilybeedesign "Head over Heels"

Birthday Roses

I can't believe it's September 1st - where did the summer go? :(

Today I made a birthday card for Auntie Mollie.  She lives in England, so it had to be embellishment free to make Canada Post happy and have NO green on it to make Auntie Mollie happy.  See, she doesn't like green.  Try to make a card with absolutely no green - it's really hard!

I remember Karen made this card last week and I loved the cool in-lay trick on it.  I decided to CASE it for Auntie Mollie's card.  I added stickles on the letters and I sprayed the stamped roses with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist for more sparkle.  It looks so pretty but is hard to see in the photo.


Stamps:  MPD Blooming Roses
Ink:  SU Pretty in Pink and Rose Red
Paper:  SU Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Pink Pirouette
Other:  Simply Scallops die-namic, Happy Birthday die-namic, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Marshmallow, Stardust Stickles, rhinestones
