Stamping Bella- Edna The Everything Fairy!


Hope you're all having a lovely day so far. Today I have a stamp from the Edna collection @ Stamping Bella to share with you. This is Edna The Everything Fairy...

Now I must admit I made a bit of a boo boo with colouring on this image. I coloured the leotard last and unfortunately had a very sticky pen which kind of ruined the image but being resourceful (and lazy), I didn't want to have to start all over again so this is my rescued version. OK, I know it's not perfect but hopefully you will be kind! So I coloured Edna with copics and over stamped the sentiment. I did quite a simple layout with the papers beneath and adhered the image over the top. I added a cute tag by PTI, some gold stars and some Stickles.

See you soon! x

Lili Of The Valley- Little Nurse

Hallo crafty people,

Hope you're all doing well and enjoying some crafty time. Today I have a sweet get well soon image from LOTV to share...

This stamp is called Little Nurse. I have no idea whether this is available as a digi. I'm quite confused by the direction LOTV have been heading- I find it quite sad really. I miss the old LOTV- am I the only one? Anyway, I coloured with Distress Markers. I created a sketch using these ancient Making Memories papers and stamped a LOTV postmark sentiment over the top. I added a sentiment from PTI and a little heart and pearl to finish.

Here's your close up. Such an adorable stamp!

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope to see you again soon x

Stamping Bella- Uptownie Curly Clara Needs Your Address

Hi everyone

Hope you're having a lovely day so far. This morning I have a Stamping Bella Uptownie card to share with you. It's Curly Clara Needs Your Address...

I didn't want the address part of this stamp so I carefully masked out the address bubble, actually losing a bit of her hair to ensure none of the bubble was showing and then drew back in any detail that was missing with a copic multiliner. I coloured with copics and added some Kirarina Wink gold pen on her top and then fussy cut. I made a shaker card using this stunning paper from MME and sequins from Lucy's. I die cut "hello" using an MFT Dienamic.

Here's your close up.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope to see you again soon! x

Reverse Confetti- Happy mail!


How are you all today? Good I hope. 

Today I have a Reverse Confetti CAS card featuring Happy Mail...

I coloured all the little elements with copics and then added highlights with a white gel pen. I then fussy cut all the elements. I simply stuck this airmail-inspired paper as a large focal point across the middle of the card and then adhered the elements over the top, raising the mice up on foam pads. I stamped the accompanying sentiment in the top corner. 

Supplies: Stamps (Reverse Confetti); Copics; Paper (Pink Paislee); White gel pen

Stamping Bella- You're The Pina To My Colada!!

Hi everyone! How are you all doing?
Wow, I can't believe how fast June went and now we're already in July!! My son breaks up from Kindergarten next week- where did the time go?!!!!

Did you all have fun with the 30 Day Colouring Challenge? Well I'm so happy to say I completed it and participated every day!! But now I'll be back blogging and soon you'll be seeing the the cards I coloured images for the 30 Day Colouring Challenge popping up!

As we're having all this glorious weather in the UK, I thought I'd go all tropical today and share Stamping Bella's Tropical Squidgies...

I LOVE these cool sweeties! I coloured with copics and fussycut.  I just loved these background papers so I didn't want to make the layout too complicated so I simply cut a strip of the foiled paper for the bottom of the card panel and added some die cut banners onto which I stamped the sentiment. Finally I added some matching stickers and die-cuts. 

Don't they just look the coolest?! I especially love their pineapple and coconut dresses! Coolio!

Pop back later in the week and I'll be sharing a LOTV card. Stay cool and thanks for popping by! x

Stamping Bella- New Release Sneaky Peeks Day 7- Uptown Girl Harper Goes Head First and Uptown Girl Wilma Loves Wine

Woo hoo!!! The new Stamping Bella release is tomorrow!!!!!!

Super excited! Have you made your shopping list yet? Well today I have two new Uptownies to add to your list! 

First up is Harper Goes Head First...

I coloured Harper with copics and added some white gel pen to her skirt. I then fussy cut her and the spoon separately. I created a background by masking off stripes on a card panel and blending Distress Inks and Distress Oxides over the top. I then splashed some water on the top for an ice cream condensation look!! ha ha! I then mounted Harper onto 3d foam pads and adhered the sentiment and spoon over the top. Finally I added some sequins.

Let's face it, haven't we all dreamed of doing that?! For me, it'd have to been chocolate though! 

 Now we've got Wilma Loves Wine....

Squeeeeeal!! I literally squealed when I saw this image! I LOVE it! I coloured Wilma with copics. I wanted to get that real feel of the transparency of the wine glass so I decided to colour the wine in the glass using Polychromos- my first time of using them! I also dotted some Stickles on her dress and bag. This is a gorgeously huge image so I decided to keep her the focal point and just added a few glamorous sequins!

Isn't she just stunning?
