Bellarific Friday- Petunia has a party!

So Friday has rolled around again- honestly where has September gone?!
If you read Em's blog last week you will have seen that there is a new release coming!! Yikes!! I've been working on a few sneaky peeks and you are going to LOVE the new stamps- including another NEW range!
It was sketch time over at Bellarific Friday and I decided to ink up the gorgeous Petunia- this stamp is called Petunia Has A Party...

Petunia was coloured with copics and a little white gel pen added for highlights. The sentiment came with the main stamp. Papers are by Echo Park. Main fishtail die is by MFT (just the end used twice). I added some little party touches like the balloons and party hat and there you have it!

Your close up. 
Hopefully you can see the range of colours I used on Petunia including some yellow, purple and brown tones. 
This was your sketch.

Here is your colour inspiration photo for next week. Aren't they a gorgeous combo?
Usual deets apply- check them out here.

Thank you so much for visiting me and for all your lovely comments xxx

Lili of the Valley- Skating Friends

Hi ya. 
Today I've got a very CAS LOTV card to show you. I find them so hard to make especially with my addiction to pretty papers but I'm quite liking this one! lol.
This is a card for the LOTV DT Collective and features Skating Friends...

This is going to be a Christmas card for my sis- it's just the cutest!! I coloured with copics and fussy cut. The background is just a single sheet of DP that I stamped with my giant MFT Snowfall Background stamp. I then embossed with white using Simon Says fine detail embossing powder. Snowflake die is by PTI. Sentiment tags are of course LOTV. I then added some snow on the girls using my Kirarina Wink pen.

Here's your close up!
Aren't they such a sweet couple?!

See you later in the week x

Bellarific Friday- Queen Hoppy Poppy

Well helloooo my crafty friends!
How are you all?

This week's Bellarific Friday was a sketch and the DT used the STAMP OF THE MONTH which is .....QUEEN HOPPY POPPY! Ta dah!
Queen Hoppy Poppy has 20% off all month!

Her Royal Cuteness is coloured with copics and I paper pieced her dressing then restamped her arms and cup of tea so I could layer them over the dress. Papers are by Kaisercraft- I was trying to find purples/reds/yellows to be quite regal and these fitted the bill perfectly. Don't you just love the little teapot charm? The accompanying sentiment I stamped inside reads "tea (n.) a hug in a cup." How adorable is that?!

Here is your sketch for next week's challenge! Nice and simple, no?
Get your entry into Em by Thursday- details are here.

Hope to see you soon xxx

Lili of the Valley- Love Balloon!

Hello LOTV fans!
Today I'm here with my second September card for the LOTV DT Collective showcasing Love Balloon. 
I looooove this stamp so much- such an adorable couple, love him whispering something into her ear.
I've made this for a future anniversary card for hubbie...

I've coloured Love Balloon with copics and added a Lyra pencil shadow underneath. I did a bit of partial die cutting to exclude the balloon from the main die cut. Love the colours on these papers loads- love the clash of pink and red together! The heart banners are Simon Says Stamp dies and "love" is PTI. I die cut both parts of the sentiment using 2 layers of chipboard that I stuck together and then added cardstock on top.

Here is your close up!

Thanks so much for stopping by- I really appreciate it.
See you on Friday for another Bellarific Challenge! x

Bellarific Friday- Uptownie Reilly Loves To Relax

So how are you all this fine Friday?
Today's Bellarific Friday was a sketch (see below). I decided to use the fabulous Reilly Loves To Relax- you can just tell she's fabulous can't you?!

I coloured Reilly with copics, paper pieced and then coloured detail onto her chair, and added lyra pencil shadow underneath. I didn't use the sentiment that came with Reilly, instead I decided to use the sentiment that comes with Madison Has A Margarita. These gorgeous papers are by Pebbles.

Here was your sketch.

Next week's challenge is nice and easy- PAPER PIECING. Usual deets apply.

As it's the first Friday of October, the DT will be using the STAMP OF THE MONTH which you will then be able to buy with 20% off for the whole of October!!

See you soon xxx

Bellarific Friday- Farrah Loves Flashdance!

Hey peeps!
Friday has rolled around again so quickly. Schools are back so I'm being kept pretty busy with all our son's toddler groups- isn't it amazing what's on offer for kids nowadays?! We had to pretty much make our own amusement when we were kids! Now I'm sounding really old!

Anyhoo back onto the matter at hand- this week's Bellarific Friday Challenge.
This week's challenge was a zesty-coloured inspiration photo (below)...

I decided to use the fabulous Farrah Loves Flashdance (she's a maniac, maniac...) Ha ha love it!  How much do you love an '80s Uptownie?! Soooo cool. Farrah is coloured with copics and fussy cut. I used a white gel pen for some fine detail on her hair bow. Papers and a large die pretty much finish it off! Easy peasy.

Here is your close up!

.... and another

Here was your inspiration photo. Love love those bright colours- they are definitely my sort of colours!

Here is your sketch for next week's challenge. Can't wait to see all your entries. All you need to know about entering is here.
