Some Colourful Inspiration

Today's Bellariffic Friday's challenge was an inspiration photo


I decided to make a birthday card because of the delicious cake so I used Stamping Bella's Uptown Girl Ava Loves to Celebrate.


The image is stamped with memento tuxedo black ink onto bella's bestest cream card stock and coloured with copics.  I shaded around the image with antique linen distress ink.  The dp is Simple stories Fabulous.   I added some sequins to blink up the card.

Da Bella is having a sale!!!!  She has about 30 new images in her new release so she needs to make some room so EVERYTHING in the store is 25% off!!!  Make sure you stop by Stamping Bella this weekend and do some shopping 

Please stop by Bloggabella to see the rest of the babes and sistah's creations.  Next week we have a sketch - use any current Stamping Bella image and email your card to Em by Thursday for a chance to win the monthly prize

Sweet Sunday 232

It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge from Karen (SSSC232)


For my card this week I used Stamping Bella's Annie from Arthur and Annie (love how they are 2 separate images)


The image is stamped with memento tuxedo black ink onto bella's bestest card stock and coloured with copics.  I then fussy cut the image out to mount on the black background.  The dp is BG's Knee Highs.  I layered 2 buttons in the corner - like the look but not good for mailing!

Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers blogs to see their creations and if you play along with us this week remember to link your card to Karen's Blog.

Getting Inky....

Happy Friday - today's Bellariffic Fridays challenge was a sketch


I took some liberties with the sketch - I made my card a standard 41/4 x 51/2 instead of a square card because Lesliebella was just here for a visit (so was Motzabella) and when Lesliebella was here we pulled out all my inks, texture pastes, stencils, and sprays and played  - here's a  picture of my hands Lesliebella was a little nervous at first....

The sentiment I used for my card is from Stamping Bella's Uptown Girls Beatrice and Barbara are Besties.  

The sentiment is stamped with gathered twigs distress ink then embossed.  I then used the distress inks to shade around the sentiment.  For my card I made the background using glass bead texture paste with a stencil on kraft paper.  When it first dried we didn't Love it - really we didn't even Like it.  Then I added the distress inks (worn lipstick and gathered twigs) and then sprayed the base with Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst spray in Creme Brûlée and WOW what a difference!

Please stop by Bloggabella to see the rest of the babes creations.  Next weeks Bellariffic Friday challenge an Inspiration challenge - just take a peek at the photo and use any current Stamping Bella image and send your card to Em by Thursday to be included on Bloggabella

Sweet Sunday 230

Happy Sunday - I hope everyone is having a great weekend; it's a long weekend here- WOHOO

Karen's sketch (SSSC230) had me a little stumped....

I decided to flip the sketch....


For my card I used MFT's Funky Floral stencil with dusty concord distress ink for the base layer and panel.  The sentiment is from Stampers Anonymous Stuff to Say set.  I stamped the sentiment with stazon gothic purple ink and used a matte embossing folder.  I added the rhinestones and the flower is from elizabeths dies.

Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers blogs and remember if you play along with us this week link your card on Karen's blog

Do More...

Today's Bellariffic Fridays challenge was a sketch - a nice simple not too fussy sketch which I loved.


For my card I inked up Senior-ita Gloria


The image is stamped with mementos tuxedo black ink onto bella's bestest paper and coloured with both copics and pencils blended with mineral spirits.  Instead of a DP I embossed my card stock using MFT's fishnet stencil.

I used the same colours on the inside of the card and used the same stripe panel for my sentiment which comes with this fabulous image.
