Friends



Guess what day it is!! Bellarific Friday of course. This week at Stamping Bella we had a sketch to work with and I decided to flip it around to make it work with the image I wanted to use.  


For my card, I have used one of the new images called Especially for you Petunia. The image has been coloured with Prismacolour Pencils and Gamsol.  I really like how it turned out.  

Next week's challenge is called Stitch it up.  We want to see stitching in some way on your card. 

We'd love for you to participate.  Make sure you use a current image (if you aren't sure, type the stamps' name into the search bar) and then get your card into Emily by Thursday evening at emily@stampingbella.com

Have a glass


Hi there!!! Another week and another Bellarific Friday coming your way. This week we had a great inspiration pic to work with and to be honest there are so many ways this could have been interpreted.  

I decided to focus on the  wine glass so I thought that the Uptown Girl called Opal the Optimist. I know we'd all love to be sipping that fantastic glass of wine in front of the Eiffel Tower!!! I've used the current Freshly Made sketch for my card. 

Check out next week's challenge!! A fantastic sketch!!!

Stop Rushing


Hi there!!! How true is this quote??? It's amazing how we all rush through life and don't take the time to truly enjoy it.  This week at Stamping Bella we had a sketch to work with and to be honest, it scared the living daylights out of me when I first saw it. 

I know, I know... there are only 9 squares in the sketch and I have 12... Well, that's what you're going to get. I just couldn't get something I loved with the 9 squares but for some reason 12 seemed so much easier.  For my card I have used one of the Big Word sets called "Stop Rushing". The sentiment was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black, clear embossed and then sponged with Pink Pirouette ink. Easy peasy!!! I love the look of it. It makes such an impact!! 

Next week's challenge is an inspiration challenge and I LOVE IT!! There are so many ways you could interpret the image.... My wheels are turning.

Got cupcakes?



Another week? Another cupcake? LOL!!! Just kidding!! It's Bellarific Friday!! It's the first Friday of the month so all of the Bella Babes are using this month's Stamp of the Month called Birthday Hamster. This particular stamp is 20% off all month long!! This week's challenge is to use either Washi tape or ribbon on our cards. I decided to go with Washi tape and used it on the cupcake wrapper as well as at the top of the card.  I'm loving how it turned out. I wanted to use the sentiment that comes with the card but then I couldn't decide on the placement so I've left it off. 

Next week's challenge is a sketch !! This one is making me put my thinking cap on....

Need a drink?


Hey there!!! OMG... I can't wait!! I know that my Stamping Bella goodies should be arriving any day now. Have I mentioned I'm excited??? This week at Stamping Bella, we had a sketch to work with and to be honest, all of the layers terrified me at first.  I wasn't sure what I was going to do. Then I realized one of my BFF's birthdays is coming up so I knew I had to use Victoria and Juliette's night out. 

Next week's challenge is using washi tape or ribbon on your cards!!! Ohh..... so many ideas!! And next week, we'll also reveal the next Stamp of the month!!!
