Lulu loves poppies


Hi there!!! A new month and a new Bellarific Friday!! And it also means an introduction of a new Bella babe who is one of my stamping idols, Michelle Boyer!!! Make sure you check out her blog!!!! 

This week at Stamping Bella, we had a great colour inspiration challenge.


I love the colour combo and knew automatically what DP I'd use. Thank goodness I always hoard DP. LOL!! This Dp is an old |Basic Grey pad from years ago. For my card, I am using the new Stamp of the Month called Lulu Loves Poppies which is 20% off all month long. The layout for my card is the current Retro Sketch challenge. I've stamped the image with Archival black ink and then coloured with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol.

Next week's challenge is a sketch


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

Your own Greatness


Do you ever have one of those cards that keep evolving and you think to yourself "what did I just do? Why couldn't I leave it alone?".  For my card, it started out with some Gelatos and then I put the Big Words sentiment called Sometimes people forget from Stamping Bella.  After that I decided it needed some Dylusions spray... Big mistake, I made a huge mess when I added a second colour of it. So... I just kind of smeared everything together. I decided I wasn't done so I used the Full Circle Element in white ink to the corner edges. One thing I have to remember when using some of the mixed media goodies is that just let it evolve, have fun and make it happen.

How do you spell love?


How many of you have had a crazy busy week?? It's been a busy one for me, I can't wait until my days off so that I can relax!! This week at Stamping Bella, we had another sketch to work with. 


For my card, I decided I want to use one of the Big Words sets called How do you spell love?  I kept it really simple and then rather than using the banner I decided to use some die cut hearts instead. I cheated... I know. 

Next week's challenge is an inspiration, check it out!!

Party Time


Hi there!!! Sorry that my blog has been so quiet. I was sick as a dog last week so no crafty time for me. I took up residence on my couch under a fluffy blanket in hopes I would get better. LOL.  This week at Stamping Bella, we had a sketch to work with and I chose to use my fave character - Petunia!!! I think I'm having a love affair with anything Petunia. For this card, I used the image called Petunia has a party

Next week's challenge is Birthday wishes.  We want to see birthday cards!!! There are so many fun images you can play with for this challenge. I can't wait to see what you all come  up with. 

Don't forget that this month's special image is Rebecca loves to read so she's 20% off all month.

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.
