Pink & Brown Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Can you believe it's already Friday !!!! This week just flew by and it is Bellarific Friday Challenge time again. So go and check out the gorgeous cards made by the Bellarific Babes and other Bellarific lovers. You will find these cards at It is amazing how many talented and creative stampers there are out there.
This week the challenge was pink and brown, and I just love these colours together. I used Little Emmy, a sneak peak of what is to come next week, for the Bella release . I just love this little girl especially that she looks exactly like my adorable granddaughter.
I used Lyra pencils and odorless mineral spirits to colour Little Emmy, and put little dots on her skirt with a micro black pen. I layered with Bo Bunny brown polka dot card stock and pink prism card stock. I used a Fiskars scallop punch and a Marvy flower punch along with Bon Bons as the embelishment. Of course all supplies are from
Can you believe it no glitter!!!!! I felt that she was so cute that it didn't really need any glitter at all.
I can hardly wait to see what the next challenge will be and I hope you will all participate. You might be the lucky winner of $20 in Bella Bucks if you do .
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fantabulous weekend.

Bellarific Friday Challenge

It's Friday already, can you believe it !!!!! The colour challenge at was so bright and happy and I just loved the colours. I chose the purple and lime green as my main colours.

To make the card I used the EK success border punch called a wave (I think), these border punches are just great and add so much to any card. Emily got them all in and I just had to buy all of the border punches of course. I then stamped the medium shadow circle with VersaMark so that you get a darker shade of the card stock. I used the oval Nestabilities to punch and emboss the white layer and also for the green scalloped oval.

I then stamped and coloured the flowers with Copic Markers

R32, 43, YR12, 14 YG 21, 23, and BVoo, o2.

I actually cut out the whole bunch of flowers and adhered it to the oval layer, and then stamped and coloured the flowers a second time, and cut out 3 of the flowers and popped them onto the bouquet. I used a C2 Copic marker to shade the whole outside of the bouquet, stamped the sentiment, and that's it.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to leave a comment on go to Blogabella and you might be the lucky winner of $20.

pretty in pink

Hope you all had a happy Passover and Easter with family and friends. I had a fabulous weekend with my kids and grandkids and enjoyed every second.

I wanted to share this card with you which I made a while ago. The stamps are from Stamping Bella, and they are called Big Fat Present (with Mini). You get a Mini Present stamp with it, so you can stamp the inside of the card or the envelope.

I started by punching a square in the center of my layer, then I crimped the center with a crimper. I don't know how well you will be able to see it on the screen, but it really is crimped. If you don't have a crimper, you can use your Score Pal. I then popped up the crimped layer, and stamped the present in the center. I coloured it with Lyra pencils and odorless mineral spirits, and, of course used a lot of glitter to finish it off. This card was inspired by my friend Irene.
Hope you like this card

Colour challenge

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all having a fantabulous weekend and have lots of stamping time. For a change, I am doing all the cutting and other prep work for my up coming Ketto 2 class next week. I still have at least 2 more days of work, and then onto the next class. I do take a few minutes here and there to design new cards, and yes , I still do LOVE it.

Here is the Bellarific Friday challenge card that I did for this week. The colours were so yummy and happy that I knew exactly what I was going to do. I felt that flowers would be perfect to colour in, and that patterned paper would finish the card off. Emily, at Stamping Bella, got in these fabulous pouches of different, incredibly, coloured buttons, and they are flat-backed, so thay are very easy to adhere to card stock (which I bought every one of them), so I used the orange button as an embellishment.

I used Lyra pencils and odorless mineral spirits, glitter in the center of the flowers, and Collage Press patterned paper for the background.

Thanks so much for stopping by, please leave me a comment and let me know that you were here.
