Happy Friday

Hey everyone,

Do you believe it is Friday already. Time just seems to be flying by so quickly. Well you know that Friday, my favourite day of the week, is Bellarific challenge at Stamping Bella, and, this time the challenge was to use gold and lots of bling or glitter.

I decided to use the mini Happy Flowers stamp and the Circle Shadow stamp. I coloured the flowers with Lyra coloured pencils and mineral spirits. On the shadow stamps I used Memento ink in 3 different colours . I punched the 2 fancy squares with McGill punches and the polka dot card stock with the Label die from QuicKutz. I also embossed the purple card stock with QuicKutz embossing folder circles (I think that is the name). I edged the purple card stock with a gold Pilot marker, and heat embossed the sentiment with the new Zing embossing powder. I just love this embossing powder. It is so detailed, and I find it so easy to emboss. The gold BonBonz and purple ribbon finish off the card.
I find myself using dies and punches more and more often. I find that they make card making so much easier and add so much to the finished look of the card.
Don't forget to check out the great cards that everyone made at

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Have a great weekend.
