A Beary Modern Bride!

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)

In the spirit of That Thing on 25 December We Don't Mention, I have not one, but two cards to share with you.

First up, I wanted to give Stamping Bella Melanie the Modern Bride a bit of a seasonal feel, without going all out. Who doesn't what a rock like that for Christmas?! I've used the sentiment from Stamping Bella Merry Everything and a Happy Always.


Next. Bears. Cute ones from Whimsy Stamps. You know what I love about this stamp? It comes in a set, with two other incredibly adorable little friends. Squeeeeeee!

Make a Scene!

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)


Don't you just love making a scene sometimes? ;) Of course pulling together lots of different elements and doing it yourself can seem a little intimidating, so you'll love the stamps from the new DoveArt Studios Release. All the work is done for you, so all you have to do is stamp, and colour. Sorted!

I enjoyed colouring Horse Barn so much, I went straight onto Bridge Over Water. I just haven't made a card with it yet.

Holiday Anya 5...........


Morning all!!

It's a Lou day for a make today and I have turned my little coloured TGF Holiday Anya 5 into a 'something' now!!!! she is just so sweet it was really easy to have some festive fun with her.

I have to admit to having a 'get the die to cut them out' addiction recently but it is just so nice to get that perfect little white edge around the stamp and so much fun ti watch it come to life like that with a little foam to pop her out underneath.

Thank you for popping in

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)


So. That Thing On 25 December We Don't Mention. It's coming. It's coming fast. And while I'm still not prepared to admit this, out loud and in a public place :) I will admit I had better start making some cards. And fast. Anyone know the last postal dates?

May All Your Wishes Come True

Hey everyone, it's Elaine, back again to share some more Stamping Bella inspiration today on the Dies to Die For blog.

Instead of sharing another Christmas card, I thought I'd share a little inspiration for your Christmas wishlist. ;) Who wouldn't love to find some of the gorgeous Bellas from Stamping Bella under the tree?



Stamp: Stamping Bella Balloonabella (incl. sentiment).
Colouring Medium: Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils.
Paper: Hot pressed watercolour paper.
Misc: MISTI Stamping Tool, Distress Inks
 
Just love her. So pretty, and a lot of fun to colour. You can find the rest of the revamped Bella stamps HERE at Dies to Die For.
 
If you would like to take a look at how I colour using coloured pencils, I filmed the colouring of another of the Bella images - Flowersbehindmybackabella.
 
Watch the video below or in HD over on YouTube.
 

 
As you can see, I use the pencils themselves to blend, without any solvent.
 
That's all for today, see you again next week. In the meantime, happy colouring!

Tiny Ninja's...................

HI-YAAAAAA!!

Little Mo kapowing in for you today! I have had a couple of weeks settling back into my school routine after the holidays but I had to have a make this morning because my new Mama Elelphant Tiny Ninja's arrived and I couldn't wait to rip them out of the packet!!!

I decided on a black and white theme for my card and used mummy's Die Namics Blueprints 24 for my card layout. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Blueprints sets! it makes it so much easier for me to learn the mechanics of putting a card layout together.

Thank you for popping in
