Sorry that I haven't posted for a while. I've been busy with work and working on our new house that I haven't really had much time to make many new cards. Hopefully this weekend, I can squeeze some card making time in (I need to use all the new stuff that I bought in the States last Saturday...especially my Cuttlebug).
This is a card that I made about a week or two ago from my Bella Sistah, Simone. I used the kittycattabella stamp from Stamping Bella (I love this stamp because it reminds me of me and my cats). I embossed the image and coloured it in with Tombow markers. I stuck with pink and brown as my card colours and tried to put those colours into my brads as well. It's a simple card but I like it.
Hopefully everyone gets a chance to use the free shipping code from Stamping Bella this weekend (I did and I can't wait to get my package in the mail)...thanks to Emily (she's the best)!!
Hope everyone has been having a great week!!I've created 3 more cards for everyone to check out!! The first two were made at a class last night, and the last card I made tonight to send to one of my friends who I haven't seen in a while.
So for the first card, I used Tombow markers to colour the design on watercolour paper (I love what a little bit of marker and water can do). I also used the Cuttlebug, some Nestabilities, and some embossing folders for the main parts of the card (can't wait for the weekend as I am FINALLY going to purchase a Cuttlebug of my own!). After adding some Mica flakes, ribbon, and a shaped clip, the card was done (and I LOVE how it turned out!!).
The second card can be used as a gift card holder. We used the Cuttlebug and the Nestabilities for the circles, but other than that we just used a template for the rest of the card. I included two pictures of the card just so you can see the card as a whole and then the two different parts of the card. I like how this card turned out too!
And the final card was made using the Funky Clothesline image and the Let's Hang Out sentiment from Stamping Bella. I just kept this card simple but I like the end result!
Anyways, thanks for stopping by to check out my newest cards! Hopefully I'll get to make some more cards this weekend!
On this first card , I used the Cosmobella from Stamping Bella , embossed her, and coloured her in with Tombow markers and added some brads next to her. I also used the Cuttlebug to create the flower in the top corner and secured it with a brad.
Using a hollyhock stamp from Sunshine Designs, I stamped the image 3 times on the bigger white cardstock, then once on the smaller piece of white cardstock. I used Tombow markers to colour them in and added Stickles for some sparkle. I also added some pop dots to make the smaller image stand out.
This is one of the most recent cards that I have made (I made it at the beginning of this month). All the ink used was from the Memento Ink line (love those inks!!). Again, I used the Cuttlebug to create the flower and secured it with a brad. I added Quickie Glue and glitter to make the butterfly sparkle.
And this last card is another card that I made at the beginning of the month All the ink is from the Memento line. I used 2 different shades of green and 2 different shades of blue from the to create the sky and the grass. I stamped the leaf image using another shade of green ink and I stamped the flowers 3 times. After embossing them, I used 2 shades of blue and a shade of grey to colour them in and cut them out by hand. I used a Souffle pen to dot the white sections of the flowers. The very top flower is secured with a pop dot and has a bauble for some added pizzazz.
All of the above cards were made at classes that I attend at a local stamping/scrapbooking store. Thanks again for checking out some of my newer cards (I still have more pics of cards to add soon)!!
This first card I made for my niece's birthday this year. I used EK Success Memory Pencils to colour the presents.
This second card I made for my sister-in-law's birthday this year using the Cuppacakeabella stamp from Stamping Bella. I coloured her in with Tombow markers.
This card I made for my mom and step-dad for Valentine's Day this year. I coloured the image with EK Success Memory Pencils.
This card I made for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day this year. I used the same image from above (I really like it) but chose not to colour it in. I also really like the Valentine paper.
I made these two cards for my mom and my boyfriend's mom for Mother's Day this year. I really liked the image that I chose so I decided to use it for both of their cards. I embossed the image and added Stickles to make it sparkle a bit.
Sorry that I don't know which company makes the paper I chose or the ribbons I chose. Once I get pictures of the other cards that I have made, I'll post them up here as well. Thanks again for stopping by!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I've been stamping for 7 months now and I decided to start this blog to share some of the cards that I have made since then (so if anyone has any comments or tips for me, please feel free to share them!!). I was also inspired to start this blog after viewing some of the work doing by the talented ladies in the bellaholicsanonymous group that I belong to (if you love stamping and you love Stamping Bella stamps, you should check out this group)!!
