Latest card

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)!!

Have a good weekend everyone!!

Happy Thursday!!

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!

More cards...

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)!!

Some cards...

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!!

First post

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)!!

Thanks again for stopping by!!
