Happy Friday!

Hey Crafty Peeps - welcome back for another Bellariffic Friday.  This is for Sketch Challenge 25 and I inked up Door with Wreath by Mo Manning

This Stamping Bella sketch challenge gave me the idea of snow drifts... and of course another excuse to use glitter - lol.  Love this Wonderland paper from Studio Calico and the white cardstock is simply Whisper White from SU.  Cranberry Crisp bow is made with the Lil Inker Designs mini bow die - great size for cards.  Sentiment from Verve.

I love the Christmas feel of this card. It's just simple and a teeny bit rustic.  I added a little tulle and a few pearls... not a lot of fussing.  Haven't finished the inside just yet... I'm looking for just the right sentiment.

Have a great weekend all!!  Grab a coffee & treat yourself to a little browse of all the gorgeous cards on Bloggabella.

Bismarck's Christmas

Love this little guy... but hate what I've done to his poor eyes... looks like he's been up for days... LOL.  This is Bismarck from Stamping Bella

I think I've had this paper as long as I've been making cards... called Paper Pizazz.  It must have been on sale because I've got an endless supply.  I coloured up Bismarck with my Copics and added a little glitter, some sheer ribbon & a gem stone.  His sleepness-nights-look was courtesy of my black glaze pen. 

Love the Marvelous Squares die from Spellbinders!  Endless possibilities.  I've sewn down a couple of layers and then propped the main image up with double sided foam tape.

Sentiment is from a Verve set and that little snowflake is a die from MFT.  Off to work on my Bellariffic Friday card... see you back here then!!

A few days late...

Popping in to post last Friday's Bellariffic card for the create-a-tag challenge. I'm running behind this year... 'tis the season.  I created my tag in a card format and used Polly Packages as my focal point.

I used various papers including American Crafts (Kringle & Co), Simple Stories (Handmade Holiday) and my all-time fav... Basic Grey (Aspen Frost).

Used dies from MFT:  (1) Stacking Stars and (2) Tag You're It... and from L'il Inker Designes, I used the faux stitching rectangles. That gorgeous green piped nylon ribbon is from Martha Stewart (really does what it's  And as you can see my addiction with glitter is not getting any better. 

Kept the inside fairly simple and added Polly once more stamped lightly in SU Mellow Moss.  Christmas sentiment from Verve.

Ready to take a stab at this Friday's Sketch Challenge?  Looks pretty easy!  And you can check out Bloggabella for a little inspiration... amazing cards on there lately - wow!!

Shoot for the Moon

Hey crafty peeps - thanks for stopping back!  I've got a little non-Christmas Bella card combining 2 stamp sets:  (1) Journal your Art Out Happy Silhouettes Graffitti and (2) Mabel is reaching for the stars (sentiment):

I love the freedom of these silhouettes stamps (this is just 1 of 3)... and they are pretty versatile with all the sentiments out there that you would use with them.

I used my Lil Inker Designs faux stitching rectangle dies along with the mini bow die. The stars are MFT.  Didn't add much to this, a few pearls and some glitter.

Finished off the inside with a lighter version of the Stamping Bella silhouette stamp and another die cut star. 

See you back Friday for the theme challenge of "create a tag".  You can either create the tag alone or use it as a focal point on your card.  And as always... check out Bloggabella for your chance to win!!

Later gator...
