Back for another Stamping Bella Bellariffic Friday.  Here's the sketch for today:
I chose to change it a bit because I really wanted to use the stamp Rachel Loves The Rain from the Tiny Townies series.
I kinda like how she turned out.  I love the heart puddle and the hearts falling from the sky.  This stamp comes with the sentiment "You are my sunshine when skies are grey" and I've added that to the inside.

DIES:  Lil Inker Designs Stitched Mats / Memory Box Meridian Border

Looking forward to seeing every else's cards on Emily's Blog Post today!!

Today is Bellariffic Friday and this week's theme was to use the colours from the photo above.  I happen to have gobs of supplies for this because these are my favorite colours.  Even my little apartment is covered with these colours... and my bedroom even has a little beachy theme lol.  Anyway, here's my card using these colours:
I used Harry the Stuffie Gets Happy Mail.  Isn't he sweet?  I love the Stuffie Collection.  I coloured Harry with Copic Markers E70, 71, 74 & 77.  It's hard to see in the picture but I used glossy accents on the envelope so it shines beautifully.  I added a tiny little heart embellishment over the drawn heart.
DIES:  Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers / Penny Black Love Expressions / Memory Box Button Border / Frantic Stamper Tufted Cushion Panel / Spellbinders Victorian Pierceabilities

Can't wait to check out all of the other Stamping Bella cards using this colour combo!

Back soon,

I found this adorable picture on the internet and thought I might build a card around it.  I think it makes a nice Anniversary Card.
DIES:  Die Versions Whispers Quatrefoil background / MFT Pierced Oval Frames / MFT Rolled Roses

I love the sentiment... "I wish I could turn back the clock.  I'd find you sooner and love you longer".  I added the little wooden clock embellishment to finish it off.  :)

Gutted craft room yesterday and it's so tidy right now.  Boyfriend is golfing today... so it's time to go mess it up

Back soon,

I was pretty stoked to try my first Stamping Bella sketch challenge in a few years.  I didn't nail it exactly, but I think it's our own personal interpretation we're going for, right? At least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.  Here's the sketch:

And here's the inside:

DIES: Sue Wilson Belgian Collection (background) / L'il Inker Designs Stitched Mats / L'il Inker Designs Small Bow Die / Spellbinders Classic Squares Large.

The sentiment on the front was one I found on the internet years ago and still had it saved.  I thought it was a good fit and I just love this stamp as you can put anything you want in the bubble. 

Well thanks for the sketch Emily!

I'll be back before you know it.  :)

I know many times in my past (and hopefully my future) that this card would have been appropriate.
I saw this sweet picture on the internet and thought this sentiment would work.  I kinda giggled throughout while making it.  LOL
DIES:  Spellbinders Labels 40 and Lables 40 Decorative Elements (to make the frame) / Spellbinders Victorian Pierceabilities

Back tomorrow with my Bellariffic Friday Challenge card.  :)

Thought I'd try another birthday card.  This one has a sentiment that I typed on my computer.  I think it makes a great birthday greeting.
The papers are all SU cardstock.  I was just going to leave it with Whisper White & Baja Breeze, but at the last minute added the Early Espresso because it made a nice contrast.  The embossing at the bottom (which is a bit tricky to see in the picture) is actually just one of those strip-embossing-folders from Cuttlebug.
DIES:  MFT rolled flower / Memory Box Lavish Branch / Impression Obsession Die055-N

The inside is simply "Happy Birthday".
I think it would be fair to say I'm on a bit of a roll - LOL.  My craft room looks like a bomb went off but between you and I... I'd much prefer that then a tidy room without cards.  :)

Bye for now,

This sentiment really got me when I saw it on Pinterest.  I typed it out in a funky font style and used it as the focus of this card.
I think we all have someone in mind when we read this.  The background paper is a free digi I found ages ago... I really love the lacy feel it gives the card.

DIES:  Spellbinders Ovals Bliss / MFT Pierced Oval Frames / Lil Inker Designs small bow die

Some lace, pearls and flowers and it's done.  :)

Back today with a quick card.  I love using multiple dies together, flowers and pearls.  It's my go-to, which is probably why I struggle so much with masculine

The sentiment is computer printed and the paper is from a Prima Zephyr 6x6 paper stack.

DIES:  Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders 1 / Spellbinders Twisted Metal Tags & Accents / MFT Rolled Rose.

I used a little Birthday sentiment from my stash on the computer:
Quick visit today.  Back Friday with the next Stamping Bella Challenge.

JUNE STAMP OF THE MONTH for Stamping Bella

Today, as promised, I'm back with a Stamping Bella Bellarific Friday Challenge and the theme is to use your favorite embellishment on your card.  Pearls and paper roses are my fav so this challenge wasn't difficult.  :)

I used June's Stamp-of-the-Month: I'll ALWAYS have your back from the Stuffies series and I love it in the cool grays.

COPICS: C00, C1, C2, C3, W1 / BG10, BG11, BG 13 / RV11
DIES: Memory Box - Blooming Flower Frame / Sizzix Thinlets - Friend / MFT - Mini Rolled Rose
PAPER:  SU Whisper White, Always Artichoke and the background paper is actually a digital wood-grain I've had for ages.

So with all the pearls and my little rose, I hope I've met the challenge.  Love these cute little elephants, so quick to colour up too.

Well that's it for me for today.  I'll be back again sooner then you think... and of course again next Friday with another Bella Friday Challenge.

Bye for now,
