Bellariffic Friday - Use Holiday Colours

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was to use holiday colours.  It's also the first Friday of the month so all the BellaBabes will be using the stamp of the month that's on sale at 20% off.  This month the stamp is Uptown Girl Chrystal's Christmas Label which as you can see is not only for decorating the envelope but gorgeous as a card!



I stamped Chrystal with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics....using holiday colours!  I kept it very simple just using red cardstock as a mat.  I added some little dots made with my new Nuvo Crystal Drops - I love these - wish I'd bought more colours!  And of course there is glitter on her hat and dress. 



You can add any sentiment and I used the sentiment from Rudolph with a present on top.  I also stamped up a matching envelope.


Be sure to check out the rest of the BellaBabes and the Sistah's cards for this week on Blogabella.  Next week's Bellariffic Friday challenge is Mojobella Sketch 24 which you can find on the blog.

We hope you'll get stamping with us. It's easy to play along - just ink up any current (check the website) Stamping Bella image, and email your card to Emily by next Thursday for a chance to win some Bella Bucks.

Bellariffic Friday - Mojobella Sketch 23

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week we had Mojobella Sketch 23 to work with.  I made another Christmas card with one of my fav snowman images.


I stamped Snowman with chick on top with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I added dots of glitter as falling snow.  The paper is Doodlebug "Santa's Workshop" and "Winter Wonderland".  I used a circle die and a fishtail flag die along with some enamel dots and of course, my Wink of Stella for glitter on his hat and the little chick's hat.



I used the sentiment that comes with the image on the inside.

I Toad-ally Miss You

Just popping in with a quick card and a very simple layout seen online.  These Pure Innocence girls colour up so quickly and are just so stinking cute!


stamped the image PI Feeling Froggy with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics. The fishtail flag paper is MME Lime Twist "Life of the Party" and I added some enamel dots to finish it off.

Bellariffic Friday - Inspiration Challenge 8

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week we had a lovely picture to kick start us into the holiday season.



I took the Christmas tree and the colours as my inspiration and made another Christmas card to add to my stash.  



I stamped the sweet Season's Greetings image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  The paper is Doodlebug "Winter Wonderland".  I embossed the pink cardstock with the Softly Falling embossing folder.  On her jacket I added two tiny twinkle rhinestones for her buttons and of course there's glitter too!  

The sentiment that comes with this image is Season's Greetings but I added the sentiment "Merry holidays" from the Skating Chicks image.  I love that you can mix and match sentiments and images with Stamping Bella images.

Be sure to check out the rest of the BellaBabes and the Sistah's cards for this week on Blogabella.  Next week's Bellariffic Friday challenge is Mojobella Sketch 23 which you can find on the blog.

Ramona shakes things up

I was inspired by this card Kristina Werner made and tried a shaker card.  I love the look of them but think I still need some practise in the "construction" of them - LOL!  


I stamped sweet little Ramona Loves to Glide with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics.  I fussy cut her out and attached her to the side of the circle shaker that I had filled with sequins and little snowflakes.  I added lots of glitter to her hood and a few little Tiny Twinkle rhinestones for her buttons.  The paper was made using a Diagonal Stripe background stamped with turquoise ink.


I added some red baker's twine tied three times around the card.  Here's the card laying flat so you can see all the shaking bits.

Bellariffic Friday - Sketch 22

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week we are up to Mojobella Sketch 22.  I made a Christmas card as it is fast approaching!


I stamped the image, ChristmasGIFTabella 2.0. with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics following Elaineabella's fab colour map.  I used the coordinating die to cut her out - love those matching dies!  Then I popped her up onto a fishtail flag.  The paper is BoBunny Mistletoe.  She has lots of glitter and the embossing folder is Divine Swirl.  The sentiment comes with the image and it is perfect.  


Be sure to check out the rest of the BellaBabes and the Sistah's cards for this week on Blogabella.  Next week's Bellariffic Friday challenge is Inspiration challenge 8 - it's a great photo so take what you like from it for your card - the colours, the season, the tree, whatever you like.



We hope you'll get stamping with us. It's easy to play along - just ink up any current (check the website) Stamping Bella image, and email your card to Emily by next Thursday for a chance to win some Bella Bucks.

Bellariffic Friday - Make a Tag

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was to make a tag.  I made a tag....and then added it to a card - that counts, right? :)


It's also the first Friday of the month so that means that this little cutie, Sleepy Bunny Wobble, is on sale at 20% off for the whole month!  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics. I followed Elaineabella's colour map exactly for the colours and used the coordinating die to cut him out.


I love that this image could be used for so many different occasions - baby, miss you, thinking of you, sending you a hug, etc.  Another thing I love about Stampingbella images is you can mix up/share the sentiments.  Here I used the first line of the sentiment from Tiny Townie Amanda is Awesome "I miss you" on the front of the card and on the inside I stamped the sentiment that comes with Sleepy Bunny Wobble.


Be sure to check out the rest of the BellaBabes and the Sistah's cards for this week on Blogabella.  Next week's Bellariffic Friday challenge is Mojobella Sketch 22.  You can find the sketch on Blogabella.

Happy Mail

I made a couple of cards just for fun last month but forgot to blog them.  I used PI "Happy Mail" - I know how happy I am when I receive happy mail, for no particular reason!



I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  The paper is MME Unforgettable.  Her shoes are super shiney courtesy of some glossy accents and I added sparkle with my Wink of Stella pen.  I stamped the sentiment on a banner and added a trio of sparkly dots.

I hope this card brings a smile to my friends when they receive it.

Happy Halloween

Today's card uses one of those sweet PI girls that I adore - Pumpkin Patch Girl.


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I added some of Bella's Grounds and Grasses around her.  The paper is Lilybeedesign Autumn Spice and I paper pieced her little sweater.  I added some twine with a small button at the top.  The clouds were sponged on.  I hope everyone has a fun Halloween.

Bellariffic Friday...on a Sunday - Sketch 21

I'm a couple of days late with Bellariffic Friday.  This week we had Mojobella Sketch 21 to work with.



It was a wet, rainy day here today so I inked up Tiny Townie Rachel Loves The Rain which seemed appropriate except I coloured her with bright sunny colours. 


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics.  I used the matching Cut It Out die.  The paper is old SU pattern paper.  I added glossy accents to the puddle and Wink of Stella to her umbrella.  A few enamel dots finished it off.


Be sure to check out the rest of the BellaBabes and the Sistah's cards for this week on Blogabella.  Next week's Bellariffic Friday challenge is Make a Tag.
