Bellariffic Friday - Inspiration Challenge #6

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week we had this lovely photo as our inspiration.  

I haven't coloured up any of the Ramona line lately and seeing as she's sitting on top of a cake, it seems the perfect image.


I stamped Ramona Loves Cake with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics. I added a few sequins and some Wink of Stella to the dots on the icing.  Ramona images always make me smile :)

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 Shaker card or Spinner card.  I love the look of shaker cards so that's what I'll be doing.

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 to be featured on Blogabella and for a chance to win $25 in Bella Bucks.  Click here for all the details!

Feel Better Soon

Here's a card I made using the sweet Stuffy Stuffie - such a perfect name!


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  There is a sentiment that comes with the image but I used the sentiment from Uptown Girl Sofia the Sickie instead.

I sure hope this cheers up my Auntie!

Congratulations on your engagement

Here's an engagement card I made for a friend of mine to give to a friend of mine - LOL!


I stamped the image, Valerie in Love, with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics. 


I added a lace doiley behind the image and sponged some clouds in the sky.  The balloons have some Wink of Stella on the hearts for some sparkle.  

I wish them a wonderful life together filled with love, laughter and friends!

Bellariffic Friday - Wedding/Anniversary/Love

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was to make a card with the theme Wedding/Anniversary/Love.  I used the stamp of the month again, Ellie Loves Phant, which is on sale 20% off for the month of June.


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  If the layout looks familiar, it's Mojobella Sketch 25 from January 13, 2017.  These sketches are great to keep and 're-use'!


I stamped the sentiment that comes with the image onto a little banner tied with some baker's twine.

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 6.  Take anything that inspires you from this photo.

Bellariffic Friday - Mojobella Sketch 30

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week we had Mojobella Sketch 30 to work with.


I inked up Tiny Townie Garden Girl Carnation with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics. I used the colour map to see where my shading should go.  The colour maps that you can download with your purchase are invaluable to me!


I used the coordinating die to cut her out and popped her up for some dimension.  The sentiment is just part of the one that comes with ThinkingofyouABELLA 2.0 for the little banner on the front and added a red rhinestone.

Bellariffic Friday - Free Form

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was Free Form.  It's also the first Friday of the month so that means another image on sale (20% off) for the whole month.  This month we are featuring Ellie loves Phant from the Stuffies line.  


I copied yet another layout from Inge Groot!  The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured with copics.  The stamp comes with the sentiment "I love you" but am using this as an engagment card for some friends, so didn't use the sentiment. 

Here's a close up of the cuteness!

Bellariffic Friday - Inspiration Challenge #5

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week we had this photo to use as our inspiration.



I used the bicycle as my inspiration and stamped one of the newest release images The Squidgy on a Journey.  I am loving this new Squidgy line!  I inked the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics.    


I attempted another "small" shaker card like Jennifer made here.  I used the coordinating die to cut the image out - love that it gets in all the tight spots.  The cut it outs are so much easier than fussy cutting.  Looks like this little Squidgy is headed on a long journey with all that luggage, and here's a close up of the little shaker "hi".

Bellariffic Friday - Use Kraft paper

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was to Use Kraft paper. 



I stamped one of the images from The Chicks Who "Couldn't Even" with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto kraft paper and coloured it with copics.  It was a learning curve for me as the colours of copics totally change when used on kraft paper - I had to try each colour on a scrap of kraft first.  I attached two of the sentiments with a brad on the front.

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 5, and here's the photo.

Bellariffic Friday - Mojobella Sketch 29

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week we had MojoBella Sketch 29 to work with.



I stamped Gigi the Giraffe Stuffie with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  The sentiment that comes with Gigi is "I'm so sorry" but I wanted to make it a birthday card so used one of the 3 sentiments from Uptown Girl Serena has a Sign.
