Bellariffic Friday - Thank You/Thinking of You

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was to make a Thank You or Thinking of You card.  It was perfect timing for me as I needed a Thank You card for Danabella!  I've just come back from a lovely visit with her where I spent many hours lounging in the pool....just like my card featuring Tiny Townie Frances Loves to Float!


I stamped the image, along with her sunglasses, flip flops and the sun with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured them all with copics.  I used the coordinating dies to cut them all out and then popped them up on the new Beach Backdrop scene.  I watched Elaineabella's video (click here to view it) on how to colour the beach backdrop and I'm pretty happy how it turned out.  I added some glossy accents to her sunglasses and on the inside I stamped one of the sentiments from the Summer Sentiment Set and another pair of flip flops beside it.


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.  Here's the photo to inspire you.


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!

Happy Birthday Susan

I forgot to post another birthday card from all the July birthdays!


I stamped the image Flowersbehindmybackabella V2.0 with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics.  I used the coordinating die to cut her out.  Sorry that the photo isn't that great - not sure what happened.

I'll always have your back

I had a little stamping time yesterday and inked up one of the Stuffies, "I'll Always Have Your Back"....such a sweet little image.



I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  The paper is MME Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky.  The sentiment that comes with the image is "I'll always have your back" and I stamped that on the inside but forgot to take a photo....and I've mailed the card already - oops.

Bellariffic Friday - Inspiration Challenge #7

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


It was the perfect summer photo and I used the colours and the beach for my inspiration.  I stamped Edna Loves the Ocean with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I used the coordinating die to cut her out and then carefully cut off her wings!  I promise, it didn't hurt her - LOL. 


The background was done with the new Beach Backdrop stamp and I followed Elaineabella's fab tutorial here for a different look.  I popped Edna up and added a good coat of glossy accents to her sunglasses and boy do they shine!  


I finished it off with a sentiment from the new Summer Sentiment set on a little banner with some enamel dots.  

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 Free Form, so anything you like!

Happy Birthday Tracey

I'm back with another birthday card!  This one uses our Stamp of the Month, Petunia has a Party, available at 20% off for July.


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I sponged some clouds in the sky and kept the rest of the card embelleshment-free, as I was mailing this one!  Rest assured, there is glitter on the hats - LOL - and I added some white dots too.  On the inside I stamped the sentiment that comes with Petunia.


Check back on Friday for my Bellariffic Friday card.

Happy Birthday Krista

July has been a busy, busy month for birthdays.  This is the card I made for Krista who celebrated her birthday on Saturday but won't see her card until today :)


I stamped the image, Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lilac, with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics.  I used the coordinating die to cut her out.  The sentiment is from Tiny Townie Blossom Loves Balloons and I embossed it with white embossing powder.  This is one of Ingebella's layouts.  I adore her layouts and refer to them/CASE them often!  She's one of our new Bella Babes and she is awesome!  Check out her blog here. 

I'll have another birthday card I made for another friend to show you on Wednesday, so check back then.

Bellariffic Friday - Christmas in July

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was "Christmas in July".  I used Tiny Townie Skylar Loves To Skate which comes with the little pond for her to skate on too!


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics. I used the coordinating die to cut her and the pond out.  On the pond I added a generous layer of glossy accents.  The background is embossed with a snowflake embossing folder and I added some rhinestones to the middle of some of the snowflakes.  I added a larger clear snowflake at the top with another glittery large rhinestone.

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 7.  Here's the photo - use anything from it as your inspiration.

Bellariffic Friday - Mojobella Sketch 31 - Happy Birthday Christal!

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week we have Mojobella Sketch 31 to work with.


Today is extra special as it's my friend Christal's birthday today so I used the sketch for her birthday card.  Christal mentioned that she loved this image and I know she loves purple...so here's her card.


I stamped the image, Tiny Townie Garden Girl Carnation with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I added a mist of shimmer spray to the green cardbase and you can just see a bit of it.  Of course, her little dress had lots of sparkle too from my Wink of Stella pen.

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 Christmas in July!  Use any Christmas or holiday image and you'll be one more card ahead for December - LOL!
