Teaser alert - Hoppy Easter x 2

It's day 2 of the teasers and I have TWO cards for you today!  

My first card features those crazy but cute chicks!  This one is called The Good Egg Chick.  


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  As always Emily comes up with the perfect sentiments to go with her images.  Here's the inside of my card with the sentiment included.



My second card introduces another member to the Wobble family.  Meet Hoppy Easter Bunny Wobble.  



I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  The sentiment comes with the image.  

And remember, this release will have corresponding Cut It Out dies for all the images.

Be sure to check out the blog for more teasers today and tomorrow.  I'll be back on Tuesday with another card for you.  And then....the release on Thursday!

Bellariffic Friday - Glitter or Bling

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was Glitter or Bling and you know I love both so I went a bit crazy!



I stamped Flowersbehindmybackabella V2.0 with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics. I added lots of glitter to her dress with my spectrum noir pen and then used the coordinating die to cut her out.  The paper is glittery too and I added a scallop border with rhinestones for some extra bling!

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 3 and what a lot of choice in this picture to use as your inspiration!

Lily of the Valley

I couldn't resist using this sweet Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lily of the Valley image again.  


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I then used the co-ordinating die to cut it out perfectly.  The background was made with the Quatrefoil die and I spritzed the pink cardstock with Shimmer mist for a lovely sparkle.  


The sentiment is from Garden Girls Flower Sentiments and I stamped it on a piece of vellum that I wrapped around the card.  A trio of pearls finished it off.

Bellariffic Friday - Mojobella Sketch 27

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week we had Mojobella Sketch 27 to work with.



I still hadn't inked up Donttalktomebeforemycoffeeabella  V2.0 Bella, how did that happen :), and this was the perfect sketch.  



I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I used the coordinating die to cut it out.  I stamped part of the sentiment that comes with the image onto a strip of vellum and tucked it under part of the stool.  I drew a big "S" on the cup for my love of my daily Starbucks!  The paper is Lilybeedesign "Double Dutch".  

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 Glitter or Bling.  You know I'll have fun with that - I love my glitter!

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.

Gray skies are gonna clear up....

I made this for a friend who's having a bit of a rough time.  It's the perfect image and sentiment too!



I stamped the image I'll Always Have Your Back with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  The paper is MME Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky.  I sponged some "stormy" looking clouds in the background as a reminder that even though there are storm clouds now, the sun always comes out and I've always got her back!  

On the inside I stamped the sentiment that comes with the image.

Happy Birthday to Auntie Winn

It was my Auntie Winn's birthday last week and it was a tough choice as to which image to use from the latest release.  I have so many that need to be inked up!  Auntie Winn has a beautiful garden and loves to garden, so Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lily of the Valley seemed perfect.


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I used the co-ordinating die to cut it out perfectly and I popped her up for some dimension.  The paper is from my scrap pile.  I added a few sequins and the sentiment is from Giftabella 2.0.  I added some sparkle to her dress with my Spectrum Noir pen.


These Tiny Townie Garden Girls are so sweet!

Bellariffic Friday - Inspiration Challenge #2

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week we had our second Inspiration Challenge photo to inspire us.



I chose the drinks as my inspiration and inked up Edna Needs A Martini for my card.



I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  The paper is Lilybeedesign "Buttercup".  I used the matching cut it out die to perfectly cut Edna out.  I added some glitter to her wings and a few little dots around the sentiment that comes with the image.  

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.
