Last Stamping Bella BellarifficFriday of 2014

Hi!! I can hardly believe that 2014 is nearly over, another year flown by in the blink of an eye! :o This is my last Bellariffic Friday card for 2014. 

We had this sketch...

and this was my take on it. 


The papers are from the Heirloom collection by Mind's Eye. I cut the hearts from one of the papers and stuck them down flat onto the lined paper adding a flossed button to the centre of one heart. I stamped the sentiment, from Serena has a Sign, onto cream card, added a 3d foam dot to rise the middle of it, and adhered it to the card. The postmark stamps are from the Grungy Set which is,  unfortunately, retired. 

Well that's it from me for now, with only 5 days to Christmas and still so much to do, panic is starting to set in. I need to start making list and check them twice actually cross things off!

WOW! Embossing - Memories Layout

Hi! Today I am sharing my take on this month's WOW! Embossing powder challenge theme, which is 
Memories

I created a scrapbook layout using various stamps, powders and other WOW! Embossing products

The papers I'm using are 12th Teacup and Overused Tablecloth, from 7 Dots Studios's Domestic Goddess collection. 


On the background papers I stamped the Canvas with London Fog ink, then Funky Border Strips with Victorian Velvet distress inks. I used the Alpha Set to add the year the layout. 


For the flowers I used Foil Melt-It cases and combined some Melt-It powder with embossing powders. To melt the powders together I heated from underneath the foil case using the WOW! Heat Tool


I used Apple Red Ultra High, Red Glitz Embossing Glitter and Gold Satin Pearl to emboss the wooden embellishments on the layout. 

WOW! Products used:


Powders:
Apple Red Ultra High

Stamps:
Alpha Set

Papers, flowers and embellishments can be found HERE

Waltzingmouse Stamps December Release Previews - Day Two

Hi!! It's Day Two of the Waltzingmouse Stamps December Release previews and today the design team are sharing Vintage Postcards. 

On my first card I made a full sized postcard and stamped Santa and the sentiment from Jolly Old Elf.  I'm sure Santa would love to have this set to send postcards to the boys and girls he receives letters from ;) The papers are 'Twas the Night Before Christmas' from Graphic 45. I've used some cut outs from the papers to embellish and I've also added some berries, baker's twine and red pearl pen. 


My second card features Vintage Postcards, 'Tis the Season and Snowflake Three Die
I created the postcard with kraft card and Distress Inks - Fired Brick & Forest Moss. I stamped the postage stamps onto white card and cut them out with a scissors. I adhered one flat to the kraft card and the other is mounted on 3D foam dots. I also adhered the snowflake with a 3D dot and threaded the baker's twine through, tying a bow in the centre. 


You can see the rest of the design team makes over on the WMS Inspiration blog

All products will be available to purchase from the Waltzingmouse Stamps Store on December 2nd, from approx 7.15pm GMT.

Be sure to drop back tomorrow for Day Three of our December 2014 Release. For more Design Team inspiration check out our Facebook Page, where you can also share your own Waltzingmouse Stamps projects. You can also find all of our new release projects on Pinterest.
