Stamping Bella Bellarific Friday

Hi everyone!! Popping in real quick today. The craft room has been packed up and emptied out so no more makes from me until I have my room finished. It's been a long time in the planning stages (read major procrastinating on my behalf!) and now I am just itching to get things underway. 

Anywhooo.. our Bellarific Friday this week was to use Washi tape or Ribbon on our makes. I have featured Senior-ita Dolores on my card. I kept it fairly CAS so as to keep the image as the focal point, and for embellishment I added some washi tape, a little baker's twine and some cream pearl pen. 


Check out what the rest of the Bella babes have created, over on Blogabella.  And don't forget - drop in Stamping Bella Facebook page for all the latest news, and the SB Sisterhood group to share your wonderful makes with us!!


Next week's challenge - A SKETCH! Remeber, you must use a current Stamping Bella image on your entries. Email them to Emily by Thursday to be featured on the blog. 

Have a great day!

I (heart) You

Hi! I'm back again with a quick card I  made, featuring Uptown Girl CATHERINE nibbling chocolate from Stamping Bella

With the horrendous weather out there I think a good movie and some chocolates, in front of a blazing fire, sounds just about right!!


I stamped her out onto Make it Colour blending card and coloured her up with copic markers. The papers are Love You Madly from Glitz.

Courage - Journal Entry

Good afternoon!! I've been having  lots of crafty fun with mixed media lately and today I have a journal page to share.


Supplies: 
Gesso, 7 Dots Studio "Drive All Night" from the Dreamer collection, Chipboard shapes and frames, Gelatos, Glimmer Mist & Dylusions spray, Distress Inks; Pine Needles, Evergreen Bough, Mustard Seed & Vintage Photo, Clear embossing powder, chipboard butterflies, metal key charm, tag, chunky white enamel, alphabet stickers, Tim Holtz stamp, stencil, modeling paste, mod pogde, twine & Sharpie white paint pen.

For the background I added a thick layer of guesso and dried it off with my heat gun. I then spritzed it with various colours and layered on some of the 7 Dots papers with matt mod podge. Finally I used a script stencil and modelling paste to add the text.


To alter the frame and clock I used both Mustard Seed and Vintage photo distress inks and then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. 


I did the same with the butterflies, with Pine Needles & Evergreen Bough distress inks and clear embossing powder. Then I added an outline with the Sharpie paint pen. 


I distressed the edges of the tag with Vintage Photo distress ink, stamped my sentiment with Archival black ink and melted some white chunk enamel onto it. Then I tied some packaging twine through the tag. 


The page is quite dimensional and has loads of different textures, which something I am working on for my pages and canvases.  The theme for the page was inspired by this month's emotion challenge over on the Mixed Media Place blog, which is Courage.
