Stamping Bella Posh Girl has a Present – 60th Birthday Bash

Stamping Bella Posh Girl has a Present – 60th Birthday Bash

What do you do when you are stuck at home, it is snowing and windy outside and you have a friends birthday coming up? Make a card – well it would be stupid not to take the opportunity to have an extra day to play!

As it was a 60th birthday coming up, I decided to use a stamp I have recently bought – Stamping Bella Posh Girl has a Present. She is just adorable and looks as if she is going to be so much fun. Lots of presents for everyone.

The image was stamped and coloured using the Hero Arts small ink pads – Raspberry Jam, Ultra Pink and Bubble Gum which all work very well together. I then fussy cut her out, added little black spots to her bag using Black Tonic Nuvo Drops. She was layered on to a lattice cut using Sue Wilson Stitched Latticed Frame Die, cut in to an oval using the Tonic Oval dies and which then had a oval layer placed on top which had been coloured using the Ultra Pink ink. Everything was then layered on to black glitter card, with the birthday sentiment printed and layered last.

This will be entered into:

Thanks with Stampin’ Up

I just love water colouring with Stampin’ Up inks. For this card, stamped Whisper White card with Tonic white embossing powder and coloured the flowers by wetting the card and using Tangelo Twist, Bermuda Bay and Concord Crush liquid ink to create the coloured effect. The image was then cut out and layered on to Tangelo Twist card, then layered on to White Whisper White card which too was dry embossed, and layered on to a Tangelo Twist before being stuck down on to the card. The sentiment Thanks was stamped with Tangelo Twist and layered across to finish the card.

This card is to be entered in:

Today I decided to use a retired stamp set which I had recently bought – Stampin’ Up Baby Blossoms. I am not sure about you, but I think that it has so much potential, with all those small delicate flowers.

Carefully trying to layer the flowers, I was not sure how easy it was, but after a few practice attempts I got there. Using Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Denim Dapper it was to be entered in the Global Design Project Colour Challenge #125

New Year, new stamp

This is a stamp which I can see fast becoming one of my favourite stamps and like “The Folder”  being called “The Stamp Set”. It is Dahlia Turnabout stamp made by Concord & 9th. This one was made using the Tonic Classic Gold embossing powder, framed with the MFT stitched die and layered onto a gold card. 2018 was cut using old Quickutz dies and the gemstones made using clear Tonic Drops and covered with gold glitter.

I really do love Christmas time when we get the chance to make lots of cards knowing that they are to be used instead of being put in a box to be ready ……..

This one is made using a retired Stamping Up stamp – Prancer. He is just perfect for Christmas. He was embossed using Nuvo Embossing powder Classic Gold which produces a rich gold colour. It was framed using and MFT stitched die and placed on stock card. The edging at the back of the card is a Sue Wilson die cut in half and stuck behind the card before being layered on to the card.

I will be entering the card into the Global Design Project Challenge 116 – CASE
