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:

I love the partner stamp to Penny Black “Snowy” “Santa’s Hat” He is so cute and makes you feel so cozy.

Coloured with my faithful Promarkers, hat fur filled with Tonic Nuvo Glitter and fussy cut (as I don’t yet have the die) he was layered on to a frame.

I would like to enter the PaperPlayers Challenge PP371 Clean and Simple Warm and Cozy, along with the Passion for Promarkers Challenge 422 It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Speedy Card

Speedy Card

How often do you normally spend when making a single card? I must confess I can take over 2 days, with the background and accents being the issue – should I add this, how does it look, do the colours go, all being part of my dilemma.

However, this one was made like Speedy Gonzales. I was on the PaperPlayers blog and the challenge this week is a tic tac toe square giving many options, When I saw what we could use I immediately decided I wanted to use my new Sue Wilson set of dies, my MFT Peek-a-boo stitched rectangle and shiny card stock I keep meaning to use, but never get around to using it. The sentiment was stamped using a Hero Arts stamp which I have have for to many years to mention, but use every year when making Christmas cards.

I would like to enter the card in the PaperPlayers #368 – with Tree, Die-cut and Shine.
