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.

Waltzingmouse Stamps December release previews Day One.

Hello and welcome to day one of the Waltzingmouse Stamps December 2014 New Release previews.

Over the next 3 days the design team will be previewing the new products for December. All of these products will be available to purchase in the store on December 2nd, when we will also be having our blog hop.


This month we have two 8"x 6" sized set to release - Old Country Roses and Vintage Postcards. 

Today, the design team are showcasing Old Country Roses, and I have made a card with matching tag. 


The card is 5.75" square and the papers I've used are My Mind's Eye Heirloom 6x6 pad. I matted with dark red and white cardstock. 

I stamped the flowers and leaves out with distress inks and fussy cut them. I adhered the leaves with wet glue and then layered the flowers over them using 3D foam. 

The tag is 2.75 x 4.5" and I simply used the same inks as for the card and stamped the smaller flowers around the patterened paper, adding the sentiment with Brilliance Graphite Black ink. 

To embellish both the tag and the card I used some May arts cream silk ribbon, 5mm self-adhesive pearls and a viva decor pearl pen.

Crafting Ireland Guest Feature - Waltzingmouse Stamps

Halloween Card and Treat Bag

Hi! Today I am sharing a Halloween Card and Treat Bag set I made for Crafting Ireland featuring  Waltzingmouse Stamps Boo and Friends & Peek a Boo Sentiments


The card measures 4.25" x 5.5" and the papers I've used are 'Enchanted' by Authentique. I've matted them with black and orange cardstock. I cut the spiderweb circle with nestabilities and mounted my ghost on 3D foam. I added some Spiderweb corners and some Eerie bats to embellish. 
Copics markers used - C3, D5,C7, C9


The treat bag is simply a cellophane bag cut down to size. I used the same patterned papers as on the card. I cut a strip of stripey paper about 2" deep, folded it in half, slipped it over the top of the bag and stapled it closed. Then I used nestabilities scalloped circles and classic circles for the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment, from Peek-a-Boo Sentiments with 3D foam and added a bat to tie it in with the card.

WOW! Embossing - One Stamp, Two Ways

Hi! It's my turn to share some WOW! Embossing DT inspiration with you.
Our theme this month is One Stamp - Different Looks

I made 2 cards using one of the butterfly stamps from the With Love clear stamp set.

On the first card I used Clear Gloss powder on white card and sponged the background with Victorian Velvet distress ink. 
Tip: Rub over the butterflies with a damp cloth to remove any ink residue. 
I matted it onto white card and used 3D foam to adhere it to the card base. 
I stamped the sentiment with Archival black ink and distressed the edges with the Victorian Velvet. 
Finally, I added some liquid pearls randomly to the card front.


For my second card I used the butterfly as a focal image. 
I stamped it out onto smooth card and coloured it, to match my papers, using copic markers. 
Purples - V000, V02, V04
Green - YG21, YG23, YG25
I cut  the image out with Lacy Circles nestabilities, adhered it to the card with 3D foam and added some liquid pearl around the circle and under the sentiment. 


WOW! products used:
Stamp - With Love
Powders - Clear Gloss

Stamping Bella Bellariffic Friday - Sketch!

Hi!! Have you seen the new Stamping Bella store???? It's fabarooni, go have a look!!! 

This week the Bella Babes had another great sketch to follow along to


and this is my take on it. 

My card features Uptown Girl Faith the Fairy. She's been coloured up with copic markers and a little stickles added to her bling. 

The papers are from a 6x6 pack that I found in my stash. I'm not sure of the brand as the front was gone off of it. To embellish I added some Cherry Blossom Branches, Cherry Blossom Flowers, Prima flowers, ribbon and a metal charm. 

Check out the rest of the Bella Babes makes over on the blog. Don't forget to drop in Stamping Bella Facebook page for all the latest news, and the SB Sisterhood group to share your wonderful makes with us!!
