Thursday already and lots to do this morning too!

Georgie is nearly one! oh my how he has grown, and he is still growing! He is going to be one big pussy cat that is for sure. He is a lot bigger than my princess Fluffy but she is the boss ;)

Today a male card just for a change! I have used a very old Boys on Bikes stamp from Chocolate Baroque!


Step by Step

1. 5 x 5 Kraft square base card.
2. Matted and layered patterned paper layers from my stash.
3. Stamped the image onto card using Versafine vintage sepia and embossed with clear embossing powder then distressed with DI tea dye.
4. Added the adage ticket and the quote at the bottom reads " go wherever anyone wishes"

Stamping Belle - Virgo

Good Morning Crafty Friends

How are you all this morning?

A nice busy day planned with my new Copic's today, lots of colouring planned as I have quite a few images all ready for me to colour.

Here is a card I made using one of the images I coloured at a Copic class. The image is called Virgo from a new company I hadn't heard of before called "Stamping Bella". Check out Dies to Die for as they have a wonderful selection.


Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 white scalloped edge square base card, scored the centre front of the card and folded back.
2. Matted and layered pearlescent taupe and patterned paper to the inside and front panel of the card.
3. Matted and layered the image which has been coloured with Copics onto the front panel.
4. Added the sentiment and butterfly.
5. To finish off added 4 pink pearls to the 4 corners of the topper.
