Bella’s Birthday :-)

Hi all :-) I am back with another card using one of the gorgeous new stamps from the Wild Rose Studio :-) This one is called Bella’s Birthday, isn’t she CUTE !! :-)

I followed the fab layout on the Sketch Saturday Challenge, thanks Jo :-)

I stamped the image twice onto neenah card using memento ink, coloured with copics, paper pieced the present and layered the balloon and bow, popping these up on pop dots. I used Bella’s Papers and purple SU card for layering, for one of the panels I used plain white card embossed with a Swiss Dots folder and some yellow mesh that I have had in a drawer for ages. I added faux stitching, a heart swirl and some flowers that were a gift from Debby, some yellow ribbon and a few Card Candi dots. the sentiment is from a WRS Greetings Set and I added the compulsory star dust stickles for sparkle :-)

I would like to welcome my new teamies, Kate aka Downright Crafty and Vicky aka Vixx Handmade Cards to the Wild Rose Studio Design Team :-) Congratulations girls Smile xx

Hi all :-) did you have a nice weekend ?? I hope so :-) I had a nice time experimenting with my Silhouette Cameo machine, I didn’t make very much but I was learning how to use it and I just LOVE it ,,, my new bestest friend ,,, :-)

Tea and Sympathy ,,,for our Anything Goes Challenge :-)

To join us on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image :-)

I used this very cute ‘Color Me Better’ image, coloured with copics and I inked the edges with Vintage Photo DI. I used paper from Karen Foster and 7 Gypsies, a Martha Stewart border punch, some Hero Arts ribbon and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops. The sentiment is from LOTV and I finished with Star Dust Stickles :-)

My sister fell off her bike and broke a bone in her foot so she is now off work and having to put her feet up so I made this card for her ,,,

Next up is a Tea Bag Dispenser that I made using the Silhouette Cameo machine.

I downloaded the design , cut it out, stuck it together, I used a Tim Holtz Typeset Alphabet die to cut ‘TEA’ and stuck those on the front using glossy accents, I added a TH Hitch Fastener to the top to make the lid handle,, simples ,,, :-)
