Reindeer family ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella


Tamara here with you. Year 2019 is coming to an end and this is my last post for this year so I wanted to make a card to wish you all a Happy New Year 2020!! 

To make this card I first created the teal background with my Distress oxide inks. I added some white dots with my brush and lates some glitter. This card is bigger than my usual size cards because I wanted to include all animals, numbers and also a forest background.

Images used on this card are from Reindeer family set. It's such an awesome set to use and colour. It can be used for Christmas cards, Winter cards or for Birthday cards. So cute!

Images were coloured using Distress ink pads on watercolour paper and then fussy cut. You can use Cut it out die which will make it a lot easier. 

Distress ink pad colours used:
deers: vintage photo
greens: peeled paint
red: barn door

Sentiment "From our family to yours" comes with the images. 


That's all from me today. Enjoy your holidays!!
Hugs, t.

Today I'm sharing with you a small Birthday prezzie. It's a box with a sweet surprise inside, hehe ... I used one of the new images called Racoons. I love this sweet and cute image and it's coloured in no time. I used Distress ink pads to colour it up and Racoons outline dies (they are on SALE now) to cut it out.

Happy die cut was made with the new HAPPY die. Love it!! It's also on sale now.

Sentiment comes with the images and was cut out using my fav CCD dies - Banners accessories.

... and the sweet surprise. It's a tiny Nutella.

Tamara here with you with a fun Winter card. We got out first snow on Thursday and my mom and I took a walk while it was snowing and it was magical. Snow on the road looked like the finest glitter and I honestly don't remember seeing it like that EVER!

For today's card I used one of the older Stamping Bella images called The Littles Snowfight. I bought this image two years ago but didn't have the time to colour it up.

I used Distress ink pads for colouring. I chose bright and happy colours for their outfits and I loveeee how it turned out.

Distress ink pads colours used:
skin: vintage photo
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
snow: hickory smoke, black soot
girl's outfit: seedles preserves, mowed lawn
boy's outfit: mowed lawn, broken china
racoon: black soot, broken china

I added the sentiment from Christmas Bug rubber stamp set and a few presents die cuts.

I chose very happy design paper with snowflakes. They match my outfit colours perfectly. hehe ...

That's all from me today!! Merry Christmas!

18 Days of Christmas - Day 10 ❤ la-la land crafts

18 Days of Christmas - Day 10

It's Tamara here with you on Day 10 of 18 Days of Christmas projects. I made a teal colored Christmas card. In the last two years I noticed that people want flat Christmas cards which is a totally crazy thing for me, because I want to fill them up with flowers, lace and lots of glitter. So, today's card is a flat card that can fit in the standard envelope.

I used teal papers from the new Little Merry Christmas paper pad. Image chosen is called Cozy Molli. I colored her up using Distress ink pads on 300g HP watercolor paper. I always use HP (hot pressed) paper for coloring, it's easier to spread color and it's very smooth.

Distress ink pad colors used:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
outfit: broken china, black soot, pumice stone


la-la land crafts items used:
Little Merry Christmas
Cozy Molli Rubber Stamp
Christmas Postcard Stamp Set
Large Half Doily Die
Three Presents Die
Star Wreath Die

We don't have any special Christmas tradition. We decorate the tree a few days before the Christmas Eve and on the Christmas Eve my mom usually makes a dinner for all of us and she uses special Christmas plates with little Christmas trees on them and covered with gold paint. After dinner we usually watch a Christmas movie or play games.

That's it from me. Happy Holidays!!

Tamara here with you. Today I'm sharing a sweet Baby shaker card. I loveeeee these Baby images (Peony Baby in a Pot), they are so so cute and so much fun for colouring in. First I had an idea to make a 1st Birthday card with this one and then changed it to a Baby card. I can always add a number if I need it, right?!
Image was stamped with Archival ink on HP watercolour paper. I'm always using HP (hot pressed) for my colouring. It gives such awesome results and ink can be spread easily.

For colouring I used Distress ink pads. Colours used are:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
pot: rusty hinge
leaves: peeled paint
flower: victorian velvet, black soot

I fussy cut the image BUT you can also get a matching outline die.

I added all kinds of pink and clear sequins, stars and hearts to the shaker part. I die cut  few hearts and glued them around the image to make it super sweet.

That's all from me today. 
Hugs, t.

I used Distress ink pads for colouring.
