Gingerbread HOUSE ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

 Hi!
Tamara here with you sharing my latest Christmas card. We have a lockdown again due to Corona madness and even though Christmas is near I can't really get myself into Christmas spirit. I had big plans this year to really use all my unused Christmas stamps, but obviously with my collage, working from home and teaching at home that won't happen. LOL Next year then!

One of the stamps that I really wanted to use this year is Gingerbread House. I used this stamps quite a few times before and I absolutely love it. It has such fine lines!!! Love it.

I chose traditional colours for this image: red, green, white. I even found some gingham red ribbon, it's impossible to get here especially now that everything is closed. I added lots of pretty flowers and some white enamel chunks to that it looks like it's snowing.

Image was coloured up using Distress ink pads (as always). Colours used are:
gingerbread: vintage photo
leaves: peeled paint
windows, roof, chimney: ground espresso
light: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade

Sentiment used "Believe in the MAGIC od Christmas" comes with one of the newly released sets called Penguin's Big Catch.


Have a lovely Sunday! Stay safe!

Uptown Girl Katrina's Christmas Kisses ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!
Tamara here with you. I've been super busy for the last few weeks and the craziness is still not over BUT I got super excited when I got my Stamping Bella box of new stamps and some new papers. To be honest I haven't even sorted them or the stuff I ordered (and it all arrived this week when I don't even have time to sleep). It's all piled up on my desk, waiting for better days. LOL

I did take some time off though to colour this gorgeous image!!! She's been one of my faves ever since I saw her on one of the preview days. So so gorgeous and it stamps perfectly. I'm so sensitive about the lines on my stamps, I really like them super thin, so it makes the whole image look very delicate.

The name of this pretty lady is Uptown Girl Katrina's Christmas Kisses.

 


I stamped the image using Archival Ink - Jet Black on 300g HP watercolour paper and then coloured her up with Archival Ink. 

I used RED! You know I don't like using red and colouring red. lolol

Here are distress ink colour used on this card:

skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
dress, hat: barn door, fired brick, black soot
greens: peleed paint, forest moss
belt: black soot


That's all from me today. I hope you had a lovely Halloween yesterday. Stay safe!
Hugs, t.

Birthday Queen ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!
Tamara here with you sharing a Birthday card that I made for my daughter. She turned 8 yesterday and I wanted to make something special for her so I used one of the super fun images from Oddball collection called Birthday Queen. That's exactly what she was today - Birthday Queen! 8 is a very important age, so there can't be a cute baby image on her card. Image has to be fun, different, stylish (just look at her boots) and appopriate for the little lady. lol

I wanted to make my card very colourful (not my usual style), so I used different pinkinsh design papers for the layout and for the balloons and number.

Image was stamped using Archival Ink - Jet Black on 300g HP watercolour paper and then coloured up using Distress ink pads.

Distress Ink pads colours used:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: barn door, fired brick
dress: picked raspberry, black soot
crown: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade
shoes: black soot
cake: picked raspberry, gathered twigs


I added some white dots to the hair and some glitter glue to the crown. The most important thing is - she loved the card!
