Make a Bunny ☆ C.C. Designs

Hi!
Tamara here with you. I made a Baby, Birthday card using Make a Bunny die. This is such an awesome die to use. It can be used for Baby cards, for Birthdays, if you add a few eggs it can be perfect for Easter ....


"Congratulations" sentiment comes from the Oh My Baby clear stamp set. I made the grass using Cloud and Grass die. Scalloped square and clouds were made with old CCD dies.


That's all from me today. Have fun!

Once Upon a Time ♡ Swedish House Crafts DT



Hi!
Tamara here with you. I made a Pirate card  for boys using Once upon a time Pop up box by Magnolia. This is from the latest Pop up box. It comes with two characters (Pirate Edwin, Pirate Tilda), two sentiments and quite a few different background stamps (treasure chest, skulls, compas ...).
I used both sculls and compas background stamps on my card.

Image was stamped with Archival Ink on Langton 300g HP watercolour paper and then coloured in using Distress ink pads.


Dies used on this card are from Magnolia, different past Doohickey kits. There are still some available HERE.


That's all from me today.

ILOVEMYPETSabella V. 2.0 ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!
Tamara here with you. Today I have a vintage themed card for you. I used one of the older images from my Stamping Bella stamp collection. This beautiful image is called I love my pets-abella. Yup, that's me too, love my cats!!
I rarely use these vintage Pion papers because they are not very white, they all look a bit old and I really like using bright white on my cards. I had these in my drawer and since I really like them I decided to give them a spotlight. lol


I stamped the image using Archival ink on 300g HP watercolour paper and then coloured it using Distress ink pads. 

Distress ink colours used:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
dress: victorian velvet, stormy sky, black soot
cat: black soot
dog: pumice stone, black soot


I cut out the image using stitched oval die and then mat it with the (old) decorated oval. I cut out some small flowers and added them to the card.

Sentiment "Happy Birthday from all of us" comes with the image.

Have a lovely Sunday!
Hugs, t.

Leo the BALANCING STUFFIE ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!
Tamara here with you with my latest Stamping Bella card. For this week's post I coloured Leo the BALANCING STUFFIE. I fell in love with this image when a few months ago my teamies made a bunch of different cards with it as it was a stamp of the month. I added it to my cart and ordered it. hehe ...
I like this image because I think it can be used for so many different ocassions. If you add a Happy Birthday under the balance sentiment it might look totally awesome (note to myself for the next time I'm using it).



As always ... image was coloured using Distress ink pads on watercolour paper. I used vintage photo and spiced marmalade for the lion, black soot for the bike and peeled paint for the grass. I added some cloudy background using Distress oxides.


To decorate the card I used a few different design paper from some old paper pads and a few enamel dots. I cut out small clouds and added it to the image.


That's all from me this week.
Hugs, t.
