Curvy Girl Baker ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!

Tamara here with you with a Cooking/Cake/Love themed card featuring Curvy Girl Baker. I coloured this pretty girl in no-lines technique. Colouring images in no-lines technique is a bit more work but I really love the end result and it makes images look really soft and delicate.

Papers used are very new in my collection and there's quite a few that match cooking theme prefectly. I really like the one with old handwriting that looks like a quickly written recipe. My mom has a lon of small papers, napkins ... scribbled with recipes. hehe ...

 

I stamped my image using Archival Ink - Potting soli twice on a white paper first and then on the watercolour paper without inking the stamp in between. This way I got a very pale image and perfect for no-lines colouring. The colouring medium used are Distress ink pads.

Distress ink pads colours used:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
dress, branch, shoes: peelep paint, black soot
apron, hat, flower: victorian velvet, black soot

Sentiment "The secret ingredient is always love" comes with the image.



That's all from me today!

Squidgy and Teddy ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!
Tamara here with you. Fot this week's post I made a baby card using Squidgy and Teddy. I can honestly say this is my most used Stamping Bella image. I've used it for Baby cards, Friendship cards, Birthdays and even Anniversaries. Teddy can be coloured in any color and it's so easy to use.

I added a part of the sentiment (Hey) from Hey Baby sentiment which comes in Hydrangea Baby rubber stamp set.

Distress Ink pads colours used:

I added a few die cuts to make this into a baby themed card. I always love to add hearts to my cards. I have so many heart dies it's ridiculous, but I love using them. lol

That's all from me today!

Namaste ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!
Tamara here with you. I admit I never tried joga or any kind of meditation. I just don't have the patience or the energy OR the time for it. LOL I think my kind of joga is colouring and I'll stick to that. 

Image used on my card today is called Curvy Girl Namaste. Do you know what Namaste means? Nama means bow, as means I, and te means you. Therefore, namaste literally means "bow me you" or "I bow to you."

I really like the sentiment I used with this image. It's part of the Good Vibes Sentiment Set. There's quite a few great sentiments in that set.

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

skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
shirt: victorian velvet, black soot

Tutorial Thursday - Slimline card ❤ la-la land crafts

 

 Hi!

Tamara here with you. Have you noticed how crazy popular slimline cards are for the last few months? They are everywhere and they are sooooo much fun to make. You don't need fancy slimline dies to create one and today I'll show you how to make a simple slimline card for a friend.

What you need:
white cardstock
distress oxide ink pads (tumbled glass, broken china)
blending tool
colouring medium
cutter/scissors

la-la land crafts items you need:
Stitched Sun and Clouds Die
Coffee is Life Clear Stamp Set
Summer is Here Layering Stencil
Stitched Clouds Border Die

Step 1:
Cut 3 3/4 x 8" rectangle from white cardstock. I use watercolour paper because it's easier to apply colour later.

  Step 2:
Take your cloud stencil and start makeing cloudy background using Broken China Distress Oxide on the bottom clouds and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide on the middle and top ones. Move your stencil, so that the clouds don't look all the same.

 

Step 3:
Cut a small rectangle 2 x 3 3/4" from white cardstock and cut o+it on the top with Cloud border die. This will be the bottom of our card.
Die cut 3 clouds: one big one and two smaller ones. Stamp your images and colour them with your chosen colouring medium and then fussy cut them.
Stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set and cut it out.

 Step 4:
Glue the white cloudy piece on the bottom of the card.

Step 5:
Add foam tape to the back of the images and sentiment.

Step 6:
Glue your images to the card base. Make sure to glue the sentiment straight.

 

Step 7:
Add some glitter to the ropes or coffe cups and that's it. Your CAS Coffe friends card is done.

 
That's it from my end.
Hugs, t.

Little Bits ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!
Tamara here with you sharing a Fall card. I loveeeee making Fall cards. Years ago when I started making cards, Fall cards were my least favourite, but I think it was the lack of pretty Fall images not the theme itself. Well, I do love them now. The images, the colours, leaves, animals ... all of it.

Fot this week's post I made another slimline card, a tall one. I used images from three different sets:


All images were stamped with Archival Ink - Jet Black on 300g HP watercolour paper and then coloured up using Distress ink pads and fussy cut.


Distress ink pads used:
mushrooms: barn door, fired brick, black soot
hedgie: vintage photo, walnut stain
acorns: walnut stain, forest moss
leaves: walnut stain, vintage photo, ages magahony, spiced marmelade, forest moss, barn door
fox: spiced marmalade, rusty hinge

Barckground was created with Distress Oxides.

 
Sentiment "happy" is just the first part of the sentiment Happy mail that comes with Tiny Townie Lacey has a letter.


Have a lovely Sunday!
