Flowery Gnome ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

 Hi!

Tamara here with you. Why is September always such a crazy month? New School Year starts, lots of outdoor cleaning and a lot of new releases, one of them being Stamping Bella's September release. wohoooo .... Other than that I'm totally obsessed with colouring SB Gnomies. Last year I learned that gnomes and elves are not the same thing, lololol ....

Image used today is called Flowery Gnome. I rarely colour with red, it's not my favourite colour to pick, but I really like how this one turned out.

 

 Image was stamped with Archival Ink - Jet Black on 300g HP watercolour paper. I used Distress Ink pads for colouring.

Distress Ink pads colours used are:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
beard: hickory smoke, black soot
outfit: barn door, black soot


I added some white lines to his outfit and white dots to the flowers.

Sentiment "This isn't a thank you ...." comes with the image.

Hugs, t.

Rosie and Bernie in a Bus ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!
It's Tamara here with you with my Sunday's post. I've finally (really) started with this year's Christmas cards. Stamping Bella has soooo many awesome Christmas stamps that it's not that easy to choose which one to use first. I've had this shaker snow globe idea in my head for some time now. I wanted to make it super easy, no extra dies used or anything. Only die used was nested circles for the glass part, other than that it's all hand cut.

Image used is called Rosie and Bernie in a Bus. This is my first Rosie and Bernie stamp used and I love it. Girl and a Unicorn together?! YES please!!! Little confesion ... I just got a small box of new Rosie and Bernie stamps (blush).

Image was coloured up using Distress Inks pads on 300g HP watercolour paper.

Distress Ink pads used:
skin: vintage photo
unicorn: black soot, seedles preserves, tattered rose
scarvs: barn door
bus: black soot, broken china, fossilized amber, spiced marmalade
tree: peeled paint, forest moss

Sentiment comes from a different stamp set called: The penguin on a reindeer on a polar bear rubber stamp.


I added lots of pretty stuff to the shaker part: clear diamonds, glitter, red candy, snowflakes, sequins ...

That's all from me today.

Curvy Girl MULTITASKER ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!
Tamara here with you. Multitasking could be a term that 100 % describes how my days go by. I'm always doing three things at a time and thinking about the forth. I think we're all just so busy all the time and we only have 24h a day to do it, so we try to make everything at once. A few weeks ago I was listening to a radio show where the guest (some kind of doctor) was talking about multitasking and how it's impossible to do more than one thing at a time. I was like sureeeeee ... well, here's my card with the cutest image called Curvy Girl Multitasker.

When I made this card my daughter said it's me with my cat Roxy, drinking coffee. I wish ...

Image was coloured up using Distress ink pads on 300g HP watercolour paper and then fussy cut.

Distress ink pads used:
skin: vintage photo
