Uptown Girls Ophelia and Odelia love ornaments ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!

It's Tamara here with you feeling all festive on first Advent Sunday. Only 4 weeks until Christmas!!! This year's Christmas will be different for sure. No crazy shopping or last hour shopping. One thing that can be delivered directly to our loved ones mail! I made a Christmas card featuring Uptown Girls Ophelia and Odelia love ornaments rubber stamp from the last release. I only used one of the girls. I'm saving the other one for another card. 


I chose traditional colours again: red-green-white with a touch of gold. Sentiment "It's Christmas in the heart that puts Christmas in the air" comes with the images. I love it!

For colouring I used Distress Ink pads. I stamped the image on Fabriano 300g HP watercolour paper with Archival Ink - Jet black.

Colours used for colouring:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
outfit: peeled paint, forest moss
box: pumice stone, black soot
decorations: barn door, fossilized amber, spiced marmalade


That's all from me today! Stay safe!
Hugs, t.

Christmas Cheer

 Hi! 

Today I'm sharing with you my Christmas card made with Christmas Cheer clear stamp set from MFT. Can you imagine I have never coloured a MFT image before?! EVER!? Well, these three were super fun to colour in. I made a similar card a few weeks ago with C. C. Designs Christmas animals.

Christmas animals ☆ C.C. Designs

Hi!
Today I have a new Christmas card for you. I used super adorable Christmas animals from C. C. Designs. These are brand new from November's release. Some of you might remember I made a card like this a year or two back with similar set of animals. These are so easy to make and I really like them.

On the front I used one of the new dies called Deco square. Sentiments used are from different new sets: Elf swissie, Santa Claus Swissie, Coffe and Cookie. Gingerbread house is from Gingerbread lane clear stamp set.

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!
Hugs, t.

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.
