For You ❀ I am roses

Hi!

Tamara here with you. I made a Birthday card with lots and lots of pretty flowers. I chose an image with Tilda holding a flower bouquet and then added The most beautiful I am roses flowers.

Design papers used on this card are from Mintay. Sentiment is from Magnolia, same as the image. Here are a few close ups of the flowers. I covered them with a bit of white crackle paint.

There's still an active challenge over at I am roses challenge blog, the theme is Anything goes. All you need to do is create something, use at least 2 IAR products on it and link it to iar challenge blog. Easy, right!? Did I tell you about the prizes? No? Well, they are AWESOME!!!!. You can get vouchers, not only the winner, but also top 3!!! wohooooo ....

JOURNALING MOCHI GIRL ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!
Tamara here with you. Today I have a CAS card for you. I really like colouring up these Mochi girls, they are big enough so I don't have to strugle with the tinyest details and still they are perfect size for a card. She's called Journaling Mochi Girl.
I saw a similar card design on Instagram and wanted to use the layout for this image. I had a few sentiments prepared for the card but then I chose this one ... YOU CAN! It's a powerful message and since I'm doing an additional year of collage this year and I'm super stressed all the time, I feel like this girl and all I can say to myself is You can!


Image was stamped with Archival Ink - Jet black on 300g HP Fabriano watercolour paper and then coloured up with Distress Ink pads.

Distress Ink pads colours used are:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade, rusty hinge
shirt: dusty concord, black soot
mug: victorian velvet, black soot
notebook: pumice stone, black soot


I added some wthite lines and some glitter to the image.

Marching CHICK ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!
Tamara here with you with a Valentine's Day project. I recently bought a few planner tools and embellishments and to test them out I made a Valentine's Day table planner for my daughter. I used all kinds of different colours on this one, from yellow, pink to teal. Image used is called Marching Chick and it's actually the first Stamping Bella chick that I coloured.

For colouring I used Distress Ink pads. Image was stamped using Archival Ink - Jet black and watercolour paper used is 300g HP Fabriano. 

Distress ink pad colours used:
chick: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade
hearts: barn door, fired brick
daisy: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade, black soot, peeled paint, forest moss

The design of the table planner is rather easy. I made a V shape base and connected it with acetate. then I cut different design papers and made holes with disc punch and connected it all with discs. I used teal discs because my daughter loves teal. I added a small envelope too.

Sentiment comes with the image. I stamed it on a small tag and placed it on the front.


Have a great Sunday! Stay safe!
Hugs, t.

Cupid Love ☆ C.C. Designs

Hi!
Tamara here with you today. I made an Outside the box card. It's a fun card design to use and you don't need any special dies for it if you want to make it. Images used on this one are from Cupid Love clear stamp set. There are 5 super cute cupids in this stamp set with a target and a few sentiments. Definitely a must have for all love cards. I cut out the images using Cupid Love Outline dies.

Images were stamped using Archival Ink on 300g HP watercolour paper and then coloured up with Distress ink pads. I used some Stickes glitter glue on the target and arrows.

That's all from me today!

Closeups "IN LOVE" ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Hi!
Tamara here with you with a Valentine's Day card! YES! It's that time of the year already. I usually make a few Valentine's Day cards a year but I often add sentiments that can be used for other occasions too. Image used today is called Closeups "IN LOVE" and it comes with an awesome sentiment which I added inside the card (but forgot to take a picture, duh ..). 

Image was stamped using Distress Ink pads on 300g HP wtarecolour paper and then coloured up with Distress Ink pads and fussy cut.

Distress Ink colours used are:
skin: vintage photo
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
sweater: mowed lawn, forest moss
daisies: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade, hickory smoke
shirt: broken china, black soot
skirt, heart: barn door, fired brick

 



I made a slimline card because I wanted to add some big letters instead of sentiment on the front and I needed more space on the card. Papers used are from various companies.


I hope you like my card. Enjoy your Sunday!
Hugs, t.
