Unicorn ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Tamara here with you.For this week's post I made a girly gift bag. This project first started as a card. I coloured the image, cut all the papers and then just before gluing it down, I changed my mind and made a gift bag. This bag is just big enough to add some candies or a small gift inside.

Image used on this project is called Tiny Townie Unicorn and she's GORGEOUS!!! Love, love, love Tiny Townie stamps. They are so awesome!!

Sentiment used comes with the image. I cut it apart and only used the first line "Everyone needs a little", the sentiment then goes on "magic, even if they're all grown up". I replaced the stamped word magic with die cut and left out the rest of the sentiment.

To decorate the card I added a few chipboard stars and lots of glitter to her flowers and outfit. Image was stamped using Archival Ink - Jet black and then coloured up with Distress Ink pads.

Hugs, t.

The shaker part was made using an old Super hero die set from C. C. Designs. I added some green sequins to the shaker and a stary night paper.

Curvy Girl Holding Hands ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella


Tamara here with you. I'm so so in love with the new (family) Curvy Girls. I have them all! For today's post I made a Mother's Day card using Curvy Girl holding hands. I stamped my rubber stamp using Archival Ink - Jet black on 300g HP Fabriano watercolour paper and then coloured it up using Distress Ink pads.
I really like the flowers they are both holding. They might be peonies, which are one of my favourite flowers.

Distress Ink pads colours used on this card:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
shirt, dress: speckled egg, hickory smoke, black soot
trousers, flowers: victorian velvet, black soot
leaves: rustic wilderness

I wanted to do something different on my card, so I stamped the sentiment on a paper, then cut away the first line. I cut it apart and changed the word mother with die cut letters. I cut each letter twice so I got a bit of a 3d effect. I didn't want to over decorate the card, because the image is so so pretty, so I only added a small tag and a bow with a brad.

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