Oddball Witch ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Tamara here with you. For this post I made a Halloween shaker card featuring Oddball Witch. I cut out the shape of the card with silhouette cameo and used Halloween design papers from my stash. Shaker part was cut out with stitched circle dies but you can use regular circle dies too. For the inside I used a mix of different sequins, polymer clay eyes, glitter and black and white spiders. I  added two large spider webs under the shaker part.

I couldn't decide if I should use the sentiment or not, so I used it on the inside of the card and added only cutouts from the design paper on the front.

Image was stamped with Archival Ink - Jet Black on 300g HP watercolour paper (hot pressed, extra white). For colouring I used Distress ink pads.

Distress ink pads used:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: spiced marmalade, rusty hinge
hat, shoes: black soot
dress: dusty concord
broom: scattered straw

Have a great day!
Hugs, t.

Sneaky Yeti ♥♥♥ Stamping Bella

Tamara here with you with my new Christmas card. Have you seen the new release yet? And more important question, did you get all the images that you like? I sure did. LOL
Until I get my new images, I'll be colouring the ones that I haven't used yet. For this card I used Sneaky Yeti rubber stamp, but I decided that I will use only house and Santa, so I covered Yeti with some tape and stamped the rest of the image. I coloured the house as gingerbread one and made snow with white frantage. I love using it on my Christmas cards.

Image was stamped on 300g watercolour paper with Archival Ink-Jet black. I know there are quite a few different ink pads that work well with watercolours but my fav is Archival. For colouring I used Distress Ink pads. Colours used are listed below.

Distress Ink pads used:
skin, house: vintage photo
snow: hickory smoke
tree: peeled paint
windows, decorations: fossilized amber
santa's outfit: barn door, fired brick
sky: weathered wood

Sentiment used is from an old Stamping bella stamp set, called Gingerbread House. I decorated the house with some die cuts and glitter.

That's all from me today.
