Whimsy Stamps Scallop Six A2 Die and Cutie ABC for Christmas!

Hello everyone,

I'm back today to show you another new crafty goody from

which I teamed with the new
I used the
to cut kraft card and a piece of gorgeous 

This made two cards which happily gave me my two Christmas cards for my own personal 'two Christmas cards a month' challenge! 

I added the words fa la la and ho ho ho which I die cut 
with the 
in opposing colours to their tartan and kraft background.

These cards were so straightforward and fun to make (as well as being quite striking imho) that I could have made quite a few more!

Thank you for popping by!
I hope you are all keeping safe and well!
Happy crafting

Stamping Bella - 'I Do', Brett and Brenda Get Married

 Happy Fri-Yay friends!

I hope the week has been kind to you and you have happy plans for this Bank Holiday Weekend!

Today I have some wedding invitations to show you!

I don't generally take commissions but I simply could nt say no to my lovely friend and her now hubby!

After some very easy going consultation we decided to use some beautiful stamps from
and a sentiment from
...and here's a close up for you...
I love the elegance and simplicity of my friend Kate's choice.  The clean and simple designs along with the coloured images works perfectly in my view!

The images were stamped in black ink onto card suitable for alcohol markers and then coloured with Copic Markers.  (I'll pop a list of the colours I used at the end of this post for you).

I cropped Brett and Benda to make a smaller design which worked well considering both designs together.

Important note here if you consider something similar - I used the same white card to create the layers as I used for the coloured images.  

Not all white card is the same colour and hue - I discovered this ages ago in an horrendous 'white on white' card challenge which looked awful in the end because I had used different card textures and the whites were a mile off when looked at together!

I stamped the sentiments in grey ink as it looked a little gentler than using black.

Whimsy Stamps - Mermaid Escape and Wonky Windows

Happy Friday friends,

I hope you've had a good week this week!  The weather in the Gloucestershire has been awful which is a mixed blessing because at least it makes for plenty of crafty time! (:

I have made a Mer-May card using a fabulous new release die from 
and mixing it up with an older goodie - 
I made a shaker card which is something I haven't done for aaaages! - the Wonky Window dies are perfect for Shaker cards!

I created two inky background with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magic Powders

I then die cut one inky piece and used the other for the card background.

I stamped the gorgeous mermaid directly onto the background and coloured her with Copics.  (You can colour Copics over watercolour but if you are uncertain please do your own swatch test first)!

I then created the shaker part of the card using heavy weight acetate, Sparkletz and Sprinkletz.

I stamped the sentiment from the Mermaid Escape Stamp Set onto one of the panels I saved when I die cut the wonky window and then placed the panel back in the aperture.

Finally I added some Starry Sky Sparkletz.
