Fairy Garden House - Stampingbella

Almost the weekend again and yay for that but where is the time going?  It's going to be Christmas soon, then a new year rolling over... whew!  I think the older you get, the faster time flies.
Today's card is one I've always thought I should have on hand and I finally got around to doing one.  It is for someone moving to a new home and it's funny, I've given cards like this in the past but I always bought it, simply because I didn't have one in my card box.
I used Stampingbella's Fairy Garden House and kept it quite simple with just the image, sentiment, a little Frantage and some enamel dots.  I did add some clear Wink of Stella to the flowers.
Have you ever tried Ranger's Liquid Platinum embossing powder?  Wowsa, this stuff is a fabulous colour.  I know my sentiment looks gold but it really is more of a platinum colour and I love it.  Gold seems so bright sometimes but this is my new favourite colour because it's one of those 'just right' shades.  Then my old standby and anyone who knows me knows how much I like the Stampendous Frantage.. I love it but not too much though, just little bits for accent.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Petunia & Penny - Stampingbella

Hi and I hope you are well and all is fine.  I'm afraid it's very close to officially winter here but I've been hoping it's not so.  We got a huge dump of snow the day after Hallowe'en and yesterday was so cold!  I don't like it when it begins this early because it means 5 months of winter and I'm good if winter is only a month... I wish!
Anyway, my card today is Stampingbella's Petunia & Penny Take a Break and I must say, I have always favoured these little pigs.  There's a sketch for this week's Bellarific Friday and I love doing sketches because all the thinking is done for me but for the first time in ages, I made what in my opinion was the ugliest card ever!  I used purple as my main colour and everything that could go wrong did and I just wasn't happy with it so I started over and I am much happier with this one.
Here's the sketch:
Okay, I'm off... I think I'm going to do some baking today, some nice sweet little squares and get a head start on the Christmas baking.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Polar Bear & Mousie - Stampingbella

One of my favourite things to do every year is make tags for Christmas and as soon as my new Stampingbella stamps arrived, I knew Polar Bear & Mousie would be perfect for a set of them.
 There are coordinating dies with this stamp which can be purchased in a bundle but for now, I ordered only the stamp.  I love this little bear and tried to do him a bit diffrently with each tag so one is standard shading and the other I used dotty shading.  Now I can see I forgot to add some little pearls to the second tag... how come you don't see those things until the photos are taken, watermarks added and they are on the big screen in front of you?
At any rate, I am happy with how they turned out and have plans for some more... with my other new stamps  got at the same time!
Thanks for stopping by and have a terrific week!

Bear - C5, C3, C1, C0, C00 and the pads are R22, R20, R00

Cave Couple - Stampingbella

Thank you for stopping by and I hope all is well.  Winter is just around the corner here... no snow yet but it's the air is crisp and keeps you walking at a very brisk pace.  I don't look forward to snow or winter at all but it happens every year and you'd think I'd get used to it.
Anyway, on to my card and this is going to be a very short post.  I have a dental appointment tomorrow and a zillion things to do tonight.  I didn't change dentists when we moved so it's a two hour drive each way.  The drive isn't the worst of it... it's what happens when you are in 'the big chair!
This is Stampingbella's Cave Couple and these two are just the cutest.  Very sweet image and I think that with different papers, this would even be cute as an engagement or wedding card.
If you are looking for it, I haven't added my colours and supply list but will do that tomorrow evening.
Thanks for popping in!

Slick Chick - Stampingbella

Oooh-la-la, parlez-vous fran├žais?  
This chick is just 'cracks me up'!  She's a little vampy and campy and she's Stampingbella's Slick Chick.  I like so many of the Stampingbella images but the little chicks are some of my favourites and I would say I am very close to having all of them.
Hope you are keeping well.  It's definitely fall here with the leaves having turned colour and many fallen to the ground but the temps are still 'light jacket' kind of weather.
Take care and thanks for stopping by!
