Garden Fairy

Happy Friday everyone, it's Kat here!

I finally got around to inking this gorgeous little fairy and I thought she'd look lovely in pastel shades...also I may have quite a few of these pretty MFT paper pads ;-)


I've used a selection of dies to create a little scene and that way I could use those super cute mushrooms too!

If you would like more pictures and details on how I created this card, and the Copic colours I used, then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Hedghogs

I've had a play with my favourite hedgehogs - I love these little guys and they always make me smile when I colour them.  As usual I've watercoloured my image using DI reinkers and my dinkiest brush for some of those prickly details.  

I've opted for 'no lines' by stamping the images in pale grey ink.  I masked each element of the scene, starting with the parts at the front (the hedgehogs) and working my way 'backwards' with the toadstool, tree stump and lastly the log.  Finally I drew some grass (with a very fine brush!)

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and the clouds are created using an MFT stencil.





And here's their close up - say "cheese" guys! :0)

Hedgie & His Acorns - Two Different Looks!

Hey everyone it's Elaine, back with some inspiration today here on the Dies to Die For blog featuring some of the brand new Stamping Bella Fall 2017 release!

Tracy has all the gorgeous new stamps and coordinating Cut It Out dies in stock now, with some Stamping Bella restocks on the way too.

Today I'm sharing two cards, showing two looks with one of the new LITTLES stamps!




Colouring Medium: Copic Markers


Copic Colouring Video:

Watch me colouring this adorable hedgie in the video below or in HD over on my YouTube channel.  I now create videos for all the Stamping Bella releases, so make sure you check out the playlists over there! Full Copic details are supplied in the videos


Here's my second card, this time with a pencil coloured hedgie!

I also used one of the Little Bits sets to create the background piece for this one. Love having all the separate accessories available as well as having the pre-assembled "Littles".

Colouring Medium: Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils
Paper: Strathmore Bristol Vellum Surface paper


That's it from me today! Happy shopping and happy stamping!

Squidgy and Teddy

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)  
 

There are two stamps (and a sentiment actually) in the Stamping Bella Squidgy and Teddy Set. One of the Squidgy's is a good size for a card and the other is a good size for journaling.

I was sitting looking at the packet the other day, trying to decide what to do with the smaller of the two Squidgy's, when it came to me... use the smaller Squidgy to create a background. Bosh! Job done. I love it when a plan comes together.

Supplies...  

Stamping Bella Squidgy and Teddy Rubber Stamp  
Whimsy Stamps FaDoodles Stamp Set  
 Make it Colour Blending Card 

Thanks so much for stopping by... Have a great day.

Have you seen the new Mama Elephant release which has just been added to the website?!  I may have treated myself to a few things, but while I wait for those I've been playing with the older set of reindeer...sooooo cute!

I also can't tell you how much I love this sentiment set; it's absolutely gorgeous :-)

Teddy Birthday Hat

It's another CAS card from me today featuring this adorable birthday bear in his fun hat. I'm not usually one for lots of different colours on my images, preferring to stick with one or two main colours, but this cute chappie asked for a rainbow hat. Who was I to deny him?!  :0)

Lee Holland Fox

It's a super simple card from me today with the full focus on this cute little fox cub from Whimsy's Lee Holland collection.  I've done a smidgen of doodling around the edge to frame him and layered the image and backing paper onto Kraft card, but otherwise, that's it.  Simples! :0)

Especially For You Petunia

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here today :)


So, I love pigs. I think they're cute. This was possibly reflected in my last order. Who needs all that delicious new release stuff, huh? ;)

Unsurprisingly, I was in a fairly CAS mood when I made this, which I thought was perfect for Especially For You Petunia, along with some FaDoodles. (You've seen FaDoodles, right?!) That's my line and I'm sticking with it. I'm off to find some more sweet piggies ;)
