Crafting Ireland Guest Feature - Waltzingmouse Stamps

Halloween Card and Treat Bag

Hi! Today I am sharing a Halloween Card and Treat Bag set I made for Crafting Ireland featuring  Waltzingmouse Stamps Boo and Friends & Peek a Boo Sentiments


The card measures 4.25" x 5.5" and the papers I've used are 'Enchanted' by Authentique. I've matted them with black and orange cardstock. I cut the spiderweb circle with nestabilities and mounted my ghost on 3D foam. I added some Spiderweb corners and some Eerie bats to embellish. 
Copics markers used - C3, D5,C7, C9


The treat bag is simply a cellophane bag cut down to size. I used the same patterned papers as on the card. I cut a strip of stripey paper about 2" deep, folded it in half, slipped it over the top of the bag and stapled it closed. Then I used nestabilities scalloped circles and classic circles for the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment, from Peek-a-Boo Sentiments with 3D foam and added a bat to tie it in with the card.

Stamping Bella NEW release Uptown Girl Fiona Loves Flowers

Hi!! Today I am sharing a card I made featuring Fiona Loves Flowers, one of the new Uptown Girls from Stamping Bella


I kept my card very clean and simple, keeping the focus on the image and sentiment. I coloured her up with copic makers and added a single layer of red paper behind. To embellish I cut a Lattice Doily Border and added some Opal pearl pen. 

You can find all of the NEW release stamps, including Fiona loves Flowers, HERE

WOW! Embossing - One Stamp, Two Ways

Hi! It's my turn to share some WOW! Embossing DT inspiration with you.
Our theme this month is One Stamp - Different Looks

I made 2 cards using one of the butterfly stamps from the With Love clear stamp set.

On the first card I used Clear Gloss powder on white card and sponged the background with Victorian Velvet distress ink. 
Tip: Rub over the butterflies with a damp cloth to remove any ink residue. 
I matted it onto white card and used 3D foam to adhere it to the card base. 
I stamped the sentiment with Archival black ink and distressed the edges with the Victorian Velvet. 
Finally, I added some liquid pearls randomly to the card front.


For my second card I used the butterfly as a focal image. 
I stamped it out onto smooth card and coloured it, to match my papers, using copic markers. 
Purples - V000, V02, V04
Green - YG21, YG23, YG25
I cut  the image out with Lacy Circles nestabilities, adhered it to the card with 3D foam and added some liquid pearl around the circle and under the sentiment.

Powders - Clear Gloss

Stamping Bella Bellariffic Friday - Sketch!

Hi!! Have you seen the new Stamping Bella store???? It's fabarooni, go have a look!!! 

This week the Bella Babes had another great sketch to follow along to


and this is my take on it. 

My card features Uptown Girl Faith the Fairy. She's been coloured up with copic markers and a little stickles added to her bling. 

The papers are from a 6x6 pack that I found in my stash. I'm not sure of the brand as the front was gone off of it. To embellish I added some Cherry Blossom Branches, Cherry Blossom Flowers, Prima flowers, ribbon and a metal charm. 

Check out the rest of the Bella Babes makes over on the blog. Don't forget to drop in Stamping Bella Facebook page for all the latest news, and the SB Sisterhood group to share your wonderful makes with us!!

And remember, if you want a chance a winning our monthly prize, just email your entry to Em by Thursday so that it can be included in the blog post :)
