As promised I’m back today with a couple of cute Christmas cards featuring the brand new Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Savannah has a Star stamp that I used on yesterday’s card.
I really wanted to show a couple of different hair colour combos for Savannah today, so I didn’t use the full image. If you’ve been visiting my blog for a while you may also be aware that I do have a fondness for
butchering cropping Uptown Girl images. Muahaha! This is a great way to stretch the stamps and get more use out of them, especially at Christmas when colouring a full sized image can be more time consuming than you might like. To see the full Uptown Girl Savannah has a Star image please check out my Merry Christmas with Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Savannah post from yesterday.
I stamped Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Savannah using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on my favourite Make it Colour Blending Card before colouring using Copic markers.
UK/European Readers: the latest Stamping Bella releases are available to order at Quixotic Paperie and are now IN STOCK!
US/Canadian Readers: pop on over to the brand spanking new Stamping Bella website. All orders are now shipped from the US.
These cards are approximately A6 (4.1″x5.8″)in size and are top folding. I score and fold my own card bases using a scoring board and bone folder.
I used the inlaid die-cutting technique which I picked up from the fantastic Jennifer McGuire. Love how something so simple gives such a nice clean look, and also makes a nice flat card for mailing which is perfect for Christmas cards! The dies I used are Memory Box Cupid Heart (#98281) and Lawn Fawn Scripty Joy Lawn Cut die (my friend Tara at Make the Day Special carries Lawn Fawn stamps and dies). I have a huge box of self adhesive gems/crystals to use up, so I embellished around the heart shape with small flat-back crystals.
Once again, because I am a recovered paper hoarder and purged most of my patterned papers (something I’ll be talking about in a future blog post), I simply used pearlescent white cardstock for the die-cut layer and card base. I used my Copic markers and a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush pen to colour the card base and die-cut sentiment and give them a little extra sparkle.
