Now that Halloween is over, it’s time to launch in to the Christmas cards and crafts! This year I’m more prepared than in previous years, so I will have lots of inspiration to share. I’m not completely done with autumn though, so expect a few autumn cards here and there this month. I’m in no particular hurry for winter. 😉
Today I’ve got a little card to share featuring one of the new releases from Stamping Bella. When Emily showed this Uptown Girl image to me I gasped. Definitely one of my favourites from the release. Along with my card I also have a little card-making tip for you, so keep reading!
Isn’t she gorgeous? And surprisingly easy to colour once you get stuck in, so don’t be intimidated by that outfit!
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 have literally just arrived IN STOCK! Very happy about that and the fact that all pre-orders are in the process of being dispatched. There will be lots of very happy stampers this week!
US/Canadian Readers: pop on over to the brand spanking new Stamping Bella website. All orders are now shipped from the US.
I used Mama Elephant Creative Cuts Femme Frames dies for the image and frame around it. The stamped sentiment is from a Lawn Fawn set and was stamped on my background using Ranger Archival Ink in Carnation Red from the Wendy Vecchi Designer Series.
How do you get perfectly coordinating layers for your card? Colour them with your markers! It’s just as easy as it sounds and you don’t need to use a ridiculous amount of ink as you can see. I don’t keep much coloured cardstock on hand – marker refills are way easier to store! This is also an application where that chisel tip will come in handy.
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have enjoyed today’s post as much as I enjoyed creating it for you.
