Happy Friday! Got to say, I think I blinked and missed the week. I’m pretty sure I woke up yesterday and it was Monday… ;-) Not going to complain too much though, Friday is one of my favourite days.
Today is a particularly good Friday, as it brings both the usual Bellariffic Friday challenge AND the new stamp release at Stamping Bella! Yep, that’s right, the new stamps will all be available at Stamping Bella today (and all orders over $55 will receive a free Ketto stamp goodie bag worth $30!).
So, for my Bellariffic Friday card, I used one of the GORGEOUS new Uptown Girls images – SUNNY. When I saw the new Uptownies, I almost fell off my chair. Seriously. LOVE. Between them and the new Diane Duda stamps, I am in colouring heaven. Plus of course, the two chubbalicious Mo Manning images being released today.
Anyway, here is Sunny! Is she not faaaaaaabulous, darlings? Haha!
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers. The paper I used is a lightly patterned kraft paper that I have had in my stash for ages, I believe it was from Stampin’ Up. I used MFT Die-Namics Fishtail Flag STAX dies to cut the little banner (I chopped them down to make the short banner, and punched holes using my Crop-o-dile), which I embellished with gems. I distressed the edges of the papers with a chalk ink, just to soften the edges. The sentiment layer and mat were cut using Spellbinders labels dies.
And yes, for all you UK girls desperate to get your hands on the new release – they will all be coming to Quixotic Paperie! Keep an eye out for their arrival in the next few weeks.
