Happy Bellariffic friday everyone. Aren't you glad it's the weekend again. We have been blessed with such wonderful warm weather this past week, it's almost unbelievable! temps in the high 70's and low 80's for March?? kind of unheard of, but we are not complaining. Cooler weather for the weekend though, we actually I guess you could say normal temps for this time of year, in the mid 50's.
SOOOOO, what did you think of Emily's release yesterday? Pretty exciting eh? Uptown girls, flowers (luv flowers), romona's, some new Mo's, and more. I can't wait to get my order!
Okay enough chit-chat, lets get on with my card for today. As you know it was a sketch challenge for today, which Ebru has supplied the sketch once again. She rocks!!!
Today I'm using CUPPATEA for my image.
I started by stamping the image on bella's bestest paper and the coloured using Copics and a bit of shading with pencils. After cutting out the image I sponged some oasis green versamagic around it leaving the die in place. The designer paper is by Kaisercraft called Lil' Primrose. When I first saw this paper in the store, and flipped through the pad, I came across this paper (the bottom piece) with the teapots and cups on it, and thought of this image right away.
I embossed the middle strip of c/s using one of the new m-bossabilities called mystic. Love these embossing folders from S/binders. They are reversable - yep, for basically the same price as many of the other embossing folders you get 2 embossing folders in one. You simply just open the folder and flip it over and there you have another design to emboss. Pretty cool!
I used a little sentiment called T for 2 , just the right size too. Finished off with some seam binding ribbon.
I'm sure there is some pretty eye candy over on bloggabella to see, so make a trip over and leave a comment as well. You will have a chance to win some bella bucks, to spend on Em's awesome release yesterday!!
Next week our challenge is SPRING/EASTER. With this great weather we have been having, it should put you in the mood, so get busy stamping! You can email your card to Emily by thursday night or upload it on SCS and use the keyword BELLARIFFIC1212. By participating you could win $20 in bella bucks!
Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for coming by today!
