Hello everyone. Hope you are all having a good week. Today is actually my Friday since I'm off work until Tuesday. Just using up some vacation days!
After doing that huge card order - which most of them were done by stamping and die cutting rather than colouring, I was ready to sit down and colour something.
I pulled out my latest Stamping Bella order that I received over a month ago, just didn't have a chance to use them yet. I decided on 'Cakeabella'. I am so loving these new bella 2.0 images. I have all the original stick figure bellas - still love those too, but there is just something about having actual arms, legs, face with features and lots of hair - so life like.
I stamped her onto some white cougar 100 lb card stock using memento black ink. I used copics for the skin tones, then switched to prismacolour pencils for the rest. After colouring her jeans I decided to paper piece her apron. I rummaged through my scrap dp bucket and found some K & Co paper. I then finished colouring her and then cut her out using MFT inside & out stitch round rectangle die.
I used fun foam cut slightly smaller than my image piece and adhered to the back. For the sentiment - which comes with the set - I embossed it onto a strip of black cardstock using versamark and white embossing powder. Cut one end to make a flag fishtale end.
Because my scrap piece of dp was only just that - a scrap piece, it wasn't large enough to cover the front of the card. I decided to use my MFT Homespun stitch lines die to do some piercing/stitching long the top of the card, and then rounded the right corner.
I wrapped some twine around the card 3 times then tied a bow over to the left. Added my image to the card and then adhered the sentiment. Finished off with lots of glitter on the cake and 3 enamel dots.
So there you have it, a super fun birthday card. See you soon, thanks for stopping by.
