HB2U- From All Of Us

Helloooooo there my lovely friends, how are you all?

Well I'm here with a new stamp today, ok new tamp & dies as my lovely hubby brought me some Stamping Bella stamps &some CC Design dies......yep I'm in love!!
So here is my first card with a Stamping Bella stamp & its also for the Bellarific challenge over here.
The stamp is Tiny Townies Birthday Party & I coloured them with Copics & chopped off their feet to go in thi frame.......this is the bit I took from the inspiration piccy over at Bellarific.. Isn't this image just fabulous!!!

Inisde is decorated & I used dies from CC Design Make A Card Birthday which are awesome!!
Ooooh I forgot to trim off the ends of the lace......better get that done after.

All of the dies used on the front are from CC Design Make A Card Birthday, except the rectangle frmae & that was made using CC Design Dotted Rectangles dies....I cut a few out in kraft & then glued them together to ake a stiffer frame.

Lace is from my stash & the papers are Maja Design Enjoying Outdoors.
The sentiment at the bottom came with the Stamping Bella stamp.

Copic Colours used are......
Skin - E04, 11, 21, 00, 000
Hair (from left to right) - E59,57,55,53,50 - E79,77,74,71,70 - E29,27,25,23,21

I used the same colours for hat shoes & balloons........yes I know there are no shoes but that was decided after lol. Also the girl on the right I added another 2 colours to her belt but forgot to write them down :-(
I also added pink shabby fran-tage around the image.

Thanks for stopping by lovelies, short & sweet..........ok kinda short & sweet lol.

The Best Day Ever

Helloooooo there are you all.........did you all have a fabby weekend?

Today I'm here to show you my boys card. I have to say it took me ages to makes this.....I sat on the floor of my craft room with papers everywhere around me as I couldnt decided.... For those that dont know me that well its extremely rare I choose papers then colour....nope I sit c& colour & then they go in little plastic bags til they are used lol.

Now when it comes to boy images my 2 favourite companies are Mo Manning & LOTV, they do the best boy images.........ok they do a LOT of awesome images lol.
Now hubster had been moaning & moaning & even brought me morenew ones as I got rid of all of mine & told me I had to start using Copics again.........still a lot out of practice but I will get there.... I'm still using DI's as well though especially for maggies ;-)
Now I have to say I think some images just look better when coloured in Copics compared to DI's & this is definately one of them.........

I used one of my favourtie dies which is Little Darlings Fancy these & think they are fabulous for foofy cards but awesome for CAS or male kinda cards.

This little happy chappy is called 'Celebrating 1'....yes I know I put 3 but I think he could be used for any age up to......yeah 3 maybe lol. Also I had printed him out a long time ago & I couldnt even remember what he was called lol. He is coloured with copics & I'm sure I wrote the colours down.......2 secs will be back with the list....I hope!!! Yayyy check me out I wrote the colours down..
Skin - E04, 11, 21, 00, 000
Hair - E29, 25, 23, 21
Dungarees -  B99, 97, 95, 93, 91
Top & Shoes - E55, 53, 51
Balloon - YG17, 25, 03, 21
Ground - W5, 3, 1, 0
Background - B00, B000, BG01, C1
I cut out the speech bubble from some 6x6 paper....cant remember which one & used it like a balloon form his hand.

The number die I think is MB but not certain & have no idea about the balloon dies lol. The banner that the 3 is on & also used at the side come with the Little Darlings Fancy Rectangles set which is from Noor Design UK.
Buttons from my stash & the paper is an old Basic Grey pad I've had forever & as always I stiched around the edge.

I have to say I love the look copics give as its so much brighter & I will be using them more now although I will stick to DI's with my Magnolia & some others too as I still lurve distress inks, especially for my foofy cards lol. Although after I did this happy little guy I did colour a Tilda.........just because she was already stamped lol.

Ok I'm going now as my washer is playing its tune to let me know the cycle has ended.
I will be back tomorrow with my Noor Design creation.........yes its not a card ;-)

Tatty bye lovelies & thank you for stopping by.
Big squishy hugs

Ok can you guess what papers I've used..........of course you can the best papers ever, best baby papers ever Maja Design Vintage Baby.......I have LOTS left lol. I tend to buy lots of the papers in both sizes when Maja do releases lol. Here is a mixture of 6x6 & 12x12.

As always I did the inside & even added a little pram in there using scraps. The pram was made using the 'One Of A Kind Baby Set' dies from Noor Design Uk.

Here is a close up of the stamp & she is called.....ok Im not sure what she is called as the older stamps dont have their names on the packets :-(
She is stamped onto Fabriano watercolour & coloured with distress inks & I added glossy accents to the bubbles & glitter to her wings & parts of the tin bath.

The balloons in the top right corner are cut from another piece of Maja Deign paper from the same collection. I added corrugated card under the image. I've also added 2 tags made with Magnolia dies but not stamped anything on yet as it depends what the card will be used for.
The Rocking Horse die is La La Land Crafts. Leave & swirly doo dah are Magnolia & flowers of course are all WOC.
