Say What!?!

     I know you all probably feel like I've abandoned you.  I haven't, I promise.  Being asked to be Vacation Bible School Director this year has kept me hopping like crazy the last few weeks.  Making decorations and all the other prep has been extremely time consuming for me.  The actual school started last night so I have my days back and am going to try my best to get caught up with you all.


     I just had to throw this little guy in my basket during Stamping Bella's last release.  He is just hilarious to me and I decided he would make a perfect card for my uncle's birthday.  His name is Nacho, the dog, not my uncle hee hee.


Copics Used:
E00, E01, E02, E37, E42, E51, E95, E97, E99, YR000

    The "Say What!?! sentiment comes with the stamp and I used a WPlus 9 sentiment on the inside with a little calligraphy pen writing of my own.


     Hope this little guy brought a smile to your face today.
     Be blessed!

Supplies:
Paper--My Mind's Eye "On the Brightside One", Recollections, Copic XPress-it Blending card

Hello Puddles


     Today I have some Purple Onion Designs sweetness to share with you.  For this card I used the sketch from Mojo Monday.  Instead of a square I cut my image panel out with a tag die and stamped it with the Birch Tree Background and Puddles from Stacey Yacula in Rich Cocoa ink.  I colored with Copics and stapled a piece of brown satin ribbon through the tag hole.  I used some dies to create the yellow strip and the hello sentiment circle.

Copics Used:
dog W1, W3, W5, N1, N3, N5, N7
trees BG93
grass G21, G24, G99, YG63

     I said I would post some more pics of the pups.  These are from my phone so they aren't so great.  They had their second vet visit today so more shots and all that wonderful poking and prodding they love so much.  They're taking a nice nap now.  It's really hard to get a photo of Scarlet.  First of all she won't sit still, secondly she's really black so very hard to photograph, and thirdly she tries to eat the camera.


And here's Rhett. Are his eyes gorgeous or what.  He's a big snuggler.


The stinkers are up to 11 and 10 pounds respectively.

     Hope you have an amazing weekend!
     Be blessed!

Supplies:
Paper--My Mind's Eye "Handsome Boy" and "Adventure", Bazzill, Recollections, Copic XPress-it Blending card
Stamps--Purple Onion Designs "Puddles" and Birch Trees" from Stacey Yacula as well as a sentiment stamp from the "Sweet Occasions" collection

The greatest love story


     Happy Bellarific Friday everyone!  Boy are my weeks just flying by.  I'm the director for our Vacation Bible School  at church this year so I'm up to my ears in preparations for that and whoever tells you that raising puppies in easy is a flat out liar.  LOL  Those two keep me hopping.  I'll share some new pics soon.  They've already grown so much.
     So.....last weeks challenge was to create a Stamping Bella project that was "anything but a card".  I love the Flower Garden stamp AND I love Distress inks.  For my bookmark I used one of the Simon Says Stamp Large Tag dies and elongated it by letting it hang off the cutting plate so I could make it long enough for the stamp.  I used watercolor paper and stamped the images with Versamark, embossing with SSS white embossing powder.
     I pulled out several Distress inks to color the flowers and leaves.  The sentiment is from an old Flourishes set.  Since I'm using the bookmark in my Bible I thought the words were so VERY appropriate for the greatest love story ever.


     Next weeks challenge is this cool sketch.


     To play along just use a Stamping Bella image (make sure you use something that's currently in the store stock) and the theme requirements.  Get your project photographed and emailed to Em at (emily at stampingbella dot com) with Bellarific Friday challenge and the date of the challenge in the subject line by Thursday evening.  Em offers a $25.00 Bella Bucks prize to one lucky winner every month.

The inside completes the sentiment.
