Hollyhock Bittybloom

Well I've got to admit that I didn't do all these cards that I'm posting today in one go! I've been saving them up to upload to my blog...... and maybe that wasn't a good thing to do! But then again, I don't get bored with this company's stamps....... so what the heck! This is little Hollyhock Bittybloom - she's so cute and gentle with her balloon. You can almost see what she's thinking! All she needed was colouring, then matting and layering, and she was good to go!

Peony Bittybloom

One of my favourite Bittys - layers and coloured onto Nestability ovals - then mounted onto Bazzil dotty cardstock and finished with glitter and ribbon.

Bouquet of Roses

Another simple but stunning design from Stamping Bella. I love their clear crisp designs that lend themselves so well for colouring. Here I've used some Bazzil dotty cardstock to give the background some texture. And again, a computer printed sentiment that I've 3D's onto the card. I've lifted a couple of the flowers of the bouquet up too by 3D-ing them. I really enjoyed making this card. Hope you like!

Loopy Daisy

What a lovely image - so simple and so nice to play with. Again it's from super special stamp company Stamping Bella, and all I've done is coloured and 3D'd the daisy flower. I've added a sentiment that I've printed direct onto card - then finished off with ribbon and of course....... what no self-respecting card can be without, glitter!

Matilda Muffinbread

Yet another Stamping Bella image - meet Matilda Muffinbread! She is such a lovely image to colour. I used my promarkers to colour her, then glitter of course! I used glossy accents on her headband and shoes to make them pop a little too. I like to 3D these images, so I did so with her skirt and cake. Then I used my trusy nestabilities to give Matilda a place to me - stipple brushing a touch of colour around the edge. I created the background using Blonde Moments pearl mica powder and some cellophane in a sort of sponge technique. Hope you like!
