Last Bellariffic Friday of 2014!!

Today is our last Bellariffic Friday challenge for 2014 - where has the year gone?!

This week we had a sketch - I flipped the sketch and changed the embellishment; remember a sketch is a suggestion

Form my card I used Uptown Girl Paisley has a Prezzie.


The image is stamped with memento tuxedo black ink and coloured with copics.  I added some sparkle on her white stripes with a clear wink of stella pen.  I added some tags and a few sequins to finish it off

I kept the colour theme on the inside of my card and again added the tags.


Please stop by Bloggabella to see the rest of the babes and sistah's creations.

We will be back Jan 9, 2015 with our first Bellariffic Friday challenge of 2015!!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!!

Sweet Sunday 249

Today's our last Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC249)  for 2014!!  Karen made this one a little tricky for me....


I had one idea in my head then when looking for an embossing folder I came across a Happy Holidays die from Dee's Distinctively and I knew it was perfect


The paper is from my stash, the DP is from MME but I can't recall which line!  The embossed snowflakes is from cuttlebug

Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers blogs to see their creations and if you play along with us remember to link your card on Karen's blog


We're taking time off from Sweet Sunday Sketches until the new year - we will be back Jan 4, 2015 with SSSC250!

Winter Inspiration

Today's Bellariffic Friday challenge was a beautiful winter scene


For my card I decided to keep it simple and went with all all white.


How to make a snowman is stamped with memento tuxedo black ink and coloured with copics.  For the background I embossed white card stock with swiss dots then stitched the layer.  I then finished it off with some white sequins.

Sweet Sunday 248

Karen has a great sketch for us this week (SSSC248) and I flipped the sketch and  took the opportunity to use if for a couple of Thank you cards we need for an amazing trip we went on last month.  Hubby was invited to Cape Town for the Volvo Ocean Race by Helly Hansen who sponsor one of the teams (an all female team!) and I tagged along- I mean South Africa how could I not go?!  This race is amazing it takes them 9 months to complete with stops along the way.  Last week one of the teams crashed on a reef in the night; I am addicted to the app and watch the updates every night!


For my card I used the team colours as my starting off point (Team SCA).  The Thank You is a die from memory box.  I then printed 3 photos from our time in Cape Town (we then went on a safari for 3 days after going that far - the safari was AMAZING)

Winter Wishes on a cold Friday

Today's Bellariffic Fridays challenge was to make a Winter Wishes card, which is fitting for the weather here in Alberta.  Calgary hasn't gotten the snow like the northern part of the province but the temp is dipping more then I like!

For my card I used one of Stamping Bella's new Mo Manning images - Valerie with Snowman


The image is stamped with memento tuxedo black ink and coloured with copics.  Instead of dp I just added some swiss dots to my pink card stock.  The sentiment is a retired stamping bella sentiment and one of my favourites for the season

Please stop by Bloggabella to see the rest of the babes and sistah's creations.  Next weeks challenge is a sketch.  Use any current Stamping Bella image and email your card to Emily by Thursday to be included on Bloggabella
