Bellarific Friday with Mo Manning's Snow Pals!

Hey everyone! It's been a busy week couple of weeks- I've had lots of things going on here including a now empty craft room so I'm way behind on my crafting!! Eeeek!

Anyhoo today's Bellarific Friday was a sketch (see below). I decided to use the very cute Mo Manning Snow Pals...

This is SUCH a great stamp to colour! Lots of wide spaces so not too fiddly if you're not confident about your colouring skills. I coloured this sweet pair with copics. Papers are by American Craft- love the injection of the greeny blue colour- so cool! I die cut "snow" a couple of times on white cardstock and layered up for a 3d embellishment.

Close up! Quite pleased with the colouring of the fur- if I do say so myself! Lol. Let me know if you want to know the colours I used for it.

Here was your Mojobella sketch for this week.

Here is your inspiration photo for next week's challenge. Look at those gorgeous colours!!! All your entry details are here- don't forget you've got the chance to win some Bella bucks by entering!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Mo Manning @ Stamping Bella); Copics; Dies (MFT, Simon Says Stamp); Papers (AC); Cardstock (SU)

Bellarific Friday- make your own background

Whoooah! Today's Bellarific Friday is WAY too scary for me! For some people, the whole CAS card/ stamped background comes easy-not for me! 

Anyhoo, I've given it a go using the amazing Stamping Bella's Mixed Media Perfect Scribbles...

I got my inspiration from this card I saw on Pinterest. I wanted to showcase some of Stamping Bella's less well known stamps- did you know Em has a whole range of journalling and mixed media stamps? I stamped one of the Perfect Scribbles with grey ink and then splattered some pink ink using a paintbrush. I then added a strip of MFT paper to the right hand side and cut out two further strips using the MFT Washi tape die. I then added some sequins and a glass stone.

Next week's challenge is a sketchypoo

Don't forget you need to get your entry to Em or via Mr Linky by Thursday to be in with the chance to win some Bella bucks. Details are here.

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Stamping Bella); Papers (MFT); Dies (MFT); Sequins; Raindrops (PTI); Inks (PTI); Inks (PTI); Glass stone (?)

Bellarific Friday- I love you like I love my morning coffee!

Hi ya. Whooah! This week has rolled around quick!

What did you all make of the new Stamping Bella release? Amazing right?!
I can't wait to start using them! I've only made a few Christmas cards so far so the new release is all I need to start getting stuck in!

This week's Bellarific Challenge was to use a sketch (see below). I made a card using the fabulous Bella 2.0 Don'ttalktomebeforemycoffeeabella...

I coloured her with copics. You know what I love about the new Bellas? Being able to colour their eyes and lips! I coloured her eyes blue, added some mascara and some green eyeshadow! These papers are by KI Memories. I added the accompanying sentiment stamped along with a teeny Mama Elephant die-cut heart.

Here's your close up. Love how her sparkling eyes are peeking over the top of her cup.

Here was your sketch for this week. 

Next week's challenge is MAKE YOUR OWN BACKGROUND.
Don't be scared!!

All the usual entry details apply.
