Bellarific Friday with Uptownie Chrystal's Christmas Label

Hey people!

Can you believe it's December already?! I haven't got half the "crafty" things done I wanted to this year but lack of time is always the issue. I'm hoping when I've got the big things finished- my craft room, blog and sorting out my YouTube upload problems- this will leave me more time for crafting and Project Life next year but who knows????! I feel like I say the same thing every few months but one of these days I will actually get them done!!

Anyhoo, onto today's Bellarific Friday featuring the very beautiful Chrystal's Christmas Label. Chrystal is December's STAMP OF THE MONTH and is 20% OFF all month long!

This week's challenge was to USE HOLIDAY COLOURS! Chrystal was coloured with copics. Eagle eyes will notice I had problems with Chrystal's dress. I had problems blending my red copics- one of them had got a bit sticky and wasn't blending and another one dripped and bled before I had a chance to do anything about it!! So excuse it not being so great! I decided to create a shaker card using a MFT rectangular frame die. I filled it with sequins, beads and faux snow. I fussy cut Chrystal making sure when I'd stamped her I'd masked out where she joined the label part of the stamp. Finally I added a Kaisercraft die-cut and the sentiment from Mo Manning's Seasons Greetings.

Here's your close up! How gorgeous is Chrystal?!

Next week is your last Mojobella sketch of 2016 so do join in! All your details are here. Don't forget you can win yourself some Bella bucks in the process!

Bellarific Friday with Tiny Townie Pamela The Poinsettia

How's it going, my fine crafty friends?

How's your Christmas card stash coming along? I'm nearly there. I've batch made some PTI and MFT cards which has really helped boost my stash. In between that, I've still been working on getting my craft room done. I really hope to be able to show you it by the end of the year. I'm also working on a new playroom for my lil boy so time is extremely limited which is why everything takes soooo long to do. Maybe I'll get my blog finished by the end of next year instead??!!!!

First up some Bellarific news...

Anyhoo, today's Bellarific Friday was a sketch (see below) and I decided to showcase the very wonderful Pamela The Poinsettia...

Isn't she just so gorgeous? Not only the petals and leaves but check out her shoes and little belt. Seriously!!! Pamela is coloured with copics and then I used the matching die to cut her out (how much detail does Em put on these dies?!Amazing!) I used MME Christmas On Market Street papers and matching enamel dots. Circle die is a Nestie and Flagtail Banners are by MFT.

Your close up.

Here was your sketch for this week. Next week's challenge is USE HOLIDAY COLOURS! Kerazy easy!!! Entries into Em by Thursday either via Mr Linky or via email. All your details are here.

Purple Onion- Cedar The Fox

Hey all! Today I've got a Purple Onion card to share with you featuring Cedar The Fox. 

Now you may have noticed that I used this last layout on my previous Stamping Bella card. Well, the fact is I've used it on ALOT on my CAS Christmas cards this year just because I've been so lacking in time so expect to see this sketch, er, multiple times but hopefully it won't be too boring as I'll be using different stamps each time!

Cedar is coloured with copics and fussy cut. I cut a stitched square to fit my card base and then die-cut a stitched circle within it. I used a sheet from Oh Deer paper pad and adhered to cardbase so it showed through the aperture. I then added Cedar in front and a PTI sentiment (cut out using MFT banner die). Finally added some sequins.

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Purple Onion Designs, PTI); Copics; Papers (Fancy Pants); Dies (Lil Inkers, PTI); Sequins (Doodlebug)

Bellarific Friday with Santa's Speedy Delivery

Hey people!

Hope you're all well. Today's Bellarific Friday was the inspiration picture (below)...

Obviously I picked up on the Christmas theme (!) but also looking at the pressies around the tree and chose to use the very cute Santa's Speedy Delivery from the last release. I coloured him with copics and fussy cut. I die cut a stitched circle within a stitched square and raised up on 3d foam pads. I cut a smaller square of patterned paper and adhered to the card base and adhered the stitched piece on top. I then added the Santa and the sentiment. I only used part of the sentiment by masking off the remainder after I had inked up the stamp.

Your close up!

Here was your inspo for this week's challenge.

Here's your Mojobella sketch for next week's challenge. Don't forget to get your entry into Em or via My Linky by Thurs for your chance to win some Bella bucks! Your entry details are here.
