Bellarific Friday with Tiny Townie Birthday Party!

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all good. Today hubbie and I are celebrating our 11th anniversary! Yay! There's also another reason to celebrate- sneaky peeks for the new Stamping Bella release start tomorrow!!! Woo hoooo! OMG- you will LOVE all the new images!

Today's Bellarific Friday was a fab Mojobella sketch (see below)

I coloured Tiny Townie Birthday Party with copics and added white gel pen to the centre girl's dress. I cut out using the fantastic matching die. These papers are by Simple Stories. I stamped out one of the accompanying sentiments using PTI ink and added a teeny heart using a Mama Elephant die. The heart banner die is by Simon Says Stamp.

Here's your close up. I remember squealing when I first saw this image! Such an overload of cuteness! I think it's one of my most fav TT stamps.

Here was your Mojobella sketch.
Next week's challenge is STITCH IT UP. Add sewing to your card- real or faux! 

Get your entries to Em by Thursday either via email or just link using Mr Linky.

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Stamping Bella); Copics; white gel pen; Papers (Simple Stories); Dies (Stamping Bella, Nesties, Simon Says Stamp, Mama Elephant); Coloured ink (PTI)

Scarlet Lime Subscription Haul!

Hey everyone! If you're in the UK, hope you're enjoying the scorching weather! It's a bit too hot for me! I hate it when you can't sleep at night because it's too muggy.

Today I have July's subscription kit from Scarlet Lime Planner Society to show you over on my Haul Videos page. Enjoy!

Bellarific Friday with Mason Jar Of Flowers

Hey everyone!
Hope you're all doing good. I have a bit of a different card to show you today. 

This week's Bellarific Friday was an inspiration photo (see below) and I chose to use Mason Jar Of Flowers...

I stamped using Stazon Ink and did some really messy watercolouring with my Peerless Watercolours. I used Ranger Watercolour paper and I have to say I wasn't that impressed with it as it definitely warped and I taped it down to a board to work on. I didn't get it crazy wet either so not greatly impressed with it. I then sprayed some white acrylic paint on by flicking a loaded paintbrush. In some areas, I went over the stamp a little with a black liner to really make it pop. Finally, I cut out using Wonky Stitched Rectangle Dynamics and added some PTI Rainstones.

I can't wait to use this stamp with more traditional watercolouring and copics as well!

Here was your photo inspiration.

Here's your Mojobella sketch for next week! 
Just use a current Stamping Bella stamp and get your entry into Em (via Mr Linky or email) by Thursday. Full details are here.

Lili Of The Valley- Mary and Joseph

Hi everyone!

Thought I'd share a little CAS Christmas card I made using LOTV's Mary and Joseph...

I coloured Mary and Joseph with copics and stamped the Paper Smooches sentiment in Aqua Mist ink. I die-cut a frame and added pretty LOTV paper (now retired) on top. Star die is by Memory Box.

Here's your close up. Love this sweet couple and how adorably squishy is that bear?!

Bellarific Friday- I always start my diet...


I really hope you're all well. Life is a bit hectic at Honey Bootique as I'm currently clearing out my craft room ready for new windows (which have rotted!) and blinds, carpet, storage area and paint job. I hate not being able to get into my craft room but it'll all be worth it in the end as hopefully my revamp will be complete. 

I've put loads of thought into my revamp and have been planning it for so long now! I've got a lot of my inspiration from Kate Spade so it won't really look like your "typical" craft room I guess. When it's done, I will be posting a new craft room tour but it might be a little while yet as I'm working on wall decor etc that I want to get done before I show you!! 

Anyway, enough of that, now onto today's Bellarific Friday featuring Edna Loves Ice Cream...

Edna Loves Ice Cream was coloured with copics and cut out using MFT Wonky Stitched Circle. These stunning (I mean STUNNING!) papers are by Simple Stories. Sentiment comes with- I know how Edna feels- and is stamped with PTI ink.

Here was your MojoBella sketch for this week. 

Next week's challenge is an inspiration photo- these stunning flowers! You might be thinking floral or you might just wanna use the colours- however your inspiration takes you!! Your entry details can be found on the blog but basically you need to either link up to Mr Linky or email Em by Thurs.
