Stamping bella -Muse inspiration #193

Stamping Bella
I love these crazy chicks - the stamped image was coloured with copics/promarkers and I am entering this card in the current Muse Challenge #193 and Casology-Soft

I looked at the card by Jenni Murray and focussed on the cute character and the red /green colours and of course the humour of the sentiment as seen in the squashed chick - eek does that mean the chick has had too much christmas "cheer".
After I saw the title of casology I realised that I could enter this poor wee chick as the parcel had a "Soft " landing !

Avery Elle- Beautiful Bows

Beautiful bows
I was so happy when this stamp set arrived - It is so versatile -christmas /birthday /male /female - wonderful .I used the Misti to get a really good ink coverage .I made several very quickly - always a good thing .Some I matted others just left very simple .I have made the first batch in these 2 colours but will make more in other colours soon . AND not a distress ink in sight -hehehehe

To everyone in the USA happy Thanksgiving - enjoy your holiday and rest with your families

I watched a fantastic youtube clip and then realised I had the same stamp - You use the misti as this is a multiple stamping technique to get all the colours ,Watching the video has made think me about how I can use a whole load of stamps that I could never a good effect with ..... so watch this space
Heres the video I watched

Hope you love it as much as I did

Christmas Cards - Penny Black and a border die

Penny Black/SSS
Happy Monday to you all - this was an experiment but it does take a while ! So not one I would choose for en-mass Christmas cards . I die cut the snow border then carefully stuck it on the card .I blended some distress inks ( I do own other inks - honest ! )I then stamped the branches and bird using the Misti - I used a white gel pen for snow and nuvo drops for the berries .I added some shimmer to the die cut but it doesn't show in the photo sadly .

Thank you for looking please feel free to comment x

Papertrey -Spruce and Sprigs

Spruce and Sprigs
Afternoon - I bought this set after seeing a card by "Amusing Michelle " and "mango boys and me " blogs - it was a must have purchase -oops .This is my first attempt at using them .I thought I would be super clever and die cut a mask set all ready -but didn't read the mask sheet instructions - why would you ! Ha coz I die cut them back to front so couldn't use them properly - that will definitely be a lesson learnt -lol . Any way after stamping and masking -I used Ranger glossy accents on the berries .

I then thought I would make a more modern version
spruce and sprigs
Using Delicata Gold shimmer ink .It was a lot quicker to do - but for me the jury is still out .The ink is lovely and sparkly but i had to re stamp a few times to get depth -thank goodness for my misti .Again I added glossy accents to the berries

Umm  decision time - which do I make more of ............. both me thinks

Another Avery elle bauble (circle Tag) or 3

More of the same !-but actually  slightly different versions
With the version at the bottom - I finally managed to use a NBUS -penny Black -Santas Journey - when I bought it I had not realised how small the stamp was but it works quite well within the AE circle tag which I'm using as a bauble- so doubly delighted.

thank you for looking

Christmas cards season -and MISTI

   Sorry I haven't posted for a while - been busy but doing what I have no idea ! I have finally started to make the Christmas cards - yippee - Been the usual hit and miss collection - but I have to say THANK GOD FOR MISTI - doesn't it make life SOOOOO much easier when doing multiple cards and/or colouring stamps and re stamping, If you don't have one  ask Santa  - its a must have thing.......
    Anyway back to the plot - Christmas cards I will try and post a couple over the next few days - here's the first - please comment good or bad - I read them all and more importantly I love advice-What do you think ?
Christmas Bauble
I die cut the tag - then marked off and stamped the homestead - using the mask (post it note ripped ) i made a snow bank /horizon-then using a dried out baby wipe - blended the sinking sun ,then stamped the trees - I used some watered down DI to make some shadows .Then on the base card I stamped the branch in DI then coloured the cones on the stamp with a couple of distress markers - It didnt seem to "pop"  so I then stamped again with versamark and clear embossed .All this branch stamping was done using the amazing misti - yip yip yip

I have finally leant how to post a photo on Splitcoaststampers - and my first card on there was the HouseMouse Christmas baubles - and I made it on to Fav Cards on the week - feeling so chuffed !
