Stamping Bella - Dawn Heald


It's Friday and the weekend is nearly
here.  It's also the first Saturday of the month
tomorrow so that means it is Inspiration
 Day at the shop!

Tomorrow you will find 
Darcy Wilkinson and Helen Chilton
encouraging you to get messy with them!!

Do come and see what they are up to....
you will not be disappointed!

Ok, well today we gave our DT 
Stamping Bella
to play with.  These are a lovely range 
of stamps, there is something for everyone
and you can find them here.

Today we have Dawn to show you
what she has been up to -

Hi crafty friends, this week our topic of 
Stamping Bella is right up my street. I
 love sitting down and colouring losing time
 so quickly. And what I really like about
 Stamping Bella is the range of stamps.
 So do check them out and treat yourself, 
they stamp beautifully. My card
 is quite clean and simple for me. Hope you
 like it. Oh and I've used Copic Markers
 for this, first time I've used them and what
 a treat!

So to make this card - 
Cut a square of white smooth card and stamp,
 using black Memento ink, Stamping Bella -
  The Way You Move in the bottom right 
corner. Colour with markers.

For her hair
 I coloured with little dots to try out a
 curly frizzy style hair do.

Use two light grey pens at the end to colour
 around the image. Darker grey in 
shadow areas.

Stamp "Hello Friend" greeting from the Kaisercraft
 Shine Bright set in top left corner and 
small arrows in bottom right corner.
Then using the Neon Inks, stamp around the
 image with the two patterned circle stamps.
 Run black ink pad around square edge.
Finish with some black and clear gems.
 Fix to card blank.

Radiant Neon Ink Pads - Warm ColoursCool Colours

Thank you Dawn, this may have been
your first time using Copics but you have 
certainly done very well with them!

Ok, I'll be back tomorrow so see you then!
