Here is my latest (hm...and only) Bella card. I submitted this one for the Bellarific Monday Sketch! Cross your fingers that it gets selected to be displayed on her blog :)
I used Bubblebella, colored her in with Copic markers and blinged her up some with the Spica Glitter Markers. I really love how she turned out. Paper and CS are from Close to my Heart, colors are Tulip and Creme Brulee! The ribbon is just something I found that matched the Tulip CS closely. The sentiment is also from Stamping Bella and it's on pop dots. This is a mosaic style card. Basically I stamped the image first, colored it in, then cut it into 4 even squares, then I mounted it on CS and cut it to the same size then double matted it onto a coordinating CS. I roughed up the edges a little and VIOLA! A really cute card!!
The camera washed it out a little, it's much prettier in person!

Hope you like it!

Fathers Day Card using 2 different Riley stamps

Whew! It's been a LONG time since I've posted anything...Better get back on track. I recently obtained a new little pup. He's a black lab and his name is Samson. He's 7 weeks old today. I'll post some pics of him later..for now here is the card I made for my dad from my kids for Fathers Day. I used 2 different Riley Moose stamps from Hanna Stamps. I combined the two stamps to make one scene. I got the idea from another blog but I can't remember the name. I loved it so much that I re-created it myself. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I used my Copic markers to color the images. I created the lake and the little ledge that the Tent Riley is on using just a plain fine point marker then colored the image in with my copics. The size of the card is an unfamiliar size, it's like 3X7 or something along those lines :)

Thanks for looking!
