Strawberry Girl Video Tutorial

Good morning bloggers, do I have a really fun and cute card to share with all of you today.  I had recently purchased the "Strawberry Girl" digi from digital pencil too by Maurie J Manning and I decided to make a tutorial using this image.

Aside from being a videographer and designer for the Stampingbella Channel, I also have my own personal channel on youtube where I upload  my own videos. Creating these video tutorials for everyone  to enjoy brings me great happiness, especially when I get kind and sweet comments from my subscribers.

Back to my image.  I colored her with my prisma pencil crayons and for the skin and hair I used my copics.  The video has all the other details so I hope you will enjoy it.

Isn't she absolutely gorgeous and what about her bunny, too cute !!

I used the paper from October afternoon called Modern homemaker and colored my image with the same muted tones.

I have noticed not to many of you have watched it so incase you forgot or have been to busy to check out the Stampingbella Tv Channel  on youtube here it is.

Teacup Fairy

Hi bloggers, it's a late night post cause I did not have a chance to do it earlier today. I went out grocery shopping with the kids and let me tell you it was a zoo out there.

Here is my latest creation I wanted to share with all of you.  When I saw this  image on Mo's blog, I could not resist but to purchase Tea cup Fairy.  How cute is this image, colored her with prismas and  voila there you have it and a little bit of bling to give it that final touch of perfection.

Thinking of you with Bella and Bronte

Good morning bloggers and thanks for coming by to check out another card I made for someone very special who needs some cheering up.  This is an illustration by Maurie J Manning called Bella and Bronte. This image to me simply defines warmth, caring, innocence and love, and I know she will cheer up the recipient who gets it. 

I wanted to use muted but yet warm colors to create this card and Cosmo Cricket Early Bird collection was the perfect match for what I was searching for. If you are wondering about the sentiment and the butterflies, they are from Hero Arts clear stamp set.

Thinking Of You Messages - Clear Rubber Stamps

I have used my prisma pencil crayons to bring her and Bronte to life.  If you have been following my blog for a while now, you will notice I use prisma's to color all my stamped images.  I have copics as well, but I can't trade in my pencil crayons for anything. I must tell you the awesome talent that got me hooked is Paula Williamson and you can see her superb creation by clicking here

Now on to some personal chit chat. My kiddies are on winter break for two weeks and I have to come up with some creative ideas to keep them busy and by meaning creative I am not talking about creating Cards.  Have you seen the new movie Narnia  that's in the theaters ? well my daughter wants to go see it today so that's the plan for now.  Well bloggers, thats all I have for you today.  Stay safe and happy crafting.

Deer Santa

Did I tell you guys this happens to be my favorite Christmas stamp, yep it sure is.  I love everything about this image and it sure was fun to color.  My daughter needed some Cards to give to her friends and teachers so he is no longer with me but hopefully in the hands of someone who will appreciate him.

As always, I stamped Not Even a mouse on bellas bestest paper and colored him with my prisma pencil crayons. I had some K & Company paper scraps around so I used some from the Dear Santa collection.

This weekend my house was rather quiet.  I rented the movie Inception and the Last Air Bender and we had a nice night watching these movies with of course popcorn and juice.  We have the no pop rule in the house so we opt for the healthy which is either water or juice.  Have you guys watched Inception, if so what did you think of it ?  I loved it, it truly is a brain tickler.

Well, thats all for now folks, have a wonderful Monday and I do have more to share with you tomorrow.

It feels Like I am living in the Artic cause

the weather is just terribly cold today.  I actually almost fell on my driveway while getting the kiddies into the car.  The actual temperature with the windshield is -22 arrrgggghh how's that for cold. So much for doing the groceries today but I still have to go out cause I gotta visit the doctah.

Lets move on to more fun stuff shall we, here is another Christmas card with Bismarck by Mo Manning and you can get him in Rubbah at Stampingbella.  I had so much fun coloring this little guy cause he is simply gorgeous and I am sure he is going to make a friend very happy when received. I stamped him on Bella's bestest paper used as  usual Memento Black Ink.

So are you guys done your Christmas shopping yet ?  the malls are mayhem here is Toronto during this time of the season, that's why I stay indoors  on the weekend and do most of my shopping during the weekday.  The one thing I am very bad at doing is mailing cards on time or sometimes I completely forget to mail it altogether, isn't that just awful.  My new years resolution is be more organized, yah I have to keep my fingers crossed on that one.  

Speaking of New Years resolutions, what is your going to be ? I wanna know, just drop me a comment. Mine is to long of a list, but my main resolution this year like every year is to shed off the access weight. 
Well bloggers that's all I have for you today, have a safe and wonderful week.

Oh what a Gift it Turned Out to Be

Like I mentioned in my last post, this weeks Bellarific Friday Tutorial is simply filled with amazing techniques and products.  This weeks challenge was to create a gift or a gift card so I simply opted to alter a  wooden box I purchased from the dollar store. I must mentioned this was not a quick and easy project, it took time to construct the idea and of course painting it was not a walk in the park.

The image I decided to use on my box is Theo gives a Prezzie  which is available at Stampingbella. You will notice I have taken out the present portion of the stamp and just used the teddy bear instead.  The designer paper on top of the box is from Tim Holtz Lost and Found Idea-ology pack.  In addition, I used distress inks to color the large flower and added feathers and bling to give it extra pazaaz. The hinges and the hardware used on the box were removed from another dollar store box and used on this one.  I love to improvise and use whatever I can find around the house on my creations.  The feet underneath were purchased from Michaels and they are the 1" candle cups. 

I initially coved the box with white Gesso and then used two shades of acrylic green paint to give it more detail and depth.  Just sit back and enjoy the tutorial and I hope you will enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it.  

Next weeks challenge is an awesome sketch done by our sweet Paulineabella and that will be the last challenge for 2010.  Lets end the year with a bomb of entries so here is the sketch...

Hello Friend with Izzie

Hello bloggers, thanks for dropping by for another fun card I just made.  She is called Izzie has a Daisy from Stampingbella.  The Izzie stamps happen to be one of my favorite cause they are so cute and fun to color.  I stamped her on bellas bestest paper, used memento black ink and brought her to life with my prisma pencil crayons.  Did I tell you I have purchased the 120 set of the Caran D'ache pablo pencil crayons, yes I did and cant wait to get them and play.  If you look at my image you will notice tiny little flowers on her jacket, this is to give the illusion of fabric done with a small flower stamp.

I have an awesome surprise for all of you tomorrow.  Don't miss this weeks Bellariffic tutorial cause it totally rocks and let me give you a small hint, it's not a card !! yep you read it correctly so make sure to tune in.  That's all I have for you for today and see ya tomorrow.
