StampingBella Guest Star Sunday: ROSIE AND BERNIE Diorama

Happy Sunday everyone! I'm back to share another project as Guest Designer for StampingBella. This one again features Rosie and Bernie. Aren't they so adorable! I absolutely LOVE unicorns!

Copics:
Skin: E50, E00, E01, E11, E13
Hair: E42, E47, E49
Pink: RV02, RV04, RV06, RV09
Unicorn: W0, W2
Unicorn Mane: Black, C7, RV04
For my project today, I decided to create a Diorama. I took an old Chocolate Box and converted the inside to this unicorn scene, adding stamps from Set of Unicorns and Unicorn Sentiment Set and using dies from my stash. The yellow, polka dot trim is ribbon.
This would definitely be my dream world! The Happy Forever words are acrylic sticker letters that I also had in my stash.
Be sure to head over to the StampingBella Store and grab all of your faves. If you're like me you will want all the unicorn ones, LOL!
Have a great Sunday!

StampingBella: Rosie and Bernie UP UP and AWAY!

Happy Sunday everyone! It's Rosie here today sharing another card as Guest Designer for StampingBella! Some of my favorite stamps are from the Rosie and Bernie line....one because my nickname is Rosie, and two I absolutely LOVE unicorns!! When we went on vacation last summer to Europe, I brought a unicorn and took pictures so when I scrapbook them I can use these stamps. :)
This was us in Bled, Slovenia!


For my card today, I used Rosie and Bernie UP, UP,And AWAY. I stamped the image on X-Press It Blending Card and colored the image with Copic Markers. Next, I fussy cut the image and all the hearts out.

Copics:
Skin: E51, E00, E01, E11
Hair: E42, E47, E49
Pink Shirt: R81, R83, R85
Unicorn: C2, C1, Colorless Blender, R81, R83, R85
Unicorn Mane: Black, C7, RV04
Red: R24, R27, R29, R39
Teal: BG10, BG13, BG15, BG18, BG78
Basket: E42, E43, E44
  I knew when I saw this image I wanted to create a scene card, but I also wanted to include the awesome sentiment that comes with this stamp.....so Easel Card to the rescue! The papers are from Kaisercraft Cock-a-doodle Doo paper pad.
 I raised Rosie and Bernie on foam tape. Also, I raise some of the hearts on foam tape and glued the ones further away from the image onto the cloud paper.


Be sure to head over to the StampingBella Store and grab all of your faves. You definitely want to check out the NEW RELEASE too....they are fabulous!

Have a great Sunday!

I absolutely LOVE this set and think the animals are so adorable! Head over to the C.C. Designs Store to pick up yours today. Be sure to use my code ROSEB46 at checkout for extra savings! :)
 
I stamped the images on X-Press It Blending Card in a row and colored them with Copic Markers. Next, I added the sky and finally some grass at the bottom.

I stamped one of the sentiments several times, covering up the parts I didn't want to stamp with washi tape, so I could separate the words. I did add an "s" to the word "ewe" along with the exclamation mark.
 
 
  To finish it off, I turned an older C.C. Designs balloon die into speech bubbles, and raised them on foam tape.

StampingBella Guest Star Sunday: Curvy Girl BESTIES

Happy Sunday everyone! I am so excited because I have the awesome opportunity to be a Guest Designer for StampingBella for the month of April!! It's a dream come true! I love all their stamps, and this stamp called Curvy Girl BESTIES is one of my faves. I think they are gorgeous and love how this stamp can be used for so many different occasions.

Copics:
Girl 1 Skin: E51, E00, E01, E02, E11
Girl 1 Hair: E42, E47, E49
Girl 2 Skin: E11, E13, E15, E18
Girl 2 Hair: C2, C7, Black
Red: R24, R27, R29, R39
Teal: BG10, BG13, BG15,  BG18, BG78
Green: YG23, YG17, YG67

I colored these ladies to represent me and my bestie. I met her in high school in the late 1980s and we instantly clicked. Over 30 years later, we are still friends, and now live less than an hour away from each other! She is definitely my sista from another mista. I found this wooden friendship sentiment in my stash, and thought it would be perfect for these two ladies.


I stamped the sentiment from the Curvy Girl Besties stamp a couple of times and cut it apart. I distressed the edge of the paper with Black Soot Distress Ink, backed each strip with black cardstock, and raised each panel on foam tape. The two ladies are also raised on foam tape. To finish it off, I added black enamel dots in the corners.


Be sure to head over to the StampingBella Store and grab some of your faves. Also, a NEW Release is coming on Monday, April 8th so tune in to see all the awesomeness!!

Have a great Sunday!

C.C. Designs: April & May Rain Shaker Card Tutorial

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today, I'm sharing written instructions on how I created this cute Rain Shaker Card inspired by Laura Dovalo Rasi.


Step 1: First, I gathered up the supplies I needed to make the card and colored my paper and images.
SUPPLIES: April & May Clear Stamps, In and Out Square Metal Die, Cloud and Grass Die, Distress Oxide Inks, Foam Tape, Glass Beads, Clear Thread, Scor-Tape.
I colored the ducks from the April & May Clear Stamp Set. The rain hat on the standing duck was cut out from the bear stamp. I used the Cloud and Grass Die to create the cloud panel, grassy knoll, and waves, and then colored them using Distress Oxide Inks.


Step 2: I cut out a square scallop frame, and glued the cloud panel to the top and the grass and waves to the bottom. If you want to add a sentiment to the cloud portion, now is the time to stamp it (don't wait until after you put the card together because mounting it on foam doesn't give you the hard surface you need to get a clean stamp).


Step 3-4: The foam tape I was using is kind of thin so I cut an 8 ¼” strip and folded it in half on top of itself to make a thicker 4" foam strip. I had to repeat this step a few times.

Step 5: I then cut the layered 4" foam strips in half lengthwise.

Step 6: I also cut one of the strips in half again to make a really thin strip.

Step 7: Now it’s time to measure where the thread will go. The blue, background square is 4 ½” x 4 ½”. I first measured to find the center and drew a little line in pencil. Next, I measured out 5/8 from the center on both sides to get the next marks. You want to leave a border on the edges to allow for more foam tape. You also want to put your pencil marks above where your foam tape will go so you can still see them as guides.

Step 8: Place your foam tape at the top and bottom, but leave a little bit of space between the top and bottom of the paper. In other words, do not line the foam tape at the edge of the paper.

Step 9: Line up the clear, transparent thread with the first pencil mark. Press the thread down onto the foam tape using the backing paper to press the thread into the foam.

Step 10-11: Load up about 10 beads on the thread and press the end of the thread onto the bottom foam tape. Continue all the way across.


Step 12: Trim off the hanging pieces of clear thread from the top and bottom. Grab your Scor-Tape and more foam tape.

Step 13: Cut scor-tape the same size as the top and bottom foam strips. Place on top of the foam to better secure the thread to the foam.

Step 14: Cut another strip of foam tape 8 ¼” long and fold in half. Cut the 4” strip of foam tape in half lengthwise, and place on top of the top and bottom border of foam. You will now have a double layer of foam on the top and bottom with your clear thread sandwiched between.

Step 15: Do the same to make your side borders of foam. To get thinner strips of foam to go between the lines of beads cut the strip that you cut in half in half again. Tap your embossing buddy along the edges of the foam so the beads don’t stick.

Step 16: Remove the foam tape and lay the scalloped border scene on top. Next, add your ducks on top of thin foam strips placed between some of the bead lines.

Step17-18: To finish off the card I stamped a sentiment on the cloud portion (it's better to stamp the sentiment before adhering the card together). I then glued it to a 5 ½" x 5 ½" card base with yellow, striped pattern paper. When you shake the card, the beads fall like it’s raining.

Enjoy!!
