Bella Parodi – Bunny in Pencil

Hello again! This is my third post as the April Bella Parodi guest designer.   As soon as I saw this digital stamp I was immediately inspired with several ways to use it.   I just love the results you can get using colored pencils on kraft card stock – it takes this card in a completely […]

Bonjour in color

Hello!  I’m participating in Neat and Tangled’s ‘little tangles’ challenge, which you can find here.   The challenge asks you to incorporate rainbow colors into your card which I did by creating my own background! Using the stamp set ‘Paris’, I stamped the little girl and the greeting in Memento tuxedo black ink on Neenah […]

Flourish

Hi!  I made two cards using the Flourish stamp set by Concord and 9th.  By changing the colors slightly in my stamped pattern I was able to treat one as a background and the other as a focal point.   On this first card I stamped an A2 panel in various inks using my MISTI […]

Oceans of Love

These sweet little mermaids are rather small (compared to most of the other greeting farm stamps).  So I decided to color them simply, focusing instead on building a scene with lots of cute images!  All of these images are from a single stamp set and are great for use with other underwater images I have.

I have lots of […]

Fairy hello

These sweet fairies are from Lawn Fawn.  This card uses a number of techniques to make these fairies stand out on the otherwise busy background.  For starters, you’ll note that the fairies are placed using the rule of thirds.  Additionally, the fairies are in color and all the other stamped images are in grayscale.   […]

Bake me a cake

I originally made this card with the intent that the little mixers would be the focus of my card. Just.didn’t.happen. Sometimes, your project has to evolve for you to end up with something you like. I measured the mixers, a stamp from a Lawn Fawn set, and did math (yes, I actually calculated it 🙂 […]

Beach babe ;)

This little beach baby is from an older Penny Black stamp set.  I colored her months ago with copic markers and finally used her on a card.  When I create water color or blended backgrounds I tend to make multiple at the same time.  This ensures I can play with multiple color combinations, account for […]
