Uptown Girls cards
I have a couple of cards made with the Stamping Bella Uptown girls to share with you, this one brand new, the second a reworking of an earlier make.
This first one is Opal the Optimist and the text comes with the stamp. I made it for my eldest son's partner for her birthday and hopefully she has received it by now as I will probably add to my Facebook page via Pinterest, and she will get to see that .. ..
I printed off a piece of Nitwits paper and because a couple of my inks are getting low the shades are quite different but I liked it and it worked with the red mats and the sandy coloured card I used for the base and for the die cut swirl and punched layer. I don't actually own that MS punch, it's a piece I've had in my bit box a very long time from before I moved here when I was still able to meet up for crafty Monday afternoons with friends - not sure which friend the punch belongs to though. I've added the roses and little buds, a tiny red bow, red lace and the die cut butterflies then embellished with gems. Simple as it had to go in the post - I hope it arrived safely.
And here is my reworked Maybelline card. I've added the pretty lavender mat and fixed to a bigger card base, looks much better now I think.
Well that's it from me for today. I have to clean up the mess from under the craft table plus the bits from Izzy's annihilation of a pine cone .. .. but it did keep him quiet whilst I was trying to craft!
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your Sunday and hopefully you have better weather where you are. Still, it means I can't spend time in the garden so maybe after the tidy up I shall craft and make it all messy again .. .. ..
