Weekend Inspiration with Delphineabella: Bundle Girl Beekeeper Scene

Hello everyone! Delphineabella here with my Inspiration Post and – I hope – a beeeeautiful scene! I created my scene using 3 stamp sets. First I stamped BUNDLE GIRL BEEKEEPER (girl, 2 bees), then I added a little separate bee at the top left corner from the TINY TOWNIE BUSY BEE set, and since I wanted flowers at the bottom of my scene, I stamped a part from the TINY TOWNIE CHERRY BLOSSOM flowers. I coloured everything in Copics and added a sentiment from the BUNDLE GIRL BEEKEEPER set. As a final touch, glitter pen and Star Dust Stickles on the wings, of course!

Copics used:

Sky: R20, 81, YR000, 00
Grass: G07, 14, 19, 28
Bushes: G28, YG01, 17, 25, 67
Skin: E000, 00, 11, 71, RV42
Hat: E35, Y13, 35, YR23
Dress: V09, 15, 17
Bees: W5, 7, 9, Y13, 35, YR23
Wings: B00, BV00, YR000
Flowers: E04, R56, 59

Thanks for stopping by today, enjoy the rest of your day! Hugs,

Scenic Saturday with Amybella: Tiny Townie Wonderland Caterpillar has his Wings

Hello!

Amy here with another Scenic Saturday post and this week I’ve combined the cute Tiny Townie Wonderland Caterpillar has his Wings from the latest release with the older Gnome Backdrop stamp. With that giant mushroom he is perched on it seemed a like a fun and perfect pairing.

I began by stamping Tiny Townie Caterpillar and then masking off the entire image so that I could add the Gnome Backdrop right over top. Nothing fancy and all pretty straight forward as far as stamping techniques go. Almost instantly I had a whole world for this little guy to live in and with very little work on my part. That’s why I’m such a big fan of all the backdrop stamps that are available, they make the whole scene building process that much easier. As I began coloring, the idea struck me that there were just enough mushrooms in the scene that I could color an entire rainbow of fungi. Once they were all looking lovely I decided to color Tiny Townie Caterpillar as a moth, in shades of black and white to contrast with all of the bright colors around him. The sentiment comes in the Oddball Maya set, and I think it fits so well with the rainbow theme that came together on this sweet card.

Stay crafty my friends!

Spotlight On: RAIN & Umbrellas!

Here in the UK, it is still raining. It has been raining almost every day since what feels like forever, but may only have been November. Still.  Almost every dog walk we go on is waterlogged and muddy, and the days have been generally grey and wet. So for today’s spotlight we’re going to take a look at a couple of rainy day themed stamps in our collection!

Scenic Saturday with Amybella: Bundle Girl among Foxgloves

Hello, hello!

Amy here with a new Scenic Saturday post. With so many fantastic stamps included in the last release there are still plenty that I haven’t inked up yet, making today the perfect time to get another Spring cutie on a card. This darling image is Bundle Girl Among the Foxgloves and how tiny she is perched atop that clay flower pot.

You may notice that the Bundle Girl on my card looks a bit different than the original image in the store. That’s because I had some fun with masking and selective inking to add more flowers and an extra pot to my scene. Using Memento Rich Cocoa ink I first stamped Bundle Girl Among the Foxgloves as is, low and on the right hand side of the card front. I then masked off the entire image before repositioning the stamp and adding ink to only the larger stem of flowers and stamping them behind the first flowers. I repeated this process of repositioning and inking only a single stem two more times, until I had filled up the space with foxgloves. Wanting to extend the scene a little further across the card, I masked off the flower stems out front before inking up just the flower pot and laying it on its side. There wasn’t much of a stamped line left along the bottom of the image but once I colored in the dirt beneath the pot you don’t even notice the missing line work. Once all of the masks were removed I was left with an abundant garden full of flowers for the wee Bundle Girl to enjoy. I was also left with a small smudge of ink just above the center stem of flowers, which wouldn’t do because the clean and simple card design that I had planned meant having the ground I colored in fade to white at the top of the card, and even a tiny bit of errant ink would stand out like a sore thumb. So I took a page out of the great Bob Ross’ playbook and told myself, there are no mistakes… just embellishment opportunities. Using a few yellow and brown markers, plus a black multi liner pen for the legs and wings, I colored a very simple little bee shape right over the smudge, then gave him a couple of friends for good measure. They certainly weren’t part of my original design plan but I think they ultimately added some extra charm to the over-all design. The sentiment is from the Hello Spring Sentiment set and I stamped it in the opposite corner from the image, in an ink color that coordinates with the flowers, which adds a sense of balance and cohesion to the completed card.
Hopefully this reminds you that rather than get upset the next time a crafting mishap occurs, instead look at it as a challenge to get really creative and turn it to your advantage.  😉

Stay crafty my friends!
