Hello Bella friends, Amy here with a Scenic Saturday card. Yesterday was the first official day of summer and my current cards are definitely reflecting the easy living life that comes with long, hot days. I still had the Littles out from my last post here so I decided to really have some fun mixing and matching several of the sets onto one card. But how to do that without making it look too crowded and overwhelming? After a bit of a think I settled on turning my card front into a comic strip type of layout which gave me five small spaces to stamp and color individually yet come together at the end as one cohesive design. I ended up using stamps from the Sandcastle set, Umbrella set, Palm Tree set and Snorkel set then just made sure to use the same colors throughout all of the panels to help tie them together. I don’t know about you but I sure wouldn’t mind spending some time on that beach!
Keep cool everybody!

it’s Saturdays with AMYBELLA!

Hello Bella friends, Amy here with something a bit different to share this Saturday. Over the past year I had set myself the personal challenge of getting all 12 of the beautiful Uptown Zodiac Girls onto cards. Each month I would color up one of the Star Signs as-is in all her Zodiac glory as well as a simple altered version transforming her into a more generic image with a broader usage. I had a lot of fun bringing these gals to life and it is so cool to finally see them all together side by side. And since I did them over the course of a year I can also see the evolution of my coloring and card making in that time as well. What a journey through the stars it has been, LOL!
***NOTE FROM EM*** Seriously sistahs.. some of these are unbelievable transformations from the original.  Amy is so talented in putting her vision down on paper and through colour .. seriously click on the image and see the differences.. Beautiful!  Thank you amy for representing this line so beautifully! MWAH *****
