It’s Sunday with Tamibella!


Hi! Tamara here with you. Even though we’re in the middle of school holidays I’m already thinking a bit about next school year. My daughter had really awesome teacher this year and today’s card is totally inspired by her. I chose one of the newly released images called Oddball Girl Teacher. I used Distress ink pads to colour her up. Image was first stamped with Archival Ink – Jet Black on 300g HP (hot pressed) watercolour paper.

Colours used for this image are:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
pencil: fossilized amber
apple: barn door
leaf, books: peeled paint
skirt, shoes: black (ZIG marker)

To make the card I used some School temed paper from my stash. I added some stickers that come with the paper.
Sentiment “Best Teacher Ever” comes with the image.

Hugs, t.

Hi! Tamara here with you. I hope you’re all enjoying the Summer. It’s crazy hot here so I have time for colouring and making cards. This week I have a 50th Birthday cards for you. This is a card I made for a friend’s Birthday and the only request was there’s a martini mentioned or seen somewhere. LOL I decided to combine two different sets. I used Uptown Girl OPAL the OPTIMIST and sentiment from EDNA needs a MARTINI.

I decided to do red-white colour combination with added roses everywhere. I added big number 50.

Image was stamped with Archival Ink – Jet black on 300g HP watercolour paper and then coloured up with Distress Ink pads.

Distress ink pads used for colouring are:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
dress: pumice stone, barn door, peeled paint
bottle, glass: bundled sage, black soot

Have a great Sunday!

Tamara here with you with my latest baby card made for Stamping Bella design team. I used Curvy girl with a newborn rubber stamp. This is one of my favourite baby/motherhood images and it’s so easy to colour in and make into a card.

I chose to make a shaped card this time. I simply took one of my die sets that is a bit bigger in size so I could fit my image perfectly. I cut the biggest two from white cardstock and made a fold on one just half an inch from the top. I added glue to that top part and then added another piece on the top. This is a simple way to make different card bases at home when you don’t have electric machines to cut your card bases or dies meant especially for that.

I cut two extra shapes from baby themed design paper and made some die cuts.

Image was stamped using Archival Ink – Jet Black on 300g HP watercolour paper and then coloured up with Distress Ink pads.

Distress ink colours used on this image:
skin: vintage photo
hair: antique linen, walnut stain
dress: fossilized amber, spiced marmalade
baby’s clothes: stormy sky
flower and leaves: victorian velvet, peeled paint

That’s all from me today! Have a great Sunday!!!

Hi!
Tamara here with you. For this week’s post I made a card featuring Oddball Elvis. I loveeee this stamp but I wasn’t sure if I ca colour him the way it deserves to be coloured, lol. I did some resurch, looked at some Elvis outfit pictures and decided to go with glittery white-red combination. For the background I chose some music themed papers.

Image was stamped using Archival Ink – Jet Black on 300g HP Fabriano watercolour paper and then coloured up with Distress ink pads.

Colours used for colouring:
skin: vintage photo
hair, outfit: hickory smoke, black soot, fired brick

To decorate the card I added some red glittery stars and the word KING cut out from the same papery. I used two sentiments on this card, both come with the image.

That’s it from me today. Have a great Sunday! Stay Safe!
Hugs, t.
