Sunday with Tamibella: Tangled Kitty Christmas Card

Continuing the Christmas in July theme…

Hi!
Tamara here with you today. Summer is in full swing here and I finally have my holidays but my mind is already in December. I have another kitty for you today, this awesome rubber stamp is called TANGLED KITTY drawn by KRISTIN FARNSWORTH. This is a fun (fat) kitty to colour in and it reminds me of one of my cats. LOL

Image was stamped with Archival Ink – Jet Black on 300 g HP Fabriano Artistico watercolouring paper and then coloured up using ZIG black marker and Distress ink pads. I only used Distresses for light bulbs. Colours used are: fired brick, fossilized amber and peeled paint. I added some glitter glue to green light bulbs just to make them sparkle a bit.

For card design I used one of my dies and made a shaker out of it. I added some cute candy, diamonds and sequins in the shaker part. Papers used are some new Christmas papers that I got in the mail and I think they go perfectly with this image.

Sentiment “Don’t get your tinsel in a tangle!” comes from Holiday fun sentiment set.

Kitty was fussy cut and glued to the acetate and then covered up with another layer of card base.

I hope you like my Christmas in July card. Have a great Sunday.

Hugs, t.

Sunday with Tamibella: The Cat and The Ornament Christmas Card

Hi!

Tamara here with you with my new card made for Stamping Bella design team. I used The Cat and The Ornament image to make this early Christmas card. First I stamped my rubber stamp with Archival Ink – Jet Black on 300 g HP Fabriano artistico watercolour paper and then I coloured it up using ZIG black marker for the cat and Barn door distress ink for the ornament. I added some details with white gel pen and then I fussy cut it.

For the card I chose some pretty red-white-teal papers from my stash. I made the center part as a shaker filled with lots of pretty sequins, diamonds and clay embellishments.

Sentiment “It’s all fun and games until santa checks the naughty list” is from Stamping Bella also. It’s just one of the great sentiments from “Holiday fun sentiment set“.

Have a great Sunday!

Tamara here with you on this sunny Sunday. We had lots and lots of rain in the last few weeks so we’re really enjoying the warmer and sunnier days. For this week’s post I made a card with Pinky Promise rubber stamp and Pinky Promise sentiment set. I stamped my image with Archival Ink – Jet black on 300 g HP watercolouring paper and then coloured it up using Distress ink pads.

I used two sentiments from Pinky Promise sentiment set, “Pinky Promise” and “Friends forever.”. There’s a lot of different sentiments to choose from in this set.

To finish off the card I chose some pastel design papers from my stash.

Sunday with Tamibella: Gnome Artist

Hi!
Tamara here with you with my latest card. I’ve been very sick for the last two days and I couldn’t sit and colour. I feel a bit better and I can’t wait to colour all the remaining images from the last release. For today’s card I coloured Gnome Artist. He’s colouring rainbow on my card and I think it came out as a really happy Spring card.

Sentiment “When it rains look for rainbows, when it’s dark look for stars” comes in Encouragement sentiment set. I cut the second half off, because I only needed the “rainbow” part.

Image was stamped using Archival Ink – Jet black and then coloured up with Distress ink pads. Colours used are: vintage photo, hickory smoke, gathered twigs, fossilized amber, spiced marmalade, worn lipstick, barn door, lucky clover, villainous potion.

I used white gel pen to highlight some parts.

Design papers used for this card are from various companies. I always try and mix and match as much as possible.

That’s all from me today.
