Sandy Allnock Color cozy fireplace













I’m Sandy Allnock and it’s my final week here on the Stamping Bella blog…I hope you’ve enjoyed my cards as much as I’ve enjoyed making them! Big big thanks to Em for the invitation! 🙂

Color a cozy fireplace

Since we’re good friends by now…I thought cozying up to a fireplace together would be fun this week. Rudolph with a present on top just cried out for it with that sweet sentiment. Grab a cup of something warm to drink and settle in to watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

    Your work is always wonderful, one day I will be able to do work 1/4 as great as you. Keep inspiring us to thrive and be great. Thank you

    This Rudolph is delightfully amusing and I love it. Sandy Allnock did a fantastic job at doing justice to one single image, the deer, and giving it life by adding a home around him. How inspiring.

    What a wonderful idea, executed so well! Sandy, your imagination never ceases to amaze. Never would I have seen this reindeer sprawled in front of the fire place, but it works so naturally when you do it!

  8. All the stamps and all the colouring videos just make me happy. Love the vibrancy in the colouring in particular.

  11. Debbie says:

    Love this, Sandy! Constantly amazed by how you can play with the colors and shading and create directional light.

  12. I love this goofy reindeer! Sandy, your coloring makes me want some hot chocolate and to sit by a fire while it’s snowing outside! Fabulous card!

  13. Wow! I love that fireplace! It really helps make the card! Beautiful! 🙂

    I love how you did the fireplace and I love yellow so you got me there. It really looks like there is a real fire going in the fireplace but I know there couldn’t be one without a fireplace screen or you would set poor Rudolph on fire and that present too. Sorry, we have fireplaces and that is what my dad would say, “Where’s the fireplace screen?”
    We are going to miss you here Sandibella! Sniff, sniff, boo hoo! LOL We will just have to look for you on your blog and say howdy. Thanks for showing us what you can do and that we can do it too!
