Wonderful Wednesday: Christmas Yeti Scene Card & Video

Phew. Here’s my first card of 2023, that was meant to be one of the last cards of 2022. I had such creative plans for December, then found myself with a hideous cold bug on top of everything else, just before Christmas. That’s life for you! At least I’ve made a start on this year’s Christmas cards. Watch my Yeti Christmas Scene Copic Video below to see how this fun festive scene came to life.

2022 Bellariffic Faves!

2022 was a mixed bag, like most years. Highs and lows, laughter and tears. The past month or so has of course, been one of the lowest points for us, and it feels very strange to be looking ahead to a new year without Emily. One constant throughout has been the presence of colour and community, and hopefully that will be our constant in 2023 too. Whatever the highs and lows, we have our creative hobby and our Sistahood.

With that in mind; it’s the final Friday of 2022, and while the Bellariffic Babes are on a break till the new year, I thought this would be the ideal time to round up some favourites from the past year.

Scenic Saturday with Amybella: Uptown Girl Eve

Hello bellas!  

Amy here with my final Scenic Saturday card for this year and it is one more for Christmas. This time around it was Uptown Girl Eve Under the Mistletoe that caught my attention and sparked some creative inspiration. She’s one of the largest Uptown Girls in my collection so going with a slimline card base seemed the perfect way to showcase Eve.

You can tell Eve is all dolled up for a fancy Christmas party so I chose to give her an elegant pearl white cocktail dress with festive red trimming. In order for that light colored dress to really pop, I would have to do something dark in the background. Now, to be perfectly honest, my crafting time and energy has been a bit limited as we near Christmas. So, where I would normally dive into a fun and detailed background, I instead gave myself permission to take it easy and grab my Copic airbrush system and a stencil instead. My apologies if this black bokeh effect background isn’t as inspiring as usual but I think it is important to share that not every card has to be a “work of art” to be a work of heart. Simple and chic suits Eve just fine, leaving me with a perfectly fun card and plenty of time to get some of the other things crossed off my holiday to-do list. So, if nothing else, be kind to yourself this holiday season and don’t let your crafting become just one more thing adding stress to the hustle and bustle of these days. It’s okay to do some easy-peasy crafting and still have it be very fulfilling.  🙂

With that I will wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a crafty New Year! I look forward to all of the magical background scenery we will discover together in 2023.

Bellariffic Friday: Festive Inspiration

Apologies for the lack of posts this week. I’ve been struck with a horrid cold virus that has wiped me out! Hopefully I’m just getting it out of the way before the festivities next week. Anyway, while I’ve been feeling sorry for myself and catching up on Netflix, the Babes have been busy creating more gorgeous cards to inspire us all!
