WELCOME TO BLOGABELLA

It’s Sunday with Tamibella

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!
Hugs, t.

It’s Thursday with Sandiebella !

Hiya sistahs, happy Thursday with Sandiebella !

Today Sandiebella teaches us how to make a Tower card!

Supplies:

Guinea with a Key rubber stamp (sentiment included)
Pink card, white card
Designer paper
Scoring board, bone folder, stylus, pencil, ruler, eraser
Stitched circle and scalloped circle dies
Adhesive and foam tape/dots
How to:

Stamp the Guinea image onto white card. Colour using your preferred medium then set the image aside to work on the card.

Card base: 
Pink card –
(1x) 5.75″ x 8.25″
Card layers:
White card –
(4x) 7/8″ x 5-5/8″ (side panels, back and front)
(2x) 7/8″ x 4-1/8″ (top and bottom front panels)
(1x) 1-5/8″ x 4-1/8″ (centre front panel)
(1x) 2-1/8″ x 5-5/8″ (back centre panel)
(2x) 3″ x 3″ (front diamond panels)
Paper layers:
(4x) 0.75″ x 5.5″ (side panels, back and front)
(2x) 0.75″ x 4″ (top and bottom front panels)
(1x) 1.5″ x 4″ (centre front panel)
(1x) 2″ x 5.5″ (back centre panel)
(2x) 2-7/8″ x 2-7/8″ (front diamond panels)

Score the card base on the long side at 1″, 2″, 3″, 5.25″, 6.25″, and 7.25″

On each of the score lines, measure and mark at 1″ and 2″ – top and bottom.

On the 1″ marks, cut across from the 1″ score line to the 3″ score line, and from the 5.25″ to the 7.25″ score lines. Repeat at the 2″ mark.

Fold back the outer 1″ sections and burnish with a bone folder.

To fold the scored/cut sections start at the top and mountain fold, then valley fold the next one, then mountain, valley and finally mountain. Try not to fold the inner score line on the valley fold sections.

Repeat on both sides.

Adhere the card layers…front.

… and back.

Adhere down the paper layers. The centre section at the back is for writing a greeting, there is no paper layer.

Cut the image out using a stitched circle die. Cut a larger stitched circle from pink card and then a larger scalloped circle from white card. Adhere them together.

Also adhere the paper layers to the 3″ squares.

Turn the square at an angle, line up the side points to the top edges of the centre middle section, and adhere down. Repeat with the second diamond, lining the side points up with the bottom of the middle front section.

Stamp the sentiment onto a strip on white card and cut out using a ribbon label die. If you don’t have a die, fishtail the ends of a 0.75″ x 3.75″ strip of card with a scissors.

Adhere the sentiment to the bottom front section.
