Bellarific Friday Sketch 14

Good morning folks, here we are again with another Bellarific Friday for you, we have a sweet sketch to work with this week. If you missed seeing the sketch, take a look at it here on Bloggabella. While you're there, you can read the very, very sad news that the physical location for Stamping Bella is closing it's doors. BUT, the online business is thriving and will continue on full steam ahead! I'm a little disappointed, I really wanted to see the SB store some day soon, but it is what it is.

I chose to color up the adorable Matilda on Her Swing with my Copics for my card. So sweet and innocent is lovely Matilda.

Papers are from My Mind's Eye paper pad. I was so shocked to see my local AC Moore had a ton of these paper pads from MME the last time I was there, they usually never have much that I like! MME is one of my fave paper companies, so I kind of went overboard! It's easier to not get tempted when buying papers online because you can't quite get an idea of their gorgeousness from a computer monitor, but seeing them in person? Uh-uh. I'm in trouble...

I even ran the wood grain patterned paper through my Big Kick with a wood grain impression plate to give it additional texture, and it looks awesome IRL. So hard to capture with a picture :-(

The rose is made from wool felt that I dyed myself a loooooong time ago, before the days of cardmaking. Before the days when wool felt was popular even. I used to make wool crafts all the time, like penny rugs and hand sewn dolls and other primitives. I kind of stopped doing all that years ago, and all my lovely wool felt sat in a pile, unused. I am so glad wool felt has become the 'thing', lol!

So make sure you stop by Blogabella to get all the details on joining in our challenge for a chance to win some Bella Bucks, and to see all the loveliness from the rest of the DT. 

Have a great weekend!


  1. Very nice card and the flower is great..thks for sharing!

  2. She looks so sweet on her swing. I love the way you put wood grain on your wood grain! Beautiful wool flower, glad you're getting a chance to use it again.

  3. I know exactly what you mean about feeling the paper....I found the MME packs at AC Moore too and bought everyone since they were 40% off. Woo Hoo that was a bargain. You've set a beautiful scene for us here using them. The woodgrain fits perfectly and the felt flower is charming. I love when you hold onto things long enough that they come around as "IN" again.

  4. gorgeous. love the image. fab papers x

  5. I know what you mean about the papers it's easier to walk away when you can only see the cover online! This is stunning what a beautiful scene you created


I appreciate you taking the time to leave me a comment!
