It's Bellarific Friday!

Happy Friday all! It's Bellarific Friday today. This week's theme is Christmas. How cool was that? You guys know how many cards I still have left to do so this was a great challenge for me.

I stamped Snowy House from Stamping Bella onto some Classic Crest CS and colored it with my Copics. I used the colors in this great DP from My Minds Eye for inspiration. It's not your traditional Christmas colors for sure, but that's why I love it so. Ya know, when you make this many Christmas cards, red and green get a little old so these colors were a FRESH look for me. Hey Christmas is bright and fun so why not, right? What a wonderful time of the year, don't you agree? Everyone is SO happy and cheerful. I just love it. Not to mention the shopping too! *grin*

I added some Glamour Dust to the roof, snowflake and ground for a little snow shimmer and used my Nestie tag die to cut out the sentiment. I pulled this ribbon from my stash and it matched this DP perfectly and fit the Nestie tag slots too. Hey, they're a match made for each other!! I used the reverse side of this paper for a contrasting border and punched both sides with my EK Success border punch. I stitched the DP around the edges to finish and there you have Christmas card #30!! Be sure to hop over to Bloggabella and check out the other Bella Babes' creations and of course the AWESOME sistahood too! Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. I love this card. I'm using this image and the same paper for some of my cards, too. Do you remember what Copic numbers you used on this?

  9. Hi Cindy,
    Well, I don't keep track of the Copics as I'm coloring but I can narrow it down to a few for you since I don't have that many colors. The bluegreen is BG11 and BG13, the pink is R81 and R83 and possibly R85, the orange is YR00 and YR02 and the green would be YG13 and YG17. Thank you so much for your comment. I thought this was a really cute card too! Hope this helps. Jeanie
