Bella, Fish and busy-ness.

I have been a super busy girl irl and not been keeping up with my blogging duties. 🙁 I have been limiting myself from paper crafting as I need to organize my life. I am out cruising the internet for possible future careers and there have been a few places that have sparked my interest. I will let you know the details when they happen. I will be catching up with your blogs later today or tomorrow. Expect some spamming from me. 😉

This first creation is for a Bella themed ATC swap that I completed at the Stamp Shack. We each got to choose a Bella, and I had this martini paper hanging around, so I was quick to choose Cosmobella. The martini paper is actually quite dull in colour so I had to pick bright colours to go with it. Do you see the hint of glitter on her belt, flip flops, eyelashes, and in her martini? lol, I couldnt help myself – I love that Sakura glitter pen! I actually coloured her using only Prismacolor pencils! I normally add odourless mineral spirits to blend, but I wanted to test my colouring skills, and I think I didn’t do too badly.

Supplies used: Cosmobella from Stamping Bella, Bazzill cs, Karen Foster pp, Versacolor inks, Sakura Gelly Roll pen, Doodlebug brad, ribbon from Kerry.

Next up is a set of 3×3 cards I made for another swap hosted by Sherri at the Stamp Shack. My first ever 3×3 cards! Oh man, these things were so tiny… I sat there for a long time playing before I came up with this design. I brushed over the embossed spots with a bit of white ink to highlight the texture a little more. Nothing to extravagant, just simple. Wish my life were more like that! lol.

Supplies used: Very Punny fish + sentiment from Stampin’ Up, Bazzill cs, Spots Quickutz embossing template, ribbon frim Michael’s, Versacolor inks.

  1. Cute cards.
    I was actually going to post a poll…”What do you think happened to Thanh?” with a list of options to choose from…like you are doing so well at SFU that they’ve asked you to teach so you are too busy to blog. You and BF ran away together. Your parents found out you and BF ran away together and took away your laptop. Things like that.
    Glad to see it’s only something as trivial as finding a career.

  2. How in the world are we all getting so bogged down with life lately? Man oh man, I’m with ya sister! Great creations. I’m not keeping up with my blogging so well.
