Friendly Bellarific Friday


I love this circle of Snowman friends! It's so adorable with them all hugging, or maybe they're in a huddle about to play snowman football!?! This week's Bellarific sketch hostess was Joanneabella...thanks for a fun sketch Joanne!

I actually put away my copics for this card and pulled out my Lyras and mineral spirits! I stamped Group Hug with Memento Tuxedo black onto Prism Nautical Blue Light then coloured it with pencils. It's cut out with circle Nestabilities, layered onto a circle of white then onto a scallop circle on Not Quite Navy.

The white card base is 5 inches square. I layered Not Quite Navy and more Nautical Blue Light then added some fun patterned paper from Pebbles Inc.. A little sewing around the edge adds a nice detail, especially to the green triangle. The sentiment is also from Stamping Bella. I played around with a few things for the diagonal line and finally landed on a row of Blue Jean Glitter Bella dots in both sizes. I can't wait to see what the other Sistahs have come up with for this sketch. Let's hop over to Bloggabella and see.

This card is teetering on my Christmas card pile...it might make it to Christmas because of the winter theme, but I may end up giving it away before then. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Man Karen, you are making my stamp wish list sooooo longgggg! These little huddled snowmen are to die for! I do believe they may just be trying to stay warm:)) Love the shade of green and your stiching. I've never seen those pebbles before but they sure do dress up your card! Could that be the 2nd Xmas card I've seen this week from you??? You are getting ahead of yourself if it is:))
