Hiya, so today is the the last Friday of the month so it is SIS (stamp it sunday). I know thats confusing but you see it was originally Stamp It Sunday  and when I changed from a Sunday video to a Friday I just couldn’t bring myself to change the name, so SIS it remains 🙂 Anyway we have for you today Stamping Bella Vespa Uptown Girl Stamped Card , which I actually filmed last summer. I know that is insane right!? I do have a large amount of unedited video filmed that I go through in order for the most part. However there are always things that come up that need to jump the queue so there are still a fair few videos that were filmed a year ago. I do like having the security blanket of having that many videos already made and I have to say it  it has been a godsend as I know I always had something there that I could edit for you.

But back to todays project. Normally on a SIS video I would do the colouring part and then just show you the finished card, but this time I also have showed you the making of the card. So you tell me do you prefer this way of doing these SIS videos or the original way of showing all the colouring and then a look at the finished card? Obviously there is a compromise each way so take a look at this video and let me know which is your preferred style.

So as always with a video I have the video here first for you, followed by lots of lovely photos of our Stamping Bella Vespa Uptown Girl Stamped Card . But do keep scrolling on down because after those I have popped a couple of other videos for you of a couple of techniques used in the making of this card. I didn’t show the how to of those techniques in this video and instead and putting the original technique videos here for you. I also will add some links for you of the some of the products inc the stamp. So here goes, Enjoy!

Some photos for you, and don’t forget you can click on them to make them super big so you will be able to take a good look at all the places I coloured outside the lines lol! :-

Isn’t it lovely? Is that really wrong to say that about your own work but it doesn’t seem like mine now as it was so long ago that I made this that it felt almost like watching someone else’s video lol! So here are the two videos that I thought you might find helpful as the first one shows you the Copic Airbrush System and the second one is to show you how I made the card base for this project – my Easy Peasy Card Bases:


And finally a couple of links for you for a couple of the products used in our Stamping Bella Vespa Uptown Girl Stamped Card :

    You’re cards are becoming more and more elaborate. Wow all the doo dads and fixings you put into this card is fantastic. I loved when you put that glitter glue on it really made everything sparkle and pop.
    It was fun listening to the birds and all the nature sounds around you while you were working. How wonderful and beautiful it all was. You doing art work and the birds singing their praise for you. Loved it and it made my day. I could almost feel the sun and breeze.
    Great project Amanda and I think I even heard your dog. I just loved this whole setting..I would have loved to see a video of you working and all the special effects around you.
    Great video. thanks for sharing it with all of us.

    • hh thank you my sweet Pat and one day I will do a video showing you around everything but first I need to get on top of all the work :-)) i.e. make it tidy lol! It was so nice sitting in the sun colouring that lovely image. It inspired all the sunny colours I think. Thank you as always for your lovely comments, you are so sweet xx

    I also enjoyed all your other video’s of tips and tricks.
    I also loved that beautiful polish on your nails that was sort of white and glittery. I couldn’t take my eyes off your hands..those nails were to die for..
    What polish did you use. It’s fantastic..LOL

    • Im sorry hun I dont know – it will be one of ours as nails is the family business so we have a lot of colours 🙂 You see I was a criminal defence lawyer (well technically I still am I just dont practice) but then I went from that into our family business of nails. We have a big distribution business and we train students, plus we have the salon. But now I have stepped back from that a bit because this business has taken off and I am so passionate about my craft hugs xx

  4. Beautiful card.. sweet image and patterned paper, with great colouring.. Love it <3 .. thank you for sharing your talent with us at Art by MiRan challenge #15… good luck *wink*


  5. A beautiful card, sorry your card will not be in the draw as you haven’t linked back to Dream Valley Challenge. Marlene DT
