Stamping Bella Previews, Day 3

Hello everyone! I’m back today sharing two more cards featuring images from Stamping Bella‘s upcoming release. All images and sentiments will be available tomorrow, July 14.

On my samples, all images were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. Markers used are listed beneath each photo.

Gnome Riding the Waves

My first card uses new Gnome Riding the Waves. He’s so cute with his little “hang ten” hand signal. 🙂 I layered him among some die-cut waves. The board is tucked within the layers, and I used foam tape to pop up his head.

Hello everyone! I’m popping in today to share several samples using new images and sentiments coming to Stamping Bella Thursday, July 14.

Look Up and Where Flowers Bloom

Hello everyone. I’m back today with this week’s challenge from Stamping Bella as well as an extra card I created this week.

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl in the Sky/Stars & Clouds Backdrop
Copic markers – B21, B23, B28, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E30, E31, Y06, Y08, Y21, YR23

For the challenge, which was to use any Bundle Girl image, I chose Bundle Girl in the Sky. I paired her with the sentiment included in the set and Stars & Clouds Backdrop. I stamped the hanging stars onto black cardstock using white ink then white embossed. I then stamped the stars onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with markers and cut out each (even the tiny ones) and adhered in place. The Bundle Girl was also cut out and popped up on foam tape. Additional dots were added using a white extra-fine tip Sharpie marker.

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lily of the Valley
Copic markers – BG10, C00, C1, C2, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E27, E29, R00, R83, R85, RV11, RV32, YG03, YG06, YG09

Also this week I used Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lily of the Valley with a Spring Sentiment. I added a few die-cut flowers and epoxy dots over Queen & Company’s pretty Flirty Florals patterned paper.

As a quick reminder, Bundle Girl Bunny is available at 50% off through March 31st.

Stamping Bella-A few more previews

Hi everyone! I’m back today to share my final four samples using new images from Stamping Bella. All new stamps will be available for purchase tomorrow, Monday March 14.

Note: All images were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Oddball Mom & Dad, Oddball Siblings and Oddball Family Pets

First, I combined new Oddball Mom & Dad with Oddball Siblings and Oddball Family Pets. I love the ability to create your own family. 🙂 The sentiment is from Celebrate & Congratulate, minus the exclamation point at the end…because they don’t look all that enthusiastic. Haha. The pink die-cut balloon is popped up on a bit of foam tape to add dimension. Strings were drawn in using a Copic Multiliner. Paper is from Queen & Company’s Sweet Shop.

Oddball Leonardo

Stamping Bella Oddball Leonardo
Copic markers – B16, B19, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, BG10, BG11, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, G09, G28, R29, R39, R59, R89, W00, W1, W2, W4, W5, W7, V06, V09, Y13, Y19, YR09, YR16

Next is Oddball Leonardo. He comes along with the sentiment I used here as well as “SMILE! It’s your day!” I think he’s fabulous. I used Queen & Company’s Happy Hearts paper and a sprinkling of colorful enamel dots.

Curvy Girl Posing

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E27, E29, E33, E50, R83, RV11, RV32, W00, W1, W2, YG03, YG09, YR12, YR21

Here’s another lovely mom/daughter combo with Curvy Girl Posing. The sentiment is so true. White dots were added to the dresses using an extra fine tip white Sharpie marker.

Bundle Girl with Cherry Blossoms

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl with Cherry Blossoms

Last for today, I have Bundle Girl with Cherry Blossoms. I stamped the branch portion of the image across the top and added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle. Her outfit was paper-pieced using (very old) patterned paper. I seem to have misplaced my notes with the list of Copic markers used. Sorry about that.

Please stop by the Stamping Bella blog to see additional samples and images, all available for purchase tomorrow morning. 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting!
