Delicious Birthday

Hello everyone. It’s time for another challenge with Stamping Bella. This week we’re using images from the latest release. I did a little switcheroo with the sentiment that comes along with Bundle Girl & Penguin Bake a Cake. 🙂

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl & Penguin Bake a Cake

I first stamped the image onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers and paper-pieced the outfit using Queen & Company‘s pretty new Garden Party patterned paper. (I’ll be sharing shaker cards very soon using their new Garden Party shaker kit. It’s soooo cute!)

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl & Penguin Bake a Cake (close-up)

Copic markers – B18, B26, B28, B29, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E25, E27, E55, E59, R24, R29, R59, R83, R85, RV11, RV32, W00, W1, W2, W5, W7, 110

In the background, I embossed the top portion of  my card using Taylored Expressions’ Graphic Birthday Impressions embossing folder. Using my MISTI, I stamped the first and second lines of the sentiment, then replaced “Christmas” with “Birthday” from Curvy Girl Eats Cake.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use any current Stamping Bella image. (No restrictions.) All challenge details can be found HERE.

Have a great weekend!

It’s All Fun and Games Until…

Good morning everyone. I hope all is well with you. Sending warm thoughts to my friends in Texas. What a horrible situation.  We had a lot of ice/freezing rain here but nothing like what Texas is experiencing.

This week the Stamping Bella team is creating with images from the category of our Stamp of the Month, Oddballs. Oddball Cupid is remains available at 50% off through 2/28.

Stamping Bella Oddball Cupid

After stamping Oddball Queen of Hearts onto X-Press It Blending Card, I colored with Copic markers and stamped an Alice in Wonderland sentiment. Isn’t she great? I love that sentiment too. So funny. 🙂

I rounded the corners then matted onto Queen & Company‘s Happy Hearts patterned paper.

Potted Babies

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! It’s a cold, cold Friday here with snow/ice. Yuck.

This week the Stamping Bella team is revisiting older images. I chose two potted babies. They’re sweet as can be. 🙂

Stamping Bella Hydrangea Baby in a Pot

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, E000, E00, E04, E07, E08, E09, E11, E21, G21, R20, V12, V15, V17, W00, W1, W2, YG63, YG67, YG97, YG99

First I colored Hydrangea Baby in a Pot. Once colored, I masked the baby then added a blue blended background. I also added some white dots in with the flowers. Around the baby, I dotted Diamond Stickles (which unfortunately barely shows in the photo).

Stamping Bella Cactus Baby in a Pot

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E33, E35, R20, Y21, YG63, YG67, YG97, YG99, YR16, YR23

Next I’ve colored Cactus Baby in a Pot. I added Kirarina Wink White Pearl dots to the cactus and a little design to the pot using Kirarina Wink Lime Green and Dandelion markers.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use any current image from the Stamp of the Month category, Oddballs. As a reminder, Oddball Cupid is available at 50% off through February 28, 2021. All challenge details can be found HERE.

Stamping Bella February Stamp of the Month

Hello, hello! I hope you’ve had a great week. It’s been pretty quiet here which is A-Ok with me!

This week the Stamping Bella team is featuring the February Stamp of the Month, Oddball Cupid, available at 50% off through February 28. For just $4.50US you can purchase the image and cute sentiment together.

Stamping Bella Oddball Cupid

Copic markers – BG11, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E33, E35, E37, R12, R17, R22, R29, R59, W00, W1, W2, W3

After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloring with Copic markers, I adhered her over Reverse Confetti’s Sweet as Sugar patterned paper.

I also created two more cards this week using Curvy Girls.  🙂

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl with a Jar of Hearts

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, R59, R83, R85, RV11, W00, W1, Y000, Y21, YG03, YG09, YR23

Here I placed Curvy Girl with a Jar of Hearts in front of a window of Taylored Expressions’ Floating Hearts. Sentiment is from Mail Chick.  Dots were added to the dress using a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen.

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Eats Cake

Copic markers – BG75, BG78, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E332, E35, E37, E49, E50, E51, G21, G94, G99, R85, RV11, RV32, W1, W2, W3, Y21

Lastly, I used Curvy Girl Eats Cake and a Birthday Sentiment. I paper-pieced the dress then stamped and colored the cake a second time so I could cut out and pop up on foam tape. With the help of my MISTI, I broke apart the sentiment to fit better in the open space.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use a vintage Stamping Bella image, meaning one NOT from the current/most recent release. (If the image is not listed in the “what’s new” category, then it’s considered “vintage.”) All challenge details can be found HERE.

Ups and Downs

Hello again! I’m back today to share two cards using Stamping Bella. One is from the most recent release and another is an older image.

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl on a Swing

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E33, E35, G94, W00, W1, W2, YG06, YG09

First I’ve used super sweet Bundle Girl on a Swing. So so very cute, I think! I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, paper-piecing her hat and dress using (older) Echo Park Have Faith patterned paper. I colored with Copic markers, adding shadows with grays.  I adhered several flowers along the bottom and added Duck Egg Blue Nuvo Crystal Drops as flower centers. I truly love those drops and wish I had each and every color. They’re fabulous! Why did I wait so long to try them??

Stamping Bella Victoria & Juliette's Night Out

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E25, E29, E31, E35, E37, G43, G46, R56, R59, R83, R85, RV11, W00, W1, W2, W3, Y21

Next I’ve colored Uptown Girls Victoria & Juliette’s Night Out.  I added a flower die-cut from Queen & Company‘s Foundations 2 and stitched a button in the center.

Fruity Fun

Hello everyone! I’ve been going through some things, lots of things, in my stamp room and in doing so, I decided it was time to revisit Queen & Company‘s Fruit Stand kit. Included are foam and acetate pieces for 18 shaker elements, a fruit themed paper pad, dies, toppings and a themed stamp set. All you need is base card stock and adhesive!

I adore the cute pineapple! I think it’s my favorite from the kit. Inside, I placed pineapple slices and a sprinkling of yellow Jelly Gems. Super sparkly Diamonds would like nice too!

In each of the flower centers I adhered a tiny pineapple slice.  The die used to cut the sentiment strip is from Foundations 4.

Next I created a quick and easy peachy thanks card.

Inside, I placed Pearls, Pops and Diamonds. As a finishing touch I added some white dots to the patterned papers.

You can find the Fruit Stand kit, refills, and a handful of other fruit themed items HERE.  So much fun!!

Thanks for stopping by today!
