sending love

Hello everyone! This week the Stamping Bella team is creating with “vintage” images, or any not listed in the latest release. I love the little Bundle Girls so I chose Bundle Girl with a Heart Trail.

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl with a Heart Trail

After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card, I colored with Copic markers and added a sprinkling of tiny white die-cut hearts.

This week the Stamping Bella team is creating with the January Stamp of the Month, Curvy Girl Loves Jam. She is available at 50% off through January 31st. The sentiment is included with the image.

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Loves Jam

Here I paired the image with older Prima Julie Nutting “Blush” patterned paper. It’s perfect with the tiny strawberries.

Have Yourself a Lazy Little Christmas

Hello everyone! I hope all is well with you. Still a bit frantic here but I see time off at the end of the tunnel. 🙂

Today the Stamping Bella team is using images from the Sloth or Bella Exclusive Images category. Sloth Ornament is available at 50% off through December 31st.

Stamping Bella Sloth in a Stocking
Copic markers – E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E49, G16, G19, G28, R29, R39, R59, W00, W1, W2

I used Sloth in a Stocking with a white embossed brick background. The sentiment is from Merry Slothmas.

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl with a Tree
Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG13, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E33, E35, E37, G28, R29, R39, R59, W00, W1, Y21, YR23, YG63, YG67

This week I also colored Bundle Girl with a Tree. I paired her with a Holiday Sentiment and Queen & Company’s North Pole Party patterned paper. I used an extra fine tip white Sharpie to create the flurries.

The Stamping Bella team is taking a break until the first of the year but I may pop in to share a few things before then. I wish everyone a happy holiday season! As always, thank you so much for stopping by! ♥

Seasons Greetings

Hello, everyone. TGIF! I hope you’re doing well. I’ve been very busy. Between work and getting ready for Christmas, I’ve had very little free time. That being said, I am making time to create with new and old Stamping Bella images. I love them so much and it’s a nice, relaxing activity for me. 🙂

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

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl Winter Friends
Copic markers – BG70, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, G28, R29, R39, R59, R81, R83, W00, W1, W2, W3, YG17, YG63, YG67

In my opinion, Bundle Girl Winter Friends is one of the sweetest images in the Stamping Bella store. The image comes with the sentiment “We will be friends through every season.” I used Season’s Greetings from Holiday Sentiment set. Tiny dots were added using an extra-fine tip white Sharpie.

Stamping Bella Ellie the Elf
Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E33, E35, G28, R01, R02, R83, R85, RV11, RV32, W00, W1, W2, Y21, YG03, YG05, YR23

This week I also decided to test my Copic no-line coloring skills on Tiny Townie Ellie the Elf. I know some folks say no-line coloring is no more difficult than coloring a lined image but I beg to differ. It takes me a LOT longer…but I do love the result. I used Stars and Clouds Backdrop and another Holiday Sentiment.

Stamping Bella Teeny Tiny Townie with a Fruitcake
Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E30, E33, E35, E37, E49, G28, R29, R39, R59, W00, W1, W2, W3, YG63, YG67

Lastly for this week, I also colored new Teeny Tiny Townie with a Fruitcake. I paper-pieced her dress and used another Holiday Sentiment.

Next Week’s Challenge

Use any current image from the Stamp of the Month category, Sloths, or use a Stamping Bella Exclusive Image. As a reminder, Sloth Ornament is available at 50% off through October 31, 2021. All challenge details can be found HERE.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Eat, Sleep & Be Merry

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! Today the Stamping Bella team is creating with our December Stamp of the Month, Sloth Ornament. He’s 50% off through December 31st.

Stamping Bella Sloth Ornament
Copic markers – BG11, BG70, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E49, G28, G40, G43, G46, R01, R29, R39, R59, W00, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, 100, Y17, Y23, YR23

Isn’t he cute? He doesn’t come with a sentiment but Merry Slothmas is whole set of cute and quirky sentiments to go with all of the sloth holiday images. Patterned paper and tiny rhinestones are from Queen & Company.

Stamping Bella Oddball Flamingos
Copic markers – R83, R85, RV11, RV32, W00, W1, YR04, YR27

Also this week, I colored one of two Oddball Flamingos. I think we all need a reminder once in a while to stand tall. 🙂

Patterned paper is Sweet as Sugar from Reverse Confetti.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Purple Onion Designs Holiday Sale

Hello stamping friends! Today I’m sharing a few cards I created using Purple Onion Designs images. There’s a wonderful holiday sale taking place now through December 5, 25% off rubber stamps. I hope you’ll take a peek. Lots of cuteness. 🙂

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

Purple Onion Designs Warmhearted Snowman
Copic markers – BG70, E30, E31, E33, E35, E40, E41, E42, E43, R000, R01, R02, R24, R29, R39, W00, W1, W2, W3, W4, W5, YR12, YR14, YR18

Here I used Warmhearted Snowman by Stacey Yacula with a sentiment from Sweetest Season. I tried my best using the “no line” coloring technique…although I’m not sure how to carry out a “no line” look with a white image. I think I need disappearing ink. Nonetheless, I think he turned out ok. White dots were added using an extra fine point white Sharpie.

Purple Onion Designs Louis and Lighted Trees
Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG13, BG70, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, G21, G24, G39, W1, W2, W3, 100, YR68

Next I used adorable Louis with Lighted Trees and a Sweetest Season sentiment. Once colored, I added Glossy Accents over the tree decorations so they are shiny and add a bit of dimension. Flurries created with the same white Sharpie.

Purple Onion Designs Kaily & Nohl, Dusting of Snow, Home for the Holidays Sentiment
Copic markers – BG10, C4, C5, C6, C7, R21, Y21, YR23

Lastly, I’ve used Kaily & Nohl, ringing in the new year with a Home for the Holidays sentiment. I also used Dusting of Snow in the background with Diamond Stickles added to the center of each flake and throughout the ground.

I hope you’ll check out the holiday sale! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by today.

Just One Ho

Hello everyone. I hope my US friends had a nice Thanksgiving. My house was full of family for the first time in oh so long. It was very nice to see everyone. 🙂

Stamping Bella MINI Oddball Christmas Pudding

This week the Stamping Bella team is creating with images from the latest release. I chose sweet MINI Oddball Christmas Pudding. I love her expression. (It’s how I felt at the end of last night’s visit. Haha.)

Stamping Bella MINI Oddball Christmas Pudding (close-up)
Copic markers – BG10, BG11, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E40, E41, E42, E49, E50, E51, G21, G24, G28, G46, R37, R39, R59, W00, W1, W2

After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloring with Copic markers, I cut around the tip of the one leaf then die-cut the rectangle, with the tip on the top edge of the die so it would not cut. Partial sentiment is from Festive Oddball Sentiment Set.

NOTE: Enjoy 25% off your entire online order with code THANKFUL25 at checkout on XPRESSIT.US. This offer ends 11/29 at 11:59 pm PST.

Stamping Bella Thanksgiving Oddball

With Thanksgiving right around the corner here in the US, I chose Thanksgiving Oddball. I adore this sentiment. (And you can believe I will be wearing my fat pants next Thursday! Haha.) The image comes with a second sentiment as well that reads “Let our lives be filled with both thanks and giving.”

Stamping Bella Thanksgiving Oddball (close-up)
Copic markers – BG11, E000, E00, E04, E08, E09, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E29, E31, E33, E35, E49, G28, W00, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, Y21, YG63, YG67, YR16, YR18, YR23

Stamping Bella Previews-Last Day

Hello, hello! Today is the last day to share with you Stamping Bella‘s new release previews. All images will be available for purchase tomorrow, November 18!

All of my stamping was done on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Teeny Tiny Townie with a Gift

Copic markers – BG11, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E33, E35, G09, G24, R29, R59, W00, W1, W2, Y21, YG05, YG09

I adore Teeny Tiny Townie with a Gift. I love that she’s standing on her tippy toes. And she’s just so very tiny. 🙂 Note that on the actual stamp, the tag is left blank. I stamped “for you” using part of the sentiment from Tiny Townie Ellie the Elf stamp set.

The Gnome and the Flamingo

Copic markers – BG70, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E27, E31, E33, E35, E47, R12, R29, R32, R39, R59, R83, R85, RV11, RV32, W00, W1, W2, W7, Y21, YR23

How cute is Gnome and the Flamingo?! It cracks me up. I lightly blended a swirl (wave) background then added some tiny die-cut snowflakes.

MINI Oddball on a Stack of Gifts

I think MINI Oddball on a Stack of Gifts is over the holiday season. Her expression… haha. I added a tag with an Oddball Festive sentiment. The set has the perfect mix of snarky sayings to go along with the Oddballs (or anywhere you might want a bit of sarcasm).

MINI Oddball with One Scoop

Stamping Bella MINI Oddball with One Scoop
Copic markers – BG11, C00, C1, C2, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E25, E29, E79, R83, R85, RV11, RV32

Lastly, I have MINI Oddball with One Scoop who is not having a good day. After coloring, I paired her with Queen & Company‘s Sweet Shop patterned and solid papers and adhered a few little “candy toppings” on the ground.

Be sure to pop over to the Stamping Bella blog to see even more as I have had just a wee bit of the release to share. There’s lots more to see! 🙂
