Queen & Company’s Under the Sea Shaker Kit

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing a couple cards I created using Queen & Company‘s super cute Under the Sea Shaker Kit.  It’s definitely at the top of my list of favorite kits. Included are 16 dies, a 6″ x 6″ paper pad, 4″ x 6″ stamp set, 27 foam and acetate shakers and 13 toppings. Most of the ingredients are also available as refills HERE.

How cute is that mermaid?  I especially like the little detail of the slit in her hair into which her head/body is inserted.

All of the toppings I added to the shaker are included in the kit. As an extra, I added those beautiful Sea Stone embellishments. I *love* them. They’re available in a bundle of eight colors (ALL lovely) or individually. I used purple.  I also added a sprinkling of Jelly Gems. The tiny white dots on the shell were added using my Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen.

Next, I used the cute crab. To cut the wavy lines I used one of the four dies from Curvy Borders.

All toppings are included in the kit except I did add a few clear Diamonds.

What happens under the keg…

Hello everyone! TGIF?  Does it even matter that it’s Friday? All of my days are the same. Anyway…

I have four cards to share today, one for Stamping Bella‘s weekly challenge and three extras I posted to Instagram this week.  All were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Note: Use code PAPERCUTS15 (not case sensitive) to save 15% when checking out at X-Press It (Blending Card/adhesives) or Marker Universe.

This week’s challenge with Stamping Bella was to create using images from the latest release. I chose Two Gnomes and a Keg. I don’t drink beer but I love the sentiment.

Stamping Bella Two Gnomes and a Keg

Copic markers – BG72, BG75, BG78, E000, E00, E04, E07, E08, E09, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E35, E50, E51, E53, E71, E74, E77, E79, G24, G40, G43, R01, R02, W00, W1, W2, W3, W4, W7

I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment in black and teal. The pretty plaid paper is from Queen & Company‘s Vintage Truck-Sweater Weather paper pack.

Stamping Bella Elves with Treats/Festive Gnome Sentiment set

Copic markers – BG11, BG13, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E35, N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, N9, R39, RV11, RV17, RV19, RV55, RV69, Y17

The card above uses super cute Elves with Treats from The Littles Christmas Collection. I paired the image with a Festive Gnome sentiment and Queen & Company‘s All Bundled Up paper. I *love* the striped pink epoxy dots, also available in a set of eight colors.

Stamping Bella Gnome in a Tree

Copic markers – B93, B95, B97, B99, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E50, E53, E55, E79, G21, R14, R32, RV42, W0, W1, W2, W3, YG63, YG97, YG99, 0.3 Brown Copic Multiliner

Next I used Gnome in a Tree. The image comes with the sentiment I used above. I added in a few leafy branches from Taylored Expressions’ Bloomers Greenery, adhered over Queen & Company‘s Vintage Truck-Sweater Weather patterned paper and lastly, I added a few faux cross-stitches.

Stamping Bella Oddball Bird/Friendship Sentiment

Copic markers – E31, E33, E35, E37, E40, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y38, YR04, YR27

Lastly, I used a cute Oddball Bird with a Friendship Sentiment. I adore the new Friendship Sentiment Set. Isn’t that font pretty? After coloring, I adhered to a block of Queen & Company‘s Fruit Basket patterned paper.

A Little Bits Line Dance

Hello everyone. I hope your week is going well.

It’s time for another challenge with Stamping Bella! My card today is based off of the inspiration photo found at the bottom of this post.  I chose to go with the color combo (as opposed to a theme).

Stamping Bella The Littles Ice Cream & Lemonade

I used the cute girl from The Littles Ice Cream & Lemonade. After stamping the first girl onto X-Press It Blending Card, I masked her with a Post It Note then stamped the rest, moving the mask as I went along.

Note: Use code PAPERCUTS15 (not case sensitive) to save 15% when checking out at X-Press It (Blending Card/adhesives) or Marker Universe.  I know that Blending Card is currently sold out in many places. If I hear an update, I will let everyone know.

Stamping Bella The Littles Ice Cream & Lemonade (close-up)

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, E40, E41, G09, RV14, RV17, RV42, Y06, Y21, YG00, YG01, YR00, YR12, YR16, YR65

I added a few sparkly orange Jelly Gems from Queen & Company and stamped a sentiment from Celebrate and Congratulate.

Staming Bella The Littles Little Bits Fairy and Little Bits Floral sets

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, E000, E00, E04, E09, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E30, E31, E35, E51, E53, E55, RV11, RV32, W1, Y21, YG61, YG63, YR14, YR18, YR23

Also this week, I shared the above card on Instagram using The Littles Little Bits Fairy and Little Bits Floral sets with a Chocolate sentiment. After assembling the pieces, I added a few white Petite Posies. (They’re even more sparkly than the Jelly Gems. So pretty.)

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use an image from the latest release.  All challenge details can be found HERE.

Wish I Had a Hammock

Hello everyone. Another Friday has arrived which means it’s time for another Stamping Bella challenge.  You may recall that Flowery Gnome is 50% off this month. Today the team is sharing samples using other images from the Gnomes category.

Stamping Bella Gnome in a Hammock

I chose Gnome in a Hammock, and oh how I wish I had a hammock…and the time to lounge in a hammock. Someday.  🙂

Stamping Bella Gnome in a Hammock (close-up)

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E29, E31, E33, E35, R20, R21, R24, W00, W1, W2, W3, Y21, YG63, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, YR23

After coloring with markers, I paper-pieced the hammock then added shading to the patterned paper using warm gray.

The Friends We Meet Along the Way

Hello everyone.  Happy Friday.  🙂  I hope your week has gone well.

Today the Stamping Bella team is revisiting older images. I chose one of my favorite Tiny Townie Garden Girls to also practice my no line coloring. Speaking of no line coloring, has anyone tried Inkon3 Fadeout No Line Coloring Detail Ink? I saw it for the first time today. I’m thinking about giving it a whirl.

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lily of the Valley

Copic markers – B0000, B000, B00, B01, B12, C00, C1, C2, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, G09, G28, R01, Y21, YG05, YG06, YG09; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

I adore Garden Girl Lily of the Valley. All of the Garden Girls are cute, but this one I think is my favorite. I stamped in a light tan ink, colored with Copic markers and then added tiny white dots with my Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen. The Friendship sentiment is from the latest release.  Once complete, I adhered to a panel of Under the Sea patterned paper.

Stamping Bella Beer Gnomes

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E07, E08, E09, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E29, E31, E42, E43, E50, E51, E53, W00, W1, W2, W3, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99

Also this week, I posted the above card in Instagram. These little Beer Gnomes crack me up. I’m not a fan of beer, but I like them just the same. After coloring, I adhered over Petite Patterns patterned paper and cross-stitched the sentiment strip along the one side.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use an image from the same category as the July Stamp of the Month, Flowery Gnome (which is 50% off through 7/31/2020). In other words, use any image from the Gnomes category.  All challenge details can be found HERE.

Hello everyone! I hope you’re staying healthy and safe. I’m in no hurry to go anywhere.

Lottie’s Gang Birthday Squad (Purple Onion Designs)

Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing a card using a really sweet stamp set from Purple Onion Designs, Lottie’s Gang-Birthday Squad by Julian Charlton. I think the image is so different and so cute.  The set includes six sentiments so that’s very nice too!

Purple Onion Designs Lottie's Gang Birthday Squad

The card was for my daughter’s best friend who requested one of my card’s this year. I love her. 

Purple Onion Designs Lottie's Gang Birthday Squad (close-up)

Copic markers – B23, B25, B28, B29, BG10, BG70, E000, E00, E04, E07, E08, E09, E15, E30, E31, E35, E37, E51, E53, R24, R29, R39, R83, R85, RV00, RV11, RV32, W00, W1, W2, Y21

I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card then colored with Copic markers. I created a tiny hair tie using a leaf die. Dots on the package were added using a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen. And I used more old patterned paper.

Best Wishes From the Whole Herd

Hello crafty friends.  🙂  I hope your week is going well. Today I’m sharing three cards I created using images or sentiments from Stamping Bella‘s latest release. All are stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Stamping Bella Oddball Farm Animals/Down on the Farm Sentiment set

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG70, R000, R00, R01, W00, W1, W2, W3, W4, Y15, Y17, Y18, YG01, YG03, YG06

Here I’ve used the cow from cute Oddball Farm Animals with a sentiment from Down on the Farm.  After stamping/masking and coloring, I added a die-cut flower to the ears and adhered a yellow enamel dot to each center. To add a bit more interest, I tied a gingham bow around the exposed tail.

Stamping Bella Snapshots I Heart You/I Miss Your Face Sentiment set

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E21, E31, E34, E35, E37, E47, E51, E53, E57, E77, E79, R01, R02, W00, W1, W2, Y21

Next, I used Uptown Girl Snapshots-I Heart You, Snapshots Minis in the background and a sentiment from new I Miss Your Face sentiment set.

Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Tiffany Loves to Text/I Miss Your Face Sentiment set

Copic markers -B04, B28, B29, BG11, BG13, BG15, C1, C2, C3, C5, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E34, E35, E37, E49, G28, N7, N9, R39, R83, R85, RV02, RV04, RV06, RV11, Y17, YG03, YG09, YR23, Y31; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

Live Every Day Like it’s Your Birthday

Hello everyone! You may recall that Stamping Bella‘s Stamp of the Month, Edna Loves the Ocean, is 50% off through June 30th. This week we’re featuring other images from the Edna the Fairy Godmother collection.

Stamping Bella Edna with a Cupcake on Top

I chose Edna with a Cupcake on Top. She’s one of my faves.  🙂  I did not use the coordinating die but it is still available in the SB shop at a steep discount as all dies are being discontinued.

Stamping Bella Edna with a Cupcake on Top (close-up)

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E35, E37, E47, E50, E51, R29, R39, W00, W1

After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card, I stamped the bottom of the cupcake again onto patterned paper. I cut out the gingham print then adhered over the image, adding shadow with my markers. As a finishing touch, I added a sprinkling of Queen & Company‘s red and blue enamel dots. (Patterned paper is very old.)

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use an image from the latest release.  All challenge details can be found HERE.

Queen & Company’s Donut Shaker Kit

Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing three shaped cards I created using Queen & Company‘s Donut Shaker Kit. I adore Q&C’s kits as they’re so easy and quick to put together. And who doesn’t like receiving a fun shaker card in the mail?

The kit includes Donut shaker dies, Donut outline die, 2×3 stamp set with very cute sentiments, four foam/acetate shakers, four shaped cardstock bases and four envelopes. Die measures approximately 5×5. Shaker elements are sold separately and a Shaped Donut Foam Refill kit is coming soon.

On my first card, I used the donut kit with pretty Happy Hearts patterned paper and Sweet Shop Solids.

After filling with buttons, Pops, Princess Toppings and sequins, I wrapped trim around a die-cut heart and secured over the acetate with Sheer Glue.

On my second card, a chocolate donut, I used Sweet Shop Solids. Isn’t the sentiment cute? So the card/donut wouldn’t look too plain when standing upright, I adhered a variety of epoxy dots over the acetate (outside of the shaker).

Inside, I placed buttons and Princess Cut Toppings.

Lastly, I used my favorite sentiment from the set with Sweet Shop patterned paper and Sweet Shop Solids.

Inside, I placed pink Flower Buttons with a sprinkling of sequins and (currently unavailable) candy toppings. Before adhering the inner circle outline, I tied the tag-shaped sentiment with pink trim.

All of Queen & Company‘s shaker kits are loads of fun and come together quickly and easily. I highly recommend them.  🙂
