So Happy for You (Stamping Bella) and a Give-away

Hi everyone!  I’m on the Stamping Bella blog today sharing how I added dimension to lovely Uptown Girl Melanie the Modern Bride. You can find a complete step-by-step tutorial HERE.

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

Copic markers – BV000, BG11, C00, C1, C2, E00, E11, E29, E31, E35, G29, R39, R85, RV32, Y21, YG17, YR14, YR23

While I don’t want to duplicate the info found on the Stamping Bella blog, I do want to talk just a bit about one of my all-time favorite crafting products, X-Press It Foam Tape . I use lots of foam tape so I *always* ensure I have a healthy supply on hand.


X-Press It Foam Mounting Tape (green label) is available in 1/2″ and 3/4″ widths. High Tack Foam Mounting Tape (purple label) is available in 1/4″ and 1/2″. For paper crafting, I use them interchangeably, depending on the width called for on my project. They are basically the same except that High Tack Foam Mounting Tape has an extra strong adhesive which works well on glass, wood, paper, plastics and fabric. Both are acid and solvent free and ideal for scrapbooking and card making.


Three of the four products I’m giving away were used on my card today.  I have Stamping Bella’s Uptown Girl Melanie the Modern Bride stamp set, Taylored Expressions’ Dotted Lattice embossing folder, Paper Smooches’ Birthday Words dies and a roll of X-Press It Double-sided 1/4″ High Tack Foam Tape. Just leave a comment on this post by Tuesday, May 18, 11:59 p.m. ET. I will randomly choose a winner on Wednesday, May 19. The winner will be notified by email and I’ll post the winner’s name on my blog that day as well.

I hope you’ll check out my post on the Stamping Bella blog (here) to see my card in full as well as a step-by-step tutorial for multi-layer dimension.

Thanks SO much for visiting! 🙂

  20. Owliver is so cute. I love his coloring and the heart glasses he is wearing. I got to watch 2 owls via a live owl cam in Georgia that fledged last month. It was a treat watching them.
