Embracing the Blues

Hello again everyone! This week the Stamping Bella team and fans had the challenge of creating with a wintery, vibrant blue photo as inspiration.

I decided to tackle the blue and forego the winter.

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Brianna the Butterfly

I used Tiny Townie Brianna the Butterfly with a Butterfly Sentiment. Isn’t she pretty?

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Brianna the Butterfly (close-up)

After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloring with Copic markers, I added a bit of detail to the wings and dress using a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen.

Karin Brushmarkers — Two Thumbs Up!

Hello, hello! I finally had the chance to play with a “new to me” watercolor medium, Karin Brushmarkers. I LOVE them! I don’t have a lot of watercolor experience, but these markers are so very easy to use!

The ink is very vibrant. I scribbled just the smallest bit onto an acrylic block then dipped in a watercolor brush. The markers can be used directly on paper and then diluted with water, or even used tip to tip to get a blend. I’ve not yet tried that. The markers are similar to Zig Real Brush Markers but the tips are firm. I like them so much better! I can’t stress the vibrancy!

I stamped Purple Onion DesignsBirch onto Arches 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper using Taylored Expressions Oreo ink, then used Henna, Lilac, Cerise and Black Karin Brushmarkers. The markers can be purchased individually or in sets. I have the Basic and Flowers sets. (There is also a Skin Tone set on my wish list!) As for brushes, I used a Silver Black Velvet #4 round brush. 

Once the image was stamped, painted and dried, I added a Sweetest Season sentiment and die-cut a stitched frame.

If you’re also new to watercolor, I highly recommend Karin Brushmarkers. Try just a few to start! I think they’re fabulous!

i ♥ u (paper smooches)

Hello everyone! I have a simple card to share today using the new Hearts stencil and I Heart You dies from Paper Smooches.

Paper Smooches Hearts stencil/I Heart You dies

I used Post It tape to hold my card front in place. I blended the hearts in two shades of pink ink, blending some without reinking the blender brush.

Paper Smooches Hearts stencil/I Heart You dies (close-up)

I die-cut i ♥ u several times from black card stock, adhered all together for a thicker/bolder appearance and adhered a matted strip of Half Moon patterned paper beneath. Super easy.  🙂

Today I’m sharing two new lines and one Oddball.  🙂  All are stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Mochi Donut Girl is my favorite. And I don’t even like donuts.   Haha.  I love her peeking from behind the pile. With the image I used a corresponding Mochi Girl Sentiment. (Patterned paper is old. I have sooo much!)

Under the Weather Mochi

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG13, E000, E00, E01, E07, E08, E09, E11, E21, E33, E35, E37, E41, E43, G28, G40, G43, G46, G94, R01, R02, R24, R27, R29, R56, R59, RV11, RV32, W0, W3, Y21, YG03, YG05, YG09

After coloring Mochi Plant Girl, I added a lined/dotted background using a black 0.05 Multiliner and added a bit of decoration to the blue pot using a Dandelion Kirarina Wink glitter pen. Also, another Mochi Girl Sentiment.

Now let’s meet Edgar & Molly. I adore the vintage look. Here are my clean and simple cards. On each I used Edgar & Molly Sentiment Set.

Edgar & Molly Balloon and Bench sets

Stamping Bella Molly & Edgar Balloon and Bench sets

Copic markers – E000, E00, E11, E21, E31, E33, G21, G94, G99, N5, N9, R20, RV32, RV95, W0, W00, YG63

Copic markers – BG11, C00, C1, E000, E00, E11, E21, E23, E47, E55, E57, N5, N9, Y21, YR23

This little girl is my fave from the Edgar & Molly line. I paper-pieced her dress as well as the kite. (Girl from Clock set, Balloon from Balloon set, and Farm Birds.)

Edgar & Molly Mushroom and Clock Sets

Here I combined the boy from Mushroom Set with the dog from Clock set.

And last but not least…

Oddball Cupid

Stamping Bella Oddball Cupid

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E42, E43, E44, E47, E49, R29, R83, R89, RV11, RV32, W1, W3

I **LOVE** Oddball Cupid and the sentiment!  Please note that I hand cut her using scissors and a kraft knife as I don’t yet have the cooresponding die. I used Queen & Company‘s Happy Hearts patterned paper (from Love Monster pompom kit).

As a reminder, all images and stamps will be available for purchase tomorrow, Monday, 1/20. Good luck narrowing down your list!!

Stamping Bella – New Release Previews 1

Hello, hello! I am sooo excited to be sharing samples today of new images coming to Stamping Bella on Monday, January 20. I also have this week’s challenge to use a Teeny Tiny Townie image. That will be at the end. I have eleven new release samples (eep!). Let’s start with Bundle Girl hearts, Easter, then flowers and then a new Edna. All use new sentiments too! 🙂

A couple notes:

  • I fussy cut any images you might see cut out here as I don’t yet have dies so the cuts may be a little different than those made by the dies.
  • All images were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. Markers used are listed below each photo.
  • You can see all of the DT samples for today on the Stamping Bella blog. Please check it out, and leave a comment there for the chance to win a $25 gift card to the SB shop.  🙂

Winter Greetings

Hello! I hope your weekend was nice. The weather here was lovely, like spring. January 11 and we had the air conditioner on. Insane. I think we head back to winter this weekened.

Paper Smooches Winter Greetings and Scene Builder stencil

Today I’m sharing a card using new Paper Smooches. I first created a background with Scene Builder stencil, adding a few white embossed snowflakes after the blending. It was fun and so very easy.  🙂

Paper Smooches Winter Greetings and Scene Builder stencil (close-up)

Copic markers – BG11, BG13, E30, E31, E33, Y17, YR14

I then stamped the cute owl from new Winter Greetings stamp set onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers and die-cut using the cooresponding Winter Greetings Icons die. To add a bit of dimension, the owl was popped up on Kool Tak clear foam squares. As a finishing touch, I adhered a tiny white Queen & Company pompom. (I used Sheer Glue to adhere. It’s my fave for attaching acetate or fiber.)

As a side note, have you seen Queen & Company‘s pom pom dispenser? It’s a little gumball machine! SO cute!

Sending Love

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! It’s time for another challenge with Stamping Bella. This week we created using “vintage” images, or images not included in the latest release.

Stamping Bella’s January Stamp of the Month – Call Me Teeny Tiny Townie

Hello everyone! I hope you had a nice holiday. I was away for almost two weeks and have been trying to get back into the swing of things. I feel like it’s been far longer since I’ve stamped or colored.

Stamping Bella Call Me Teeny Tiny Townie

Today the Stamping Bella team is sharing cards using the January Stamp of the Month, Call Me Teeny Tiny Townie. She’s soooo sweet.  🙂 The set, which includes the image and two sentiments, is 25% off through January 31.

Stamping Bella Call Me Teeny Tiny Townie (close-up)

Copic markers – BG13, BG15, BG18, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, W00, W1, W2, W4, Y21

I used Taylored Expressions’ Rectangle Masking Stencil with Folk Art Tulip stencil to create the background. I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers (listed above) and cut out the image, then stamped the image onto the stenciled background in order to get the phone cord in position. After cutting out the two image pieces, I adhered each over the stenciled/stamped background. I then adhered a heart enamel shape.

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.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Happy Holidays

Hi everyone! Just want to send a quick Happy Holidays wish to all!

Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Savannah Has a Star

Today I used one of my all-time fave Stamping Bella Uptown Girl images, Savannah Has a Star. I think I’ve colored her every year since her birth (lol).

Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Savannah Has a Star (close-up)

Copic markers – BG10, BG70, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E33, E35, E37, G21, G94, G99, R01, R29, R89, Y18, YG03, YR65

After coloring with Copic markers (listed above), I adhered a handful of “hanging” snowflakes, each with a Queen & Company Gem in the center. I love using the Gems on cards. They’re the perfect tiny size and add lots of sparkle! (They’re pretty in shaker cards too.)

Thanks SO much for visiting my blog this year. I appreciate each and every view, read or comment. I hope you’re having a wonderful holiday season!  ♥♥♥
