DIY Dreamcatcher Greetings

Hello everyone! I have something a bit different today with very little stamping. I created a dreamcatcher on a card using Paper Smooches‘ new Charms dies, Vanilla Verbage, a Flaunters die and pretty new Rainbow Sherbet patterned paper.

Paper Smooches Charms dies, Vanilla Verbage, Flaunters die

I first layered a few Flaunters die-cuts (scalloped circles) to use as a frame. I laid the stacked dies on my Rainbow Sherbet paper and using the scallops as a guide, I poked holes in a circle shape. Coming up from the back with white string threaded onto a needle (I’ll call that Hole A), I counted over six holes then inserted the needle into that hole (Hole B). I then came up in the hole next to Hole A and back down into the hole just past Hole B. continuing all the way around in this pattern until the design was complete. I secured the ends on the back with double-sided tape.

After adhering the Flaunters frame, I die-cut the feather charms from cooresponding patterned paper and stamped the simple sentiment using black ink.

It was so easy, and I think it’s cute too.  🙂  You can find all of Paper Smooches’ latest release HERE.  Thanks for visiting today!

Warmest Wishes

Hello everyone! There are only a few days left to catch the big sale at Purple Onion Designs! Through Friday, December 13 save 25% off all rubber stamps! There are sooo many sweet images and lovely sentiments, I had a hard time choosing myself!

Purple Onion Design Birch and Sweetest Season sentiment

My card today features sweet Birch (Winter Bunny) and a sentiment from Sweetest Season.

Copic markers – G29, R0000, R000, R00, R01, W00, W1, W2, W3, W4, YG63, YG67

I die-cut a strip of Post It Tape using Paper Smooches’ Borders 1 die then used that as a mask to blend the background with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink. Birch was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, carefully cut out and adhered with clear foam squares behind his head and ears. His body is adhered directly to the card front.  I stamped the sweet sentiment then added a sprinkling of tiny snowflakes. (He’s so cute!!)

Remember to grab a clear mount stamp while shopping as the rubber stamps are unmounted and the clear mount stamp is a total game changer. It can even be used with a Misti. That’s what I did! 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Warm Winter (Window) Wishes

Hello stamping friends! Today the Stamping Bella team is creating with our December Stamp of the Month, Winter Window. Through December 31, 2019, both the stamp set and coordinating dies are 25% off. Each comes with a larger window as I’ve used today as well as a smaller window.

Stamping Bella Winter Window, Oddball with a Coffee

On my card I used the larger of the two windows, paired with Oddball with a Coffee. That’s actually me. My daughter saw the card and said, “She looks just like you!”  I don’t normally wear bones in my hair. Or skulls.  But ok.  Haha.

Stamping Bella Winter Window, Oddball with a Coffee (close-up)

Copic markers – BG70, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E33, E35, E37, G28, V91, V93, V95, W00, W1, W2, YG63, YG67, YR30, YR31

The window was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers (listed above). I then stamped the Oddball, colored and cut her out then adhered over the window.

Stamping Bella Teeny Tiny Chanukah

Copic markers – BG11, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E33, E35, E37, W00, W1, W2, Y000

Yesterday I posted the above card on Instagram. Teeny Tiny Townie Chanukah (which also comes with the stamp “Happy Hanukkah”) is adorable! Sooo tiny and so cute!  I love the little kicked up leg.  🙂

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.

You can find the rest of the team’s creations (and more) on the Stamping Bella blog.

I ‘believe’ the sale is still happening at Purple Onion Designs

Hello everyone! Today I’m sharing a card and tag/gift card holder I created using Purple Onion DesignsEmmett & Emerson gnomes along with Snowy Trees.  Reminder:  All rubber stamps on sale 25% off through December 13!

Purple Onion Designs Emmett & Emerson, Snowy Trees

I adore these little guys, especially the hopping one! So cute! Along with the gnomes, I added the cutest little Candy Toppings from Queen & Company. They are perfect as tiny additions to a card or scrapbook page as well as an excellent shaker card ingredient! The candies come in Tic Tac type containers, a collection of eight colors. They’re adorable.

Purple Onion Designs Emmett & Emerson, Snowy Trees close-up

Copic markers – BG10, BG70, BG96, BG99, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E33, E35, E37, E40, E41, E42, E47, G46, R24, R29, R89, W00, W1, W2, W3; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers (listed above) and then cut out Emmett & Emerson. The sentiment was stamped from A Beautiful Day then cut into a little banner shape. Gnomes and sign were popped up on clear foam squares and completed panel was stitched to a block of Pebbles Merry Little Christmas patterned paper. I also added dots of snow using a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen.

Purple Onion Designs Emmett & Emerson (gnome)

When I stamped the gnomes for my card, I stamped a few extra so I decided to also create a little tag on a gift card holder.

Copic markers – BG96, BG99, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, G46, R24, R29, R89, W00, W1, W2, W3

I used Paper Smooches’ To From Tag, a stitched rectangle and snowflakes from Taylored Expressions, as well as a sentiment from Purple Onion Designs’ A Beautiful Day. Cute patterned paper is from Doodlebug Design’s Here Comes Santa Claus. I used X-Press It’s super sticky 1/8″ double-sided tape to hold the gift card closed.

ALL Purple Onion Designs rubber stamps are on sale at 25% through December 13!  While shopping, be sure to grab a Clear Mounting Block as the rubber stamps are unmounted and the clear block makes stamping sooo easy, even with a MISTI. It’s reusable and with proper care can last a lifetime!  It’s ingenious.  🙂

Silhouette Holiday Greetings

Hi everyone! I’m popping in today to share two more cards using Purple Onion Designs‘ latest release by new artist Julian Charlton.  The new Silhouettes line includes multiple images from which to pick and choose to create any number of scenes.  When browsing, keep in mind that through December 13, ALL rubber stamps are 25% off!  🙂 You may want to consider grabbing a clear stamp as well since the rubber stamps are unmounted. It’s the perfect solution for using unmounted stamps over and over again without adhering foam to each stamp. I highly recommend!

Purple Onion Designs Julian Charlton Silhouettes

On both cards, I created a softly blended sky background using Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink. I blended onto X-Press It Blending Card which I normally use for Copic coloring. I used it here because I love the bright white of the paper, and it is incredibly smooth which makes it perfect for blending inks as well as Copic coloring.

Side note:  ALL products from X-Press It (Blending Card, foam tape, double sided tape, decorative tape, etc.) are 20% off through the end of today, 12/1/19, 11:59 p.m. PST. (Discount applied at checkout.)

On the card above, I used Twin Trees, Frederick (fox) and the reindeer and banner from Santa’s On the Way. Paper Smooches Borders 1 die created a little snowy hill, and I used my Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen to create lightly falling snow. A red rhinestone was added as a shiny red nose.

Purple Onion Designs Julian Charlton Silhouettes

Copic markers – RV32, YG05

Here, I fussy-cut all  images then adhered to the blended background/snow border using clear foam squares behind the front tree, gift held by Cocoa, the Seasons Greetings banner and Toby‘s head. A pink Queen & Company star tops the foremost tree.

You can find the latest from Purple Onion Designs HERE25% off through 12/13.  Thanks for visiting today!

Stamping Bella Happy Holidays Teeny Tiny Townie

Today I’ve used Happy Holidays Teeny Tiny Townie bundle. After coloring with Copic markers (listed below the close-up photo), I die-cut and adhered her over a shaker window with Pebbles Merry Little Christmas paper inside.

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, E50, R24, R29, R39, W1, W2, W3; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

Also inside, I added Queen & Company’s Jewels in red and white with dark green Primary Diamonds mixed in. The little dashes were die-cut using Paper Smooches’ Embroidery Hoop dies.

Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope you’re enjoying the weekend.

All rubber stamps, including new releases, are available at 25% off through December 13! Purple Onion images are so very sweet. I’ve adored them for so long. There’s a new artist in the store too. You’ll see below.  🙂

Purple Onion Designs Birch, Snowy Trees, Sweetest Season Sentiment

First I’ve used Stacey Yacula’s winter bunny Birch. I love him so!  I also used Snowy Trees and a Sweetest Season sentiment.

Purple Onion Designs Happy Winter Forest Friends

Next I used new Happy Winter Forest Friends stamp set by new artist Julian Charlton.

Stamping Bella Black Friday Sale and Weekly Challenge

Hello everyone! I hope my American friends had a fabulous Thanksgiving!  My husband makes the best stuffing ever. I certainly loaded up on that. I’ll be walking and walking and walking to work it off.  Haha.  Sooo good.

Before getting into the weekly challenge and an extra card, there’s a big SALE in the Stamping Bella shop! 25% off everything!  Yes, ALL the things! No code needed. Just shop. Easy peasy.  🙂

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Multitasker

This week’s challenge was to use an image from the latest release. I chose Curvy Girl Multitasker. This is the exact type of multitasking I like best…coffee, comfy chair, book, kitty on my lap.  Perfect. The sentiment is from Beachabella, die-cut using the coordinating Beachabella sentiment die.

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Multitasker (close-up)

Copic markers – B21, B23, B24, B26, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, G21, G24, G28, R12, R83, R85, R89, RV11, RV32, RV91, W00, W1, W2, W3, Y21, YR23

After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloring with Copic markers (listed above), I trimmed the image, allowing the slippers to extend past the edge of the paper. Patterns are from Doodlebug Design’s Down on the Farm. Enamel hearts are also from Doodlebug.

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl on a Turkey

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E07, E08, E09, E23, E31, E35, E37, E40, E42, E43, E55, E57, W1, Y26, YR23, YR24

Also this week, I colored new Bundle Girl on a Turkey using the noline coloring method. Behind the image, I blended a bit of pattern using Paper Smooches’ Essentials stencil.  The Fall Sentiment was stamped in dark brown ink to match the (old) Papertrey Ink patterned paper.  (I have soo much patterned paper. I’m trying to use as much as I can of the older papers.)

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use any current Stamping Bella image. (No restrictions.) If you’d like, email your card to [email protected] by next Thursday to be featured on the SB blog. By doing so, you’ll also be entered to win some Bella Bucks! All challenge details can be found HERE.
