broken crayons still color (paper smooches)

Hello everyone!  I hope your weekend was pleasant. It has been some kind of hot here (as in over 100). And humid. Yuck. So terribly nasty. I can’t wait for our typical three days of fall. Haha. Virginia weather is crazy.

My card today features some fun new stamps and dies now available from Paper Smooches.  New Health Dies includes two ribbons, a bandaid, a rectangle to place atop the bandaid for added dimension, and a small heart.

The sentiment, stamped in black onto white card stock, is from new Inverted Greetings, a set of 14 sentiments and two accents, covering many different occasions.  To pop the sentiment, I used foam squares beneath.

You can find everything from Paper Smooches‘ latest release HERE.

Don’t forget that with every $60 retail order you will receive a FREE stamp set as a thank you from Paper Smooches.  There are additional PS Perks as well:

dream big little mermaid (stamping bella)

Happy Friday everyone! It’s been a very long week here. Also, it’s incredibly hot and disgusting. The humidity is one of my least favorite things about Virginia. I absolutely hate it. If I were on a tropical island with palm trees and crystal blue waters, I might feel differently. Haha.

Anyway, it’s time for another fun challenge with Stamping Bella. This week we’re using additional stamps from the Stamp of the Month categories. You can still purchase Corkboard Backdrop and Washi Tape stamps and dies at 25% off through July 31st.

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Mermaid, Under the Sea Backdrop

This week I paired Under the Sea Backdrop with Tiny Townie Mermaid.  All images were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers, and die-cut with coordinating dies where available.

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Mermaid, Under the Sea Backdrop (close-up)

Copic markers – B02, B04, B24, BG11, C1, C2, C3, C4, C17, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E29, E31, E33, E35, E37, E40, E41, E42, G40, G43, G46, R00, R01, R12, Y11, Y21, Y35, YG01, YG03, YR23

I used a bit of foam tape behind the mermaid’s head and the top of the treasure chest to add a bit of dimension. Once assembled, I added a few white Petite Posies as spilled gems from the chest.

Stamping Bella Daisy Squidgy

Copic markers – BG10, BG70, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, G28, R01, R02, W00, W0, W2, W3, W5, Y17, Y21, Y23, YG61, YG63, YG67, YR23

Also this week, I posted the above card on Instagram using super-sweet Daisy Squidgy.

You Rock (paper smooches)

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing a card using two new stencils and a new die now available from Paper Smooches. (This is my favorite of the samples I created.)

I first die-cut the You Rock die from black cardstock.  I then used the Patterns stencil to blend in the rainbow lines. I created the top line first then used the sentiment to determine placement of the bottom line. Once the blending was complete, I adhered the sentiment in place.

I added a small star using Starry stencil and added a sprinkling of Jelly Gems (links below). I really like how this one turned out.  And it was quick and easy so that’s a bonus.  🙂

Thank so much for visiting today.

Less Monday, More Summer (stamping bella)

Hello everyone. I hope you’re having a great week. This summer is flying by for me. I feel like it will be September in the blink of an eye.

I’m popping in today to share this week’s challenge with Stamping Bella. We were to use any “vintage” image, which means anything not from the latest release. Speaking of the latest release, have you seen it? If not, you can check it out here. The Tiny Townies are my favorite.  🙂

Stamping Bella The Littles Ice Cream & Lemonade Set

For my card this week, I chose to keep things simple, using The Littles Ice Cream & Lemonade Set with coordinating dies.

I first masked off an area (using Post It Tape) where I blended in sand and sky, then I used Paper Smooches’ Borders 1 to die-cut and raise the Summer Sentiment wavy strip.

Stamping Bella The Littles Ice Cream & Lemonade Set

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, E50, E51, R01, R29, R85, R89, RV32, Y18, Y21

All images were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. After die-cutting, the sentiment strip and sun were popped up on foam squares to add a bit of dimension. Once the girl and ice cream were adhered, I added a few white Petite Posies by Queen & Company.

Also, this week in Instagram I posted the following two cards.

Stamping Bella Uptown Zodiac Girl Gemini

Copic markers – BV08, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E29, E31, E35, R01, R83, R85, RV32, RV66, Y11, Y13, Y19, Y21, YG03, YG06, YG09

^Uptown Zodiac Girl Gemini with a sentiment from Marching Chicks.   I had die-cut a heart from a scrap strip of patterned paper earlier in the week and liked the negative space left behind. That’s how I got the idea to die-cut the heart here, leaving the white to show through.

Stamping Bella Honeybear Stuffies

Copic markers – BG11, E01, E02, E21, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, G20, G21, G94, G99, R01, R02, R29, R39, R59, Y19, YG03, YR000

^Honeybear Stuffies.  Before coloring the image, I blended in a bit of blue sky, then once colored, I adhered a few flower shaped Wood Toppings.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use an image from the same category as either of  the July Stamps of the Month — Corkboard Backdrop and Washi Tape— available at 25% off through 7/31. So for the challenge, use any image within the Backdrop category or Bella Exclusives found here or here.  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.

Starfish Wishes & Mermaid Kisses (Queen & Company Under the Sea Shaker Kit)

Hi everyone! Thanks for visiting today!  I’ve been playing some more with Queen & Company‘s SUPER fun Under the Sea Kit. It truly is an amazing kit!

Queen & Company Under the Sea Shaker Kit

Lots of dies, toppings, coordinating stamp set, foam/acetate, idea sheet… All you really need is adhesive, ink and card stock. But plan for time, only because it is SO addictive!

Queen & Company Under the Sea Shaker Kit

Here I’ve used the sweet mermaid again, adding an embossed panel of bubbles and a star fish behind her. (My first mermaid card can be found HERE.) I used a Kirarina Wink White Pearl glitter pen to add a bit of detail to the starfish. I love that the dies cut the faux stitching. That little bit adds so much!

Queen & Company Under the Sea Shaker Kit

Inside the mermaid’s tail, I used toppings from the kit as well as a sprinkling of tiny white stars from Jewels. Sooooo soooo cute. And sparkly! I also decided to add a bit of blush to the mermaid’s cheeks. I used Jane Davenports Birthday Suit Pastel Palette and a q-tip.

If you like the ocean or know someone who does, I highly recommend this kit for some super quick and EASY cards they are sure to love! (Refills also available!) When grabbing your kit, also pick up the brand new Sea Stone Bundle.

Queen & Company Sea Stone Bundle

They coordinate PERFECTLY! (They’re on my wish list.)

I’m sure I’ll have more from this amazing kit soon! (As I said…it’s very addictive!)   🙂

New Stamping Bella Party Dogs

All images will be available for purchase tomorrow,  July 8 right HERE. Be sure to stop by the Stamping Bella blog today to see the last of the previews and to see if you are one of the lucky seven winners of a $25 gift certificate to the SB shop!

Party Dogs

Today I have used Party Dogs. What a great image!  🙂  I especially love that tiny Chihuahua. I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.  After coloring, I added a sprinkling of Jelly Gems from Queen & Company then adhered over Birthday Bash patterned paper (also from Q&C).

Stamping Bella Party Dogs

Copic markers – B21, B23, BG09, BG11, BG13, BG15, E30, E31, E33, E35, R00, R85, RV32, W00, W1, W2, W3, W4, W5, Y38, YR31

Our family had a pug long ago so this image brought back some funny memories. He’s paired with Queen & Company’s Pretty Presents and Picture Perfect patterned papers with a few heart Wood Toppings added as embellishments. (They’re meant as shaker elements but I like to use them as embellishments as well.)

Stamping Bella Previews – New Curvy Girls and a Couple of Oddballs

Hola, everyone! I’m back today sharing more previews from Stamping Bella‘s upcoming release. Today I have four Curvy Girls and a couple of Oddballs. 🙂

All images will be available for purchase on Monday, July 8. Each day leading up to the release, you can find lots of previews on the Stamping Bella blog. If you leave a comment there on the SB blog, you’ll have a chance to win one of seven $25 gift certificates to the SB Shop! One lucky winner will be chosen from each day’s comments, so you have seven chances to win!

All images were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. I’ve included links to all supplies used at the end of this post.

Curvy Girl Loves the Beach

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Loves the Beach

Copic markers – BG13, BG15, BG18, BG34, C00, C5, C7, C9, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E27, E31, E35, E37, G28, R01, R24, R39, RV19, RV55, V05, Y21, YG03, YG05, YG09, YR23

Curvy Girl Loves the Beach is more than prepared with her tote bag, magazines and fruity drink.  The image comes with the sentiment I used here as well as a second sentiment of “Every Day is One Step Closer to Summer.” In the background, I stamped Rosie & Bernie’s Palm Tree. I added a few shells from Littles Sand Castle Set and a sprinkling of white Petite Posies from Queen & Company.

Curvy Girl Baker

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Baker

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E13, E15, E18, E21, E31, E33, E35, E41, E42, E43, G28, C1, C3, C5, R01, R29, R83, R89, V12, V15, V17, RV11, RV32, Y17, Y21, YG05, YR23

How adorable is Curvy Girl Baker? I kept the coloring rather simple, keeping most of her attire white by adding a bit of shadow and red trim. The image comes with the sentiment I used here.

Curvy Girl Loves Coffee

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Loves Coffee

Copic markers – B01, B02, B04, B05, BG10, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, E41, R01, R29, Y21, YR23

Here, I paired Curvy Girl Loves Coffee with a die-cut Cozy Coffee cup from Paper Smooches. Included with the image is the sentiment I used here.

Curvy Girl with a Message

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl with a Message

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG13, C1, C2, C3, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E35, E40, R01, RV11, RV55, RV63, V01, V05, Y21

I love the little soap box beneath Curvy Girl with a Message. There are even bubbles! She comes with the sentiment I used here. I paired her with Queen & Company’s Birthday Bash patterned paper and white Frostie embellishments.

And now for a couple of Oddballs…

Oddball Mermaid

Stamping Bella Oddball Mermaid

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG13, E000, E00, E04, E11, E13, E15, E18, E21, E35, E42, E43, Y21, YG01, YG03, YG05, YG09

Oddball Mermaid comes with a seaweed image as well as a coral image. The sentiment is from previously released Under the Sea Sentiment set. I sponged a Go With the Flow background and adhered a few different colors of Petite Posies to add a bit of sparkle.

Oddball Fish Set

Stamping Bella Oddball Fish Set

Copic markers – B00, B41, B97, B99, BG10, BG11, R12, R35, R37, RV42, W00, W1, Y08, Y17, YG03, YG05, YR14, YR16

Lastly (for today), I have Oddball Fish. The set includes four different fish and two sentiments, the one I used plus “Any Fin is Possible.”

Don’t forget to check out all of today’s previews on the Stamping Bella blog, and leave a comment there for your chance to win one of seven $25 gift certificates!

I’ll be back tomorrow with a couple more previews. Thanks so much for visiting today!
