Thanks, friend

Hello everyone! Since it’s basically spring here…in February…I thought it would be a great day to share a quick and easy card I created using Paper SmoochesGarden Greetings stamp set.

Paper Smooches Garden Greetings

I first created a blended frame/background using Taylored Expressions’ Square Masking Stencil and Strawberry Milkshake/Cupcake inks. I stamped the image onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers and then die-cut using Garden Greetings Icons dies.

Paper Smooches Garden Greetings (close-up)

Copic markers – R81, R83, R85, YG03, YG06, YG17

I die-cut three additional image shapes then stacked all to create a thicker image. ‘Friend’ was stamped from Just a Note, then I used Ranger’s Multi Medium Matte to adhere to the center of the square. A strip of Rainbow Sherbet patterned paper was slipped behind the square before adhering to my card front.

I created the above card last month but forgot to post so I’m slipping it in here. It was SUPER easy to create! First, matt a block of Half Moon patterned paper onto black card stock and adhere to card front.

Die-cut I Heart You outline die from black and red card stock. Also die-cut the base shape three times from white. Adhere the base shapes together then use the Multi Medium Matte fine tip to adhere the black frame. I then used We R Memory Keepers’ QuickStik to adhere the small pieces of red heart into each proper space.

The QuickStik is one of my *must have* tools. I’ve tried the tacky pencils and other pick-up tools but for me, none work as well as QuickStik. The tacky material lasts a LONG time and the opposite ends holds a removable pointy tip that helps with unreleasing the tiny pieces and holding each in place. 

Once assembled, adhere the shape over the patterned paper. So quick and easy!

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Smile Sparkle Shine

Hello everyone. Happy Friday! This week the challenge with Stamping Bella was to use any image from the Stamp of the Month category, Curvy Girls. Curvy Girl with a Jar of Hearts and the coordinating die are each 25% off through February 29.

I chose to use new Curvy Girl with a Diamond.

After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloring with Copic markers, I die-cut the image with cooresponding Curvy Girl with a Diamond die.

As a background, I die-cut several rounded squares from Queen & Company‘s Foundations 5 die set then added some super sparkly purple Goosebumps (coming soon to the Q&C store).

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

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

Window Shaker Fun

Hello again! I’m back today to share two cards I created using Queen & Company‘s ultra-fun Windows Shaped Shaker kit and several new products coming soon to the Q&C shop.

The Windows Shaped Shaker kit includes 11 dies, pre-cut foam and acetate and a versatile stamp set. The pre-cut foam and acetate make the shakers so very easy to assemble!

I first used the dome window with brand new Bitty Buttons and a sprinkling of Pastel Diamonds inside.

The sentiment was stamped onto a die-cut shape from Foundations 2. In the center of each flower I adhered new Ice Flowers.

Next, I created a happy hello window with flower box.

Inside the shaker, I placed red, white and blue Pops.  The sentiment was stamped onto another of the shapes from Foundations 2.

Thanks so much for visiting today. I will be back soon with more new goodies from Queen & Company!

Winter Greetings

Hello everyone. I hope your week has gotten off to a good start. I’m getting over some nasty sickness. Happy to be feeling more normal today. I’m not 100% but definately better.

My card today uses Winter Greetings with Winter Greetings Icons dies and Huge Snowflakes dies from Paper Smooches. Isn’t the snowman cute?

I did a bit of paper piecing with Rainbow Sherbet patterned paper. I also pieced tiny parts of the sentiment. Overall, it’s a quick and easy card.  🙂

Thanks for stopping by today!

A Hug with a Fold In It

Happy Friday everyone, and Happy Valentine’s Day! I believe we are finally going to see the sun today! It’s been so rainy and dreary. I’m not sure we’ve had two days in a row with sun for quite some time. Ugh. It’s so depressing.

Today I colored one of my favorite gnomes from Stamping Bella. I especially love this image, not only because it’s cute and I adore the sentiment, but because it’s a little bigger than many of the other SB images so I find it a wee bit easier to color.

Stamping Bella Flowery Gnome

Copic markers – BV29, C00, C1, C2, E000, E00, E07, E08, E09, E11, E21, E23, E27, E55, E57, G28, V22, V25, V28, Y17, YG03, YG06, YG17, YR14, YR31

Flowery Gnome was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. I die-cut the image into a circle shape, cut around the bottom of the image so he could sit “atop” the yellow strip then adhered to Simple Stripes paper. The adorable sentiment was white embossed. Check out those NEW polka dot epoxy dots from Queen & Company (currently on sale)! I love them!

They come in a pack of eight colors. Also available are stripes, candy swirl and, of course, plain. Love, love, love! You can see them all in one place HERE.

Stamping Bella Teeny Tiny Townie Love

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG13, E000, E00, E04, E11, E18, E21, E25, E29, E31, E35, E37, R83, R85, RV11, Y21, YR14, YR18, YR31

Also this week, I colored super cute new Teeny Tiny Love. “You” is from new Love Sentiment Set.

Stamping Bella Oddball Little Bo Peep

Copic markers – B21, B23, B24, B26, BG10, C00, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, E000, E00, E04, E11, E18, E21, E31, E35, E37, Y21

And, I colored Oddball Little Bo Peep, framed by Simple Stripes patterned paper.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use an image from the same category as the February Stamp of the Month, Curvy Girl Jar of Hearts, 25% off through 1/31/2020. In other words, use any image from the Curvy Girl category.  All challenge details can be found HERE.

Southwest Birthday Wishes

Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a great start to your week! Today I’m sharing a card I created for someone special in Arizona.  I love all things southwestern so it’s always a treat to create anything in this theme.

I first created a blended background using Taylored Expressions’ Circle Masking Stencil and a cloud border die. To do so, I taped my card in place then taped the circle stencil over top. I die-cut a cloud border strip (the one I used is discontinued but these cloud border stencils would be a perfect substitute), then  starting at the top of the circle, I blended blue ink against the cloud border edge. I shifted the cloud border down, moving it to the left and right each time, applying less ink as I moved toward the bottom of the circle.

After die-cutting Paper SmoochesCactus from (discontinued) patterned paper, I blended a bit of ink around the edges then adhered it over the circle using clear foam squares. The balloons were adhered with foam squares as well. Lastly, I stamped a bit of confetti from Birthday Bash stamp set and stamped ‘happy birthday’ from Sentiment Sampler. Pretty quick and easy.  🙂

Thanks for stopping by! I hope your day is sunny. We have another four days of clouds and rain here. Yuck.

Stamping Bella’s February Stamp of the Month

Hello everyone! It’s time to share Stamping Bella’s February Stamp of the Month. Through February 29, Curvy Girl with a Jar of Hearts is 25% off. The coordinating die is 25% off as well!

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl with a Jar of Hearts

I stamped the image onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers (listed below the close-up photo). I copied the coloring through the jar from Sue Hastead (@tanglemousecards on Instagram). She colored this image a while back and I thought it was brilliant to lightly color the dress to show through the jar.

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl with a Jar of Hearts (close-up)

Copic markers – BG10, BG13, BG32, BG70, C00, C1, C2, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E25, E29, G28, R0000, R81, R83, R85, RV11, YG03, YG17

I stamped a Love Sentiment, blended a few hearts and then stitched the panel to a block of Queen & Company’s Picture Perfect patterned paper.

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.

Foxgloves and Cornflowers

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I honestly don’t know how it’s Friday already. Can time slow down, please? Just a little?

This week the challenge with Stamping Bella was to use images from the latest release. Yay! You know how much I adore Bundle Girls. I chose two for today. Both were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl with a Foxglove

First up is Bundle Girl with a Foxglove. She’s soooo sweet. I paired her with a Love Sentiment and a bit of Queen & Company‘s Simple Stripes patterned paper.

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?
