Look Up and Where Flowers Bloom

Hello everyone. I’m back today with this week’s challenge from Stamping Bella as well as an extra card I created this week.

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl in the Sky/Stars & Clouds Backdrop
Copic markers – B21, B23, B28, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E30, E31, Y06, Y08, Y21, YR23

For the challenge, which was to use any Bundle Girl image, I chose Bundle Girl in the Sky. I paired her with the sentiment included in the set and Stars & Clouds Backdrop. I stamped the hanging stars onto black cardstock using white ink then white embossed. I then stamped the stars onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with markers and cut out each (even the tiny ones) and adhered in place. The Bundle Girl was also cut out and popped up on foam tape. Additional dots were added using a white extra-fine tip Sharpie marker.

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lily of the Valley
Copic markers – BG10, C00, C1, C2, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E27, E29, R00, R83, R85, RV11, RV32, YG03, YG06, YG09

Also this week I used Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lily of the Valley with a Spring Sentiment. I added a few die-cut flowers and epoxy dots over Queen & Company’s pretty Flirty Florals patterned paper.

As a quick reminder, Bundle Girl Bunny is available at 50% off through March 31st.

Stamping Bella-A few more previews

Hi everyone! I’m back today to share my final four samples using new images from Stamping Bella. All new stamps will be available for purchase tomorrow, Monday March 14.

Note: All images were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Oddball Mom & Dad, Oddball Siblings and Oddball Family Pets

Stamping Bella Oddball Mom & Dad, Siblings and Family Pets
Copic markers – BG01, BG02, BG10, BG45, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E29, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E45, R83, RV11, RV32, W00, W1, W2, W4, Y21, YR23

First, I combined new Oddball Mom & Dad with Oddball Siblings and Oddball Family Pets. I love the ability to create your own family. 🙂 The sentiment is from Celebrate & Congratulate, minus the exclamation point at the end…because they don’t look all that enthusiastic. Haha. The pink die-cut balloon is popped up on a bit of foam tape to add dimension. Strings were drawn in using a Copic Multiliner. Paper is from Queen & Company’s Sweet Shop.

Oddball Leonardo

Stamping Bella Oddball Leonardo
Copic markers – B16, B19, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, BG10, BG11, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, G09, G28, R29, R39, R59, R89, W00, W1, W2, W4, W5, W7, V06, V09, Y13, Y19, YR09, YR16

Next is Oddball Leonardo. He comes along with the sentiment I used here as well as “SMILE! It’s your day!” I think he’s fabulous. I used Queen & Company’s Happy Hearts paper and a sprinkling of colorful enamel dots.

Curvy Girl Posing

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Posing
Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E27, E29, E33, E50, R83, RV11, RV32, W00, W1, W2, YG03, YG09, YR12, YR21

Here’s another lovely mom/daughter combo with Curvy Girl Posing. The sentiment is so true. White dots were added to the dresses using an extra fine tip white Sharpie marker.

Bundle Girl with Cherry Blossoms

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl with Cherry Blossoms

Last for today, I have Bundle Girl with Cherry Blossoms. I stamped the branch portion of the image across the top and added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle. Her outfit was paper-pieced using (very old) patterned paper. I seem to have misplaced my notes with the list of Copic markers used. Sorry about that.

Please stop by the Stamping Bella blog to see additional samples and images, all available for purchase tomorrow morning. 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting!

Copic markers – E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E49, G16, G19, G28, R29, R39, R59, W00, W1, W2

I used Sloth in a Stocking with a white embossed brick background. The sentiment is from Merry Slothmas.

Purple Onion Designs Holiday Sale

Hello stamping friends! Today I’m sharing a few cards I created using Purple Onion Designs images. There’s a wonderful holiday sale taking place now through December 5, 25% off rubber stamps. I hope you’ll take a peek. Lots of cuteness. 🙂

All images were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Purple Onion Designs Warmhearted Snowman
Copic markers – BG70, E30, E31, E33, E35, E40, E41, E42, E43, R000, R01, R02, R24, R29, R39, W00, W1, W2, W3, W4, W5, YR12, YR14, YR18

Here I used Warmhearted Snowman by Stacey Yacula with a sentiment from Sweetest Season. I tried my best using the “no line” coloring technique…although I’m not sure how to carry out a “no line” look with a white image. I think I need disappearing ink. Nonetheless, I think he turned out ok. White dots were added using an extra fine point white Sharpie.

Purple Onion Designs Louis and Lighted Trees
Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG13, BG70, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, G21, G24, G39, W1, W2, W3, 100, YR68

Next I used adorable Louis with Lighted Trees and a Sweetest Season sentiment. Once colored, I added Glossy Accents over the tree decorations so they are shiny and add a bit of dimension. Flurries created with the same white Sharpie.

Purple Onion Designs Kaily & Nohl, Dusting of Snow, Home for the Holidays Sentiment
Copic markers – BG10, C4, C5, C6, C7, R21, Y21, YR23

Lastly, I’ve used Kaily & Nohl, ringing in the new year with a Home for the Holidays sentiment. I also used Dusting of Snow in the background with Diamond Stickles added to the center of each flake and throughout the ground.

I hope you’ll check out the holiday sale! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by today.

Stamping Bella Thanksgiving Oddball

With Thanksgiving right around the corner here in the US, I chose Thanksgiving Oddball. I adore this sentiment. (And you can believe I will be wearing my fat pants next Thursday! Haha.) The image comes with a second sentiment as well that reads “Let our lives be filled with both thanks and giving.”

Stamping Bella Thanksgiving Oddball (close-up)
