Happy Fall

TGIF! It’s time for another challenge with Stamping Bella! This week we’re using older images. 🙂

I chose to use The Littles Playing in the Leaves and a Fall Sentiment.

Once stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, I colored with Copic markers then added a die-cut Deco Edge above (older) Doodlebug Happy Camper patterned paper.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use an image from the same category as the November Stamp of the Month (Leo the Balancing Stuffie), which means use an image from the Stuffie category.  If you’d like, email your card to [email protected] by next Thursday to be featured on the SB blog.

Coffee Loving Cardmakers/Paper Smooches Collaboration Blog Hop

Hi everyone! Today the Paper Smooches team is pairing with Coffee Loving Cardmakers to share lots of caffeinated (or decaf) inspiration! If you’d like, hop along and leave comments for the chance to win a prize!

Paper Smooches Caffeinated

I’ve used Caffeinated from Paper Smooches’ latest release. The eye and wink are from Daddy Yo 2 and the stitched heart is from Cozy Coffee die set. While there is a die for the coffee cup, the die will not allow for the glasses to be stamped over (extending past the edges) so I cut the cup out myself.

Paper Smooches Caffeinated (close-up)

Copic markers – E40, E41, E42, E43, R00, R01, R24, R29, R39, R89

Coloring was done with Copic markers (listed above) and background was blended in with Taylored Expressions’ amazing Blender Brushes.

Be sure to hop along with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers as well as the rest of the Paper Smooches team. Remember to leave comments along the way, if you wish,  for the chance to win a prize!

Bubbly Holiday Greetings

Hello everyone. I’m popping in today with a sample using Stamping Bella‘s new Curvy Girl with Bubbly and Holiday Sentiment.

Isn’t she sweet, arm extended, leg kicked out? I love her.

After coloring with Copic markers, I white embossed the sentiment, added a few sequins and adhered over a block of Pebbles Merry Little Christmas patterned paper.

Thanks for visiting today.  🙂

Are You Yeti for Christmas? (Target is.)

Yes, crazy as it is, Target now has Christmas trees and decorations next to Halloween costumes and candy. Haha. The season seems to be creeping earlier and earlier each year. I do love Christmas, and I do love to decorate a little early, mostly because it’s so much work.  I want to take the time to enjoy it all. But it isn’t even Halloween! Craziness.

Stamping Bella Yeti's Loot and Yeti Sentiments

So…even though it is not Halloween, in card maker world, it is time to create holiday cards. Today I’ve used new Yeti’s Loot and Yeti Sentiments from Stamping Bella.

Stamping Bella Yeti's Loot and Yeti Sentiments (close-up)

Copic markers – B91, B93, B95, B97, E31, E33, E37, E40, E41, G19, R24, R29, R39, R83, R85, R89, RV32, W00, W1, W2, W3, Y21, YG03, YG05, YG09, YR23; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

After coloring with Copic markers (listed above), I masked the image then blended a blue background. Once blended, I embossed some white polka dots. I decided to decorate the bag a bit by dotting a heart shape using my favorite white pen. Above and below the image block, I adhered scrap strips of Doodlebug Design’s Here Comes Santa Claus patterned paper. I love that paper pad and will be sad when it’s gone.

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.

Pumpkin Kisses, Harvest Wishes

Hello everyone! By now I’m sure you’ve seen Stamping Bella‘s new Bundle Girls, right?  They are so very cute. I just love them.  Which is your favorite?Stamping Bella Bundle Girl at the Pumpkin Patch

Today I’ve used Bundle Girl at the Pumpkin Patch. Isn’t she the sweetest? ♥ I stamped her onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers, then masked her and blended in Paper Smooches‘ Autumn stencil, one leaf at a time. I also added a little dotted pattern to the girl’s hat and coat using a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen.

Copic markers – BG70, BG72, E000, E00, E04, E07, E08, E09, E11, E21, E33, E35, E37, G40, G43, G46, Y21, YR12, YR15, YR16, YR18, YR23, W00, W1; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

I used my MISTI to stamp the Fall sentiment easily in two colors (orange and dark brown), then layered the image and sentiment over Queen & Company‘s Happy Harvest patterned paper.

Warm Wishes and Fat Pants

Hello everyone. It’s time for another challenge with Stamping Bella. This week we’re using older images. I used one of my favorite Oddballs with an oh-so-true sentiment.  🙂

Stamping Bella Thanksgiving Oddball

I chose Thanksgiving Oddball. After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloring with Copic markers (listed below the close-up photo), I die-cut her with the coordinating die and adhered over a block of Queen & C0mpany‘s Happy Harvest patterned paper. I adhered the bottom portion of the image directly onto the paper and used a two foam squares to pop up her head, adding just a bit of dimension.

Stamping Bella Thanksgiving Oddball (close-up)

Copic markers – BG11, E000, E00, E04, E07, E09, E11, E21, E30, E31, E35, E37, E40, E41, E43, G29, G43, G46, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, W9, 100, Y21, YR23

I stamped the sentiment onto a shortened tag then added a few die-cut leaves and Chocolate Pearls.

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl and her Tree

Copic markers – BG11, BG13, C00, C1, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, G29, R29, R83, R85, R89, RV32, Y21, YG03, YG05, YG09, YR23

Also, this week in Instagram I posted the above card using new Curvy Girl and her Tree, Holiday Sentiment set, Merry & Bright patterned paper and my fave little stapler, Tiny Attacher.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

No Line Coloring with a New Bundle Girl

Hi everyone! Today I decided to work on one of my favorite but most challenging techniques, no line coloring with Copic markers.

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl in a Pile of Leaves

I stamped Stamping Bella‘s new Bundle Girl in a Pile of Leaves onto X-Press It Blending Card using a light tan ink then colored with markers. I love the no line look.  I’m hoping to improve my skills with more practice.  🙂

After stamping the main portion of the image, I added extra leaves by inking only the leaf portions of the image.

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl in a Pile of Leaves (close-up)

Copic markers – BG70, BG72, BG99, E000, E00, E04, E07, E08, E09, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E35, G21, G24, G29, G85, W00, W1, W2, W3, Y21, YR09, YR18, YR23, YR68

I like the non-traditional blue in Queen & Company‘s Happy Harvest patterned paper and used that color for some of the leaves. It’s unexpected but I think it works nicely with the paper.

You can find all of Stamping Bella’s adorable new Bundle Girls here and the entire latest release here.

Stamping Bella’s October Stamp of the Month

Hello everyone! It’s hard to believe it’s Friday again already. The days are just flying by. 🙂

This week the Stamping Bella team is highlighting designs featuring the October Stamp of the Month, Libra Uptown Zodiac Girl. The stamp set, as well as the coordinating die, are both 25% off through October 31st.  You can see all of the
Zodiac girls here.

Stamping Bella Libra Uptown Zodiac Girl

Included in each Zodiac stamp set is an (amazing) image, the name of the zodiac sign and a text block describing characteristics of that sign. I used the Libra text block to create a bit of a background. Over the text background, I created a Libra constellation using stars from Starry Night Cutting Plate. (I did not measure angles so I know the distribution of stars is not perfect but I’m going to say it is close enough.)  🙂 On the left I added a block of Queen & Company‘s Birthday Bash patterned paper.

Stamping Bella Libra Uptown Zodiac Girl (close-up)

Copic markers – B16, B18, B29, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, R01, R83, R85, RV32, Y21

After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloring with Copic markers, I die-cut the image and adhered over the card front with pieces of foam squares beneath the scales. The remainder of the image is adhered directly to the card front. I die-cut “happy” from another pattern from Birthday Bash paper pad and stamped a partial sentiment from Birthday Sentiment Set.

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.”) 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.
