Bundle Bunny Happy Easter

Hello everyone! How are you? What are you doing to pass your time, if you’re staying home? (I hope you are staying home, if you can.)  I’m still doing my usual work but thinking about painting rooms in the house. I’ve been out a few times for groceries, or to just drive around a bit to get out of the house. The stores and roads are eerily quiet/empty. It’s so very strange. It’s a beautiful day today though so I may spend some time on the deck.

This week the challenge with Stamping Bella was to create using an image from the lastest release. I chose Bundle Girl Bunny.

After stamping both images onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloring with Copic markers, I die-cut and adhered over Queen & Company‘s Sweet Shop patterned paper.

I stamped an Easter Sentiment then adhered a few super-sparkly white Petite Posies.

A Big Fish

Hello, hello. I hope everyone is ok, staying home as much as possible, washing your hands. These are certainly strange and scary times. I feel like I’m living in a Stephen King novel. So so scary. Please be safe.

Today I’m sharing a card I created using Stamping Bella‘s Fishing Squidgy. Isn’t he cute?

I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. The papers are discontinued. I’m still trying to plow through my ridiculous stack. The sentiment was white embossed and tiny wood hearts (also discontinued from Queen & Company) were adhered with Sheer Glue.

I also posted the two cards below on Instagram this week.

Happy Easter Bunny Wobbles

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I hope it’s a happy Friday for you! So much happening in this world right now…

Stamping Bella Row of Bunny Wobbles

This week with Stamping Bella we’re using older images. I have had an injured eye so I chose an image that required little coloring. I adore this Row of Bunny Wobbles. The set comes were several little decorated eggs as well, but I needed to keep it simple (which is fine)!

Stamping Bella Row of Bunny Wobbles (close-up)

Copic markers – BG10, BG70, C00, C1, C2, R0000, R000

After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloring with Copic markers, I cut around the bottom then matted onto Queen & Company‘s Bring on Spring patterned paper. To finish, I stamped an Easter Sentiment and adhered a sprinkling of epoxy dots in purple, orange, green, blue and pink.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use an image from the same category as the March Stamp of the Month, Squidgy in a Basket (which is 25% off through 3/31/2020). In other words, use any image from the Squidgies category.  All challenge details can be found HERE.

hello abode

Hello everyone! I’m popping in today to share a clean and simple card using Paper Smooches‘ new Abode stamp set.

Abode is a cute 3 x 4 stamp set with several images to create a little sitting area.  Also included are a couple of sentiments.

I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers, paper-piecing the chair using Rainbow Sherbet patterned paper.

You can find all of Paper Smooches’ latest release HERE.  🙂

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).

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.

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

Copic markers – BG10, BG70, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, G43, G46, N00, N0,N1, N3, V01, V12, V15, YG67

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.

Stamping Bella Bundle Girl with a Cornflower

Copic markers – B18, B21, B23, B29, B39, E000, E00, E04, E07, E08, E09, E11, E21, E29, G28, W00, W1, W2, YG63, YG67; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

Next I used Bundle Girl with a Cornflower and Spring Sentiment. I love the little bloom on the end of her hat.  🙂  After coloring, I added tiny white dots to her outfit using a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen.

Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Lolly & Her Brolly

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E33, E35, E37, R00, R20, R21, R22, R24, W1, W2, Y21, YG03, YG17, YG61, YG63, YR23

Also this week, I posted the above card on Instagram using Uptown Girl Lolly & her Brolly with a sentiment from Tiny Townie Rachel Loves the Rain. After (no line) coloring, I blended in a bit of a cloudy background and added some Picture Perfect stripes.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use any current Stamping Bella image. (No restrictions.) All challenge details can be found HERE.
