Stamping Bella Previews-Last Day

Hello, hello! Today is the last day to share with you Stamping Bella‘s new release previews. All images will be available for purchase tomorrow, November 18!

All of my stamping was done on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Teeny Tiny Townie with a Gift

Stamping Bella Teeny Tiny Townie with a Gift
Copic markers – BG11, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E33, E35, G09, G24, R29, R59, W00, W1, W2, Y21, YG05, YG09

I adore Teeny Tiny Townie with a Gift. I love that she’s standing on her tippy toes. And she’s just so very tiny. 🙂 Note that on the actual stamp, the tag is left blank. I stamped “for you” using part of the sentiment from Tiny Townie Ellie the Elf stamp set.

The Gnome and the Flamingo

Stamping Bella The Gnome and the Flamingo
Copic markers – BG70, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E27, E31, E33, E35, E47, R12, R29, R32, R39, R59, R83, R85, RV11, RV32, W00, W1, W2, W7, Y21, YR23

How cute is Gnome and the Flamingo?! It cracks me up. I lightly blended a swirl (wave) background then added some tiny die-cut snowflakes.

MINI Oddball on a Stack of Gifts

Stamping Bella MINI Oddball on a Stack of Gifts
Copic markers – BG11, C00, C1, C2, C5, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, G28, R29, R59, R83, R85, Y21, YG03, YG05, YG09

I think MINI Oddball on a Stack of Gifts is over the holiday season. Her expression… haha. I added a tag with an Oddball Festive sentiment. The set has the perfect mix of snarky sayings to go along with the Oddballs (or anywhere you might want a bit of sarcasm).

MINI Oddball with One Scoop

Stamping Bella MINI Oddball with One Scoop
Copic markers – BG11, C00, C1, C2, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E25, E29, E79, R83, R85, RV11, RV32

Lastly, I have MINI Oddball with One Scoop who is not having a good day. After coloring, I paired her with Queen & Company‘s Sweet Shop patterned and solid papers and adhered a few little “candy toppings” on the ground.

Be sure to pop over to the Stamping Bella blog to see even more as I have had just a wee bit of the release to share. There’s lots more to see! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by today!

First I combined new Oddball Christmas Parents with Oddball Christmas Kids. (There’s also an Oddball Christmas Pets set.) After coloring, I added some faux sparkle to Mom’s dress using a white Sharpie. At the bottom I stamped an Oddball Festive Sentiment.

There are new MINI Oddballs in this release! So cute. 🙂 Here I colored Mini Snowflake Oddball then added a snowflake border with some pink Petite Posies from Queen & Company. Pretty paper is Flirty Florals, also from Q&C.

The Gnome and the Mistletoe

Be sure to head over to the Stamping Bella blog to see (many) more upcoming release images and samples. You won’t be disappointed! I’ll be back tomorrow with more!

Before I close, here’s my card from last week’s Bellarific Friday challenge which was to use a “vintage” image.

I used Uptown Girl Wren and her Wreath. Her dress and wreath bow were paper-pieced with shading added using gray markers.

Have a great day!

Furry & Bright

Hello everyone! I’m popping in tonight to share a card using another of Purple Onion Designs‘ latest images from the new Winter/Holiday release. 🙂

Purple Onion Designs Three Dog Holiday/Furry Friends Sentiment

Three Dog Holiday is one of the super-cute images from Shari Bresicani‘s “It’s Snowing Cats and Dogs.” Isn’t it super cute? I love it.

Copic markers – BG13, E31, E33, E35, E37, E40, E41, E42, E43, E71, E74, E77, E79, G21, G94, G99, R29, R59, W00, W1, W2, YG03

After stamping the image onto X-Press It Blending Card, I colored with Copic markers then cut it out to adhere over a blended sky background. I added tiny rhinestones to the tree and then flurries using a white Sharpie. The sentiment is from new Furry Friends sentiment set.

There are quite a few dog and cat images in the release, and they’re available as a set or individually. You can find them all HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping today!

Never Stop Dreaming

Hello everyone! Happy Friday to you! This week the Stamping Bella team is creating with images from the latest release.

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Astronauts and Starry Sky Backdrop

I chose new Tiny Townie Astronauts. I love that the set comes with four different little astronaut images. I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. I used a fine tip pen to add the dotted heart design on the flag and a white Sharpie to add dots to the space suits.

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Astronauts and Starry Sky Backdrop
Copic markers – B000, B69, B91, B93, B95, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E29, E31, E35, R01, Y21

To create the background, I first dotted the black card stock with a powder tool then stamped Starry Sky Backdrop using white pigment ink. I covered the panel with white detail embossing powder then heat embossed. Once assembled, I added a sprinkling of tiny clear rhinestone gems onto the background.

Stamping Bella Astrology Chart

This week I also posted in Instagram the above card using new Astrology Chart. The set comes with the chart, the Tiny Townie girl and the sentiment. Note: I used my MISTI to rearrange the breaking of the sentiment to better fit the space on my card.

Copic markers – BG70, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E29, E40, E79, G40, G43, G46, R01, W1, W2, Y000, Y21, Y38, YR23, YR31

I paper-pieced the dress then added a row of rhinestones around the inner circle of the chart. To add a bit of dimension, I placed a foam square behind the girl’s head while attaching the lower part of her body directly onto the card front.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

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

Have a great weekend!

Is It Halloween Yet?

Hello crafty friends. 🙂 This week the Stamping Bella team is creating with images from the Stamp of the Month category, Bundle Girls.

Stamping Bella Grim Reaper Bundle Girl

I chose Grim Reaper Bundle Girl. (I still think she’s cute, even dressed as a reaper.) After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card, I colored with Copic markers (listed below the close-up photo) and layered over Taylored Expressions’ Birch Tree Cutting Plate. Dotted pattern was added to the clothing using a lavender Kirarina Wink glitter pen.

Stamping Bella Grim Reaper Bundle Girl
CopIc markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E25, E27, E29, R01, R21, V09, V15, V17; Kirarina Wink Lavender glitter pen

The birch tree and star papers are from Queen & Company‘s Hocus Pocus paper pad. Once assembled I adhered some black and purple jelly gems to add a bit of sparkle. The sentiment is from Stamping Bella’s Oddball Frankenstein.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

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

You Say Witch…

Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a nice week. The weather here is glorious and I’m soaking it all in…while it’s here! 🙂 This week the Stamping Bella team is creating with “vintage” images, otherwise known as “any not in the new release category.”

Stamping Bella Oddball Witch
Copic markers – BG11, BV17, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, V12, V15, V17, W5, W7, 100, Y21, YG03, YR16

I chose to use Oddball Witch. She was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. I used my MISTI to break up the sentiment, changing it to four lines instead of two. To add a bit of dimension, I placed foam tape beneath the witch’s hat and head while adhering her boots and broom directly to the card base. I used a strip of (old) Doodlebug Design Halloween Parade patterned paper and adhered a few Queen & Company purple epoxy dots.

Stamping Bella Christmas Camper
Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG13, BV02, BV13, C00, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E50, E53, G21, G94, G99, R29, R39, R89

Also this week, I colored new Christmas Camper. Once colored, I added “snow” by dotting a white Sharpie over the tree, wreath and ground.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Stamping Bella September Stamp of the Month

Hello everyone. This week the Stamping Bella team is creating with the September Stamp of the Month, Bundle Girl on a Swing. Now through September 30, 2021 this super sweet image with sentiment is 50% off.

After stamping the image onto X-Press It Blending Card, I inked the end of the branch and stamped three additional times to create more of the tree. I colored with Copic markers, added dots with a fine tip white Sharpie marker and then used my MISTI to break up the sentiment and align the words/spacing. (I use the MISTI to stamp my base images also. It makes my stamping life soooo much easier.) Striped paper is from Queen & Company‘s Happy Harvest paper pad.

This week I also created the two cards below:

Stamping Bella Tiny Townies Under an Umbrella
Copic markers – BG10, BG70, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E29, E31, E35, E37, E79, R01, R81, R83, R85, W00, W1, W2, W3, Y21

This week we’re creating with images from the latest release. I have a couple. 🙂 First, I used Tiny Townie Loves Tea. I paper-pieced her dress and tea cup/saucer then added shading with my Copic markers. I think the sentiment is cute. 🙂

Stamping Bella New Release – Curvy Girl Previews

Hello, everyone! It’s Day 2 of Stamping Bella new release previews! Today I’m sharing four new Curvy Girls. 🙂

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

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Vet
Copic markers – B21, B23, B24, C3, C5, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, E40, E41, R01, R29, Y21, YR23

Next I have Curvy Girl Nurse. I love the little tray. Before adhering the sentiment strip, I die-cut and colored a Little Bits Stethoscope, then adhered all over Simple Stripes patterned paper. I also added a tiny enamel heart to her lanyard.

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Mermaid
Copic markers – B0000, BG0000, BG10, BG70, C00, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E35, E37, G09, R83, R85, RV0000, RV000, RV00, RV11, Y17, Y21, YG05, YR16
