have a magical day (stamping bella)

Hello everyone! I hope you’ve had a great week so far. The weather here today is glorious! We don’t get very many nice summer days here in Virginia. It’s usually very hot and incredibly humid. But today….the door is open, the wind is blowing…ahhh… 🙂

Stamping Bella Edna Blows a Kiss

Today I’m sharing a card using Stamping Bella‘s sweet Edna Blows a Kiss. (You may recall that Edna Loves to Sweep, as used here, is the June Stamp of the Month. That image, along with the coordinating die, is 25% off through June 30.)

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, R20, R24, R29, R89, W00, W3, Y21

I sponged a bit of a blue sky background using Broken China Distress Oxide ink. Edna and clouds were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card then colored with Copic markers and die-cut with coordinating dies. Edna and one of the clouds are popped up on foam squares for a bit of added dimension.

I’ll Always Have Your Back (stamping bella)

Hello everyone! TGIF! This week the Stamping Bella team is revisting older images (anything not from the most current release).  I chose a Stuffie as it’s been ages since I’ve colored one.

Stamping Bella I'll Always Have Your Back Stuffie

I adore this elephant duo in I’ll Always Have Your Back. It’s just so sweet…the tiny one holding the bigger one’s tail.

I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Stamping Bella’s June Stamp of the Month

Hello everyone! This week the Stamping Bella team is featuring the June Stamp of the Month, Edna Loves to Sweep. The stamp set, as well as the coordinating die, are both 25% off through June 30.

Stamping Bella Edna Loves to Sweep, Tiny Townie Room Decor

I combined Edna Loves to Sweep with the lamp from Tiny Townie Room Decor. The images were both stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card then colored with Copic markers.

I placed a small foam square beneath the tea cups for an added bit of dimension. Once the stamped panel was assembled, I adhered to Queen & Company‘s Delightful Dots patterned paper and added a couple of Rubble Bubbles (also from Q&C).

Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Stephanie Loves Ballet

I also posted the above card this week on Instagram. I used Uptown Girl Stephanie Loves Ballet. (She’s so dainty!) She was also stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers and die-cut using the coordinating die.

I’m so Thankful for You (stamping bella)

Hi everyone! It’s time for another challenge with Stamping Bella. This week we were to create using any image from the latest release.

Stamping Bella Tumbleblossom Cluster

I chose pretty Tumbleblossom Cluster from the Danielle Donaldson Collection. I  stamped the image onto X-Press It Blending Card after masking the center portion.  I colored with Copic markers then stitched a border around the rectangle. I then stamped the left half of the image a second time onto scrap Blending Card, colored and cut out a few of the flowers which I extended over the rectangle border and popped up on foam squares.

Shaker Garden of Baby Peonies

Hello everyone! Today I have a fun card to share combining a cute Stamping Bella image with the fun of Queen & Company‘s shaker elements.

Stamping Bella Peony Baby in a Pot

I used super-sweet Baby Peony in a Pot (and coordinating die) with a sentiment from Mail Chick. After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloring with Copic markers, I die-cut each image then layered atop the shaker.

Stamping Bella Peony Baby in a Pot (close-up)

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E07, E08, E09, E11, E21, G21, G24, G28, R20, RV66, V01, V12

Unfortunately, the foam shaker kit, Lines, is not currently available. But inside, I placed Rubble (shaker topping), then used Simple Stripes paper over top. I cut a small slit in each pot to insert the sliver of black card stock (as a sign stick), assembled the signs and inserted each pot behind the stripes. To add a bit of dimension, the sentiment strips were each adhered using Kool Tak clear foam squares.

Thanks for stopping by today!

I chose Ava Loves to Celebrate with a sentiment from Birthday Sentiment set.

After stamping her onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloring with Copic markers, I carefully cut her out and adhered her over a few Skinny Mini Birthday Borders from Taylored Expressions. I also used my favorite Simple Stripes patterned paper from Queen & Company.

Stamping Bella’s May Stamp of the Month

Today the Stamping Bella team is featuring the May Stamp of the Month, Daisy Floral Set. I adore this little fairy hanging onto the stem. So cute.  🙂   Daisy Floral Set and the coordinating set of dies are 25% off through May 31st.Stamping Bella Daisy Flower Set All images were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. To extend the length of the die-cut flower stem, I simply stamped the bottom portion of the stem a second time, colored and die-cut. By tucking the cut ends beneath the sentiment strip (adhered with my Tiny Attacher), the stem looks longer than it actually is.

Stamping Bella Daisy Floral Set (close-up)

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG70, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, E47, G21, G24, G29, RV66, RV99, V01, V12, YR23

This is the first time I’ve used the combination of V01 with V12. It creates a lovely blend. I used RV66 and RV99 to create a bit of deeper shadow. Queen & Company‘s Delightful Dots patterned paper is a perfect match.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Lovely Tumbleblossoms (and more)

Hello everyone. I hope your week has gone well. We’re slowly getting over our sicknesses here. What a beast this has been. Ugh.

This week with Stamping Bella we’re using images from the latest release, and what a release it was! New Curvy Girls, cute Gnomes, Oddball Animals, Tiny Townies, a ballerina Uptown Girl..and brand new Danielle Donaldson Tumbleblossoms.

On my card today, I used a combination of Tumbleblossom #8 (the larger flowers) and Tumbleblossom #4 (tall thin stems).

The images were stamped onto my favorite watercolor cardstock then watercolored with Kuretake Clean Color Real Brush Watercolor Brush Pens. Once dried, I adhered over the patterned paper, laid a piece of translucent vellum over top and tied with gold cord. I included a Celebrate die-cut, cut from gold card stock. Vellum is held in place by small pieces of strategically placed double-sided tape (under cord and sentiment). I used 1/8″ tape, cut in half.

Also this week on Instagram, I posted the cards below. All are stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. Marker colors used are listed below each photo.
