Positive Vibes and a Pumpkin Pile

Hello everyone! TGIF! Thanks so much for stopping by today.

This week the Stamping Bella team is featuring images from our latest release.  I chose Oddball Hippie. 🙂

Stamping Bella Oddball Hippie, Good Vibes sentiment

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG70, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E35, G43, G48, R01, R83, R85, RV11, RV32, V12, V15, V17, W00, W1, W2, Y21, YR23

After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloring with Copic markers, I added a bit of wave stencil blending in the background then added a sprinkling of Queen & Company‘s sparkly purple Jelly Gems. Once complete, I matted the panel onto a Q&C scalloped rectangle (from Foundations Dies 4) then stapled the Good Vibes sentiment.

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, E30, E31, E33, E35, G28, W3, W5, W7, 100, Y23, YG03, YG06, YG09, YR12, YR14, YR15

Tomorrow I’ll be posting the above card on Instagram. It features Oddball Pumpkin Pile. The image is adhered over a block of Q&C’s Hocus Pocus patterned paper with black and orange Jelly Gems added for a bit of sparkle. The Happy Halloween sentiment comes along with the image.

Life is a Balance

Good morning everyone, or afternoon, whatever time of day it is for you. Once some rain clears out here, we’re in for glorious cool weather with sun and a breeze. I can’t wait. Fall is my favorite season.  🙂

Today the Stamping Bella team is creating with images from the Stuffies category. Donkey Trio Stuffies is the September Stamp (set) of the Month so now we’re sharing other images from that same category. (Donkey Trio Stuffies is currently 50% off through 9/30. It’s a four-stamp set for only $6.50!)

Stamping Bella Leo the Balancing Stuffie

Copic markers – BG10, BG70, E07, E09, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E49, E79, G24, G28, R01, R02, W00, W1, W3, W5, W7, Y26, Y28, YR04, YR15, YR18

I used my MISTI to stamp the lions onto X-Press It Blending Card then  colored with Copic markers. I also used the MISTI to stamp the sentiment in one long line rather than the four lines presented on the stamp. Patterned papers are from Queen & Company’s Happy Harvest paper pad.

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Hattie Loves Halloween

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E33, E35, G28, R01, R02, V12, V15, V17, W2, Y21, YG03, YG09, YG67, YR14, YR16; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

Also, this week I posted in Instagram the above card using Tiny Townie Hattie Loves Halloween. (The die is currently steeply discounted!)  The Fall Sentiment was stamped in white and then white embossed, stars attached and then tiny dots added using my Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen. It’s fabulous on black, isn’t it?

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Hello everyone. I hope your week has gone well. And I hope YOU are well. So far, so good here.

This week the Stamping Bella team is revisiting older images. I adore the Teeny  Tiny Townies and since I’m impatiently awaiting fall, I chose to use Teeny Tiny Townie with a Pumpkin Pie. The corresponding die is still available at a huge discount (while supplies last) so that’s a great deal to grab!

Stamping Bella Teeny Tiny Townie with a Pumpkin Pie

She’s stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. Isn’t she cute?

I had to dig deep to find my metal buttons. I haven’t used them in so very long.

Peace & Love

Hello everyone. I hope the week has been good for you. It’s time for another challenge with Stamping Bella. This week we’re featuring images from the latest release. I have two.  🙂

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Namaste/Good Vibes Sentiment

Copic markers – C000, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, YG03, YG06, YG09

My first card features Curvy Girl Namaste. I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card then colored with Copic markers. After coloring, I paper-pieced her shirt using Queen & Company‘s Flirty Florals patterned paper, masked the whole image, then used Taylored Expressions’ Circle Masking Stencil with TE’s Go With the Flow stencil adhered over that. I simply used pieces of Post It Note tape to hold the two stencils in place. I then blended in the ink swirls with TE’s blender brushes. To finish, I added a Good Vibes sentiment and a sprinkling of sparkly white Ice Flowers  from Queen & Company.

Stamping Bella Curvy Girl Loves Essential Oils/Good Vibes Sentiment

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, C00, C1, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E27, E33, E35, E37, E40, E50, E51, E53, R00, R01, R20, Y0000, Y000, Y21, YG03

Also from the latest release is Curvy Girl Loves Essential Oils. She too was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with markers. Once colored, I stamped another Good Vibes sentiment, adhered the image to a block of Flirty Florals paper and added sparkly white Petite Posies, also from Queen & Company.

Happy (almost) Fall!

Hello everyone! It’s time for another challenge with Stamping Bella! This week we’re creating with older images (anything not from the current release). Since the Littles and Little Bits are so much fun, I chose to use a couple sets from that category.

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

Stamping Bella Littles Fall Fruit and Nature

I paired the sweet girl and basket of apples from Fall Fruit with the little fox from Nature.

The background was created by masking off the borders then blending in distress ink.  I used a tiny leaf stencil to then blend in some subtle falling leaves. Once all pieces were assembled, I added some sparkly orange Gems from Queen & Company.  Lastly I stamped a Fall Sentiment.

What happens under the keg…

Hello everyone! TGIF?  Does it even matter that it’s Friday? All of my days are the same. Anyway…

I have four cards to share today, one for Stamping Bella‘s weekly challenge and three extras I posted to Instagram this week.  All were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Note: Use code PAPERCUTS15 (not case sensitive) to save 15% when checking out at X-Press It (Blending Card/adhesives) or Marker Universe.

The card above uses super cute Elves with Treats from The Littles Christmas Collection. I paired the image with a Festive Gnome sentiment and Queen & Company‘s All Bundled Up paper. I *love* the striped pink epoxy dots, also available in a set of eight colors.

Stamping Bella Oddball Bird/Friendship Sentiment

Copic markers – E31, E33, E35, E37, E40, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y38, YR04, YR27

A Little Bits Line Dance

Hello everyone. I hope your week is going well.

It’s time for another challenge with Stamping Bella! My card today is based off of the inspiration photo found at the bottom of this post.  I chose to go with the color combo (as opposed to a theme).

Stamping Bella The Littles Ice Cream & Lemonade

I used the cute girl from The Littles Ice Cream & Lemonade. After stamping the first girl onto X-Press It Blending Card, I masked her with a Post It Note then stamped the rest, moving the mask as I went along.

Note: Use code PAPERCUTS15 (not case sensitive) to save 15% when checking out at X-Press It (Blending Card/adhesives) or Marker Universe.  I know that Blending Card is currently sold out in many places. If I hear an update, I will let everyone know.

I added a few sparkly orange Jelly Gems from Queen & Company and stamped a sentiment from Celebrate and Congratulate.
