Merriest Wishes

Hello everyone.  I hope you are all well. This week the Stamping Bella team is creating with older, a.k.a. “vintage” images. I have two.  🙂

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Pamela the Poinsettia

First I used Tiny Townie Pamela the Poinsettia with a Holiday Sentiment. I’ve always loved the white/pink poinsettias so I colored mine very lightly with pale pinks.

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Pamela the Poinsettia (close-up)

Copic markers – C00, C1, C2, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E27, E29, G28, R000, R00, R01, R12, YG03, YG09, YR04

After coloring the image, I decided to do a bit of popping up with some of the flower petals. I stamped the skirt portion a second time, colored and then cut out the pieces I wanted to use. I only applied adhesive to the top portion, leaving the bottom edges of the petals to bend up a bit. I also added some dots of Diamond Stickles for a little sparkle.

Teeny Tiny Townie Chanukah

Copic markers – B21, B23, B24, B26, C00, C1, C2, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E27, E29, E33, E35, E47, YR12, YR31

The Gift of Your Friendship and Black Friday Deals

Hello everyone! I hope my US friends had a nice Thanksgiving day. I know it was different for most, if not all, but hopefully it was still nice. (I ate too much. haha.)

This week the Stamping Bella team is creating with the latest release. I couldn’t decide so I chose three. 🙂 All were stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

First, BLACK FRIDAY DEALS:

EVERYTHING in the Stamping Bella shop is 30% off all weekend long. What? Everything! Sale price is reflected on each individal item. No code necessary.

X-Press It Blending Card as well as other products in the X-Press It store are 25% off through 11/30/2020 at 11:59 pm PST. Use code THANKS25 at checkout!

Stamping Bella Glenda Loves Gifts

My first card uses Uptown Girl Glenda Loves Gifts. I added a bit of paper-piecing on the packages and applied a bit of shading with gray markers.

Stamping Bella Ophelia & Odelia Love Ornaments

Copic markers – BG11, BG13, BG18, BG32, BG34, C00, C1, C2, C3, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E29, E49, E51, R01, R02, R59, R83, R89, RV11, RV32, YG03, YG06, YG09

Next, I have Uptown Girls Ophelia & Odelia Love Ornaments. This set includes a sentiment and additional image which I did not use.  The sentiment here is from Long Distance Christmas sentiment set. Again, I paper-pieced the package then added a couple strands of holly border. The tiny rhinestones were cut from a very old rhinestone flourish I have in my stash. I’m determined to use it one way or another.  🙂

Stamping Bella Mochi Ornament Girl

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E33, E35, E37, R01, R02, R24, R29, R39, R59, R89, W1, W2

Lastly, I have Mochi Ornament Girl. Isn’t she lovely? It’s fun to color a larger image. I left the ornaments white like snowballs and added white dots using my Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen.

Teeny Tiny Holiday Greetings

Hello everyone. I hope your week has been going well. Same old thing here. Nothing exciting, but I’m ok with that.

This week the Stamping Bella team is featuring older images. I chose two of the cutest, tiniest, wee little Teeny Tiny Townies.

Stamping Bella Teeny Tiny Townie Gingerbread House

First, I used Teeny Tiny Townie Gingerbread House. After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloring with markers, I cut out and adhered over a block of Queen & Company‘s All Bundled Up patterned paper.

I stamped a Long Distance Christmas sentiment and added white dots to the centers of some of the pink snowflakes.

Stamping Bella Happy Holidays Teeny Tiny Townie

Earlier this week, I posted in Instagram the above card using Happy Holidays Teeny Tiny Townie. Isn’t she sweet?  She’s sooo tiny!   She too was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Stamping Bella Happy Holidays Teeny Tiny Townie (close-up)

Wreaths and Knitting

Hello everyone! It’s time for another challenge with Stamping Bella! This week we’re using images from the latest release. With so many amazing choices, I could only narrow it down to two.  🙂

Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Wren and Her Wreath

Copic markers – C00, C1, C2, C3, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, G18, G19, G28, R83, RV11, RV32, RV34, Y21; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

First I used super cute Uptown Girl Wren and Her Wreath.  She’s so dainty. I love her.

I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers then paper-pieced her dress. Once the dress was adhered in place, I added a bit of shading with gray markers. I also added tiny white dots to the wreath using my Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen. Lastly, I stamped a Long Distance Christmas Sentiment.

Stamping Bella Knitting Penguin

Copic markers – BG15, R00, R14, R29, R59, W00, W1, W2, W5, W7, YG03, YG06, YG09, YR04, YR15, YR18

I adore images that feature knitting. I can make a scarf, but that’s about the extent of my experience. I’d like to sometime try a cable pattern but that sounds a bit scary.  Haha. 

This is my favorite of the new penguin images, Knitting Penguin. The image was colored with markers, adhered to some older Doodlebug paper and then the sentiment was stamped in one line using my MISTI to help with alignment.

Stamping Bella Thanksgiving Oddball

Copic markers – BG11, E000, E00, E04, E07, E09, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, G07, G09, W1, W3, W4, W7, W9, 100, Y17, Y21, Y38, YR04

Also this week, I created the above card using Thanksgiving Oddball. She comes with the sentiment I used here plus a second fun and quirky sentiment, “Get Your Fat Pants Ready.” Haha. I love that one.  Patterned paper is from Queen & Company‘s Happy Harvest paper pad.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

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

Have a great weekend!
