I Believe in You

Hello everyone. Happy Friday. I hope you’re doing well.  You may recall that Stamping Bella‘s Rosie & Bernie in Hawaii (featured HERE) is the August Stamp of the Month, available at 50% off through, 8/31. This week the design team is featuring other images from that same category.

Stamping Bella Meet Rosie & Bernie

I chose to use Meet Rosie & Bernie. The image was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic markers and then dots added using a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen.

Copic markers – BG0000, C00, C0, C1, C2, R00, R83, RV0000, RV11, Y0000; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

Rainbow Stripes and heart are from The Stamp Market. Once assembled, I stamped a Unicorn Sentiment.

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.

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

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.

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E07, E08, E09, E11, E21, E29, E31, E33, E35, E37, E41, E42, E43, G24, G29, G85, R24, R29, R89, W4, Y21, YR18, YR23

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.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use an image from the same category as the August Stamp of the Month, Rosey & Bernie in Hawaii (which is 50% off through 8/31/2020). In other words, use any image from the Rosie & Bernie category.  All challenge details can be found HERE.

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.

This week’s challenge with Stamping Bella was to create using images from the latest release. I chose Two Gnomes and a Keg. I don’t drink beer but I love the sentiment.

Stamping Bella Two Gnomes and a Keg

Copic markers – BG72, BG75, BG78, E000, E00, E04, E07, E08, E09, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E35, E50, E51, E53, E71, E74, E77, E79, G24, G40, G43, R01, R02, W00, W1, W2, W3, W4, W7

I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment in black and teal. The pretty plaid paper is from Queen & Company‘s Vintage Truck-Sweater Weather paper pack.

Stamping Bella Elves with Treats/Festive Gnome Sentiment set

Copic markers – BG11, BG13, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E35, N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, N9, R39, RV11, RV17, RV19, RV55, RV69, Y17

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 Gnome in a Tree

Copic markers – B93, B95, B97, B99, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E50, E53, E55, E79, G21, R14, R32, RV42, W0, W1, W2, W3, YG63, YG97, YG99, 0.3 Brown Copic Multiliner

Next I used Gnome in a Tree. The image comes with the sentiment I used above. I added in a few leafy branches from Taylored Expressions’ Bloomers Greenery, adhered over Queen & Company‘s Vintage Truck-Sweater Weather patterned paper and lastly, I added a few faux cross-stitches.

Stamping Bella Oddball Bird/Friendship Sentiment

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

Lastly, I used a cute Oddball Bird with a Friendship Sentiment. I adore the new Friendship Sentiment Set. Isn’t that font pretty? After coloring, I adhered to a block of Queen & Company‘s Fruit Basket patterned paper.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

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.

Stamping Bella The Littles Ice Cream & Lemonade (close-up)

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, E40, E41, G09, RV14, RV17, RV42, Y06, Y21, YG00, YG01, YR00, YR12, YR16, YR65

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

Staming Bella The Littles Little Bits Fairy and Little Bits Floral sets

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, E000, E00, E04, E09, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E30, E31, E35, E51, E53, E55, RV11, RV32, W1, Y21, YG61, YG63, YR14, YR18, YR23

Also this week, I shared the above card on Instagram using The Littles Little Bits Fairy and Little Bits Floral sets with a Chocolate sentiment. After assembling the pieces, I added a few white Petite Posies. (They’re even more sparkly than the Jelly Gems. So pretty.)

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Wish I Had a Hammock

Hello everyone. Another Friday has arrived which means it’s time for another Stamping Bella challenge.  You may recall that Flowery Gnome is 50% off this month. Today the team is sharing samples using other images from the Gnomes category.

Stamping Bella Gnome in a Hammock

I chose Gnome in a Hammock, and oh how I wish I had a hammock…and the time to lounge in a hammock. Someday.  🙂

Stamping Bella Gnome in a Hammock (close-up)

The Friends We Meet Along the Way

Hello everyone.  Happy Friday.  🙂  I hope your week has gone well.

Today the Stamping Bella team is revisiting older images. I chose one of my favorite Tiny Townie Garden Girls to also practice my no line coloring. Speaking of no line coloring, has anyone tried Inkon3 Fadeout No Line Coloring Detail Ink? I saw it for the first time today. I’m thinking about giving it a whirl.

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lily of the Valley

Copic markers – B0000, B000, B00, B01, B12, C00, C1, C2, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E31, E35, E37, G09, G28, R01, Y21, YG05, YG06, YG09; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

I adore Garden Girl Lily of the Valley. All of the Garden Girls are cute, but this one I think is my favorite. I stamped in a light tan ink, colored with Copic markers and then added tiny white dots with my Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen. The Friendship sentiment is from the latest release.  Once complete, I adhered to a panel of Under the Sea patterned paper.

Stamping Bella Beer Gnomes

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E07, E08, E09, E11, E21, E23, E25, E27, E29, E31, E42, E43, E50, E51, E53, W00, W1, W2, W3, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99

Also this week, I posted the above card in Instagram. These little Beer Gnomes crack me up. I’m not a fan of beer, but I like them just the same. After coloring, I adhered over Petite Patterns patterned paper and cross-stitched the sentiment strip along the one side.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use an image from the same category as the July Stamp of the Month, Flowery Gnome (which is 50% off through 7/31/2020). In other words, use any image from the Gnomes category.  All challenge details can be found HERE.

Best Wishes From the Whole Herd

Hello crafty friends.  🙂  I hope your week is going well. Today I’m sharing three cards I created using images or sentiments from Stamping Bella‘s latest release. All are stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Stamping Bella Oddball Farm Animals/Down on the Farm Sentiment set

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG70, R000, R00, R01, W00, W1, W2, W3, W4, Y15, Y17, Y18, YG01, YG03, YG06

Here I’ve used the cow from cute Oddball Farm Animals with a sentiment from Down on the Farm.  After stamping/masking and coloring, I added a die-cut flower to the ears and adhered a yellow enamel dot to each center. To add a bit more interest, I tied a gingham bow around the exposed tail.

Stamping Bella Snapshots I Heart You/I Miss Your Face Sentiment set

Copic markers – E000, E00, E04, E21, E31, E34, E35, E37, E47, E51, E53, E57, E77, E79, R01, R02, W00, W1, W2, Y21

Next, I used Uptown Girl Snapshots-I Heart You, Snapshots Minis in the background and a sentiment from new I Miss Your Face sentiment set.

Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Tiffany Loves to Text/I Miss Your Face Sentiment set

Copic markers -B04, B28, B29, BG11, BG13, BG15, C1, C2, C3, C5, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E30, E31, E33, E34, E35, E37, E49, G28, N7, N9, R39, R83, R85, RV02, RV04, RV06, RV11, Y17, YG03, YG09, YR23, Y31; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

Live Every Day Like it’s Your Birthday

Hello everyone! You may recall that Stamping Bella‘s Stamp of the Month, Edna Loves the Ocean, is 50% off through June 30th. This week we’re featuring other images from the Edna the Fairy Godmother collection.

Stamping Bella Edna with a Cupcake on Top

I chose Edna with a Cupcake on Top. She’s one of my faves.  🙂  I did not use the coordinating die but it is still available in the SB shop at a steep discount as all dies are being discontinued.

Stamping Bella Edna with a Cupcake on Top (close-up)

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E35, E37, E47, E50, E51, R29, R39, W00, W1

After stamping onto X-Press It Blending Card, I stamped the bottom of the cupcake again onto patterned paper. I cut out the gingham print then adhered over the image, adding shadow with my markers. As a finishing touch, I added a sprinkling of Queen & Company‘s red and blue enamel dots. (Patterned paper is very old.)

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

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