All Boxed Up (stamping bella)

Hello! It’s Friday…again!  I am so very busy right now, each week seems like a day. It’s C-R-A-Z-Y!

Since it’s the first Friday of the month, it’s time to reveal a new Stamp of the Month with Stamping Bella. Through June 30, All Boxed Up from the Bella 2.0 collection is available at 20% off.

Stamping Bella All Boxed Up (Bella 2.0 Collection)

I stamped my Bella onto X-Press It Blending Card then colored the girl and tissue paper with Copic markers. I wanted a bit of pattern on the box and bow so I paper-pieced those portions with Doodlebug Design’s Hello patterned paper.

Copic markers – BG09, BG57, C00, C1, C2, C3, C5, C6, E00, E01, E11, E30, E31, E35, E47, R02, R21, R81, R83, R85, RV17, Y21

Once the patterned pieces were cut out and adhered over the stamped image, i added shadow using cool gray Copics.


Use a vintage Stamping Bella image, meaning one NOT from the current/most recent release. (If the image is not listed in the “what’s new” category, then it’s considered “vintage.”) If you’d like, email your card to emily@stampingbella.com by next Thursday to be featured on the SB blog. By doing so, you’ll also be entered to win some Bella Bucks! All challenge details can be found HERE.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Ric Rac Rainbows and Halo Buds (Queen & Company)

Hello everyoneToday I’m sharing two cards using some of Queen & Company‘s fab new embellishments! There are sooo many fun choices. Today I’ve used some new fibers and new shiny bling.  : )


Using the Rainbow Foam Front Shaker kit as inspiration, I created a Ric Rac rainbow using pink, green, blue and purple. At the end of the rainbow is a cloud shaker from Spring Shaped Shaker Kit.

I adhered the ric rac with super sticky double-sided tape, trimmed the left edges and marked the cloud ends lightly with a pencil, using the cloud shape as a guide. I trimmed the ends with sharp scissors then adhered the cloud foam shape.


After filling the cloud with Sequins and Jewels, I stamped a Spring clear stamp sentiment in the corner.  Once assembled, I adhered the completed panel to bright pink dotted paper from new Birthday Bash paper pad.

Supplies: Pink, Green, Blue and Purple Ric Rac, Birthday Bash paper pad, Spring Shaped Shaker kit, Spring clear stamps, Sequins, Jewels

Next, I created a pattern of small flower buds using new Purple Halos and tiny die-cut leaves.


The new Halos are available in seven colors, all super-sparkly.

I adhered three rows of three then added tiny die-cut leaves (from Paper Smooches Flowers 2), cut from Picture Perfect patterned paper.


Once the Halos and leaves were assembled, I adhered the panel to a block of purple Delight Dots patterned paper then again onto a white card base.  To finish my card, I added a die-cut hello sentiment (from Simon Says Stamp Handlettered Greetings).

Supplies: Purple Halos, Delightful Dots paper pad, Picture Perfect paper pad, Sheer Glue

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
