Smile (stamping bella)

Hi everyone.  Welcome to another Bellarific Friday with Stamping Bella! This week we are creating with older images, not from the latest release. I chose to use Tiny Townie Butterfly Girl Bess.

Yo ho, Yo ho (paper smooches)

Hi everyone. I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things here. It’s been crazy.

Today I’ve used Ahoy Me Hearty from Paper Smooches:)

Paper Smooches Ahoy Me Hearty

Once colored with Copic markers, my parrot was die-cut using its coordinating Ahoy Icons Die then perched atop a Seasonal Tree (minus one branch).

Life’s a Beach (stamping bella)

Hello everyone. Today the Stamping Bella team is creating with the July Stamp of the Month, The Littles Sandcastle Set. It’s soooo cute.  And 20% off through July 31.  :)

Stamping Bella Littles Sandcastle Set

I created a little scene by first sponging some clouds then added a bit of (kraft) sand.

After stamping the Summer Sentiment, I adhered the window panel on foam tape then adhered the Copic colored elements.  Once complete, the scene was adhered over a block of red Delightful Dots patterned paper from Queen & Company.

Also this week, I posted the below card on Instagram.  (New Fishing Squidgy.)

Fun with PomPoms (queen & company)

Hello there! I have been having loads of fun playing with Queen & Company’s pompoms.  The poms are available in the super cool Birthday Bash kit as well as individual colors/sets (in cute bags) and as a kit refill. So many great options.  : )

Thank-You-Poms-500

On my first card, I used multiple pompoms to create flowers in the shape of a heart on yellow Delightful Dots patterned paper. I found it helpful to layout the design first then snap a quick photo with my cell phone to use as a reference when adhering the poms.

Thank-You-Poms-500-CU

To create the small green leaves, I trimmed just a tiny bit away from one side of a small green pom then pinched the ends before adhering.

To adhere each pom, I used medium and small Gloobers. Using the Gloobers, assembly was quick and easy with no mess. Once assembled, I added a die-cut sentiment then adhered the panel to my card base.

Supplies:  PomPoms from Birthday Bash kit, Delightful Dots patterned paper, Gloobers, Handlettered Greetings (Simon Says Stamp)

Welcome-Baby-500

Next, I created a Welcome Baby card, using pompoms as a sort of mobile. I first adhered a block of Flirty Florals pattered paper to a white card base. I then die-cut white card stock using the long side of an oval die. I die-cut a second piece of white card stock, again with the oval die, then slid the die down just a bit and die-cut again to create the arched border. I adhered a strip of foam tape behind the “canopy,” then adhered lengths of white string to the foam tape. I adhered the canopy to the top of the floral paper with the strings loosely hanging down.

Welcome-Baby-500-CU

I determined the length of each string then adhered Gloobers to hold the string ends in place. I trimmed away the excess string then adhered my poms.

To create the white “paneling” below the mobile, I firmly scored white card stock every ¼”, added a thin strip across the top and, lastly, adhered the die-cut sentiment.

Supplies: PomPoms from Birthday Bash kit, Flirty Florals patterned paper, Gloobers, Handlettered Greetings (Simon Says Stamp)

The Birthday Bash kit can be used for so much more than just birthdays! How else can you imagine using the pompoms?
