Stamping Bella’s October Stamp of the Month – Garden Girl Marigold

Hi everyone! TGIF! This week the Stamping Bella team is creating with the October Stamp of the Month, Tiny Townie Garden Girl Marigold.  The image and coordinating die are both available at 25% off through October 31st.

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Garden Girl Marigold

She’s perfect for creating fall cards. I used Copic markers in yellow and yellow/red hues, adding shadow with darker earth tones.

Copic markers – BG10, BG70, E00, E01, E08, E09, E11, E13, E31, E33, E39, E59, G07, G85, R01, W00, W1, W2, Y17, Y18, Y38, YG01, YG03, YG17, YG25, YR04, YR09

Once colored, I die-cut the panel with two stitched rectangle dies then inserted a fall sentiment strip across and beneath the die-cut pieces. Lastly, I added a few tiny hearts and dark orange rhinestones.

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

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!

Floral Sympathy (paper smooches)

Hi everyone. I never seem to have a sympathy card on hand when needed so I decided to begin periodically creating in that theme, here and there. Today I’ve used Botanicals 2 by Paper Smooches.

Paper Smooches Botanicals 2, Sympathy Sampler and Prayers die

After stamping the flowers, I added a few dots using a Violet Kirarina Wink glitter pen.

A partial Sympathy Sampler sentiment was stamped in white then white embossed with a Prayers die-cut placed beneath.
