A HUGE Thank You (stamping bella)

Hi everyone! Welcome to another Bellarific Friday with Stamping Bella! This week we were to use an image in the same category (Bella 2.0) as our Stamp of the Month (All Boxed Up). I chose Flowers Behind My Back aBella.

Stamping Bella Flowers Behind my Back-abella

I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card then colored with Copic markers. The dress portion of the image was stamped again onto patterned paper (from Doodlebug Design’s Hello 6×6 paper pad), cut out and adhered over the stamped image. Once adhered I added shadow using Copic grays and blue-greens.

thanks so much (paper smooches)

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping in! My card today uses one of my favorite word dies and pretty Best Buds flowers by Paper Smooches.

Paper Smooches Best Buds

My color choices were based on those thin slivers of patterned paper you see peeking out from the left and right sides. I truly love Echo Park’s Have Faith patterned paper. The thin strips were scraps I just couldn’t throw away.

Copic markers – BG10, E33, E35, G94, G99, R39, R83, R85, RV11, RV32, YG63

I colored with markers, die-cut the image with it’s coordinating die then adhered over a sponged background. “Thanks” and the heart from Thanks so Much were die-cut from dark gray card stock, adhered and traced over with Glossy Accents. “So much” was stamped from All Year Cheer.

I’ll be back soon!  Have a great day!

You’re Fintastic (paper smooches)

Hi everyone. Today I’m off to the ocean!  Not really. That would be nice though. Haha.  On my card today I’ve used Briny Blue along with Ocean Scene dies by Paper Smooches.

Paper Smooches Briny Blue

After stamping the images, I colored with markers and added a sprinkling of Kirarina Wink White dots. There is a Briny Blue coordinating four-die set but I don’t happen to have that one so I fussy-cut each image.

Copic markers – BG11, BG13, R83, R85, RV11, RV32, V15, Y21, YG03, YG06, YR23, Kirarina Wink White Pearl

Before creating/adhering my scene, I sponged a wavy background using Taylored Expressions’ Go with the Flow stencil. In addition to the fish, I added a few Ocean Scene plants, coloring each with markers then a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush. (“You’re” was stamped from Surf & Turf set.)

Thanks for stopping by today!

Love You Moo & Moo (paper smooches)

Hi everyone! I have a little bit of farm love/humor today.  :)  I’ve used Paper Smooches‘ cute Green Acres stamp set with coordinating dies.

Paper Smooches Green Acres

The images were stamped then colored with Copic markers. I stamped the wheat, colored and cut out with scissors (as there is no die for that).  The hills (or Snow Drifts) were die-cut from Doodlebug Design’s Down of the Farm, *really* cute patterned paper, and the sentiment was white embossed.

Copic markers – B23, B93, B95, BG11, E01, E11, E18, E35, R01, R02, R29, R89, Y21, YR23, 110

Once the scene was assembled, I die-cut a few Tiny Hearts and adhered as musical notes coming from the little bird.  :)

Thanks (stamping bella)

Hello everyone! My card today features one of my favorites from Stamping Bella‘s Squidy category, Daisy Squidgy:)

Stamping Bella Daisy Squidgy

After coloring with Copic markers, I added tiny dots to her dress with a Kirarina Wink White Pearl glitter pen. I highly recommend the Kirarina Wink pens for adding detail or even coloring small areas, anything really, on darker colors. The ink is 100% opaque and leaves just a tiny bit of texture.

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG70, BG96, BG99, E000, E00, E01, E11, E31, E35, E39, E44, E59, G43, G46, R01, W00, W1, W2, Y21, YR23, Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

Once complete, I adhered the panel to yellow dotted paper from Echo Park’s Have Faith paper pad. The tiny hearts are by Doodlebug Design. (ou’ll see lots of them on my future cards. I love them!

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.

Reel Great Dad and an Open Door (paper smooches)

Hi everyone!  I’m popping in today to share two cards I created using stamps from Paper Smooches:)

Paper Smooches My Guy

First I created a quick and easy card for dad using My Guy stamp set. I simply stamped the reel then stamped the fish onto another scrap piece of white card stock. After coloring with markers, I cut him out and adhered to the end of the reel, using liquid glue under his mouth and a clear foam square beneath his tail for a bit of added dimension.

Copic markers – BG13, YG03, YG06, YR12

I added a scrap piece of Picture Perfect striped paper from Queen & Company, a few enamel shapes, then rounded the corners and adhered to a patterned block.

Paper Smooches Bitty Bungalows

My next card features Bitty Bungalows.  The bitty bungalow sits atop a Stitched hill with Flowers 2 sprinkled around.

Copic markers – B0000, BG11, X2, C3, E31, E33, R000, R21, R22, R81, Y21, YG03; Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

I colored with Copic markers then used a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen to add the centers of the flowers. Once the stamped panel was assembled, I adhered it over more Picture Perfect paper using foam tape.

Thanks so much for visiting today.  :)
