Happy Chanukah (stamping bella)

Happy Friday, everyone! This week the Stamping Bella team is revisiting our latest release. I absolutely adore the new Teeny Tiny Townies (and I had a need for a Chanukah/Hanukkah card) so I chose to use Chanukah.

Mwah (stamping bella)

Hello friends! It’s time for another challenge with Stamping Bella. This week we were to use the inspirational photo at the bottom of this post.

Stamping Bella Uptown Girls Snapshots - I Heart You

I used Uptown Girls Snapshots I Heart You.  (I was channeling my fellow DT member Paula Williamson here.)  There are several Snapshots images. This one is my favorite.

Copic markers – B23, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18, BG70, E00, E01, E11, E13, E15, E23, E25, E31, E35, E37, E49, E79, R00, R01, R24, R29, R39, Y21

I colored with markers (listed above) then added a Snapshot Polaroid frame mounted on clear foam squares for a bit of dimension. I then die-cut the smallest MWAH die three times, layered together then adhered at the base of the photo. The tiny heart is by Doodlebug.

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Pamela the Poinsettia

Also this week, I posted on Instagram the above card using Tiny Townie Pamela the Poinsettia.

Stamping Bella Edna Under the Mistletoe

I chose Edna Under the Mistletoe. I her. :)

A Few Bucks for You (paper smooches)

As I mentioned a few days ago, I’m trying to work on a stash of Christmas cards. I don’t send handmade cards to everyone on my list, but I like to have enough for those whom I know appreciate the effort.  :)

Paper Smooches Santa Paws and Icons dies

Today I’ve used Santa Paws with Santa Paws Icons dies by Paper Smooches. (Santa Paws Icons dies are currently 50% off!)

Paper Smooches Santa Paws and Icons dies (close-up)

Copic markers – E31, E33, E35, E40, E42, E43, E47, E59, R29, R89; Glossy Accents

Each “buck” was colored with Copic markers (listed above) with the noses then covered with Glossy Accents.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Merry Christmas (stamping bella)

Hi everyone! This week with Stamping Bella we are working with any image that is not from the latest release (or “vintage”). I’ve been trying to focus a bit on  Christmas cards so I chose to use Elves with Treats from The Littles Christmas Collection.

Stamping Bella The Littles Elves with Treats

I used the stamp with the three elves and candies/cookie together. The elves and candies are also available as a set with each image as a separate stamp HERE. That way you can create your own Little scenes as well.  :)

Stamping Bella The Littles Elves with Treats (close-up)

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15, BG18, C00, C1, C2, C3, C9, E00, E01, E11, E13, E31, E33, G05, R24, R29, R83, R85, R89, RV10, RV11, RV32, Y23, YG03, YG06, YG09, YR12, YR14; Signo white gel pen; gold Zig Painty marker

Once stamped and colored, I added a die-cut string of Christmas lights (also colored with Copic markers, a Signo White gel pen and a gold Zig Painty marker).

Stamping Bella Little Bits Fall Fruit and Nature

This week on Instagram, I also posted the above card.  (Trying to fit in a quick fall card before fall disappears.) I used Fall Fruit and leaves from Nature from The Little Bits Fall Collection with a Fall Sentiment.

Stamping Bella Little Bits Fall Fruit and Nature (close-up)

Copic markers – E00, E01, E07, E07, E11, E31, E33, E35, E37, E59, G21, G24, G28, R24, R29, R59, R89, Y21, YR16, YR18

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use an image from the same category as the November Stamp of the Month (Edna Loves the Ocean, 25% off through 11/30), which means use an image from the Edna the Fairy Godmother.  If you’d like, email your card to emily@stampingbella.com by next Thursday to be featured on the SB blog.

Thanksgiving Blessings (paper smooches)

Hi everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend. We’ve had more rain. Seriously…enough is enough. Everything is so soggy.

Paper Smooches Thanksgiving dies

Today my card features Thanksgiving dies with a sentiment from Fall Sampler by Paper Smooches. Super quick and easy.  :)

Paper Smooches Thanksgiving dies (close-up)

Copic markers – E07, E08, E31, E33, E35, E40, E42, Y21, YG63, YG67, YR04, YR18, YR23

After die-cutting the images from dark brown card stock, I removed all the inside pieces then die-cut again from X-Press It Blending Card. I colored the inside areas with Copic markers then inserted the pieces into the dark brown image frames.

Tip: It’s easiest to color the pieces without removing them from the image frame. If the pieces fall out, simply put them back in to color.

A sentiment from Fall Sampler finished the card. (I carefully snipped apart the Thanksgiving blessings stamp so it was easier to arrange the sentiment. I think I’ll get a lot of use out of the simple word “blessings” by itself…and I really like the font.)

Thanks for visiting today!

Stamping Bella Edna Loves the Ocean (Edna the Fairy Godmother Collection)

Along with Edna, I used a sun from The Littles Ice Cream & Lemonade.
