Smile. Enjoy. Celebrate. (stamping bella)

Hi everyone! Another week has come and gone in the blink of an eye. What a crazy summer.

This week the Stamping Bella team is designing with images from the same category as our Stamp of the Month, The Littles Sandcastle Set (which is 20% off through July 31).  I chose to use The Littles Ice Cream and Lemonade. You can find all Littles HERE.

I first stamped the ice cream then masked the image and stamped the girl.

I colored with Copic markers then stamped a Birthday Sentiment.  Cute background paper is from Queen & Company‘s Fruit Basket paper pad.

Earlier this week, I posted the card below using new Daphne and her Dogs on Instagram. Markers used are noted below photo. Cute paw print die is from Paper Smooches.

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

Thanks for Your Service (paper smooches)

Hi everyone! I’m just now back from a whirlwind of graduation celebrations, company and vacation. It has been a C-R-A-Z-Y month. I think things will slow down a bit now but I feel behind. I need a vacation after the last three weeks…and yes, a vacation from my vacation. It was not all good. But everyone is ok (now). Thankfully.

Today I have a fun card to share using Circle of Honor from Paper Smooches.

Paper Smooches Circle of Honor

I stamped the fireworks in red and light blue inks then added the perfect embellishments, new Starbursts, from Queen & Company.

I applied red, silver and blue Pin Stripe Glitter Tape (currently on sale), then adhered my Copic colored eagle. Quick and easy.  :)

Thanks so much for visiting today! I’ll be back soon!
