You Know You’re in Love (stamping bella)

Hello everyone! TGIF! It’s been a long week here so I am very happy for the weekend! Today the Stamping Bella team is revisiting the Bella Exclusive Images category found HERE, HERE and a couple HERE.  The Stamp of the Month, Chocolate Bunnies, is also within the Bella Exclusive Category and is available at 20% off through 4/30.

Stamping Bella Close-Ups "In Love"

This week I used Close-Ups “In Love.”  The couple is so cute hiding behind the bouquet.  :)

Pretty paper is from Queen & Company‘s Picture Perfect paper pad.

i ♥ you sew much (paper smooches)

Hello everyone.  I hope you had a nice weekend. We’re back to cold, wet weather here. Seriously…enough is enough. Ugh.

Today I’ve used Paper Smooches‘ super cute Needle Little Love stamp set with coordinating dies. There are so many cute images in this set.  I chose a few to create a little sewing station.

Paper Smooches Needle Little Love

I stamped all pieces onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG13, C1,C2, C3, E51, G03, G05, G07, R17, R27, R35, R39

Beneath the pieces, I used two patterned scraps. The cherry print was a strip across the top of another pattern.  There was a hole in the middle (where the paper pad would hang) which I strategically covered with the pin cushion.

Thanks so  much for stopping by today.  :)

A Huge Thank You (stamping bella)

Hi everyone! Welcome to another fun Bellarific Friday with Stamping Bella!  For this week’s challenge we’re revisiting older images (anything not from the latest release). I chose an image from Bella 2.0.

Stamping Bella Flowers Behind My Back-aBella

I adore FlowersBehindMyBackABELLA …the flowers, the big skirt. She’s fun to color.  :)  After coloring with markers (listed below),  I added tiny white dots using a Kirarina Wink White pen.

Stamping Bella Flowers Behind My Back-aBella (close-up)

Copic markers – BG0000, BG10, C00, C1, C2, E00, E01, E11, E31, E35, E37, R01, R27, R32, R35, R43, RV23, Y18, Y21, YG06, YG09, YR23, Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

I stamped part of the sentiment on the main panel with the last portion stamped on black card stock, white embossed and trimmed to fit. Lastly, I added a few Epoxy Dots from Queen & Company. (I like these dots as they are slightly flatter than most dots.)

NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE

Use an image from the same category as the March Stamp of the Month (Chocolate Bunnies) which includes Stamping Bella Exclusive (or miscellaneous) Images found here, here and there are a couple here. 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!

big birthday wishes (stamping bella)

Hello everyone. Thanks for stopping by today.  :)

I’ve been on a bit of a sponged cloud kick lately. (I know, kind of random.) In today’s sky, I’ve placed Stamping Bella‘s Blossom Loves Balloons. I think she was the very first Tiny Townie I ever saw so she has a special place in my heart.  :) 

Stamping Bella Blossom Loves Balloons

I first stamped the image then sponged in the clouds,  taking care not to apply ink too terribly close to the image lines.

Stamping Bella Blossom Loves Balloons (close-up)

Copic markers – BG0000, BG10, BV02, BV20, C00, C1, C2, C3, E00, E01, E11, E31, E35, E37, G43, R0000, R00, R01, V20, Y0000, Y00, Y21, YR61; Kirarina Wink White Pearl, Dandelion, Orange, Violet and Lime Green opaque glitter pens

I colored with markers  then added dots to the balloons using Kirarina Wink glitter pens. The sentiment is from new Birthday Sentiment Set. On the stamp, the words are in one line but  I used my MISTI to reposition each word to better fit my space.

I’ll be back soon. Have a great day!

Garden Greetings (paper smooches)

Hello everyone! I hope your Monday is off to a great start. Today I have a card to share using Garden Greetings from Paper Smooches.  (There is a coordinating die set as well although I didn’t use it on my card today.)

Paper Smooches Garden Greetings

Since I’m still missing the southwest (and freezing), I’m totally gravitating toward that little barrel cactus on the right.

Each image was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.  The word “you” was stamped using Scripty Sayings.  It’s actually part of the “miss you” sentiment.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Without Change (stamping bella)

Hi everyone! It’s still cold….and I’m still dreaming of spring. So in the meantime, I’ll just color spring-like images.  Today I have Brianna the Butterfly by Stamping Bella:)

Stamping Bella Brianna the Butterfly

I cut an opening from a gingham rectangle then stamped the flowers from Garden Backdrop in the two left corners. Brianna was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with markers then fussy cut.

I added sparkle to her wings using a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush, and dots to the background and dress using white, pink and orange Kirarina Wink pens. (The sentiment is from Butterfly Sentiments.)

Thanks for visiting today! Crossing my fingers for warmer weather later this week!  :)

This Calls for a Toast (Paper Smooches)

Hello, everyone! I’m just back from a wonderful (but way too short) vacation in Tucson. I just love the desert. So very much. Here are a few pics I took along the way. (Click to enlargen.) It’s so pretty. ♥  I miss it, and family, already.

So for now, back to reality. *sigh*  :)

Today I’m sharing a card using Wake Up by Paper Smooches.

I stamped all images onto X-Press It Blending Card then die-cut each using Wake Up Icons dies.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Fun with Rosie (stamping bella)

Hi everyone.  This week with Stamping Bella we’re sharing cards using images from the latest release. There were sooo many cute images from which to choose. I at least narrowed it down to a category – Rosie & Bernie:)

Stamping Bella I Spy Rosie & Bernie

My first card uses new I Spy Rosie & Bernie with a Unicorn Sentiment.

After coloring with markers, I added bright white dots to Rosie’s dress and hat using a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen. (If you don’t have one, you *need* one. There are other colors too.  The coverage is completely opaque, even on dark!)

Stamping Bella Rosie & Bernie in New York City

Next, I used a combination of Rosie & Bernie in New York City, Statue of Liberty and Summer Sentiments.

happy spring (paper smooches)

Hi everyone!  Happy spring (assuming it is spring where you are). As I type this (which is a bit earlier than it will actually post), we are getting 6-10 inches of snow.  Yuck.

Today I’ve used cute Spring Fling and Spring Fling Icons dies by Paper Smooches.
