Feeling Fall(ish) – Stamping Bella

Hi everyone.  You may recall that Stamping Bella‘s Tiny Townie Bonnie Loves Bows is the August Stamp of the Month. She is 20% off through August 31st. This week, we’re using other images from that same Tiny Townie category. I chose Patricia Loves Pumpkins.

Stamping Bella Patricia Loves Pumpkins

After stamping the image onto X-Press It Blending Card, I colored with Copic markers then adhered to a brown dotted panel of patterned paper.

Copic markers – E00, E01, E07, E08, E09, E11, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, R01, Y21, YG63, YG67, YR04, YR12, YR14, YR23, YR27, W00, W1, W2

Before adhering to my card base, I used a needle to punch a hole along the top and left border to thread the twine. Grid paper came in handy to ensure the holes were equal distance from the corner.

Stamping Bella Autumn Loves Autumn

Also this week (posted on Instagram), I used Tiny Townie Autumn Loves Autumn. (I’ve been in a fall mood…even though it’s still about 90 degrees outside.)

Once colored, I adhered a sprinkling of Taylored Expressions’ Little Bits Leaves (X-Press It Blending Card colored with Copic markers.)
