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

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!

Follow the Bunny (stamping bella)

Hi everyone! TGIF! This week the Stamping Bella team is designing with the April Stamp of the Month, Chocolate Bunnies. The set includes three bunnies and a cute sentiment, 20% off through April 30.  :)

Stamping Bella Chocolate Bunnies

I stamped the various bunnies across the panel then die-cut and popped up the larger bunny on clear foam squares. The bit of pink string was colored with a Copic marker.

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!  :)

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.

I used a scalloped border die to create (sponge) the sky background, cut out the statue by hand and used the coordinating die for Rosie and Bernie. I love that they’re eating hot dogs.  :)

Do What Brings You Joy (stamping bella)

Hi everyone!  I’m popping in today with a card I created using one of Stamping Bella‘s latest releases, Gnome on a Swing. I adore the gnome, but even more, I adore the sentiment.

And note that bitty caterpillar on the branch. So cute.  :)

Bunny Love (stamping bella)

Hi everyone! TGIF! This week the Stamping Bella team is using any older image (not from the latest release). With Easter just around the corner, I pulled out a few of my favorite Easter/spring sets.  At the top of that list is Tiny Townie  Becky Loves Bunny Wobbles. ♥ 

Stamping Bella Becky Loves Bunny Wobbles

I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card then colored with Copic markers. I die-cut a gingham frame using two circle dies then adhered it over the outer edge of a die-cut window.
