Stamping Bella Previews – Squidy Pals and Goalies

I’m back today to share a few more samples from Stamping Bella‘s upcoming June 25 release. Today we have new Squidgy Pals and Goalie Squidgy:)

Stamping Bella Squidgy Pals

Squidgy Pals is a set of four of the cutest little squidgies ever. Here I paired one with a peek at another new set which shall not be named until Saturday. (Shhhh, I snuck it in.)

Copic markers – B16, B24, B66, B69, BG10, BG11, BG13, E00, E01, E11, E35, E37, G17, R01, R24, R39, R83, R85, RV32, W1, W2, W3, YG03, YG06, YG09

I colored with markers then white embossed a sentiment from Tiny Townie Ellie the Elf. The flower border is from Taylored Expressions’ Skinny Mini Borders 2 and patterned paper is Picture Perfect from Queen & Company.

I colored with markers, cut out and adhered over strips of Birthday Bash and Delightful Dots patterned paper from Queen & Company. Balloon dies are from Paper Smooches.

Stamping Bella Goalie Squidgy

And last but not least for today is new Goalie Squidgy. I am a H-U-G-E hockey fan, specifically the 2018 Washington Capitals Stanley Cup CHAMPIONS!  (#ALLCAPS #fanthroughthickandthin #superexcitingyear #itwasstressful) So I was happy to see this cute goalie.

Of course I colored him in Washington Capitals colors (how could I not?) and used a Queen & Company black Epoxy Dot as the puck. Patterned paper is from Fruit Basket (also Q&C).

Stamping Bella Previews – Oddball Graduate

Hi everyone! I’m back today sharing one more of the new Oddballs, coming to Stamping Bella June 25th!

Stamping Bella Oddball Boy Graduate Meet Oddball Boy Graduate. Of course, there is an Oddball Girl Graduate too.  :) If it weren’t for the actual excitement of being “done,” I believe this is what a lot of graduates would look like after all of those finals and projects.

A HUGE Thank You (stamping bella)

Hi everyone! Welcome to another Bellarific Friday with Stamping Bella! This week we were to use an image in the same category (Bella 2.0) as our Stamp of the Month (All Boxed Up). I chose Flowers Behind My Back aBella.

Stamping Bella Flowers Behind my Back-abella

I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card then colored with Copic markers. The dress portion of the image was stamped again onto patterned paper (from Doodlebug Design’s Hello 6×6 paper pad), cut out and adhered over the stamped image. Once adhered I added shadow using Copic grays and blue-greens.

Thanks (stamping bella)

Hello everyone! My card today features one of my favorites from Stamping Bella‘s Squidy category, Daisy Squidgy:)

Stamping Bella Daisy Squidgy

After coloring with Copic markers, I added tiny dots to her dress with a Kirarina Wink White Pearl glitter pen. I highly recommend the Kirarina Wink pens for adding detail or even coloring small areas, anything really, on darker colors. The ink is 100% opaque and leaves just a tiny bit of texture.

Copic markers – BG10, BG11, BG70, BG96, BG99, E000, E00, E01, E11, E31, E35, E39, E44, E59, G43, G46, R01, W00, W1, W2, Y21, YR23, Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen

Once complete, I adhered the panel to yellow dotted paper from Echo Park’s Have Faith paper pad. The tiny hearts are by Doodlebug Design. (ou’ll see lots of them on my future cards. I love them!

Stamping Bella All Boxed Up (Bella 2.0 Collection)

I stamped my Bella onto X-Press It Blending Card then colored the girl and tissue paper with Copic markers. I wanted a bit of pattern on the box and bow so I paper-pieced those portions with Doodlebug Design’s Hello patterned paper.

Once the patterned pieces were cut out and adhered over the stamped image, i added shadow using cool gray Copics.
