Happy Mail (stamping bella)

Hi everyone! Welcome to another Bellarific Friday with Stamping Bella! Today I used one of my favorites, Tiny Townie Lacey Has a Letter, from Stamping Bella’s latest release. (You can find all of the new images/dies HERE.)

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

This week we were to create using this sketch as inspiration:

Feb 10

I flipped it and shifted just a couple things (which is A-ok)! :)

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

Copic markers – BV000, B21, B23, B95, C00, C1, C2, E00, E01, E11, E27, E31, E35, E59, R20, R39, R89, Y21, Y32

I stamped her onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. Specific markers are listed above, below close-up photo.  I love her hair the best. So very easy to color!  Just a bunch of dots!

For next week’s challenge, we need to include a die in our design. Again, so easy! Use any current Stamping Bella image then email your card to emily@stampingbella.com by next Thursday to be featured on the SB blog and to be entered to win some Bella Bucks! (All challenge details can be found HERE.)

Chocolate? Oui Oui! (stamping bella)

Hi everyone! It’s time for another challenge with Stamping Bella! This week’s challenge was free form meaning “whatever we wish.” So easy.  :)  I used February’s stamp of the month, Uptown Girl Catherine Nibbling Chocolate. She’s 20% off through February 28!

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

Along with the image comes the sentiment, “You overwhelm me with awesomeness.” Today I decided to use “Oui Oui” from Slick Chick, minus the question mark at the end because really, with chocolate, there is no question. It’s always a yes, yes for me.  :)

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

Copic markers – E00, E01, E11, E31, E35, E59, R01, R59, R83, R85, RV32, W00, W1, W2, Y21

She was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers.

Next week’s challenge is to create using the following {Mojo}Bella sketch. Flip it, turn it, substitute shapes. It is for inspirational purposes only.  :)

Feb 10

Simply use any current Stamping Bella image then email your card to emily@stampingbella.com by next Thursday to be featured on the SB blog and to be entered to win some Bella Bucks! (All challenge details can be found HERE.)

Stop and Smell the Roses (stamping bella)

PAPER SMOOCHES RELEASE HOP CAN BE FOUND HERE.

Hi all! It’s another Bellarific Friday with Stamping Bella here in blog land. Today I’ve used new Tiny Townie Garden Girl Rose.

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

We were to use this photo as inspiration:

Inspire 1 27

I used only the frame portion of Uptown Girl Curly Clara Needs Your Address.

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

Copic markers – E00, E01, E11, E31, E33, E35, G28, R00, R01, R02, R05, R21, R22, W00, W1, W2, W3, W5, W7, Y21, Y23, YG07, YG17, YR23

I also used my MISTI to manipluate the positioning of the sentiment words (from new Garden Girl Sentiments).

Next week’s challenge is “free form” (or “do whatever you’d like”).  Use any current Stamping Bella image then email your card to emily@stampingbella.com by next Thursday to be featured on the SB blog and to be entered to win some Bella Bucks! (All challenge details can be found HERE.)

The Cutest Flower and Copic Storage

Hi everyone! If you visit my blog often, you know how much I love Stamping Bella‘s Tiny Townies. But the new Tiny Townie Garden Girls? My FAV-o-rite! (Said in a singing voice noone should ever hear.) They are so very cute, and this one, Lily of the Valley, is my absolute favorite among the favorites.

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

She is adorable, and I’ve always loved Lily of the Valley. I remember seeing it in the yard of one of my childhood homes. I was always mesmerized by the shape of the blooms, like little delicate bells, and the scent…so lovely.

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

Copic markers – E00, E01, E11, E27, E31, E35, G16, R00, R01, R20, RV00, RV11, RV32, W00, W1, W2, YG07, YG09

I stamped Lily onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. After coloring, I added a few small rhinestones as tiny accents. The sentiment is from new Garden Girl Sentiments stamp set.

Marker-Storage-4

It’s been a while since I’ve shared my workspace. This is where the magic happens (haha), more like where the chaos happens.  It *never* looks this neat. Never. Ever.

Marker-Storage-5

I store my Copic Sketch/Ciao and wide markers, as well as atyou Spica glitter pens, Kirarina pens and Multiliners, as well as miscellaneous other items in these tower cubbies my husband built for me. I have them front and center on my desk. There are five cubby holes per “tower.” I have five towers and it seems to be the perfect amount of space. I do not own every Copic marker, but I do have an extensive collection.

Marker-Storage-6

Since I have quite a few R(ed) and B(lue) markers, I split them into two cubbies, placing the darker hues below the light (as shown in blue above). Doing so helps me to quickly find what I’m looking for.

To be honest, it pained me a bit to take these photos with the markers all askew, but right after I thought about straightening each of them, I decided that was not going to happen. Haha.

Thanks so much for visiting today! ♥

Friends like You (stamping bella) and Pantone Color of the Year

Hi friends! TGIF! This week’s Stamping Bella theme is Friendship. So many of Stamping Bella’s images fall into this category (which is wonderful)! I chose to use Uptown Girls Felicity & Blair with Pantone’s Color of the Year, Greenery.

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

To color the girl on the left whom I will deem “Felicity,” I used Pantone’s Color of the Year, Greenery, or Copic equivalent YG25, along with coordinating hues of YG23, YG07 and YG09. My selections are just that – my selections. There are numerous color combinations from which to choose. You can explore all yellow-green hues HERE.

Untitled-1

Each year, Pantone’s choice is intended to be a reflection of the mood and attitude of our global culture. As noted in the graphic above, Greenery is refreshing and revitalizing, symbolic of new beginnings. I think we could all use a little (or a lot) of that, considering all that has happened and is happening in our world today. With her YG25 dress, Blair, drinks and cupcakes, Felicity is ready to take on whatever 2017 brings!  (Note that she’s holding the drinks.) 😉

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

Copic markers – BG11, C00, C1, C2, E00, C01, E11, E13, E15, E18, E31, E35, E47, E51, E53, R01, R81, R83, R85, RV32, YG23, YG25, YG07, YG09

Next week’s challenge includes this inspirational photo:

Hello crafty friends! Thanks for stopping by today! My blog has been sooo busy… Thanks for hanging in with me.  I’m curious to know which are your favorites so far from Stamping Bella‘s upcoming release (Monday, 1/16)?  I think I like the Garden Girls the best. But I can’t pick just one.  :)

Today I’m sharing my last two peeks, as well as this week’s Bellarific Friday challenge card.

Here’s mine, using Uptown Girl Ava Loves to Celebrate.

Ava is actually stamped on the inside of the card with a circular opening cut in the front for her to peek through.

The front sentiment is from Uptown Girl Brittany the Birthday Girl, and the inside sentiment is from Tiny Townie Birthday Party.

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

Here’s a close-up of the inside:

Stamping Bella January Release Preview – Garden Girl Lilac

Hi everyone! Today I am using another new Tiny Townie from Stamping Bella‘s upcoming January 16 release. Meet Garden Girl Lilac. She’s so, so sweet!

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

She was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. Once colored, I added dots of Glossy Accents to each of the flower centers, like little drops of dew. :)  The sentiment is from new Garden Girl Sentiments. This one is my favorite.

Stamping Bella January Release Preview – Chocolate and Orchids

Hello everyone! I’m back sharing two more samples from Stamping Bella‘s January 16 release! Today I have a new Edna image as well as a new Tiny Townie. :)

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

First, Edna Loves Chocolate. I love her and her dotted outfit! And her curly hair. And her little heart headband… :)

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

I think she’s taking inventory to make sure her kids haven’t been in that heart box. (That’s what I’d be doing.)

Next up is a new line of Tiny Townies – Garden Girls. You know I ♥ them.

MIchele Boyer - Stamping Bella

Meet Garden Girl Orchid. She’s so dainty! :)

MIchele Boyer - Stamping Bella

Michele Boyer - Stamping Bella

I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. After paper-piecing the shirt (which I haven’t done in eons), I added bits of shadow using gray markers. The sentiment was die-cut using the coordinating Thinking of You-abella dies.
