I’m Done Adulting (stamping bella)

Hi everyone.  My last two months have been so insane, I *think* I’m finally seeing a teeny tiny light at the end of the tunnel. With that in mind, both of my cards today are appropriate. It’s time to take a deep breath and do all the things I haven’t had time to do.  #craycray

This week with Stamping Bella, our challenge was to use the color palette found at the bottom of this post.

Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Mermaid

I used Tiny Townie Mermaid. Isn’t she lovely?

After coloring with Copic markers (listed above), I white embossed the Under the Sea Sentiment then added sequins and white dots using a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen.

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.

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
