Waffle Flower- Stay Cool!

Hey everyone!

Have you got over the excitement of the latest Stamping Bella release?! I hope you all filled your basket like me!

Today I have another card I made using the Waffle Flower Stay Cool set...

I coloured all the images with copics and added some white gel pen highlights and then fussy cut. I created the card base using some MFT paper and then created a small Distress Oxide panel to go behind my polaroid frame, splashed with water and then stamped the waves once dry. I then adhered to the back of the polaroid die cut and then stamped the sentiment on the bottom. I then adhered the polaroid frame to the patterned paper and then added the coloured images.

Enjoy your day, thanks for stopping by! x

Supplies: Stamps (Waffle Flower); Copics; Distress Oxides; Paper (MFT); Dies (MFT?)

Stamping Bella New Release- Swimming Gnomes and Caffeinated Gnome!

These gnomes from the new Stamping Bella release are SO much fun!

First up we have Swimming Gnomes....

I coloured the gnomes with copics- don't you just love their bathing costumes?! - and fussy cut. I then created a coffee coloured Distress Oxide panel- I tried to make it a bit swirly and cloudy. I then stamped the sentiment, raised the gnomes up on foam pads. Finally added some enamel hearts which were perfect!

Next up is Caffeinated Gnome...

I coloured with copics, stamped the sentiment above and cut out using a Lil Inkers square die. I then mounted on DP and adhered to card blank and finally added a die cut heart and crystal.

I hope you've loved my new release samples, don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's work!

Stamping Bella- New release Tiny Townies Playing Hopscotch!


Are you enjoying the new fantastic release from Stamping Bella? Have you filled your basket already? If not get yourself on over there!!

Today's sample I'm showcasing is Tiny Townies Playing Hopscotch....

I've coloured with copics and stamped the sentiment underneath. I then created a panel the same size as the card blank and cut a circular aperture using a Nestie die- it was very tricky!  I then stuck a strip of ruler DP to the top of the panel. On the front of the card base I stuck some blackboard paper and then raised the panel up on 3d foam pads to add dimension.

This is such an adorable image and perfect to send to any old childhood friends! Check out the other new Tiny Townies as there is also a ring-a-roses one and a playing jacks one- so cute!!

Stamping Bella New Release- Curvy Girl With A Cocktail and Curvy Girl Is Busy!


Today I'm showcasing two of the gorgeous new Curvy Girls from the new Stamping Bella release. First up is Curvy Girl With A Cocktail...

I REALLY love her! Look at that dress??!!! Amazing! So I coloured her with copics and added some Stickles and a few highlights with a white gel pen. I then fussy cut her out. I then cut a white panel and stamped the sentiment on and then masked off a section so that I could create my funky bubbly background strip with Distress Oxides and an MFT circle stencil- it's meant to look like a bubbly cocktail. I layered onto a gorgeous strip of stripy blue paper and adhered to the card base. I 3d mounted my die-cut "celebrate" cut it out die and adhered to the top of the panel and then added the the Curvy Girl on top.

I love how she turned out!

Next meet Curvy Girl Is Busy...

I coloured her with copics and then added some white pencil to create her pinstripe suit- cool huh? I then fussy cut. I created a circular aperture and adhered some patterned paper. I then layered up a panel covered with the speech bubble paper. I then cut out some speech bubbles from the paper and adhered to the red panel through the aperture. I then added the Curvy Girl and sentiment. She is one super busy girl! Love her post-it notes dropping to the floor.

Stamping Bella- new release and an Uptownie named after me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well the day has finally come when I can share something SOOOOOO exciting with you!

It's the new Stamping Bella release day and I can finally tell you that I've had an Uptownie named in my honour!!! Woo hooooooo! I can't tell you how exciting this has been for me!

If you want to learn all about how it came about, check out Em's story about it on Blogabella. Em is literally THE sweetest, kindest, most generous soul. 

So without further is......Uptownie Stephanie Loves Ballet!!

I coloured her using the no-lines technique which I think gives her a dreamy quality! I kept the card so simple as I didn't want to detract from the image. I mounted her on lilac card, added a string of pearls and some gems.

I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful image! 

Before I carry on babbling about how lucky I am, I need to remind you that the rest of the DT are showcasing all the amazing new release stamps. We have Teeny Tiny Townies, an Uptownie, Curvy Girls, Oddball animals and new whimsical stamps from Danielle Donaldson! It's amazing!! Get yourself on over to the website and fill your boots!!!!! 

Back tomorrow with two Curvy Girls!!! xxx

Stamping Bella- Uptown Zodiac Girl Scorpio!

Hey peeps!

I coloured with copics and added some fine white highlights with a pencil. I then fussy cut. I created a Distress Ink panel on the front of my card base and then added a strip of paper at the base. I then popped up Scorpio onto 3d foam pads and added her after I'd stamped the sentiments in the centre line of the card. Finally I added some hot fix crystals.

Your close up! Isn't she such a stunning stamp?!!!
