Stamping Bella- Uptownie Curly Clara Needs Your Address

Hi everyone

Hope you're having a lovely day so far. This morning I have a Stamping Bella Uptownie card to share with you. It's Curly Clara Needs Your Address...

I didn't want the address part of this stamp so I carefully masked out the address bubble, actually losing a bit of her hair to ensure none of the bubble was showing and then drew back in any detail that was missing with a copic multiliner. I coloured with copics and added some Kirarina Wink gold pen on her top and then fussy cut. I made a shaker card using this stunning paper from MME and sequins from Lucy's. I die cut "hello" using an MFT Dienamic.

Here's your close up.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope to see you again soon! x

Supplies: Stamps (Stamping Bella); Copics; Kirarina Wink pen; Papers (MME); Acetate; Sequins (Lucy's ); Dies (MFT)

Reverse Confetti- Happy mail!


How are you all today? Good I hope. 

Today I have a Reverse Confetti CAS card featuring Happy Mail...

I coloured all the little elements with copics and then added highlights with a white gel pen. I then fussy cut all the elements. I simply stuck this airmail-inspired paper as a large focal point across the middle of the card and then adhered the elements over the top, raising the mice up on foam pads. I stamped the accompanying sentiment in the top corner. 

Supplies: Stamps (Reverse Confetti); Copics; Paper (Pink Paislee); White gel pen

Stamping Bella- You're The Pina To My Colada!!

Hi everyone! How are you all doing?
Wow, I can't believe how fast June went and now we're already in July!! My son breaks up from Kindergarten next week- where did the time go?!!!!

Did you all have fun with the 30 Day Colouring Challenge? Well I'm so happy to say I completed it and participated every day!! But now I'll be back blogging and soon you'll be seeing the the cards I coloured images for the 30 Day Colouring Challenge popping up!

As we're having all this glorious weather in the UK, I thought I'd go all tropical today and share Stamping Bella's Tropical Squidgies...

I LOVE these cool sweeties! I coloured with copics and fussycut.  I just loved these background papers so I didn't want to make the layout too complicated so I simply cut a strip of the foiled paper for the bottom of the card panel and added some die cut banners onto which I stamped the sentiment. Finally I added some matching stickers and die-cuts. 

Don't they just look the coolest?! I especially love their pineapple and coconut dresses! Coolio!

Pop back later in the week and I'll be sharing a LOTV card. Stay cool and thanks for popping by! x

Supplies: Stamps (Stamping Bella); Copics; Papers (MME); Diecuts & stickers (MME); Dies (MFT)

Stamping Bella- New Release Sneaky Peeks Day 7- Uptown Girl Harper Goes Head First and Uptown Girl Wilma Loves Wine

Woo hoo!!! The new Stamping Bella release is tomorrow!!!!!!

Super excited! Have you made your shopping list yet? Well today I have two new Uptownies to add to your list! 

First up is Harper Goes Head First...

I coloured Harper with copics and added some white gel pen to her skirt. I then fussy cut her and the spoon separately. I created a background by masking off stripes on a card panel and blending Distress Inks and Distress Oxides over the top. I then splashed some water on the top for an ice cream condensation look!! ha ha! I then mounted Harper onto 3d foam pads and adhered the sentiment and spoon over the top. Finally I added some sequins.

Let's face it, haven't we all dreamed of doing that?! For me, it'd have to been chocolate though! 

 Now we've got Wilma Loves Wine....

Squeeeeeal!! I literally squealed when I saw this image! I LOVE it! I coloured Wilma with copics. I wanted to get that real feel of the transparency of the wine glass so I decided to colour the wine in the glass using Polychromos- my first time of using them! I also dotted some Stickles on her dress and bag. This is a gorgeously huge image so I decided to keep her the focal point and just added a few glamorous sequins!

Isn't she just stunning?


1- Stamps (Stamping Bella); Copics; Distress Oxides; Sequins

Stamping Bella New Release Sneaky Peeks Day 6- Little Bits Fairy, Floral, Little Critters and Flower Pots Sets!!

Phew!!! I've got an extravaganza of Stamping Bella new release images to show you today all from the Little Bits range.

The first two cards feature Little Bits Fairy Set and Little Bits Floral Set....

I coloured the images with copics and added some highlights with white gel pen and some Stickles to the fairy wings. I created a Distress Oxide background which I then splashed with water. I made a raised aperture to see the Distress background through and added some strips of designer paper. Finally added some sequins and a sentiment from Stuffies Kittie And Mousie Celebrate A Birthday.

Here's your close up! 

Here's my second card from these two stamp sets....

Again I coloured with copics and added Stickles to the fairy wings. This time I created a Distress Oxide background in greens to match this lovely DP. I used a sentiment from Edna The Everything Fairy.

I love how she's just perched on the daisy!

My next two cards feature two further new release stamp sets- Little Bits Little Critters and Little Bits Flower Pots...

I selected this gorgeous watering can and butterfly to colour up with copics. I added white gel pen for interest and a little Stickles on the butterfly wings. I added a banner cut from DP and a sentiment from the Garden Girl Flower Sentiments stamp set.

I seriously think this has got to be the cutest butterfly I've ever seen!!!

And finally my last sample of the day features a very cute ladybird....

I coloured up the ladybird from the Little Critters and flower trough from the Flower Pots sets and coloured with copics. I added some white gel pen for contrast and interest and some Stickles to the flowers.  I made an aperture panel cut into this gorgeous MME paper. Beneath it, I created a panel of embossed sunrays to sit behind the flower trough. I raised the ladybird up on 3d foam pads. The sentiment is from Uptownie Pippa Loves To Plant. I love mixing and matching my stamps!!

Here's your close up! what a cutie pie!!

OK, so I need a rest now!!! What a totally stunning set of stamps the new Little Bits collection are!!! You're just gonna want them all and the best thing is, you just mix and match, creating an endless combination!! Yay!

Stamping Bella- Sneaky Peek Day 4- Tulip Floral Set and Tiny Townie Daphne And Her Dogs!

Woo hoo!

It's Day 4 of the sneaky peeks of the new Stamping Bella release!! How excited are you so far? We've had all the new Oddballs, a fantastic new load of Squidgies, what else is to come???!!!

Well today, I'm featuring a gorgeous flower set and a Tiny Townie! Yippeee!!

First up is the beautiful Tulip Floral Set...

Aren't these stunning? I decided to make a journal page as I had a vision of Mostly Naomi walking through them so here she is!! I coloured all the images with copics and added some white gel pen for interest. I then fussy cut but left no white border. I then created the journal page by adhering sheet music and vintage patterns to the book page using glue and tape. I then covered the page with gesso. I  then added colour using sprays plus water and then flicked white Liquitex all over. I further added to the background by stamping stamps from the Stamping Bella's Perfect Scribbles set. Finally, I glued down Naomi and the tulips and added black shadows around them. The sentiment is from the Garden Girl Flower Sentiments set.

Aw! I love how she looks walking through! Imagine walking through a garden of giant flowers!! Love it!

And then we also have an amazing Tiny Townie image which I know you're all going to love- it's Tiny Townie Daphne And Her Dogs....

I SO love this stamp!! I coloured with copics and added a touch of white gel pen on the noses of the dogs then I cut out with a square nestie. I arranged the MME papers into a pleasing layout and then simply adhered the image on the top. The cute paw print die-cut, I bought off Ebay about 8 years ago!! Yes, I'm one of those crafters who keep EVERYTHING!!!

Your close up! Aren't they the cutest?!!
