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?!!

Stamping Bella New Release- Sneaky peek day 2- Oddball Shopper and Oddball Standing Boy!

Hey hey hey!!

So excited for this new Stamping Bella release!! It's Day 2 and we've got some super amazing stamps to show you today. Carrying on with the new range of Oddball stamps, today I have Oddball Shopper and Oddball Standing Boy to share with you.

Meet Oddball Shopper....


I coloured her with copics, adding some shadowy BVs and Cs to make her skin tone slightly grey and eerie. I then fussy cut and made the background using Distress Oxides blended together and splashed with water. I then used Stamping Bella's Java Spills to create interest. I raised her up on 3d foam pads and finally added the matching sentiment. Funky, no?! I love that you can use her on cards but brilliant for art journalling too!


Here's your close up. I wanted to go for big bright cartoony colours to contrast with her grey skin tones. Oh, and I added some white gel pen for interest.

Now meet Oddball Standing Boy...


Again I coloured him with copics and fussy cut. This time I went for a more traditional look by layering different papers (from Scrapberry ). Sentiment comes with. I added some Finnabair hardware stars fo finish.


Here's your close up!

Lili Of The Valley- Big Present!

Hi ya my crafty friends!

I'm really excited to be joining in with the 30 Day Colouring Challenge this time around which begins on 1st June- are any of you doing it? If you want to catch up with my daily colouring, don't forget to check out my Instagram account and, of course, don't forget to follow me there if you aren't already!! 

Hope you're all well. Here's another card I made yonks ago but haven't had a chance to post featuring LOTV's Big Present...


I coloured him with copics and fussy cut. I then made a clean and simple card by cutting a panel to fit the front side of the card blank. I then die cut some stars using MFT dies and adhered some patterned paper to the front of the card blank so that it appeared behind the die-cut stars in the panel. I added a strip of paper to the front of the panel and then stuck the panel down to the card blank. I then raised the image up on 3d pads and adhered to the middle of the panel and then stamped the PTI sentiment onto a die-cut stitched banner. I then raised the banner up on 3d foam pads as well. 


Such a cute image!!

Supplies: Stamps (LOTV, PTI); Copics; Papers (Echo Park); Dies (MFT)

Paper Smooches- My Guy!

Hi ya!!

I've been really busy working on something I'll share with you soon but for now I'll share a card I made a while back but haven't had a chance to post.

It's a very simple male card featuring Paper Smooches My Guy stamp set....


I coloured a few of the golfing elements with copics and then cut out using the accompanying dies. I sponged a background using the MFT Geometric Grid stencil and some distress inks. I heat embossed in white the golfing sentiment on black cardstock and cut out using an MFT banner die. I popped all the elements up on 3d foam pads and then added some Sprinkles. Job done-easy!

I decided to enter this into the Paper Smooches May Blog Challenge- fun!

Supplies: Stamps (Paper Smooches); Copics; Dies (Paper Smooches, MFT); Sprinkles (Doodlebug); Stencils (MFT); Cardstock (PTI); White embossing powder (Simon Says Stamp)
