Stamping Bella New Release Sneaky Peek 1- Chickadeer!

Yay yay yay! It's time for another Stamping Bella release!!!! 
This release Em has got it covered with seasons and holidays including Autumn, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas etc.

Today is the first day of sneaky peeks with the release being on Saturday 3rd September so get the date in your diary!

I'll be sharing 2 peeks with you today- one this morning and one this afternoon.

This morning sees the introduction of Chickadeer....


How cute is chickie? Love his sleigh with his beautifully wrapped presents. I think he takes Christmas VERY seriously! Chickadeer was coloured with copics and cut out using Lil Inkers die. Papers are by MME. Accompanying sentiment cut out using MFT Blueprints die and MME gold glitter enamel dots added. Snowflake banner is a La La Land die.


How cute is our lil chickie?! 

Remember to drop by later as I'll have another gorgeous stamp from the new release to share with you called Christmas Bug- that's got you thinking, hasn't it??! And don't forget to pop by Blogabella to check out the rest of the release samples.

Bellarific Friday with Tiny Townie Birthday Party!

Hi everyone!

Hope you're all good. Today hubbie and I are celebrating our 11th anniversary! Yay! There's also another reason to celebrate- sneaky peeks for the new Stamping Bella release start tomorrow!!! Woo hoooo! OMG- you will LOVE all the new images!

Today's Bellarific Friday was a fab Mojobella sketch (see below)


I coloured Tiny Townie Birthday Party with copics and added white gel pen to the centre girl's dress. I cut out using the fantastic matching die. These papers are by Simple Stories. I stamped out one of the accompanying sentiments using PTI ink and added a teeny heart using a Mama Elephant die. The heart banner die is by Simon Says Stamp.


Here's your close up. I remember squealing when I first saw this image! Such an overload of cuteness! I think it's one of my most fav TT stamps.


Here was your Mojobella sketch.
Next week's challenge is STITCH IT UP. Add sewing to your card- real or faux! 

Get your entries to Em by Thursday either via email or just link using Mr Linky.

Scarlet Lime Subscription Haul!


Hey everyone! If you're in the UK, hope you're enjoying the scorching weather! It's a bit too hot for me! I hate it when you can't sleep at night because it's too muggy.

Today I have July's subscription kit from Scarlet Lime Planner Society to show you over on my Haul Videos page. Enjoy!

Bellarific Friday with Mason Jar Of Flowers

Hey everyone!
Hope you're all doing good. I have a bit of a different card to show you today. 

This week's Bellarific Friday was an inspiration photo (see below) and I chose to use Mason Jar Of Flowers...



I stamped using Stazon Ink and did some really messy watercolouring with my Peerless Watercolours. I used Ranger Watercolour paper and I have to say I wasn't that impressed with it as it definitely warped and I taped it down to a board to work on. I didn't get it crazy wet either so not greatly impressed with it. I then sprayed some white acrylic paint on by flicking a loaded paintbrush. In some areas, I went over the stamp a little with a black liner to really make it pop. Finally, I cut out using Wonky Stitched Rectangle Dynamics and added some PTI Rainstones.

I can't wait to use this stamp with more traditional watercolouring and copics as well!


Here was your photo inspiration.


Here's your Mojobella sketch for next week! 
Just use a current Stamping Bella stamp and get your entry into Em (via Mr Linky or email) by Thursday. Full details are here.

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Stamping Bella); Peerless Watercolours; White acrylic paint; Black liner pen; Rainstones (PTI); Dies (MFT); Watercolour paper (Ranger)

Lili Of The Valley- Mary and Joseph

Hi everyone!

Thought I'd share a little CAS Christmas card I made using LOTV's Mary and Joseph...


I coloured Mary and Joseph with copics and stamped the Paper Smooches sentiment in Aqua Mist ink. I die-cut a frame and added pretty LOTV paper (now retired) on top. Star die is by Memory Box.


Here's your close up. Love this sweet couple and how adorably squishy is that bear?!
