New Stamping Bella Release- Uptownie Selina Loves Strawberries, Teeny Tiny Townie With A Bouquet and Call Me Teeny Tiny Townie

Today I'm showcasing the last of my Stamping Bella new release samples and I have three more stunning images to share with you. 

I'm starting with the TRULY STUNNING Uptownie Simone Loves Strawberries....



I coloured Simone with copics and added white gel pen and fussy cut leaving a border. I then masked out the card blank so I could create a Distress Oxide border. Added a strip of paper, the sentiment and some crystals. How gorgeous is she????!

Next up is Teeny Tiny Townie With A Bouquet...



How adorable is she?! I coloured with copics, stamped a sentiment and layered up some pretty papers for a simple but gorgeous card. Finally added some matching hot fix crystals for that little bit bling. And how many cards could you use this image for?!!! Just personalise with your own sentiment! I used the sentiment that came with Bunny Wobble and The Peony Awwww! I can't wait to colour with up in blues and purples as well!

And finally we have Call Me Teeny Tiny Townie...


I coloured with copics and added some white gel pen and white pencil highlights. I added a simple strip of paper and then die-cut the 2 sentiments that come with the stamp set into speech bubbles. I added the third sentiment "hi" which comes with Tiny Townie Penelope Has A Pencil.
Hello? Hello? Is there anybody there?!!

So that's it for my samples for the new Stamping Bella release- how amazing was it?! I hope you got to check out the rest of the DT's amazing makes, if not, get over to the blog or individual DT blogs to get your fill!

New Stamping Bella Release- BRAND NEW CURVY GIRLS RANGE!!!!!

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas!! 
OMG YOU GUYS ARE GONNA LOVE the new STAMPING BELLA RELEASE!!!
It is going to blow your mind- the images are SO beautiful! Get ready, you're in for a treat over the next few days. The release was actually BOXING DAY but the team will be showcasing all the samples over a few days on their individual blogs.

I've got 9 samples showcasing the new release which features a new range.....

Meet the Curvy Girls!!!! 
Think Uptownies meet Lulu meet Edna!! They truly are a stunning addition to the Stamping Bella range.

These girls are Curvy Girl Besties...


So beautiful to colour!!! I coloured with copics and added some white gel pen and white coloured pencil highlights and some Stickles. Paper is by Echo Park. I kept it really simple as I didn't want to detract from the image. Simply added some hand rolled flowers and foliage and some hot fix crystals. A gorgeous image to send to your bestie or sister. I want to join the hug!!

Next up is Curvy Girl Loves Jam...


I cracked up over the sentiment- so perfect!! How perfect is this for anyone who makes their own produce??! I've got several people I know who will be receiving a card using this stamp! I coloured with copics and added white gel pen highlights. The strawberries were a die. I simply die-cut using white copic card and then coloured up. Don't you just love the font on the sentiment? So adorable!

Then we have the stunning Curvy Girl With A Hearty Wreath...


I truly think this image is so stunning, I gasped when I first saw it. I coloured with copics and added some white gel pen and fussy cut. I added the sentiment, layered the image on 3d foam pads and then finally added some gorgeous sequins. I've coloured this image to have an autumnal, Christmasy feel but wouldn't she look stunning in purples and blues for Spring or bright pinks for Summer?

Then we have Curvy Girl With A Jar Of Hearts...



I coloured with copics and fussy cut. I created a shaker card and die cut a sentiment using Stamping Bella's "mwah" dies. I adhered the main image and sentiment to the front of the card and added some hearts floating above the sentiment.

Isn't she just adorable? I love her cute short dress and her matching shoes!! Who wouldn't want shoes like that?!! 

And now Curvy Girl With A Newborn...


I coloured her with copics and decided to paper piece that gorgeous dress. I then fussy cut. I added a teeny strip of paper to ground the image that I'd raised up on 3d foam pads. I then die cut some balloons using matching papers and adhered some string behind them and tied into a bow which I then adhered behind the sentiment. How beautiful an image is this? I love the snuggle!

Finally we have Curvy Girl With Good Balance...


She's coloured with copics and then I used a bit of old towel and some copic cleaner to create a bit of a genuine towelling look to her towel. I fussy cut her leaving no white space. I created a little scene for her using some DP and the frames from Tiny Townie Room Decor stamps. Finally I added the sentiment, a teeny die-cut heart and some aqua gems to match. I think we can all relate to this card! Ha ha.

So that's today's samples for the new Stamping Bella release- how amazing was it?! I hope you got to check out the rest of the DT's amazing makes, if not, get over to the blog or individual DT blogs to get your fill!

Remember the release is already LIVE as of Boxing Day so get yourself on over and fill your basket. I'll be back again tomorrow for a special Stamping Bella blog hop and then on Monday with my other samples.

Stamping Bella- Tiny Townie Rita And The Reindeer!

Hello everyone!

Today I'm sharing my last Christmas card of the year and it's gotta be my favourite one of the year!!! 

But before I do, I just wanted to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for following me and for your comments. I really do appreciate it. If you're not a follower on Instagram, do pop over and follow me! 
HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND WISHING YOU A HEALTHY, HAPPY, PEACEFUL 2019!! LOVE YOU GUYS!!!! XXX



I've coloured with copics and added some white gel pen highlights and fussy cut leaving no white. The background is made in the usual way with Distress Oxides, splashing water and splashing white plus adding some gel pen. I used the Memory Box die to create the scene with the PTI hill behind it. I used a black pen to draw in the hanging bit of the star as that couldn't be fussy cut. Finally added a sentiment.


Here's your close up. Such an utterly stunning image! Makes me feel happy and glowy and warm!

See you very soon for the 
NEW STAMPING BELLA RELEASE and a BLOG HOP!!!!!!!

Supplies: Stamps (Stamping Bella, MFT); Copics; White gel pen; Distress Oxide Inks; Dies (PTI, Memory Box)

Gorjuss and Neat And Tangled- Hello Winter!

Hey you!

Sorry I haven't been posting much but I've been crazy busy with Christmas stuff plus I've been focusing on December Daily rather than working on cards. 

I have two more Christmas cards to share with you before I start showcasing the new Stamping Bella release!!! Woo hoo!!!!!

Anyhoo, here is my second to last card....


Remember I did that other Gorjuss card using this layout but in red? Well here is the green version!

I coloured Gorjuss' The Scarf with copics and then added some white gel pen highlights. I used my MISTI to stamp the background stamp along the panel in grey ink. I then adhered a strip of patterned paper down the eft side and added the embossed sentiment and die-cut "winter" and a teeny heart. As I said before, the layout/design of the card is by Kay Miller.


Your close up.

See you later in the week for my very last Christmas card of the year. I've saved the best til last!!!!

Supplies: Stamps (Gorjuss, Neat And Tangled); Copics; White gel pen; Wow Embossing powder; Cardstock (PTI); Dies (Neat And Tangled, MFT, Mama Elephant)

Neat and Tangled- Winter!

Hello! Sorry I haven't posted for a bit but I've been busy concentrating on December Daily and so busy with Christmas preparations. 

Today I thought I'd share a CAS card similar to the Lawn Fawn "Be Jolly" card I made a while back. This card features a sentiment die by Neat And Tangled. Sometimes I think it's nice to make a winter card rather than solely Christmas cards.


I used the MFT Stitched Strip to cut the stitched lines then I die-cut the sentiment in silver and white and simply added some sequins. I went for snowy, icy colours this time instead of the bright red, green and gold I used last time.

Supplies: Dies (MFT, Neat And Tangled); Cardstock (PTI); Sequins
