Stamping Bella Release Day 2- Sneaky Peek 2!

Hellooo! Yes, the sneaky peeks continue today for the Stamping Bella release on 3rd September.

This morning you saw Giftabella but this afternoon we have the gorgeously simple Gingerbread House...


This is such a sweet image to colour! I coloured with copics and added some Crystal Stickles around the roof. Paper is by Echo Park. The accompanying sentiment was cut out using a Paper Smooches die and a little die-cut Mama Elephant heart added.


I love the simplicity of this stamp. When images are this good- you don't need to over-embellish, just a gorgeous CAS style is enough! So cute! 

Woo hoo! Guess what?!
I'm gonna be back tomorrow with two more peeks- this time with an Edna and an Uptownie!!

Stamping Bella Sneaky Peeks Day 2- Giftabella!

I'm so excited to show you today's sneaky peeks for the new Stamping Bella release on 3rd September!

Today I have another two to share with you. This morning is the turn of Giftabella...


I'm in love with Giftabella- how gorgeous is she? I love her bob and pretty holly headband and just look at that amazing dress?! Wouldn't you love to look that stylish at Christmas?! Giftabella is coloured with copics and I added white gel pen to her dress. I fussy cut her and layered her up on white card with the sentiment stamped on. The big holly die is by PTI. A nice simple CAS card!


Here's your close up. I love colouring the new Bellas!

Pop back later and I'll be sharing a sneaky peek of Gingerbread House and don't forget to check out the other samples on Blogabella. x

Stamping Bella Day 1 Sneaky Peek 2- Christmas Bug!

Yep, it's me again with a second Stamping Bella sneaky peek! 

This morning saw the debut of Chickadeer and now it's the turn of Christmas Bug...


I LOVE this stamp! Love the whimsy tree, love how it's completely stuffed in the car and all the gorgeous lights. Just love love love!! Bug is coloured with copics and I added Kirarina Wink gold pen to the baubles on the tree and Clear Pico Embellisher to the Christmas lights. Finally I added a glitter snow paste to the snowy areas. Frame die is MFT as is the banner die. Sentiment of course accompanies main image.

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.

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.
