Hanging out


Hi there!!!  Have you been enjoying all of the sneak peeks over at Stamping |Bella???  I can't wait for the upcoming release, it's not too long now before you can get your hands on some of the fantastic stampy goodness. This week, we had a great sketch to work with. 


For my card, I decided I wanted to use an image called Thinking Birds that I haven't used in a long time. It was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. After that, I sponged the background using Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade (both Tim Holtz) and some SU Pumpkin Pie ink.  I love how it just pops off the card. 

Next week's challenge is Valentines Day!! We want to see your cards of love!!! 

We'd love for you to participate.  Make sure you use a current image (if you aren't sure, type the stamps' name into the search bar) and then get your card into Emily by Thursday evening at emily@stampingbella.com

Have a great day!!!

Spit Happens


Welcome to another Bellarific Friday. We're all getting excited about the upcoming release.  I can't wait!!! This week at Stamping Bella, we had a great colour challenge as shown below. Isn't it fab??? At first the colours scared me but a quick look through my DP and I found some DP that would work great. To me, the colours scream boy so I decided to use the image called Spit Happens. This cute little guy has been coloured with Prismacolour Pencils and Gamsol.  The layout for my card is the current Sweet Sunday sketch challenge. Go me!! 


Next week's challenge is a sketch challenge. Check it out!!!

Gracie's a cutie


Hi there!!! It's a new year and there are so many fun things happening at Stamping Bella this year!!! It's our first Bellarific Friday of the year and we are so excited about the things happening. First off, we want to introduce another fabulous Bella babe. A big 'Bella-welcome' to Kerri - check out her gorgeous creations on her blog here

You'll also notice that the entire team is using the same image today. Wanna know why??? We now have a featured stamp of the month and this month we are featuring Gracie.  We get to highlight an awesome stamp (who are we kidding? All of the stamps are awesome) and you get a ton of inspiration. With that being said, the featured stamp is 20% off for the entire month!! 

 So, lets get on to our first challenge of 2015.  This week the challenge was "anything goes", so that was an easy one to start off another wonderful year of stamping! For my card, I have used Gracie along with the current Sweet Sunday sketch challenge. I'm trying to make a bigger commitment this year to do more sketches. I've coloured Gracie with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I also paper pieced her dress for a bit of fun to match the DP. 

Next week's challenge is a sketch!!! 


Don't forget you have until Thursday evening to get your card in to Emily at emily@stampingbella.com.  All that we ask is that you use a current image (just type in the stamp name in the search bar)..  

See you soon!!!

All about the babies


Hi there!!! I'm just popping in quickly with one last card before we ring in the new year.  As soon as I saw this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge, I knew I wanted to play. My mom needed a baby card so I decided to ink up Snookums from Stamping Bella .  I think this may be one of my favorite baby images ever!! Love it!! 

I'll be back in a day or two with a fun new project!! 

Happy New Years!!!

Sending love


Hi there!!!! Sending lots of love your way!! This week at Stamping Bella we had a sketch to work with and to be honest, it scared me when I first looked at it. 


Believe me when I say I stared at it for a long time... And then suddenly it dawned on me. For my card, I decided to use the image called "Lucille Sends her Love". I flipped the sketch on its side and coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  I then used a Memory Box die twice with two different papers and popped a couple of the hearts up.  

This is the last challenge of the year but I'll be back soon with another card and more details about our first challenge of 2015.
