Stamping Bella

Easter Smiles

Hi there!

Every year, I always feel that I don’t spend enough time using my Easter supplies. I don’t have THAT much, and I try to be quite disciplined with Easter-themed purchases, but I still feel a lot of pretty stamps and dies are far too neglected.

For today’s card, I could not resist inking up one of my favourite Easter Stamps, purchased many years ago from Stamping Bella. Isn’t it cute? I coloured it with my Twinkling H2Os and added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp. To add a bit of interest to the background, I lightly stamped  a My Favorite Things background stamp with distress ink before colouring in the main image.

I’m going to enter this into the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes).

Thanks for stopping by!

Being different isn’t a bad thing…

Hi there!

The cue word for this week’s Casology challenge is ‘odd’ and here is my take using a sweet Stamping Bella Stamp! I guess it’s really more of an Easter/Spring stamp BUT it fit the challenge perfectly in my view!

I coloured the birds with my Twinkling H2os and then added some more shimmer to the ‘odd one out’ with my Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen.

So confession time… This card started out as a standard UK A6 card…. but I messed up when I stamped the sentiment. My paper must have moved slightly in my MISTI. Rather than lose the image I’d coloured, I framed it and re-stamped the greeting. Phew. And I do like a lot of white space!!

Sorry about the quality of the photos – I had to take them under artificial light as we have been affected by the red sun caused by Hurricane Orphelia today – very eerie indeed. It was dusk-like from midday onwards! I can only liken the feeling to the 1999 eclipse!

Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you Bella

Hi everyone!

The theme for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is ‘Going Dotty’ and I immediately thought of some circle dies from SSS that I haven’t used for AGES. I used stamps from Stamping Bella which I coloured using Twinkling H2Os.

I finished off the card by adding a few enamel dots in the frame – I used some actate behind the frame where it comes off the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
