RELEASE day!!!

Whooohoooo, finally, it's time see and order (yay) all the images that Emily has been teasing us with the last week.  You can see all the images by clicking here.  I'm showing another card I made with the newly released Tiny Townie Garden Girl Rose. 


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics. The paper is Doodlebugdesign "Sunkissed".  I used my Spectrum Noir sparkle pen on the image and boy, does it sparkle.  I spritzed the blue background with Shimmer Mist and actually was able to catch a bit of it in this picture.



The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the image Uptown Girl Serena Has A Sign.  I stamped it on vellum and wrapped it around the card.  I added two enamel dots to anchor it.

My shopping list is quite long....I'm off to shop now :)

Bellariffic Friday....on a Sunday

There's been so much excitement with the new teasers for the release tomorrow that I forgot to show my Bellariffic Friday card.  This week we had Mojobella sketch #25.


I used Especially for you Petunia - such a sweet image and a lovely sentiment. 


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics. The paper is MME Miss Caroline "Dolled Up".  Love the barn board paper!  I stamped part of the sentiment on the front and the rest on the inside.


Be sure to check out the rest of the BellaBabes and the Sistah's cards for this week on Blogabella.  Next week's Bellariffic Friday challenge is Friendship. So just use any image that reminds you of friendship.  

We hope you'll get stamping with us. It's easy to play along - just ink up any current (check the website) Stamping Bella image, and email your card to Emily by next Thursday for a chance to win some Bella Bucks.

Teaser alert - Tiny Townie Garden Girl Rose

It's another day of teasers.....today I'm showing off Tiny Townie Garden Girl Rose.  Now, I know she's a rose, but I wanted to show that she doesn't always have to be red :)



I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics. The sentiment is a new one from Garden Girl Sentiments.  This set has so many wonderful sentiments that you can use with a multitude of cards - so versatile.

I sprayed the lilac cardstock with Shimmer mist and used my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen on her skirt? rose? :)  It is so lovely and sparkly in real life - I tried to get a good picture of the sparkle and shimmer here.

Teaser alert - Fairy Tale Squidgies

It's time for another teaser and this one is all about fairy tales and unicorns and dragons and princesses and knights in shining armour!  It brings out the little girl in all of us!  This image is called Fairy Tale Squidgies - a perfect name for them...Squidgies...I can't wait to hear Emily's story about how this one came to life.



I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  The paper is MME Lost and Found.  I added lots of sparkle from my Spectrum Noir pen and added some frilly ribbon and a doily to finish it off.

It's time for another teaser using The Bee and the Heart image.




I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  The paper is from my scrap pile.  I added some Wink of Stella to the wings and then made it into a shaker card.  I cut out the centre of the heart and filled it with tiny sequins, stars and beads.  I stamped the sentiment that comes with it on the front.

Teaser alert - The Bee and the Heart

Hurray!  It's DAY 1 of the teasers from the new collection!  I have three, yes, THREE teaser cards to share with you today.  We'll start with this little cutie called "The Bee and the Heart".  

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  The paper is Lilybeedesign Autumn Spice.  I added some Wink of Stella to the wings and a trio of enamel dots at the top.  I copied the layout from this card from Shelabella.  Whenever I'm stuck for a layout, I always check out the rest of the Babes for inspiration!

Bellariffic Friday - First one of 2017!

It's our first Bellariffic Friday of 2017 and this week there was no challenge, so it was anything goes.  It's also the first Friday of the month so that means a new image on sale. This month, it's ThinkingofyouABELLA 2.0 and I just want to say she is a dream to colour up!!  


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics.  I used the Cut it Out die from the bundle and mounted her for some dimension.

Be sure to check out the rest of the BellaBabes and the Sistah's cards for this week on Blogabella.  Next week's Bellariffic Friday challenge is our first Mojobella sketch of 2017.  

We hope you'll get stamping with us. It's easy to play along - just ink up any current (check the website) Stamping Bella image, and email your card to Emily by next Thursday for a chance to win some Bella Bucks.

Happy Birthday BFF

I made this card for my BFF for her birthday in her fav colours. 


I stamped the image, Allboxedupabella 2.0, with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics.  The paper is retired SU.  I added a border of purple that I edged with Wink of Stella pen for some sparkle.  I also added some to the gift itself.  My BFF doesn't like glitter but she likes sparkle so I have to be veeeeery careful with her cards - LOL.  I kept the rest of the card simple and added a trio of enamel dots.  

Cheerio.....Leslie
