Happy Birthday Krista

July has been a busy, busy month for birthdays.  This is the card I made for Krista who celebrated her birthday on Saturday but won't see her card until today :)


I stamped the image, Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lilac, with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics.  I used the coordinating die to cut her out.  The sentiment is from Tiny Townie Blossom Loves Balloons and I embossed it with white embossing powder.  This is one of Ingebella's layouts.  I adore her layouts and refer to them/CASE them often!  She's one of our new Bella Babes and she is awesome!  Check out her blog here. 

I'll have another birthday card I made for another friend to show you on Wednesday, so check back then.

Cheerio.....Leslie

Bellariffic Friday - Christmas in July

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was "Christmas in July".  I used Tiny Townie Skylar Loves To Skate which comes with the little pond for her to skate on too!


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics. I used the coordinating die to cut her and the pond out.  On the pond I added a generous layer of glossy accents.  The background is embossed with a snowflake embossing folder and I added some rhinestones to the middle of some of the snowflakes.  I added a larger clear snowflake at the top with another glittery large rhinestone.

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 Inspiration Challenge 7.  Here's the photo - use anything from it as your inspiration.


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 to be featured on Blogabella and for a chance to win $25 in Bella Bucks.  Click here for all the details!

Bellariffic Friday - Mojobella Sketch 31 - Happy Birthday Christal!

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week we have Mojobella Sketch 31 to work with.


Today is extra special as it's my friend Christal's birthday today so I used the sketch for her birthday card.  Christal mentioned that she loved this image and I know she loves purple...so here's her card.


I stamped the image, Tiny Townie Garden Girl Carnation with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I added a mist of shimmer spray to the green cardbase and you can just see a bit of it.  Of course, her little dress had lots of sparkle too from my Wink of Stella pen.

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 Christmas in July!  Use any Christmas or holiday image and you'll be one more card ahead for December - LOL!

Bellariffic Friday - Free Form

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was Free Form.  It's also the first Friday of the month so that means another image on sale (20% off) for the whole month.  This month we are featuring the lovable Petunia has a Party.  


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I sponged some very soft clouds in the sky and then added a few cloud shapes popped up.  Petunia needed some grass to roll in so I added two layers made with a grass die.  

On the inside I stamped the sentiment that comes with the image.


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 Mojobella Sketch 31.

Happy Birthday Tori - Card 2

Here's the second card I made for Tori - big enough (5.5 x 5.5) for all the staff to sign it!



I stamped UPTOWN GIRL BENTLEY GETS BLOWN AWAY with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured her with copics. 

I added some Wink of Stella to the pink balloon and her dress.  I also added a few sequins/beads for some extra sparkle.

Happy Birthday Tori

Just popping in with a card I made for my fav Starbucks!  The staff asked me to make a card for their manager's birthday.  



I stamped the image "Miss You a Latte" from MFT with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I embossed the greeting onto a vellum banner and wrapped it around the card.  I realized after I made the card (it was 4.25 x 5.5) that it wasn't going to be big enough for all the staff to sign so I made another one....stop by tomorrow to see that one!

Bellariffic Friday - Shaker card or spinner card AND RELEASE DAY!!

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week the challenge was to make a shaker or a spinner card.  It was an easy choice for me because I LOVE shaker cards!



I stamped the image, The Bunny Wobble and the Peony, with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I used the matching die to cut it out and popped it up in the corner of my shaker.  The shaker was made with a scallop die and I added lots of different colours and sizes of sequins and beads.  I love that some of the stars stuck to the front on their own - LOL!  It's hard to take a good picture of a shaker card because everything falls to the bottom but here's a picture of the card laying flat showing more of the sequins. 



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 Free Form...so anything you like!

Summer Release Teaser - Day 5!

It's Day 5 of the summer release teasers and I have another card I made using the new "Cave Couple".  I love the sweetness of this image, how she's standing on tippy toes to smell the flower and her hair with the bone in is just too cute.


I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured it with copics.  I had fun colouring this and trying some black hair again. 


Tomorrow is a big day - it's Bellariffic Friday AND RELEASE DAY!  Be sure to check the Stamping Bella blog, and leave a comment for a chance to win $25 in Bella Bucks.

Summer Release Teaser - Day 3 and 3 teasers!

OMGosh, I hope you've been checking out the Stamping Bella blog each day this week for teasers!  The images will be available on Friday.  

Today I have not 1, not 2, but 3 (!) new teasers for you.  Let's dive right in.

Introducing the Tiny Townie Fairy Garden line.  I have two images from this new line to show you.  The first is the sweet Tiny Townie Fairy Garden Fairy.   All the images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella’sBestest paper and coloured with copics. 


She comes with the sweetest sentiment.  I stamped the first bit on the front of the card and the rest on the inside.



For my next card I used the new Tiny Townie Fairy Garden Sign image and created a little magical scene.  I sponged some clouds in the sky, added lots of fairy dust (glitter) and sequins.  I popped up the Tiny Townie Fairy Garden Fairy and one of a set of two little toadstools.



And last but not least, let me introduce another fab Uptown Girl....Melinda!  I love her!


The sentiment comes with Melinda.  I cut one part of it for the front and the rest on the inside.  I don't know how Emily comes up with the perfect sentiments for each of her images!


Be sure to leave a comment on the Stamping Bella blog each day for a chance to win $25 gift certificate!  See you back here Thursday for another teaser from me!
