Stamping Bella Bellariffic Friday - Flowers

I'm back with my second post of the day. If you are here for my La-La Land Crafts altered frame you can find it HERE, or keep on scrollin' down... 

This week, our Stamping Bella Bellariffic Friday was all about FLOWERS! It could be the image you use, the papers, or even the embellishments. As long as it's a current Stamping Bella image and you have some kind of flower/flowers on there it's all good. 

I couldn't decide so, on my tag, I used an image with flowers, papers with flowers AND flower embellishments. I even used a flower grommet..... just to be sure to be sure! lol. 


I confess, something about this tag doesn't sit right with me and I've done it differently in my head numerous times, lol. I can't decide if I like or detest the pink flowery paper. We are our own greatest critics, huh?! 

This coming week we have another fabby sketch for you. If you would like your project featured on the blog next Friday just email your work to Emily by Thursday, February 26th.

Stamping Bella Bellariffic Friday - Sketch

Hi! I'm back with my second post of the day. If you are looking for my La-La Land Crafts Valentine's project you can find it HERE, or keep on scrollin' down! :) 

This week's Stamping Bella inspiration was a sketch

 I made this cute Kitty Bag using the sketch featuring Smarty Cat
It comes with matching sentiment and 3 mini background stamps. The sentiment could not be any more true!! 


The bag itself is a Silhouette file. It cuts both the base and the designer papers to cover it. It's so easy.. like SERIOUSLY easy. I can't believe I left it this long to get a Cameo. It is the best.machine.ever!! 

I used copic markers to colour Smarty Cat - C1, C3, B000, B00, R20, R21

This coming week we are taking our inspiration from Flowers!! (Papers, embellishments, etc). If you would like your project featured on the blog next Friday just email your work to Emily by Thursday, February 19th.

Stamping Bella NEW RELEASE - Hoppy Poppy

Good morning!! I am back with my second card for the Stamping Bella NEW RELEASE. Today I am sharing a card featuring Nice To Meet You from the Hoppy Poppy collection. She is adorable!


I chose to do a CAS card keeping Poppy on a white background. The patterned paper I used is from Simple Stories "Hello Baby" paperpad. I embossed the white background card and adhered it flat to the card base. Poppy is raised on 3D foam dots, as is the sentiment. 

You can see ALL of the new release HERE on the Stamping Bella blog, and all products are available to purchase HERE in the store.

Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful Tuesday!

My card today features Petunia & Penny take a Break, one of the new Woodsies collection stamps. These are just the cutest, and the sentiment/quote is adorable!! 


The sentiment comes complete as one quote but I cut it apart to suit the layout of my card.

WOW! Embossing Monthly Challenge - Inspired by a Fellow DT Member

Hi! Today I would like to share my project for this month's WOW! Embossing challenge which is to create a project inspired by a DT member. 

I chose Jennifer's Heart Canvas here...

and this is my inspired take on it...

I made a 5.75" square Valentine's card. I covered the chipboard heart on the front with patterned paper, sanded the edges and embossed them with Sparkling Snow embossing glitter. I embossed the With Love sentiment from Everyday Sentiments, with Ebony powder and stamped the heart with Festive Berries distress ink. 


WOW! Embossing products used:
