it’s Bellarific Friday sistahs! Our DT THEME? Use a backdrop!

Hiya sistahs!  Hope you had a great week!  I have been hibernating as the weather has been HORRENDOUS.. cold and snowy and just EW.  I have also submitted our newest release.. 46.. count ’em 46 brand new images coming your way in the upcoming weeks! SO EXCITED!

For this week’s Bellarific Friday, our Design Team has been challenged to use a BACKDROP in their work.  Backdrops have been created to just give a tone , backdrop, scenery to your card.. colour it, don’t colour it.. use a piece of it or the whole thing.. it’s a BRILLIANT addition to your stamp collection… I LOVE THEM and apparently so does our DT!

Take a looky

Shelabella used our CORKBOARD BACKDROP.. just giving a little hint of what can be hanging in your office or room.. pictures of friends.. inspiration.. I LOVE this backdrop.  Michele ‘pinned’ our UPTOWN GIRLS SNAPSHOTS I HEART YOU to her board 🙂  LOVE!

Spotlight On: Love & Valentines at Stamping Bella Part 1

It’s Spotlight Tuesday time again! The perfect way to add some cheer to a grey mid-January week. I don’t know about you, but I’m indulging in a mug of hot chocolate and checking out lots of Stamping Bella inspiration. As January is ticking along, Valentine’s Day will soon be upon us. So, I thought this would be a great time to take a look at all the love themed stamps in the Stamping Bella collection. If Valentine’s Day isn’t your thing, you should still take a look as all of the stamps can be used year-round – Emily makes sure to give us love themed stamps we can use whenever. Love isn’t just for February 14th, right?!

Marker Geek Monday: Colouring Tiny Townie Huggy Friends with Copics (video)

Happy Monday! Elaineabella here with the latest Marker Geek Monday post, so even if it isn’t actually that happy, it soon might be. 😉

I had intended to show you something else today, but I haven’t quite got my lighting/desk/camera setup right and so didn’t manage to film anything over the weekend. I do however, have a new video to show you featuring the colouring of one of the latest images I did for the release. Fingers crossed my plans will be a little more successful this week!

It’s BELLARIFIC DT FRIDAY sistahs! Check out the inspiration

Hiya sistahs,

Hope you had a great week!  Today is a “snow day” and the boy child had an exam which has now been deferred to next week.. how happy do you think he is? LOL

So for today’s Bellarific Friday, we challenged our Baberoonis and Fellarooni to use an ‘older’ stamp from our VAST collection.. basically a stamp other than those from our newest release… let’s see what they came up with shall we?

It’s our last WONDERFUL WEDNESDAYS WITH Francine Vuilleme.. FOR NOW LOL

Hello everyone! It’s Francine from Switzerland here with one last guest designer spot for Stamping Bella’s Wonderful Wednesday!

I’ve created this winter card:

www.stampingbella.com: Rubber stamp used WINTER BACKDROP, card by Francine Vuilleme

I decided to use the wonderful Winter Backdrop stamp as a main and focal image. I first made a top-folded card base from white cardstock. I sponged the top of the card front with blue Distress inks to get a beautiful gradient from blue to white. I then stamped the image on white cardstock, colored it, created a gradient for the sky using Distress inks and blending tools too and cut around to get a square image. I die cut two scalloped frames from white cardstock that I glued on top of each other and attached the square image behind the frames. It looks a bit like a postage stamp, right? I fixed the frame to the sponged card front with foam pads for more dimension.

Did you see January’s stamp of the month? It’s the Winter Backdrop stamp I used on my card! That means: 25% off, all month long! Yay! Don’t miss the offer! If you want to get the stamp, it’s now or never LOL!

That’s all for me now! Thanks so much for all the lovely comments you’ve left on all my guest spots during the last weeks! I enjoyed playing with these fabulous stamps. Thanks also to Emily for having me as a guest and for being so generous!

Hugs from Switzerland!
