June 23rd, 2014

So sorry for the delay sistahs,

I received a call early Wednesday morning from my mom that my grandmother had peacefully passed away.  Needless to say I was devastated.. grabbed my son and drove 6 hours to be with my family.  Needless to say it was one of the saddest weeks of this Bella’s life.   I just got home last night hence the delay in this post.  Please bear with me through this difficult time :(.  I should be back to my old self soon.

For this weeks challenge we had a sketch

June 13th, 2014

Hiya sistahs!  So today is actually friday and I actually found a half an hour to spend time with you :).. It makes me so happy.  Today I am picking my kids up early as Tyler has a hockey tournament.. so we will be traveling back and forth all weekend.  I recall Ryan telling me hockey was over and beginning again in september.  UMMMM… notsomuch.  hmph.

I thought I would share an image with you which will be for sale soon :)  Her name is SERENA and she’s obviously holding a SIGN.. LOL.. Im so clever when I name them no?

Anyway I thought I would fill her sign with words.. and I may change the words up from day to day.. we will seee. but she is inspiring me.. and I am going with it!

t’s see what our baberoonis came up with shall we?

 

what the heck is a COLOUR MAP you ask???

June 12th, 2014

Sistahs,  Elaineabella and I have put our heads together and we have come up with a FANTABULOUS ideaR… wanna hear?  k.

why it’s Colourmaps of course!

We will slowly be introducing colourmaps which will be included with every current image we have.. this IS a work in progress and right now we have  UPTOWN GIRL REILLY and UPTOWN GIRLS the THREE AMIGAS available.  These colourmaps will be available to those purchasing the images as of today.  I will update in the descriptions of the stamps if there is a colourmap included or not.  We will also be offering different downloadable colourmaps for a nominal fee in the near future.

Ok.  I took a breath… and now I will tell you what a COLOURMAP is.

Throughout my almost 10 years of Stamping Bella I have always gotten the questions.. how do I colour these images?  What do you recommend?  Copics?  how do they work?  what colours do I use?  what colours blend together?  HELPPPP MEEEEE…

Well Elaineabella and I have solved this problem :)

and this is what a colourmap is

COLOURMAPS

So what you will receive with the stamp is a copic “guide” with blendable colours and inspiration for blends in conjunction with our images!  Seriously.  This is brilliant.  no?

Oh and you will notice we have a new logo :)… There is a new website coming soon with a great new look.. easy navigation along with a release and some amazing news and product…

so bear with us sistahs during this CUH-razy time… we are still here making some magic happen

here’s a closeup of our new logo coming soon to a theatre near you :)

logofinalfinalCOLOR

Making cards is cool sistahs.  Really cool.

mwah

Em

Would love to hear what you think about this idea

it’s Bellarific Sunday! LOL
