Another wonderful week of yumminess with Michelle! I am so happy to have her!
Hello there, Michelle here and I am delighted to be back sharing another project as guest designer with Stamping Bella. I love creating full scene cards and the Tiny Townie Blossom Loves Balloons stamp is perfect for this. Isn’t she just so cute, flying along with her balloons?
I stamped her on to a panel of white cardstock and then masked her off. I added some cloud masks to the background and then went over the piece with my Copic Airbrush using various shades of blue Copic Markers. I then removed the masks and added some colour and definition to the clouds with grey shades. Blossom and her balloons were also coloured with Copics. The sentiment was stamped to the side with black ink.
Since the image panel has a lot going on, I decided to keep it really simple and just adhere it flat to a black card base. This ensures the focus is kept on the image. Thank you so much for popping by today. See you next Wednesday!

It’s Crazy Tuesday sistahs.. and you know what that means? It means 3 hand picked images at 3 hand picked CRAZY prices! Why do we host this wonderful event once a month? To THANK YOU.. our faithful sistahs for your loyalty and for your business. We want everyone to have the opportunity to feel the magic of stamping. Yes STAMPING IS magical. Inking up the stamp, carefully pressing it on to chosen material, gently lifting that stamp up and seeing the impression? NO. BETTAH. FEELING. You really feel like an artist.. and that is one helluva feeling. Trust me. So if you have a friend teetering on the edge.. wanting to stamp but unsure, SHOW HER or HIM this newsletter… give a little push. Tell him/her to try.. and I PROMISE.. BELLA PROMISE that they will never turn back. I haven’t 😉 and I get bored easily. This has been 11 years and counting and I just keep getting more and more excited. I hope you do too. Please share the love of stamping with your friends and family.. let them see why we are as “crazy” as we are.. it just takes once to get hooked 🙂
Here are our offerings for today!
This offer lasts until MIDNIGHT tonight and then POOF it’s gone!
also remember that MISTER POSTIE SIGNS OF SPRING has a corresponding “CUT IT OUT” die which is available too!
Today is of course the first Tuesday of the new month, which is… CRAZY TUESDAY! Today I will be throwing the spotlight on the Crazy Tuesday offers for today and at the same time showing off how brilliant the Bellariffic Babes are.

Happy Saturday everyone! This week our fabulous Sandiebella has a technique to share for Stamp It Saturday! If you missed last week’s post from yours truly (Mirror Stamping), this is a new regular feature here on the blog designed to help you get the most from your stamps and inspire you to try some fun techniques in the process. Read on for Sandiebella’s post featuring one of the gorgeous new Danielle Donaldson stamps, showing us how to use clear embossed outlines for an easily achievable soft “no line” look.
Hoping you had an inspirational/craft infested/stamping hysteria type of week 🙂 I am trying to gather my wits together and slot in some ME/STAMP HYSTERIA/COLORING time. I really don’t know what stamp hysteria is… but it seems like something I would be involved in.. just putting it out there lol
We have a great announcement today! I am SO SO excited to share the news!
We have a new Baberooni, Christine Levison!
I am so excited.. her energy is CONTAGIOUS.. her love for all things PINK.. divine.. but most of all she LOVES our images.. is passionate about them and I think the love comes out in her work.. just like the rest of our baberoonis. WE are a very special close group 🙂 and I LOVE IT!

I hope you are enjoying your week so far! I wanted to introduce you to our guest designer this month, Michelle Short. UMMMM.. where do I begin with this one.. I started admiring Michelle’s work on Instagram and have been hooked ever since.. there’s nothing like a beautiful clean card.. and Michelle’s style fits the bill. I think I drooled a little when I would see her work.. but please don’t tell my kids.. they already think I’m a senior LOL. You should DEFINITELY follow Michelle’s Instagram feed @thecardgrotto so that you can share in my drool problem n’k? You can also follow Michelle on her amazing blog
No without further ADO.. check out this AMAZING card she made using our KITTY and MOUSIE CELEBRATE a BIRTHDAY STUFFIES
now enought of my blurb..
Hello there, Michelle here and I am delighted to be joining Stamping Bella this month. I absolutely adore Stamping Bella images, they are wonderful to colour. Bellas were the first images I used when I first discovered Copics and they have been a firm favourite ever since.
My card today uses the adorable Kitty & Mousie Celebrate A Birthday stamp. How adorable are the Stuffies range? So cute! I coloured Kitty and Mousie with Copics, making sure to add some blue behind them so that they pop from the card and create a little scene too. I added shimmer pen to the banners to give a little something to the image as well.
The image was simply added to a purple card base with foam tape. I love to give Stamping Bella images centre stage. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit today. I am looking forward to sharing my next project with you next Wednesday.

Hey everyone! Elaineabella here with the weekly Spotlight On feature. As with last week I’m going to completely ignore that lovely enticing new release and show you some inspiration for another oldy but goody. Hopefully I’ll inspire you to dig out the stamp if you already have it or to come to your senses and add it to your collection if not!
