WELCOME TO BLOGABELLA

Zig markers.. my order.. a little bit of DIS and a little bit of DAT

Hiya sistahs!  Why does it feel like Friday when it’s only Tuesday ? LOL.. long week already!

First of all, I wanted to share with you that I TOO wait desperately for my order.. LOL.. as desperately if not MORE desperate than you (is that possible?).  Was so excited to open my mail box and got a box FULL of DIS(this)!

haul

so much fun!

Is anyone addicted to YouTube like I am?  OMG.. I’m SO addicted.  Every night Youtube is my best friend .. that and my Ipad and a pair of headphones :)

I bought these markers a while ago… started watching videos.. and now hooked on playing with them LOL…

I watched THIS VIDEO by Jennifer Mcguire.. she has two more … careful.. she’s an enabler LOL

So I decided to play!  The first colours I always try are portrait colours.  They are my fave.  And since I got my big box yesterday.. I was SO excited to pull PAMPERED out and play with her :)

So in this picture, my ink smeared a bit which made me scream and curse.. but then I quickly got over it because I knew she is JUST for PRACTICE.  (It took me about 5 minutes to  calm down and stop cursing LOL)

Here i used FLESH and PALE PINK.  this is my new GO TO face colors :)

pamperedweb

then I coloured the rest in with other combos I tested.. and then it began to bleed.. and not behave (watercolor has a mind of it’s own). so I just showed you the towel and the face and cucumbers below :)..I also tested the PINK on her cheek which is not the right pink but that’s ok! now I know!   I will continue to  play.. and practice and try to tame my temper :)  I love that they have a teeny tip.. you can get them in all of da little bella nooks and crannies.  LOVE!

zigweb

This is the 60 set above.. they are so bright and vivid.  Just gorgeous.  I can stare at the chart all day long :)

I will try to practice some more and share some more with you throughout the week!

Mwah to da sistahs who love to CULLAH! (colour) LOL

it’s bellarific friday sistahs and I miss you!!!

Hiya sistahs!

well this release was just amazing.  You guys went insane LOL.. which validates to me that you loved the images :).. I love that you love the images.  For REALS.

This week’s bellarific theme was ANYTHING GOES!    But for our Baberoonis it wasnt’ lol.. It was a theme as we do every first friday of the month.. a theme using our Stamp of the month!  This month’s stamp of the month should be called stampS of the month!  I put all of our BIG WORDS on sale for 20% off because I just couldn’t pick one.  SO… If you ever wanted to try these images now’s the time!  You can find all of them HERE.  When you see the words in pink on the image, they were made smaller for the inside of the card.  Sometimes you just want to put a little something in there and can’t think of the right words.  right?

Ok so let’s see what our Baberoonis came up with shall we?

Meet our Gamblaritas.. the newest addition to our “SENIOR-ITA” line.. the visors.. the wine.. Oh.. Ingrid in the middle is on a bit of a diet.. so she’s sipping her spritzer.. she didn’t tell anyone about the chips she has hiding under the table.  SHHH.

I had so much fun with them.  Oh, except for the part where I had to FIND those little MINI playing cards in my stash.  you didn’t wanna SEE da bella searching for them.  There may have been a few harsh words said ..  Ingrid even offered me a few chips to appease me.  Didn’t help.  But I FOUND THEM!!

Hiya sistahs!  2 more days until you can all be unleashed like MONSTAHS!

I am SOOO  happy you love this release  ALMOST as much as I do *wink*.. I love hearing your stories.. why you love the images.. how you can relate to them.. how they tell YOUR story.  To me, they are not just little pieces of RUBBAH.. they are pieces of my heart and I am so thankful I can bring joy to your smooshie faces that I would hug and kiss if I saw you.. (is that wrong?) LOL.

I kinda saved Tiny Townie Hayley for today..  I really don’t know why.. LOL.. I just wanted to “SAVE ” her.. LOL.  I LOVE her and her sentiment and I think she applies to every sistah out there.. young or older, plump or skinny.. wrinkly or smooth.. doesn’t MATTAH… if we can’t find our own HERO.. we need to be our own.  Amen sistahs.

Hope you love superhero Hayley as much as I do :)

Sistahs!

What am I gonna do on Monday, when the release is here and I don’t talk to you anymore? LOL.. Oh one of my goals is to blog more frequently.. even if it is a little sample.. a little link.. SOMETHING.  I love knowing you are there :)

So I told my Jayden to read the post and the comments yesterday.. she LOVED the post but of course I got.. “whaddya mean, you don’t love us all the time..LOL”.. I had to advise her it was just a JOKE.. silly girl.. and then she said “WHADDYA MEAN I’M A NUTBAR??”… So I banned her from the blog.  LOL.  She’s done.  I said don’t you appreciate mommy spotlighting you and creating stamps after you?  She says yes but I’m a nutbar.  So that’s where THAT went.  Then I had the  boy child saying, I don’t understand why you always feature JAY… do you love her more?  So this is it sistahs.. an ALL ADULT sistahood.  They are NOT invited to my party NO MO’.

Today is a GREAT day!  We have 2 AMAZING, whimsical, ELEGANT stamps to present.  Yes they are ALSO my favorites but I’m “playing it down” so I don’t annoy anybody LOL.

Today we feature 2 new CLOSEUPS.  What I love about the closeups is that they have a little “frou frou” but they also capture the simple feeling.. the moment.. a bit of a “snapshot” of a time or celebration.  The details are as amazing as ever  and they are SO MUCH FUN to COLOUR!

I hope you love them as much as I do and I hope they are part of your “favourites” list :)

as you know.. all images are coloured in  by our amazing Elaineabella (@markergeek on instagram)

Introducing….. drum roll please….

“I DO”.. see? just them holding hands tightly sets the tone of what’s to come.  I love her bow.. and how her hand is cupped.  And of course.. the sentiment :)

IDO

here are some sample cards using I DO by our amazing DT!

Here is Shelabella’s card using “I DO”.. i see her dress as vintage satin.. dreamy and delicious..

idomichele

Here is Sandiebella’s card  a more modern look.. looks like organza and a crisp beautiful white

idosandy

And our second closeup sneak peek is called “IN LOVE”.. And the quote?  sighhhhh. and her little bun? and the way his hand is wrapped around hers again?  I love that.

inlove

Here’s Danabella’s sample using them :)

inloveDANA

Just GORGEOUS!!

Ok that was a mouthful!!!

lesliebellainside

Tell me Stephabella’s card is not INSANELY amazing?  She used 4 stamps!  She used – top left is UPTOWN GIRL MADISON, top right: Uptown girl VIENNA, bottom left Maybelline LOVES MAIL and bottom right is AVA.  Love this card!  I think she needs to mail it to me.  Like right now. LOL.  I always say, using portions of your stamp keeps the stamp fresh and fun to use!  Look at your stamps in a different way.. are there elements you can punch out and use?  That’s a good challenge actually!

Sistahs,

I seriously have a problem.  A BIG ONE.  I think I am FICKLE.  Or undecided.  Or pressuring myself for no reason.  Why oh why do I FEEL like I have to have favorites in this release? LOL.. Like a sistah said in the comments.. you can’t have favorites.. its like choosing one child over another (there are times… ok I won’t get into that .. too dangerous.. and sometimes they read my blog .. HA!).. but I DO feel like I have to have a favorite…. and the bottom line is, when I put a line of images together (trust me sistahs.. between working closely with the artists to get the images “just so”.. then researching and trying to find THE PERFECT sentiment..  then NAMING them), I have so much time and love invested in these images that seriously, I LOVE THEM ALL EQUALLY and ALL for different reasons.  It’s the truth!  There is not ONE image that I have released that I did not ADORE.  They all mean something to me.. they all tell my story (as I mentioned in my first blog starting this release -I hope you’re all still with me!)

Ok so here are my FAVORITES… for today!  And I think you will love them just as much as I do.  they are really AMAZING and FUNNY.. and CUTE.. and Whimsical.. ahhhhhh! here I go again.

First I would like you to re-aquaint yourselves to  our famous Petunia.  She just seems to find herself in different “situations” shall we say.  I am not quite sure who found who first, but she managed to steal this little townie’s heart and boy are they headed towards some BIG adventures.. I feel it in my bones.  They even have matching headbands.. not sure how they coordinated that 😉

Here’s Petunia gets a PIGGY back… GET IT?  PIGGY BACK?  (i kill me LOL)  This is a great image for friendship.. for room mates.. or just like that.. it’s such a playful image.. that’s what I love about it. And the sentiment?!  LOVE.

petuniagetsapiggybackKERRIINSIDE

ok Seriously.. is Petunia gets a PIGGY back not TO DIE FOR??!?  Those faces!! Sheesh .. i gotta stop.

BUT I CAN’T!!!!!

hehehehe.  This next image is close to my heart.. ya know why?  Because it was inspired by my little FREE SPIRIT Jayden.  This girl is such a character I tell ya.  She marches to the beat of her own drum (hmmm I wonder who she takes after?)… She is BRAVE (definitely not me).. she is CURIOUS (ok maybe a little me)… She loves to try new things and EXPERIMENT (TOTALLY ME) …and she is definitely not a “girly girl”.. (I have to play with the dollhouse myself.. hmph).. And I embrace all of her little shenanigans …  So when she said “mom, I LOVVVE science.. I wanna be a CHEMIST”… I ran out and bought her a kit.. Well.. you had to see my kitchen table.. and HER.  She became INSANE.. LOL.. like a real mad scientist.. her hair all over the place.. goggles.. Well, YOU be the judge.  Take a look at my Jayden.. LOL..

jaydenscience

Is she a nutbar or what?  You’re probably wondering  .. WHY oh WHY Em, are you sharing this annoying and long story with us ?  Well, glad you asked!  LOL. Just wanted to show you that LIFE and MY STORY inspire Stamping Bella stamps.. K?  YOU READY FOR THIS ONE?

Meet Sage the Scientist :)

sagelovesscience

SEEE??? And that SENTIMENT??!?!??!?!?!?!?!   OMG I would send this card to EVERYONE I MEET ON THE STREET I love it so much LOL.  So my Jayden became OUR Sage..  I love her so . very. much.  I guess she has a special place in my heart and now you know why!  This would be great for any great friend (or maybe not so great so at least they can smile -you know those types of people who could use a smile LOL)  and little adventurous girl in your life… Adult, little.. doesnt matter.  I try to make these images universal :)

Hiya sistahs :)

I am SO SO SO excited for today!  One of our Colouring HEROS is featuring a video using one of our new releases!! WOOHOO! Not only is she featuring one of our stamps.. but she is also teaching how to use her new copic HEX CHART when coloring.  She is a PHENOM teacher.. so if you haven’t met her, without further adoooo… let’s meet SANDY ALLNOCK!.. Now I spoke about this miraculous chart a little while ago and on FB and then,  when Sandy contacted me wanting to help out in the new release AND TEACH how to use it, I was beyond ELATED.. Like I mean.. BEE-YOND.  If you’ve been following me over the years, you KNOW that I do not promote items I do not use personally, nor items I do not believe in… That’s a NO NO in da bella world.

I have to tell you, personally, that I bought this hex chart and plopped myself in front of the TV one night with ALL OF MY COPICS and my children staring at me in AWE and in SHOCK at a) how many markers an adult can own and b)  that I had PATIENCE to fill out this chart.. cuz THIS bella suffers from ADD and CANNOT FOCUS EVAH.. LOL

Here’s a pic of my markers and my chart: (please refrain from any HOARDISH comments n’k?)

HEXCHART

 

Seriously, this chart has CHANGED MY LIFE.  It has made colouring more enjoyable, adventurous and CONSISTENT… It has made me reach out further than the combinations I have done in the past.  IT IS UNBELIEVABLE!  It doesn’t matter if you have 3, 33, or 333 copics,  it’s a phenomenal, indispensable, INEXPENSIVE (this is key here people) tool to carry with you whenever you are ready to colour.  Mine is next to me at all times.  RUN.. I say RUN (said in a FOGHORN LEGHORN voice.. remember him from bugs bunny?  Yes I watched too much tv as a child)  sistahs to buy this download.. print it on your Bella’s Bestest Paper or any copic friendly paper.. and you will be on your way to a WHOLE new colouring experience.  SCOUT’S HONOUR.  hmmmm  … Scout’s honour.  Funny I should mention SCOUT’S HONOUR.

Today’s releases are featuring Christine Groves illustrations which are QUIRKY.. FUN.. and just plain ADORBS (as my 10 year old would say).. Every image of hers sparks an emotion.. a thought.  That’s why I LOVE Christine so very much.  I hope you love these images as much as I do! I think THESE are my favorite LOL.

meet Scout’s honour.  When I saw HIM I almost collapsed from cuteness overload.  His body.. his handkerchief.. his glasses.. his backpack.. I could go on and on.  It’s a perfect friendship card.. a perfect card for a little scout in your life.  Just   plain perfect in my eyes.  All images were coloured in by our very own IHCC (In house colouring counsel)  Elaineabella.. aka @markergeek

Here are some sample cards using our very own SCOUT

Now for da next sneak peek.. another one I couldn’t resist.. for any little boy in your life.. or silly man (I have one of those at home..LOL)… And those fat, squat little ducks looking at the rock star.. oh and the spiked HAIR-S??  I just COULDN’T contain myself and HAD TO HAVE the image LOL.  Ok fine.. I’m Crazy.. ok? isn’t admitting it half the battle?

Meet SILLY GOOSE

For our LAST image reveal today.. we have NACHO (Ok I am patting myself on the back for his name.  It takes me a long time naming these stamps believe it or not.. this one to me is just PERFECT).  I don’t even think I have words to describe him.  I’m just gonna stop here and let you judge.  LOL .  When I look at Nacho, I am speechless and giddy.. LOL.

nacho

see what I mean? LOL.. just looking at him is ’nuff said.

Here’s Tracybella’s card using NACHO.. LOL. those eyeballs?
