It’s that time of the week again. I’ve got my spotlight out and I’m shining it on an amazing stamp set – this month’s “Stamp of the Month” offer. Each month a stamp set is offered with a fantastic discount. You’ve got until the end of TOMORROW ( 30th November 2022) to grab this month’s offer, and I’m here to show you why you need it. If you already have it, I’m here to remind you why you needed it, and inspire you to get it inky!
I’ve got a gorgeously festive card and colouring video to share with you today. But first, don’t forget that until 2nd December 2022 you can stock up on amazing stamps including the one in today’s post with 20% off!
Before I leave you with Tamibella’s amazing card for today, I would like to thank you all for the love and support over the past week! Seeing so many of you shopping the Black Friday sale is wonderful, knowing that Stamping Bella stamps will be winging their way to new homes, ready to be inked up, coloured in, and shared with love.
Apologies if you encountered problems using the website yesterday – the server was struggling due to the amount of people checking out the sale! We got it fixed and hopefully things will now run smoothly.
If you haven’t had chance to shop the sale, there is still time! The offer goes on until 2nd December 2022. SHOP HERE.
I will hand you over to Tamibella now for some utterly gorgeous inspiration.
Tamara here with you today with my latest Stamping Bella card featuring Bundle Girl with a Christmas tree and a Birdie. Sentiment “We wish you a Merry Christmas” comes in the Christmas Camper stamp set. I think I have enough Christmas cards for this year but I still have some of my rubber stamps unused and I just might ink them and make some more. lol
I think I made a lot of them this year and I really like every one of them, because Stamping Bella’s images are simply the best!!
A bit about today’s card … I stamped my image with Archival Ink – Jet black on 300g hot pressed watercolour paper and then coloured it up with Distress ink pads. I used one of my rectangle dies to cut it out.
Distress ink pads used for colouring:
skin: vintage photo
cheeks: worn lipstick
outfit: barn door, dusty concord
tree: rustic wilderness
ornaments: fired brick, fossilized amber, spiced marmalade
background: tumbled glass
I added a few small and tiny snowflakes around the image and added some tiny glittery dots with Stickled glitter glue to make it look like snow. Design paper chosen is an old one from my stash, but I absolutely love the colour of it.
Elaineabella here. We don’t have a new tutorial from our Sandiebella today, so I’m here to remind you of some of her previous AMAZING festive themed Thursday makes, which all come complete with fantastic step by step instructions. We love our Sandiebella – she’s brilliant, and so generous with her time in creating easy to follow tutorials for us each week.
I’m still utterly in love with all of the owls from the last release. Right now, I’m thinking this particular stamp will be on my desk again soon, this time for a Christmas card. Watch my Snuggle Owlies Copic Video below to see how this adorable image came to life.
I mean, come on…the little owl leaning in. I love him.
It’s that time of the week again. I’ve got my spotlight out and I’m shining it on another couple of amazing stamp sets – I’m here to show you why you need them. If you already have them, I’m here to remind you why you needed them, and inspire you to get those stamps inky!
Make sure you check out all of the other amazing CHRISTMAS/WINTER stamps in the collection too for more fun, and our awesome SENTIMENT STAMP SETS for the perfect sentiments to go with all of your stamps.
Thank you for all of the love for our beautiful Emily on yesterday’s post. We at Stamping Bella, and Emily’s family and friends all appreciate it so much.
Normally I would have a Marker Geek Monday post for you today. The card was done well before the weekend, but the video is still unedited and I’m not quite ready to do that just yet. Thankfully our amazing AmyBella had a Scenic Saturday post that should have been shared on Saturday, but in true BELLA STYLE, we’re going to share it with you today. Emily would be laughing, I’m sure, because I’m the organised one that would roll my eyes at SCENIC SATURDAY ON SUNDAY. Well, here I am with SCENIC SATURDAY ON MONDAY – laugh it up lady!
Jokes aside, I’m really sad Emily didn’t get to see this one. Because she LOVED Scenic Saturdays, and was always excited to see what Amybella would come up with next. I think we all are, so I will hand you over to Amy.
The Christmas season just wouldn’t be the same without this rite of passage playing out at malls and festivals in the weeks leading up to the big day. It certainly isn’t the same experience for every kid who climbs onto or is placed on Santa’s lap. I never had any problems with the big guy myself but I can remember younger siblings and kids in line, breaking out in tears when it was their turn to tell Santa what they would like for Christmas. These two cuties seem to be keeping it together though as they read off their wish list to Santa. To dress up the background and make it look like this visit is part of a larger holiday festival, I masked off Santa and the kiddos before stamping just the decorated tree from the Holiday Owl with a Star set on either side of them. I then masked off the trees and stamped the Christmas Village Backdrop even further in the distance. Now it looks like this annual photo op is taking place in a snowy park square with all of the holiday hustle and bustle taking place just off screen. The sentiment from the Christmas Sentiments set keeps the message of this card positive and happy. So, the next time you want to create some Christmas card magic why not work some stamping magic and layer up your background elements for a fun new twist in your scenery? 😉
