Emily’s Birthday Surprise Release & Sale!

Today would have been Emily’s birthday. The firsts are always hard. For us, the first blog post, the first release after losing Emily, and now the first birthday she isn’t here to celebrate. Her family and friends have had to go through all of those firsts and so much more without her, and our thoughts and love are always with them, as I am sure yours are too. If you would like to leave a comment in support, I know it will be seen and very much appreciated.

Over the past months we have been working on something extra special to honour Emily on her birthday. This extra special mini release took a lot of love and strength to create, and we hope you will be as thrilled with it as we are.

All of the stamps shown today are available right now in our WHAT’S NEW section on the store.

Most years on her birthday, Emily would share the celebrations and have a sale. We didn’t see why this year should be different. So, help us to celebrate Emily and stock up on stamps!

*The Uptown Girl Emily Da Bella stamp is excluded from the sale as she is a charity fundraiser. Sale does not apply to existing special offers.*

Our amazing Design Team and special guests have all been working hard creating gorgeous samples with the new stamps. We have SO much inspiration to share with you today, you will definitely want to grab a drink and some snacks as you check them all out below. By the end I have no doubt that you will be absolutely itching to go and get inky.

Sneak peeks and release posts were always Emily’s favourites – she loved to share all the inspiration with you and shout about how wonderful the stamps and our Babes are. I’m with her there. Creating the stamps is one thing, sharing them is where the magic truly is.

UPTOWN GIRL EMILY DA BELLA

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you will probably have seen Emily refer to herself as DA BELLA. Just like that, in all caps. Oh boy do I miss the ALL CAPS messages. This Uptown Girl is totally DA BELLA, I cried when I saw the sketches for her. Our wonderful artist captured Emily so beautifully in our Uptown Girl style.

Our beautiful, creative Emily, surrounded by some of her favourite things. The card she’s holding is a nod to her two very favourite things in the whole world – her children Tyler and Jayden.

This stamp is extra special. All of the profits from sales of Uptown Girl Emily Da Bella will be donated to the EMILY BLOCK MEMORIAL FUND. In honour of Emily’s passion for art and her creative spirit, the fund supports children’s art therapy programs. 

Our samples for this release include some true to life versions, and some not so true to life. Emily would have loved this. She was all about people expressing themselves and colouring however they like. So when you get your Emily stamp, go wild, use bold colours, and share that stamping magic. Let’s fill the world with colourful Uptown Girl Emilys!

EMILY’S SENTIMENT SET

I bawled my eyes out creating this set. Emails and messages from Emily were sprinkled liberally with these phrases, and I miss seeing them from her so much it physically hurts.

You absolutely knew if a message started with “LET ME TELL YOU” or “OMG, YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE!” it was time to settle in for the ride. What perfect sentiments for fun cards to send to a friend or loved one.

Stamping is Magical – Emily would always say this, and tag her social media posts with it. She wasn’t wrong. Stamping is what brought Emily into my life, and into so many people’s. Stamping has given me some of my favourite people, and a truly wonderful community to be a part of. A #SISTAHOOD.

Every time I stamp a sentiment from this set, I’ll be thinking of Emily. I hope you will too. She created something truly beautiful in Stamping Bella, and we’re all so grateful to still be sharing that.

Card Samples:

First up we have a special appearance from an original Bella Babe, our amazing Paulabella. I know how much Emily had missed having Paula on the team in recent years, although she very much remained our Paulabella. I’m so happy that Paula could dust off her pencils for this one. It means a lot.

The rest of the team and our guest designers are no less special. Emily truly loved her Babes, and was so proud of this team and the way everyone always works to bring the stamps to life and inspire. I am immensely proud of how they have all come together to create such a special collection of cards for today. Absolutely OUTSTANDING. The love in this post is just…well… I can’t even.

Emily’s favourite flower was lily of the valley, so our next two stamps are in honour of that.

BUNDLE GIRL WITH LILY OF THE VALLEY

We already have a Tiny Townie Garden Girl Lily of the Valley stamp, but we absolutely needed a Bundle Girl! Isn’t she ADORABLE?

Card Samples:

 

LILY OF THE VALLEY

Emily wanted to add more standalone floral images to our collection, so here’s what will hopefully be the first addition of many to come.

Use this one on it’s own, use part of the image, use the whole image, use it as part of a scene. Colour it, don’t colour it. Pencils, markers, watercolour, inks… Whatever you do, it’s going to be beautiful.

Card Samples:

 

That’s it! Probably our smallest release ever, but it’s pretty perfectly formed. We hope you agree. Thank you SO MUCH for sticking with us, and helping us to continue with Emily’s dream. We appreciate it beyond words. YOU are absolutely OUTSTANDING.

MWAH!

January 2023 Release Peeks Day 2 – Oddballs Go Prehistoric

EDIT: STAMPS ARE ALL NOW AVAILABLE TO ORDER in the WHAT’S NEW section on the Stamping Bella store.

It’s the second and final day of previews for the new release! Keeping it short and sweet for you this time, as we know it has already been a long wait since our last release. If you missed the first day of peeks, you can check out that post HERE.

Today we’re sharing some amazing new ODDBALL STAMPS! You know I love the Oddballs, and I also have a soft spot for all things dinosaur, so I’m in stamping heaven with these. It looks like the Babes have been too, because their cards are DINOTASTIC. Prepare to be amazed. If they wowed you yesterday, they will knock your socks off today! I know that Emily would be SO PROUD. They truly show how these dinos can work for all sorts of occasions and cards, and can be soft and pretty, earthy, or bold and bright. LOVE. As Emily would say: OUTSTANDING!

Our special guest designers for this release are the amazing SANDRA PETERSEN and SUE HASTEAD. A big thank you to them for joining us with some absolutely stunning work.

The new release will be available to order on the website on TUESDAY 31st JANUARY 2023 – not long to wait!

We also have a new DINO SENTIMENT SET to go with all the images today. Of course we also have an existing range of SENTIMENT SETS to help you create cards for every occasion, as well as BACKDROP STAMPS to set the scene if that’s your thing! In fact, we have a NEW backdrop stamp today, which you will see on many of the cards below!

DINO SENTIMENT SET

CAVE BACKDROP

Our older CAVE KIDS BACKDROP is also great to pair with the new Oddball Cave Couple and Oddball Dinos (as well as the Gnomes as seen yesterday), but for this release we really wanted an actual CAVE. Here it is, and it is perfect!

Now, let’s get to it and take a look at all of the eye candy from the BABES and our SPECIAL GUESTS!

ODDBALL CAVE COUPLE

Just look at this pair! They’ve had it with prehistoric life. This is a set of two stamps, so as you can see in the samples below: use them together, use them separately, arrange them however you want to create a scene.

Card Samples

Card above by guest designer Sandra Petersen. Sandra also used our ODDBALL GNOME KIDS stamp set to add the snail and toadstool to this brilliant scene!

 

 

ODDBALL DINO TRIO

This is one of my personal favourites from the release. Oddball Dino Trio is a set of three separate stamps, so the possibilities are endless! So many ways to use them – all on one card, create scenes with them and the other stamps, use them separately. Whatever you want!

Card Samples

ODDBALL MAMA DINO & HER BABIES

SUCH a great image. Use this one for Mother’s Day, for fun scenes for any occasion, or just because it’s cute… As I mentioned, I’m a dino fan, so in my craft room this one is going on some cards AND getting stamped in my journal, along with the others!

Card Samples

Amy also used a sentiment from our CURVY GIRL MOM stamp set.

Tamara used a sentiment from our CURVY GIRL BOY MOM stamp set.

ODDBALL SOLO DINO

How’s that for inspiration? I’ve got so many ideas for using these new stamps, I can’t wait to get back in the craft room and play!

Just ONE MORE SLEEP till you can order them all!

MWAH!
