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?)



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

Here’s Angelabella’s card:



Here’s TracyMACabella’s card using Scout





I wanna EAT him.  (i say that when things are so cute I have no words.. not because I enjoy exotic cute little animals.. please do not send any hate mail LOL)



see the bottom of the post for Sandy’s AMAZING video colouring him, using her HEX CHART and showing you how to doodle a little sign around him.  SHE’S AMAZING!

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?



Here’s DANABELLA’s card using 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.


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

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



Here’s Sandy’s video.  I hope you subscribe to her amazing Youtube channel and of course immediately buy yourself a HEX.  I promise you won’t regret it 🙂


WANNA WIN these 3 stamps???  Place a comment here for a chance!

Show some love to sandy and let her know you came from here to buy the hex or watch her videos.  I Love when sistahs in the same industry SYNERGIZE and work so well together.. like peanut buttah and JELLY… yes there always has to be a reference to food.  LOL

Meet Gracie by Christine Grove.  I told a little tale about her on facebook LOL.  She is just the cutest little girl out there.. her socks.. her expression..  I think she will evolve into a line of her own called “goodnight Gracie”… I used to love watching George Burns show (yes I am THAT old) and he would end each show by saying goodnight Gracie after his wife Gracie Allen.  I don’t know WHY I think of them but I do.   So sistahs… you see now how each of the images I launch is just a little piece of me.  A piece of my memory..something that touches me somewhere.. :).. I love them all!


If you check our PARKED page at stampingbella.com.. there is a little extra image there featured too :)…  It will be up a bit later but keep checking!


Only 5 more sleeps until my BIG announcement, my NEW website and the NEW RELEASE!! WOOOHOOO!!


Ok without further ADO… meet GRACIE.  Let me know what you think and you may win her!

I hope you love her  ALMOST as much as I do 🙂


Mwah to da sistahs who love da crunchy sockies.
