Sample Cards and Lattebella

The Tiddly Inks and Chichiboulie fairy cards from my previous posts were 4 out of 5 cards that the owner of a local stamp store asked me to create. She just started carrying the Stamping Bella line and wanted to have cards on display so customers could see some finished samples. The last card I made featured Lattebella and one of my favorite color combinations - pink and brown.

Stamps: Stamping Bella Lattebella
Paper: Bazzill, GP White, Unknown Patterned Paper
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Technique: Prismacolor Pencils blended with baby oil
Other: Cuttlebug, Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities, Prima flowers, rhinestones, pop dots

My First Blog Post

Well, I guess I should starting posting since I created this blog a few months ago and haven't done anything with it. Here are two Stamping Bella cards that I created recently. My favorite Stamping Bella images are from the Chichiboulie and Tiddly Inks lines. (I'll post my Chichiboulie fairy cards tomorrow.) I discovered Christy Croll's artwork on Etsy sometime last year I think and loved her hedgehogs. Then Stamping Bella started making stamps designed by Christy and I was ecstatic. I'm just hoping that one day she'll design a hedgehog stamp. (Please!)

The first card uses the image Jumping for Joy and the second card uses Best Friends Forevah.

Images colored using Prismacolor pencils and blended using baby oil.

Thanks for looking. I welcome any comments.
