CardMaker ~ Stamping Bella Blog Hop

  Welcome to a CardMaker Blog hop!  Today we are focusing on the fabulous stamps from Stamping Bella
For my card, I used the stamp Milton... and isn't he just the cutest thing! I stamped the image on patterned paper and paper pieced the image to make it look like this adorable mouse was floating through the clouds with his balloon! The sentiment was stamped on a die cut and adhered with dimensional dots.

Stamping Bella has some adorable stamps and is hosting a giveaway on their blog! For more details on how to enter for a chance to win check out their blog.
Be sure to check out the inspiration from the rest of the team. I know that I am looking forward to seeing what everyone created...the next stop on the hop is Michelle Boyer.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Hello My Friend


 Today I have a super simple card that I made using some dies from The Stamps of Life. I love this die cut sentiment: Hello My Friend Circle Dies and used the layering dies (Large Rectangle Dies).  The rectangle dies are awesome because is absolutely NO measuring.... it is all done for you!!! The patterned paper is from the Hello Friend Collection
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Look for Rainbows!

Today I am excited to share with you that I have been asked to join the CardMaker Blog Team again!  My first post is over on the CardMaker blog and hope will check it out as well {direct link~HERE}.
For my card here today, I used upliftingwords2hear and stamped the banner portion a second time onto a scrap piece of pink patterned paper from Wishes Collection (paper piecing it a bit using dimensional dots). The flowers are from mums2stamp and the little yellow flower inside each mum is actually from hexagons2love (super cute to stamp those in the center as it adds a pop of color). I used a stipple brush to create a background  as it looked quite bland all white and added some pearl bling,
 I am entering this into the CAS(E)#131 challenge.
Here is the fun sketch:

Today I have a post over on the CardMaker blog and hope will check it out as well {direct link~HERE}. You will see another Stamps of Life project featuring a favorite technique of mine :)
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

And this second card uses the same ink but added the Hello Friend patterned paper. The scalloped rectangle die cut is from Sizzix Happy Birthday Step-ups Die Card Set. I am entering this second card into the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Celebrate.

Whale Always Love You


 Today I have a quick card I made using the Heart Step-ups Card Die Set and the adorable whale2stamp stamp/whale die set. These Step-ups are incredibly fun to use and ALL the dies come in the set which makes creating this card easy peasy!! I used some Candy cardstock and Guava ink from The Stamps of Life. The ribbon is also TSOL and will be available soon I am sure.... It makes creating the perfect bow so easy!!! The patterned paper is called Wishes Collection and will be available quite soon :)
Here is a close-up of the "step-up" part:
 Look at all these dies included:
