Stamping Bella Sneak Peeks Day 1 - YAYYY!

Hi Lovelies...

Yayyy.... it's sneak peek time for the new release at Stamping Bella!  

Now this post is picture heavy - as there are so many lovely stamps to be released on Monday 22nd March - I promise you'll love them all!  So grab yourself a cuppa, put your feet up and read on!

My first card is using Rainbow Tiny Townie - she's sooooo darn cute!  I coloured and fussy cut her, then cut some puffy cloud borders for her to walk through...  creating a Distress Ink background where I've stamped the sentiment that comes in the set.

Card Info:

Glitter and Gems

Next we have Tiny Townie Unicorn - and of course, in my view, she had to be coloured pink!

Again, I coloured and fussy cut the image, also using cloud border dies for the background.  I used a stencil for the rays - first of all using Distress Oxides for the base, using a deeper pink through the stencil to create the rays.  Again, the sentiment comes along with the image.

Now we have some of my favourite Curvy Girls - I LOVE these girlies!

First is Curvy Girl Big Hug..  she's so sweet giving her little girl the biggest hug!  I've given the youngster red hair - just like my gorgeous little grand-daughter.

Again, I coloured and fussy cut the image... then I blended Distress Oxides through a rectangle stencil.  I adhered the image to the card and popped the sentiment in the coloured panel...  with some gems to finish.  I've got to say, I LOVE that sentiment and it is sooooo darn true!

For my next card, I've used the fabulous Curvy Girl Mom - I thought the image would suit a slimline card and I love that it turned out well, even though not easy to photograph!

More fussy cutting followed (yes my scissors were hot by this time!) - then I created a pale pink blended background before stencilling the falling hearts in a deeper colour.  I faded out the colour lower on the card so it would give the image a place to 'stand'!

And now for something completely different... I have a fabulous Oddball for you! This is Oddball Edgar Allen Poe...  he's fab!

This is my final fussy cut image for today...  but he was sooo worth it - with his raven sitting patiently on his arm!

Again I used a stencil for the background, and popped the sentiment in the white space.
