You may have heard the whispers about a fab new artist in the Stamping Bella camp. Well, the cat is out of the crafty bag, and we are thrilled to say that Stamping Bella are now bringing you stamps by DIANE DUDA!
I’ve been a fan of Diane’s art for quite a while. Love the messages in her work, and the sweet whimsy in her images.
There are FOUR fantastic Diane Duda stamps being released in the next week, along with some new Uptown Girls and a couple of Mo Manning cuties! The Babes are previewing the new images this week, so pop on over to BLOGGABELLA and check out the previews from the whole team as the week goes on.
For my preview card today I used one of the new Diane Duda stamps – “Life is Good”. This one just makes me GRIN! Love how joyful this image is, and she just seemed to cry out for some bright colours to set her off.
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers. The paper I used is actually a magazine freebie I had in my scrap box, I think it is by Raspberry Road. I used a combination of MFT Die-Namics Photo Corners and Dies by SCACD Garden Corners dies to embellish. I distressed the edges of the papers with an acrylic paint dabber in white, and also did some sewing!
And yes, for all you UK girls desperate to get your hands on the new release – they will all be coming to Quixotic Paperie! Keep an eye out for their arrival in the next few weeks. 😉
