Today I’m sharing some inspiration for using the new Stamping Bella Christmasgiftabella rubber stamp set, along with a festive version of my Copic Pleats & Folds step by step guide and colouring video!
Stamping Bella Holiday 2016 Release:
The latest Stamping Bella release includes some fantastic Christmas images. One of my favourites is the new Bella V2.0 Christmasgiftabella. Absolutely gorgeous! There is a coordinating Cut It Out die available for her too, which is very handy when it comes to Christmas crafting – any and all timesavers are welcome. The less time I have to spend fussy cutting, the more time I can spend colouring. I think you can guess which activity I prefer. 😉
Stamping Bella Christmasgiftabella Card:
The sentiment I used comes in the stamp set with the image. I simply stamped it then cut it apart to fit my card design.
I didn’t have any black cardstock on hand, so I die cut the bottom layer from Make it Colour Blending card and coloured it using a black Copic marker. As you can see from my blog post Merry Christmas with Uptown Girl Savannah (includes step by step guide), I love doing this! It means I don’t have to worry about having lots of different colours of cardstock on hand, and I can always have perfectly coordinating layers.
Colouring Christmasgiftabella’s Dress:
I thought it would be fun to create a festive version of my guide to colouring fabric pleats and folds, featuring Stamping Bella Christmasgiftabella. You can of course colour her dress more simply, but it’s fun to play with creating some detail!
Below you will find a colouring video showing me colouring the bottom part of her dress in real time so you can get a really good look at my process, followed by a step by step guide for you to reference!
