Something Adorable This Way Comes!

I’m delighted to say that I can finally share a little peek at some of the colouring I’ve been doing “behind the scenes”! Good thing too, as I don’t have anything else ready to share just yet.

You may have heard/guessed that there is a new release on the way from Stamping Bella. As usual I have been working away on colouring the product images for most of the new releases, and it has been torture! Why? Because they are so awesome/cute/fun/adorable and I have been itching to share them with all of you. Thankfully Emily aka slavedriverbella has started the previews today.

Meet “Blossom” one of eight adorable images in the new “Tiny Townies” collection. Keep your eyes peeled, because her friends are even more adorable. Seriously.

For the full “Tiny Townie” story and a chance to win the Tiny Townie Blossom Loves Balloons stamp, pop on over to BLOGGABELLA to read Emily’s post and leave a comment. The winner will be announced before the release which should be happening around 1st June 2015.

UK/Europe readers – as you may be aware, my online store is closing at the end of this month and so I will not be stocking the new release. I will hopefully have some news for you on an alternative stockist when the stamps are released, so don’t panic! 😉

I am rather excited to share today’s post with you! Today is release day for a fantastic range of images from Stamping Bella and I have got an adorable card to show you featuring one of my new favourites.

As you may be aware I do the colouring for many of the product images on the Stamping Bella website and the new product packaging. During January I had the privilege of colouring the product images for most of the new release, so I can absolutely vouch for how much fun all the new images are to colour! Read on to get all the info and check out my latest card.

In 2012 I created a fun colouring tutorial for Some Odd Girl Stamps featuring their Winter Friends clear stamp set.

Marker Colour Combos: Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Savannah Brunette & Blonde Hair

Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Savannah has a Star - www.markergeek.com

As promised I’m back today with a couple of cute Christmas cards featuring the brand new Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Savannah has a Star stamp that I used on yesterday’s card.

I really wanted to show a couple of different hair colour combos for Savannah today, so I didn’t use the full image. If you’ve been visiting my blog for a while you may also be aware that I do have a fondness for butchering cropping Uptown Girl images. Muahaha! This is a great way to stretch the stamps and get more use out of them, especially at Christmas when colouring a full sized image can be more time consuming than you might like. To see the full Uptown Girl Savannah has a Star image please check out my Merry Christmas with Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Savannah post from yesterday.

Now that Halloween is over, it’s time to launch in to the Christmas cards and crafts! This year I’m more prepared than in previous years, so I will have lots of inspiration to share. I’m not completely done with autumn though, so expect a few autumn cards here and there this month. I’m in no particular hurry for winter. 😉

Today I’ve got a little card to share featuring one of the new releases from Stamping Bella. When Emily showed this Uptown Girl image to me I gasped. Definitely one of my favourites from the release. Along with my card I also have a little card-making tip for you, so keep reading!
