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.

Card: Merry Christmas with Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Savannah

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

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!

Congrats with Uptown Girl Brigitte

I’ve got a very quick card to share today, featuring another of those gorgeous Uptown Girls from Stamping Bella.  This time, I’ve used Brigitte.

I went fairly clean and modern with this one, using a speech bubble die to create the top half of the card front, and a piece of red cardstock with a stencil and some gold ink to create the lower part.

WOYWW #254 – A Different Workspace

Wednesday…we meet again! Time for another WOYWW over at Julia’s Stamping Ground.

These photos were taken yesterday, but my “workspace” for today will look very similar.  I’ve taken to the sofa, to catch up on some colouring and de-stress.

I have a pile of Stamping Bella images to colour, and some Make it Crafty images to give me a break from colouring character images.


While colouring I’m listening to an audiobook via Audible, which is something I have been doing a lot this year. I’m revisiting old favourites while colouring and crafting, so that I can enjoy them again without impacting on my time to discover new stories. I’m enjoying it a great deal!

Here are some of the results from my colouring session yesterday.  I’ll be working on more Uptown Girls and hopefully finishing off the Boot House today.

If you like checking out colouring progress pics, I tend to share more of them over on Facebook on my Marker Geek page.

For those that are interested, you can find both Stamping Bella and Make it Crafty rubber stamps in my store Quixotic Paperie.

Happy Wednesday!  I’ll catch you later with some more creative fun. 🙂
