Chick and Bunny Wobble

I happened upon the Cool Chick stamps from Stampingbella and knew immediately that I needed to color them. I posted one card using Mail Chick last month. Now I’ve completed another featuring the stamp Chick and Bunny Wobble and using a slightly different color combination on the chick this time. I’ve added another color map so that you can follow along.

Sending Hugs!

Spent yesterday with the wonderful ladies at Photo Scraps and this is one of the cards that I prepared for Demo Day. It features Stamping Bella’s Mail Chick stamp. I love this stamp because it’s easy to color and can be used for many occasions – valentines, encouragement, thinking of you, etc. I paired it with the Sending You stamp set by Avery Elle which also includes sentiments that cover many occasions.

Thankful to Have You in My Life

I’ve been a fan of Stamping Bella for awhile and even bought a few stamps earlier in the year, but I’m just getting around to actually coloring any of them. This Tiny Townie is a particular favorite so with pumpkin season upon us, it was time to get coloring!

These Lawn Fawn plaid papers make mixing and matching patterns so much easier. One paper for the front and a coordinating paper for the inside.
