Bella Blvd & Hampton Art Stamps

Bella Blvd. is introducing their brand new line of 
cling-style stamps by Hampton Art this week on the blog!

The design team has created some really cute, cute samples of using these on cards...
there are several ideas that I'd like to try myself :)  
Here are the two cards that I made for this week's Hampton Art reveal:

After I completed this card, the idea came to me to use the dress stamp for bridesmaid's
 Thank You cards. That's the beauty of stamps. That you can modify the colors to suit! 
I stamped the dress, first, onto the patterned paper. Next, I stamped the image again onto a canvas cardstock with Staz-On ink. I used a grey watercolor pencil to shadow in the left side of the dress. 
I also colored in a couple of the ruffles and then trimmed out the image and attached over the first 
stamped image. I just got this new embossing folder that has an inset in the center. 
I cut the patterned paper to that size and machine-stitched in place.

 Supplies: Love And Marriage: May Eighteenth, Smokeys In Love, Cute Cuts; Engaged At Last: Miniatures Stickers; Button Market: Aqua Flowers; Hampton Art Stamps: Love and Marriage

 The inspiration for this card was brought about from looking out my kitchen window.
 I love to see the blue sky, bright green grass and wildflowers dotting the landscape. 
To create my vision, I used designer tape as a pretty outline for my window; framing the blue sky. 
Next, I stamped two of the flower motifs from the "Sand & Surf" stamps onto a white cardstock. 
I used Colorbox's Very Berry and Squash and then colored in the petals and centers with
 watercolor pencils and then cut out. When using a clear stamp, I like to place a thin foam mat
 under the paper that I'm stamping on. This really does help to ensure a nice, crisp image.

Supplies:  Love And Marriage: May Eighteenth; Sand & Surf: Paradise; Designer Tape: Combo; Hampton Art Stamps: Sand & Surf

All of the newest Bella Blvd Collections have a matching set of Hampton Art Stamps:
Sand & Surf, Love & Marriage and Kiss Me!

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
