This past January, at Winter CHA, we were excited to announce that our new cling stamps would be licensed and manufactuered thru Hampton Art Stamps. The first three sets to be released coordinate with the Love and Marriage collection, Sand & Surf collection, and the Kiss Me collection.
Our Card Designers have had some time to get creative with these new stamps, and we will be sharing some of those cards with you, both today and tomorrow.
“Jar Of Hearts” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I am so loving the new Bella stamps! For this card, I chose the new Kiss Me stamps. I stamped the four different conversation hearts in colors that coordinate with the Kiss Me collection (I adore those colors together)! I embellished the card with some Designer Tape and a White Crochet Heart.

“So Glad We’re Friends” card, by Carina Lindholm.
I have said this before but I LOVE clouds. So I was jumping up and down with joy when I saw that there are two cloud stamps in Bella Blvd’s new stamp collections. On this card I stamped the smaller cloud directly on the card and the bigger cloud I stamped on patterned paper and cut out. I adhered the clouds to the card by using pop dots.

“Wish You Were Here” card, by Carina Lindholm.
On this card I stamped a bunch of arrows from the sand & surf stamp set on different patterned papers. I cut them out and adhered them to the card pointing down on my sentiment.

“Congratulations” card, by Shellye McDaniel.
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.

"Congrats" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I have to admit that I am not an experienced stamper and the new Bella Blvd "clings" stamps from Hampton Art kind of scared me at first. How the heck are things supposed to work??! After a little help from "Google" I quickly learned that they work just like acrylic stamps (you use a clear block and they "cling" to it!) but have that good ole rubber stamp quality. Very cool! On this card I used the heart stamp from the "Love & Marriage" set. I stamped the heart on a couple different patterned papers and then cut out the hearts to make a fun border across the card. Thanks for looking!
