A Stamping Bella mini release...

Good morning!

For those who may have missed it, Stamping Bella’s founder, Emily Block, passed away in November 2022. Today is Emily’s birthday, and we wanted to do something extra special to celebrate her. So, we have a mini release that includes our beautiful Forever Bella transformed into one of her lovely Uptown Girls, along with her favorite flowers and quotes. There’s also a sale happening that you will want to take advantage of. :)


Even after all these months it is hard to believe that Emily isn't here, spreading her creative sunshine all around. She always had something positive to say that would make me feel seen and appreciated. That is why it is such a joy to be creating with these new stamps that represent our dear Em. This Bundle Girl with Lily of the Valley is just as sweet as can be and I colored her into the thick layer of leaves, hidden away from the rest of the garden.


I also colored up the special Uptown Girl Emily Da Bella and paired her with one of my favorite Emily quotes that can be found in the new Emily's Sentiment set. There's also something else that makes this stamp extra special... all profits from the sales of this one will be donated to the Emily Block Memorial Fund. The fund supports art therapy programs for the children’s psychiatry department at the JGH in Montreal. Now, Emily usually had a sale on her birthday. We didn’t think this year should be any different, so between now and midnight on 5th July 2023 you can enjoy a store wide discount with a couple of exceptions. The Uptown Girl Emily Da Bella stamp is excluded because it is a charity fundraiser, and existing offers are also excluded.

Happy Birthday Emily, we love and miss ya girl!
