Question Stamping Bella - the Bellas

Hello!

A few years ago I started a collection of Bellas from Stamping Bella. I was just on their site and was shocked to find so very few Bella stamps available and no new ones.

What happened? I love those stamps and was interested in getting some more, but so few to choose from now.

Would someone please fill me in?

Thanks in advance.

Wow... I just went to the site and see there are only 18 Bella stamps to choose from and most of them are on clearance.

I guess they are focusing their sales more on Uptown Girls and some of the other designers. I luckily have a well stocked Bella collection and am sad to see that the collection appears to be going away. I don't remember hearing anything about that, but I always seem to be a day late and dollar short when it comes to knowing what's going on in the industry.

Carol, I just went to their page and was SHOCKED as well! I have 4 different bellas to sell and wondered what the asking price was now. Anyone interested in:

billboardabella, fellabella, tinkerbella and one I have no idea what it's called, but she's going through PMS and sitting on a chair eating popcorn with a soda and candy on the floor!

stamping bella is on facebook so you could ask there are well.

i assume that a stamp line is discontinued due to lack of sales. who knows, trends cycle. wait a few years and there will probably be some new bellas.

i love those uptown girls and may need to get a few!

There's a man whose wife is a member who would love to buy diplomafella for her if anyone has it - he emailed me this summer and I thought that was so sweet

I love the Uptown Girls. They motivate me to want to learn to color better to do them justice!

I haven't bought any for a long long time and just went to the site. WOW! Its completely changed. Its now says Stamping Bella USA - this use to be a Canadian company. How sad. Oh well, I have a huge collection of the bellas that I suppose I'll have to be content with...

The owner is the same. I think she moved to the US?

I'm sure it was due to lack of sales. Yes, I remember buying Bellas from way back. But eventually I moved on to the next big thing as did lots of other shoppers. I love the Uptown Girls too, they've been around for some time now, so I guess they are the new thing they sell.

I don't think Emily herself moved to the US (at least I haven't heard her say that on FB), but I think she ships from the US now. But I could be wrong on the details.

I remember Emily explaining why she ships from the US. She said, as I recall, that most of her customers were from the US and it was cheaper for her.

https://www.facebook.com/pages/stamp...a/177073184925 <---the Stamping Bella Facebook page - you can ask Emily why the original Bellas are no longer available and no new ones are being made.

She is still Canadian and living in Canada - the company itself is now located in the US b/c it's cheaper to produce and ship there (even for us Canadians - I still get packages as fast/faster and shipping is cheaper or free depending on order size).

I noticed today in the Blitsy.com newsletter that they have a bunch of Bella stamps on sale, in case anyone wants to add to their collection!
