Yup, you guessed it - I got some more Bella stamps!! WooHoo!! I got nursabella, flowahbella, javabellas, stampingbella (of course!), and parisbella. I am having THE hardest time limiting myself - I want them all!!
I've been in a bit of a stamping funk for the past couple of days - I just haven't really "felt" it if you know what I mean. But after my envelope of Bellas arrived I thought it was high time to get back in the groove! And what better way to do that than to participate in this week's SCS Color Challenge.
So I had my colors picked out, and saw all my Michaels $1 stamps sitting there (as I had yet to put them away - as usual!) after making those 2 quick cards - and this baby stamp caught my eye. Then the wheels *really* started turning - and this card was the end result!:
STAMPS: Nursabella by Stamping Bella, a*muse small oval, Baby sentiment by Kolette Hall (Michaels $1 stamp). CS: Whisper White, Not Quite Navy, Taken w/ Teal, Night of Navy. INK: Basic Black, Taken w/ Teal. ACCESSORIES: Prismacolors and Gamsol, SU Small Oval Punch, Navy Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, CuttleBug A2 Baby Embossing Folder, Not Quite Navy Brads, Dimensionals.
I stamped the bella first, then masked her and stamped the sentiment and the a*muse small oval (I don't even bother putting that stamp away anymore - it just sits on my desk right in front of me). I used Prismacolors and Gamsol to color everything in, then doodled a border around it all w/ my SU! Basic Black marker.
I created the "tab" using my SU! small oval punch, the tied some Navy Organdy ribbon into a knot and adhering it w/ a mini glue dot.
The embossed BG was created using my CuttleBug A2 Baby embossing folder.
I think I got my groove back ROFL!!!
