I know this is a horrible picture. I will try and upload a better one tomorrow. It is so glam too! I am one of those people that really don't like alot of the cards that I make, but I absolutely LOVE this card! I started off buy inking up Cosmobella with some black Staz On and stamping the image on some Prism white cardstock. I colored her in with my Aquarell Watercolor Pencil crayons and used my Auquaflo painter thingy for the first time! How have I gone without it for so long? My designer papers are from the Basic Grey Collection Perhaps. This wasn't a specific card for anything so I thought that the Live It Up sentiment fit it perfectly. That is one of the Studio G stamps from the Michaels $1.50 sets. Those sets are great just for all the little sentiments. I thought that Bella looked so glamorous that I added the 3 jeweled brads from Generations. The background pink cardstock is from Bazzill. Like I said this is one of my favorite cards I have made so far. Bella just makes it so easy!

This is the Mrs. I started off by embossing the background with the cuttlebug folder which was a chore as I don't have a cuttlebug yet! I used my good old original Sizzix! I had some fun trying to figure it out but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do! I love the look so much and I could only afford the embossing folders not the machine! Then I decided to ink up my new Let it Snow set from Inque Boutique . I was kind of hard to color her as she is all mostly white. ( any other color you know you are in trouble!) So I colored her nose and put a little color on her branch arms with my Aquarell Watercolor Pencils and kind of blended it a little bit. I also added a little bit of blue to the bottom of her so it looked like she was sitting on some ice. I also inked up the edges of all the white cardstock for a more frosty feeling with Baby Blue Versacolor. The ribbon is from American Crafts. I topped it all off with 3 snowflake brads from Making Memories. Hope you like!
This is the first set that I picked out. Isn't it cute? I thought it would be a good choise with the holidays coming up and all. This set is called Let it Snow. Can you beleive that I got this set of 21 stamps for under $11.00 CAD? That is the best part.
If you have Christmas images you need Christmas saying so I couldn't give up this set too. It is a mini set even though you cannot tell from the pic. It is considerably smaller and cheaper. Under $3.50 CAD. WOW! The bonus part is there are 19 stamps to this set. This set is called Mini-Christmas. I should be set for Christmas stamps for this year but I am sure I can find more.
So, want to know how I managed to 3 items at the store? Ah, this Surfafella is for Trevor! I cannot walk into Urban Trends Scrapbook Co. and not walk out without at least one Bella / Fella. I love them all.
I am off to ink up some of these great new stamps. I hope to have something for you later!
