Bella Style

BIRTHDAY BELLAS

This was a fun card to make. I really needed to make something that had LOTS of sparkle...and these Bella stamps were just perfect for that. Bella stamps are so fun and easy to create with! I was just looking at the Stamping Bella website...and I see there are a few new stamps! One that caught my eye is called lattebella. I think I "need" that one :)

You really need to click on the pictures to see all the glitter and sparkle up close!

Go ahead.....click.....you know you want to! LOL




The main image is called shopabella. The stamp on the cardbase
is called not so bored border. The sentiment stamp - wishing you a birthday - is actually 1 stamp. I stamped the first line on the front and then by hand added the 3 little dots. Stamped the other 2 lines on the inside and also added the 3 little dots.

Here's a couple closeups of the main image.

This is the back of the card. Stamp is called cardbackabella. Really cute bella with her rolling craft tote in one hand and a stamp in the other!
