I'm Seeing Spots

Bella Birthday Spots!

I made a couple cards last night. I had already stamped and colord these Bellas a few days back but just finally got around to putting them on a card. The sentiment is also from Stamping Bella.

This one I did for Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge - SC170. Go on over there and check out all the great cards everyone has done. Maybe you will want to make one too :)

Recipe: I used Groovy Guava Designer Paper, Certainly Celery and Whisper White Cardstock from Stampin'UP!; Bazzill Bling Purple Cardstock. Stamping done with Ranger Adirondack Pitch Black. Colored with Prismacolor markers and Copic Marker for her skin. 2-way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds to add lots of sparkle. Tacky Tape down the middle of the present and then more Glitter. Cutting her out was a challenge...I don't know if I'll do that again. I attached her flat on the purple strip, but had to put teeny tiny little strips of foam dimension under her feet and legs to keep them up. The purple layer is upon Dimensionals. The Brads are from Bazzill. The layer with the flower from Bazzill is flat. Stampin'UP! silver cording wrapped around the button and the layer. I also used 2-way glue pen and Dazzling Diamonds on the dots of that layer.

This next card I think turned out really cute! When I found this dotted paper I knew it would work perfect with this Bella. The paper is from Paper Salon by Karen Neuburger - hip-hip-horray: mini dots collection. It's a nice thick double-sided paper...more like cardstock. The back side is the very pale moss green color that I used to layer under Bella.

Recipe: Cardbase is Stampin'UP! Whisper White Cardstock. Purple is Bazzill Bling Cardstock and Patterned paper is from Paper Salon. Stamping done with Ranger Adirondack Pitch Black. Colored with Prismacolor markers and Copic marker for her skin. I embossed Happy Birthday with Clear Ultrafine Matte powder from B & J's Art Stamps. Robins Nest Dew Drops attached with Crystal Effects. Main purple layer is up on Dimensionals.
