I'M LOVIN THE BELLA'S RIGHT NOW. CONGRATS ON THE HITS

I've sent an email to Kimberly requesting her snail mail address. And hey, look how close I am to 15,000 posts!! Maybe some more Kimmie's Kandy in the near future...??


Well, I've had quite a bit of fun breakin' in my new Bellas!! So here are a couple that I made the other day. Firstly, I LOVE Grumpabella. The only thing different between us is that I don't use curlers!!! And I picked up this sentiment totally with her in mind!!



I started out with the patterned paper 'cause I just love the colours and figured they would be good for bathrobes and coffee! I stamped the Stampinbella Funky Frame (which I LOVE) and then stamped Grumpabella in the middle. I used my trusty SU markers to colour her in and shade her. I used Regal Rose, Close to Cocoa, Certainly Celery, Blush Blossom and Pretty in Pink, then shaded around the right side of her with Sahara Sand. I mounted the pp on Close to Cocoa and wrapped some perfectly matching grosgrain ribbon around it and matted the whole thing on Regal Rose. Love that colour! I added some bronzey coloured brads after using the ticket corner punch and some yummy Prima Daisies with a brad. I stamped the sentiment directly onto the pp with Chocolate Chip ink and it says: "With enough caffeine, I could rule the world!" I pop dotted Grumpabella and she's all done!



Next, I had been itching to use this scrumptious patterned paper that I got at my local scrapbook store. Don't ask me what the company is, because it doesn't say but there are several designs to coordinate with it and I got them all!! So I started out with the paper and grabbed my matching SU markers in Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie, Taken with Teal, Sahara Sand, Ballet Blue and Almost Amethyst and then some So Saffron for the popcorn. This is PMSabella but I just feel like she's maxin' and relaxin in front of the tube watchin' Dancin' wit da Stars or somethin'! Can anyone relate?? Anyway, I coloured her in and added the sentiment, 'Chill Out' with my Karen Foster Snap Stamps and doodled around the edge. I also added some sparklies with my Stardust gel pen. She's matted on Pumpkin Pie and Certainly Celery and popdotted on the main card. I wanted to do a different size so the whole card is actually 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 in Taken with Teal. I added some dots around the edge with my black Sakura glaze pen and some photo corners in Certainly Celery. I also had some matching prima flowers and added them with an antique bronze brad. I REALLY like the way she turned out!! If you've never done a square card, give it a try. They are super fun.

If you've never been to the Stampingbella website, go have a peek. They are a riot and Emily's always adding more. Which Bella resembles you or your personality the most?? I love Grumpabella and Elizabella but I'd have to say (and my husband would agree with me) that Jammybella was made for me!!!

Now........what shall I play with today???? Things that make you go HMMMMMMMMM!!!

On the frame for the bella in the robe - did you stamp and then cut out or does it fit the oval punches that are so popular right now? Love your cards!

I love your Bella cards too. Super cute. My friend let me stamp some of her Bellas and I made a few cards this weekend. I hope to get some of my own soon.
