New cards and a package from my Bella Sistah!!





Hi everyone!! I received a package in the mail from my Bella Sistah Simone on Monday and I thought I'd share a pic of all the goodies she sent me. She sent me some cool rub-ons, flowers, paper frills, fozz-felt strips, paper, crushed velvet brads, cute felt stickers, gemstones, a Veggiebella stamp (I've been wanting that stamp for a while), flower rain dots (not pictured...sorry...they're cute though), and a great card. I can't wait to use everything!!

The first card I created on Monday and I made it for my mom. I used my new Halobella stamp and You're An Angel sentiment. I stamped the image using Memento Ink and embossed it, used tombow markers and a paintbrush to colour it in (I love how the dress turned out). I also used some crushed velvet flock on the inside of the angel's wings and on one of the clouds. I added some clear baubles (from Stamping Bella) and some Prima flowers to complete the card (I like the finished result).

The second card I created last night at a card class. I used a stamp from the Penny Black line and used Memento Ink. Liquid Applique was also used to create the dots on the image. I chalked with green around the side of the card and chalked the dots in pink. The sentiment was run through the Cuttlebug and pop-dots were used to make it stand out. I really like this card (it's simple, yet cute).

The final card was also created at a card class last night. Using Versamark ink, I stamped the image and used 4 different colours of embossing powder. After the image was embossed, I used tombow markers to fill in some blank spaces and create some depth. The brads were also embossed (I seem to have a problem with getting brads to line up straight). I like how the card turned out and can't wait to try this technique again.

Thanks again for stopping by. Hopefully I can create some more cards this week (seeing as I am on vacation). Have a great rest of the week everyone!!
