Another great day at the Bella store



I have been so busy making samples for Emily's gorgeous new stamps and loving every minute of it. Go over to her Blog at http://www.stampingbella.com/
and check out the new stamps and the samples and let me know what you think . The cards always look so much better in real life, you can't always see the glitter and sparkle on the cards.

On the Happy Birthday heart card I started by making myself a template of the heart and then I stamped the Happy Birthday 3 line over and over to make it look like one large stamp. I just love the 3 line stamps and use them all of the time. They are so easy to align and make a wonderful background. I then stamped the Juicy Chubby Heart in red versa magic chalk ink and really liked that it was transparent enough to show the words . I wanted to add some more embellishments and aside from the rhinestone added the clipiolla on the side of the sentiment.

The Ballerina card I used My Minds Eye patterned paper and loved the combination of the orange and blue colours. I coloured the ballerina with mineral spirits and Lyra coloured pencils.

Some of you inquired about the golf bag stamp that I used in the last post , if you want it please contact Emily at http://www.stampingbella.com/ and she will tell you where to find it on her site.

I have also been really busy getting ready for a new class that I am teaching called Cuttlebug your Art out. I sure hope they like it..

Love your cards. The heart card is so cute. That is a great idea to make your own template.
