Bellarific Friday Challenge

Hiya Sistah's,

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend and had lots of time to stamp. Me , not so much as I taught a stamping class at Bella store on Saturday all day and then saw my gorgeous adorable grand-daughters later on. Today, I am trying to come up with cards for my next class, but I am having blank moments.

Did you check out Stamping Bella there are over 20 new releases . They really are yummy and fabulous. I loooooove them and would have such a hard time just picking one of them. So guess what, I own them all :o).

Don't forget to also check out the Bellarific Friday Challenge on The deal is that you have to submit your entry to Emily before 5 EST on Thursday, and she will post all entries on Friday. One winner is picked and will win some Bella Bucks.

Here is one of the cards I submitted for last weeks challenge and will post the other one tomorrow. This is one of the new releases and this is Kenya Ketto . Kenya and Mazie are 2 of my favourites, although I really do love them all. I decided not to use any layers and make a pretty and crisp card focusing on Kenya cause she is so adorable . The colours for the challenge were Sage, Turquoise and Yellow. I left the yellow out and focused on the turquoise and sage colours, as they are colours I use all of the time, and I really like the combo. The wave shadow stamp ( I LOVE SHADOW STAMPS) was inked with VersaMagic Sage ink and then I glittered all around it to give it a finished look. I really love the font of this sentiment and thought it would be a perfect stamp to colour and to fill in some of the white space. I used sheer sage ribbon and turquoise ribbon to finish the card. I am very happy with how it turned out. Let me know what you think okay!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I would love to hear from you

Have a great week

Great card Nicky.......The challenge was real fun and loved the colours we had to work with. Can't wait until the next challenge is posted.

I LOVE this card, Nicky! Kenya Ketto was one of the stamps I bought on Saturday largely due to the inspiration on this lovely card of yours, plus it totally reminds me of my granddaughter! The shadow stamps are really cool, too. I guess I'll have to make another visit to do more shopping.
