{Bella Style}


I attended a shoebox swap with a fun group of SCS ladies. We have these shoebox swaps once a month and we always have such a great time, not to mention all the cool stuff we create. I uploaded most of what we did onto my gallery on SCS, but something wonky is going on and the gallery is showing some of what I posted and others are nothing but a big red "X". I tried to fix it and I think I may have just messed it up more. I got so frustrated that I gave up for a little while. If you want to try to see what we did yesterday, check out my gallery here. But, let me warn you, it seems to be really messed up at the moment. Anyway...back to the reason for this card...
One of the cards that we created yesterday was a Bella card. Now I'm a huge Bella fan and own several myself, so today I broke out my own Bella and made this fun card. I first stamped my Bella, then put a mask over to to create the oval that she is standing on. Everyone has been talking about all the oval stamps that make these Bellas really stand out. Well, I don't have any oval stamps, so I used my large oval punch to create a stencil, which I dobbered with Really Red. Bella's pants and the corner checks are really old Creative Memories paper. I am trying to use this stuff up, as is evident from the last two or three cards that I've made. I hope you aren't getting sick of it yet.
Stamps: Haute Courture and Emmybella; Card stock/paper: Really Red, Basic Black Checked paper from Creative Memories; Ink: Basic Black, Really Red; Accessories: Large oval punch, Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol, Black & Red Gingham ribbon from SU!, and brads from stash.
