A Little Bit of Bella

I got my Stamping Bella order the other day and just fell in love with the new Turtle Tots images. This is Birthday Turtle Tot. Isn't he just yummy! I used the sketch from TECC56.

This is another new image from Stamping Bella called Amimal Ellie-phant. I added a little bling to this cute little Ellie-phant by adding some Bella Dots.

This last card is Peony Bittybloom also from Stamping Bella. I have had this stamp for a while and have not inked her up until now. She is just so sweet!

My New Anyas

I got my first Anya stamps in the mail the other day and today was my first chance to ink them up. This little cutie is Princess Anya. I gave her a bit of glimmer with glitter on her crown and Glimmerz Blingz on her dress. I got the lace from my mom when she started cleaning out her ribbon closet (yes, I do mean CLOSET). I have a big shopping bag of ribbon now. Yay!

Bella Sketch Challenge 64

I must admit, I have had this stamp for ages and have never inked it up until now. Don't ask me why. This card uses the sketch #64 on SCS's Stamping Bella forum. The dark DP is a digital paper pack from My Favorite Things. The image is Sistahoodabellas. I wish I had that many sistah stampers to play with...It's true that "one is the loneliest number" when it comes to stamping some days.

Mojo Monday 74

I have been trying to upload this card to the Mojo Monday blog for a while and it just keeps locking up, so I decided to just post it here for now. This is sketch 74 from Mojo Monday. I used my new Bedbug Huggabug. The colors for this card were also inspired by the inspiration challenge on Bloggabella at The picture Em posted on her blog for inspiration was a bedroom while lavendar bedding on a red bed. So who could be more perfect for a bedroom than Bedbug Huggabug!

Lizzie Anne Designs Challenge 65

Here is my card for the Lizzie Anne Designs sketch challenge. I used my Tea for Two set again since this is the only LAD set I have. The paper is from the Chocolate Kiss digit paper pack from My Favorite Things. I love this idea of printing your own paper because this way you never run out of the paper you love!

Lizzie Anne Designs Challenge 64

I colored this tea post a few weeks ago and it was too loud to go on the card I made, so I put it on the table and left it. For the Lizzie Anne challenge from last week I decided to put it to use. Since the coloring was so loud, I decided to make the rest of the card as neutral as possible. I like how it turned out.

High Hopes Challenge 17

High Hopes challenge for this week was a sketch challenge. I love sketch challenges so I gave it a try. Here is Olivia Octopus. Isn't she sweet? I used scraps of blue paper to make the card and used an old corner punch for the image. There are Stickles on her tentacles.

Weekend Cards

I made a few cards over this past weekend and am just now finding the time to post them here. The first card is a preview of the new set being released tonight by My Favorite Things. It is called Digital Girl. I got my set early through their VIP Package. The last Friday of each month you will have the chance to purchase the MFT VIP Package with unreleased goodies, but it is a limited time offer each month. In my VIP Package I got the Digital Girl set, Summer Adornments bling, and the summer ribbon bundle. I used the new ribbon on this card.

This next card uses last months release from Hanna Stamps called Aerobics Riley. I stamped Riley twice and mounted it with foam tape.

This next one uses Taylored Expressions' Love Is Sweet set. I used the Cupcake Challenge sketch from Taylor's blog.

This last one uses the Viva la Verve sketch for the first week of February. I used the Verve set Jeremiah 29:11, which is the verse we used when we dedicated Dylan. This has to be my favorite verse!

Thanks for stopping by!
