Stamping Bella Flower Card

I absolutely LOVE this stamp from Stamping Bella. After the cruise, I had to come home and place an order! I am so twitterpaited that I got this stamp, I am sure I will use it a lot!

Anyway, I made this card this past weekend for a couple of peeps b-days. Did I say how much I LOVE this stamp? I really liked how it turned out. I used SU Tempting Turquoise, So Saffron and white. I used the color pencils we got on the cruise with the mineral spirit technique we learned. I added some stickles on the flower petals and added some of Bella's baubles as well. The flower is a Bazzill and matched the SU So Saffron paper perfectly. I layered using my nestabilities and used my swiss dot folder to emboss ( a great idea I saw Maria from LSC use on one of her cards, thanks!). I also added a little ric rak ribbon too by Bazzill. The picture doesn't even do this card justice, as it is adorable.

Thanks for looking! Merry Chirstmas!

Don't you just love the mineral spirits and those crayons, I am making some baby annoucements with them and love how easy they are to use! Well done my friend! Hope you had a great Christmas!

I just LOVE the card, because I got one in the mail on Saturday, which was my birthday. Thanks a lot Joleen, and keep the creative juices flowing. I'll be following your inspiring examples, and lovin it. Praise be to the CRUISE GODDESSES for that wonderful week. P.S. I love your pix of your stamping room. That's inspiring me too. I'll send some pix to you if, and when I'm done.
