Bella Baby

Quick post today as my girls need a little more TLC what with sniffles and coughing so I'll have to catch up on blogging another day. I made this card for my youngest daughter's old SK teacher. She's having a baby girl in a couple of weeks so I whipped this up during the wee hours when I couldn't sleep. Darn, I forgot to take a close-up of the card.


I love this Whipper Snapper stamp "Bella" and have kept the card fairly simple. I used my Swiss Dots folder with my Cuttlebug ~ my absolute fave tool for embossing ~ and a MS punch for the doily lace border. The image was super easy to stamp with Tuxedo Memento Ink onto my new favourite paper, Beckett Expressions. I coloured the image with Copics and for a small image used 8 colours ~ E000, E00, E21, R20, R81, R85, RV10 and W0. I just love how my Copics glide onto and blend so well on the Beckett Expression white cardstock. I want to thank the super talented Sue Nelson again for introducing me to this great cardstock. It's great with Prismas and gamsol too. DP, velvety ribbon and pearls are from my stash. Oh yes, almost forgot, I sponged the outside edge of the main circle with SU's Pretty in Pink ink pad.

The photo of the card is crisper and bigger in blogger than usual thanks to Crissy. She was kind enough ~ she is such a sweety ~ to post a tutorial on how to do this here. Thanks Crissy ~ big hugs and a wave! Grab your coffee, tea and munchies when you visit cause you'll be there a while as Crissy's one super sweet, uber talented lady and her creativity will leave you ooohing and aaaahing.

Have a great inky day,
