Bella's Birthday

It's not really Bella's birthday, but the stamp set I've used is called Bella and Friends and it has a number of delightful images of this sweet puppy. I've included part of the wreath-like stamp which is stamped on red on this box above. I masked out the 'p.s. I love you' and popped the little cake from Bella & Friends in there instead. The stamp set above, is Seasons of Whimsy and it's a Hostess stamp set from the Holiday catalogue. I'm looking forward to having some free time next week to stamp and watercolour some of those wonky ornaments. You can add this stamp set to your $250 order using your Hostess dollars to pay for it.

 A card like this doesn't really take too long to put together, especially as I have a lot of card pre-cut to size. I keep Whisper White handy cut to 10cm by 14.3cm - easy if you have the Stampin' Up! trimmer. It has clear measurements in metric and imperial, and both a cutting and scoring blade. I always have card bases cut and folded ready to use, but because this card front was also matted, I cut the white card back another .2 cm. Half a centimetre would also be a good option, so long as your measurements are the same on the 2 sides of the rectangle.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous was the stamp set I had been using this week, preparing samples for my Spring Has Sprung classes. If you are interested in those, there are details under 'classes' at the top of my blog page. Two Friday night classes are close to full, so I have advertised Thursday 19th October at 7pm. I could possibly do a Saturday afternoon if that suited you better. Again, just get in touch.

All the colouring on this card has been done with Stampin' Up!® Watercolor pencils and a blender pen. It gives a fairly subtle and fail safe finish. If you are thinking about shopping in my online store, and your order is less than $250, when asked for a host code you can add the letters below. I post a gift to you (something from the catalogue) in appreciation. If your order is $250 without shipping, then you will be asked to select items for yourself to 10% of the value of your order.
