New Card and Bella News...

Is it possible to use a stamp too much...lol?  Well I'll find out with this one... Little Birdie by Jane Davenport  by Stamping Bella.  I just love her.  Can't find it on the site just now so I can't provide a link for you.  It just may be out of stock at the moment.


I wanted to paper-piece her and loved this beautiful small-patterned polka dot paper by Pebbles (has gorgeous texture too). 


I added sparkle to her dress to the dots only and broke up the sentiment and layered the words individually. I used Spellbinders Labels 8 with Decorative Elements Labels 8.  (I think that's the shadow of my head in the picture -- LOL -- just noticing that now... so much for attention to detail).

Kept the inside simple (for whatever the birdie said... lol) and lightly stamped the image again in SU Groovy Guava.



Now for some Bella News!!  We've had a new BABE join our Bella Design Team:  Kim O'Connell.  Kim officially will start on December 1st, but she joined us early for yesterday's Bellariffic Friday challenge.  She really does create such beautiful works of art... please check out her blog here... you're in for a treat!  Also, she's offering blog candy on this post and you don't want to miss out on this - trust me!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!
Carla.

Beautiful! Love the die and all those little pearls, just lovely! Now I'm wondering what the little birdie said! :)

That's such a cute stamp, how could you NOT use it many times? I like the paper piecing idea and she must look very cute in real life :)

Carla I am sure I commented on this post but then again maybe not. You have changed your photo and threw me.......!!
I love this I am not a stamper but I do buy stamps that I really like. I think I would be tempted by this. Beautifully coloured, and put together.
