Won't you tell him please to put on some speed....follow my lead....oh how I need....

Hey yall, have you been missin' me? I'm sorry I've been so quiet...life at my house has been busy! I did have a chance to make a card yesterday for my Bella Bash Challenge...did you check it out? There are 2 challenges and you have until Saturday to play. Two lucky peeps will win a $35 Gift Card to Stamping Bella!!! How about that? You can find the challenges in the Bella Forum on Splitocast.

I decided to do a color challenge inspired by some t-shirt colors at Ann Taylor Loft. I chose
Coral, Green, & Black
Plus you can use any neutral...Kraft, White, Cream, etc. Here's my sample card:

I stamped Stella has her Fix in Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Solar White and colored her with Copics. I cut and embossed her with my Rectangle Nestabilities, added a layer of Wild Wasabi, and then matted that with a black Deckled Rectangle. Using a Martha Stewart Border Punch, I created the scalloped edge on the Cameo Coral piece, then stamped the Fantabulous Day sentiment in Memento Black before tying the New Leaf stitched ribbon around. To finish off the card, I added some Diamond Glaze to Stella's cup and lips (cause she wears gloss, don'cha know!) and Diamond Stickles to her tiara and wand. I think she is totally fabulous!

Speaking of fabulous...have you seen the new releases from Stamping Bella? There are 2 new bellas, some bittyblooms, robots, a dragon, monsters, turtles, and my personal favorite - the 'Tude girls - a new line from Christy Croll (artist of the Tiddly's and Huggabuggs). Whew, I think I got them all...but you can find links to all the new stamps, plus a code for free shipping on Em's Blog.

Last before I go...don't forget to play in the Bellariffic Friday challenge this week...all the details are HERE. Have a wonderful Wednesday!
