Have you been to the Bella blog today? We have three new Sistahs that have joined the Babes. I've been stalking them for quite some time now so I think that you will be very inspired if you visit their blogs. And please visit them.. so you can help me in welcoming these gals.
Tammy Hershberger - Stamp Happy
Jessica Diedrich - The Whimsical Butterfly
Robin McKinley - Stamper Extraordinaire
To help you find them, I've also updated the links on my side bar.
Now how about a card?
I have been dying for Bessie LuLu from Stamping Bella since I saw Paulabella color her up last year. She finally made her way to my craft room. And I thought she would look great in soft yellows and Kraft which meant I could enter her in Jeanniebella's That's Krafty Thursday challenge.
Inspiration came from a piece of design paper from the Sassafras Ellie's Tale 6x6 paper pack I found online at the Bella shop. I stamped on Bella's Bestest paper and colored her with copics. Of course I couldn't resist adding grass with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. Nesties helped me ground the image and an EK Success punch gave me a little contrast with brown cardstock along the bottom.
Check out Jeannie's blog for some more kraft inspiration. She has a huge following now so there is lots to see. You can participate too, just use kraft cardstock on your card. How easy is that?
Edited to add that I have also had a tip from a follower about another Kraft blog...The Kraft Journal. They too have weekly Kraft challenges and this week it's flowers so this fits. I've entered this card there too.
Of course I'm going to prod you to participate in Friday's Bellariffic Friday challenge - polka dots this week folks. There's still time to make a card and send a copy to Emily@stampingbella.com by Thursday night.
I'll be back soon with yet another card using my new paper stash.
Thanks for stopping by.
