Meet Catherine...


Katherine is one of Stamping Bella's newest Uptown Girls. You want her? Well starting tomorrow she will be available in the Stamping Bella store. She's part of Emily's newest release! And she's got some new sistahs that will be introduced too. There's Dottie and Patty too. And we have some new designers and characters joining the Stamping Bella family. Em has been showing us little pieces of them on her blog and on Twitter and I can't wait to see ALL of them tomorrow! Yeah, she keeps us in suspense too. Ya know she warns us every time that this is gonna be the best release evah and she nevah seems to dissapoint us. From what I've seen so far she just might live up to her promise!

Now onto Catherine; whom I love cuz she's my namesake. Catherine was inked onto Bella's Bestest paper and colored with copics. But I added lots of shading with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. Since she's so dang girly, I added lots of glitter to her dress. My daughter saw this and said she wished I could buy her that dress! Wow, that made my day!

For me, the chocolates would have been all dark but that wouldn't be very appealling for you so she's got a heart box full of color. And that would be a box of awesomeness, hence the perfect sentiment that comes with the image. Love that Bella now includes one with just about every new image!

The design paper is from the Basic Grey Bittersweet 6x6 pack. The cardstock is Bazzil. Finished card is 5x6 inches. Want to see some more sneak peaks? Head on over to the Bella blog or Splitcoast Stampers. All the sistahs should have something to share for you. And then check out the store on Tuesday for the release. Just make sure you save a little something for me ok?

See ya soon.
