Lucille is in the house

Oh my word I love the new Uptown Girls by Stamping Bella! As soon as my package arrived with the new release stamps, I knew I had to put some ink to them. First up is Lucille sends her Love. Isn't she perfect for Valentine's Day or even an engagement card to the girl who found the love of her life! I mean seriously, look at all those hearts. She's the picture of a girl in love isn't she?

Ok, so this week we were given yet another awesome Bellariffic Friday challenge by Sketch-extraordinaire, Ebrubella! I did take some creative liberty on the layout. I was using 6x6 pages from the My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Madison Avenue collection. But the Uptown Girls are tall and there wasn't enough dp paper to go all the way around. Because of that, you'll notice that I stopped the matt of pink dp at the ribbon. But I added a strip of striped DP and a scallop of soft pink polka dotted paper instead. It's just a slight alteration so I didn't think harm was done.

You know that I stamped Lucille onto Bella's Bestest paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored her with Copics. I then added shading using prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. Her dress was accented with red Stickles and look at all that glittery sparkle. I even added some to her shoes and yes, her toe nails got a dot of red glitter too! As if that wasn't enough, I also added lots of glitter around the bouquet of hearts and applied it using a Quickie Glue pen. The sentiment, which comes with the stamp was hand cut. You'll also find a simple grossgrain ribbon bow and machine stitching. Finished card size is 6 1/2 x 5. Here's a closer look.

Now hop on over to the Bella Blog to see what the other sistahs have created. Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance at the weekly $10 drawing for Bella Bucks. Think you'd like to play along with us???? Next week's challenge is ANYTHING GOES...easy color whatever you want. Simply send a photo of your card to by Thursday night and she'll include it in the weekly blog lineup. And, there is a weekly random drawing for $20 in Bella Bucks for contibuting. Want to double your chances? Link your card up to Splitcoast Stampers (SCS) using BELLARIFFIC0612 keyword. Now that's case sensitive so don't forget the caps. If you haven't linked your card yet for this week's sketch - don't worry, you still have until Thursday the 16th but use code BELLARIFFIC0512. You see, you get an extra week to play along AND you get a chance for another $20 in Bella Bucks. That's double your chances. Love those odds!

We're finally in for some cold weather this weekend. I plan to hunker down and color! Woo Hoo. How about you?

Enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by.
