Banners Galore

Breaking news - Breaking news....Stamping Bella has a new release TODAY!!!!!  Yay!  Head on over to the store or the blog to see our newest characters.  And for all orders over $55.00 Emily will be adding a surprise KETTO goodie bag (stamps will be randomly chosen) the value of the goodie bag will be approximately 30.00!! 

Now on to this week's challenge - add banners to your creations.  There are many ways you could have done this and frankly I love banners anyway you do.  So I hope you played along.

I started by coloring an Uptown Girl that's been in my stash but never seen ink.  Here's Uptown Girl Bunny and her Daffodil.  I thought she could help me with some Easter card collection.  Now don't laugh cuz I say collection because I have a tendancy to hoard the cards.  I can't decide who to send them to until it's too late so they head to the closet for the next year.  Do any of you have that problem?

Ok, you probably know the basics...what did I stamp her on?  Yup, Bella's Bestest and colored with copics and shaded with prismacolor pencils.  I've added glitter and of course the banners.  They were cut using the MFT die-namic.  Small twine bows, machine stitching and a zig zag die finish this one.  Woo wee.

Next week, we're back to a sketch.  Send a photo of your creation to by Thursday night or stop on by the Blog and leave a comment.  And there's also the "Make it Pretty" challenge on the SCS Forum.  Just use keyword BELLAMARONE2013.  We've got Bella Bucks galore and they might just come in handy with the latest release.  Have you checked out the new Uptown Girls, Duda's and Mo's?  Oh my they are all going in my shopping cart.

Have a great weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
