Joy of Sets Challenge #004 - Letter B - Bella & Friends

Hello Crafty Friends,

Hope your day is going well. We finally have some sunshine in my neck of the woods - wahoo! Double wahoo as its challenge time over at Joy of Sets Blog Challenge. This fortnights challenge is The Letter B.


The card I submitted as part of the Design Team over at JOS, uses the Bella & Friends stamp set. I absolutely adore this set and often pull it out for children birthday cards.

I started with a Thick Whisper White Card Base, to which I added two panels of retired Dsp with a Black cardstock shadow line in between the two. Bella has been stamped in Archival Black ink and coloured using Stampin' Up! Water Colour Pencils.

Using the Circle Stitched die and Glossy card, I sponged some Soft Sky and Lemon Lime Twist. I used the Layering Circles scallop die to cut a matt in Black.  Bella was fussy cut and adhered to the die cut circle.

The sentiment "Its Your Day!" from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set was heat embossed in white on black card. The "Hooray" from the same stamp set was inked in Black Momento, lightly sponged with Soft Sky ink and then punched using the Balloon Bouquet Punch. I added an extra balloon, punched from a Perfect Days Memories & More card and tucked it behind.

Some clouds were lightly sponged and added with foam strips as they are higher than the dimensionals used to adhere Bella. Some Black & White Bakers Twine was added to the Balloons and Fine Tip Glue to Bella's Bone, Hat and the Flowers.

Why not join us and play along with this fortnights letter. Be sure to check out the inspiration provided by the Design Team. I can't wait to see all the amazing creations the partipants enter.

Until next time, stay awesome
