Good morning Sistahs!!
Hope you are doing great!
We missed last week’s bellarific friday due to the holidays and we were outta town but we are back and this is gonna be a GREAT WEEK!!!
First, I must announce our news!! We have a new bellarific babe joining the team and she is AMAZING! She currently participates weekly and does phenomenal work. Her name is Joanne. Joanne Basile (said like James bond..LOL) . I met her last year at CHA, FORCED HER to get Bare Escentuals makeup.. she did.. and the rest is history! LOL. We also met up when we were in Boston and had a PHENOM time! ANDDDD I also introduced Joanne to Karen Motz.. and they became instant friends! So, in other words, Joanne is no stranger to Stamping Bella nor to me on a personal level. I LOOOVEY her and you will too!
This is what the cutie patootie looks like
and here is a little blurb about Joanne, written by Joanne (I didn’t pay her to say this.. I swear! LOL)
“Hello, my name is Joanne Basile and I’m an addictabella! But honestly, if I’m not working at my table, then you can bet that I’ve been stamping on the brain and a project in mind for my next quiet moment. It’s funny though, because when I was first invited to a Stampin Up party a few years ago, I had less than no interest in the craft itself, I was just excited for a girls night out with friends. But, that night, with a stamp in one hand, and a glass of wine in the other… I had a blast, and the rest, as they say, is history!! Stamping Bella was one of my very first stamping purchases, and I was thrilled to meet Emily and Nicky at CHA in the winter of 2008. A few sassy comments from Emily and I just knew we’d be fast friends! Trust me when I say she’s every bit as fun in real life as you’d imagine! I’ve been having so much fun participating in the weekly Bellariffic challenges and I just about had to be PEELED off the ceiling when Emily asked if i’d like to join her and the babes! From the original Bellas to the adorable Chichiboulie Fairies, Huggabuggs, and my obssession with those new Kettos, I love all that Stamping Bella has to offer and I’m so excited to be joining the girls!!”
So there you have it.. simple BELLARIFICNESS..LOL
So without further delay (wanted to say ADO (or adieu.. SP??? but was EMBARASSED cuz DUNNO how to SPELL it).. let’s begin our AMAZING PHENOMALICIOUS round up of Bellarific HEAVEN. Here goes!
Here was the challenge.. just loved the colors and the “flalas” (jayden says for flowers)… made me very very happy!
Here is our very own NICKABELLA‘s card which is simply STUNNING. Nicky used our dozen roses stamp which also has a mini included.. LOVE those minis.. they can be used on tags, to dress the corner of your envelopes, to spice up the inside and the back of your cards too! Nicky colored these so beautifully and popped the roses for dimension and interest. The background on the card is using our new circle shadow set! GORGEOUSABELLA!
Lindabella made a STUNNING card using our JAR OF WILDFLOWERS.. this jar of wildflowers comes with a mini stamp too.. Her coloring is DEEVINE and this stamp is adorable.. LOVE IT!
Paulabella made a STUNNING card using bridalpartybellas.. i just LOVE this card and as you all know (or maybe you don’t!) this was the first stamp in the stamping bella collection.. so my heart ALWAYS warms up when I see this stamp in “action”..LOL! The coloring and the added bouquet for texture and dimension are gorgeous!
Shannanabella made a STUNNING card with our LIMELIGHT hanging block.. I just love this stamp (do I say that with every single one??? hmph.. it’s true.. I do.. ).. it’s so whimsy and the movement of the lamps.. just love it (there.. I said it AGAIN..LOL).. Love the coloring and the layout… GORGEOUS!
How’s DAT for eyecandy… was it worth the wait??? LOL.. I know I keep repeating myself but my babes just keep getting bettAH and bettAH! NO??? And the sistahood submissions are also OUTTA CONTROL amazing!!
I made a CORPORATE decision (cuz we are so corporate..LOL) that moving forward I will be giving a $20 gift certificate to a winning submission from da SISTAHOOD and another $20 to someone in the PEANUT GALLERY. now people have been asking what our peanut gallery is. Our peanut gallery is a loving term for our “commentators”.. so whomever places a comment has the chance to win $20! How EASY PEASY is dat?
Ok, back to being not so corporate..LOL.. Here are our FABULOUS.. AMAZING.. PHENOMALICIOUS.. contributions from our SISTAHOOD.. our sistahood is from all over the world so why don’t you, when you place a comment, please tell us where you are from as well! Would love to know!
OK blablabla over, let’s go! I will feature the artists name in the caption line, and the name of the stamp used next to it. If you would like to find that stamp on my website just type in the name of the stamp in the search box on the top right of my home page..
We can’t forget Jami Rudd’s addition to our beeyootiful collection! sorry Jami!
And Caroline Counsell’s STUNNING clock! LOVE IT!
So that’s it sistahs.. did you not LOVE this selection of stamps used? PHENOM I tell you!
I hope you enjoyed this Bellarific Friday.. cuz I know I did (despite the hyperventilation..LOL)
