Card Samples

It’s DA first BELLARIFIC friday of 2010!

Hiya sistahs!

Well I am a little late.. been so busy shipping ordahs and trying to keep my head afloat.. it’s been CRAZY around bella land for the past little while..!

let’s start by discussing our topic for BELLARIFIC FRIDAY this week!  The theme was BACK TO SCHOOL.. omg.. note to self.. make more BACK TO SCHOOL THEMED stamps! LOL.  you will see what I mean in a minute.  I just love bellarific fridays, seeing people’s entries, enjoying each and every one of them.. it’s magical!

Ok let’s see what our BABEROONIS have been up to.. have I mentioned how much I lovey them so?


Jeaniebella used BETTY BOOKWORM

Joannabella used SPENCER the BOOKWORM

Jodibella (how does that sound JODI??) used Scarlett the Teacup girl (jodi explains how this fits in)

Karen MOTZABELLA (still lol’ing on that one) used SPENCER the BOOK WORM


Paulabella used BOOKWORMABELLA

Meahnibella used ALL PUNKED UP

SHANNANABELLA (let’s all welcome her back!! MWAHHH!) used BOOKWORMABELLA.. first she used IMELDABELLA and I asked her WHAT DOES IMELDABELLA HAVTA DO WITH BACK TO SCHOOL??? (I said it quietly and softly.. so emily-esque and she had a whole convoluded story and then submitted this one in it’s stead..LOL.. I would ask the same thing to Jodibella but I still wanna impress her so I will be quiet.. shhhhh

So do you think I should rename this challenge to be DIFFERENT LAYOUTS WITH ONE STAMP? LOL

  2. Karen Motz says:

    Bwah ha ha!!!! I LOVEY the “same stamp different layout”!!! Who knew we all loved the same stamps so much!!! The entries are all so fabulous!!

  3. lisa henke says:

    so sad I didn’t have time to play this week (I did stamp with bella stamps, but no back to school!). LOVED all the samples this week, how could I not-the stamps are A-dorable!

  4. Jamie N. says:

    Loved the samples this week! And a belated congrats to Jodibella!

  5. Everyone’s work is amazing, I love all the intellectual bellas and “book worms” that were used. Great theme and great job everyone!

  6. Jeanette S says:

    Oh where did the week go….i planned to do this, but time escapes me sometimes. And lo and behold, i had my Betty the Bookworm stamp chosen for it!

  7. Angela P says:

    Congratulations to Jodi! Great cards by the babes and players this week. Loved the little lollipop gal in the last sample—this one was my most favorite!

  8. Debi says:

    LOL the Green Bean Babies certainly got lots of play this week. Everyone did a wonderful job!

  9. Sara Spencer says:

    Great entries!! Love all the inspiration. I am waiting for new stamps from Stampingbella so I hope to play along sometime soon. =) Yay!!

  10. Leslie G. says:

    Great cards ladies – love the bookworm cards! I feel I need to explain my Lattebella…….I’m sure loads of Mums are now able to enjoy their morning coffee a little more with the children back to school 🙂

  11. LoriT. says:

    Love back-to-school time other than that it also means back-to-work time for me (sigh…)…love all the entries! Great cards!

  12. Jodi Collins says:

    You are SO funny Em! I am LOLing!!! All the cards are GORGEOUS!!!

  13. But I was being CREATIVEEEEE!!!!! 😉 Just for you I decided to float in the same direction instead of swim upstream…but just you wait…
    I’m so happy to be back!! MWAH

  14. paula says:

    yahooooo, this was funny and I loved it!! LOL I have one more idea and no one used that stamp…I am doing it for sunday! ohhh, I da genius!

  15. Kristin says:

    Love the theme, and the cards!! Have to say I wish it still was the holidays.

  16. Pauline says:

    Loved this weeks theme (even though I only own one back to school related stamp) guess I need to buy more :). Great cards ladies!

  17. Tanya says:

    Oh my heck…FUNNY!!! I thought for sure Teachabella would’ve been used, was so surprised she wasn’t! I think it would be fun to use one stamp and see what everyone comes up with…maybe advertise the week it’ll be used say 2 months out so that’ll give everyone who wants to play plenty of time to purchase the stamp or swap images with others, etc. Anyhow…great cards everyone, loved them all and loved reading the funny comments to go with them!

  18. Erica J-W says:

    These are all amazing. I love how versatile the stamps are and how everyone interrupted the challenge. Great work all!

  19. Linda C. says:

    Maybe it’s not the stamp …maybe great sisters think a like!!! I loved the bad hair day card and Bookwormabella would be a great going off to college card. Good job sisters!!!

    Well, the sistahs definitely convinced me I need Spencer and Betty, so I guess they did their job well, didn’t they? 😉
