Card Samples


Hiya Sistahs!!! Hope you had a great week!  We had a PHENOM week in bellaland with visitors on Monday and we had Kristi Ferro from Hanna Stamps and her POSSE come and visit Bellaland yesterday! How cool is that?!  We had a great time!  I cannot believe that a week has passed again.. I mean.. WHERE DOES THE TIME GO??? If you can find that out, you could be RICH! LOL

Just to let you know that we must say goodbye to Monique Hawrelluk, one of our most esteemed Bellarific Babes.  She has done a phenom job with us and we wish her lots of luck in her future endeavors!

So here was our challenge this week.  I know it was short notice sistahs and I thank you all for participating! It was SOOO MUCH FUNNNN! (and of course one of my favorite color combos :))  Thank you Leslie for recommending it!  Here is the challenge.. using pink and brown…

So let’s see what our Bellarific Babes have been up to with this challenge!

Nickabella– Nicky decided that it would be WONNNDERFUL to give another sneaky peeky for our April 28th release.. she used LITTLE EMMY for this card.. Is she the cutest thing ever?  Christy Croll, our FAMOUS and AMAZING artiste and great friend designed little emmy based on what she thinks I am like..LOL! and boy was she right! notice her curly hair… a little lopsided… different socks, different shoeZZ.. and a love skull on her shirt and glasses on her head..LOLOL.. I SOOO feel like her sometimes and the sentiment?!  We all have some of those DAYZZZZZ.. mwah nicky for the gorgeous card!

Danabella made a stunning card using our WEDDING GOWN circle stamp.. the coloring, the layout, the ribbon!! GORGEOUS!

Jenabella made a PHENOM card using Causabella!  I LOOOOVE IT!! Haven’t seen this stamp in a while..LOL and just makes me smile. Excellent Jen!

Joannabella made a stunning card using Missmatch KETTO… Don’t you just love the polky dots, the nesties, the image etc?! LOOOVE IT!

karenabella made a gorgeROUS card using peony BITTYBLOOM.. is she not ADORABLE?!  Love da bitties and there are more coming on April 28th!  Gorgeous card KAREN!!

Lindabella made a bEEyooTIful stunnariFic (LOL .. am in the mood to be FANCY) card using Stella’s Cupcake.. Aren’t the papers and the coloring phenom?  love it Linda!

Paulabella used babyfellabella… HOW GORGEOUS? HMMMM?

and LAST but not Least… Shannanabella made a stunning CRACKLY card using our Bloomin’ Pots stamp… did I ever tell you that this stamp was inspired by an actual picture of the identical connecting vases.. I pleaded and begged and was not allowed to buy it.. HMPH.. but at least I have the image FOREVAH! Gorgeous!


Now for our SISTAHOOD’s MAJOR TALENT!! I was so thrilled to “see” new faces sistahs! MWAH!  If I missed any submissions, please re-email me and I promise to get the images up ASAP and I apologize in advance!  I have put the name of the stamp in the caption with the artist’s name so if you would like to purchase the image, you can just put that title in the search box and up it will come!
