Sistahs! Where does the week go?! I have no clue but it happened again. It’s FRIDDDAYYYYYYYY!
WE have had great entries this week so get your java, sit down and get inspired… you ready freddy?
this was the challenge image
The colors were black, red, ivory and blue.. a mixture of any or use all 4! Another part of the challenge was to include a button on the card or layout (yes, of course you are allowed to submit layouts! With our amazing papers available online and in Bellaland, how can I RESIST a gorgeous layout?! HMMMMM???? In the image above, I posted Collage Press Paper (another one of my favorite lines).. the quality of this double sided paper is not to be beat. it is thick and smooooooth and silkyyyyy and YUMMMMMY.. and the colors are crisp and FRESH! The buttons are from JENNI BOWLIN.. they are soooo Vintage.. SOOO creamy and delicate. These are by far one of my favoritEST buttons evah.. and it has just a hint of bling in the middle.. DEEELISH! Of course you didn’t have to use these products, I just thought it is so much fun to mix and match different lines.. I am SO not a matchy matchy person.. I love to just mix paper lines and embellishments!
Let’s begin with our BELLALAND Bellarific Babes
Nickabella made a gorgeous card with our new WILDFLOWER BOUQUET stamp.. it comes with a mini stamp as well to embellish the inside of your card and envelope and back of card! LOVE IT! NIcky Cuttlebugged the bottom layer with SWISS DOTS embossing folder and embellished her middle button with a cut out of the original flowers.. I just LOVE that touch. Brings the whole card togetha, don’tcha think?
look how cute that little flowah is! (another nicky nugget!)
Here is Diannabella’s layout using Jenni Bowlin 4*4 mini paper pack (I LOOOOOVE THESE.. LOVE LOVE LOVE THESE!!) they are cute and little and so versatile! you can make your own little 4*4 book! This one she used is the Farmer’s Wife mini paper set.. I have sold out the others but have a new shipment coming in any day and as soon as I get them I will post and let you know! Dianne also used the Jenni Bowlin chipboard Bingo Butons… SO CUTE!

Here is Monique-abella’s card. HOW GORGEOUS is it? She used Tatiana KETTO as her focal image (WHO I LOVE BTW). She also used the JUST FOR YOU sentiment.. isn’t she CUH-UTE? LOVE HER
Here is my very simple card. As you can tell.. I LOOOVE simplicity.. so here you have it. I used my cloudy HANGING BLOCK .. I paper pieced one of the clouds with fancy pants paper, I stamped happy birthday from billboardabella’s words and in the third cloud are these charms that I FELL IN LOVE with and had to carry in the shop. They are called “tiny words” charms and they come 12 in a package. LOVE LOVE LOVE them! so linear and graphic! I attached them with Queen and Company’s ultra mini brads (SO CUTE). The cloudy hanging block is great for cards or scrapbooks.. you can journal in them, stamp in them.. love them!
clean, simple.. lotsa white space..LOL
