Bellarific FRIDAY take 2!

Sorry sistahs, have had SUCH a headache with this internet and WORDPRESS today.. don’t even ask! so I am retyping the whole entry again.. bear with me..

mwah!

Well it’s here sistahs!  Our challenge was quite a success!  Who would EVER think of putting white, purple and red together?  Nicky and I were fearful at first but the image was so elegant, we figured how could it go wrong?!?!?  and it didn’t!

Before I go on, I would love to introduce our brand new BELLARIFIC BABES!  We have chosen some amazing sistahs to help contribute to these bellarific fridays and post some samples on their blogs.  You may already know some of them but if not, please give a BIG ROUND OF applause to….

Nicky Manel of course you all know NICKY.  Nicky is Stamping Bella’s creative director, right left hand and feet..LOL and is one of the most talented cardmakers of all time (IMHO).  She has been stamping and teaching for more than 10 years, has a very dedicated following.. people don’t even have to know what she is teaching, they just sign up!  Nicky’s warmth and talent exudes at all times…you just want to be close to her and hopefully, through osmosis, you will become that talented too (i’m still waiting.. hmph).  Nicky has been on TV several times demonstrating the craft, has been published in many a magazine.. just a super wonderful sistah!

Here is a pic of Nicky and her bellarific Friday card!

and she HUFFED and she PUFFED and she BLEEWWWW the house down!

and she HUFFED and she PUFFED and she BLEEWWWW the house down!

Come meet STEUBY.. otherwise known as Shannan Teubner

Wonderfully talented, a joy to be around and a wonderful friend!  a True sistah!

cute cute cute!

cute cute cute!

here is Shannan’s bio:

“Hi my name is Shannan, and I am an ADDICTABELLA!  I started stamping in 2006 and in early 2007 my first bella stamp made it’s way into my craft room.  From that day on, I was a woman OBSSESSED.  Don’t get me wrong, I love all my stamps.  But my Stamping Bella stamps have a special place in my heart, and so do my sistahs.  When I am not stamping, I’m chasing my 2 boys or hanging out with my husband.  I am honored to be playing along with the Bella Babes, the Princess Bella Babe and the Queen Bella Babe.  I loveyyy them all!  Mwah to all my sistahs!”

Here’s Shannan’s BEEYOOTIFUL springtini card!  Isn’t it gorgeous?

now meet Karen Motz

cutie patootie

cutie patootie

We met Karen about a year ago and we fell in love 🙂  She and her BFFFFF Dana (see below) just lightened up my day whenever they came to visit.. the passion, the zeal, the zest!  you couldn’t beat that!  Here’s a little bio introducing karen and then her card using HAPPY FLOWERS which come in 2 sizes packaged together!  I also think Karen is addicted to dots.. she used the poppy glitter small dots and nestabilities!

“I was a scrapbooker for years, but rubber stamping and card making have taken over my passion ever since I was introduced to it in May of 2003.  I love all the different looks you can get with one stamp.. I love colouring…I love paper.. I love ribbon.. I love embellishments.. I love it all!  In addition to stamping for myself, I also taught stamping and cardmaking classes at my LSS.  I was lucky enough to live nearby Bellaland.. it’s such a fun and happy place to spend some time and some money (grin!).. Since moving to Massachusetts, I started blogging in November ’08 as a way to keep in touch with friends and also share a little of my creativity with the stamping world”.

beeyootiful!

beeyootiful!

Now please meet Dana White.. the other half of Karen..LOL.  These two made our day when they came to visit!  They even were put to work at times (we have no shame..LOL)  Dana, we miss you sooo very much and hope you come and visit us soon k? (and sickness is NOT a reason NOT to come for a visit..hmph)

Here’s dana’s bio and picture.. now give her a round of applause!

that smile! mwah!!

that smile! mwah!!

“my cousin introduced me to scrapbooking and from that I discovered rubber stamping, at the time I said it wasn’t for me and now I have a wonderful room devoted to what I was not going to do!

When living in Toronto I was lucky enough to discover Stamping Bella and become friends with Emily and nicky, and spent many hours at Stamping Bella; my HAppy place with my sistahs.  Since moving back to Calgary I miss Toronto and the time I spent with the girls (and Ryan)

I started blogging in Dec. ’08 to get my stamps inked regularly and whenever I need a fix of my happy place I reach for my Bella Bindas!”

and here is Dana’s Card

stella bella bo bella banana fana fo fella.. fee fi fo fella FELLA STELLAAA

stella bella bo bella banana fana fo fella.. fee fi fo fella FELLA STELLAAAand HERE'SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS LINDA HEAVENS! We met Linda last year when she came for a visit to Bellaland.. we had so much fun, coloured our heads off, blabbed and gabbed and ATE. It was an amazing Day!! Linda is a Phenom colorist and fabulous cardmaker and just a wonderful person all around 🙂 We love you Linda!!here is cute lindathat smirky devilish smile.. BWAHHAHAHAHAHA

Here is Linda’s BIO and Card
I’m Linda (besiieheav on SCS).  I’ve been married to Mark (affectionately known as “the hubs” on my blog) for 20 years and we have 18 year old twin boys.  We are preparing to be empty nesters in September when the boys will embark to university.  we ARE ready (we think!) If you are wondering where the “bessiehheav” came from, it was derived from my beloved West Highland Terrier, Bessie.
I’ve been stamping for about 6 years but have always been a creative soul at heart.  As a youngin’ I grew up with a mother who painted and sewed and I was always intrigued by it.  My grandmother was a seamstress and taught me to sew at a very early age, a skill I still enjoy today when time permits.  I grew up with an easel in our kitchen where I watched my mother take her weekly oil painting classes, much like today where my kitchen has become my creative space.  Unlike my mother, I was never much for oil painting, watercolor and pencil crayons were my passions.  Needless to say, when I discovered there were images out there that I could stamp, then paint or colour, I was hooked.  Just over a year ago, I ventured into copics and I am still learning how to use them to their potential.  I can’t say I have a favorite colouring medium, I enjoy them all and even like to mix them up!
I am hoping I can inspire you in some way, just like my mother and grandmother have inspired me.”
This is Linda HEAVENLY.. lol

This is Linda HEAVENLY.. lol

now meet Monique Hawrelluk

this chicklet is FULLL of energy.. and I mean FULLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL of energy and that is why we looooove when she comes to visit Bellaland!  She is extremely talented, SOOO cute and bubbly and hard to resist!

cute cute cute!

cute cute cute!

“I’m a jack of all trades.. master of none”  so to speak.  My passion for crafting and creating led me to rubber stamping approximately 5 years ago and really have no idea what I would do without it now  I ‘m also a Stampin Up demonstrator, but mainly as a hobby.  Besides my amazing son and most supportive boyfriend, rubber stamping is now my true passion and my escape from reality.

and here’s Monique’s gorgeous card using Patricia Birthdaycake!

gorgeoussss dahlink!

gorgeoussss dahlink!Let's now meet Paula Williamson.. she has been to Bellaland too! we had SO MUCH FUN together !.. had a group of sistahs including Lunda.. so much fun!!! Paula is funny and full of personality (we'll keep you Paula *winks*) Paula is also a wonderful cardmaker, master colorist and funny and fun and and and!another big mwah!

” A huge HELLO from Michigan!  My name is Paula and I lead a double life.  During the day I work in a small factory and we manufacture pressurized toilet systems.  Can life get more glam than that?  When I return home to my loving husband, daughter, dog and cat, I slip into my ‘room’. (ok sometimes I make dinner).  I started scrapbooking in 2000 and it’s been almost two years since I just gave it up and set my sights on the blogging world and cardmaking!  I rediscovered my love of coloring and I have never looked back.  Believe it or not, I spent four years in college, two were in an art school in Ohio.  I studied color, composition, design and lettering, and it’s all helped me with my cards today.  I love making, learning and helping others.  I usually have a smile on my face and while I think of myself as shy, others might not agree!  LOL.  Blogging has opened up a world of people I would have never met otherwise, and spending a day with stamps and friends is as good as it gets! I don’t know if you could pin me down to any particular style, other than “clean & uncluttered”.  I like to focus on the main image and show it off.. and you probably won’t find a card that I have not sewed on! haha”
Love Beetle EXTRAORDINAIRE!! how BEEYOOTIFUL is this card?!

Love Beetle EXTRAOrDINAIRE!! how BEEYOOTIFUL is this card?!

love this girl!

love this girl!

Her layouts are FAB-O, her coloring is PHENOM and she has agreed to be a BABE (even though she was one before..LOL)
“HI there! I am Jen del Muro aka genie1314 on SCS.  I have been crafting all my life, but dove into stamping about 5 years ago.  It all started with a home party and I was hooked from there.  I am thankful to have served as part of the SCS dirty dozen, as well as several other design teams.  I live in North Texas with my beautiful daughter, Ellie and my loving husband Tony.  When I am not stamping, I enjoy hanging out with them and our 2 crazy dogs and sly black cat.  My work can be seen in various publications, and on my blog.  Thank you to Emily and Nicky for bringing me on to play with the wonderful Stamping Bella Stamps (as if I needed an excuse to do that!) and the rest of the bella babes.

Of course Nicky is queen bella babe (LOL.. she will kill me for saying that) but it’s true! and I am princess bella babe..LOL… I mean, I should have a title too, no?

Ok so how the bellarific friday works is that I will present a challenge (or one of the bellarific babes will) on Monday of each week.  People who would like to participate, will email me their submissions (emily@stampingbella.com).  In the subject line it should say BELLARIFIC FRIDAY FEB 20th (or the date it is for) with submitters name, blog address, email address.. Submissions will  be accepted no later than 5pm EST on Thursday evenings.  On Friday, depending on the volume of submissions, I will try to post all of them, or some randomly and then enter the rest into our gallery!

There will be a $10 gift voucher offered to the winner of the challenge!  Nicky and I want to keep this fun and challenging and don’t want this to become competitive etc.. it’s all about DA FUN.. sistahs!  WE ARE SOOOO EXCITED!!!!  ARE YOUUUUUUU???????

PS. of course all cards submitted have to have Stamping Bella images and sentiments and embellishments (if you can!)

Since Monday is “FAMILY DAY” and a statutory holiday in Toronto, I will be posting the challenge today!

but firssstttttttt…. take a looky at these cards.  Nicky has outdone herself once again 🙂  She challenged herself to use 1 sheet of paper (pink and green of course…we are on a pink and green kick right nicky? :P)

don't you wanna SQUISH her?

don't you wanna SQUISH her?

In this card, Nicky used our soft and luxurious Lyra colored pencils with odorless mineral spirits and bella blenders (I hate the word “stomps/stumps”..LOL).. she also used our new DREAM STREET paper called LULLABY, our PINK PUNCH variegated ribbon and of course our TURTLE TOTS CHEERLEADER (includes the sentiment).. is it YUMMY OR WHAT?

and….

check out the ROSESSSSS… They are so fresh you can almost smell them!  Nicky used the same dream street papers and they were colored in with Copics.  The sentiment comes from Billboardabella’s words.  PHENOM!

Pick a rose.. any rose... Great for any occasion!

Pick a rose.. any rose... Great for any occasion!

Ok now for the contest.Please please forgive the crinkle in the paper but Nicky and I found this in a magazine while on the plane back home from CHA and loved it so I folded it in a million pieces and put it in my purse!  Found this in REAL SIMPLE magazine.purple is not my fave nor is red but this combo, could not resist! so elegant and BEEYOOTIFUL

Nicky used cuttlebug swiss dots, a definite staple in your cuttlebug collection, cotton candy bonbons and the great photo corner curved punch.. isn’t it DEEVINE?

just wanted to leave you with some EYE candy sistahs.. thought this was wistful and perfect!
Tomorrow I will be introducing our bellarific challenge and what it entails.. should be fun!
In case you havent noticed, I am now updating my store constantly.. I want the true bellaland online 🙂 lol.. although you won’t have the same EXPERIENCE per se, at least you can “see” what yummies we have!  I am receiving CHA goodies daily so keep on checking the WHAT’s NEW section
a few things that came in today in very limited quantities was QUICKUTZ fonts and dies, and new storage goodies.. I just love this system for embellishments.. basically you set it up on your desk on the carousel then when you are ready to crop or go to a friends house to stamp, you can fill your “on the fly” storage case with embellishments and off you go!
you can find the carousel here and the “on the fly” storage here.. LOOOOVE them
We also received some new ribbons which I will hopefully be able to post tomorrow too :).. OMG.. I can’t even put into WORDS what I feel for this ribbon.. mmmmmmmm.. yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…

Let’s discuss our new artist ELENA FRENCH.  She is super FABBY DABBY, ADORABLE, TALENTED.. and when I saw those turtles.. OMG.. I just about had a heart attack.. literally.  And when she said YES?!?!?! I think I really DID have a heart attack.. Honest.  Here’s a little bit about Elena

is she not adorable??

is she not adorable??

and here is a little bio about her

When Elena French woke up one morning dreaming of illustrated turtles she knew she could not put off the ideas in her head any longer! Working as a graphic designer for a government contracting company in Connecticut was a stable job but did not supply the creativity she was craving. So like any other closet artist she started drawing anyway! At night, on weekends, she could be found head bent over a drawing pad, dragging her set of Prismacolors wherever she went. She is stepping into the world of blogging, illustrating, Etsy, and now stamps! What a dream come true! Elena hopes to continue creating artwork that is full of whimsy, hope and childlike innocence. She has done graphite and charcoal portraiture for years but is now focusing on Children’s Room art and Illustration. To contact Elena or just get to know her heart, you can visit: Elena’s website at www.elenas-easel.blogspot.com  or e-mail her elena.french@gmail.com

Please please please post her a comment on her blog and inspire to draw more for us!  SHOW HER DA SISTAH LOVE!!

Please welcome the beginning of the Turtle Tots collection. You can find picking posies here

I cannot believe I am posting this picture but I found it PERFECT in regards to our RELEASE tomorrow.. ya know.. NANNY NANNY BOOOOOO BOOOOO.. I know what I am releasing AND YOUUUU DON”T.. LOL

Sistahs today we had an amazing day in Bellaland 🙂

We ALWAYS get questions emailed to us asking what our day is like and I never have a chance to respond or describe or put it into words.. well that lovely silly face above is a snippet of how I behave on a daily basis..LOL (not really.. I am VERY PROFESSIONAL.. just ask the local sistahs who come and visit! 😉 BE QUIET local sistahs..LOL

So our local tv station called me earlier this week and asked to set up an interview at the boootique and of course I said sure!  I have been on TV before and you could have confused me with a mute.  I am so animated and bubbly in real life and then once the camera goes on…. RIIIBBBBBBITTTTT (see my RIBBIT theory from a post 2 years ago..OMG 2 years ago..LOL) .. I cannot STAND being in front of the camera.. blech.. fooey.. yuck.. but for the sake of da sistahs, I sucked it up :).  So the camera crew came today and we have our LUNCH BUNCH who comes every thursday and had some sistahs hanging out..
