Bella Thank you

Good Monday Morning Peeps! Hope you all had a great weekend! I was busy most of the day yesterday working on, you guessed it, Elvis cards, and I happy to report that I am more than half done. I hope to have them in the mail by the middle to end of this week! We are under a winter storm advisory, with ice and sleet and snow predicted later today. I hope we don't lose power, last ice storm our power was out 5 days! It was miserable.

I did take a break from Elvis to make a card to show you today. I wanted to use my new to me set, Bella Blossoms. I just got it on Friday night and was anxious to play with it. I also wanted to use the sketch on the
Our Creative Corner blog. I am not sure it qualifies for the sketch because I added the large panel on the front with my Bella Blossom. I did use the two round corner elements. Soooooo....anyway, I do LOVE this stamp! It is so pretty and makes really pretty cards, but it is large!

I started with a base of riding hood red , followed by a piece of kiwi and a piece of DS paper from the Bella rose pack. the center strip is made up of white, riding hood and DS paper from the Bella pack. I stamped the flower with riding hood and kiwi on whisper white card stock. I then stamped the flower two more time on scraps of white with riding hood red. I cut out the two front pieces of the flower and layered them up with some dimensionals. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and was stamped with riding hood red. I masked off the "you" first and stamped the "thank" part with RHR and then did the same with the "you", centering it under the "thank" so I could use my 1" punch and some pretty hardware from the stylized silver hodgepodge kit. The opposite corner has a large spiral clip with a piece of RHR ribbon tied on and held down with a glue dot. I added two small photo corners on the other two corners underneath the flower panel.

I have to take some time to show you a couple of awards that have been sent to me lately.

The first was given to me by Chat on her blog "Me, My Stamps and I. She is a fabulous stamper and so sweet. I stalk her blog regularly.

And then this weekend I received another from this wonderful stamper, Kim Evans,

Stamping with Kim. Check out her blog, it is awesome!

Well, that is all for today, Thanks so much for stopping by, be sure to come by tomorrow for another card with this same set! Happy Stamping!!
