Roses on Paper Challenge - Hearts, and Belles N' Whistles release date!
First off, I just have to let everyone know that Belles N' Whistles will be open tomorrow to start taking your orders for these sweet new images done by the ever so talented Elisabeth Bell! The day is finally here that you can start picking out your papers and planning on creating with these sweet cuties! Look back tomorrow or Saturday for some great samples of my cards used with these stamps. You'll be able to start posting your own cards made with these sweet things towards the end of this week coming up, Summer is so fast with her shipping! I just had to tell you all about this before I went on about my card for this week's Roses on Paper Design Team Challenge! I'm so excited for all of you to get and enjoy these uber cute (as my girls would say!) stamps!
I'm so late with getting my card up for the Roses on Paper Design Team Challenge Blog that is being put out by our lovely, terribly talented Lim! She had us do a card with hearts and I chose my Tilda with Bunch of Roses for this. I so associate roses with hearts and love and just thought she'd be perfect for this challenge!
I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored her with copics. I stickled her flowers and used my glitter pen on the stems and leaves to give them just a hint of sheen. I used some of those great BasicGrey bling half moon pearls in the corners and in the center of my Prima flower and added a couple of heart charms and some dainty gold cord. It's hard to tell, but I used my Fiskar heart edger along the side of the pink flowered paper. Wish that would have shown up a tad bit better. And I added a hatpin for her. I love those things (Thanks Lim for your help with those!). I love how she came out!
Here's a close up of the flowers and that sweet face. Love these babies!
Make sure you stop by our Design Team Challenge blog and see the great cards my fellow stamping sisters came up with and pull out those Magnolias, A Lot of Rubber Stamps, The Greeting Farm or Rachel Ann Miller stamps and join Lim's challenge. Show us your heart! And don't forget to get over to Belles N' Whistles tomorrow and pick up your stamps. I can't wait to see what you've been inspired to create!
