My name is Charmaine and I am a Bella addict. LOL I LOVE the Bella stamps. If you haven't seen them, be careful because they are addicting! I first started seeing the cutest Bella cards from Amy. She creates wonderful Bella cards (and many other wonderful cards as well) :) I was always a big fan of the Annette and Frankie beach movies when I was growing up--you know, Beach Blanket Bingo and the like? (I was really young, and those movies were "really old", but I LOVED them) Well, this is my How to Stuff a Wild Bikini-inspired card. They're polka dots instead of leopard print, but you get the picture. I added the polka dots to her bikini and to the pink brads with a white gel pen. The "wild" sentiment came from the SU Wild About You set.
The second card was made for a good friend's birthday. It was colored using the WWC. I made the tab with the SU Round Tab Punch and stamped "celebrate" and punched it out with the Word Window punch, then just stuck part of the punched piece back into one side of the punch and shortened the end. The orange brads are from Making Memories. I have some other Bella stamps that I haven't played with yet. I'm hoping to get the chance to soon!
