Christmas card blitz continues and some new Bella's!

Before I get to my card of the day I want to enable you a bit, just a teeny tiny bit! Did you see that Emily just happened to 'feel like' realeasing a bella or 2, OR 3! Yup she did! And THEY ARE YUMMY....you can catch a glimpse of them on her blog here. I'll be getting them all, and you JUST MIGHT want to drop a hint to your loved one that they will make really nice stocking stuffers! (and less fattening than chocolate!)

Now...other stuff. This is an impression obsession stamp called Tall Trees that I picked up in Novi, Michigan this past summer. Another clean, contemporary and quick to colour image that needs no huge amount of shading to make it stand out. It is a large stamp, measuring almost 3x5" so I simply mounted it on a 5x7 card and added a nice contemporary greeting which you can find here at Stamping Bella. It is one of my fav's and I use it often.


No patterned paper because a) I coloured the image with no particular paper in mind then couldn't find anything to match, and, b) even the papers I found that did match in colour, were too busy for the image. So I just went to my bazzil stash and found some cardstock to match. I stamped it on Bella's BESTEST paper and coloured primarily with copics. To fuss it up I added some copic atyou spica glitter pens here and there and of course, if it is a circle, it must be an ornament and needs a good glop of Ranger Glossy Accents to give it some dimension. That's it! Pretty quick and easy and I have a couple more stamped off because I need FIVE more cards to finish this weekend to hit my goal of 45.

Tomorrow, it's Bellarific Friday and I have a cutie little card that is perfect if you give money as a gift, although it work well for anything, even a gift card, or forget that altogether and just send it as is! Again, I kept it clean, uncluttered and simple....I'm feeling a trend here!

See ya tomorrow!
