I used dots & daisies for the navy card base and canvas for the red. I also used my new Gelly Roll Glitter pen to color in the red shirt and bows. It doesn't really show up that great in the picture. I really need to get an oval punch that I can use with these cards. It would make it much easier to make several of them!
Next I made a cute brightly colored birthday card. I have a new ticket punch that I have already been using a bunch. I just had to use this on the card. I used the DP (designer paper) I have but have never opened. I got it from a past secret sister and I keep looking at it. I always hate to use my DP for some reason. I just hoard it! I did finally pull it out to make these cards.
If you have any Bella stamps and you want to participate in a swap Christie is hosting one on her blog Little Pink Flowers. I have signed up to use my pregabella stamp. Now I just have to come up with something to do with it.
I have just fallen in love with these Bella stamps. I was showing to my stamping friends at work and we call them contraband stamps because I'm a SU demo and the stamps are not SU stamps! Oh well, I really like them anyway and I plan to order more in the future! I love the way you can just use double stick tape on a clear block to stick them on and use them. And when you are finished you just clean it and peel it off the block. So simple!

I also found a link to these wonderful Bella stamps on SCS. I saw them and just had to have them! Here is the first one I have used. It is called Pregabella. I made the card for a friend who is expecting.
I have the day off tomorrow so I plan to stamp all day! Look for more posts soon since I have new toys and time to play!

The stamps are Gina K Design and I ordered them from Stampingfreak.com. I had ordered the cute little pig but they were out of stock so they sent me this turtle to keep me busy until the pig gets here.
I have also been busy organizing my stamp room today. It was time to clean out my little corner! I bought one of those huge rolling carts with the drawers. The thing is tall and it comes a little higher than my waist. I have never seen one so big before. I went through all my stuff and put everything in drawers and tried to get all the clutter off my stamp desk. Now I have a lot of room to work.

Stamps: Little Hellos, Canvas, Play on Words
Paper: Cool Caribbean, Basic Black, White
Ink: Black, Cool Caribbean
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Gingham Ribbon, Scallop Circle Punch, Circle Cutter, Glitter Gelly Roll Pen
You can't see it too good in this picture but I stamped the Canvas on the Cool Caribbean paper and then I ran it through the cuttlebug. I just love my new little bug. I have used it on every card I have made since I got it.
I was so excited when my package got here with the new punches. I went to use the Mega Oval and I was so sad because it didn't punch! There are parts of the punch that don't meet the cutting edge when pushed down. I sent an e-mail to Jo-ann's to see what can be done about getting a replacement. I also picked up a new toy when I went to Michael's the other day. I went to get a Cropadile but they were sold out. I had a 50% off coupon that was only good Sunday and Monday so I had to buy something. I also placed a big SU order today and I can't wait for that box to get here. I am having a party Jan 16th so I hope it gets here in time.
