Bella White Space Challenge

Since it's New Year and I'm home I'm posting twice in the same day! I know, it's unheard of for me, but hopefully its a sign of things to come in 2013. 

I bought a whole bunch of Bella stamps recently. Actually, I bought a lots of other stuff over the break too. I can't keep up with using all of it and yet I just keep getting more because the its so cute and I just can't help myself. Like so many other of papercrafters out there, I'm addicted. As far as addictions go, it's not such a bad one, so I'm not seeking treatment any time soon :) Anyway, back to my new Bella stamps. You'll be seeing a lot more of Phoebe Ketto before Valentine's day, but here's my first one for Bella's December White Space Challenge. Phoebe's dress is shimmering from Liquid Pearls and I added Stickles to her wings because a girl needs some sparkle.

And because I just love CAS cards and couldn't help myself, I made another quick Bella card using Branching Out Owlies. Lime green can be a challenging color, but I think it works well with the kraft cardstock. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Olgy, I'm loving those owls in lime green...what fun! I also love the strip of patterned paper and row of pierced stitching dots, both great touches. Thanks for joining in at CASology!

  2. These are both amazing! LOVE the neon on the kraft--so fabulous! I hope you have a chance to come and join us this week at Inkspirational and this month at Technique Tuesday! We've got prizes, a giveaway, and a DT call!!! :)

  3. I love the lime green on the kraft and how you've tied it to the dp. Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week,Olga. Your CASology thumbnail is linked to your blog, rather than this post - it's much easier to find if you can link it directly to the post - if you need help, please let me know and I'll try to show you how to do it! Thanks!

  4. I love the lime green and kraft combination on your card! Thanks for joining in on the fun at CASology this week!

  5. The lime green on that sweet image really pops against the kraft ... and I love that you've pulled them together in the border strip! Anita in France :)
