Purple Bella Card

Ok, here is the other card I made for the Color of the Rainbow Swap. A very basic card I think. I had a bella colored already, so I just went with it and made more. This is Feelabella with her partial sentiment. I used my JoAnns cardstock and Stazon ink. Ribbon, white brads, and prima flowers.


One neat trick I used on this card....some of you use the ticket punch from SU...well, I am not fortunate enough to have one yet....YET!! I improvised on this card by taking my scalloped scissors (they can't be the real small ones cause it wouldn't look right), turning them just enough to make one scallop on the end - neat huh?? You need to try it on scrap paper.

The other thing - not really a trick - but what do you do with the square left over after you have used all your dimensional pop dots? CUT THEM UP!!! I waste nothing! It still does the same thing and works better if you have a straight piece to pop out. I didn't use any circle dots on these cards. Pretty cool huh?

Well, that's all for now. I've been completing my swaps and have some images to stamp for some bella buddies, then I think this weekend I will try a challenge or try a new technique - maybe masking....hmmmm, that sounds good.

Hope you all had a great "short" work week....FRIDAY TOMORROW - YIPPEE!!!!

Thanks for visiting. **HUGGS**

P.S. GO STEELERS! GO PENS!! Pens are up by 4 this game I'm watching now and Malone is fighting.....oooooo.....
