Bridal Shower Stamping Bella Card

Stamping Bella makes the girliest girl stamps ever.  I just love them so when it came time to make a shower card for my future daughter-in-law, Cathy, I had to use one for her card.  I used the Brigitte the Bride stamp from Stamping Bella.

Isn't she darling?  This card was a lot of fun to make.  I loved adding the embellishments and the bling!  Here's an angled view so you can see the sparkle better.

Here's a closer view.  I used Art Institute Sea Shell glitter over the top and bottom of her dress.  It's the most transparent clear glitter that I've found and the Copic coloring showed through just as I'd hoped it would!

I enjoyed making this card so much that I made another one in pink.  

I tried something new for adding color to the background.  Instead of using Copics, I used the Ultramarine Blue Tint Pan Pastel and a Sofft Tool knife.  I loaded up the knife, positioned it on the edge of the bride and pulled away.  It looks very much like a Copic shadow background but was so much easier to do!! 

Flower Soft really dressed up the bouquet...so pretty!  My friends convinced me to use it and I'm glad that they did.  I used pink and silver Flower Soft here.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a nice day :)

  1. Oh, Janet, these are just so beautiful! Perfectly coloured and beautifully glittered. The vellum looks really lovely and the flower soft makes the prettiest bouquets. Cathy must have adored her card. Debra x

    1. I hope this works - not very techy, so don't know how to contact on blogs without the whole world seeing it.

      Do you do special orders? I'm interested in the Bella Brigitte shower card you made, but need other colors (Stampin' Up Rich Razzleberry and Night of Navy).

      Thanks, Patti

    2. Hi Patti, sorry but I didn't see your question until just now. I don't do special orders. I'm trying to get some cards together to open an Etsy store. I'll put the info on my blog once I get it set up.
