Oh So Pretty!

>> Wednesday, May 28, 2008



Here's another bella! This one was actually for a swap and i can NOT take credit for the idea of putting her pretty reflection in the mirror. I saw it on Lauren M's blog (as she is one of my absolute favorite designers... i like to copy her alot... teehee).

She made her card flawlessly and i shamelessly took the idea and used it on my cards for the Anytime Bella Card Swap in the bellaholics group. The paper piecing is super easy... but i did take some pictures along the way for anyone who may like to try it out...


First i stamped OhSoPrettyBella onto plain white cardstock and colored her with Copic markers. Then I cut out her mirror using a craft knife. Next i stamped the bella again on another piece of cardstock but you can notice i didnt even ink her up all the way. I then just colored in her face and hair and then positioned her the way i wanted (i did a little angle) in the oval cutout. Then trim off any of the excess paper underneath that will be seen and viola - you've got a bella reflection.

The rest of my card is Close to My Heart printed paper (from the Life Delights collection) the top piece i scalloped using my corner rounder, scraps of DCWV cardstock in a lilac color, misc bling and then the sentiment is my new favorite sentiment (obviously) from Verve Visual Stars stamp set

OOOOH and i almost forgot (because it's hard to see in the photo) but i used the copic spica pen in clear as well as some stardust glitter pens to add lots of sparkle to ms bella herself. :)

What a great job! Love the mirror image! She is just one of my favorites. Reminds me of my youngest daughter! And I love the bling and glitz. Can never have too much sparkles if you ask me.

Katie is right, the pics do not do her justice, they are much better in person. I am so glad she made these for my swap...and I absolutely love that sentiment.

Awesome job Katie!
