Girlfriends Mojo Monday #42


The sketch over at Julee's blog is so wonderful this week that I had to make a card. It's Mojo Monday over there. I broke out my Stamping Bella stamp that I bought a long time ago and have not used. I was really intimidated by it because of all the details you have to color but once I started coloring it wasn't so bad. I tried to stay within the colors in the paper & cardstock used. They are having Chocolate ice cream hence the color of the ice cream. I try to incorporate chocolate where ever possible in life! :) The card base is Bashful Blue, Cameo Coral is matted on top. I used some cute scrapbook paper I found at the arts & craft center on base two days ago. The paper is by American Crafts called Spring & Summer Teacups. You'll see some other cute papers I picked up there in future posts too. I stamped the "Sweetybellas" stamp in Stazon black ink on Whisper White cardstock. I colored the image using Cameo Coral, Bashful Blue, Creamy Caramel, Certainly Celery & Chocolate Chip stampin write markers. It was matted onto more Cameo Coral cardstock and used dimensionals to make it stand out a bit. I used blue prima flowers with black brads from the vintage brads by Stampin' Up! I used the Much Appreciated stamp set by Stampin' Up!
