Ok...I've been bitten...and it's SERIOUS! Fortunately, I have 3 Cuddlebug folders on their way to me as we speak (right mom??) but no Bellas. I'm majorly hooked on both!!
I was the very fortunate winner of Cindy's Blog Candy contest just over a week ago, and boy did she get to the post office fast!! I got tons of cuddlebugged cardstock, and an awesome new paper piercer (which is great because my SU one from my crafters toolkit has a little tiny curve at the end - and I never called demo support about it.) In addition, my wonderful friend Stephanie (whom I of course have never met in person!) send me a card with MANY stamped bellas inside. Gotta get my order in for those before the hubby leaves for the states again, that's for sure!! THANK YOU LADIES!!
So, to celebrate, let's have some Cosmos!!
For this card, I have a base of Old Olive CS, stamped with Celebrate from Wonderful Words in Old Olive ink. The next layer is Rose Red, Cuddlebugged (that is a verb now, right?!) by Cindy, and then I swiped my White craft ink pad over the top to highlight the embossing more.
Next comes Cosmobella (click here to see all the bellas!). I watercolored her (sorry, the photos a little washed out!) with my aquapainter and Rose Red, Old Olive, Buckaroo Blue and Chocolate Chip inks. I clipped the corners with my much loved ticket corner punch, mounted her on Old Olive, and then put in some gold brads. She is of course popped up on dimensionals.
I think I may have to declare this a Cuddle your Bella week here in Meerbusch, so all week you'll see the creations I come up with using the wonderful supplies from my wonderful fellow bloggers!! Oh yeah...and Stephanie actually has a blog candy contest going RIGHT NOW, so be sure to check her blog out. And the Cindy I won from, is the same Cindy who designed my watermark...so if you haven't got one yet, check out her site too!
