Snowbunnybella for Gina

German Phrase of the Day: Hast du schlechte Laune? = Are you in a bad mood? Actually, I'm in a better mood today. However, I have to it won't last long! ;-) However, I spent most of yesterday stamping some special I guess it's my turn to do some work!

Here's another of my Bella challenge cards from the other night. This card is my favorite of the 4 I made. It was for Gina's sketch challenge...which was an awesome sketch! I knew I wanted to use Snowbunnybella, and my snowflake paper, so I built the card from there.

I stamped the main image in Palette Noir ink onto watercolor paper, and then colored her in with an aquapainter and my soft sky and blue bayou ink pads, along with blush blossom and summer sun. I added a little redness to her cheeks and nose (it's COLD, right?) with some pretty in pink. After getting her all colored in, I applied some liquid applique to all her fur trim. Then, before heating it, I added some sparkle with a little Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Gives her a little extra glam! I then clipped the corners with my SU! ticket corner punch (not retiring thank goodness!!) and layered on some soft sky, which had also been clipped, then finally onto the blue bayou where I added the silver brads.

The base card is Blue Bayou, with a layer of Soft Sky on top, both sponged of course. To make the diagonal piece, I cut a strip of designer paper a little longer than the diagonal of the card and layered it onto some blue bayou (both sponged). Next, I attached this to my card on the diagonal, then I just trimmed the overhang. I figured this was easier than anything else I could have tried!!

Once that was done, I popped Bella up on some dimensionals, then I added the Making Memories snowflakes on a pop-up glue dot, and I stamped the greeting from my GinaK Designs set Got Snow below the snowflake. I love my bellas!! :-)

  1. Fabulous card, Jana! I love the colors. I feel cold just looking at that bundled up Bella!

  2. I LOVE that card so much. You could send that back to the USA with the other Susanne to mail to me - 'cause I am missing that snow so much. I hear the North is Great and White and with that grandson in the big hospital, I could use some cheer. Nanabella
