Presenting Presentahbella

Ever heard of the Bellarific Baberoonis? It's the talented pool of bellarific bellas that help Em showcase her fun & whimsy stamps. My favs are her Bellas and Fellas, but there are plenty of other adorable lines. Just go see for yourself!

They have Bellarific Fridays and is just another fun place to play along. The theme for last Friday was Paper Piecing, and I thought it'd be fun for my Bellas to play along! So out came Presentahbella...

Stamps: Presentahbella (Stamping Bella), Asian Gardens Additions (Waltzingmouse Stamps)
Paper: Paper Basics Card Stock - Black (Papertrey Ink), Paperie Poolside & Greenhouse (Making Memories), Basic Card Stock - White (Recollections)

Ink: Pigment Ink - Black (Colorbox), Earth Elements - Creamy Caramel (Stamping Up!), Perfect Match Pigment Ink - Terracotta (Papertrey Ink)
Embellishments: Kingfisher - Blue (Paperchase), Nestabilities - Labels Ten (Spellbinders), A2 Embossing Folder - Spots & Dots (Provocraft), Softcore Colored Pencils - PC935 Black, PC921 Pale Vermillon, PC927 Light Peach, PC1015 Deco Blue (Prismacolor), Point 88 - Art No. 88/46, Art No. 88/54 (Stabilo), Spool 'o Ribbon - 1/8" Orange (Offray), GellyRoll - Glaze Clear (Sakura)

I thought the circles in the stamp design would be fun to highlight. So I chose a pattern paper with circles. The blue in the pattern paper is subtle enough that it didn't fight with the circles of the stamp. After stamping the present and coloring in the circles, the next neat idea was to make Presentahbella's dress the opposite. A play on positives and negatives, and before you knew it, she was pieced together. Surgery on Presentahbella went well - no accidental amputations - and she quickly regained her color ;) Lastly, the base card stock is embossed with Spots & Dots to keep the circle theme going, which is a little hard to tell in these pictures...

The other fun part was using my newly-acquired-at-CHA Labels Ten! Overall a fun color combination - playful but still chic. Do you have Bellas? If so, which one is your favorite?
