Cards a Bella

This past week while we were away I had several cards up on the Bella Blvd. blog. Here's a recap. The first 3 are from the adorable "Too Cute to Spook" line.

This first one was a quick one, I wish now I'd added more to it. BUT it's the one that will actually fit in an envelope, so I'm going to leave it as is and mail it. ;)

This one has a LOT of dimension on it. I used chipboard clouds and tombstone, and pop-dotted the mummy and more clouds. I had lots of fun making this one into a scene.

And my dear Frank may just be my favorite. I made him using the green journaling spot, some Sophisticates black zeros and negative spaces, then made the bow tie out of some purple pp. Last I added the sentiment. I summoned my inner Rhett Butler and really wanted to add the "m'dear" to it, but it just didn't fit. oh well. I still like him. ;)

And then these next 2 are from the new releases "Spring Flings and Easter Things" and "Winter Wonder". They're both sooo cute! I really love the colors in both. ;) These 2 new releases started shipping on Monday.

I made the origami leaves using a tutorial from Kelly Goree's blog, tucked them behind a popped up flower, and used strips of paper and stickers to make the rest. I really love the bright happy colors of this line. Soooo easy to use for any occasion really.

And then as a little play on words, I used the fun little XOXO sticker tag to add more hugs and kisses to the sweet sentiment.

Well, that's about it for me. Now on top of everything else, me and a couple of the kiddos are sick. :( Hoping we get better quickly!

Happy late Friday everyone!

Love the contrast and bright color on this card- very punchy! The red strip behind the trees is a GREAT touch!!!
