You Rock!

Happy Bellarific Friday! As if today wasn't already special enough just being Bellarific Friday, but it's also Release Day at Stamping Bella!!! Woo hooo!!!! I can't wait to see all the goodies and get my hands on those new Lollipops!!! Speaking of...did you see the fab tutorial Lindabella did in the Stamping Bella Splitcoast forum on colouring the Lollipop faces? It's AH-mazing...go check it out!
Ok, on to my Bellarific Friday card. The theme this week was All Things Kids. I immediately thought of the new Green Bean Baby line and those adorable kids. I decided to use Jackson the Champion for my card.


When I first saw this image I knew I wanted to do the 'bouncing ball thingy' with the soccer ball. So I stamped Jackson four times with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper. I coloured him with copics then cut him out with square Nestabilities. I used my black Glaze pen on Jackson's eyes and the black parts of the soccer balls and once that dried I covered each ball with a layer of clear Glaze pen.

The white card base has a finished size of 3.25 x 6.5 inches. I layered some Baja blue cardstock then chose the striped pattern from my Cosmo Cricket Boyfriend Mini Deck. I snipped the top edge to look like grass then I stitched a zig-zag along the bottom and around the image. The three soccer balls are popped for dimension and I used my copic Multiliner to draw in the dashed lines. The sentiment seemed perfect for this card. I'm pretty sure this will be going to one of my nephews next summer during soccer season.


Let's pop over to Bloggabella to see all the wonderful submissions for this week's Bellarific challenge AND the new releases!!!
