Stamping Bella Sneak Peek!

If you haven't heard yet, Stamping Bella is having a release this Friday and I have a little something to whet your appetite today!!!
When I was blurfing on the weekend I saw this gorgeous card on Mercy's blog and I simply had to shamelessly case her layout! I {heart} the cluster in the center of the card, although my cluster ended up a little larger, but that's ok.
This sweet Easter Butterfly image will be available at Stamping Bella from Friday, March 5th. The image is on Bella's Bestest Paper and coloured with copics. I cut it out with Blossom Nestabilities then pierced around the edge. I cut out a second image so I could adhere the butterfly body then bend the wing up for dimension. There's a little sparkle on the image courtesy of my Spica glitter pens.
The patterned papers are all from my Basic Grey Kioshi 6x6 paper pack. I distressed the edges then stitched them together. I also distressed and stitched the base layer before adhering it all to the white card base. A couple of layered flowers from my stash finish the image nicely.
Don't forget to play along with this week's Freestyle Bellarific Friday Challenge. Simply email your submission to Em by Thursday evening to be included in the Friday Round-up on Bloggabella.

I'll be back later this week with another Stamping Bella sneak peek for you!!!   :)

Thanks for stopping by!
Karen
