I love the Bella & Friends stamp set. Probably because it has a dog on it 🙂 DOGS RULE! Anyway, I thought I would complete a tutorial of sorts for this cute card. Let’s get started.
This picture shows the dimensions to cut. Cardstock used is Dapper Denim, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake.
I used the Brushstrokes stamp with Dapper Denim Ink to produce the background of stripes on the cut piece 5 x 3.75
I used whisper white to finish the edges of the striped cardstock.
I stamped Bella with the bird and balloon using Black ink to the 4 x 2.75 cardstock. I then used SU markers to color the image. You can color anyway you like but these are the marker colors I used. The sentiment is from the Birthday Delivery stamp set.
Bella – Crumb Cake ink with Soft Suede highlights
Collar – Real Red
Balloon – Daffodil Delight
Bird – Tempting Turquoise
Bird Beak – Pumpkin Pie
Sentiment- Black or Early Expresso, either would look nice.
While you have the markers out. Cut a piece of very vanilla 4 x 5.25. Stamp Bella with her bone and color her the same as the outside of the Card Bella. Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Birthday Delivery stamp set in Black ink or you could use Early Expresso ink, either would look nice.
The bow is SU 3/8” Grosgrain Striped Ribbon in Blue. I used the ’10 second bow maker’ and made a double loop bow. This bow maker is AWESOME and making nice consistent-sized bows a breeze. I love it! Best thing since sliced bread 😉 hope you enjoyed this tutorial. This card can be used for other occasions by just changing the sentiment(s).
