Today we have a real treat for readers of It's A Creative World. The very generous Papercrafts shop in Elgin, Scotland have kindly donated a selection of Bella rubber stamps to give away as a prize draw for anyone who leaves a comment on this post today or tomorrow.
Bella stamps have been taking the cardmaking community in America by storm and they've recently landed on our shores, courtesy of Papercrafts and are having the same effect on British cardmakers. Perfect for girly/teenage/female cards, gifts, altered items etc. the 'Bellas' and of course her 'fella' are depicted in various occupations and with cakes, babies, flowers, presents - if you can think of an occasion when you would need a card there will be a Bella stamp just perfect for the job. Contact Papercrafts vis email at kmaciver@aol.com to learn more about the Bella stamps.
Always up for any kind of a challenge some of the girls at IACW have been playing with the Bella stamps and this is what they have come up with.

Pretty in Pink Bella ATC - Joy

I coloured Bella with pink coloured pencils, trimmed the image, and glued it to pink blonde moments papers. I inked the ATC with black stazon ink. I then repeatedly dipped the ATC in UTEE, adding pink embossing powder and beadazzles.
