Bella Card - New Product Sneak Peek

Thanks to everyone who posted a comment or emailed me with support about my last post. Please know that I was in no way referring to those (including me) who scraplift, case, or copy cards or layouts that we see online. Most of us do that and usually give credit to the person who inspired us. I was referring to those who take actual photos from someone else and post them on their websites/blogs and pass them off as their own. OK, that is the last I will say on the subject. *Ü*

Wanna peek at some new paper in the CTMH Summer Idea Book coming out May 1st? Here is a simple card that I made using the new Bella paper packet. I love this paper! I am in a swap using this new paper so you will see a few more projects with it in the next week or so.
I monogrammed the first initial of each person in my swap using CTMH’s Embroidery Floss. First I printed out the initial on white paper using the Heritage font on CTMH’s Expressive Fonts CD Volume I. Then I placed the printout on top of a piece of Smoky Plum cardstock and used my Piercing Tool to poke holes through both pieces. I hand stitched the letters with the Floss using the holes as a guide. I taped the backs with Scotch tape and then matted it on Olive and Colonial White cardstock. (I also distressed the edges with my Edge Distresser and sponged some Chocolate Distressing Ink around the edges.) After adhearing it to the card with Foam Tape, I added some organdy ribbon to finish it off.
Stay tuned for more Bella samples...

    I LOVE the colors, so pretty! I can't wait till I can get this PP.

    I cannot believe someone would actually use a pic of your art and post it as their own...I have to say I am stunned.

  5. Lisa, I sent a message via feedblitz, not sure where it went though. Still new to blogging and such. Love your cards.Clever how you did your monograms. Might have to try that. Can't wait until I can get the papers. Can only order once a month and I got stamps this month.
