Bella Birthday

16/01/2010

Another confession today….. I didn’t like Bella Rose paper when I first saw it. No, that’s not true – I did like it, when other people used it. It was something I couldn’t imagine using myself – ever.

But two very talented women have inspired and encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone – my great friend Kate, and my fellow demo and friend Paula, who have both used this paper on gorgeous projects and made me realise that maybe, just maybe, I could do it too.

So here’s what I’ve been up to this morning:

But wait, there’s more!

Yes, it’s an easel card! Here it is, side on:

SO this morning, I have achieved a few objectives. To a) make a beautiful birthday card for our family friend and boys’ godmother, Alli (happy birthday, chick!); b) use Bella Rose DSP and do it justice, and c) make an easel card, which I’ve seen a few of lately, and wanted to try.

Stamp Set: Occasional Greetings (which I’ve just got FREE, as part of my Stampin’ Start reward)

Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White, Bella Rose DSP

Ink: Riding Hood Red

Accessories: Chit Chat Rub-Ons (on inside of card), Button Bouquet button, linen thread, eyelet border punch, sponge

    love your easel card Bron & I liked that paper when I first saw it in the IB & C. it’s funny how seeing someone else use something can change our minds.

    Your easel card is just beautiful Bron! I never had any doubt you would do the DSP justice. You are, after all, a very talented paper crafter (amongst other things). I really enjoyed catching up with you today. You Rock!!
