Bella & Friends because Everyone Needs an Up when you're Feeling Down

Card, Bella & Friends, Stampin Blends, Stampin UP

Hopefully, you will all agree that there's nothing that feels better than going to your mailbox and finding HAPPY MAIL when you're feeling down.  Problems large or small can take a back seat for just a little bit as you admire and absorb the kindness you just received.  We all know I'm a animal lover through and through and the Bella & Friends Stamp has to be one of my all time favorites.  The funny thing about creating this card is it was therapeutic for me too.  Anytime I can create with my Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers I feel like I'm in a very peaceful happy place.  I guess you could say it brings your inner child out and hey who doesn't need that from time to time.

As you can see I wanted to add dimension to this card and give it a lighthearted fun and uplifting feel (get it with the balloon ;), oh sometimes I make myself laugh.  Once I cut down my card stock, I add added my own visual texture to the Soft Sky card stock by using the Background Bits Hostess Stamp set with Soft Sky ink to get that tone on tone affect.  Then, I grabbed my trusty circle punches, paired it with Daffodil Delight card stock and popped the key elements up with dimensionals.  Last but not least, I couldn't resist adding a strip of the Crushed Curry 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon for that extra wow factor at the bottom.  So in a nutshell if I'm needing some "me therapy" I create a few of these cards and keep them on hand, because you never know when someone will need you to send them a quick HUG in the mail.
