A Fairy Tale and a New Development

Hi all,
This week has been so busy - I feel like I haven't had any time for stamping!  So, I decided I had to sit down and create something.
Before we get to that, I wanted to let you know of a little development with Stamping Bella: we are back on SCS as a member company!  And we will also be bringing Bellarific Fridays there!  Check out the Bella forum HERE.
Em will also be drawing for a prize for each week's Bellarific Friday from the gallery of submissions, so each week when you upload your Bellarific Friday card to SCS, we will give you a key word to add that will make sure your card goes into that gallery!

OK, so here is my card for today:
Nice and simple - cute image. 

My card base is Sahara Sand CS, the patterned papers are from the Authentique pack called Blissful, and the mats are black.  I punched the edge of the smaller black piece with a Martha Stewart edge punch, and I added some black grosgrain ribbon tied in a knot around the base.  I also threw on some black Martha Stewart pearls in some of the corners. 

I stamped the cutie Posie Pixie onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured her with Copics.  I added some shading and grass with my Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  I cut her out with Label 4 Nesties, and added some sponging inside the stencil with Antique Linen Distress ink. 

So here is the run down for Bellarific Friday, which is starting back up now!  Our first challenge for the year (Jan. 13) is a sketch (see below)!  All you have to do is make a card using that sketch and any image sold at Stamping Bella, and email it to Emily ( by Thursday night.  You will automatically be entered to win some Bella Bucks to spend at the store, and your card will be published on the Bloggabella on Friday!

Now here is the part about SCS: Upload your card to your SCS gallery.
To play along simply link your card using the keyword BELLARIFFIC0112 (case sensitive) and 1 person will win a 20.00 gift voucher to Stamping Bella!! Now if you also email your card to Em to be included on Bloggabella you will have a chance to win bellabucks there too!  So it's twice the number of chances to win!

The SCS contest closes at 6pm EST on Thursday Jan 19; the winner will be announced on this thread on Jan 20. You have to use a stamping bella image to be eligible to win the prize.

Here is the sketch:

Hope you enjoyed, and don't forget to visit the revivied Stamping Bella Forum on SplitCoastStampers!

Thanks for stopping by!

Robin, this is so adorable. Love these Pixies. Great choice of s/binder die to frame her in. Love the layout and paper choice.
