Diplomabella Challenge.....

We are soooo snowed in around poor puppy went outside to pee and when she jumped off the step she went under the snow!! She managed to back up the steps and came back in.....but then of course she still had to pee, so out she went and squeezed in behind the bushes at the side of the house....and I am presuming she did her thing back there...... I didn't follow her to check!! LOL!! It's freakin' crazy out there!

We can't get out to go anywhere or do anything.....there is too much snow even to toboggan.....hubby got his 4-wheeler stuck so he is soooo pouty.....on his birthday no less!! So I cruised around SCS and found a couple of from Stamping Bella and one from My Favorite Things.

The Stamping Bella challenge was a color challenge and the colors were pink, black and sky blue. You can see the gallery here.

No offense at all to Stamping Up, but I was happy that they weren't Stamping Up colors because I never know what color they really are. I am not Stamping Up - although I LOVE their products - so the names of some of those colors - whew!

This cute little girly is Diplomabella. I colored her gown black and her boots and chest ribbon thingy (what is that really called?!) my version of sky blue.

I cut her out so that the bottom of her was FREE!!! I wanted it to look like she was against a blackboard...I think it does....

I adhered her to pink and black cardstock cut out with my rectangle scalloped nestabilites.

The black cardstock has sky blue ribbon wrapped around it. Well, it was white ribbon but I colored it with my Copics so it was all good.

Copics are so great for coloring ribbon! You need to wait about 15 minutes for it to dry and it will make your ribbon a bit stiffer, so take that into consideration if (when) you do it! Try it!!

The sentiment is from Autumn Leaves "Ledger Tabs" stamp set and the two little doo-dads on either side of the Ledger Tab are from Papertrey Ink "Faux Ribbon" stamp set.

Geez, my puppy wants out again so I have to go and make sure she doesn't drown out there!!



  1. WOW! love it! great colors and doodling!

  2. She DOES look like she's in front of a chalkboard. Great idea.

  3. Hiya Lucky C! This is a great card! Love what you did with this challenge! The colors are very nice! I have a kid who will be graduating this spring...wonder if there is a fella diploma bella?! I will have to check that out! Really nice job!x
