Stamping Bella meet Papertrey!

My Papertrey Ink purchases came in the mail yesterday!! Oh my! Oh my!

Beautiful colours.......Berry Sorbet and Sweet Blush mingle together so fabulously!!

AND Stamping Bella's Wedding Gown Circle thrown in for fun with a dash of Stamping UP!

That sounds like a recipe for a great card, don't you think?!

I stamped the Wedding Gown circle on Papertrey Ink white cardstock and then again on two separate pieces of the Papertrey Ink Pink Patterns Patterned Paper ---whew! I know I can't say that 3 times fast!

I coloured the image with my copics and then used liquid pearls for the buttons on the back of the dress.

I cut out the bow and attached it with pop-up dots and then cut out the background of the image and glued it on a white cardstock circle Papertrey Ink cut out with nestabilities.

Then I used the nestabilities again to cut and emboss and scalloped circle and popped up the image on that.

I glued my two matching pieces of patterned paper onto the Berry Sorbet cardstock base and stamped the Stamping UP! sentiment in Brilliance black.

I removed the guard from my corner rounder and made the scallops on the patterned paper. Then I took my paper punch and cut out little circles from the lighter patterned paper and added them to the scallops.

I punched out a half scalloped circle with the giga punch and glued it to the end of the card to let the image stand out a bit more!

It is VERY pink!!

I used Beate's sketch for this card and I kind of altered it a bit, but I am sure that is allowed!!

I was thrappy (thrilled and happy!) for this sketch because I was having a real "crapIcan'tfigureanythingouttoday" moment and I didn't know how to portray this stamp! need a little shush (shove and push!)!!!
