Bellariffic Friday - Big news for the new year!

It's our first Bellariffic Friday for 2015 and with the new year comes new a new Bellababe!  A big 'Bella-welcome' to Kerri!  Check out her gorgeous creations on her blog here.  We also will be starting a new thing - the first Bellariffic Friday of each month will showcase a '"featured" stamp and all the Bellababes will be using this specific image for their cards, so you'll have lots of inspiration.  The good news is that this "featured" stamp will be 20% off at Stampingbella for the month - so it's a perfect time to add it to your collection!  So, lets get on to our first challenge of 2015.  This week the challenge was "anything goes", so that was an easy one to start off another wonderful year of stamping! 

"Gracie" is our featured stamp this month.  I stamped her onto Bella's Bestest paper with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured her with copics.  The Fishtail Flags die-namics (MFT) were a perfect fit for her.  The paper is Cutie Pie DSP (retired SU) and I added a bit of ribbon and of course used my Wink of Stella for some glitter on her shoes.

On the inside I used the sentiment that comes with Gracie

Be sure to check out the rest of the BellaBabes and the Sistah's cards for this week on Blogabella.  Next week's Bellariffic Friday challenge is a sketch.
We hope you'll get stamping with us.  It's easy to play along - just ink up any current (check the website) Stamping Bella image, and email your card to Emily by next Thursday for a chance to win some Bella Bucks.  And again a warm welcome to our new babe, Kerribella!
