Christmas in July-Stampin' Up! Bella and Friends and Pretty Kitty!

Hi everyone,

How did this week go past so quickly?  I had such a fun and challenging week!  If you don't take anything else away from this series, I hope that you look at your supplies and see all the possibilities!

I got the idea from this card while working on a different card with this Bella stamp from the Bella and Friends stamp set from Stampin' Up!.  I thought it would be a really cute idea to have Bella popping out of a Christmas gift and boy was I right!

Isn't it so cute?!?!?!?  I stamped the Bella image with the balloon and bird.  I masked the other two images.  I then used an exacto knife to cut around Bella's paws and to cut up the line on her leg!

I used the Real Red polka dot patterned paper from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack as my background on my card base and for the gift box! 

This is actually a portrait card that I turned on the side.  I stamped the cute kitty image from the Pretty Kitty stamp set and colored her using a blender pen!

I added a strip of Real Red card stock to the gift box to break up the pattern so I could add the Thick Whisper White Baker's Twine as a ribbon and bow!

I used the Christmas Greetings Thinlit to cut out the word jolly from a scrap piece of Real Red card stock!  Wink of Stella provided much needed shimmer to a Christmas Card!
