Although I am not a fan of unmounted stamps, I had to check out the Stamping Bella website several weeks ago after I started seeing some of these wonderful looking girls on cards. A friend and I went in together and split the shipping charges.

I got CosmoBella for a specific friend of mine. Not only does my friend look stunning with a pretty glass in her hand, these girls look just like my girlfriend! I'm not kidding! She dresses like this, has a body like this, has hair like this... and yes, she often has a fancy glass in her hand LOL!

I played for the first time with my Bella on the weekend... gotta come up with a birthday card for my girlfriend.

I stamped CosmoBella on white cardstock and I painted her with my long lost Radiant Pearls (at one point, I had all of the released colours!). Once she was dry, I added some Swarovski Crystals (in blue) to the cuff of her pants. I cut her out, layered her on to Real Red. I then cut a piece of patterned paper (not impressed with the colours in this paper), added some diamond stitched ribbon and put the card together. And still, it needed more.... so I added some hand drawn doodles around the edges.

I will have to play some more with my CosmoBella.... make her look even more like my girlfriend!
