Happy New Year 2018!

I get to start off 2018 with the Stamp Review Crew!  Today we are featuring the stamp set: Bella and Friends.  Such a cute set and I am so glad we are showcasing it as this is the first time I have inked it up!  Pairing it with our Stampin’ Blends Premier Alcohol Markers definitely helps make an eye-catching card!  The cute images and quotes are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face!

Bella & Friends is such a cute set and perfect for any animal lover, especially those with dogs.  It is a perfect set to color with the Stampin’ Blends, or even our Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen. So many cute images of Bella to use and color, this set it definitely a fun one!

I had already adhered Bella to the 2nd Layer when I decided I wanted to add the Pool Party Color as my background…so my little Bella received touches of color around my fussy snipped edges.

I have created a few cards with backgrounds using my Stampin’ Blends, so much so, I have to replace my Pool Party set.  I definitely got a lot of use out of it and have been very happy with the quality of the Stampin’ Blends.  I recommend them to anyone that likes to color, or even if you don’t, they can grow on you.  I love to watercolor, so Blends definitely took some getting used to, and now I love them.

The Stampin’ Blends are available several ways: Individually, by Color Pairs (Light and Dark) and as a Bundle that includes all available colors.
