Another Bella Card and CONTEST!

Are you sick of my Bella cards yet? I just think these gals are so cute, so I had to order more. This card was fun to make. I used the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder that resembled water. Added the polka dot ribbon to the card front and polka dots to her bathing suit with my Signo White Gel Pen (which I think is the best!), cut a scallop border around the oval image and finished with some glitter accents. I love the saying, too, which is a Gina K Design Stamp.

I never heard from the winner of the Cuttlebug embossing folders contest, so I'd like to try it again. All you have to do is post a comment below this post or any post for the following week. In your comment, please tell me what you are creating or what you would like to be creating. To leave a comment, point on the arrow below the posts and it will take you to the comment section. The easiest way to keep up with the post, is to subscribe to this blog by adding your e-mail address in the place to the left. You'll receive the updated blog updates only.

The Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Contest will end on Monday, March 12. My husband will draw a name from the number of people that have left comments. The winner will receive 9 different colors of SU! card stock embossed with a different folder from the Cuttlebug series. I own 9 of the embossing folders and therefore, you'll receive nine.

Let the fun begin!

I can't believe you never heard from the winner. Right now I'm trying to create about 40 (mostly different) cards for an order I received. I hope creative block doesn't set in too quickly!!

More unclaimed candy...the horror! Hmm...I have decided to do two things this week...a) cards with all my various tree stamps (call it a theme week) and/or b) finally going through my SCS favorites and doing some fun cases!

I have a perfect place in my craft room for the unclaimed candy.

OH oh oh, put me down for the cuttlebug embossed samples again. :)

What I'm working on: Ummmmm more cards. LOL. I'm nearly half way to my yearly goal already. Yay~!! Spose that will give me a few days off when baby arrives. My goal was to do one a day. I'm ahead so that is good. I did my 160th card for the year today. :)

Susan H said...

Unclaimed?? Oh my!

Just finished some ATCs and I'm getting ready to work on some bridal shower invitations

Angela Mintz said...

Just used 2 Cuttlebug embossing folders this weekend at my Creative Memories weekend crop and LOVE them!!! Plan on making a stack of thank you's for my customers and a stack of greeting cards for an elderly shut-in woman from my church so she can mail some nice handmade cards to friends. Hope I win your samples! Thanks!

Dawn Mercedes said...

I need to be making up 2 packages. One for my little Secret Sister and one for my VSN vixen swap! I'd love to have the time to do this. But with sick kids and kids home from school, stamping is taking a back seat! Good thing I have my stamping blogs to browse still.

Thanks for another shot at your blog candy:) I enjoy your blog.

Jen said...

Oh that poor person that never came back to claim her blog candy! I am in the middle of creating some birthday cards that I need for this month and a few thank you cards.
Thanks for sharing!

Jan Scholl said...

I can use this folder in a Sizzix right? I use everything else in it.

Leah said...

what a super cute Bella card! I can't believe someone forgot to claim their fabulous blog candy! I would love to give it a home! In addition to trying to create a stock of birthday cards, I am working on making several Easter cards right now. :D

Alex said...

I cannot believe people don't claim their candy, but then having said that I have loads of blogs saved so going through them takes me nearly all day ha ha

I am currently working on doing a three-chipboard coaster frame for my hubby who will be turning 40 on 14 March and I am going to put three pictures of the girls on it for him to take to work as in his new job he has his own office!!!! wahoo so thought this might be nice for him

doverdi said...

Now how could we get sick of your bella cards. I love the bella's too and am currently making bella cards for 2 swaps I am hosting. I haven't yet had been able to purchase the cuttlebug but hope to eventually. This week I'll be catching up on some of the swaps I've entered as well as getting all my March family birthday cards completed. Once that's all done, I'd like to try some new techniques with some of my stamps. I'd love to have that technique be cuttlebug backgrounds.

Sick of Bella's?...I DON'T THINK SO!!! Your Bikini Bella is just too cute. The red and blue (I would not have thought of that combination) absolutely "pops". Now I have to go and order another Bella! I have a "Me" day today and I am going to try some new background techniques. Thanks for sharing your creativity, Leslie.

I can never ever be sick of bella's, and youd o such a terrific job with them! Would love to give your blog candy a new home! :-)

Heather Leech said...

Wow...unclaimed blog candy...there's something very sad about that - unless I win it!!
Right now I'm getting ready to go on a cruise, so I'm going to be dressing up one of SU's art journals.
I'm also so glad I discovered your blog....looks great!

~Lana B.~ said...

Nothing is sadder than "orphaned blog candy"!! I'm pretty confident in my candy adopting abilities *wink*
I would love to be creating w/ Bellas! I have no Bellas yet :( I would love to remedy that sometime soon...my 13yr old has already picked out which Bella is who in our family! LOL
Thanks for adding fun to my day!!

Patty said...

I can't believe there's unclaimed candy.

I'm always working on cards. Right now, however, is working on some cards hopefully will get published one day. I would rather be working on some 60s themed. I just like the mod look but nothing strike me yet. Any ideas?

Heather said...

I've heard about several unclaimed blog candies lately. That's so sad. Lately I'm creating cards with my new cuttlebug I just purchased this past week. I only have 2 folders for now but hope to add to my collection sometime in the future.

Lisa said...

WOWOWYYY.... Unclaimed candy. I found your blog from our friend ALLISON.. This week I have to work on more bella cards and a lunch box tin for a friend..

Happy stamping.

An unclaimed Win? Unbelievable! I love another chance to win. I am currently working on making my little card kits for the workshop that I am having on Saturday

quickcurl said...

Poor blog candy, it is so fun to win something! Right now I am working on several things and I am in way over my head!!! We are doing our Blue and Gold dinner for Cub Scouts(it is late it should have been in February) and I am doing the programs for it. They asked me if I would do the covers and they are looking fantastic. AFTER I started them they told me we need 65 of them! I have so much detail in each one, I don't think I will ever be done by Friday! On top of that I wanted to make a small scrapbook for each boy because I have tons of pictures from the last few years. I can't tell you how bad my hands and fingers hurt. I think I am going to start having panic attacks soon! Even though I have a son, this "boy" stuff is a challenge for me, the fluffy stuff seems so much easier! At this point all the things I wanted to do may go on a timeout! I think I will need a little rest! Thanks for sharing again! Christine

Hi, right now I am making a bunch of things for my Mom who is fighting cancer. I have made her a fridge magnet with the "What Cancer Cannot Do" stamp, and a quote filled star book. Next, I would like to make her a collection of thank you cards for her to give to all her doctors and nurses.
Love your blog. Take care Michelle aka Freakykitty

I LOVE bella stamps. I've just received my first three bella stamps and have been playing around with them. I've actually got a bella card swap going--and I'm dying to see what everyone creates.

I'd like to make more altered items. That is really my favorite thing to do.

Thanks, Janet

I SO LOVE the Cuttlebug folders. I recently purchased a Big Shot in early February and I don't have many of the Cuttlebug folders; so this would be a real treat to see what they have and how I could use them!!

I'm waiting for my card in a box to arrive. I can't wait to start stamping with my very own Bella.
Lucky for us this blog candy is up for grabs - it sounds great.
I LOVE your Bella card as well. Very cute.

Oooh! Unclaimed candy! I'm working on belated birthday cards and children's birthday cards. There are alot of birthdays the next couple of months in my family, friend, and co-worker life.

submission to a few contests, baby shower invitations, a few gifts for just because & birthday, RAKS, SCS swaps and my niece's 1st year albums (yes, I'm making more than 1 and i need to be done by April 26!) phew! and I spend way too much time on-line so it seems like I won't get done, but I will! thanks for the blog candy opportunity!

I would love to have the cuttlebug folder. I just got one last month and have been so busy I haven't been able to play with it. Will do some serious playing over the Easter holiday.

Hi there,
I am working on some coaster boxes, coaster hinged frames and cutting some stamp sets for friends. But not in that order. Today I also worked on some photo wallets. My next projects are cards. I need to make some baby ones as everyone's had one lately! Yikes!

Thanks for sharing! LOVE those folders but don't have a cuttlebug yet.

Just found your site! Great cards! I love looking at all these blogs! I just ordered a cuttlebug, so I will be needing some folders for it! :) I am creating a thank you card with a color combo I saw on one of these blogs.

Thanks for offering blog candy! I love using my CB. Currently I am creating a "good luck on finals" card for my stepdaughter and some Easter cards. I'm pretty new to stamping, so a lot of what I am doing is just trying out techniques: emboss resist, using chalks with CB embossing, eyelets, faux stitching, etc. You have a great blog!
