Cosmobella Goes to Paris!



What a great mail day! I received more stamps from Stamping Bella and I just couldn't wait to get them onto cardstock. The first one is Chefabella. She reminds me of my daughter, Kirsten, who went to England in 2002 to attend Le Cordon Bleu Cooking School. She received her Diplome and is now a Chef de Patisserie (pastry chef), so this is for her. Kirsten is also the proud Mama of one of the darling little boys in the slide show. Wait long enough and you will see a little fellow sticking out his tongue. That's her son, Owen. Gorgeous, isn't he? I will get many uses out of Chefabella, I'm sure. I also used the Funky Shadow, medium size, to ground her and I really, really like the look of it. It's way better than a plain oval, don't you think? I do, and that's really all that matters.




The second one is a combination of stamps from different companies. Of course, Cosmobella, well, you all know where she comes from, right? The Eiffel Tower is a stamp by justjohanna. This card, or a variation of it, will be used for a swap I'm in over at The Stamp Shack. It is being hosted by Debbie, also known as 1of2shoes. Debbie is an extremely talented lady and her use of Prismacolor Pencils is magnificent. She is also a member of the justjohanna Design Team. Naturally, because of this, I wanted to make a card that didn't require a lot of colouring, after all, I'm not nuts enough to go up against the best colourer (is that a word) that I know! So, enjoy "Cosmobella delights Paris" and think of Em, The Bella herself, doing a whirlwind tour of the City of Lights!

Tomorrow I'll be posting a review of some UHU products I have been using. So be sure to come back tomorrow and find out if they were good, or bad, in my experience. See you later.
