I How could I have missed it? Apparently, yesterday was National Puppy Day! Can there be any cuter stamp set with a puppy than Bella and Friends? I just love this set! Here’s my tribute to national Puppy Day. (March 23 is the annual observation of National Puppy Day. Just so you know)

I think looking at Bella would make anyone want to get a puppy. Well, almost anyone.

Design Notes for Bella and Friends Card:

Well, when you start with the Bella and Friends stamp set you know the card can only be cute. I stamped the image with Basic Gray ink then colored in with the Watercolor Pencils. I like to use Basic Gray ink when I color things since it draws the attention more to the colors rather than the outline. After coloring, I used the Blender pen to smooth out the colors. then I added the cloud for a little color and to tie the sentiment part with the Designer Paper. The paper is from the Carried Away Designer Series Paper. And guess what… I got it for FREE. Carried Away is one of the choices for Sale-A-Bration.

Supply List for Bella and Friends Card:

Do you notice that I’ve listed Bella and Friends stamp set twice? That’s because you can buy it as a clear mount stamp set. Just put the rubber stamps on clear blocks when you are ready to use them. They also come in wood mount. Mount them on wood blocks when you get them and they are always ready to go.

Sale-A-Bration is winding down. Did you like the Designer paper I used, Carried Away? Here’s a better look at the package. I think it is so cute!
