Well, the new catalog will go live in early June. That means it’s retirement time. There are so many great stamp sets that will be retiring. One of my all time favorites from the list is Bella & Friends. That little dog is just so cute! I checked back on my blog posts and found I’ve used it quite a few times. Here’s my latest, a card for a neighbor who just got a puppy.

More Bella:

This card was so easy to make. I stamped the puppy with Crumb Cake ink then used the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends to add the color. I have to say, the puppy looks just like my neighbor’s new dog!

Here are some of the cards I’ve posted before using Bella & Friends stamp set.
