Bella Bleu Wedding

Whew! I am exhausted. I spent the weekend at a cottage Bubba and I bought for me to use during the week up north for school. We bought it as is. For those of you not in the home buying market, as is really means moldy, dirty, smelly, and needing a massive overhaul. We've decided to redo it all--new flooring, new painting, new kitchen (crossing my fingers) and new basement redone. Overall, it's a beautiful piece of land, and has the perfect layout for our family. Just needs a little TLC to improve it. What we were thinking? Sweat equity is something I'm capable of, but I prefer stamping to ripping out moldy paneling.

So, it's Monday, and I found some time to play, between naps and errands.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Teeny Tiny Wishes (in the new catalog)
Paper: Bella Bleu, Very Vanilla
Ink: Not Quite Navy Craft Ink, Sahara Sand, Brocade Blue
Accessories: Pretties Kit, Glassy Glaze Enamel Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Powder Pal, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots

This card started as an attempt to combine two Diva Coffee Break Design Challenges-last week's Color Challenge `132 and this week's Sketch 133. I was close on both, but not exact:

I got the Kraft, Night of Navy and Very Vanilla correct!

I wanted to show off more the of the paper, so I made a square card. Then, I realized I didn't want to add a visual element at the top, so added to the upper right of my main image. The squares in the corners threw me for a bit, but eventually, I found a layout I liked.

I had to go with what my creativity called for!

Happy Stamping!


  1. I like it a lot! It's very nice and very smart to combine both challenges, thanks for playing! Good luck with the cottage makeover!

  2. Very nice card. I like how you changed it, but it still looks like the sketch. Thanks for playing along with our team this week. Join us more often.

  3. Gorgeous colors! I just received some Bella Bleu paper no too long ago and I also have the Baroque Motif stamp set. Really cool for a wedding card- thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Hi Sara, thie is a pretty card. I've got this set, but find it very hard to work with. You did a great job.
