Bug A Boo Stamps Stella


Happy Birthday Bug A Boo Stamps, it's our first birthday and we're having blog hop to celebrate!  If you've arrived here from my "Stamping Sister" Jackie you're on the right track.  If not and you like to start at the beginning click here.


For my card today I've used Stella, I love her attitude!
This card was actually made for my "audition" for the Bug A Boo Stamps design team and I haven't shown it on my blog yet.  I thought Stella would be perfect for Bug A Boo Stamps first birthday celebration.  

Stella is colored with Copic markers BG10, BG11, BG13, BG18, R21, R22, R24, R02, E000, E00, E31, E49, E41, E42, E43, E44, E47, C6, C3, she's cut out and matted using Spellbinders Long Skinny Rectangle dies, the stars are also a Spellbinders die.  My card stock panels are embossed with Cuttlebug Swirls & Swiss Dots embossing folders, the cardstock I used is Stampin' Up! Taken With Teal, Cameo Coral and Neenah Solar White.  The rhinestones I added to the stars have been enhanced with a Copic marker BG18.
