Cakeabella 2.0

Hello there, today is my last Wonderful Wednesday with Stamping Bella for the month. When I first discovered Stamping Bella it was because of their Bella range. Back in the day they had stick arms and although I loved using the stamps, I am so happy that they have been 2.0'd. I took inspiration for my card today from one that I made with the original Cakeabella (you can see more on that below).

I started off by stamping Cakeabella using black ink on to a piece of white cardstock. I then cut this out using an MFT Pierced Circle die. I cut a piece off of the left side too. Cakeabella was then coloured using Copic Markers. I also added a few white highlights with a gelly roll pen.
I took a piece of paper from the MFT Watercolor wash paper pad and cut this using a Hero Arts Rectangle die. I stamped the sentiment, from the Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Blossom Loves Balloons set, on to this with black ink. The panel was adhered to an A2 purple card base with tape runner. I then added the Bella piece on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Doodlebug Glitter Sprinkles.

As I mentioned above, I took inspiration from a card I made back in 2007 (wow! doesn't time fly when you are having fun?!). I thought I would share the card here for you to see, no laughing now! ....
As you can see, I kept the colour scheme and also the general layout the same. I am happy to say that my card making skills have come on a bit in the last 10 years though! ;) You can see more inspiration using Stamping Bella stamps over on their blog. A big thank you goes to Em for having me guest design this month. It has been a dream come true! Thanks so much for visiting me today, I hope you have  a great day!


  1. Such a pretty image and you have definitely done it justice, remarkable colouring and you have such a fantastic eye for detail. Such a classy design and certainly is beautiful too. Hugs x

  2. I love this image, and I love what you've done with it, it would make a perfect teenage girl card.
    I cringe when I look at pictures of the cards I used to make only a few years ago, but I think it's good to look back and see how far you've come!

  3. It made me chuckle looking back on your card from 2007!!
    I sometimes look back at what I've made and cringe!!
    The new card is definitely an improvement, it's beautiful xx

  4. Isn't it funny how our style changes - but you should never be embarrassed by what you made then because without it, we wouldn't have started or got where we are today! I've come to love Stamping Bella through your blog, so I thank you for that too. I love how you've coloured her and paired her up with that gorgeous background paper. xx

  5. Beautiful your sweet little lady holding those yummy treats!

  6. Ha ha ha, I loved your blast from the past! I think my first card was a peel off on a square on foam pads slapped in the middle of a card, it took me all of 5 minutes! Now it takes me over an hour to do one card, maybe longer!!

    Your revamped card is lovely and I love the colours, I'm on a diet and those cakes look yummy!!

    Big hugs
    Roni :D xox
