New Stella Bella Stamps

Hooray! The Stella Bella stamps are at Ben Franklin Crafts. I couldn't wait to ink up my favorite Stella Bella purchase, the little chef stamp. However, I learned that the stamps have to first be adhered to a special foam sheet before I could use them with acrylic blocks. The Mapunapuna Ben Franklin Crafts has the EZ mounts near the Bella stamps and the other stores should have them in shortly. A non-stick scissors (like Fiskars) is recommended for cutting the foam sheets. Anyway, here is my first attempt with the chef stamp. I cut off his wings because he is actually a bug chef and I wanted a regular one. To give the card a pastry look I used paper from the DCWV Sweet stack and Martha Stewart border stickers, which look like frosting. I even put a border sticker inside the card......see it peeking out at the bottom. The sayings stamps are two of my favorite ones from Stampendous and All Night Media. I think I will go back and add some glitter or Stickles to the cake. I'm excited to use more of the Stella Bella stamps in my future projects. Hope you'll visit again to see what I'm crafting.
