It's Bellarific Friday!!

TGIBF!! Woo-hoo! I LOVEEEEE Bellarific Fridays, don't you? I just love lookin' at all the FABBY eye candy from da Bella Babes and the sistahood too! They're just uh-mazin!! LOL!

This week's BF challenge theme was "Masculine". Well, with Father's Day right around the corner, I'm sure this played right into your card makin' schedule right? I actually needed to work on mine as well but decided to mix it up and make my cousin's birthday card instead. This is Jackson the Champion from Stamping Bella. He's part of the Green Bean Baby range of stamps. These are SO CUTE! I LOVE coloring their hair! Tee-hee! I started by stamping Jackson on to some Bella's Bestest Paper and colored him with my Copics. I matted him with some SU Basic Black and added a few brads to each corner. This DP is from the Rough and Tough collection from Fancy Pants and is SO BOY!! I finished my project with some saddle stitched ribbon threaded through a cute orange button! I think it turned out so cute and is a perfect little boy card, don'tcha think?

I'm also using this card as part of Catered Crop's FTR 13 challenge too!

* Colors – red, white, blue, and yellow
* Stamps and Stickers – happy birthday, sailboats, waves
* Color Mediums – stamp ink
* Embellishments – twine/hemp rope, buttons
* Tools – punches, border punches, distress tools, sewing machine, die cuts, pearls
* Techniques – distress, make a square card, paper piecing, sewing, distressing
* Theme – summer, water, happy birthday

Wanna play along in this week's FTR13 challenge too? Just use ANY one of the above ingredients and link your card to the FTR13 challenge over at the Catered Crop. Just so you can see how easy it is to play along (and almost ANY card will do) I've highlighted those ingredients that I've used in my card above. Easy Peasy!!

Ok, that's it from the hen house today! Be sure to hop over to Bloggabella and check out all the eye candy for today's Bellarific Friday "Masculine" challenge!

That's always a fun technique! Come on and play along, just dust off those Stamping Bella stamps and submit your project via email to Ok, you hens have a WONDERFUL weekend! {{{hen hugs}}}
