"W"ednesday with Bella on Bauble


Happy “W”ednesday, Friends! It’s time for a new “W”ednesday post at Magnolia-licious. These cards and projects feature the new stamp lines Wee Stamps, Wild Rose Studio, Penny Black, and Candibeans now carried by the Magnolia-licious store.


My card today highlights my favorite Wild Rose Studio stamps called Bella. My grandmother was a collector of elephant figurines and décor items so I have grown to love elephants and these adorable stamps remind me of her.

I colored this cute “Bella on Bauble” stamp and cut her out so I could use a Spellbinders frame background. I heat embossed the bauble after coloring it with Copics to give it a lovely sparkle then I decoupaged Bella on the Bauble.


I cut lots of Magnolia Sprawling fern leaves for a Christmas tree branch effect. Then I ran some satin thread through Bella’s hand and the bauble to make it appear as though she is hanging from the tree.
