Bella Beauty & Friday Blog Candy

Today's blog candy is this acrylix stamp set from CTMH. It was the August Stamp of the month and it's called It's Your Day. To win just leave a comment on this post and I will select a winner on Wednesday. If you are a subscriber, you may leave two comments.

You know how sometimes you really want a stamp set? I really wanted this Bella Blossom stamp set even though it was set to retire. I bought it anyway and it did not disappoint. It really is a pretty stamp set. I used kiwi kiss and razzleberry, along with razzleberry lemonade dp and crushed curry and razzleberry cardstock. I have seen posts where some people think crushed curry is just hideous. I will admit that I absolutely loved last year's in-colors but these new ones are growing on me. They have really gotten me to use colors that I wouldn't normally use and to use completely different color combos. Sometimes it's nice to get outside of your comfort zone! The middle piece of the flower was stamped again and cut out for dimension. I am so happy with this card!

Pretty card, and I like Crushed Curry! For me, it is a nice muted yellow that works with a lot of combinations. I'm planning on using it quite a bit in my fall cards. Thanks for the chance to win.
