Papertry Inspired Stamping Bella

This is a tote that we made on the cruise in one of Nicoles Papertrey classes. I loved the way Nicole designed this tote and her use of colors. Don't you just love the Kraft, yellow and white together? I still haven't put the other half of this project together, which is a note pad cover....I need hands on instruction! LOL! Isn't this a really cute tote?

I'm still organizing all of my goodies from our goodie bag and wanted to work with one of my new Stamping Bella stamps, called 3 Whimsey Flowers using this lovely color combo. I used a dotted cirlce from SU's Polka Dot and Posies set to stamp the background, and also used SU Weathered BG over the stamped Flower image. I used a Martha Stewart punch to create the borders and glued some ribbon behind the border to add a splash of color. All the ink is SU's Whisper White Kraft Ink. I added some stamping bella yellow baubles and some stickles and some ribbon to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great day.
Smiles :)
