Fun with Bella Products

I just got in a LARGE order of Bellas and I'm so excited to play with them. Now, this card doesn't use an actual Bella, but it is a stamp that can be found at in the Tiddly Inks Collection. I love some of these images mainly because this little girl here reminds me of Maddie and the other girl with the curly hair reminds me of my neice, Kellie. So, be looking for a card for the two of them sometime soon :-). I thought Super Jayden was a fun image and though I didn't know what I'd do with it, I had to order it. Well, guess what? A little girl down the street thought it would be a good idea to give Maddie a car she had outgrown which gave me the opportunity to use this stamp! YEAH! This is a 'thank you' that we'll bring over later tonight. Now, I also wanted to show you DaDots. Stamping Bella's creator Emily has designed these flat embellishments and has just started selling them. She wanted something like a brad that didn't poke through and the Dots were born. There are so many varieties available and not all of them are posted yet on the website. The pictures on the website made me question whether or not they were really all that cute, but Em mentioned on a forum that the pictures didn't do them any justice and I would have to agree. These have a really nice shimmer and sparkle to them and are a cute accent for any card. They're not too thick which is nice given the recent hike in postage. Here are some close-up pics of the dots. I tried to capture the sparkle and at the same time try and show you the dimension. These do not have adhesive on them so you will need glue dots or like product to attach them.
I am very pleased with them and even more pleased with Stamping Bella in general. In my first two shopping experiences they have just really impressed me with customer service. The first time I ordered from them I had trouble submitting my order and when I e-mailed Emily, she responded almost immediately to help get everything figured out. Then on this most recent order, I requested some Dots be added to my order that I had seen on her blog even though they weren't up on the sales site (I had to submit my order because I needed another stamp right away :) and she obliged! Some companies would make you wait and submit a separate order, but she didn't and I really appreciated that! So, in a nutshell...I think I'm becoming an Addictabella!
