"Birthday Bellas"

I seriously need some new greeting stamps. Even I am getting sick of using the same ones over and over. The paper I used on all of these is from the Summer Pack DCWV from Joann's. I don't have any Bella's but my good friend Kristine was kind enough to let me stamp some when we got together last month in LA.
Stamps: Stamping Bella, Everyday Flexible Phrases,
Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White, DP
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Stamp-a-ma-jig, SU markers

This one I really like. I love the colors of the paper. I am not so sure about the ladies outfits. I wouldn't wear those colors but they look good on them.
Stamps: Stamping Bella, Warmest Regards
Paper: Brilliant Blue, Green Galore, Basic Black, Whisper White, DP
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: SU Markers, Primas, Stickles

This one I am not so happy with. The idea was so much cutier in my head. I guess I like it except for the greeting. I stamped it with the white kraft pad but I didn't think it was dark enough so I went over it with my SU gel pen. That was a mistake. I don't like how it looks now. It totally looks like I drew it myself. Oh well, live and learn I guess. I like the retro look of the paper and I knew it would go with cosmo bella
Stamps: Stamping Bella, Warmest Regards
Paper: Almost Amethyst, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Kraft White, Basic Black
Accessories: Giga and Mega Scallop Square, SU Gel Pen, Paper Piercer, SU Markers
