Flowahbella -memories of past challenge

***Hi everyone! If you're here for the Season's Givings blog post, scroll down***

I have been doing some MAJOR cleaning out in my craft area. Bringing out boxes of supplies from storage and going through everything. I am thoroughly enjoying using products from any and all companies! So this week's SCS CAS514 challenge was just what I was looking for -Memories of Past. To use your first stamp set, bring out paper or a technique you used in the past. Well, I brought out my long retired, and very beloved, Flowahbella stamp from Stamping Bella. One of my first loves and stamps. I have 8 cards using her in my SCS gallery. WOW.
I combined this challenge with Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch 506 which she revived a month or so ago. SO happy she did this. Sketches are always a challenge for me. She makes it easy -thank you Julee!!
So here she is! In her CORAL glory. I used the patterned paper from the Fleur KaiserCraft pack and used a piece of coral ribbon from the Pantone Color of the Year Ribbon Sampler from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. It's a CAS challenge, so I kept things to the bare minimum and only added one flower from the Petaloo Botanica Minis in coral.  I also used my Copics which was pretty much first time in over 3 years! I'm a bit rusty but it's coming back to me.
Here's the sketch if you want to play along.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
Oh, before I go and speaking of cleaning out supplies, there are many Spellbinders dies and stamp sets I have that I will no longer use. I've considered putting a For Sale page here on my blog listing all the products I want to sell. If this is something that would interest you leave me a comment.


  1. Thanks for the adorable card share

  2. This is so fabulous, Michelle! I pulled out boxes of stamps this summer after I closed Verve. I think you just inspired me to dig into the Bella box and make something just because! So glad you could join me for Mojo Monday.

  3. I LOVE your card!! It is adorable! I also love all of the coral!
