Sweet November Preview Day 3 "Arabella"

It's day three of the Sweet November sneak peeks. The stamps in this series will be available for sale at All That Scraps on January 3. Today I am working with the artistic Design Team of Traci Porter and Rachel Schneider as well as the creator of the Sweet November line, Amy Young to introduce "Arabella". Be sure to enter for the giveaway on Amy's blog.

I worked with different hair colors for me (black) on both cards. As you can see, I still have room for improvement on that endeavor. For the first card, I used paper from the same Bo Bunny pad I used on yesterday's project. To carry out the heart theme I added a heart shaped doily to the background at an angle and trimmed off the excess. Since the image is in a sitting position, I placed the princess on the double ribbons after cutting her out.

For my second Arabella card, I stamped the image then cut it out with a Spellbinders Nestabilties die, cutting away portions of the image. I kept it simple as the sweet and oh-so-princess related "Enchanted" paper by Imaginisce didn't need a lot of extra frou frou.

  1. Wowzers! TWO beautiful cards today and I love them both! It always tickles me to see how others interpret an image and I think it is so cool that you saw Arabella wearing a lovely veil. I never would have thought of that but now I'm thinking I'll have to lift that idea sometime 'cause it looks so fab!
    You rock Nancy! :)

  2. Love the first card, especially the hearts paper and the pearls on her dress!

  3. lovely! Love how you gave her short hair and made a veil - wonderful!
