Pretty Dutch Bella...

Bellas are still some of my fav stamps! I am especially happy that I can get Bellas close by since there is a LSS 3 hours north from where I live. are probably laughing but I truly LIVE IN THE STICKS! The kind that has one grocery store, 2 gas stations, no traffic light. So I rely on stocking up when I am "out and about" (how's that for Canadiana?).
If you don't already know, Bellas come unmounted. What that means is you receive RUBBER only. No foam and no wood block. The rubber is grey. I have heard mixes reviews on unmounted stamps but I am happy with them. If you are more of a foam backing kinda stamper, you can either order backings for your stamps (and mount them on acrylic--clear--blocks) or just use a good tape to hold them down.
