Elzybells Sneak Peeks!

Good morning all! We've woken up to a bit of fog and very wintery weather this morning...a perfect day to stay home and play with great new stamps!! And speaking of stamps! Elzybells has a realse starting next week and I'd like to share a few samples with you today...just to get your mind thinking about these fun new stamps, and yes, you do want them!!

The first two cards I used the Heartstrings and Heart Strings Sentiments Stamp Sets. They are delicious and perfect for sharing this time of year, as we near Valentines' Day! I also want to tell you about the delicous new coordinating paper and Ink that Elzybells now offers! The Colour Co-cordinates line is so fun! How fun are coordinating products? Yep, the take the guess work out of your designing and make it even easier! Elizabeth gives some great detail on her blog about the new colors, be sure to check it out here!

For card #1 today, I used the Heartstrings stamp set, there is a strip of polka dots in this set...YEA! I used that strip and stamped it over and over in different colors (Sticky Toffee, Strawberry Fool, Pink Lemonade, Vanilla Cookie, Stickey Toffee, and the Strawberry Fool again) to make this fun paper! I stamped the Love from the sentiments stamp set with Sticky Toffee ink. I used my Croner Chomper(fav. new tool!) to round the corners of my card layers and even the card...I love that you can chomp more than one layer of cs with the comper...YEA! I've layerd my white cardstock onto Pink Lemonade(a beautiful shade of pink) cardstock. I mounted it all onto some Chocolate Chip(SU) cardstock. My flowers are from Prima and my velvet brads are from Doodlebug.

For card #2, I also Used the Heartstrings stamps! I can't get enough of that great polka-dot! I used some Chocolate Chip(SU) cardstock for the base of my card again. I used a layer of Vanilla Cupcake cardstock and then stamped my poka-dots again onto a layer of Sticky Toffee cardstock. I used the Sticky Toffe ink to stamp my polka dots. I used my eyelet border punch to make a nice pretty border on my Sticky Toffee layer. I tied it all up with a nice 5/8" chocolate chip grosgrain ribbon(su) and then moved onto my fun little heart!

I wanted to stay pretty monochromatic...so I used choclate chip ink to stamp the great heart image! A polka-dot heart!? What could be better?! I cut the heart out and mounted it on an embossed heart die cut(SU heart embosslit). I added a little vanilla colored button and some dimensionals and there you have it!

Now, I'd like to introduce you to this beautiful little girl, the All My Hearts stamp! Isn't she SO cute!? I am enjoying her so much! My daughter and I have been using her a lot these past few weeks, my daughter wants to stamp this beauty on everything! She's made cards for several friends this week, because she loves this image so much! Isn't that why do it all?!

So, back to the card sorry! I stamped this little beauty on some white cardstock and then colored her in with copic markers. I layered her onto some Strawberry Fool and Pink Lemonade paper. I used my new scallop punch from SU on the Pink Lemonade layer. I used a white cardbase, and a layer of Sticky Toffee cardstock. I used my scallop punch again and then mounted my little darling onto the card. I tied the card up with some beautiful ribbon(from one of my favorite Chrismas gifts!). I stamped the I Love You(from a set I'll share tomorrow...sorry!) used my small oval punch and a large oval punch of Strawberry Fool cs and then had a perfect sentiment for my card! I mounted the sentiment with dimensionals and then added a little Sticky Toffee heart...also mounted with dimensionals.
Card #4 for this post also used this little "All My Hearts" stamp...I told you I couldn't put her down!
I stamped her and colored her in with copic markers. I used my oval nestabilities to punch her out and then make a scallop for her to "stand" on. My patterned paper is from SEI, Cupids Collection. I used a white card base, a strip of pumpkin pie cardstock and my apron lace border punch and then more Cupids' Collection paper. My ribbon is So Saffron 5/8" grosgrain. I stamped the I *heart* you in Pumpkin Pie in and then used my word window punch and modern label punches to add the sentiment to my card. Oh, I almost forgot, she has been glitified with a glitter pen...can't leave out the glitter!
