Happy Monday morning friends! And happy Elzybells Release day! Today is the day you can go to the Elzybells store and add these great new products--Stamps, Paper, Ink, etc., to your shopping cart!! The store can be found here, so please shop to your hearts delight! (With this release there are several great hearts to delight yours!)

My first card today introduces you to Seasonal Sentiments. It's a great set of lined stamps...with small stamps to correspond with the sentiments! It's a great one to play with!!

I used Strawberry Fool for my card base. I stamped the "my valentine" stamp several times with strawberry fool ink and then added some sticky toffee hearts. I used my corner chomper to round the bottom corners of the card and white layer. I stamped three hearts from the Heart Strings stamp set, and then cut each one out (my nestabilites are taking an eternity to get here!!). I used strawberry fool, pink lemonade and sticky toffee inks. I used dimensionals on the sticky toffe heart. I finished the card up with a pretty red bow...and there you have it!


This next card didn't photograph so well! It's got a bit more interest in real life, I just couldn't get it to show in the photo!!



For this second card, I used some Raspberry Fizz cardstock and ink. I stamped the "let your heart bloom" with Rapberry Fizz ink and then added one stamped image in real red ink. I also added the hearts with Real Red ink. I added a strip of Real Red grosgrain ribbon and then added my bloom! My bloom was made with some tissue paper I found at target the other day. I cut about 5 "folds" of tissue paper with three different sizes of my Bloom nestabilites dies. I layered the blooms and then added a large white brad...then "fluffed" the layers.

I hope you've had a chance to catch some of the other DT samples, I've had a great time looking at all the great creations made with the stamps and products for the release today!! Take a minute and enjoy the creative juices that are flowing!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate you letting me know you were here and let me know what you think of my posts...thanks a bundle!! I'm all giddy, I'm heading to CHA this week and am SO excited!! I'll be a the Lizzie Anne booth and also spending a bit of time at the Splitcoast Stampers booth....so I'm hoping to get a chance to say hello to many of you!!

Take care and see you tomorrow!!
