Sneak Peek Day 2

Good morning friends! Today is another fun day of sneak peeks from the new Elzybells Release and I've got some fun to share! I am having a really great time working with this great floral and foliage sets...perfect for spring!

Today I'll be sharing some of the images from the Tags-Floral Circles stamp set, as well as a few from the sets from yesterday! (I just can't get enough!). This first card is one of my favorite flowers...the red poppy! I was really excited to see it in the Floral Fervour stamp set...one of my all time favorite blooms for sure!
For this card, I stamped the red poppy several times with real red and chocolate chip inks(su)and then cut my square paper into 4 pieces to make my background. I layerd my poppy paper onto old olive cardstock. I used a border punch(su) to create this border out of Chocolate Chip(su). I layered old olive ribbon across the bottom of the card and added a nice red button. My center poppy was stamped first with red ink and then my sentiment-happy mother's day-was stamped with olive ink. I layerd my poppy on chocolate chip cardstock and the mounted it with foam adhesive.
For this next card, I have had these colors in my head for a few days. I used crushed curry and real red(su) for this card. My card is a white base, then a layer of polka-dot curry paper. I wrapped a ribbon around and tied a bow, added some tulle and a button(surprised!?). My stamped image is from the Tags-floral circles. I stamed this great little poppy image with curry ink three times, then added my sentiment with real red. I mounted my white paper onto the curry cardstock and then mounted it with dimensional adhesive.

I hope you've enjoyed the sneak peeks...tomorrow will be more fun and more samples! Thanks so much for stopping by today!! Take care and make it a great one!
