Elzybell!



Good Monday Morning!
I can't believe how good I feel today! Usually I have the Monday blahs, but today I feel great! Over the weekend I managed to get a lot done and on top of that, I went to see the movie Twilight twice!!! I guess I really liked it to pay to see it twice. Well...enough babbling and onto my card:)

While going through my stash of growing stamps, I came across this petite Elzybells Art stamp that I purchased from A Muse last winter. This stamp was pretty hot last year and in my mind it still is an awesome stamp. The sketch idea for this card is based on Mojo Monday #60 which is designed by Julee Tilman. I really like this verstile sketch idea alot and thanks for the inspiration Julee!



The Elzybells Art Stamp is from A Muse and the name of the stamp is Winter Girl. The card stocks used are Stampers Select White(PTI) and pink pirouette and kiwi kiss (SU). The design paper is from Imaginisce (Snowy Jo Cup of Cheer) and full of Christmas sentiments which is why I omitted a sentiment. The inks used were Adirondack Pitch Black and Copic Markers. To further embellish my card, I used my sewing machine and sewed around the edges of the DP. I also used my lace border punch (Martha Stewart) , corner rounder punch (SU) and small oval templates (Nestabilities). To enhance the look of snow, I used Crystal Snow glitter from Stampendous and added ribbon, silver cord, pearls and a tiny bell.

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow to see what's up with Little C's Weekly Challanges! Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!

So cute, Risa!!! I was a lil' bit in a slump myself this weekend. Hopefully I've kick'd it to the curve. I love this card, and the colors you've choose to use - it's a very cute stamp!!! I have to work on my LC's challenge today.

Hugs,

Beautiful card Risa, I luv the colors!

I know what you mean about growing stamp collection, I think after the holidays i need to organize my stamps & put all the images in a binder by catagory so that I know what I have especially the sentiments. I have stamps that I have not even used yet & sentiments that I could have used but didn't realize I had. That's a project for January! Hehehe!!!
