Elzybells Release Day & Challenge 30

Hi all, sorry for the delay in posting, I have been on a course all day. Sadly i am still not feeling well and haven't been able to give this release my full attention, I do apologise to Elizabeth and my fellow DT members, I will get some more samples made shortly though as I love the stamps. For my samples today i am using the 'Tags - Christmas' set. I have made some mini treat bags. I have stamped the mini snowflake stamp onto the celeophane using Elzybells inky-dinks 'Whipped Cream' hybrid ink and then stamped the tag designs out - these are 4 indidual stamps using either blank ink of Elzybells inky-dinks Sugar Candy pigment ink onto Elzybells Kraft CS. Cut out using Nestabilities dies and added to the bags with Scrappers Floss. Hopefully this will just about count as my Challenge 30 of using glitter/bling - can you see my red baby bling?! Please check out the blog for all the details on how you can enter the challenge and of course pop over to the shop for all the new stamps!

STAMPS: Elzybells Art Stamps. INK: Elzybells Inky Dinks hybrid and pigment inks, Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Elzybells Kraft. ACCESSORIES: Nestabilities dies, colouring pencils, Papermania Adhesive Gems, Karen Foster Scrappers Floss.

Elzybells Christmas

Hello there, today is the third day of sneak peeks for the new Elzybells stamps, only one more sleep till release! Today I have made 2 cards using the same ingredients but different stamps, the first one uses 'Winter Friends' and the second one uses the 'Mini Messages - Christmas' and the 'Tags - Christmas' sets. Both card blanks are pearlescent which I think gives a lovely shimmer and goes really well with the lilac.

STAMPS: Elzybells Art Stamps. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, Doodlebug Designs. ACCESSORIES: Nestabilities dies, Cuttlebug Snowflakes Embossing Folder, Ribbon by Ribbon Oasis, Basic Grey Opaline, Copic Markers.

Elzybells Christmas Mini Messages

Hello and welcome to the second day of Elzybells sneak peeks for the new stamps being released on Thursday. For my samples today I have used the Mini Messages - Christmas set. Full of lovely mini images and sentiments - I love these sets!! My first card used the pudding stamp, I have stamped and coloured with copics, cut out using a Nestie die and mounted to layers of Elzybells Kraft CS and Bazzill brown CS, one wrapped with organza ribbon. Message stamped and pearls added to finish, pretty simple but I do like it!

STAMPS: Elzybells Art Stamps. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, Elzybells, Bazzill Basics. ACCESSORIES: Nestabilities dies, ribbon by Anitas, Kaisercraft Adhesive Pearls, Copic markers.

The second card uses the tree stamp also coloured with Copics and cut with a Nestie die. The paper is by My Minds Eye - thought it looked a bit christmassy! it is available from Dies to Die for.

Woohoo! Today is the the start of a new release from Elzybells, you are going to love them, lots of lovely Christmas images and sentiments. the new stamps will be released on Thursday 22nd October and the DT have sneaks running up to that day. Sadly Charlene is not able to join us for this release but we have the super talented Carly as a Guest. For my card today I have used the 'Winter Couple' stamp and the 'Keep Me Warm' sentiment - how well do those two go together?! I have stamped the couple of ot and coloured with Copics, cut out and added to the base with DST. The base is simply a sheet of Elzybells Kraft CS and then a layer of DB red CS which has been run through my Cuttlebug using the Snowflakes embossing folder. Greeting stamped on Kraft and cut out using a Nestabilities Label die, added with 3d foam. Buttons added with linen thread.
