Good Morning!!! (ok, so it maybe isn't morning for some of you when you read this but it is morning when I am posting!)
I took my kids (and Joey's friend Warner who is like our 3rd kid!) to see Alvin yesterday. Oh my gosh, it was so cute. The kids loved it and I enjoyed it too! I got NO stamping done yesterday but did get cleaning, laundry, in-laws Christmas gifts on their way and was so pooped last night, I went to bed at 8!!! Today we have another busy day planned so luckily I have a few cards I had finished a few days ago, to post! I am now working on my Christmas thank you notes and the Elzybells work perfectly! My friend Jennifer sent me some Elzybells images and I was so excited to use them so here is my card!
Oh and Jennifer gave me the decorative paper too! Isn't it great!! The base of my card is Celery with a mat of Real Red. The upper cardstock of the top mat is Whisper White and then the striped decorative paper which I don't know who it is by. I stamped the Whisper White using Bashful Blue ink and the Season of Joy swirl. I added some snowflakes I punched, ran through my Xyron, smashed them in Dazzling Diamonds glitter and adhered using Bashful Blue brads. The beautiful blue ribbon is from Flourishes. The thank you beads are really old and are actually on an earring hoop. I adhered it on the ribbon using silver cord.
The Elzy's were stamped using Basic Black ink on Whisper White cardstock. I colored the Elzybells with a blender pen and Bashful Blue, Real Red, Wild Wasabi and Close to Cocoa ink pads. I added Stardust Stickles to the girls outfits and my favorite Martha Stewart white glitter for the snow on the ground. I used my ticket corner punch on the focal image, matted on the decorative paper and then punched Celery cardstock using my Marvy scalloped punch. I added Real Red brads in all four corners and mounted it on the top of my card using dimensionals.
I hope you all have a great day! Happy Stamping!!!
