Elzybells Spring Collection


I love the new Elzybells stamps for spring and Easter. I was surprised to find a thread where people complained and were disappointed that there were no girls in the new line and didn't like the new images at all. I mean the girls are cute, and I have several, but these chicks and bugs and flowers are adorable! Not to mention that a bunch of the girls were just released a month earlier. Anyway...this image fit perfect inside of the egg punch from McGill. I borrowed it from a friend and she told me it was discontinued...which is very disappointing! I haven't looked for it yet myself but I'll give it a go any way. So I stamped the image in Palette Noir and then punched it out so I could make sure it was perfectly fitted inside the egg. I love how the curve of the daisy stem mimics the shape of the egg. I colored it with Copics and sponged a little purple hydrangea Versa Magic around it. The yellow patterned paper is the flipside of one of the gorgeous Imaginisce For Peeps Sake pages and the strip with the chicks on it is from Creative Imaginations. It's a 12x12 sheet with a row of beautiful tulips at the bottom and some blue and polka dots rows as well. The flowers are Primas layered together with a Doodlebug sugared brad in the center. The ribbon is from Michaels. The base card is Die Cuts with a View and the sentiment Printworks. I went over the sentiment with the Sakura star dust pen but didn't really like it after that. It's okay...but I wasn't starting over! Anyway, I will post another Elzy in the morning and if I haven't heard from my blog candy winner by then I will draw another name. Good for all of you that posted and check everyday, huh? Am I being too impatient? I hate waiting, so fair warning and good luck! Goodnight everyone!

Love that little chicky!! Naturally they would discontinue a punch right when I find out about it!! Man! You are not being impatient......people should be checking back!! She didn't leave an e-mail I guess....her loss! I would say "pick me! pick me!!" but I wasn't smart enough to leave a comment in the first place!! pthththt!
