Brand New Elzybells!

I've been so excited to show you a couple of my new Elzybells Stamps! My first love is Stampin' Up, but Elz has wiggled her way right into my heart and into my stamping supplies. I splurged and sent for 4 new of the newly released stamps. Click HERE to check out the other new Elzybells stamps, but I have to warn you...going there can be VERY hazardous to your credit card (lol!!). Don't say I didn't warn you. I used a bunch of SU SAB rub-ons on my first card. The flowers on the DP as well as the sentiment and the flower on the button are all FREE rub-ons from the SAB catalog = ) !!! Just incase you haven't seen the SAB catalog yet...click HERE to take a peek! Once you start using those rub-ons, you'll find that you can put them just about anywhere...they are seriously a LOT of fun to use! I made the 2nd card earlier this week for the SCS Color Challenge, to use Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise & Kraft (CC153). That is one fun color combo and I combined it with Wednesday's Sketch Challenge, SC163. I reversed the sketch, but still used the basic elements. You can see the all details for the sketch challenge HERE. I used rub-ons for the sentiment on that card too and for the little flowers on the center of the wheels! I'm telling you...once you start using those, it's amazing how many places you find that would be just perfect for a rub-on! Rub-ons are new to me and I'm finding that they are a wonderful compliment to the stamps and other accessories I'm used of using!
I have 2 more Elzs stamps that haven't even seen ink yet (gasp!). I hope to fix that later this week. I also have some blog candy and fun SU workshop projects to show you very soon! I mentioned in an earlier post that Cami helped me get my beautiful new watermark (I just love it....it makes me feel like a big-kid stamper!) and I wanted to thank her again (and again, and again!). She arranged for Beth over at Frecked Fun Designs to send it to me. What I forgot to mention was that Beth also did a brand new banner for Cami (stampalittlelovebaby)...so be sure to pop over and check it out. It's just absolutely the most perfect banner for Cami, the queen of pink! Beth does an awesome job. Thanks again Cami & Beth...I appreciate you both VERY much!!!

Wow! These are very cute cards. I would never have thought to use a rub-on on a button. The color combo on your second card is very cheery. TFS!
