More Fun with Elzy ~


This is my newest Elzybells Art Stamp ~ "Sprinkle Snowflakes". Isn't it so sweet? When I first saw the Elzy stamps I was surprised how tiny they are (approx 2"), but they are perfect for cardmaking images. Also, I really am amazed at the rubber quality and fabulous detail of these stamps.

Lately, I've created so many BLUE snowflake cards, so today I decided to change it up and went with PINK! This layout didn't end up quite like I had planned. The little tag was supposed to go in the bottom right corner, but as a last finishing touch, I stamped a pink snowflake in the upper right corner and Oops!!! Dang, I messed it up! Has that ever happened to you? I've learned lots of tricks for when this happens, but I really thought this card was doomed. I'm still not sure about the tag floating up there, but it was there or the trash! LoL :) I hope you like it!

Warmest wishes and friendly smiles, Pam :)

Yes it has happened to me. LOL But in your case it happened because the tag is perfect in the upper corner! Love the pink my fave color. And all the texture. I don't think you could ever make a bad card Pam!!

I love this card. I like it at the top as it looks as though the sentiment is falling down into snowflakes. (ok maybe just my weird imagination-but looks ok to me Ü)

Wasn't it beautiful when the sun shown on the ice making every limb and grass blade look as if it had tiny diamonds on it.

Your card is precious. I love those Elzybells. The tag and layout looks exactly as it should be. :D

Oh, how I love the pink snowflakes card. Such an unusual and perfect color for the theme. The warm wishes from above seem like you planned it. I'm loving your stitching again.
