Spring Elzys

March 12th, 2008

I finally got some Elzybells from the Spring release.  I wanted them all and it was hard to narrow them down, but I finally settled on a couple of chicks, 3 girls and some sentiments.  Now I just need some time to sit and PLAY! 

My first card had to be with the Easter Chick since Easter is almost here.  I’ve never been a big fan of Orchid Opulence, but I had it out on my table from my class prep and it does remind me of Easter so I grabbed some other *Easter* colors (Barely Banana, Bashful Blue, Gable Green) and went to work.

I pulled out my Prisma pencils and gamsol -something I don’t do very often – to color this adorable little image.  I think I’ll be using them more with the the Elzys since the images are so small – the pencils just seem the easiest to me.  Stitched Background was stamped in Brocade Blue on the Bashful Blue panel.  I’m really glad I got this background stamp – it is much more versatile than I originally thought.  Jenn Balcer pushed me over the edge on that one – thanks Jenn!  Daisy Field was wheeled in Green Galore on a Gable Green strip and then scallops were created with a slit punch.

The little white flower at the bottom is a rub-on from the SAB rub-on set and then I added some doodles with my white gel pen.  Can you see the tiny rhinestones on the Easter egg and the little flowers next to it?  You know I love rhinestones and I’m so excited about this latest find.

I went to the rubber stamp convention in Carson this last weekend with my friends Joy and Leann and we spied these wonderful packages of tiny rhinestones – round, square, teardrop, hearts – and get this – they were only $2.50 a package.  I’m guessing there must be at least 300 stones in a package and check out the cool carousel holder!   I scooped up the round and square, plus a mini package of pink hearts.  When I flipped over the package to the back I saw that the instructions involved nail polish.  LOL!  They are made by Adoro Cosmetics, INC for fingernail embellishment!  Maybe I’ll take them along to my next nail appointment for a little special bling!

Lots to do today to prep for my luncheon on Friday since I work tomorrow.  I have another Elzys card started and sitting on my table – hope I can squeeze in the time to finish it.  Oh and just this morning I discovered the Mini VSN Challenge Week going on at SCS.  Not sure how I had missed that, but there sure are some fun challenges posted.  Check it out if you can.

Thanks for stopping by.

    I get these rhinestones put on my toes when I get a pedicure. They put them in the middle of a flower they make with white nailpolish. Never even thought of these for cards. Too cute. Love the elzybell spring collection too.
