Elzybells..Thinkin' of You

Hey everyone, I just picked a name for another prize! Today's winner is Wendy!! She wrote this comment to my snail cards:

Holy cow, Mish....these are so cuteeeeeee!! I love that you showed us 2 different papers with that adorable snail image and added the slimy stuff. LOL I just recently purchase some Copic Markers from Ellen and I am lovin them!! Thank you for your everyday inspiration!Wendy

Congratulations Wendy!! I checked out your blog too and you're a GREAT stamper!! Here's the link to Wendy's BLOG if you want to check it out! Wendy, your prize package will look just like the last prize I posted HERE.


So on to today's card. My friend HB sent me these cute Elzybell stamped images. I think the little girl is just the cutest thing! I paired her up with an A Muse sentiment and use Making Memories papers from my Spring Inspiration Station. I used my fun postage stamp layout again since this stamped image was fairly small. It's always nice to have these kinds of cards waiting in my stash basket. Thanks for the images HB!! Be sure to check out her link above, she is a FANTASTIC stamper.....and a great friend too!!


Note: I got lots of questions about Copic markers and I promise to do a special post addressing all your questions.....and a review of how to do basic shading with Copic markers. You can do it!! I'll help you!!!!!

I love the way you always make 'sets' out of the card you make - I have to start doing that - and your cards are so crisp and clean - I enjoy your blog!

Hi Mish, OMG these are just so adorable. I love this layout and can't wait to try it. Hopefully Friday I'll have news from the doctor and I can stamp once again. Well at least I can admire your beautiful cards and seeing my favorite paper being used. Isn't it nice to share images! Thanks for all the inspiration. Have a great day! :)

Tracy said...

Congrats to Wendy! I love the Elzybells images but can't justify the money right now, plus the images are so tiny. But boy, are they cute!!

Dawn Easton said...

These cards are TOTALLY adorable! I love this layout you have been using and keep meaning to try it out for smaller images. Can't wait for you to explain Copics and shading. I have a set now but don't shade...lol
Have a fab day!

Sally said...

I LOVE this postage stamp layout! Infact, the last round of postage stamp layout cards inspired so much that I went and bought some Itty Bitty's from Ellen's store and the square nestabilites from PaperTrey Ink so that I can do my own! Keep 'em coming...

What adorable cards...very sweet! I CAN'T wait for your Copic tips! I am about to take the plunge and get some more colors. (I only have one so far!)

sbehrns said...

Beautiful as always. Just curious though...I know you often wrap your ribbon the entire front of your cards. Could you show what it looks like on the inside? Do you cover it up or just leave it as is?

Kerry Davis said...

Mish - I LOVE your cards - your blog is my absolute FAVE! I have to know where you got that gorgeous b/g paper - with the pink & blue flowers and stuff?? I loved it when you posted the chick note pads and I'm still lovin' it! My LSS doesn't have anything even close. . .
Can't wait to get your scoop on the copics...

Wendy said...

Hey Mish!! What a surprize that was reading your blog entry today!! I WON I WON!! I sat at my computer and just stared at it, thinking..OMG, that's ME! LOL What a wonderful surprize along with your beautiful Elzybell's cards. Mish, they are fantastic! I love that you matched them up with the MM Garden Party papers. Such a springy look & feel to them. I'm anxious to hear about more info on the Copic markers. I will say..they are worth every cent!!

Thanks again! Nice job too!!
Wendy

Chrissy said...

Hi Mish - those cards are so freakin cute! I love the bright, fun colors you matched up to make it like a little ray of sunshine! :-)
I can't wait for your Copic post ... I am going to order some next week so I can start coloring and shading like Master Mish! :-)
Thanks for all the wonderful ideas!

Christine said...

I LOVE these Elzybells! Your such a great inspiration. I'm looking foward to your Copic "workshop". I love the results they give but with all those colors it's overwhelming as well.

Very cute cards! I love the spring feel...it is time though we havn't had much winter here in Texas. Thanks for sharing!

Kraftin' Kimmie said...

Gosh Michelle!! I'm so inspired by the way you make multiples of your cute designs! I tend to sweat and toil over one design and then stress myself out to do something totally different!! I almost never duplicate the same card!!! Why am I doing that???? Making more work for myself I guess!!! I'm taking a page out of your book, so to speak and making duplicates now!!! THANKS!!!

Cathy Whiteman said...

I love both the Elzybells and the snail cards. I need to stop checking out your blog so I don't go broke (just kidding). Now I gotta have all these!
