Elzybells Challenge

I guess since I took the time to create this blog, I should start posting my creations on it, instead of letting it get filled with cyber-cobwebs. Just bear with me as I continue to ‘tweak’ some things. I’m still playing around with a header, but there’s no sense to hold off postings. I’ll still post most of my creations in my SplitcoastStampers Gallery since I do so many challenges. I plan to keep my posts pretty simple ~ a photo of the creation, basic details, and a brief description. I know most blog hoppers are just looking for inspiration and the details; my personal blog will continue my chatty ways. Here’s a card I created for the Sketch Challenge on the Elzybells blog. I stumbled on this line over a year ago and am in LOVE! The company is based in the UK and while some images are available in the US, the best come from across the pond. The stamps are larger and have a ‘hefty’ wood block. Although Elizabeth recently said the company will be switching primarily to acrylic stamps for easier storage and savings on shipping. I understand, but I’ll miss the old style.

The Outside of My Card The Inside of My Card
INS AND OUTS Inspiration: My dad was a huge part of my life and his sudden death (almost 4 years ago) created a huge void in my life. I had a great relationship with Dad and as the only daughter (and the baby) was ‘somewhat’ spoiled. He loved, protected, respected and cherished me; truly worthy of the title of a Knight in Shining Armor (or Armour if you buy your stamps in the UK). :) Challenges: Elzybells ~ Sketch Stamps: A Fairytale Ending (Elzybells); Sentiment is computer generated Paper: PTI White, JoAnn card base, SU Designer Paper Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics (Prince/Castle ~ E00, E11, E31, E37, C1, C5, R81, G21, B21, B34, W1; Princess ~ R81, E00, E02, E31, E37, B21, B24, Spicas)
Accessories: SU Grosgrain Ribbon, Pop-Up Dots
