For Christmas I received this Elphine House stamp from a very good friend who lives halfway across the world from me. She knows I love Elisabeth Bell's designs and sent me two new stamps that I couldn't wait to use. Thank you, Julie, for the stamps!
This sweet image's name is Laura's Yummy Pudding. It appears that Laura isn't the only one who thinks it's yummy.
This cute little image is colored with Copics and I added Frantage Aged Ivory Embossing Powder around her and around the Spellbinder Die surrounding her. The "Around The Page" punch is by Martha Stewart. There are 2 laces and ribbon across the bottom of this card and the lace is from a local lace/fabric remnant warehouse (yes, feel free to eat your heart out that we have a lace/fabric remnant warehouse type store here in Phoenix, AZ). The ribbon and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The crocheted flower behind the cherry blossom is homemade. I put a button in the center of the bow and used embroidery floss in the middle of the button. The butterfly...isn't it an outstanding butterfly...is by Whimsy. I was super generous with Diamond Stickles on the butterfly. The faceted jewels I used for the butterfly body and in the bottom corners of the card are by Prima. My sentiment is by Stampin' Up.
Here's a close-up of this beautiful Elisabeth Bell stamp:
