New Elisabeth Bell Digi Release Today - Pat a Cake!


Hello Everyone and Happy Wednesday! Today I can show you a card I made with the brand-new Elisabeth Bell digital stamp called "Pat a Cake" from the Elisabeth Bell Digital Collection, which is released today! Isn't that just a gorgeous image? I fell in love with it instantly when I saw it! I am a huge fan of Elisabeth and her art work and she never ceases to amaze me with her drawings and stamp creations! It is an honor for me that I got the chance, along with some of my fellow Belles 'n Whistles DT siters, to design with this image to present it to you today! Make sure to check the blogs of the Belles 'n Whistles DT (see my sidebar please for the links) for more stunning creations with this adorable image! This is a very versatile image and can be used for creating Easter cards as well as any other season or occasion. You'll find more information on Elisabeth's blog right HERE and to buy the digi stamp you can go HERE.

To create my card I used this weeks awesome sketch from Priscilla at Midnight Madness and this is my entry for MMSC #43. MMSC is also having a huge giveaway this Friday!!!

Some details on my card: I colored the image using my Copics and also the Copic airbrushing system for the background. DP is from 'We R Memory Keepers' and CS is Bazzill. Butterflies are punched out using Martha Stewart and EK Success Punches. Flowers are from Prima. Half-peaklr swirls are self created using half-pearl strands. Leave punch is from 'The Punch Bunch' and the Stickles I used are Stardust, Waterfall & Fruit Punch.








Copics used:
