ELISABETH BELL STAMPS AVAILABLE ONLY FROM SWEETPEA STAMPS






Over on the Sweetpea DT blog this week Elisabeth Bell is being showcased as the Spotlight artist.

My first two cards are from Elisabeth Bell's first collection of rubber stamps - all available as single stamps. There are three to chose from - I've used two of them and have the third one on order.

The first one is called Kiki with Dolly and is just so cute. I just had to have this one! It's wonderful how stamps can invoke memories and this one makes me smile as my son loved the beach when he was small.

I have tried to create the feeling of summer holidays using a number of dies - such as Film strip and ticket dies as well as the flowers and flourishes.

Card 2

The next one is called Little Curls and has to be my most wanted stamp - having seen it as a pencil sketch. I was just so pleased when it was made into a rubber stamp and had to use it straight away!

I'm not sure why I found it so compelling - maybe it's the wonder of being young and full of wonder! Or my son wouldn't thank me for saying he had the most wonderful curly hair
which he still has of course and had he been a girl could have have his hair styled just like this!

And now the finished card. I hope you think I have done this fabulous stamp justice!

And these are the latest collection of stamps by Elisabeth Bell available here at Sweetpea stamps.

This one is called Sweet is Summer and is available as a single stamp.


Again what can I say about this beautiful image - another one I was waiting for!

I love this image and how versatile it is to use by just changing the colour scheme and you have a totally different looking project. I love the bright vibrant colours you get in the summer and appear on swimming costumes - probably the only time we wear such bright colours together!
