I've been compromised
Usually I am faithful to my Stampin' Up! stamps. But there is something about these Elzybells that made me want to stray. I mean, who can resist this little cutie pie?!
I didn't actually purchase her(yet!). I borrowed her from a friend to complete an ATC swap for Taylor's swap. I had lots of fun coloring her! I used my Stampin' Up! markers. I colored her hair Really Rust, her dress Certainly Celery, with the holly leaves Old Olive with Ruby Red berries. I highlighted her with So Saffron ink and my blender pen. Then I pulled out my stardust pen to give her a few subtle touches of sparkle. I also borrowed my friends oval punch and scallop oval punch to punch her out. I punched out the sentiment with my small Stampin' Up! oval punch and popped both the sentiment and image up on stampin' dimensionals. I ticket cornered the corners and put some gems I picked up at the dollar tree last year in each corner. The designer paper is by Rusty Pickle and the base is Old Olive cardstock. I tied some retired yellow organdy Stampin' Up! ribbon around the middle and that was that.
I found the tutorial for the ATC holder on Maria's blog. She has so many amazing things going on on her blog. I modified it a bit by adding more length to the holder and scoring an extra few lines in it to account for the bulk of 10 ATC's fitted in there.
