It's a New Day Hop and Candy!

Welcome back friends! Today is a very exciting day. Not only is it Friday (yay!!!) but I get to showcase a fabulous stamp by Elisabeth Bell - does it get any better than this? LOL

It's a New Day Release HOP begins at Suzanne's blog. If you've come here from Mary's blog, you are right on track! So here we go :)

Be sure to read all the way to the bottom cuz there is some important CANDY information you'll want to know about!

I'd like to introduce you to Letter to a Friend by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD from her Brand New Spring Sampler Set.

She's colored with my very favorite medium, copics! Blouse, ribbon and flowers - R29 R27 R24 R22; Jeans - B97 B95 B93 B91; Stump - E18 E17 E15 E13; Hat, shoes and paper - E53 E50; Grass - G28 G24 G21 G20. Gotta have some stickles bling, of course, and some Sharpie paint pen for a bit of highlighting!

I've distressed the edges of the paper pieced hearts and envelope as well as the doily and punched borders with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. The gorgeous blue pearls were created with Light Blue Viva Decor Pearl Pen.

Here's a close-up of one of the elements I paper-pieced and attached with dimensionals. I used 1/8" ribbon to create a tiny bow and edged the seams of the quilted heart with stardust stickles. The sentiment was already on the envelope... I just covered it with Diamond Glaze to create an 'epoxy sticker.' I AM being bold to show you this close up cuz real stickers aren't so wobbly looking LOL!

The flower is cut out twice and layered, then stickled around the edge and a cute lil button glued in the center. All that was glued onto my beautiful bow which I created with the Bow Easy - LOVE this tool!
I've used the fabulous sketch from CLP Sketch Challenge #33.
