Hopping with Elizabeth Craft Designs

I was first introduced to Elizabeth Craft Designs at my first CHA. I loved the peel off stickers and how easy it was to color the designs with Tombow's Dual Brush Pens. So needless to say I am so excited to be hopping with them this week.

If you came from Jacqueline Smith's blog you are in the right spot. If not, you will want to start at the beginning HERE.

Els was so generous and sent us the loveliest pack of various Peel Off Stickers as well as a pkg of watercolor paper, an embossing folder and word cutting die.

I wanted to use a little bit of everything she sent so here are my creations for this hop. First off, I love bee/honey images. I think it comes from my name being Debbie and meaning "industrious one", that it just makes a great fit. So, I chose to create this with the Peel Off Sticker Sheet called Lady Bugs (although it also has bees and butterflies on it). I rec'd the sheet in gold. It also comes in silver and black. I am definitely needing more of these sheets! I ♥ these bees (and the butterflies and lady bugs)!!


I stuck the bee sticker on 90# Water Color Paper and colored the bee yellow and black using Tombow's Dual Brush Pens: 993, N75, N45 and blender pen. The pens blend beautifully on this paper! I made another notepad holder using the above items as well as Tombow's Xtreme Adhesive.

For my second project, I created a card using Elizabeth Craft's Congratulations die & Swirly Curves Embossing Folder. After embossing the background piece, I brushed white ink on to make the design pop more. I used Xtreme Adhesive to adhere the embossed piece, Mono Adhesive Dots to adhere the ribbon and Power Tabs on the flower and button.

Now for the fun part...  Here is a look at all the goodies you can win.
