New Elzybells

My new Elzybells stamps arrived this morning! Very quick delivery indeed. I've used the 'Bethlehem' and 'Little own of Bethlehem' stamps to create these quick and simple cards. I think sometimes that less is more and think that these may become a staple of my Christmas stock this year. The first is stamped onto White Linen cardstock and coloured in blue but I prefer the second one (brown on cream linen).


Here's a close up of the image so that you can see how well they stamp on linen card.


I also ordered some of the storage boxes and they are great. Have spent all morning backing my stamps onto kling-on and sorting them out into groups - only problem is that I only ordered 2 boxes and 1 sheet of kling-on to try them out, now wish I'd bought more!!!
