Best For Last

Hey Everyone! So I saved my favorite clear card projects for last. If you know me, you know I'm a little addicted to owl stamps. They are just so fun to stamp!

I had to get creative for the tree trunk on this little card. Yep, HAD to. I got a little ink smudge on the bottom of the trunk after I had all the base pieces taped together. Who wants to pull them all apart to fix it? Not me. I don't have the large wood grain stamp so I stamped my little one a couple times, cut out some circles and ta dah! Fixed. I think I like it better. Love those kinds of mistakes.

This owl card was super simple to put together. I had my CARDS magazine laying out, flipped it open and pulled a little bit of inspiration from the two cards I saw. Its a great way to get some fast mojo!

Hope you've been inspired to try out some cards using acetate. Don't forget to visit Caardvarks and enter the current sketch challenge. The deadline is July 17th. Details are HERE.

Hopefully I'll have another card to share soon. Lets just say my hands are super inky today. :)

Thanks for visiting!

Happy Sunday everybody! I didn't think I'd be entering this week's Hero Arts challenge but I was reading through my favorite blogs yesterday and was totally inspired by Jennifer Holmes . Love when that happens! Within a few hours I had this card put together. I had fun adding a few extra details. I curled the beak around a pencil to make it curve. Then put two layers of dimensional tape under the middle to support the shape. I also made accordion feet. These can fold flat for mailing. :) Materials: Hero Arts Stamps (Basic Lower & Upper Case Letters, Wavy Leaf Pattern, Many Hearts), Hero Arts Flowers, Hero Arts Button and Gems, Black Buttons, BoBunny Paper, String. Have a great day!

Mama Elephant March Stampede!

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop! Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store! I am so excited to share the new stamp set Ella & Friends with you! There are so many fun images to choose from in this set that all centers around the BEST elephant stamp ever. ;) I started my scene by stamping the elephant, then I masked in the bunny and bubble blower. Finally, I stamped the bubbles, puddle and splashes. I was SO fun to create. I colored the images with Copics and added a little ink to complete my scene. I trimmed it down to fit inside of the Instalove Creative Cuts and stamped the sentiment. I know you'll agree that stamping this set is super fun but first... To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is picking 3 winners to win their choice of stamp set! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede. You have up to 4 chances to qualify to
