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!

Ellen Hutson & Avery Elle Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone! I'm SO excited for today's blog hop! This collaboration set is amazing and I can't wait to see how all of the talented designers used it today and how YOU will use it! To create my card I started by stamping, die cutting and coloring several of the images from Peek a Boo Pals Camp Wanna Stamp (love that name!). It's available HERE with stamps and dies or HERE with just stamps.  Next, I blended and splashed ink on a piece of cardstock to create the background. Then, I stamped the lightening bugs and added their glow, along with coloring their wings white. TIP: I used a Q-Tip to add just a small amount of Distress Oxide to make the bugs glow.  Finally, I added the sentiment and adhered everything to a card base. This set is amazing and it's PACKED full of images! There are still more images that I can't wait to stamp. Check out the set... Next up is Heather Campbell . She is SO talented, I'm sure you'll love what she created. Finally, it wou

Mama Elephant: October Anniversary Stampede!

It's Mama Elephant Birthday Stampede time!  This is so awesome, right? I'm so excited you've joined me from Stephanie's blog! Today I'm a sharing a lot of stamping goodness! Now that I'm counting, my card uses 4 new Mama Elephant stamp sets ! This card all started with the sentiment. My kids are always buzzing around the house singing and one of their favorite is Everything is Awesome (Lego Movie anyone?). :) I started with a faint pencil line to create AWESOME from the new Block Party Letters . I colored them in with Copics and then did some creative masking and stamping from Happy Everything to add the beginning of the sentiment. Next I stamped the penguin and hat (from the new Artic Penguins ), colored them and die cut them for a perfect cut. The soft, grey striped background was created using the new Boutique Borders . All stamps and dies can be purchased NOW at the Mama Elephant store HERE . Next up? The very talented JJ Bolton !
