Pink Pink Pink

Hey Everybody! For this card I had a few design ideas in mind before I got started. I liked Dawn's scallops here and I wanted to try another version of a butterfly like I did here. Usually before I start a card I pull out all the papers I want to use. For this card I pulled out a bunch of pinks, kraft and brown. After I put the pink elements together I ditched the browns and went with black. I don't use it often but am glad I did for this card. Maybe it will inspire me to use it more often. :)

I wasn't looking forward to using my border punch for the scallop detail so I came up with the idea to cut out a bunch of scallop rectangles using my Nestabilities and trimmed them in to rows. Much easier. :)

Materials:
[Love You Butterfly Card]
Stamps: Hero Arts Heart Winged Butterfly, Many Hearts
Ink: Memories Black Die, StazOn Black
Paper: PTI, BoBunny, Bazzill Swiss Dots Embossed
Other: Black Hero Arts Gems, String, ShortCuts Acetate, American Crafts Buttons

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! www.mamaelephant.com 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
