Sunny Sunday

Hey Everyone! I just love Jennifer's idea to stamp an image and use the reverse side! So I used this peacock stamp, cut off his feathers, turned him over and made him a whole new kind of birdie! Fun, fun!

I also used the tree stamp from my previous post and just cut it down to make the right size trunk for my button tree.

Thank you to everyone who joined in on the I {HEART} HERO ARTS BLOG HOP! It was a total success. I don't know about you but I'm still hoping! I check out a few cards, change a diaper, check out a few more, feed a kid, check out a few more... Most of the time when I'm browsing through blogs I'm holding Rachel in one hand and clicking and typing with the other. But I will get to them all! You all are awesome! Special thanks to Lisa Spangler, Laura Vegas and Jennifer McGuire for joining! You rock!

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
