Caardvarks Hop - Day 2

Hey Everyone! Welcome to day 2 of the Caardvarks blog hop! The more I played with Core'dinations cardstock the more fun I had! There are so many fun techniques to explore.

Since the inside of the paper is a different color than the top when you tear it, sand it, crinkle it or emboss it you get a fun two toned look. On this card I embossed the cardstock with my Cuttlebug then sanded the top! Easy and fun!


Materials:
[Hi There Owl Card]
Stamps: Hero Arts Four Owls
Paper: Core'dinations Core Essentials
Ink: ColorBox Chalk, Memories Black Die
Other: Hero Arts Flower, Making Memories Brads, Hero Arts Black Gems, Machine Stitching, C'Bug Embossing Folder

Tres Chic-kie

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
