My First ATC

Hey Everyone! Happy Wednesday! It is Wednesday, right? Its been one of those weeks. Anyways, I'm super excited about this week's Hero Arts challenge....ATCs (artist trading cards)! Sorta like a baseball card of the craft world. For those of you who don't know they are 2.5 x 3.5 inches so the "canvas" is much smaller than the normal 4.25 inch square or 4.25 x 5.5 inch card. My creativity has been a little dried up lately and this was just the pick me up I needed!

Materials:
Stamps: Hero Arts Heart Winged Butterfly, Woodgrain Design Block, Scalloped Borders
Ink: Hero Arts Pink Shadow Ink, Peeled Paint Distress Ink, Walnut Stain Distress Ink, Memories Black
Paper: PTI, Basic Grey
Other: Hero Arts Buttons, Unknown Pom Pom Ribbon

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
