Ribbon Pumpkin

Hey Everyone! Happy Monday! Its challenge time over at Caardvarks. What a great way to start the week, huh? This challenge is totally fun! Just create a card using ribbon in a creative way! Are you ready? Here is my first card:

I was walking through my local craft store last week and one of their projects caught my eye. They wove ribbon together and used in on a layout. I took this idea and put a little spin on it by placing it behind a pumpkin shape I cut out using my Silhouette. I kept the rest of the card super basic to let the pumpkin shine.

Oh, the leaves poking out of the pumpkin are also ribbon. The ribbon I used was from our sponser for this challenge, May Arts. I just love their ribbon. It's always my go to ribbon.

Have fun with this challenge!

Stamps: Hero Arts Happy Hello (sentiment)
Ink: Memories Black
Paper: PTI, Basic Grey
Other: May Arts Ribbon, PTI Button, Machine Stitching

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 !
