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

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

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 !
