Lucy's First Challenge

Hey Everybody! I made this card for Lucy's first card challenge DAYS ago but with the hustle and bustle of the holidays arriving (and crazy kiddos), I'm just getting aroung to posting it. Oh how I love the holidays! Seriously, they are my favorite! Just got the tree up tonight (no wasting time around here!) and lights on the house will go up tomorrow! Yippee!

K, so back to my card...Lucy's challenge was to use aqua, pink and kraft.

I used one of my favorite Hero Arts owl images. Since the stamped image shows the owl with closed eyes, I added goggly eyes to wake him up!

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Stamps: Hero Arts Sending Happy Thoughts, Cloud Design Block
Ink: Memories Black Dye, VersaMark
Paper: BoBunny, PTI
Other: Hero Arts Flower, Button; Apron Lace Fiskars Punch; String; Nestabilities Label One Die; Cuttlebug

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 !
