Inspired by Jenn

Hey Everyone! I'm back! I took a little break from posting and blogging in December but I was still creating and peaking at all my favorite blogs. So I'll jump right back in and share a card I made that was inspired by the talented Jenn Biederman.

I put a little Jenn in my style by using rich muted tones, distress ink and even black machine stitching! :)

It was fun to take on this little self imposed challenge! Congrats on your Win a Day Jenn!
I'll be back tomorrow to share more! Happy New Year!

Stamps: Hero Arts Cloud Background, Four Leaf Grid, Cling Dots, Be Happy
Ink: VersaMark, Black Memories Dye, Distress Ink
Paper: PTI, Bazzil
Other: White Pen, Machine Stitching, Prisma Color Pencils

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! 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
