Poppy Seed Challenge #2


Hi Everyone! I'm a big fan of Lisa Johnson. She is one of the best. She just started doing her own challenges and they are so fun!

The current challenge is to combine buttons, polka dots and the color light moss. I made a few cards inspired by her challenge and also by spring clothing (a fun tip Tami used on the Hero Arts blog this week).


The first card was inpired by a denim jacket I have. The large flower was embossed then shaded with white colored pencil. I used cling dots for my background. I like how the dots make the card a little less serious.


The second card was inspired by this girl's dress I saw last week at the Gap. Isn't it fun?

Here is my card. I used the Bird on a Branch stamp from Hero Arts paired with some buttons and gems from PTI. The sentiments on both cards are from the Hero Art's Thoughtul Messages clear set. Oooo and did you spot the new PTI medium scallop die cut! I'm totally in love. :)

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you had a great day!

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 !
