Earth Day Birthday

Happy Earth Day! Today my sweet little baby girl turned one! So before I share my cards today I just wanted to share her cute little picture. :)

Here are the invitations I made for her party. Simple and fun...easy to mass produce. The hardest part was cutting out the birds and I did that while watching TV. They were stamped using Bird Watching Additions and Polka Dot Basics II.

I love this format for invitations. Especially for the kiddos. That way proud grandparents and friends can post them on the refrigerators and they look nice in the baby books and scrapbooks. :)

I made this card with some of the scrap pieces from the invitations. I also love the unexpected use of Take Note. I purchased the PTI set to make altered notepads but it worked perfectly for my lined circle.

The card was finished with a few PTI buttons and a setiment from Scattered Showers. All paper and colored ink is also PTI goodness.

Hope you have a great day!

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
