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!

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 !
