Sending Birthday Wishes

Hi Everyone! Happy May Day! First I want to say hello to my new followers. :) I really do appreciate all of you that read my blog, get email updates, follow and especially leave comments!

For today's cards I used Polka Dot Basics II, Wishing You and Everyday Button Bits (for the setiment) from Papertrey Ink.

There are lots of little details on this card. I scored a lattice design on the Aqua Mist card stock and curled out the top of the tulips to bring them to life. The focal point was cut out with Nestabilities Label One. Since I wanted it a little bit longer, I cut it out twice, trimmed down the second piece, taped them together, then covered the seem with buttons.

I finished the card with a black scallop trim piece and some black machine stitching. All ink, paper and buttons are PTI.

Hope you have a great day and are enjoying your weekend!

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
