Beetle Bug Birthday Card

Hi Everyone! I have another birthday card to share today. My 2 1/2 year old son calls these cars "beetle bugs" and when he saw this card he said "is this for me's?". He is a funny little guy.

I created this scene by layering several different green Papertrey Ink cardstock colors. The car was inked using a combination of ColorBox Chalk Inks and is up on dimensional tape. I also really like all the button strings I've seen lately so I had to try that myself!


Hope you are having a great day!
Materials:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Enjoy the Ride, Everyday Button Bits; Hero Arts Designer Woodgrain
Paper: Papertrey Ink Kraft, Ripe Avacodo, Aqua Mist, Smokey Shadow, Hawaiian Shores, Bitty Dot Basics Spring Moss, New Leaf
Other: String, PTI Buttons, ColorBox Chalk Ink, Distress Ink, Memento Ink, Stampin Up Top Note Die

Oh, I love the green background - what a wonderful look! It's funny - my 5 year and 2 1/2 year old sons call them 'bug beetles'. Haha!

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 !
