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!

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! www.mamaelephant.com 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.

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 !
