Go-to Gal Designer Challenge #1

Happy Monday Everyone! I'm in a sketch sorta groove right now. I adore Betsy Velman's style so when I saw the first ever Go-to Gal Sketch challenge on her blog I was immediately up for the challenge.

This unique sketch kept me up at night...seriously...thinking, thinking, thinking..."what will I do"....and then it came to me... :)

I used Papertrey Ink's Enjoy the Ride and Bird Watching Additions along with the best Hero Art's background stamps Clouds and Designer Woodgrain. I love mixing and matching PTI with Hero Arts. :)

I'll definatley be back to use this sketch again. Thanks Betsy!

Oh goodness....I feel bad that my sketch kept you up! :-) This card is so FUN though, and hopefully worth the loss of a few zzzz's? I love how you turned it sideways and the flying birds are just perfect!! Thanks so much for playing along!

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
