Big BIG News!

Hi Everyone! I have some pretty exciting news to share with you tonight! I received a phone call this afternoon and was invited to be a part of the Penny Black design team! There stamps are SO cute and fun to play with. I can't tell you how excited I am about this opportunity!!!

Here is my first card design for them. I also created a scrapbook page (can you believe it) that I will share in the next couple of days.

When I saw THIS owl he had to be mine! I love him! It felt natural to me to make him hold something so I found this little cupcake to put in his hand. I also have to point out THIS stamp set. It is so versatile! I used it to create the background grid design, the diamonds on the green paper AND for the sentiment. The final detail was adding the recipient's name (my brother Adam) with white ink on the blue paper. I did this using the Robust Upper Case alphabet set.


Have a great night!

Materials:
Stamps: Penny Black Robust Upper Case, Salutations, Nocturne, Cup-Cake
Paper: Papertrey Ink Kraft, Dark Chocolate, Simply Chartreuse, Aqua Mist, Stampers Select White
Ink: VersaMark, PTI Fresh Snow, Memories Black Dye Ink, Memento Tuxedo Black

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 !
