Down Hill Bicycle Card

Hi Everyone! I just finished up a few cards for Penny Black and am so excited to share them with you...but you'll just have to wait. ;) Their stamps are so fun and addicting...sort of like a potato chip...you can't stop with just one!

But since I have to keep those cards locked up for a little bit I thought I'd show you a card I made for a friend recently. She requested a card for her brother. She wanted the PTI bike stamp going downhill. With that inspiration, I came up with this.

I recently picked up some cork sheets at Michael's because I was so inspired by Dawn's recent projects. Immediately I found out how fragile they are because I accidentally ripped one. After a huge sigh and a little growl I set the damaged piece aside. I went back a few minutes later to throw the piece away....I had an idea! It kinda looks cool torn! :)

Materials:
Stamps: PTI Everyday Button Bits, Hero Arts Woodgrain
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink, Memories Black Dye Ink
Paper: Paper Trey Ink
Other: Cork, Stitching, PTI Buttons, Prisma Color Pencils

Tres Chic-kie

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!

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.
