Clean & Simple Christmas Card

Hi Everyone! I couldn't resist the current Caardvarks challenge. I love clean and simple design so I decided to join in the fun!

I created this card using the Penny Black Filigree Tree. I layered the stamp with two shades of green ink then added brown to the trunk. I created my own text background using a sentiment from the Crystalline set and finished the card with some simple embelishements and a traditional sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be
on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they
plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take
a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard very good things about blogengine.
net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into
it? Any help would be really appreciated!

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 !
