Mini Cards

Hi Everyone! The last couple days have been kinda crazy around my house. My energy filled 3 year old had a big fall and ended up with 4 stitches in the back of his head on Tuesday night. He is doing well but of coarse I'm still rattled and I've been chasing after him trying to slow him down so he can recover. :)

Today on the Penny Black blog we are featuring mini cards (half of an A2 or 2 3/4" x 4 1/4"). All of the design team members have cards posted so its a fun post! I love being part of such a talented and diverse design team!

On my second mini I created a felt tree inspired by the line of Christmas trees called "Little Trees". The whimsical shape was easy to cut out by hand and I added stitching and pearls for decorations.

I hope you have a great day!

So sorry to hear about your little boy's fall. I don't have children yet, but I can imagine how incredibly scary that must be. I sure hope he recovers soon.

Amazing cards Ashley. Hope your little guy is okay.... thankfully they bounce well at that age!.... mine are 8 and 6.5 and don't know where the time goes.... they have had their fair share of bumps and knocks.... I think the Moms get the biggest fright! Fab job on PB - loved your feature and amazing cards.
Love the felt tree Ashley! So fun!

And hope your little guy is better now! Kids seem to heal amazingly fast :)

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 !
