Happy World Card Making Day

Hi Everyone! Happy World Card Making Day! Have you checked out the Penny Black blog lately? We've been having a lot of fun over there starting up the Penny Black Circle on Flickr, making friends on Facebook and even having a few contests. So today I'd like to say thank you to all of you who have left comments and joined in on the fun! There are SO many more fun things planned ahead!!! Oh and did I mention there is a *giveaway* on the Penny Black blog today??!?!

I created my thank you card today using Golden Leaves and Thanks Thanks. These are two stamps that I know I'll be reaching for time and time again. I loved using Golden Leaves for the focal point in this card but wouldn't it make a cool background too? And I always always appreciate a good thank you stamp.

Thanks again for stopping by my blog, inspiring me, leaving me some love and joining in on all the Penny Black fun! You are the BEST!

Thank You, Thank You!: Thanks Thanks 2915F, Golden Leaves 3982K

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 !
