Ginger Joy Tag

Hi Everyone! I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving! This treat bag was featured on the Penny Black blog yesterday.


I absolutely adore the Ginger Joy stamp by Penny Black. Its so simple, so cute, so easy to customize, embellish and use again and again. Plus its a cling stamp so its easy to store (bonus!).

First I stamped the gingerbread man on kraft cardstock. I added a few brown shades of distress ink to his body for a "fresh out of the oven" look. The hands and feet were pieced with fabric. I love the extra interest and texture that fabric adds. You will see me use it again. ;) The berries are clear gems colored with permanent marker. Finally, I mounted him on a simple tag and added a few simple borders and embellishments.


Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

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!

Mama Elephant March Stampede!

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop! 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. You have up to 4 chances to qualify to
