No Peeking David

I've been excited to share this card for a couple of days. I created this card for my brother's birthday and needed to give it a few days head start in the mail. :)

My brother moved away to NYC several years back (sniff, sniff) so I was excited to incorporate the city stamp in to the scene. The critter was colored using Distress inks (one of my new favorite techniques) and the city scape was shaded using Copics. When ever I make a card for a guy, color and texture are always very important. The torn cork, fall colors and loose string on the button added just the touch I needed.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies: Penny Black Stamps (Cityscape, Party Time, Happy Birthday), PTI Paper and Buttons, Glossy Accents, Cork, Copics, Distress Ink, Memento Ink, String

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! 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
