Paper Smoochin'

Hi Everyone! After a loooong blogging break I am back to share a few cards with some of my favorite Paper Smooches stamps. Sunny weather is finally here so I've been inspired to make some bright and fun cards. :)

On the first one I started with the adorable bee image in Giddy Bugs. I added him to a cheerful sky (patterened paper is My Mind's Eye from the 6x6 Lime Twist collection) and then thought a colorful banner (from Hang Ups) would brighten this up a bit.

On the second card I was very inspired by Kryssi's card here. After I saw here card is knew I wanted to make a tree with my Hang Ups set too! I added leaves and flowers to my tree and colored them with Copics. I hung the tree house image in Hang Ups with some twine and added grass to the bottom using the pine needle images (also in Hang Ups). I finished the card with a sentiment from Sentiment Sampler and a little bit of glitter on the flowers. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Love your cards, Ashley!! I can't see which card you were inspired by, but I'm assuming it was the CPS sketch! Your take is fabulous and I actually created my tree with those leaves and the popcorn flower like you did initially but I mine didn't come out as cute as yours did, so I went with the fir. Btw, I hope you are submitting your cards to the monthly guest designer hunt! :)

So glad you're back! I checked in here nearly every day to see if you'd posted anything new. I love your work! These two cards are so adorable. I love that you're using Paper Smooches. I don't have any of my own yet, but I think their images are incredibly cute and I love to be inspired by other using what I love. Great job on these. Don't stay away long!

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.

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 !
