Stamping Royalty and a Card

Hi Everyone! I'm back again with another Paper Smooches card and a little announcement (you may have already heard)!

I am shocked, thrilled and a little excited (okay A LOT excited) to have received an honor I only have dreamed about...


That's right! I was selected as one of the 2012 Stamping Royalty winners! Eeeek! Too cool really. Since I only submitted 3 cards (2 of which were previous rejects) I wasn't expecting anything AT ALL. I did LOVE the cards I sent in but figured they weren't what Paper Crafts was looking for since they were rejected the first time around. But I'll let you in on a little something. Maybe this will keep you going if you've had publishing woes. One of my previously rejected cards is a STAMPING ROYALTY WINNER! :)

Okay, now on to today's card... 


This card was inspired by the Paper Sparks inspiration photo HERE. I knew I wanted sun rays coming from behind the coffee cup so I went searching through my Paper Smooches sets and found the perfect solution in the exclamation mark in the He Said She Said set. I also used Hot Concoctions, Sentiment Sampler and Geo-Graphic.


Thanks for stopping by today and sharing in my excitement!

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
