Extended Banner Tutorial

Hi Everyone! Today I thought it would be fun to show you how I like to make extended banners using Lawn Fawn stamps. I'll get right to it and show you my completed card. Then we'll look at the simple steps so you can make your own. ;)
The concept for this card started with a pile of sticky notes. Once I made sure I had a concept that worked and a sentiment that fit I started stamping on cardstock. :) So here it is, super simple...

First I stamped the banner I selected from Bannerific 3 times.

Then I trimmed each banner to be the start, middle and end to my extended banner. Next I stamped the sentiment from Lucky Stars, added a little interest to the middle using Interlocking Backdrops and glued the banner together! What do you think? You could also mask and make it one big piece but I decided to go the easy route today. :)

Hope you are inspired to give it a try! Thanks for stopping by!

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 !
