Little Tangles: Envelope Challenge

The new Neat & Tangled challenge is up over at Little Tangles! Are you ready?

I have been waiting, waiting and waiting for a cool street sign stamp set. Neat and Tangled's On the Corner and Stop and Go are exactly what I was waiting for and more. :) They are super hip, super fun...and sell out super fast! Ha! It took me a few times waiting for a new shipment to come in but I FINALLY got them. Yay. Okay, on to the card...

I stamped the card with On the Corner. The adorable journaling card and patterned paper are from the new Dear Lizzy collection Day Dreamer. I stamped the street sign in grey and then colored it in a warmer grey. When I was coloring I made sure to stay in the lines, rather then cross them so you can still see the fun detail of the stamp.

Next, I made a coordinating envelope with Stop and Go. The "for" sentiment is perfect for the front of an envelope. Now it's ready to be addressed!

I can't wait to see what you create! I'm committing to stop by EVERY PERSONS BLOG WHO ENTERS THE CHALLENGE this week. So I'll see you  over on your blog soon! :)

Great job on your matching card and envelope. I can see why you were excited to get your stamps. The signposts look wonderful and I like the little bits of Washi Tape. Beautiful!

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 !
