Just For Fun: Paint & More

Hi Everyone! Have you seen the new crafts section at Target? It's awesome. I recently picked up some paint (check out my Instagram account @ashmarcu) and wanted to incorporate it in to a card. 


I started by die cutting a card using Mama Elephants Tags a Lot die, then swirled some paint in a big circle. Next I layered lots of die cuts (mostly from Amy Tan's new Rise & Shine collection). Next I layered in some washi tape and added the typewriter stamped with a sentiment from My Favorite Things You Gnome Me.


Next, I created a Washi Bow using Bella Blvd tape and a Tim Holtz paperclip. It need a little bit more so I added some "paint splatters" with my Copics. Yep, I just dotted my markers here and there to create the look of splatters. Easy and not messy. ;)


Thanks for stopping by today! It's time for more creating....

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
