Paper Smooches: Sugar Rush

Summer stamping is so fun! I mixed together a few sets for this fun card. 


I started by stamping and die cutting the cat from Nine Lives and colored him with Copics. The popsicle was stamped and die cut from Sugar Rush. To create the two toned color I masked the edges and the angle with post it tape and then blended in ink. The background was a also blended with a few masks and ink to create the beach scene. The hill was die cut with Stitched Dies and adds more dimension and fun to the card. I finished it with a few embellishments, a sentiment and paper from Crate Paper's Poolside collection.

A very sweet (pun intended!) card! And a wonderfully simple layout that could be used with a variety of sentiments.

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!

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.
