Butterfly Smiles

Hey Everyone! I'm packing and getting ready for vacation but I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to make a card for this week's Hero Arts Sketch Challenge! This card is based on Sketch #3. I just got a Silhouette SD for my birthday a few days ago. I almost fell over when I opened the box from my husband. It was the BEST surprise EVER!

Stamps: Hero Arts Heart Winged Butterfly, Happy Hello, Cloud Design Block
Paper: Core'dinations, PTI
Ink: Memoried Black Dye
Other: Hero Arts clear buttons, Silhouette Die Cut

We leave in just a few hours. Eeek! There are a lot of fun things happening over at Caardvards in the next couple of weeks! I have some autoposts set up so be sure to check in!

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 !

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! 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.
