Butterfly Sparkle

Hey Everybody! We just made it through a crazy heat wave here so I haven't had a lot of free time to craft this last week. The temps got above 100 so we left our house and stayed with some friends that had AC (thanks Rob & Jenny!).

So today I'm sharing a card I made for Jennifer's Thinking Inking class. I used distress ink for the background design and the sentiment. I needed a lighter shade for the side panels so I inked off once and then got the look I was going for.

This particular class was focused around Stickles. Love the glimmer they add to a project!

I'm totally inspired by Lisa Spangler and this week's Hero Arts challenge theme so I'll be back to share more soon!

[Butterflies & Sunshine Card]
Stamps: Hero Arts Flourish Design Block, Raindrops Background, Anytime Messages
Paper: PTI, Bazzill Swiss Dots Embossed
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink

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.
