So Sew Special

Hi Everyone! I have another card to share using the Hero Arts Sew Crafty digi kit. This time I used spools of thread from the kit plus a sketch that Shari has up on the Hero Arts blog this week.

I wrapped each of the spools with a bright color of embroidery floss then stitched coordinated Xs along the inner border. The white center piece was cut out of some extra fabric I had laying around. I taped it on card stock before cutting it out so that it cut nice and straight.

This card is off in the mail to my Grandma who loves sewing and is SO special. :) Hope you are having a great day!


Stamps: Hero Arts Sew Crafty Digi Kit, All Occasion Messages
Paper: Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist, Kraft, Spring Moss
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, PTI Tea Dye Duo
Other: Embroidery Floss, Pinking Shears, Rectangle Scallop Nestabilities

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.
