Happy World Card Making Day

Hi Everyone! Happy World Card Making Day! Have you checked out the Penny Black blog lately? We've been having a lot of fun over there starting up the Penny Black Circle on Flickr, making friends on Facebook and even having a few contests. So today I'd like to say thank you to all of you who have left comments and joined in on the fun! There are SO many more fun things planned ahead!!! Oh and did I mention there is a *giveaway* on the Penny Black blog today??!?!

I created my thank you card today using Golden Leaves and Thanks Thanks. These are two stamps that I know I'll be reaching for time and time again. I loved using Golden Leaves for the focal point in this card but wouldn't it make a cool background too? And I always always appreciate a good thank you stamp.

Thanks again for stopping by my blog, inspiring me, leaving me some love and joining in on all the Penny Black fun! You are the BEST!

Thank You, Thank You!: Thanks Thanks 2915F, Golden Leaves 3982K

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.
