Super tickled to be joining my friend, Laurel, in taking part in her Inspired By challenge. This week’s challenge is to make something inspired by this picture.
So cute, right?! (I’m also counting my take on it for today’s Valentine challenge with Ashley!)
So meet today’s card!
I just had a whole lotta fun here, creating a cute little “love” mail scene.
I think the cloudy background makes it. Made that bad boy with a cloud stencil from My Favorite Things. If you are a stamped scene builder like I am, stop what you are doing. Get the stencil. You’ll love it. I can assure it. (PS. No affiliate links or sponsorship to say that. I’m truly just a fan!)
All the images and words on the card came from a couple different stamp sets: Gleeful Gardens and (retired) You’ve Got Mail from Lawn Fawn and Three Amigos from Mama Elephant.
Love it when you can mix different stamp sets together and end up with something that pleases you.
Added a little extra pop to the card by adding a few dots with some white, black and pink Nuvo Crystal Drops. I love those things.
Alright! That’s all I have. Be sure to check out the other takes on the Inspired By image…. and be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her latest take on our Valentine challenge.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by!
Another day. Another card to share.
Made this guy while I still had supplies out from my last challenge with Ashley.
You just can’t go wrong with dogs! The cute dogs, dog stuff and dog words are from a dog stamp and die set by Mama Elephant and produced by Hampton Art. The set is based on Mama Elephant’s Playful Pups set. (It’s the cutest!)
I was feeling adventurous when I colored in the dogs so I gave one of the dogs some spots. They might be a little too perfect to be realistic but, you know what they say, anything is possible in card land. Wink, wink!
The friend word is from a stamp set from Paper Smooches, while the hearts were cut with some dies from Lawn Fawn.
All the patterned papers are just random pieces from my box of scraps.
Alright! That’s it for me today. I’ll be back again later, friends. Thanks, as always, for stopping by.
My pal, Ashley, and I are at it again, challenging each other to make cards.
Both of us recently picked up the cute dog stamp and die set by Mama Elephant and produced by Hampton Art. The set is based on Mama Elephant’s Playful Pups set. (Love it!) Anyway, we challenged each other to make something with the set!
So here’s what I came up with.
The images and all the words (other than friend) are from the set. I just love that little dog. The friend word is from a sentiment stamp set from Paper Smooches. I just like the combination the phrase and word together. Plus, I’m going to send this card to a friend. 🙂
I also added a few hearts, which were cut with some hearts dies from Lawn Fawn. I just love adding hearts (and stars) to my little stamped scenes. I think they just make things cuter.
I also added a few dots to my card. I made them with white and black Nuvo Crystal Drops. Love those things.
Alright! That’s what I have.
Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her take on the challenge. See you again soon!
Back again with another take on the 2017 Christmas Card Challenge with my buddy, Ashley!
I wanted to do something different today…. and well, yeah. 😉
Unicorns & Christmas? Yep. Different. And this was the result.
Always fun to push yourself to do something different when making cards. Let’s be real here for a minute: Do I love these cards? I like them. I don’t love them but it was fun to do something different. I’ve not seen a Christmas unicorn before so I decided to give it a go. I’m glad I did and that’s why I am sharing. 🙂
The unicorn and rainbow are from the Mama Elephant Unicorn stamp and die set that Hampton Art produced and is available at Jo-Ann Stores. Not sure where else, but that’s where I found it. (It’s based on Mama Elephant’s fabulous Unicorns & Rainbows stamp set.) The words are a mash up of sentiments from My Favorite Things’ Toasty Greetings and Magical Unicorns sets. I did some masking to basically make the custom sentiment. The star stamp is also from MFT.
I once again created a background for my scene with the help of MFT’s Cloud stencil. Gosh, how fun that thing is!
Not much more to say today so I’ll be taking off.
Be back again tomorrow. In the meantime, be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see her latest take on this year’s challenge.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by! It’s ALWAYS a treat!
Another day. Another card based on this year’s Christmas Card Challenge with my friend, Ashley!
Meet today’s card.
I once again had fun playing with some Mama Elephant stamps. The reindeer is from their Reindeer Games stamp set. It’s just adorable.
To make the lead reindeer different (basically, like Rudolph and all), I colored his nose in with red ink and added a teeny tiny touch of glitter glue on top. I stung them together with the help of some good old twine.
The words and the stamped stars are from Holly Jolly by Julie Ebersole for Ellen Hutson. Such a fun stamp set.
Created the background for this card once again with the help of the Cloud stencil from My Favorite Things. Such a great tool to use for creating cute and quick backgrounds. Take the stencil. Sponge on a little ink. Move the stencil. Sponge a little more ink. Repeat these steps over and over until you’ve added color to an entire panel of cardstock.
Super fun… and super cool looking.
Alright! That’s it for today. Be sure to swing by Ashley’s blog to see what she’s cooked up for today.
Kicking off this year’s Christmas Card Challenge with my friend, Ashley! It’s our thing around Christmas to challenge each other to make Christmas cards. And we are sharing the results of this year’s challenge this week.
So meet today’s card!
Created the little scene here with a couple Mama Elephant stamp sets – Alpine Carolers and their Reindeer stamp and die set that was produced by Hampton Art (but is somewhat similar to their amazing Reindeer Games set).
Had a great little time, coloring in the reindeer and tree. Might… just might have… killed a Copic marker in the process. Might have. 😉
Created the wintery background with the help of the Cloud Stencil from My Favorite Things and the Stitched Snow Drifts Die-namics (also from MFT). They are fun to use on their own… and even more fun to use together!
I always like adding a little pop to my cards so I added a few drops to background the some glitter glue and some Nuvo Crystal Drops. The little drops always add a little something special, I think.
Alright! That’s all I have today. Be back tomorrow with another card based on the challenge. Thanks for tuning in, and don’t forget to stop by Ashley’s blog.
