ghouls night out {lawn fawn}

Hi there! On Monday, Lawn Fawn unveiled the new set, Booyah, as part of their Fall/Winter release.

I paired the ghost from Booyah with the pumpkin-in-a-wagon from the also upcoming Happy Harvest. I dressed up the pumpkin with some fun accessories. I love all of the dress-up images found in Booyah! I can't wait to add them onto critters from other sets too!

Once the images were stamped out and colored, I did some night-sky-ink-blending, and added the stars to complete the look of a halloween night.

I hope you like it!

friend indeed {mama elephant}

Hi there! I'm back with Mama Elephant, highlighting their new set, Friend Indeed.

I no-line colored this little fox (from Charmed) awhile back, and he was the perfect fit for this card. This coloring technique makes the image look so soft and almost touchable!

I curved the "friend" sentiment before stamping it down, and nestled the sleepy fox in there.  The friend script was also stamped onto the fox, so that it overlaps.

The "oh hello" sentiment was curved above to cocoon the fox ever more.

I hope you like it, foxy friends!  Click over to the ME blog to see more!

falala in july {new lawn fawn}

You may have caught this card on the Lawn Fawn blog yesterday, but I wanted to show it off here too.

The original party animals have got a new friend in the raccoon (from the upcoming Holiday Party Animal set) and he comes bearing gifts accessories.

I turned them into a caroling quartet, with winter hats (they need scarves, methinks) and sheet music and music notes galore.

The type is courtesy of my favorite Lawn Fawn alpha, Milo's ABCs.

Tandem Extras {mama elephant}

Hi there! This is my second post of the day. If you're looking to see new Lawn Fawn, scroll down or click *here*

We're continuing the Mama Elephant July stamp highlights with Tandem Extras.

The balloon is just about the cutest thing ever.

I love how quickly this card came together. I needed to create a birthday card in a hurry for a friend of Sofia's, and this one fit the bill. Just a little bit of stamping, coloring and die-cutting, and ready to go. The images are so cute, that's all it took!

I hope you like it! There's more to see on the ME blog this morning - click!

happy harvest sneak peek {lawn fawn}

hi there!

Lawn Fawn is doing a full unveiling of their fall/winter collection this week, and I have a few cards to share over the next few days.

I made a card using the new set, Happy Harvest, which features the most adorable scarecrow you've ever seen!

I stamped the image with a light distress ink, and colored him in with copic markers. Once he was colored, I masked him to be able to stamp the husks in the background. I used oval dies to cut out the focal point and made a yellow gingham background to complete the card.

I hope you like it! Visit the Lawn Fawn blog for all of today's sneak peeks!

Tandem Ride {mama elephant stamp highlight} and belated Charmed winner.

Hi there!

The ME design team is kicking off this month's highlights with a closer look at the syrupy-cute set, Tandem Ride.

Most of the DT will show off the bigger critters, so I wanted to show you the tinier images!

These 2 mice are having a picnic in the park:

The picnic basket is exploding with yummy foods. I just love the tiny pretzel image!

And the mice! They are my fave. I used a polaroid die to make the cut-out for my scene, and frame it out with the clouds and rolling hills from *this* die set.

I hope you like it!

Before you go, let's take care of some business that is way overdue! I was so embarrassed when I got a message saying that I never picked a winner for last month's Charmed stamp set. How could I not? I can't wait to get that set into somebody's hands... and the lucky winner is:

Lindsey Bailey! Congratulations! Please email me your address (the link is in my profile) so we can send you some happy mail. 

Now, visit the ME blog this morning for more Tandem Ride inspiration!

mama elephant July stampede!

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop!

The newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!

For my card today, I'm showing off the new and super cute set, Tandem Ride.

I know you've already seen and will see tons of ideas for those adorable critters, but how about something a little different? I nabbed the balloons from Up and Away, and gave my card a bit of a lovey feel... I was thinking of the Disney movie, Up, when I made it.

The sentiment is courtesy of another new set, Blessed. I think this one is a must have. The scripty font is so pretty, and the type font options make it so versatile.

I popped the "we are so" part of the sentiment into the tiny flag from Carnival Toppers for added interest.

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. You have up to 4 chances to qualify to win!
