Mommy-Baby Blog Hop

Hi there, blog friends! The girls over at Stamplorations are having a Mommy-Baby Blog Hop in honor of my sweet friend, Deepti and I am thrilled to take part in the hop!
Deepti and her hubby Vikas announced the arrival of their son Siddharth on Jan. 29th, and oh what a cutie-pie he is! So, I'm sharing my card, and off it goes in the mail ~

I stamped the gingham pattern onto the Hero Arts die cut elephant, and added an aqua pearl for his eye. The balloon is from Papertrey Ink, and the sentiment is Penny Black. The stitched/scalloped frame is my new fave from Mama Elephant ~

Thanks so much for stopping by,

Addicted to CAS Challenge #81

Hi everyone ~ It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS, and our Hostess, Bhavana, has chosen the Code Word 'Bloom'! Our sponsor is Eureka Stamps, and the winner will receive three digi stamps from their store. Also, we have a lovely and super talented Guest Designer, Elena Voronina, who will be joining us this week!

Here is my first card: 

I used one of my new Winnie & Walter sets (In Bloom: Addie's Garden) for the flower, and a sentiment from SSS Watercolor Flowers stamp set. The flowers and leaves were colored with Copic markers, and I added just a few PTI Moonstones for a little sparkle. 


Sometimes I feel badly that I don't 'play with' my favorite stamp sets as much as I should, so I created a 2nd card for this challenge:

For this card, I embossed the Labels 8 die into the corner, and stamped the flowers with white pigment ink. The white panel along the side is Linen, so it looks pretty IRL...lastly, I added a sentiment and a few sparkly sequins, and this card was completed :) 

Here is a close-up of the embossed details:


Kathy Racoosin is running another 30 Day Coloring Challenge, so I would like to also enter my first card there :)  

And, one of my new favorite companies is holding a Belated 2nd Birthday Bash...Winnie & Walter, so I am entering my first card into the Floral Challenge with Lydia, as well!

I hope you'll take a few minutes to check out the beautiful cards my team mates have created for the challenge, and play along with us this week at ATCAS ~ Have a great weekend,

Tag You’re It Challenge #39

Hi there, blog friends ~
A quick post tonight to share a tag I created for the current Tag You’re It Challenge #39  

I love how Erin added the camper to the bottom of her card, and thought it would be fun use a large Paper Smooches tag and Scooter! The background was created with a water color wash, the road is a Mama Elephant die, and I colored the scooter with Copic markers...a few clouds and a fun sentiment, and that's it! 

I just realized that Kathy is running another 30 Day Coloring Challenge, so I would like to also enter my tag there :)  

Thank you so much for stopping by ~ Have a great week,
