{Mama Elephant} Designer Series: In My Heart + Video!

Today, I'm showcasing the In My Heart stamp set and In My Heart Creative Cuts on the Mama Elephant Blog. I used this Just Hatched card as my inspiration. Instead of separating each image in their own recessed negative, I grouped the little girls together.

I added the grass and flowers to balance the white space and frame the girls. The most complicated part of this card was creating the custom sentiment using three of the sentiments. See how this card came together here:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

{Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge} DT Call - You're Invited!

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is having a DESIGN TEAM CALL and you're invited! For details, please CLICK HERE.

School's out and I'm starting to think about my son's 6th birthday party invitations. I was playing around with some new products that I love and I wanted to share them with you. Since my son is having a LEGO Chima-themed party, and he likes to pretend that he is King LaGravis, I thought I'd use the lion from Tim Holtz's Big Top stamp and die set (both versions are linked below).

I added a die cut sentiment from Little B's Block Out die set. I'm head-over-heels in love with this set and I promise that you'll love it, too!! It's a definite must-have. The patterned papers are from Studio Calico's new South of Market 6x6 paper pad and I watercoloured the image with Gansai watercolours (all sets are linked below).

I hope you're enjoying this lovely summer weekend! See you again soon. :)
