Embossed Bunny

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!  Rachel here with you today to share a quick project I made with fantastic supplies from the 7 Kids College Fund Store!!!!!

I am totally hooked on Mama Elephant stamps and dies!!  They have the cutest images, and really great sentiments!

I decided to bust out the Distress Ink pads and get a little messy!!

I cut out this over-sized tag shape with a die from Mama Elephant,
wet embossed the image and sentiment from Mama Elephant,
and then went nuts with my Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads!!
I usually blend all of the colors in that I want, and then
lightly spray it with some water to get a little more rustic look.

Here's a list of my supplies used-

Peacock Feathers
Dusty Concord
Wild Honey
Victorian Velvet

And there you have it!!  All in all, it was a relatively quick card, with cute results!!

I hope this gives you some crafty inspiration!  

Thanks for stopping by!!

Lawn Fawn - Flirty Frames

Happy Saturday! Jo here with a CAS card using Lawn Fawn - Flirty Frames and Flirty Frames Lawn Cuts. I used white embossing powder  instead of ink for the frame and popped it up with dimensional foam adhesive. Instead of white ink for the stamped image, I used white embossing powder.


I did some doodling with my favorite Uni-ball Signo Broad White Gel Pen! It's my go-to white gel pen, very opaque and draws thick lines. I used the sentiment "love ya" included in the stamp set. For a pop of color, I added a pink rhinestone for the embellishment. 

Come play with us over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog! Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous weekend!

Supplies from 7 Kids College Fund Store:

Preorder update

Right now I am putting my eyeballs on every single order pending in the store. Many of you have noticed that I have shipped partial orders for orders that contain the "problem" preorders: Gorjuss, Trimcraft and Couture Creations. I am shipping what I can right now and over the next few days.

For those who have been patient and kind about the preorder situation, I REALLY appreciate it!!! It means a lot. I just got an email from my rep that they have requested another air delivery shipment of Gorjuss and are waiting to get tracking numbers. They haven't heard back from DoCrafts on it. But, as soon as I get more in, I will continue shipping. Anyone waiting on Dear Apple, Getaway and The Owl should receive a ship notice soon I have most of those in or being delivered to me today.

Again, thank you for your patience!

If you want to cancel your order, please just send me an email. Please do not file a claim with paypal or attack me personally!
 

I am more than happy to cancel your order and issue you a refund if you cannot wait for your order.

May You Be Protected


Happy Friday everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card I made by using the Kite image from the Stamp set by SugarPea Designs called You Blow Me Away. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant's Stamp set called In My Heart and the paper I used is from the   Vintage Bliss 6X6 Paper Pad from Simple Stories.

I hope you'll stop by the challenge blog and take a look at the other fab creations from the DT and while you are at it we would love for you to join the challenge. We can't wait to see what you come up with.
Have a great weekend and Happy card making :)

Some of my favorite stamp sets are from Mama Elephant and with Father's Day right around the corner I decided to ink up this awesome stamps set called BEAR HUGS! It also has a coordinating die available for purchase so you don't have to fussy cut your image out....awesome right?!! 

They are stamped on kraft cardstock Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I did some easy and simple shadowing around the image with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

For my dps I used Echo Park ANYTHING GOES 6x6 Paper Pad. The circles were cut out using By DIEzyne Dies Stitched Circles. The sentiment comes with the set and was cut out using By DIEzyne Dies Stitched Flags Two.

Mama Elephant Arctic Penguins and By DIEzyne Dies

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had an awesome weekend! It's Rosie here today to share my card using these cute and adorable Arctic Penguins from Mama Elephant because I LOVE them! 7 Kids also carries the matching die set to these stamps. They are my fave and require very little coloring! I just used an orange sharpie for the beaks and feet and a red one for the hearts. :)


There seems to be a rise on Clean and Simple cards lately so I decided to give it a go. I just used white cardstock and a couple of dies from By DIEzyne Dies, along with a square punch. The panel behind the penguins is embossed with Crafter's Companion Petite Dots 6x6 Embossing Folder. I used a Copic Multiliner to draw in the dots and lines. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant Everyday Greetings Clear Stamp Set.
