You are wonderful

I made this card on Wednesday and had planned to blog about it on Thursday, but I have been sick the last couple of days.  My inspiration came from Online Card Classes Stretch Your Dies Day 3 - Dry Embossing.  I used Paper Smooches Frame 1 die to dry emboss the pretty stitched frame onto white cardstock. Then I used a combination of Hero Arts and Memento Inks with my Paper Smooches Kudos stamps to create the sentiment and accents inside the dry embossed frame.  To finish the card I used the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Border Dies 1 and some paper from Lawn Fawn, along with a few enamel dots.  Originally I had planned to have a straight border, but the die shifted as I ran it thru my Cuttlebug, but I decided it looked fun and kept it anyways.  I hope you like it!  It was little dark when I took the photo, so sorry about the shadows.

I am entering this into the Paper Smooches Sparks Anything Goes Challenge this week.

OCC Stretch Your Dies Day 2

I didn't really have any flower dies that worked with any of the techniques shown on day 2.  However, I decided to use my cricut explore machine to create a card using the negative die cut technique.  I plan to use the flowers left over from this to create another card with Kristina Werner's suggested idea of cutting out some smaller dies with a larger die shape.

The sentiment is from Paper Smooches scripty sayings and it was white heat embossed on Lawn Fawn's stitched labels.

Mama Elephant Three Amigos

This weekend I finally had some time to play with my new stamp set from Mama Elephant.  I think the Three Amigos set it so cute.  The critters are just so adorable!  I love all the different sentiments that are included, it was hard to decide which to use.  I settled on Happy Birthday and used the tiny present from the Arctic Penguins sets.  The frame die is from Mama Elephant Femme Frames set and the little tags are Lil Inker Designs Anytime Tags.
