Mama Elephant-Monster Jam

Hi there! Today I’m joining Mama Elephant to highlight the new Monster Jam stamp set from their April release.Mama Elephant-Monster JamI masked the Hillside Cover creative cut to blend in several distress inks and after flicked a little water using my Mini Mister. I colored the little monsters with Copics and added the balloon from the Framed Tags-Columbus Circle creative cuts. I tied some silver thread to the balloon and adhered it to the monster’s hands with a teeny tiny drop of glossy accents. The sentiments are embossed in Liquid Platinum Gold.Mama Elephant-Monster JamCheck out the Mama Elephant blog to see more project using this cute new Monster Jam stamp set.

SSS-May Card Kit

May-2016-Card-Kit-600Hello there! Just popping in with some fun note cards & treat boxes using the new May Card Kit by Simon Says Stamp.SSS-May Card KitThe Happy Days stamp set included in the kit has the cutest images & sentiments perfect for making thoughtful teacher appreciation note cards.
SSS-May Card KitI can’t even get over the gorgeous plaid pattern papers included in the kit by Lawn Fawn. You know how I feel about plaid, right. It’s up there almost with dark chocolate in my book of things to live for.SSS-May Card KitI used the We R Memory Keepers Punch Board to make these cute little boxes with the plaid papers to put some chocolates in them, and I’ll have my kids send them to school for their teachers. The question it: will the chocolate still be in the box when the teacher gets it?
My kids have so many teachers that need to be appreciated. One example is my Charlie. Poor thing broke his arm yesterday. Gotta love boys and their stunts on the stairs. His sweet teacher sat down with him and helped him finish his assignments as he is struggling to hold a pencil. His teacher deserves a big ol chocolate truffle…and a nap:)SSS-May Card KitSuch a fun, fun kit this month. Check out the Simon Says Stamp blog to see more info about this month’s kit.
