Paper Piecing fun!

Hello and Happy Friday!  I'm here today to share a cute and happy little card that I've made based on the latest Mama Elephant and Me Challenge: Paper Piecing + Thanks...

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Mama Elephant (Honey Bunny, Say What, Sketchy Letters, Good Times)
Ink: Memento
Patterned Paper: Heidi Swapp

I had fun with this challenge, and used a few (hehehe) Mama E Stamp Sets and got busy cutting!  I Stamped my balloons first, then stamped the letters inside of them before cutting them out.  My sun was created out of a balloon image and the rays are really the letter "l" from the Sketchy Letters Set.  I added some sequin clouds just for pure cuteness sake.

I hope this card has brought a little smile your way today!
Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Crafting!

Hi!  Today I have this super sweet card up on The Alley Way Stamps Blog, and I just had so much fun playing around with my paper and stamps!

Supplies Used:
Stamps: The Alley Way Stamps (Prehistoric and Livin Fossils)
Ink: Memento
Patterned Paper: Teressa Collins and DCWV
Die: Avery Elle
Sequins: Pretty Pink Posh
Various Copics
Foam Adhesive

I started this card by adhering the patterned paper and glitter cardstock to the cardbase.  I then stamped the dino several times on different papers, fussy cut and adhered together.  I also used my copics for his little spikes.  Finally I stamped and added the tag, adhered the dino, and added the sequins!
