Bold & Beautiful by Karolyn Loncon

Hello!!

OH EM GEE!!  I am freaking out at the idea that I get to share a couple of the projects that I created for my Mama Elephant guest designer gig with you today!!  Eeeekkk!!  I must tell you that I had an amazing time creating with this month’s images, so I can’t wait to share my projects with you!  I hope that you’ll see that my love for these images is reflected in my projects.  So let’s get to it, shall we?

Stitches - Mama Elephant July 2013

My first project features Stitches.  How amazing is that sentiment?  I mean those delicate swirls and stitches are just so sweet, aren’t they?  I immediately thought to put the sentiment on an embroidery hoop that I created with my Silhouette Cameo.  Once I stamped the sentiment on the white panel, I embossed it with an aida cloth impression plate, to look like actual cross-stitch fabric.  Those delicious flowers are from the Water Blooms set.  Love!!

Lights Out 2 - Mama Elephant July 2013

My second project features the Lights Out stamp set.  I am absolutely obsessed with light bulb images, so when these yummies showed up in my mailbox, I let out a squeal of delight!!  And the sentiments in this set are beyond perfect for the theme of the set.  I decided to sort of animate my light bulb focal image by adding a grad cap that I created with my Silhouette.  I embossed some sun rays on the main panel for effect and created a little baker’s twine tassel.  How fun would it be to give this to your favorite graduate?

I’ve listed the products that I used on both of these projects below.  I’ll be back in a few days to share two more Mama Elephant projects with you!  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy what I’ve shared today.  Thanks so much for stopping by – it means the world to me that you’ve taken time out of your day to visit!
