Everything ABC's Blog Hop ~ Letter 'E'

Welcome to the everything ABC's Blog Hop!
For this hop we will be featuring the letter 'E'.
 This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has
chosen as their 'E' element will be featured in their post.

If you came from "Darlys Recker" then you're on the right track!

For the letter 'E' I have chosen to make a Super simple
Elephant Birthday card and...

 an Elegant Baby Album page


To make the card:

 Using a white card base & a 2" strip of lettered paper from the Whimsy fundamentals paper packet & Coral Shimmer Trim.
the Elephant is from the Operation Smile stamp set from Last year called Animal Greetings(retired) on a piece of white card stock matted on a piece of tangerine card stock.

For the Elegant page layout:
  [I cased this one from the seasonal Inspiration Page 46]

Using 2" pieces of Whimsy Paper mounted in a diamond pattern on a piece of white card stock mat on a 12 x 12 Crystal Blue card stock base.  
 No stamping on this one ~ Just Sugar Rush Complements.
I put a matt for a 4 X 4 photo with Crystal blue & white cardstock ~ this is to be a gift for a friend who is having her first grand-daughter in a couple of months!!!


Products Used:
Sugar Rush Complements X7215C

Whimsy Fundamental Paper  (24- 12x12 papers) Z3255
 
Stamp Set :
Animal Greetings (retired)

A great alternative Elephant stamp would be

Warm Grey Z2467
Colorless Blender Z2469

If you came from Caroline of Caroline's Creations you are in the right place!
Here is a Succulent & Floral wreath I created in January ~ as part of a promo held then ~ recreating this with current product & the newest Cricut cartridge is something I will be doing at a later date ~

For the roses I use White Card stock stamped all over in smoothie ink using a word stamp... then inked the edges in the same color using a Sponge dauber...

So in the meantime...
I had a lot of fun creating this card using FLOWERS ~ as I did not have any succulents with me while staying at my Dad's
(he had Open Heart Surgery and a bypass... and is doing FANTASTIC!)




Using the stamp set Hello Lovely (C1670) that also comes as a Thin cut bundle (Z3301) for those that do not enjoy fussy cutting...
I stamped the flower cluster in Bamboo ink (Z2803) & coloring with watercolor Pencils (3505) & using a blender pen to blend the colors.
Colonial white cards & envelope Value Pack (X1410).
Several papers from a couple different collections were used...
Rustic Home Fundamentals (Z3262)
Enchantment Fundamentals (Z3254)
Dreamin' Big Paper Packet (x7218B)
Shimmer Brush in GOLD (Z3316)
Bling is Sugar Rush Dots (Z3310)
