 I am so crazy excited to showcase the Mondo Peony Stamp by Julie Ebersole and Mondo Peony Die by Julie Ebersole for you today. The Mondo stamps have been so very popular and this one is sure to please, too.  The big, beautiful size of the stamps and dies will be a hit for mixed media AND stampers alike. I, personally, am in HEAVEN!! ♥

Mondo Peony

The largest flower is a MASSIVE 3½” x approximately 3¼”!! It truly is MONDO. (Julie wasn’t joking around.)

Here is a quick look at the Mondo Peony stamp set:

And a look at the matching Mondo Peony die set:

I am also thrilled to showcase another stamp set for all of you today and this one is called Stay Golden by Julie Ebersole. I utilized the matching die set, too, because they are so awesome.

 I initially had so many ideas for this card it was hard to reign it in. I know that the pineapple trend is HUGE right now, but did YOU know that pineapples are a sign of hospitality and friendship? LINK I think that’s so cool!

 The card that I made is so colorful and fun! I used Distress Crayons, the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Starry Colors for the beautiful shimmery golds (on both cards, actually), and a mix of Distress Inks, and Lawn Fawn Inks. :) The Pineapple crown was created with a light green foil. Fun, huh?

Here is a look at the Stay Golden Stamp set:

New Challenge – Photo Inspiration!

New Month – Photo Inspiration! with the ladies of the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge Blog ! This month’s challenge is sure to inspire you…aaaand we have a fabulous sponsor, as usual. So, check out the details AND my project below.

March 2016 Inspiration Photo

Isn’t this Photo Inspiration just amazing?!!! And just wait until you see what the Design Team has created. JAW DROPPING!!! I kid you not.

Our gracious sponsor this month is the ever so amazing Waffle Flower Crafts. I seriously love them. Amazing company and Nina (head honcho) is just a total gem. She is offering up a VERY generous gift certificate to our monthly winner. How awesome is that?

Waffle Flower Crafts

Now…onto my project! I used the New Challenge – Photo Inspiration and I die cut (from glitter paper) a few oval shapes (no egg dies in this house!), then I created the background using some beautiful acrylic paints, shimmery sprays, and stamps from Waffle Flower Crafts. I used Gel Medium and applied a paper doily to one side. Then I die cut the word “Perfect” several times from black cardstock. I then stamped the word “together” using Versafine and heat emboss it using clear embossing powder.

The “eggs” and the word “together” were popped up using foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®. A little green lawn was also die cut and added to the bottom for a little additional fun.
