We’re at our last day of Mama Elephant’s stamp highlights with October’s promo stamp set and die – Mini Messages and its coordinating dies. This set is the best thing to dress up and embellish your Christmas gifts and cards!
I die cut a few of the mini tags from white cardstock as well as some festive pattern paper. I backed the white tags with pattern paper and sewed them onto the cardstock. I decorated the tags with Mini Messages with the penguin and holly from Christmas Scene.
I finished the card off with a simple sentiment from Jingle Greetings.
Another card to my Christmas pile for mailing!

I wanted to make a very simple card so I can slip the card into the kitchen island in the morning for my husband :) I first stamped the pears onto the cardstock, and did some careful masking so I could colour it using a blender.
I gave these cuties some eyes, a little bit of blush and a sentiment to finish the card off. After I finished the card, this song was stuck in my head until I went to sleep!
I think I’ll make myself a pile of these simple cards to surprise him in the morning!

Hello everyone! I’m sharing a card I made for Mama Elephant’s November release – Lunar Extras. This is the perfect set for me to make Chinese New Year cards for my relatives in Hong Kong. And the best part? There’s a chinese sentiment in there for my grandma!
And so I decided to make a card to sent to my grandma when next year’s CNY comes! I made a little shaker card along with the gorgeous cherry blossom image. I first cut a circle using Pizzaz Pieces released in October. I carefully tucked the cherry blossoms under and over the cardstock and layered another cherry blossom underneath.
Cherry blossoms and glitter shaker cards are just made for each other! I carefully cut out the Chinese sentiment (yes yes… I know!) so I could stamp it from right to left.
I can’t wait to mail this out to surprise my grandma!

Good morning everyone! I’m here with a card using the Mama Elephant’s newly released rLunar Animals. You can use this stamp set all year round with the adorable animals in this set.
I decided to make an anniversary card for myself to give out next year (I’m only 9 months early ;)) I’m using the scallop circle die from Treat Toppers to first cut an opening where I can put Mr. & Mrs. Dragon inside. I blended some light blue distress ink onto the card base and stamped a sentiment from I Like You.
I gave a little cherry blossom from Lunar Extras to Mrs. Dragon and a little heart in the middle to finish the card off.
So what’s with 2 dragons? We were both born in the year of the dragon :)

Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!
I used the Lucky Envelope die to cut my lucky envelope out. Using post-its and masking tape, I blended some triangles onto the white envelope using pink, red and gold ink. I adhered the cherry blossom, lucky cat and the cherry blossom branch from Lunar Extras to decorate the front of the envelope.
I’m ready to give out some red pockets to a few friends this Chinese New Year!

Hello everyone! I’m over at The Classroom @ EH with a card using Essentials by Ellen as well as Mama Elephant. I’ll be using Ellen Hutson’s Cozy Christmas, Home & Hearth dies and Mama Elephant’s Christmas Spirit.
Here is my EH x ME project! I love this adorable elf and I wanted to use it again (even after Mama Elephant’s big release!). I paired it up with the wreath in Cozy Christmas, but before that, I know I wanted to do everything on a flag using the die from Pizzaz Pieces.
I masked off some stars using the Home & Hearth dies and blended in blue and teal distress inks onto the die cut. I flicked some water onto the die cut for a starry effect. Using a white and glitter gel pen, I added some more “stars” before adhering the little elf girl.
After, I adhered the flag onto my card base, I stamped a simple sentiment from Cozy Christmas (adorable font!) to wrap up my card.

Good morning everyone! I’m over at the Mama Elephant’s blog for today with a card using the new October release – Christmas Scene and its coordinating creative cuts, Christmas Spirit and its coordindating creative cuts as well as Jingle Greetings.
Instead of colouring the images with copics, I decided to mask off each individual part and blend it using my blender and some ink. Here is the finished colouring/blending of the tree.
After I have finished blending each element, I die cut with out with its coordinating dies. I am so glad there are dies for pretty much everything now!
Now that my elements are coloured and cut out, I started assembling my card onto my card base. The background is done by blending yellow and blue onto a masked circle. The stars are blended using a DIY mask with the Lots of Stars creative cut. The little speech bubble is from Tandem Extras and the heart is from Three Amigos.
And here is the finished card! Another one of my favourite cards for this release! This special card is going to a special someone for our first Christmas together <3
Here is a close up of the card. I added some shine using a glitter pen to the presents as well as some highlights to the little elf using a white gel pen.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
