We are at our last day of Mama Elephant’s May release Stamp Highlights using a new set of alphabet – Bella Letters. I love using these alphabets to create my own sentiments or message inside and out :)

I combined a few stamp sets together in this card, using Potted Pretties to celebrate a new addition to this family I know. I stamped a few itty bitty bugs from Small Talk and some speech bubbles. Looks like they’re excited about the new addition too!

Mama Elephant - Bella Letters

I created my own sentiment underneath using Bella Letters and a line of stars from Shooting Star. I stitched my cardstock directly onto the cardbase along with some fun photo corners from Studio Calico’s Park Ave. scrapbook kit.

Hello everyone! I’m back with another Stamp Highlight project with Mama Elephant’s May release! We will be sharing projects using the new Small Talk stamp set. Don’t like colouring? These itty bitty bugs are perfect for you then!

I stamped a fun little scene using Small Talk and Woodland Gifts. I did some simple colouring for the scene but I didn’t colour the bitty bugs too much.

I just love these small talk bubbles and they are perfect for these bugs and all the other critters from Mama Elephant.

Good morning! Welcome to the first day of the Stamp Highlights with Mama Elephant’s May release! Today, we are taking a look at the adorable Playful Pups stamp set along with its coordinating dies.

I stamped the puppy and gave him a little bowl on a piece of cardstock and had it partially cut out so I could give it a frame. I stamped one of the sentiments from the same stamp set. Is it too early for a Valentine’s day card?

Mama Elephant - Playful Puppies

I backed the image with a heart filled pattern paper from Studio Calico’s Cirque card kit and slipped the medium sized heart frame underneath the little pup.

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop!  Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!

I stamped the balloons from Woodland Gifts and had it tied to the bone from Playful Pups. It makes a great gift for the little puppy doesn’t it? I finished the card off by adhering a piece of grass to ground the little pup.

Hello, and welcome to the Spring 2015 Essentials by Ellen Release Hop! I’ll be showcasing some of the new stamp sets and dies In my post today!

And, yay!!! I also get to give this new stamp set, called Mondo Magnolia to a lucky someone! Please leave a comment to enter my giveaway!

I use this gorgeous stamp set for a Mother’s day card.  I first did some watercolouring using a water brush and Loew-Cornell watercolour cakes to create some simple pink paint strokes.

EE - Mondo Magnolia Close Up

I then stamped the large Magnolia using Versafine Onyx onto the watercolouring and did some stitching around the card base for some simple details. I finished off by stamping a sentiment from Amazing Women and popped it up with some foam tape.

Here’s my finished card!

EE - Mondo Magnolia

I have another project using the Be-you-tiful Die and Wild Garden Dies to create an elegant card.

Ellen Hutson - Be-you-tiful Die

I die cut the flowers with some vellum and stitched it on a piece of cardstock and the cardbase. I then die cut the sentiment in black and adhered it onto the card with some foam tape. A simple card with no stamping :)

Today I am using the Big Vases dies and this set consists of 3 standalone dies that you could use with the Twiggy Florets stamp set. I used 2 of the dies and cut out the vases on a piece of white cardstock. I stamped a long flower on piece of scrap cardstock and using the tallest vase die, I cut out the vase partially so that I could cut out the flower separately.

It’s amazing what can be done with just a stamp, dies, copics and a black inkpad!

Thanks for stopping by!
