I started off by stamping the owl (with a little crown!), the floral wreath and the ribbon from the stamp set. I coloured it with my copics and made some highlights and sparkle using a white gel pen and a clear glitter gel pen.
Tip – I always cut the image out before colouring, just in case I made a mistake in the die-cutting process. This way, I don’t have to waste time on recolouring the image!
After cutting and colouring everything, I started to assemble my card. I stamped by stamping the tree branch onto a piece of cardstock and stitched it in place. I then adhered the owl, wreath, and ribbon to the card and finished it off with a simple sentiment from the same stamp set.
And here you go – a fully assembled card. That owl is super cute!!
Here’s the close up of the card. You can see the places where I used the white gel pen (for the cheeks) and the glitter gel pen to highlight certain places, like the owl’s tummy and the flowers on the wreath.
Thanks for stopping by!

We’re back at our last day of Mama Elephant’s June release Stamp Highlight, but don’t worry, we have more inspiration from the design team starting on Wednesday! We’ll be looking at Chance of Rain, an adorable stamp set that’s perfect for the rainy season… in Hong Kong :)
I wanted to stamp the cute couple together so I had them holding onto an umbrella underneath the rain. Rainbow umbrella? I’ve wanted one for the longest time of my life! It makes the gloomy rainy day so much brighter!
I stamped a sentiment from Sunday Sentiments to ground the cute couple. And of course, I had to finish off the card with some stitching!
Let’s go over to Mama Elephant’s blog for more inspiration!

It’s the second day of Mama Elephant’s June release Stamp Highlight and I’m back with another cute card :) Today, we’re highlighting Sunday Sentiments that’s a perfect companion stamp set with Sunday Stroll. Except… I used it with Charmed instead :D
I stamped the “congratulations” sentiment across the middle of the card and extended it a little bit to the right with a black liner. I then stamped, coloured and cut out an owl couple and the wreath from Charmed. I adhered the owl couple onto the sentiment, to make it look like it’s perching on the line.
The wreath ended up sticking out a little bit (my cards are usually 3.5 x 5) so I trimmed off a part of the wreath.
Head on over to Mama Elephant’s blog to see what the rest of the team created!

Good morning and welcome to the first Stamp Highlight with Mama Elephant’s June release! Today, we’ll be looking at Sunday Stroll and its coordinating creative cuts. If you haven’t noticed yet, this whole week of Stamp Highlights will be cuteness overload. Every single stamp set is so so SO cute!
For my card today, I decided to stamp a baby duckling, Mama duck and Papa duck. I used the fun little arrows from the stamp set and stamped it around the duckling’s head to show the new addition to the family.
I stamped the sentiment from Ellan & Friends. I think that’s the perfect sentiment for a baby congratulations card!
Now it’s time to head on over to the blog to see what the rest of the team created!

I made this adorable card using the newly released Chance of Rain and its coordinating dies. I die cut the clouds and adhered it to the card base before blending a gradient blue background. I just love colouring in this cutie!
And here you go – a rainy day card doesn’t have to be gloomy and grey. Give it a splash of bright colours like yellow, red or blue!

I used the fun Scream for Ice cream along with its coordinating dies for my card today. I love how you can cut individual scoops and make your ice-cream as tall as you want :)
For my card, I did some partial die cutting so that I don’t get the white edges and because I wanted to show the overlapping of the inks.
I then blended Hollyhock, one of the newly released colour to my card base for a plaid look before adhering the ice-cream on top. I love how there’s a sentiment that curves around the ice-cream scoops!
Thank you so much Heidi for having me for this release!
