Good morning! This is our last stamp highlight for Mama Elephant‘s June release. I hope you all got some wonderful inspiration from the design team! Today, we’ll be looking at the adorable Dandelion Wishes stamp set and its coordinating die cuts.

This is my favourite stamp sets from this June release, and this card is definitely one of my favourite from the June projects!

I decided to create a multi-layered card with a scene. First, I stamped out the critters and coloured them. Using the partial die cut method, I cut the squirrel, tanuki and rabbit out from a piece of long cardstock, and adhered my coloured critters onto the cardstock.

Next, I did some more partial cutting with the dandelions from the front of the cardbase. I slipped a piece of acetate between the two layers and used foam tape to put the 2 layers together.

For the background, I used the On The Hills creative die cuts and blended some blue ink for the clouds.

To finish off the card, I stamped a sentiment from Bountiful Blessings and the loose dandelions from Dandelion Wishes.

Good morning! Welcome back to another stamp highlights featuring the gorgeous Garden Frame.

I decided to do a very simple card and started off by blending some ink onto my card base. Instead of a solid colour, I went for an ombre pink and splashed some white paint and water onto the background.

I love that they gave us the option of die cutting the inside out and having it as a frame, or leaving the inside as is! For my card, I decided to cut out the inside for a true frame and stamped the sentiment directly onto the card base.

After adhering the frame, there was still room near the flowers, so I decided to colour and cut out a few more flowers and positioned them underneath the original flowers from the frame.

Hello everyone and good morning! I’m back with a card using the newly released Mama Elephant stamp set. Today, we’re taking a closer look at Good Reads. This is the perfect stamp set for creating bookmarks and I just love all the sentiments on there.

For my project, I created a very simple card using the new Dandelion Wishes as well as Good Reads.

I wanted to create a simple scene where Mr Rabbit is coming out from the book to meet his squirrel friend!

Good morning everyone! I’m here with a project using one of the newly released stamp sets from Mama Elephant called Book Worm. I was never a book worm, but I love creating bookmarks so I used this stamp set, coupled with the adorable Bookmark It creative cuts to create something fun!

When I saw the open book, I knew for sure I wanted to create something magical coming out from the book. I masked off an area and blended a mixture of colours (pink, yellow, blue, green…).

SH - Book Worm

I stamped out the images and adhered it to to the bookmark, starting from the smallest to the largest.

On the back, I did the reverse masking with the same colour scheme, and in the middle, I added a sentiment from Good Reads

Hope you like my project and thanks for stopping by!

Hello everyone and welcome back to Mama Elephant’s June stampede! I can’t believe it’s already June… almost done half of 2018!

Today, I’ve got a card to share with you using the newly released Dandelion Wishes. This is my favourite set from this June release so I’m super excited to be able to share my card with you during the Stampede!

SH - Dandelion Wishes

I created a little scene using the little raccoon (tanuki!) and decorated the field with the mushrooms and the dandelions.

I thought the card was a little plain around the middle so I used the tiny dandelion stamp and stamped it around the card to finish it off.

Good morning everyone! I’m over at Mama Elephant‘s blog today and I’ve got a card to share with you using the May release Basic Rectangles creative cuts.

May to September is basically “wedding season” here in Vancouver, so I’ve got a simple wedding card to share with you today!

First, I blended a few colours onto my card base. Since the wedding invitations had pink bits here and there, I decided to incorporate their wedding’s colour scheme into the card. I did some colour blocking using dark pink, light pink and a little bit of gold. I then die cut the window in the middle using Basic Rectangles creative cuts.

I whipped out the perfect stamp set for weddings – Oh Happy Birds stamp set. I stamped out the flower wreaths, the two little birdies and the bell and coloured them in.

On the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment “Oh Happy Day” from the same stamp set. This sentiment would appear in the window from the card front.

I stamped “To The Cutest Couple” onto the front of the card and prepared to adhere all the little bits and pieces onto the card front.

And here you go! The complete wedding card that left our house a few weeks ago! I created a kraft envelope and stamped out the flowers from Pretty Peonies and added some white and gold specks to the envelope.

You can see the sentiment peaking out from inside the card!

Welcome to our last stamp highlight and if you love big calligraphy, this is the stamp set for you! For May, Mama Elephant released another large sentiment stamp set called Oh Happy Day and it totally fills up the card front!

I wanted something happy and blended a rainbow for the card front. I just stamped the sentiment right on top of the card and was about to call it finished… but it felt so bare and was missing something.

So I took the smaller sentiments and stamped a few of them onto some strips of cardstock and adhered it with foam tape diagonally to give it that little pop of white against that background.

Hope you enjoyed the stamp highlights for May!
