Hello! I’m taking over Mama Elephant‘s blog with a card using Happy Mail and Venice Envelope.

The Venice envelope is just perfect for gift cards so I cut out an envelope from some pattern paper and put together an envelope that matches my Starbucks giftcard from Hokkaido. Using the stitched label die, I die cut a window and adhered a piece of clear plastic to showcase the beautiful gift card.

I created a matching card for the envelope. I first masked off a flag and blended some aqua ink directly onto the cardbase. Using white paint, I painted some polka dots on the card. I love using acrylic paint since it has this nice texture when it is dried.

I stamped out the delivery bus from Happy Mail as well as the letters from Incoming Mail and coloured them with my copics. I stamped “Happy Mail” using the sentiments from Happy Mail onto the delivery bus.

Thanks for coming by!

Welcome back everyone! We’re taking a close look at Calli Letters. This stamp set is AMAZING! I love how Kryssi/Angela included different ways of writing the same letter, and the double “t” and “s” to help make the letter-building easier!

Using the letters one by one, I built my sentiment “congratulations”. The connecting of each letter was very easy and it didn’t take too much measuring to align each letter. The beauty of script letters is that you don’t need to line them up straight!

I finished the card off by decorating it with the leafy border from New Family and flowers from Lunar Extras. This is a perfect card for a new baby or wedding!

Thank you so much for sticking around these 4 days! I’ll be back with another project for Mama Elephant’s May release later!

Hello! Welcome back to our third day of Mama Elephant‘s May stamp highlights! These are super cute critters designed by Luli Bunny for Mama Elephant – Rock and Paws. How cute are these jamming band buddies!!!

I first stamped, cut out and coloured in 3 critters. I chose a pianist, drummer and of course a cute little poodle girl to complete the band!

I used yellow and orange to blend a fun and bright background to ground these band buddies. I flicked some water and white paint onto the card base and drew in some sparkles to finish off the card. The sentiment is from Monster Jam – These has become one of my go-to stamp set for sentiments!

Come back tomorrow for our last stamp highlight!

Hello and welcome back for our second day of the Mama Elephant‘s May stamp highlights! Today, we’ll be looking at Happy Mail, a perfect set to go with Incoming Mail that we looked at yesterday.

The large “Happy Mail” sentiment is just gorgeous and you can totally decorate a large outgoing envelope with this stamp! For my card, I coloured in several of these cute puppies in the envelopes.

I coloured each little puppy a little differently as well as the heart behind them. I stamped the airmail stripes in red and blue to create a border on the card base.

Come back tomorrow for another stamp highlight!

Good morning everyone! I hope everyone had a great time with Mama Elephant‘s May stampede! Today, we’re taking a closer look at Incoming Mail and their coordinating creative cuts.

I first masked off a tilted rectangle on my card base and blended some red and blue ink to create these airmail stripes. I didn’t want to adhere a panel on top of the card base to keep the layering minimal.

SH - Incoming Mail

I stamped the panda from Incoming Mail as well as the boxes and adhered them in the back. Don’t you love getting loads of parcels like this? I finished off the card with a sentiment from Surprise Sentiments. I thought this sentiment was very fitting😉

Hello everyone! This is Pamela here on Mama Elephant‘s blog with a project using Organic Blooms and Framed Tag Columbus Circle creative cuts.

I wanted to make a very simple one layer card for my mother-in-law for the upcoming Mother’s Day and I thought this gorgeous flower would be perfect for her! I started by stamping the large flower on the bottom half of the card base in black.

After stamping the flower, I started by applying some ink onto the flower. I used Delicata gold for the flower petals and Smoke ink for the smaller leaves. When I coloured each one, I left a white outline for the highlight.

I stamped the “Heartfelt Thanks” from the same stamp set and cut out the sentiment. I adhered the sentiment onto the cardbase with foam tape.

Now onto my envelope! I wanted to do a window to showcase the pretty flower cluster so I used the Columbus Circle creative cuts to cut my window panel.

To finish off the card, I flicked some gold and black paint onto the card so the top part wouldn’t be too empty with that large white space.

Here’s the completed project! Now I have a pretty envelope to go with my card!
