I’m using the new scroll die in my project today and I love the intricate die cut! I used the die cut and used it as a mask so I could blend the dark navy blue into my cardstock. I blended just half of the cardstock, and then, using the negatives from the die cut, I blended the outline of the scroll for the top part.

Good morning everyone! I’m taking over Mama Elephant‘s blog for today with a project using Rowdy Raccoons stamp set and its coordinating dies.

I created a very simple card base using the Index Card creative cuts to mask off a bubble for my sentiment. I blended pink and yellow together and flicked some water onto the blending to create lighter splotches.

I stamped the sentiment from Tandem Extras in the bubble. I thought the “pick me up” was perfect for the Mr. Raccoon in the little wagon!

I stamped and coloured the little wagon and the cute raccoon holding the flag. I gave the images some highlights by using a white gel pen to trace certain parts for the highlight.

Finished off with 2 little duckies from the stamp set trailing behind the wagon!

And there you go! A simple and very clean card using the masking technique to reduce the amount of layers.

Good morning everyone! Welcome back as we continue the Stamp Highlights for Mama Elephant’s June release! We’re highlighting the last stamp of this release, Hello Friend Wishes. This stamp set has this huge sentiment that’s perfect for a quick hello card!

I created a simple background by blending ink around the four corners to create a colourful border to ground my sentiment.

I finished off with this fun group of Girlfriends and a sentiment from Hello Friend Wishes.

I’m using the newly release Palm Tree die with Get Outta Town stamp and coordinating dies for a fun summer card! I first masked it using the die cut and blended the colours directly onto the the cardbase before adhering the other elements onto the card.

Good morning everyone! Welcome back as we continue the Stamp Highlights for Mama Elephant’s June release! We’re highlighting the Rowdy Raccoons stamp set. I love this fun stamp set that’s full of adorable raccoons doing all sorts of crazy things.

I first masked off “hooray” using the Hooray Script creative cuts. I coloured and blended a pretty blue background and adhered this adorable bicycling raccoon.

I finished off by using the sentiment from Hello Friend Wishes stamp set.

Hello! Welcome back as we continue the Stamp Highlights for Mama Elephant’s June release! We’re highlighting the Girlfriends stamp set. This is the perfect stamp set to use when you just want to send a “hello” or “just because” card to a fellow cardmaker!

I first masked off a frame using Framed Tags Park Avenue and blended a mixture of teal and yellow to the card base.

Mama Elephant - Girlfriends

I used both Girlfriends and Incoming Mail on my card. I’m pretty sure we’re as excited as Kryssi here when we get packages!

Good morning everyone! We’re highlighting the Brushed Florals stamp set. I just love the sentiments in this set and the gorgeous watercolour look on the flowers!

I first stamped my sentiment in black and using the floral stamps, I stamped around the sentiment. After so long, I’m still digging the gold and black combination.

I finished the card off by flicking some black paint onto the card for more black.
