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!

Hello everyone! I’m back with a project for Mama Elephant using the stamp set Magic Moment. This stamp set is perfect for card making, scrapbooking and project life documentation. I decided to use the fun sentiments to dress up my project life spread.

I stamped the “hello” banner on a piece of white cardstock and cut out the banner by hand.

I stitched the banner in place on one of my photos. Hello gorgeous Starbucks taster card!

I used this “love this” stamp set and stamped it on another piece of white cardstock and cut it out by hand. I thought this sentiment was perfect for these beautiful Starbucks cards that I received in the mail!

I also used the banner for the pretty sleeve from Starbucks :) I love that sentiment of finding magic in our daily lives.

Hello!  Welcome back to the last day of Stamp Highlights with Mama Elephant‘s March release!  I have a project to share using the adorable Potted Pretties stamp set.

I had some fun decorating my lavender plant! I coloured the strawberry plant and the butterfly and adhered it to some toothpicks. These make great decorations for plants!

It was so fun colouring these potted pretties and customizing them with little faces!

Hello!  I am back with Mama Elephant for their March release stamp highlight!  Today we are looking at the stamp set Photo Bomb.

For my project, I created a simple layout using the largest group selphie and I paired it with a group photo that was taken 2 years ago. I did a “Throwback Thursday” layout and I thought that group stamp really matches our group!

I cut out 2 frames using Polaroid Fun creative cuts and trimmed the bottom half off.


I stitched the frame and photo in place and finished it off with some journaling!

I’m so happy that Kryssi and Angela designed this stamp set – Ella & Friends – for Mama Elephant!  Ella’s friends are just adorable :)

Using the Starburst creative cover die, I die cut a simple piece of cardstock to layer over my card base. I did some selective stamping and partial die-cutting to make it look like little bunny is holding onto Ella’s nose.

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

Hello everyone! I’m on the Mama Elephant blog today with a layout using Freestyle Florals as my main embellishment along with some subtle patterns created using Zenith Borders.

I first cut out my flowers and coloured them with my copic markers. I wanted to do a blend of two colours so I coloured the inside pink and gradually blended it with yellow.

When I put my layout together, I like to approximate the position of each element and try to tape things down with masking tape to secure them.

I have the flowers tucked behind a frame and I’m planning to stamp the “xoxo” from Surprise Sentiments in one of the labels.

After adhering everything in place and finished up the journaling, I stamped some subtle triangles from Zenith Borders to frame the layout. I stamped them in Versamark for some very subtle pattern.

I applied some sparkles to the petals of the gorgeous florals.
