Hello and good morning everyone! I’m back with a *slightly* early Mother’s Day card using the gorgeous floral stamp Pretty Lovely from the latest Mama Elephant‘s January release.

First, I used some masking tape and masked off some geometric shapes on my card stock. I wanted to go for a Spring colour theme so I used a combination of pink, orange, dark yellow, yellow and red.

Next, I used the curly bracket die cut from Framed Tags – Chelsea to die cut a window in the middle. This is where I’m going to slip my flower in later.

I stamped my flower in black on some white cardstock and left it as is. Since the card panel is busy with colours and shapes, I wanted to leave the flower simple in black and white. I slipped the flower in the window and adhered a sentiment from Occasional Labels.

And there you go! Here’s my finished card using the January release stamp sets. I love the splash of colour around a simple black and white focal point!

Here’s a close up of the card. The embossed stitching from the Framed Tags – Chelsea die cut adds a nice flair to the card!

Good morning everyone! I’m back with another card for Mama Elephant‘s January release, and today, we’re taking a closer look at Pretty Lovely.

Is it too early for Mother’s Day? Maybe it’s this “mommy brain” that’s making me make all these Mother’s Day cards super early! I started by masking off a heart die cut using FBA – Love creative cuts. That’s where I’m going to stamp my flower later.

I blended some stripes with pink and dark pink (and of course 1 gold stripe for *bling bling*) and stamped the flower and sentiment directly onto the card base. Voila! A simple one-layer card that’s mail friendly!

Good morning everyone! I’m back with a card featuring the super cute stamp set Fly With Me that’s newly released from Mama Elephant for January 2018.

I first die cut a hole with Framed Tags Hexastar and used the newly released Cloud Nine creative cuts to blend my sky.

I stamped the sentiment from Scripty Bday onto the clouds with little Miss Elephant flying away with the balloon on the side.

Hello everyone and happy Friday! Welcome back to another stamp highlight and today, we’re taking a look at Scripty Bday from Mama Elephant‘s January release. These sentiments are just perfect for any kind of card!

I made one of my favourite cards for this release using the newly released Cloud Nine creative cuts‘ raindrops. I love the stitching the die creates and I used that as a guide for my real stitching.

SH - Scripty Bday

I die cut my raindrops in pink, aqua, blue and vellum and stitched it onto a card panel, which is then adhered with foam tape. I think this would be the perfect birthday card for anyone with a birthday during the rainy season… and in Vancouver, that lasts almost 6 months!

Good morning! We’re kicking off the Mama Elephant January release with the adorable The Dog’s Woof!

SH - The Dog's Woof

I used by blenders to create a colour block background with shades of orange and yellow. I used gold for one of the blocks to kick things up a notch with the glitter.

I coloured the doggies with copics, with 1 coloured dog, and the rest are coloured in shades of grey.

Happy 2018!!! I’m so glad to be back in 2018 with Mama Elephant again! I took a small little break to take care of my newly adopted dog, so imagine how happy I was when I saw this newly released set – The Dog’s Woof!

Stampede - The Dog's Woof

I wanted to create a one-layer card, so I pulled out my pencil crayons and got creative with the doggies.
