Good morning and welcome to our last stamp highlight for Mama Elephant‘s October release. I hope you had a great time hopping around during the stamp highlight and got some inspirations for your Christmas card making!

Today, we’re taking a good look at Peaceful Wishes, another big calligraphy sentiment that’s perfect for Christmas mass production!

I went for an offset sentiment stamping. I first die cut a window using Hexastar and blended some ink underneath before stamping the huge sentiment.

Next, I wanted something going up the border of the hexagon die cut so I stamped those cute snowmen and added some presents for the background.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello everyone! I’m back with another project showcasing Mama Elephant‘s new October release! Today, we’ll be taking a closer look at Whimsical Winter. The images on this stamp set is just so adorable!

I decided to use my favourite Christmas stamp set Puffy Holiday Greetings as my background stamp and stamped it all over the card base in black. Now that black is REALLY black, so I had to soften it up with some vellum.

Next, I die cut the border from New Family and used it to frame my whimsical critters.

Good morning everyone! I hope everyone had a fun time stampeding with us for Mama Elephant‘s October release! What’s your favourite item from this release?

One of my favourite is definitely this crazy So Many Snowmen stamp set. I had so much fun colouring the The Cat’s Meow with all those fun unique kitties and this time, I had a blast colouring my snowmen!

Now this stamp set is huge and since my cards are a tad smaller (3.5in x 5in) so this big stamp set covers a huge chunk of my card base. So that was really all I needed. Just the block of snowmen!

I coloured them with my copics and if your eyes are sensitive enough, you’ll see blue snowmen, purple snowmen and pink snowmen!

And finished off with a simple sentiment from Occasional Labels.

Good morning everyone and happy Sunday! We’re back with more Christmas goodies and today, I have a fun shaker card to share with you featuring the stamp set Wishful Taggins and the Winter Taggins creative cuts!

I did some creative blending on my card base using the distress inks Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass. I love this ink combination because when you blend them together, you can get a light purple thus creating this dreamy effect. I die cut some circles as a mask and blended the ink around the card base while moving those circles around.

I used the snowflake die cut and by following the dotted lines, I was able to cut out the hexagon. I filled the shaker with the snowman from So Many Snowmen and some coarse glitter.

And then I finished the card off with the cute sentiment “Let it Snow” and stamped it 3 times. I was humming that song in my head while creating this card!

Helloooo everyone! I can’t believe it’s October already! I am taking over Mama Elephant‘s blog with a card featuring the new September release! We’ll be taking a good look today at 3 release sets – Me and My Yeti, Sentiments from a Yeti and Snow Furries creative cuts.

I first stamped out the adorable Yeti and the banner. I coloured those in with my copics and adhered the banner to the Yeti so it looks like he’s holding onto the banner.

Next, I started on my background. Seeing those snow furries, I really wanted to create a simple die cut panel against the white card base. I then stamped a few of the smaller snowflakes from Holly’s Snowflakes onto the cardbase.

Finished with a dash of sequins and the card is done!

A very simple and easy to mass produce card!

Good morning everyone! I’ve got another card to share with you all using Mama Elephant‘s big September release! This card looks at the super cute A Cookie Christmas and its coordinating creative cuts.

I used the star die from Framed Tags Hexastar for the background in which I blended my favourite non-traditional Christmas colours for the background.

How cute are those mini gingerbread men! I paired Miss Reindeer with Miss Bunny together, along with 3 cute gingerbread cookie in the middle!
