Today, I’m using the super adorable Agenda Boy and Agenda Girl in my card, paired up with Sunday Sentiments. I just love how these little guys have similar themes yet different poses, like this little boy and girl both holding onto balloons!

I decided to do a little bit of stripes masking and blending for the sky so it’s not a solid gradient. I added in some little stars from Pix’s Happy Holidays to go along with the cute star balloon that they’re holding onto.

Since this is a special release, we’ve got to bring in some super special people to join our Design Team, right? I can’t think of a more stellar line-up than this right here!

Hello! Today, I’m on the Mama Elephant blog today with a little card featuring Tiny Ninjas. This little ninja was just calling out to be paired with a piece of string for rope, so I made it into a fun swinging ninja!

I first masked off an area to blend my background in. I wanted the ninja to be swinging around against the sky so the ninja would pop out against the blue background. I masked off some clouds using the die cut from Sunday Stroll.

I framed the card using the scallop die cut from All Prettied Up and adjusted the rope with the ninja to get it swinging the right direction.

I finished off the card with a simple “Thank You” sentiment from the same Tiny Ninjas stamp set.

If you look closely, you’ll see some water and white paint splatters against the background!

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.

I’m using one of the newly released die for June called Potted Plant and it’s a fun, cute and very delicate die cut. I carefully stacked 3 of them together since they are hard to use foam tape to adhere it on the card. I did a blend of pink, yellow and green ink on the cardbase to make the white die cut stand out even more.

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.

Mama Elephant - Organic Blooms - 1

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.

Mama Elephant - Organic Blooms - 3

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.

Mama Elephant - Organic Blooms - 4

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!

Hello everyone! We’ve got some cute stamps for this release, but if you’re not into cutesy stamps, Mama Elephant is also releasing this gorgeous and elegant flower cluster – Organic Blooms.

I first stamped the flower cluster in the top left corner of the card base. I cut out a few masks and blended a bunch of different reds and pinks (unfortunately, it doesn’t show too much in photos…) as well as different greens for the leaves.

After blending all the colours onto the card, I stamped one of the sentiment in black and popped it up with foam tape. I really love the simplicity of this thank-you card! I also put some finishing touches with little dots of glossy accents, white and glitter ink onto the flower cluster.

Mama Elephant - January Stampedewww.mamaelephant.com

I’m super super excited this month to share with you my first stamp designed with Mama Elephant! Meet Pix (short for Pixelette), a little bunny who loves adventures! This stamp set focuses on the things that Pix likes to do: planting, reading, coffee, her little kitty and more!

PIXS FAVORITES

So today, I’m sharing a card I made with Pix’s Favorites. I’m also using Hillside cc which is perfect with the tree stump and sitting Pix.

Mama Elephant - Pix's Favorites

I blended different greens onto each little hill adhered foam tape and double sided tape under different parts of the hill to create dimensions in certain parts.

I also adhered the leaves and a little mushroom on the hill.
