Hello and welcome back to another Stamp Highlight day! Today, we’re taking a closer look at Dragon Wishes stamp set, and this set is filled with sentiments that you can use with Me and My Dragon, or just with the little dragons from the same stamp set.

I wanted to create a scene with two dragons blowing the candles on the birthday cake, so I stamped out and coloured the two dragons that are facing each other. The card panel is die cut using the newly released Basic Circles creative cuts and I blended the mountains for the background using Kingdom trio creative cuts.

Here’s a closeup of the card! Below is a list of the copic colours that I used for my dragons.

Good morning everyone! I’m here with a card using one of the newest released stamp sets from Mama Elephant. This is one my favourite stamps from this release because of all the colouring possibilities there are with the dragons!

Using the Kingdom Trio creative cuts, I blended the background (LOVE the mountains!) and I stitched around the border to create the frame for where my dragons will go.

I coloured the dragons in copics and adhered them onto the card using foam tape.

Good morning!!! I can’t believe we’re into the third month of 2018. The first two months just flew by! Mama Elephant is back this month with another amazing release and I’m pretty sure this will excite a lot of people who like to colour.

For my stampede project, I created a simple love card using the two dragons from Me and My Dragon as well as the newly released Kingdom Trio creative cuts.

Stampede - Me and My Dragon

I first masked off the heart in the middle using FBA – Love creative cuts, then masked off the mountains with the new Kingdom Trio creative cuts and blended in the ink. The clouds were die cut using the dies On the Hills creative cuts.

Good morning everyone! I’m super sad that I missed out on creating some bunny cards for you last month, but I’m back with this super adorable stamp set called Tea with Friends that’s part of Mama Elephant‘s February release.

I first stamped out all the elements I want to put on my card. I used the Mama bunny from Tea with Friends and the little bunny is from Picnic with Friends.

Have I ever told you I love the curly bracket die from Framed Tags – Union Square? If I could, I’d use it on every card! I cut out the middle with the bracket die and blended a pink/orange/yellow blend onto the card base.

After I finish blending the background, it’s time to put all the pieces together.

And here’s the finished card! Just in time for the Peter Rabbit movie too!

Here’s a close up of the card, where you can see the white and water splatters against the blended background.

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.

SH - Pretty Lovely

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.

SH - Fly With Me

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