Good morning! We’re back for our last day for Mama Elephant‘s March release and today, we’re taking a closer look at Congrats All Around. I just love the little frame and the little chick sticking out from behind!

I’m back to the tall skinny format card because I just love the amount of vertical space I have to work with! Using only 3 colours, I blended a rainbow and flicked some water and white opaque paint onto the card base. Using the watermark ink (haven’t used that in a long time!), I repeated the sentiment “Way to Go!” from the stamp set as the background.

You can see the subtle sentiment stamping here! I adhered the frame using some foam tape to give the card some dimensions.

Hello and good morning! I’m back with a card with Mama Elephant‘s March release. I love these Timeless Tulips in this release and it’s the perfect time for this! Aside from Spring coming up, we’ve also got Mother’s Day coming up and these are the perfect stamp set to use!

I masked off some stripes and did some gradient blending for a simple background. I wanted a simple background to showcase the gorgeous tulips!

Yes these are handcut… but they’re not difficult to fussy cut! I coloured them with my copics and added some clear gems so they look like they’re droplets of water on the card. Likewise, you could use glossy accents for this 🙂

Good morning! I’m back with these cuties from Mama Elephant‘s latest release in March. We’ve got a bunch of cuties in this Lil Party Animals stamp set that’s perfect for all parties!

I wanted to create a dreamy and colourful background for these little bunnies. I die cut an opening in the middle to bring the focus to the bunnies and the birthday cake.

Hello everyone! Unfortunately I couldn’t participate in the stampede this month… but I am back with my first stamp highlight with the adorable Nom Nom Kitties with Mama Elephant!

I’ve always wanted to do a tall skinny card ever since I got some tall envelopes, and this stamp set would make the perfect card to go with my Japanese envelopes!

SH - Nom Nom Kitties

I used some washi tapes to do the masking and blending for a plaid panel. I cut my circle out with Sew Fancy creative cuts, and adhered little kitty in the center.

With all those food circling little kitty, I’m pretty sure she was thinking “YASSSSSSS!”

Hello everyone and happy Friday! I’m with Mama Elephant today for a cute project using the Cute Basket creative cuts. This basket is just perfect for dressing up little gifts or for children projects for the upcoming Easter!

First, I cut 2 pieces of the basket. Each basket is built using 2 pieces, 1 for each side. These are secured using brads… so if you have boxes of unused brads, this is where you can use it on!

Now to assemble my basket! I also cut out a scallop handle and a regular handle using white and pattern paper. I love the adorable scallop fringe!

Now it’s time to dress up my cute basket! I used an oldie but goodie stamp set Bloomsies for the fancy banner.

Next, I add a little bit more but colouring these cuties from Carried Away.

Stamp Highlight – His Love

February 24, 2017

Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week so far! Today, we’ll be taking a closer look at another Mama Elephant February release stamp set called His Love. This is a gorgeous stamp set with beautiful hand-lettering and an intricate cross.

Of course I had to showcase that hand-lettering! I tried to make a card where the focus is on the bold sentiment and nothing else. But I didn’t want it too boring…

SH - His Love

So I blended a pink and blue together for my cardbase and using some silkscreens, I painted some white cross onto the blended card base. Very simple, bold, but won’t take away the focus on the large sentiment.

It might be a little hard to see the tiny water splatters and glitter and white paint. I love watching the ink react to the splatters!

Good morning everyone! I’m back with Mama Elephant‘s February stamp highlight and this time, we’re showcasing another set of fun alphabets called Iconic Letters. I love the outlines and the solid alphabets and these can be used by itself, or two-step stamping.

I needed wanted a bold Valentine card for my hubby so I blended the entire card base in pink and stamped my sentiment in a white frame. Of course I had to put Pix holding her Valentine heart onto this card!

Did you notice the solid letters aren’t exactly solid? There’s a little bit of grunge feeling to it if you use it by itself!
