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.

Thanks for stopping by!

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!

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!

Good morning everyone! I’m back with another project showcasing the super adorable Puffy Holiday Greetings from Mama Elephant‘s September release! Yes these sentiments do not have a die cut, but they’re super easy to cut out!

They are also great for background stamping or even making your own gift wrap! I first stamped one of the super “Yeti” sentiment in three very non-traditional Christmas colours. Actually, I added a blue just to make it non-traditional!

And with that sentiment, of course I had to use the cute Me and My Yeti stamp set giving out warm hugs for Christmas day!

So… was anybody super excited about the new Little Reindeer Agenda and Little Santa Agenda when you saw the sneaks? Or, got your little agenda stamps and not sure how to place all those reindeers and santas? Here’s one project featuring Little Reindeer Agenda and the coordinating creative cuts. And of course, one little santa makes his way into the card naturally!

I decided to make a snowglobe shaker card and what’s better than reindeer snowglobe to match all those reindeers? I began the card by die cutting a circle in the middle using FBA – Snow Deer as well as antlers with brown paper.

Next, I stamped a little city scene using City Sidewalks. I kept the colouring relatively simple so it ldn’t be too distracting when I adhere the reindeers to the card.

I used the little reindeers holding the candy cane and a few running reindeers –
with Rudolph in front! – and Santa in the sleigh behind them.

Hope this inspired you to make more Christmas cards in advance!

Welcome back to another stamp highlight, featuring the adorable A Beary Christmas! The design team is back with another card using Mama Elephant‘s big Anniversary release and we are all so excited that you are here to check out the inspiration!

Today, I decided to make another tall and skinny card for my project using A Beary Christmas and its coordinating creative cuts. I first cut out a scallop border using the scallop die cut from Hexastar. On the card base, I blended some gold ink for the background to ground the scallop card piece.

Next, I stamped out the adorable bears and arranged them on my card for a cozy holiday scene. I just love how well each image pairs up with each other!

I hope you like my project and come back tomorrow for another round of Mama Elephant inspiration!
