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!

Hello again! I am back with another project using Mama Elephant’s brand new Anniversary release! Today, the design team is using the stamp set Sentiments from a Yeti along with the coordinating creative cuts.

I first die cut the curly frame from Framed Tags Union Square creative cuts. This curly frame is one of my favourite die because it covers such a big area on my card and is perfect to ground any images!

SH - Sentiments from a Yeti - 1

The background was blended using just yellow and light blue ink with some white paint flicked onto the colours. I then cut out the huge yeti from Me and My Yeti holding onto a christmas tree, adhered in the middle of the frame.

I tucked the adorable star ornament from Sentiments from a Yeti and finished it off with one of the sentiments from the same set.

Thanks for stopping by!

Today, I have a card to show you guys, featuring Me and My Yeti and it’s coordinating creative cuts. Of course, I also threw in the Hexagon die cut in here because that’s my new go-to die now!

I first die cut an offset hexagon using Framed Tags Hexastar and I blended a simple pink/blue background.

SH - Me and my Yeti - 1

I then stamped the Yeti, little boy and little girl on some cardstock, coloured them and die cut them out using the coordinating dies.

Finished off with a simple sentiment stamped on the border of the hexagon. The sentiment is from one of my favourite Christmas stamp set City Sidewalks.

I am using the adorable Little Santa Agenda in my Christmas project! I first stamped the bubbles from Puffy Holiday Greetings, and stitched a piece of vellum over the card base to tone down the ink.

Then I adhered the santas over the vellum using foam tape and finished the card off with a simple and bold sentiment in the middle using the Occasional Labels stamp set. This set is free when you spent more than $100!

Good morning everyone! I’m over at Mama Elephant‘s blog with a project using Little Girl Agenda and the large Grid Window creative cuts.

The first thing I did was stamp a few of these cuties out and coloured them with my copics.

DS - Little Girl Agenda - 1

Then I blended my card base with pink, yellow and blue, flicked some white paint and water onto the colours and let the magic work it’s way through the colours. Next, I die cut a piece of cardstock with the Grid Window creative cuts. Because I usually create smaller cards (3.5×5), I decided to offset the grid window since I couldn’t fit the entire window on my card.

DS - Little Girl Agenda - 2

I adhered the grid window using some foam tape so I could create a shaker card with 2 of the windows.

DS - Little Girl Agenda - 3

And there you have it! Since I don’t have a lot of complete windows, I only put glitter into 2 of the complete ones so they don’t spill everywhere.

Can you see the glitter behind these little girls?

Good morning everyone! I’m over at Mama Elephant‘s blog with a project using Little Boy Agenda. I created a similar card for my Spooky stampede but I wanted to show you here step by step as to how I did the background.

First and foremost: colouring! I stamped out these cuties and coloured them with my copics.

DS - Little Boy Agenda - 1

Then, I stamped the little envelopes from Incoming Mail all over the card base as well as onto a piece of post it. I used my craft knife to cut out the envelope for the masking. When you position the post-it for blending, you can offset it a little to the left/right/top/bottom.

DS - Little Boy Agenda - 2

After the blending, remove the post-it and here you have it! A perfect offset shadow!

DS - Little Boy Agenda - 3

After I have finished colouring the rest of the envelopes, I took the smallest triangle from the stamp set Zenith Borders and stamped it in between the empty spaces.

DS - Little Boy Agenda - 4

And here you have it! A very simple background!

DS - Little Boy Agenda - 5

I adhered one of the agenda boys on the packages and the arrow agenda boys on the left and right of the package. Finished with a sentiment from Happy Mail
