Mama Elephant - Yappy Woofmas Shaker Card with Soft Ink Blending Tutorial

Hi Everyone!

Christmas is almost here!!! I am super excited to Guest Design today and wanted to share this super fun shaker card.

I used the "Yappy Woofmas", "Polar Pals" and "Sentiments from a Yeti" to create my card.  The dog images are super adorable!  I also used the "Cloud Nine" and "Columbus Circle" dies to create my shaker card.


Here are the Copic marker colors used:

Green: G00, G000, G02
Pink/Red: RV10, RV11, RV13, R22, R24
Brown: E30, E31

I also show my soft ink blending process, you can see it here on the "On the Hills" die:

As always, thank you so much for allowing me to share my love of cardmaking and for watching my videos!  Happy Holidays!

Thanks for stopping by,

Mama Elephant's #celebrating6years Anniversary Event

Happy Anniversary Mama Elephant!!
This release is super SPECTACULAR and I was so happy to work with the Cool Penguins stamp set!  The set comes with the most adorable penguins getting ready to wrap some holiday gifts.  I used the Basic Rectangles die set to create a window opening as these penguin friends are going to wrap their gifts together.  I also really adore the sentiment that comes with the stamp set.

I wanted to keep the coloring super simple on this card and used a few light colored Copic markers.  My favorite Copics are the ones that end in 0000 and 000 because I can achieve a light almost watercolor look.  
Here are the colors I used: B00, RV02, RV23, YR00, YR000

To finish off the card I wanted to add the star banner from the Sentiments from a Yeti stamp set, its one of my all time favorite stamps.  The set also comes with a banner that is oh so cute.  I love stars on a background and used the Lots of Stars Creative Cuts die.  I ink blended the background with Tattered Ros…

Sister Stamps Bunny Cards ft Pixie and Dixie

Welcome to Sister Stamps Release #29.


This release features adorable little animals that can be used to “peek” over elements on your card. I love how you can position your image in such a unique way.
As a side note I’m super honored that Jenny named two of the images after my own two babies, Buster and Peanut!!! 
I decided to use the “Pixie” and “Dixie” images and I decided to get creative with some Heidi Swapp Picturesque Project Life Cards to create the "meadow" background.  The elements on the project life cards were perfect as the circle and label details were already on the card.  Love how these cards transformed themselves.  I am also in love with the Mama Elephant word dies, they are the perfect size and font and added the touch I was looking for.

Hope you all enjoy and join me for my next project tomorrow!

Sister Stamps Vertical Step Card ft Peanut and Bobo

As a side note I’m super honored that Jenny named two of the images after my own two babies, Buster and Peanut!!! 
I decided to use the “Peanut” and “Bobo” image and of course I was in a “Halloween” kind of mood, I used elements from the Simple Stories Frankie and Friends paper collection. This step card was easy to make (dimensions below) and I thought it made the perfect backdrop for the “peeking” quality of the stamps.  This card I chose to move it vertically so the peeking animals can look to the side, love the way this came out

Having recently moved and in between places, I didn’t have my whole craft arsenal with me, I am so pleasantly surprised at what I was able to come up with just a paper trimmer, patterned paper and adhesive (AND the stamps of course!)

Rainbow Ombre Card - Sister Stamps - Release 28 Kyana

Day 3!!!!! I really enjoyed working with these AMAZING stamps, getting me thinkin' about going to the beach!!!  Here is today's share using Kyana!!  I have been really inspired by color lately and wanted to make a bunch of tropical flowers in all sorts of rainbow ombre goodness.  I used some new inks I purchased and i love them, they are the Colorbok Paintbox in the Pastel theme (more like a light neon finish to me but beautiful vibrant colors nonetheless)  if you dont want to invest in tons of inkpads I highly recommend these as you can use them together or pop out individual inks to use just one color - VERY easy to use.  Back to Kyana, loved surrounding her with the flowers I created using the My Favorite Things Tropical Sensations stamp and die set.  The hello die cut is from Mama Elephant.  Hope you enjoy this card, make sure to make the most of this summer and see ya in the next release!!!

Start to Finish - Beachy Shaker Card - Sister Stamps - Release 28 Aulii

We've made it to day two and I could not wait to color the Sandcastle and the super cute Aulii, she is so precious with her little starfish.  I thought this stamp pairing would be perfect for a a sandy beachy shaker card.  Shaker cards always make me nervous but I'm getting better at it, I used foam sheets to create dimension between the acetate and backing, the space in between provides enough space to pack your shaker with lots of glittery goodness.  I used Pink Paislee Nantucket collection, Mama Elephant Peek a Frame dies, decorative sand and yellow sequins.  Hope you enjoy and see ya tomorrow!
