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 Rose Distress Oxide Ink and mounted the card front onto a blush colored card base.  I like this card so much I do not want to give it away!!!  Hope you give this a try.

Little Elf Agenda is next....


I love the Little Agenda Series because you can mix and match them with your other Mama Elephant stamp sets.  here I wanted to add a "big" elf from the Christmas Spirit stamp set with the adorable little sleigh.  The tiny snowman is from the Me and My Yeti stamp set and the sentiment is from Jingle Greetings.

I colored the images with copic markers and wanted a simple background.  I used Distress Oxide ink in Candied Apple and heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.  Finally, I used the Lots of Stars Creative Cuts die to make a starry snow storm.

I had a blast making these cards and enjoy the rest of the hop. Scroll down to see the special promotions and links to the other fabulous designers projects!!!

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.


Here’s my YouTube video in case you missed it:


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

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:


See the full video tutorial here:


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