Holiday Shaker Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Snow Friends” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I have a holiday shaker card to share with you this week, this time using Mama Elephant’s “Snow Friends” stamp set!
12
I cut my panels and window from white card stock using Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I cut a hill shape from the panel I had left from cutting my window and shaded it with a grey alcohol marker and blender pen. I cut some acetate down to size and adhered it to the back of my frame using Scor-Tape and adhered my hill panel in to place.
34
I secured some white card stock in my Misti stamping tool and stamped my images using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them using my alcohol markers, adding highlights and details using a white gel pen. I fussy cut them out and popped them up on my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
56
I blended the panel I cut using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts using Shaded Lilac and Broken China Distress Oxide Inks. I distressed the panel using a paint brush and some water, cleaning up the excess water before also splattering my panel with white metallic paint. I doubled up my 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape on the back of my main panel to allow room for my sequins to move inside my card, I dusted my window and the inside of the foam tape as well as my splattered panel using my powder tool to ensure they wouldn’t cling to any particular spots. I added my sequins and sealed off my shaker with my splattered panel.
7
I stamped my sentiment with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink using my Misti stamping tool and cut it out using the smallest of Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts. I popped it up in the top right hand corner using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape again before adhering my panel to my card base.

Holiday Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Little Penguin Agenda” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
This week I’m sharing another Christmas/Holiday themed card! I’m in love with the Little Agenda sets from Mama Elephant, so this week I used the “Little Penguin Agenda” stamp set!
1
I started by cutting out all the panels I would need for my card. I cut two panels from white card stock using the largest and second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative cuts, and two panels using the small scalloped die from Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts. I used the window die from the “Basic Rectangles” set to cut a window in one of my scalloped panels. I stamped all of the penguins from the “Little Penguin Agenda” stamp set using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink in my Misti stamping tool. I coloured them with my alcohol markers, added details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out.
2
I blended Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Inks on to the smaller of my rectangle panels and my scalloped panel without the window, finishing them off with some white metallic splatter to give the effect of shimmery snowfall.
3
I secured my scalloped panel with the window in to my Misti and stamped my sentiment from Mama Elephant’s “Snow Friends” stamp set using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink.
4
I adhered my rectangle panels together using Scor-Tape, and my scalloped panels together using Scor-Tape also. I popped my scalloped panel up in the centre of my rectangle panels, added my penguins in to the windows using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered my panel to my card base.

Three Christmas Cards Using Mama Elephant’s “The Penguin’s Waddle” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
I’m starting to get prepared for Christmas this year to avoid the last minute rush that usually happens late November/early December! If you’re looking for a way to make quick cards that are easy to make multiples of, “The Penguin’s Waddle” stamp set from Mama Elephant is perfect! I have three cards using this set to share with you today!
12
I cut three panels from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my penguins on my panels using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink, two vertically and one horizontally. I stamped a copy on some masking paper and carefully trimmed it out and placed my mask over my penguins on one of the vertical panels. I shifted my panel over to the side and stamped my second lot of penguins above my mask to create the fuller panel of penguins. I coloured my horizontal panel and my vertical panel with the most penguins using my alcohol markers, I also coloured the penguins on the second vertical panel but left the top portion of my panel white and fussy cut them out. I added highlights and details using a white gel pen, including some snow on the panels where I coloured the background.
34
I cut another panel from white card stock with the same die as before and blended it with Shaded Lilac and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks. I splattered some water on my panel with a paintbrush and cleaned off the excess to give it the distressed look, this will be my “snow” for this card! Once my ink on the panel was dry I secured it in my Misti and stamped my “Warm Wishes” sentiment from Waffle Flower’s “Fall Greetings” stamp set directly on my panel using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I popped up my penguins I fussy cut earlier at the bottom using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
5
I secured my horizontal panel in to my Misti next and stamped my sentiment from Mama Elephant’s “Snow Friends” stamp set also using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink.
6
I secured a strip of black card stock in to my Misti and prepped it with my powder tool applicator. I stamped my sentiment from Mama Elephant’s “Cool Penguin” stamp set using Versamark ink, coated it in Lawn Fawn’s White embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I trimmed it down to size and used my white gel pen to create the stitched effect around the sides. I popped my sentiment up using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
7
I cut three black panels using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I adhered each of my panels to the black panels and to my card bases using Scor-Tape.

Christmas Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Yappy Woofmas” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Christmas is only a couple of days away now, where has this year gone?! I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas (or happy holidays, whichever you prefer!) before the big day! I wanted to revisit which is probably my favourite stamp set I’ve bought for the holidays this year, Mama Elephant’s “Yappy Woofmas” set is just too adorable for words!
1.jpg
I stamped a couple of the images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers. I added some highlights with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out. I just had to use the cute fluffy dog wrapped in the Christmas lights as he looks like my parents’ dog, as this was their card for this year I couldn’t resist!
2.jpg
I cut a panel from the Mama Elephant “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts and ink blended it using Broken China and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink. I distressed it using my distress sprayer and once it was dry I drew small dots using a white gel pen for the snowy effect.
3.jpg
I cut another panel from white card stock using the same die, drew a hill shape across it and cut along the line before adhering it in to place.
4.jpg5.jpg
I prepped my panel using my powder tool applicator, stamped my sentiment from My Favorite Things “Happy Pawlidays” stamp set on the white hillside using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I popped my images up with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I decided to stamp Santa with his reindeer from Lawn Fawn’s “Winter Skies” stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink to add a little extra to my panel. I cut the larger panel from the “Framed Tags” Creative Cuts and splattered it with Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink and some white gold metallic watercolour paint for some shimmer before adhering everything to my card base.

Thanks for reading lovelies! I hope you all have a wonderful time over the holidays and I’ll see you again just before the new year!

Cute Christmas Card Using Mama Elephant “Cool Penguin” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I wanted to share with you a card I made using Mama Elephant’s “Cool Penguin” set! These penguins are just far too adorable I couldn’t resist them!

I stamped my images out using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers. I added some details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
I cut a panel from white card stock and coated it with Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink, sprayed it with my distress sprayer and cleaned up the excess water. I splattered it with some white watercolour paint to give it a wintery feel!
I cut the frame for my scene from the new Mama Elephant “Framed Tag” Waverly Creative Cuts, using the big scalloped die for the frame itself and the smaller one to cut the window from it. I cut a panel to lay my frame on from the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant.
I stamped my sentiment directly on to my distress oxide background using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Once I decided my placement for all of the penguins I adhered everything down inside the scalloped frame. I popped the framed panel up with foam tape for extra dimension and adhered everything to my card base.

Christmas Card Using Avery Elle “A Merry Little Christmas” Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I’m sharing another Christmas card, this time using Avery Elle’s “A Merry Little Christmas” stamp set!
1.jpg
I stamped my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers, added highlights and details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out. I had so much fun colouring up this set, all of the images are just too cute!
2.jpg
I die cut my base panel using the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant and ink blended it with Broken China Distress Oxide ink. I sprayed the panel with my Distress sprayer and cleaned up the excess water. Once it was fully dry I splattered it with white gold metallic watercolour paint and some white watercolour paint to give the impression of snow falling.
3.jpg
Once my panel was dry I used my powder tool on it to avoid excess embossing powder sticking to my background. I stamped my sentiment using Versamark ink, coated it in white embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I cut an extra panel from the “Basic Rectangle” Creative Cuts and cut a curved hill shape from it with my scissors. I adhered my hill to my panel and decided placement for my images. I adhered the mouse and bear at the back flat, and popped up the hedgehog, penguin and mouse at the front using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape before adhering my panel to my card to finish!

Adorable Christmas Card Using Mama Elephant “Yappy Woofmas” Set!

Hey lovelies!
Are you all preparing for Christmas yet? There have been so many amazing sets being released lately it’s hard not to think about the holidays! I couldn’t wait to dive in to this lot of cuties from the Mama Elephant “Yappy Woofmas” set! I have two dogs of my own, meaning I have a serious soft spot when there’s a new set filled with cute dogs!
1.jpg
I stamped my images using Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers. I ended up only using three of them for this card and set the others aside for a separate project! I added blush to their cheeks with a pink coloured pencil, as well as details and highlights using a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
2.jpg
I die cut a panel using the Mama Elephant “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and cut some windows on my panel with the Lawn Fawn “Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables” dies to keep with the stitched theme! Once I was finished with die cutting I splattered some silver and pale gold metallic watercolour paint on my panel, unfortunately this doesn’t show too well in photos but it adds a lovely shimmer to the card when it hits the light!
3
I used Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide ink and blended it on to some white card stock before spraying it with my distress sprayer. I cut this in to sections to become the backgrounds of the windows in my panel!
4.jpg
I stamped my sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Winter Skies” set directly on to my panel using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I adhered the backgrounds to the smaller hearts directly against the back of the panel, but added some foam tape for the larger heart to add some depth. I popped my little dogs in place and adhered my panel to my card base!

Simple Christmas Cards Using Mama Elephant’s “Little Agenda” Sets!

Hello there lovelies!
Time to dust off my laptop and get back to blogging! I took a short break but I’m back now, with exciting news! I’m thrilled to share with you that I have joined a group of talented crafters on the Bumbleberry Papercrafts design team! Bumbleberry’s is a UK based store that carries quality craft supplies from leading American brands, so if you’re like me and reside in the UK but struggle to find some of your favourite brands without paying a fortune in shipping – head on over to the shop to have a look around!
Today I have a mini set of 3 Christmas cards to share with you as my first project at Bumbleberry’s, anybody else find themselves panicking about how many cards you have to make in the small amount of time you have before the holidays? The Little Agenda stamps are a perfect solution to this, the images are small enough so colouring is over in a flash! Paired with the Basic Rectangle Creative Cuts also from Mama Elephant made creating these so incredibly quick and easy!

I stamped these adorable snowmen from the Little Snowman Agenda set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers. I added some highlights using a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
23
I cut my panel and the window using the Basic Rectangle Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant. I prepped my panel using my powder tool, stamped my sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Christmas Dreams stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder before setting it with my heat tool.
456
Now that my front panel was ready, I blended some Broken China Distress Oxide Ink on a strip of white card stock, distressed it using my distress sprayer and cleaned up the excess water. I adhered it to the back of my panel, popped my little snowmen in to place and adhered it to my card base!
P1 Snowmen.jpg
I cut multiple panels at once in order to make this a mini set of 3! Here are the other two cards I created using the Little Reindeer Agenda and Little Santa Agenda sets:
