Birthday Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Big News” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I’m sharing a birthday card using the adorable “Big News” stamp set from Mama Elephant! I love that this set comes with so many sentiments so it can be used for all different occasions!
12
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my images using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers. I added some highlights and details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
4
I used the “Watercolor Stripes” stencil from Altenew with Broken China and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks to create what is going to be the background of my panel. I distressed my panel using my distress sprayer and splattered it with Pine Needles Distress Oxide Ink.
75
I used the Mama Elephant “Framed Tags Waverly” Creative Cuts to create a window from white card stock and trimmed down my background to fit behind it. I adhered the two together using Scor-Tape.

I adhered my balloons flat to my background with Scor-Tape and my characters with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to give some dimension. Once everything was in place I adhered my panel to my card base with Scor-Tape.

Birthday Card Using Heffy Doodle’s “Oh Crumbs” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
It was my mum’s birthday on Friday, she’s just as obsessed with dogs as I am so what better set to use for her card than the adorable “Oh Crumbs” stamp set from Heffy Doodle?! As soon as I saw this set I knew it was a must have, the corgis are just the sweetest and I love how you even have the option for spinner cards with the front and back end of one of them!
12.jpg
Any time I get a new stamp set I always start by stamping the entire thing out so I have plenty to colour before deciding which images I want to work with, I use my Misti to do this as I find it’s quick and easy to stamp an entire set out at once. I coloured up one of the corgis and some of the extras with my alcohol markers. I added some white highlights and details with a gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
3
I used the largest scalloped stitched die from Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts to cut a panel from heavy weight white card stock. I blended my background over the Altenew “Watercolor Stripes” Stencil, using Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink on the outside edges and blending Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink in the centre. I sprayed my panel lightly with my distress sprayer and cleaned up the excess water with a paper towel.
45
I cut a circle from white card stock using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts and lightly blended the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. I secured my circle in to my Misti and prepared it with my powder tool applicator. I stamped the “Oh Crumbs!” part of my sentiment directly on to my circle, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. While the melted embossing powder was still hot I covered it with embossing powder again and heat set it, to give it a smoother and more raised effect.
6
I cut a small strip of white card stock down to fit my second half of my sentiment and used Versafine Onyx Black ink once again to stamp it, however I didn’t choose to heat emboss this part.
78.jpg
I cut a panel of white card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative cuts and blending from the outside in using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. I adhered both of my panels together using 1/2″ Scor-Tape. I adhered my circle flat to my panel and arranged my scene on top of it. I used my 1/2″ Scor-Tape to adhere the teapot and sugar bowl before popping my other images up with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I finished up by popping my sentiment strip up with foam tape too and adhering my panel to my card base with Scor-Tape.

Thanks for reading lovelies! Is there a specific stamp category you have a weakness for? For me anything with dogs or food feels like a must have, which made this one impossible to resist for me! I’ll be back next week with another card, see you then!

Get Well Soon Card Using Lawn Fawn’s “Get Well Before ‘N Afters” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
With all of the cold weather we’ve been having it seems it’s germ season! Almost everyone I know has the cold/flu (myself included!) so this week I thought I’d share a simple get well soon card to send to your loved ones while they’re a little under the weather!
1.jpg
I stamped the cute sick whale from Lawn Fawn’s “Get Well Before ‘N Afters” stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with my alcohol markers. I used a white gel pen to add some highlights as well as dotted details to the whale’s cheeks before fussy cutting my image out.
2.jpg3.jpg4
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I covered the top half of my panel with some post it tape so I could use a stencil on the lower half without marking the top area of my panel. I used the Altenew “Halftone” Stencil and Iced Spruce Distress Oxide ink to blend the bottom half of my panel to create the pattern at the bottom. Once I was happy with the stencilling, I removed the post it tape from the top and used it to cover the pattern the stencil had created. I used Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink, mixed them with water on my glass craft mat and splattered the top half of my panel with both ink colours.
56
Once the ink splatter was dry I wrapped two pieces of twine around my panel just above the pattern on the bottom and adhered them to the back. I took a small strip of white card stock and stamped my sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I popped up my whale just above the top piece of twine and my sentiment on the bottom half of my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
7.jpg8.jpg
I cut another panel from white card stock using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts this time and blended the edges using Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Oxide ink. I used 1/2″ Scor-Tape to adhere both of my panels together and on to my card base.

Thanks for reading lovelies! I hope you’re all well, and if you do have the sniffles I hope you feel better soon! I’ll see you next week with another card.

Birthday Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Stackable Cuties” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m back this week to share a birthday card using Mama Elephant’s “Stackable Cuties” stamp set!
12
I cut a panel from white card stock using Altenew’s “Cube Cover” die and another panel the same size to back it with. I placed some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink on my glass craft mat and sprayed it with some water, I placed my backing panel on to my ink multiple times making sure to dry it with my heat tool between layers. Once I was happy with my background panel I splattered both panels with Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink and pink metallic watercolour paint to give it a little shimmer. Once both layers were dry I adhered them together.
3.jpg4
I cut a small circle from white card stock using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts and trimmed down a black strip of card. I adhered both of these to my panel flat.
56.jpg7.jpg
I stamped my images from Mama Elephant’s “Stackable Cuties” stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers. I added some white highlights with a gel pen before fussy cutting them out. I adhered the elephant and fox flat to the circle and popped the unicorn up with a piece of 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I prepared some white card stock using my powder tool applicator and stamped my little speech bubble sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder before setting it with my heat tool. I fussy cut my speech bubble out and popped it up on my panel. I cut a piece of black card stock slightly larger than my panel, adhered it at the back to frame my card and adhered to my card base.

Simple Watercolour Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Flying With Friends” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I’m sharing a simple card using the “Flying With Friends” stamp set from Mama Elephant! I’m guilty of always wanting to add “more” to my cards but sometimes a simple small scene is all you really need!
1.jpg23.jpg
I cut a panel from watercolour paper using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I stamped the elephant on the left first using Ranger Archival Jet Black ink and created a mask for him before stamping my second elephant sitting next to him. I coloured my images and created a soft background for them using my Altenew watercolour paints. Once my paint was dry I added some highlights to my images with a white gel pen. I prepared my panel with my powder tool applicator before stamping my sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s “Let’s Toast” stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink to the top left of my images, I coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool.
4.jpg5.jpg
I created a panel from white card stock using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and ink blended it with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink around the edges. I distressed my panel with my Distress Sprayer and cleaned up the excess water. Once my panel was dry I adhered my watercolour panel to the centre and adhered them to my card base.

Coffee With A Splash Of Love! Using Altenew’s “Coffee With A Splash” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Sharing another love themed card this week, this time I’m sharing my love for coffee with you using the Altenew “Coffee With A Splash” stamp set! This style is way out of my comfort zone as I’m familiar with using cutesy images on my card, it’s always good to dust off the cobwebs and dive in to something a little different!
1.jpg2
I started by cutting two panels of card stock from the largest and second largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant, one from black card stock and the other from white. I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to create the coffee background by placing some of the ink on to my glass craft mat, spraying it with water, repeatedly placing my white panel in to it and drying between every layer. I used the same ink and some gold metallic watercolour paint to splatter my panel also to add a little more texture to the background. Once my panel was completely dry I stamped my coffee stains all over the background using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
3
I cut a circle from black card stock using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts. I prepped my circle with my powder tool applicator, stamped my coffee cup with Versamark ink and heat embossed it using Lawn Fawn’s white embossing powder.
45
I cut a sentiment strip from white card stock and prepped it with my powder tool applicator. I stamped my sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I adhered both my black circle with my coffee cup and my sentiment strip to my background with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape before adhering my background to my black panel. I adhered this to my card base and finished with some Ebony Black Nuvo drops for embellishment!

Cute Valentine’s Day Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Little Bear Agenda” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
This week I’m sharing a Valentine’s Day card using Mama Elephant’s “Little Bear Agenda” stamp set! I have a feeling these cuties are going to be appearing in a lot of my love themed cards this year!
1.jpg
I stamped the entire set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them using my alcohol markers, I like to batch stamp/colour when I know I’m going to be making lots of cards with this set! I added details and highlights using a white gel pen and fussy cut my images out.
2.jpg
I cut down a piece of white card stock and used the “Halftone Stencil” from Altenew to ink it up with “Tumbled Glass” Distress Oxide Ink. I used Avery Elle’s “Photo Mat Elle-Ments” dies to cut out my polaroid photo frame from my card stock and once extra with some plain white card stock. I adhered both of the photo frames together to make it a little sturdier.
3.jpg4.jpg
I took the pieces of the scene from the white layer of the die and coloured them to create my background. I used my alcohol markers for the grass and clouds and “Tumbled Glass” Distress Oxide Ink once again for my sky. I cut some trees from Lawn Fawn’s “Shadow Box Card” dies and used my alcohol markers to colour them also. I adhered my photo frame to some white card stock the same size as the frame itself and assembled my background inside it.
5.jpg
I added my little bears and my trees to my background scene. I took a panel of white card stock slightly larger than the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant, smooshed some of the “Tumbled Glass” Distress Oxide Ink on to my glass crafting mat, sprayed it with water and placed my card stock on top making sure to dry between each layer. I repeated the process with some gold watercolour paint before cutting it with the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I cut a vellum layer using the largest die from the “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts by Mama Elephant to separate the background from my polaroid frame. I adhered these three layers together, stamped my sentiment from Neat and Tangled’s “Beavers Eh” stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black ink and cut it from the washi tape die in the Avery Elle “Photo Mat Elle-Ments” die set. I popped my sentiment up on the vellum using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to match the thickness of the photo frame, adhered my panel to my card base and added some blue Nuvo Drops to finish.

Simple Watercolour Card Using Concord & 9th’s “Monster Love” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
We’ve shifted from Christmas cards to Valentine’s Day cards in the craft world, so today I thought I’d share with you this simple card using Concord & 9th’s “Monster Love” stamp set! As soon as these cuties were released I knew I had to have them!
4
I stamped my monster and his tummy first using Archival Jet Black ink on some watercolour paper. I masked the monster while I stamped the balloon and string, I used the “love you” sentiment in the balloon this time to fit with the theme.
1.jpg
I used Altenew’s watercolour palette to colour my monster and background. I also dotted some of the paint around the background while it was still damp to add the confetti look to my panel. I finished up by adding some white highlights using a white gel pen before using the Mama Elephant “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut out my panel.
2.jpg3
I cut a sentiment strip and prepped it using my powder tool applicator. I stamped my sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I cut another panel using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant again to frame my panel, adhered my watercolour panel to it and used 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to attach my sentiment to my panel. I adhered my panel to my card base and decided to leave it there to keep it simple!

Friendship Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Heart In Bloom” Stamp Set! (With Matching Tags!)

Hello lovelies, Happy New Year!
I hope you’ve all had a fantastic time over the holidays and you’re settling in to 2019 quite nicely, today I wanted to share a friendship card and some matching tags I’ve made using the Mama Elephant “Heart In Bloom” stamp set! How beautiful is this floral stamp? I’m positively in love with it!
1.jpg2.jpg3.jpg
I started by stamping out the large floral heart with the banner in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colouring it with my alcohol markers, I’m so used to colouring floral stamps with my watercolour paints it was refreshing to have a change! Once I had finished colouring I added some highlights and dotted details with a white gel pen and stamped my sentiment in the banner using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I fussy cut the heart out and moved on to my background.
4.jpg5.jpg6.jpg
I cut a panel using the Altenew “Cube Cover” die from white card stock and splattered it with pink metallic watercolour paint. I knew I wanted the colour within the negative space to be neutral as I wanted the floral heart to really pop, so I took Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink and smooshed it on my glass craft mat before spraying it with water. I took another panel of white card stock and placed it on the ink on my craft mat repeatedly, drying between layers until I was happy with the outcome. I cut it down to the same size as my die cut panel and adhered them together.
7.jpg
I popped my floral heart up on my panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered it to my card base. I finished my card off with some Bottle Green Nuvo Crystal Drops before leaving it in a safe place for them to dry for 24 hours.
P12 ME Heart In Bloom
For my matching tags I just took some blank tags I had leftover from last Christmas and stamped each of them with the single flower from the set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured them once again using my alcohol markers and used a white gel pen for the highlights. I stamped the flower on some masking paper and cut it out to cover the flower while I splattered each of the tags with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink and pink metallic watercolour paint. I waited for them to dry before stamping my sentiment down the side using Versafine Onyx Black ink and attached a ribbon to the top of each of them. I finished them off with the Bottle Green Nuvo Crystal drops for that extra touch!

Friendship Card Using Mama Elephant “Little Dog Agenda” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I’m sharing with you a card I made using the Mama Elephant “Little Dog Agenda” stamp set! I love the Little Agenda sets as I feel they’re so versatile!
1
I stamped the images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured them with alcohol markers and used a white gel pen to add highlights. I wasn’t sure which of the images I wanted to use just yet, so I fussy cut a bunch of them out so I could just grab the ones I wanted when it came to assembling my card! The others can be saved for future projects.
2
I cut a panel from white card stock using the Mama Elephant “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and cut a window using the oval from Lawn Fawn’s “Shadow Box Card” dies.
3
I cut some trees from the “Shadow Box Card” dies too and coloured them using my alcohol markers.
45.jpg
I blended some “Salty Ocean” Distress Ink on to a square of white card stock larger than my window and distressed it slightly using my distress sprayer. I assembled my scene in the window first then adhered my images on top. To finish my panel I stamped my sentiment from Neat and Tangled’s “Beavers Eh” set using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I double wrapped some blue and white twine around my panel and adhered it at the back.
6.jpg
I cut a background panel from white card stock using Altenew’s “Cube Cover” die, created my card base and adhered them together using double sided tape. I popped my smaller panel up on my base using 3M Double Sided Foam Tape to finish.
