Simple Holiday Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Oh Puppy Tree” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
This week I’m sharing a simple card using Mama Elephant’s “Oh Puppy Tree” stamp set! I’m absolutely in love with this set, all of the puppies are adorable and it’s easy to mass produce simple cards with, perfect for the holiday season!
1
I started by stamping out my image on white card stock, I used my Misti stamping tool and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. With larger images it’s often difficult to get a clear, crisp image with stamping one time so the Misti comes in handy to keep your card in place while you stamp it again. I coloured my images with my alcohol markers, I added some spots to a couple of the dogs and drew around them with a black pen. I used a white gel pen to add details and highlights before fussy cutting it out.
2
I used the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from white card stock. I blended my panel with Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks and distressed it with some water. I cleaned up any excess water before splattering my panel with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink, blue metallic watercolour paint and white metallic watercolour paint and set aside to dry.
3
I secured some black card stock in my Misti and prepped it with my powder tool applicator. I stamped my sentiment using Versamark ink, coated it in Lawn Fawn’s White Embossing Powder and set it with my heat tool. Once it had cooled I trimmed it down and cut the ends in to a banner shape. I cut a black panel to frame my splattered panel using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and adhered my panels together using Scor-Tape. I popped my image and sentiment up using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered my panel to my card base.

Birthday Card Using Waffle Flower’s “Pawsome” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m taking a break from the Christmas cards this week to share a birthday card using Waffle Flower’s “Pawsome” stamp set! We’ve all forgotten a birthday or sent a card a little afterwards, so it’s always handy to have one of these cards in your stash for these occasions!
1
I placed some white card stock in my Misti stamping tool and stamped my images from the set using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them with my alcohol markers, added details with a white gel pen and fussy cut them out.
23
I cut a polaroid photo frame using Avery Elle’s “Photo Mat Elle-Ments” die set from white card stock. I used Broken China, Twisted Citron, Candied Apple and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Inks to stamp some of the smaller images from the set in a random pattern on the frame. I took another piece of white card stock and blended it with Broken China and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks, splattered it with some water and once dry I adhered my frame to the background using Scor-Tape before trimming the edges down to size.
5.jpg
I used my Misti stamping tool and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink to stamp both parts of my sentiment and trimmed them down to size. I framed my sentiments using black card stock so they would pop more on the card.
6.jpg7.jpg
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and a black panel using the largest die from the set. I cut two thin strips of black card stock and adhered them diagonally across my white panel using Scor-Tape. I covered my black lines with post-it tape while I splattered the white areas of my panel using Broken China, Twisted Citron and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide Inks and set it aside to dry. Once dry, I popped my polaroid frame, characters and sentiments up using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I framed my panel with the black panel I cut earlier and adhered to my card base using Scor-Tape.

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.

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!

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.

Sending Love With Heffy Doodle “Yappy Happy Mail” Set!

Hey lovelies!
We all love a bit of happy mail don’t we? “Just because” cards are amongst my favourites to send and this set from Heffy Doodle is just perfect to show someone you’re thinking of them!
1.jpg
I started by stamping my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured them with my alcohol markers and fussy cut them out. I used a white gel pen to add highlights and details to my images. I coloured the whole set because it was just too adorable!
2.jpg
I die cut my base panel using the Mama Elephant “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and the laced heart from Lawn Fawn “Lacy Heart Stackables” dies. I love layering die cuts on cards to add a little more dimension!
3.jpg
I blended some Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink on to my heart before splattering it with white gold metallic watercolour paint and some white paint.
4.jpg
I cut another heart using the Lacy Heart Stackables and trimmed the bottom off to make my hill to ground my images. To add a little extra detail I weaved some red and white twine through the lace around the heart.
5.jpg
I stamped my sentiment on the white part of my heart using Versafine Onyx Black ink. Once my sentiment was dry I adhered my images to my panel and used a black pen to create the little dotted line between them. I added some red and white twine around the bottom of my rectangle panel, tied a bow and adhered the bow in to place using Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive so it wouldn’t move around too much. I adhered the heart to my rectangle panel flat, backed the rectangle with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered that to my card base!

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!
