Just Because Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Wish Upon A Star” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
“Just because” cards are probably my favourites to make, as I tend to send cards to my loved ones quite often out of the blue to let them know I’m thinking of them. The “Wish Upon A Star” stamp set from Mama Elephant is adorable and I had to get it, especially when I saw that bunny on the moon!
1
I stamped all of the images out in my Misti using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured the three images I planned to use for my card using my alcohol markers. I added white highlights and details using a gel pen before I fussy cut them out.

I cut a small scalloped panel from white card stock using Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts. I secured it in my Misti and stamped the clouds using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink again. I coloured the clouds with my alcohol markers using the colourless blender to blend the grey ink out a little. I used Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts to cut a window towards the top of my panel.
4
I cut another panel from white card stock using the small scalloped die and blended it with Victorian Velvet and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Inks. I splattered it with some white metallic watercolour paint to give the illusion of stars. Once the paint was dry I adhered this background behind my panel with the clouds so the colour would only show behind the window. I adhered the bunny sitting on the moon flat to my panel using Scor-Tape and popped the cloud up just below him with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
5
I used the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from white card stock. I put down some pink metallic watercolour paint on to my glass craft mat, sprayed it with water and placed my card stock in to it repeatedly, being sure to dry it using my heat tool between layers. I splattered the panel with the same watercolour paint (slightly more concentrated) and set aside to dry. While the paint was drying I stamped my sentiment on a strip of white card stock using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink again and cut in to the ends to create my banner. I adhered my scalloped panel to my background panel with the watercolour paint, adhered my sentiment banner flat under the window using Scor-Tape and popped the bunny up to the side of it using foam tape. I cut one last panel from white card stock to frame my scene using the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and adhered everything to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Simple Happy New Year Cards Using Mama Elephant’s “Happy New Year Wishes” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and that 2018 treated you well, now we’re speeding towards 2019 I thought I’d share with you some simple cards I made to welcome in the new year with you all! New Year cards aren’t typically a tradition here in the UK but with Mama Elephant’s “Happy New Year Wishes” stamp set how is a girl supposed to say no?!
1.jpg
I started by making some very simple backgrounds using Distress Oxide Ink and metallic watercolour paint. I cut a panel of white card stock down to the size I needed for this, I smooshed some Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink on to my glass crafting mat and sprayed it with water. I placed my card stock down in to the ink in a random fashion and dried it after lifting it each time to get the layered effect, I repeated this process multiple times with my inks and gold metallic watercolour paint. I used Broken China Distress Oxide Ink for the blue example and I did a simple white and gold version with the leftover metallic watercolour paint that I didn’t want to waste after I had finished with my coloured panels!

I cut each of my panels using the largest die from Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts once they were all completely dry. I used my powder tool applicator over all of my panels, stamped my sentiment in the centre using Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool.

I cut some black panels from the largest of the “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts from Mama Elephant, as these are slightly larger than the dies I used for my front panel I felt they gave it a nice border with the stitched detail!
P11 ME Happy New Year Wishes
I adhered each of my panels to my card bases and finished them off with some Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops, leaving them to dry for 24 hours in a safe place undisturbed. I really love the marbled effect you can achieve with this technique!

Thanks for reading lovelies! Happy New Year for a few days time, I hope you all have fun celebrating and I’ll see you next week with another card!

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.

Sweet Love Themed Card Using Mama Elephant “Hogs and Kisses” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m back this week with some cute card inspiration that would be perfect for Valentine’s day or just to let someone know you care about them! Pigs are one of my favourite animals, so of course I had to dive straight in to the “Hogs and Kisses” set from Mama Elephant!
1.jpg2.jpg
I stamped my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, coloured them using my alcohol markers and fussy cut them out. I added some white highlights and details using a white gel pen. I cut a scalloped panel using the Mama Elephant “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts and stamped the small card in a random fashion using Iced Spruce Distress Oxide ink. I lightly blended a little Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink around the edges to give it a softer look. I used the “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts from Honey Bee Stamps to cut a section of my panel out, as this is where my sentiment and images would sit later. I coloured the hearts on the cards with a pink pencil to give a little added colour to my panel.
3
I cut another scalloped panel the same size as my first and blended Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide on to it. I used my distress sprayer to distress the panel with water and cleaned up the excess. I adhered both of my panels together and stamped my sentiment using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I popped up my images at the bottom of the circle using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered my panel to my card base!

Hip Hip Hoo-Ray! Cute Peekaboo Card Using Heffy Doodle “Hootiful” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I’m sharing this peekaboo card I made using Heffy Doodle’s “Hootiful” stamp set along with the Mama Elephant “Framed Tags” Waverly Creative Cuts! I originally had another idea for this card, but thanks to Katrina over at Bumbleberry Papercrafts’ super speedy shipping I managed to whip this up in no time!

I stamped my images using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers. I added highlights and details with my white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.

I cut a panel with a peekaboo window from white card stock using two of the Mama Elephant “Framed Tag” Waverly Creative Cuts. I blended Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink over my panel, sprayed it with my Distress Sprayer and cleaned up the excess water.
4151
I cut another of the peekaboo windows from some pink polka dot patterned paper and adhered it to the inside of the flap to give it an extra finishing touch. I cut a small rectangle from white card stock using Lawn Fawn’s Shadow Box Card Dies and prepped it with my powder tool. I stamped my sentiment from Heffy Doodle’s “Hootiful” set in Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set with my heat tool. I adhered this to the front of the peekaboo flap.

I cut a panel from white card stock, blended Broken China and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink over it to create my sky. I splattered it with white watercolour paint to give it the starry effect.
7
I cut some hills freehand from white card stock and blended Mowed Lawn Distress Ink on to them before adhering them to my background. I decided on placement for my images and adhered everything down. I created my card base by cutting two of the scalloped panels, I scored the back one and adhered the top to the other, I adhered the front panel on to the card base I created to finish.
