Simple Friendship Card Using Mama Elephant’s “My Pet Puppies” Stamp Set!

Hello lovelies!
Today I’m sharing a friendship card using the “My Pet Puppies” stamp set from Mama Elephant!
1
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp my images using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them with my alcohol markers and added some highlights and details with a white gel pen.
234
I die cut a panel from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I cut a panel using the same die from some watercolour paper and die cut a circle in the centre using Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts, this will act as a stencil to get the circle on my white panel. I layered the “Stained Glass” stencil from Honey Bee Stamps over my circle stencil I made and blended on to my white panel using Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks using the “Life Changing Blender Brushes” from Picket Fence Studios. After removing my stencils I splattered my panel with blue and green metallic watercolour paints, once that was dry I popped my images up at the bottom of my circle using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape.
56
I used my Misti once again to stamp my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink, trimmed it down to size and popped it up on my panel with foam tape before adhering my entire panel to my card base.

Birthday Card Using MFTS Stamps “Picture Perfect Party Animals” Stamp Set!

Hello crafty friends!
It’s been a while since I’ve posted or had the chance to craft, so I’m happy to be back! How have you all been? I hope you’re all well!
I’m jumping back in this week with a birthday card made with MFT stamps, the “Picture Perfect Party Animals” stamp set is adorable, I couldn’t resist these parrots being the crazy bird lady I am!
1
I secured some white Neenah card stock in my Misti stamping tool and stamped the parrot image using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured the image using alcohol markers, adding highlights with a white gel pen and some markings around the parrots’ eyes using a pencil. I used my trimmer to trim out the box for crisp straight lines.
2
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and used the largest from the die set to cut a panel from black card stock. I cut a third panel using Waffle Flower’s “Nesting Postage” die set. I used the Heffy Doodle “UnbeLEAFable” stencil with Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks to create my patterned panel, which I finished up with some metallic paint splatter. I blended my white rectangle panel with the same two inks I used for my patterned panel, I used the Picket Fence Studio “Life Changing” Blender Brushes for all of my blending. I adhered my black and smooth blended panels together using Scor-Tape, popped up my patterned panel in the centre using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and popped up my image also.
34
For my sentiment I took a piece of card stock I had left over from cutting my panels out earlier, secured it in my Misti and stamped using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black Ink. I adhered it to some black card stock using Scor-Tape and trimmed it down to size so I have a thin border all the way around. I popped it up below my image 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.

Two Cards Using Avery Elle’s “Sweetest” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I thought I’d share two cards I made using Avery Elle’s “Sweetest” stamp set! As we had a bit of a heat wave recently I thought it would be fun to play around with these cute ice lollies and ice cream images!
First Card:
1
I stamped two of the ice cream images out using my Misti with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured them with my alcohol markers, I added highlights and details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out.
2.jpg3.jpg4
I cut two panels from white card stock using the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I used Heffy Doodle’s “Candy Store” stencil with Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks to create my front panel. I blended the second panel with Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink and sprayed it with my distress sprayer. I used one of the dies from Lawn Fawn’s “Lacy Heart Stackables” to create my window in my blue and white panel.
56
I used one of the dies from Lawn Fawn’s “Shadow Box Card” die set to cut my sentiment panel, running the top of it through again to partially die cut it to size. I secured it in my Misti and stamped my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I adhered my panels together with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape before popping my images and sentiment up with foam tape also. I cut a panel from black card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and adhered my front panel to it and then to my card base using Scor-Tape. I added some light blue Nuvo drops for embellishment.
P42 AE Sweetest (1)
Second Card:
78910.jpg
I cut a panel 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 ice lollies in a pattern going across the top of the panel and masked them with masking paper. I blended the edges of the panel using Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and the centre with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink to give it an ombre effect. I distressed the panel with some water, once it was dry I peeled off the masks. I cut away a section of the panel, keeping the bottom part of it. I coloured my images and added highlights with a white gel pen. I cut another panel from white card stock using the same die and blended it with Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink before distressing that also. I lined up where I wanted my sentiment to be on the orange panel, secured it in my Misti and stamped it with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I wrapped some blue and white twine around my bottom blue panel before adhering both of the blue panels to my orange panel with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I framed it with a panel cut from black card stock like in the previous card and adhered to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Simple Card Using Heffy Doodle’s “You’re Weird” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
This week I’m sharing a simple appreciation card using Heffy Doodle’s “You’re Weird” stamp set! I’ve always been obsessed with the moon and the opportunity to line up the stamps to make a full moon with this set drew me in!
16.jpg
I used my Misti to stamp the first half of the moon with Gina K Amalgam Jet Black ink, cleaned off my stamp and lined it up so that the edges met and stamped the other half. I shaded my moon with a regular drawing pencil and set it with a little hairspray to stop it from smudging. I added some white highlights with a gel pen before fussy cutting it out. I used my Misti again to stamp my sentiment using the same ink as before.
234.jpg
I cut a panel from white card stock using the second largest die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and blended Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink over it. I spread some blue metallic watercolour paint over my glass crafting mat and sprayed it with some water to allow more movement. I placed my panel down on to the watercolour paint and dried between each layer until I was happy with how it looked. I splattered some white metallic watercolour paint over the top to give the illusion of stars.
5
Here is a close up of how the panel looks when the light hits the metallic paint. I set the panel aside to dry.
7.jpg8.jpg
I cut a panel from black card stock this time using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. I doubled up some 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape to pop my moon up on my galaxy panel and adhered my panels together and to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Just Because Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Little Panda Agenda” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m a little late with my post this week, my apologies! However I’m here today to share this card using Mama Elephant’s “Little Panda Agenda” stamp set with you all!
1.jpg2.jpg
I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp out the entire set of adorable pandas using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I coloured them with my alcohol markers, added some highlights and details using a white gel pen and fussy cut them out. I cut two panels from white card stock using Mama Elephant’s “Framed Tags Waverly” Creative Cuts and used Heffy Doodle’s “UnbeLEAFable” stencil to ink blend my larger panel with Pine Needles Distress Oxide Ink. I splattered my larger panel with gold metallic watercolour paint and set it aside to dry. I used the window die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative cuts to create my window in my smaller panel.
34.jpg
I chose my sentiment from Mama Elephant’s “Dragon Wishes” stamp set and stamped it below my window using my Misti and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I doubled up my 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape for more height, adhered my smaller panel to my larger panel first then adhered all of my pandas in to place. I used Scor-Tape to adhere my panel to my card base.

Halloween Card Using Mama Elephant’s “Little Boo Agenda” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
I’m a sucker for all things Halloween, it’s my favourite holiday out of them all! So this year I’m getting ready for it a little early with Mama Elephant’s “Little Boo Agenda” stamp set!
23
I used my Misti to stamp out the entire set (twice! I don’t joke around when it comes to Halloween!) 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 and fussy cut them out. I chose the three ghosts I wanted to use for this card and set the rest aside for other projects.
14
I used Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from white card stock (I also used the largest of these dies to cut a black base panel which you’ll see later) and Honey Bee Stamps’ “Double Stitched Circles” Honey Cuts to cut out three small circles. I stamped one of the small candies from the set in a random pattern on each of the circles with Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink and coloured them purple and green with my alcohol markers.
67
I splattered my white panel using Twisted Citron, Dusty Concord and Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks. Once the panel was dry I used a smaller die from Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut out the centre of my splattered panel and a white panel. I adhered my splattered frame on to my black panel and inlaid my white panel using Scor-Tape. I placed my three circles down the centre to guide where I wanted my sentiments to be each time and used my Misti to stamp them one by one.
58
I popped each ghost up on the circles using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape, I also used the foam tape to place my circles down the centre of my panel and adhered my panel to my card base using Scor-Tape.

Birthday Card Using Avery Elle’s “Legendary” Stamp Set!

Hey lovelies!
Today I wanted to share a quick birthday card using Avery Elle’s “Legendary” stamp set!

I started by cutting two white panels using the largest and second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts. In the smaller panel I used part of the die from Avery Elle’s “Focal Point Stripes” Elle-Ments to cut my striped window. I blended another piece of white card stock big enough to cover the back of my window with Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Inks, distressed it with my distress sprayer and adhered to my panel using Scor-Tape. 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 details with a white gel pen before fussy cutting them out and adhering them in place on my smaller panel. I secured my panel in my Misti and stamped my sentiment using Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I blended my larger panel with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink, popped my smaller panel up on it using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape and adhered it to my card base.

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.
23.jpg
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.
