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.

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

Hey lovelies!
This week I wanted to share this card I made using Mama Elephant’s “Little Monkey Agenda” stamp set.
1
I stamped the entire set out using my Misti stamping tool and Gina K’s Amalgam Jet Black ink. I used my alcohol markers to colour them, a white gel pen to add highlights and details before fussy cutting them out.

I used the second largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts to cut a panel from white card stock. I used the “Embroidered Hello” die from Lawn fawn to cut the holes I needed for my sentiment and the window die from the “Basic Rectangles” for my window. I stitched the hello with some blue and white twine, making sure the twine was secure on the back of the panel.

I cut a panel from white card stock using the largest of Mama Elephant’s “Basic Rectangles” Creative Cuts and blended it with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink. I distressed the panel with my distress sprayer and cleaned up the excess water. I popped my white panel up in the centre of my blue panel using 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam Tape. I doubled up some foam tape to adhere the monkeys I had chosen for this card in to my square windows and adhered my panel to my card base using Scor-Tape. I added some light blue Nuvo drops for embellishment.

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.

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.

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!
1
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:

I changed up the background colour each time to give them a slightly different feel!
