Mama Elephant

Featuring Mama Elephant products

Warm hugs and yellow blossoms

Hi Everyone!

Here I am with my last post of today. This time I’m playing along with the current sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.

I decided to use the beautiful Mama Elephant Pine and Posy set again. I coloured the images with my Twinkling H2Os and then die cut them with the coordinating dies. I lightly splattered gold paint across the background before adhering the images and stamping a Mama Elephant sentiment to complete my card.

Merry Everything, Mama Elephant!

Hello friends!

Did you all see the amazing Mama Elephant release a few weeks ago? So many beautiful sets. I fell in love with the Pine and Posy set and snapped it up as soon as I could!

I’ve been wanting to ink it up ever since and know exactly what I wanted to try when I saw the beautiful colour palette from the Color Throwdown Challenge this week – cobalt blue, aqua, grey and black.

I coloured the image with my Twinkling H2Os and added a sentiment stamp and die, also by Mama Elephant.

Peony Bowl

Hello friends!

I’ve had this gorgeous Peony stamp set from the Ton since March but I’d been waiting to use it because I wanted to spend my time colouring such a beautiful image. Today was the day! I used my new Daniel Smith watercolours and got to work with the current colour palette from the Color Throwdown Challenge – red, yellow, brown and green.

When I finished colouring, I didn’t feel that I had used enough yellow so I smooshed some Mustard Seed distress ink on my base card – yellow is definitely more visible now!

I didn’t want the sentiment to detract from the beautiful image so added a small Mama Elephant sentiment stamped onto a punched tag to complete my card.

Hello lovely whittle cat!

Hi Everyone!

Well its been quite the stressful weekend with various house/garden issues; the atmosphere has not been conducive to creating. But I finally managed to make a card against all the odds today!

I’m playing along with a new-to-me challenge, the Global Design Project, which has a CASE the designer challenge this week. I loved the rustic feel of the inspiration card by Janneke de Jong and the design was fabulous. I’m so glad that it helped me get down to creating!

I used the cute Whittle Cat die from Poppystamps plus a couple of butterfly dies from Simon Says Stamp and Memory Box. The sentiment is by Mama Elephant and the embossing folder is by Taylored Expressions.

Christmas in July – Day 9

Hello everyone!

Christmas in July Day 9 (Day 25 of the colouring challenge)! Who remembers Elzybells? A UK designer who created the cutest stamps maybe a decade ago? I have a few of the wood-mounted stamps including this cute festive image which I coloured with the combo for the current CAS on Friday challenge.

The sentiment is by Mama Elephant.

Framed Gerbera Daisies

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing a long with the current CAS Colours & Sketches challenge, which is a colour challenge.

I decided to use two of my newest crafty products, the gorgeous Gerbera Daisy background die from Simon Says Stamp and the Nesting Wood frame die from Hero Arts.

First, I die cut the frame three times and adhered them together to create a 3D frame. Then I coloured the daisies using my Twinkling H2O paints – it’s so shimmery in real life! I cut a panel, stuck it to my card base and adhered the frame on top.

Rather than try to match up the leaves with some coloured cardstock, I painted a couple of layers of the Twinkling H2O paint onto white cardstock and then die cut it with a Mama Elephant die.

I’m also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge – anything goes!

Thanks for stopping by!
