Mama Elephant - Carried Away

Hey folks!

I thought I stop in today and share some cards that I have made. Graduation is just around the corner and I thought these would be great to give to some Soon-To-Be Grads I know!

I adore Mama Elephant folks. I really do. So I had to use the Mama Elephant Carried Away Stamp Set. I can't stand the cuteness.


The first thing I did was die cut a few pieces of Neenah White Cardstock with the new Simon Says Stamp Birthday Wishes Frame Die. I carefully trimmed out the words Birthday Wishes, just leaving the frame.

To decide where I would stamp my images from the Mama Elephant Carried Away Stamp Set, I placed my die cut frames on a Neenah White Cardstock panel and lightly traced the inside of the frame with a pencil.

Then, I put the panel in my MISTI Stamping Tool and placed the stamps where I wanted them inside the lines. I didn't worry too much about the kiddo's sticking out passed the frame, but I made sure to mask off the corner of the balloon with a piece of Post-It Tape. I made some masks for the images with the Post-It Tape as well.

Since I was going to color these cutie patutie's with Copic's (see colors below), I used Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.


Using an Ranger Ink Mini Blending Tool, I added Simon Says Stamp Inks in Audrey Blue, Surf Blue and Sea Glass on one of the frames as well as a full panel. After blending the ink onto the full panel, I die cut it with a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die.

I attached the fames on each of the panels with Scotch Mounting Tape. You could also use the same Birthday Wishes Frame Die and die cut some Fun Foam.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Diagonal Stripe Background Stamp and Simon Says Stamp Slate Ink on the Neenah White Cardstock card bases. Before attaching all of the pieces to the front I stamped the sentiments on the frames with Versafine Onyx Black Ink.


To finish off the cards, I added Clear Wink of Stella to the Images and added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew and and Gloss White from So Suzy Stamps.

That's it! Easy peasy. As always, thanks so much for stopping in to see me today. I hope you enjoyed my cards!

Until next time!

Making An Easy One Layered Card - Featuring Avery Elle and Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

I'm back today to share a super easy and super fast one layered card with you all!

It's no secret that I love to mask and build up the images on a card. However, sometimes it's great to skip the masking and get the same effect. That's what I've done on my card today folks.

I'm a sucker for butterflies and if you make them rainbow and I will clap my hands like a demented seal. For real. So today I used the Butterflies Stamp Set by Avery Elle and did some basic Copic Coloring (color choices in thumbnail links below) in a rainbow color scheme.

On Neenah White Cardstock, I stamped my images in Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink with my MISTI Stamping Tool. You don't need a MISTI, but I'm a manic and it's almost impossible for me to line up my stamps again with a…

The stamp set I used today is Ah-mazing! It's the Hello Lovely Stamp Set by Concord & 9th and I'm tellin ya folks, if you're looking for something that has a whole lotta wow factor AND is easy, this is your stamp set.

Using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped my Neenah White Cardstock Panel with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink.

There are some really groovy stamps in the set if you wanted to just ink them up and stamp them within the outline image, but I LOVED the idea of coloring this bad boy in.
