Mama Elephant – Just Wanted to Say…

Hi there! I’m back with another card from the bundle of Mama Elephant Stackable Cutie cards I made. This one was super quick to come together but it’s so adorable! I just love it!

To make this card I took some Perfectly Plaid Lawn Fawn paper and die cut it with a stitched rectangle. Then I cut the My Favorite Things Rectangle Peek-a-boo Window from that. Using the window as a guide I inked a pink shadow with my blending buddy brush, and then popped my frame and elephant up with foam tape.

Using my MISTI I stamped a speech bubble above the elephant with the same ink I used for the background. I also stamped part of a sentiment from the Trinity Stamps Hello Senti-mini set and popped it up with a foam strip. Next, I stamped the hello from the same set on the inside of the card in a light blue dye ink.

For finishing touches I added black glaze pen to the eyes, white gel pen accents and a scattering of clay hearts around.

A simple, super sweet card perfect for someone in my life!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Mama Elephant – Stackable Cuties

Hello everyone! I’m still making cards to send to friends and family for a little break in the day. I hope it’s making them smile and as fun for them as it is for me to make and send. I recently pulled out my Mama Elephant Stackable Cuties to play with and made a couple of cards with them.

When I get an inkling like this, I usually stamp and color a bunch of images and make cards afterward. Here is the first one.

To make this card, I die cut the My Favorite Things Arched Window (the next to the largest) from a white cardstock panel that measures 4×5.25. I took the window it cuts out and used my Newton’s Nook clouds stencil to ink up some sky using my Trinity Stamps blending buddy brush and a blue dye ink. Then I die cut a second arch, inked it up with green and die cut it with my grass die from the Newton’s Nook land borders dies. I adhered these together, added my critters and glued it to my card front.

Using my MISTI, I added a couple of appropriate speech bubbles from the same stamp set and then popped my frame up around the scene with foam tape.

I finished this card off with glossy accents on the noses, kitty’s fish and puppy’s bone. Then I scattered some Your Next Stamp gumdrops across the design. Very last, I added black glaze pen to the eyes and white gel pen accents to the images.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
