Mama Elephant Thank You Card!

  Hi crafty friends! Sophie here and I'm so happy to share this fun slimline thank you card with you today! To create this card I used the Mama Elephant Slim Card Basics die set to cut out the scalloped panel from Kraft cardstock and then also the stitched panel from white cardstock. I used the Lawn Fawn Grassy Hillside Stencil and Lawn Fawn Jalapeño ink to create the grass, and I used the Lawn Fawn Cloudy Stencil with Kiddie Pool ink for the sky.  I used my Copic markers to color in the cute little images from Mama Elephant's Zodiac Ox set and finished off the card with some wood veneer stars and the punny sentiment! :) I hope you like this card and I can't wait to show you the Halloween projects I've been working on so soon! Big crafty hugs!

Boo Halloween Critter Card

Hi everyone! Tina here with a fun little Halloween critter card featuring images from the adorable Hello Bluebird Spooky Spellers stamps . To create this card I stamped and heat embossed the images and colored them using Copic markers. I cut them out using my Scan n' Cut but there are Spooky Spellers coordinating dies that you can use as well. For the night sky blended background I used distress inks in Spiced Marmalade, Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord, Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot. I splattered it with some water, glimmer mist and white paint and adhered some small star sequins from my stash.  The black tree frame is from the Hello Bluebird Winter Woods Overlay Die . And last but not least I embellished with glittered bat diecuts from Jaded Blossom.  Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great day :)
  Hi Friends!  I'm sharing this pretty fall card using inspiration from the September mood board.  This card uses products from Pretty Pink Posh which can be purchased at the Butterfly Reflections Ink store.   To start, I ink blended a background by using an oval stencil and some distress oxide inks.   Chipped sapphire , faded jeans and rusty hinge inks used from top to bottom.  Next, I splattered the background with some gold ink.  Then, I die cut images from the small stitched foliage dies and ink blended the leaves pink (spun sugar and picked raspberry) and pumpkins orange (crackling campfire and mustard seed).   The image of the cat was stamped from pumpkin patch critters and colored using copics.  I cut the image using the coordinating dies .  The images were then glued to the background.  For the sentiment, I used the "welcome" from the welcome little one die set  and stacked it three times to create dimension.  Next, I used the stamp from giving thanks for the

Aim for the Clouds

 Hello, everyone! Allison here, and  I am back today with a fun take on a shaker card. It’s called an “infinity” shaker card. That’s what I’ve seen it called in several places, anyway, so we’re going to stick with it! The fun thing about an infinity shaker card, aside from its name, is that it makes your entire card panel into a shaker. It’s also super easy and quick to make. I used a fun assortment of goodies from MFT for this card, all of which can be found in the Butterfly Reflections, Ink store . I started today’s card with this incredibly adorable dragon from the  Magical Friends set. I want to be that girl flying in the air, don’t you? I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink since I was going to use my Copic markers. There are so many fun color combinations for this dragon, but I went with my favorite color, turquoise. And the purple is for my son because he says I never use purple on cards. This is actually the second purple dragon I've made this week - did I mention he

Here are the steps:  Step 1: Stamp all the images from Mama Elephant Boba Tea and Donut Treats using Memento Black Ink Pad. Step 2: Color each image using Copic Markers.

Let it Snow! ❄️

  Hi friends!! Sophie here and I'm SO excited to share this simple slimline card that I made using some fun new products from Mama Elephant!  To create this card I used the new Mama Elephant Slim Woodland Creative Cuts  and cut it from white cardstock. I added some detail to the snowbanks and the trees (it's hard to see on the photos, but easy to see in real life!) with Copic markers in BG0000 and E40.  The cutie little fox images are from the new Mama Elephant Little Fox Agenda set  and the sentiment is from the coordinating die set for Let it Snow !  To color the foxes I used Copic markers in E13, E15, R00, E50, R24, R27, and YG63! :)  I hope you enjoyed my card today!! I just received my order from Vanessa with all of the new Mama Elephant goodies and I can't wait to create more cards to share with you all! I hope you have a wonderful day!


Hi everyone! Tina here and I've got a Howl-o-ween card to share featuring this adorable Pug-Kin stamp from Newton's Nook.  I paired it with the fun Spiderweb Stencil for my background.  I made the background by stamping my Versamark pad over the stencil and heat embossing it with some holographic embossing powder from my stash. It's hard to see in the pics but it is super sparkly. Using my mini distress inks I blended out a spooky Halloween background. I stamped, embossed and colored up the adorable pug and jack-o-lantern using Copics. I cut him out using my Scan n' Cut but you can use the Pug-kin coordinating dies .  I die cut the layers of grass using black cardstock and the My Favorite Things Grassy Hills Die-Namics.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Happy Howloween onto a banner from the My Favorite Things Blueprints 27. Finally I added a dangling spider diecut from My Creative Time. Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you like my card. H

Peek-a-Boo! Thinking of You! Card and Pocketfold

  Hello and a Happy Monday to you!  I'm starting the week off right with this fun card and DIY pocketfold! Have you ever created a pocketfold?  I made a template that I made a while back that helps me remember the measurements and where to score and fold. Once I have my pocketfold ready, I can use the Heffy Doodle UnbeLEAFable Stencil and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide to decorate it! Now, I'm going to stamp my A very Elle Peek-a-Boo Pals with Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink and then color my images with Copic markers. I'm going to lay my images out so that they're peeking over the pocketfold.  I am using 3D foam strips to adhere their little paws so that they're hanging over the pocketfold. I'm also going to use some Heffy Doodle Memo Tape to mask off part of the card so that I can create a green triangle in the bottom right part of the card. I'm going to use a Dress My Craft Border Punch and Catherine Pooler Coral Cabana ink to create a border for my tr
