Mama Elephant~Confetti

Hello friends! Today I’m up on the Mama Elephant blog sharing a project using the new Confetti stamp set.Mama Elephant~ConfettiI used my Envelope Punch Board to create this little envelope using Echo Park pattern paper. The stamps in the Confetti stamp set are perfect for the front and back of envelopes. I used the tiny sequins to dress up the front of the envelope and the solid circle love sentiment to make a sticker for the back.Β The envelope measures 2 x 3 1/2″. On the envelope punch board, it’s the first measurement and says “gift card” and requires a 5 x 5″ piece of paper.

Mama Elephant~ConfettiHere’s a video, with my trusty side-kick Emma, showing how I created this project. Thanks so much for watching!

  1. can you please tell me the measurements you used for the envelope and card? I’m sorry if you mentioned it in the video ( I’m deaf) so I’m only watching what you do and same time keeping Little E entertained πŸ™‚ Thanks!

  2. I love that technique and the great idea to create a sticker with the xyron to close the make-your-own envelopes!

  3. I am so glad you made a video of how you made this card. I don’t know what that technique is called either but I love the result. I am going to give it a try for some Christmas gift cards this year.

  4. Love the technique…….you’ll have to come up with a name for it or……..we can call it the “Laura” technique πŸ™‚ I noticed you have the same problem with the smaller envelopes. I have gone back and cut the back flap on mine and then put a sticked to seal it……sticks much better that way. Thanks for sharing. Ciao πŸ™‚

  5. Very cute technique! I love that you include your family in your videos. I did see the one with your crazy husband, he’s a peach to get involved with you, and you have an adorable little Emma.

  6. I love how you created this gift card and envie, Laura! Your stamping technique is so clever, too! I like Barb’s idea to call it “Paper-Pieced Stamping”…just a thought!
    Hugs to Emma ~ The prettiest little side-kick on the web!!!

  7. This video is so adorable! The little card and technique you used are amazing! But the most impressive part is your “super mom multi-tasking” skills throughout your video. Love watching you create and how you make your videos a full family affair πŸ™‚ Hope your little gift card creation survived Emma peeling the sticker off the back. πŸ™‚

  8. Great card/envelope and fun video! How about calling it “hidden double-stamping”? The stamped sequins look like a great embellishment.

  9. Adorable and hilarious at the same time!! BTW agree with some other suggestions of ‘paper pieced stamping’. πŸ™‚

  10. I love today’s project and the technique. I have no brilliant ideas regarding what to call it–but I see a Make it Monday video in your future. Your video is so sweet, and Emma is just darling.

  11. Oh, How I love to watch you balance your mom life with your creative life! Your interactions with Emma always make me smile. The technique (and gift card with envelope) is really cool, I will have to try it!

  12. Your videos always make you laugh…..reminds me of my life when I am trying to make cards! Frustrating and fun all at the same time. Love the technique….reminds me of a technique I saw in our “Australian Simply Cards” magazine called “triple stamping”….yours would be “double” stamping. Take care, Tracy

  13. So many levels of awesome… and your Emma is just like my Josie. My Emma loves to make her own pretend YouTube videos, I should let her help me make one and get over my fear – it’s fun to see your family in your videos!

  14. First I have to say your daughter is sooooooo cute! It’s wonderful that you have her be a part of your stamping. It’s not easy with a little one. Second- I LOVE your STRIP STAMPING. That’s what I would call it. πŸ˜‰
