Mama Elephant-August Stampede

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop!
Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!

My card features the new Heartfelt Wishes stamp set along with the coordinating dies.
Mama Elephant-Heartfelt WishesTo create my background I stamped and embossed in clear the triangles from the Today Was stamp set. Then I colored the triangles with my Zig Clear Color markers. I layered up the die cut sentiment and embossed the coordinating sentiment in white. To finish it off, I added some loose metallic thread and glossy accents.

  5. Great card. Love the colorful back ground. And the raised sentiment and the embossed sentiment really set this card off. Beautiful design.

  8. Oh, Laura! I love that card! The coloring is perfect. I also love the effect of layering die cuts. So impressive. I need to get my threads out to embellish my cards. Very subtle, but effective. Love it!

  9. your talent to look at a stamp like that, which I love…but then do something totally unique with it, the embossed diamonds is what I am referring to…Love all you do. Barb

  10. The randomly colored triangles and pearlized ones make this card stand out–along with the white outline of the “thanks.”

  15. I’m a sucker for geometric shapes and your cards are always lovely – put ’em together and you’ve got a winner!

  16. Eeeeeee!!! What a stunning and attractive and creative card! I L-O-V-E those tiny triangles of colors sprinkled on the face of the card. The sentiment, while I still can’t figure out exactly how you did that, is spot on and the thread and sequins add just the right touch. Your creations are so balanced I often stare at them for a long time trying to commit them to my memory so I can try some of your techniques. You are brilliant! Thanks for sharing your creations w/us!

  17. I never cease to be amazed at the wonderful cards you create. Can’t believe all the shading on all those little triangles.. great job!

  21. This is beautiful. Your cards and your personality in your videos are very inspirational. I like your style a lot. Thank you for sharing. This card really caught my eye with those lovely colored tucked in the triangles. Thank you for sharing!

  22. I love the extra bits that you add to your cards that just finish them off so perfectly. The little bit of dropped, wound, metallic thread, those lovely shiny drops of glossy accents/liquid glass/Ranger glossy medium. You are such an inspiration. Thank you so much for sharing.

  23. I’ve followed your blog for a long time, but I’m guilty of never commenting. I wanted to say that your blog is one of my favorites! I love all the color you use and the clean lines of your cards. Thanks for sharing your talent with all of us in blog-land!
