Hi there! Today I’m just sharing a couple of projects that were featured a while ago on the Waffle Flower blog.How cute are the Heart Rosettes? I used several papers from the Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party 6×6 pad and a sentiment from the Congrats stamp set.
And here’s one other card I made using that cutie patootie little Tiny Wings die.
I die cut the butterfly using several little bits of scrap paper and stitched them on the card in rows.
Here’s a video to show you how I made these cards.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hello! Today I have a video to share with you showing how I created both of these Mama Elephant June release projects.Both of these cards use layers of masking. This is a great way to achieve perspective while keeping it a one-layer wonder.
Here’s a video showing all my fancy schmancy masking secrets:)
Anyone feel like giving this masking a try? How about a giveaway to give you a kick start? Leave me a comment for your chance to win this awesome new Sunday Stroll stamp set, my favorite pair of tweezers and a pack a full sticky post-it notes.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

I’ve used the new Flowers 2 Dies on my project and also one of the leafy dies from the new Foliage 1 dies. I had to cut four foliage die cuts and two of them were flipped over, showing the not-so-smooth side of the die cut so that I could get the mirror image and create a circular frame for my banner sentiment. Times like these call for a new, perfectly smooth cutting plate, which I didn’t have. I think next time I’m gonna buy extra cutting plates just to keep a couple nice, smooth ones for situations like these.I created a custom curvy banner using one of the Borders 1 dies along with a sentiment from the new Best Buds stamp set.
Thanks so much for hopping by!
Hello! I have another Mama Elephant project to share with you using the new Chance of Rain stamp set. This is such an adorable set. I love anything that includes an umbrella.I stamped the two little girls holding the umbrella together, colored them with Copics and then trimmed it all out using my scissors & craft knife. Then I added some ink blending behind using Fresh Mint and stamped the raindrops using the same ink color.

Hi there! Joining Mama Elephant again as we highlight the new Charmed stamp set with coordinating dies.I die cut a circle window using one of my nesting circle dies into some pattern paper that I have from an old Studio Calico card kit. Then I used the adorable owl, wreath & sentiment banner from Charmed along with the coordinating dies. I colored the images with Copics and popped everything up with foam tape. How cute is this sweet little owl?

Hi there! I’m back with Mama Elephant highlighting the new Sunday Sentiments stamp set.I stamped and masked off the bottom of the “hello friend” sentiment. Then I stamped and masked one of the little girls from In My heart. While everything was masked, I blended in Ocean & Lemongrass ink. Then I removed the masks, colored in the girl with Copics and then danced a gig because this looked so cool. I get abnormally excited over one-layer wonders.
Check out the Mama Elephant blog to see more inspiration using Sunday Sentiments. Thanks for looking!
