Mama Elephant-Mini Messages

Hello! Today I’m joining Mama Elephant to highlight the new Mini Messages stamp set as well as the Mini Tags creative cuts. I made a gift card envelope using the new Lucky Envelope creative cut. These little Mini Tags & Mini Messages are the perfect size for small envelopes like these.Mama Elephant-Lucky Envelop, Mini Messages & Mini TagsI used several Mama Elephant pigment inks, some ink blenders & post-it tape to create a plaid pattern on my envelope. I masked off each stripe to blend the ink. You could easily stop after inking them all up in the one direction and have gorgeous stripes, but of course I couldn’t stop there. I’m crazy for my plaids, you know.
Mama Elephant-Lucky Envelop, Mini Messages & Mini TagsI know I’ve said it before, but these pigment inks really do blend like butter or buttah….however you wanna say it:)Mama Elephant-Lucky Envelop, Mini Messages & Mini TagsYou can see what the back of the envelope looks like below. There’s a little slit for the front flap to tuck into. Such a fun way to customize a small gift and make it really special.Mama Elephant-Lucky Envelop, Mini Messages & Mini TagsCheck out the Mama Elephant blog to see more inspiration using these new products.

Mama Elephant-Lunar Extras

Hi there! I’m back with Mama Elephant to highlight the new Lunar Extras stamp set with coordinating dies.Mama Elephant-Lunar ExtrasThis is a smaller 3.5 x 5″ size card, which I thought fit the images nicely. I blended in some Vintage Photo & Antique Linen distress ink around the sides and then splattered a bit of water & Gold Lame color shine. I was trying to go for the Lunar New Year feel and stay clean & simple at the same time.
Mama Elephant-Lunar ExtrasI stamped & colored the images with Copics and then added a few Just Peachy sequins for a bit more detail. Check out the Mama Elephant blog to see more projects using this new Lunar Extras stamp set. Thanks so much for stopping by!
