Mama Elephant-Tandem Ride

Hi there! Today I’m joining Mama Elephant as we begin highlighting the July release. Today we are featuring the adorable new Tandem Ride stamp set with coordinating dies.Mama Elephant-Tandem RideI combined the Tandem Ride stamps & dies with Tandem Extras. I also added some Sunshine & Orangeade ink blending in the bottom right corner. These images are seriously too cute for words. I thought it would be fun to crop the bicycle off to the right side of the card for an unexpected design.

They are fresh, fun and sure to make you smile when you hear the names.SSS-Painted HelloMy card showcases several of the new delicious ink colors. I masked off some striped using post-it tape and then blended in the ink to create this fun rainbow panel.

Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!


My card features the new Friend Indeed stamp set.
Mama Elephant-Friend in MeI drew a line using the curved arch die from Borderlines Trio as a guide and then added some cute little critters from Tandem Ride & Just Hatched. I masked the critters, blended in some subtle ink using Fresh Mint & Ocean and then removed the masks to color the images with Copics. How adorable are these little dudes on a wire. They just make me smile. I love the big hand written look of that “friend” sentiment, too.
