Mama Elephant-Charmed

Hi there! Joining Mama Elephant again as we highlight the new Charmed stamp set with coordinating dies.Mama Elephant-CharmedI 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?

Mama Elephant~Sunday Sentiments

Hi there! I’m back with Mama Elephant highlighting the new Sunday Sentiments stamp set.Mama Elephant~Sunday SentimentsI 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.

Mama Elephant-Sunday Stroll

Hello! I’m back with Mama Elephant as we highlight the new Sunday Stroll stamp set.Mama Elephant-Sunday StrollI stamped & masked each image as I went so that it would look like the animals were in front of one another giving perspective. When they were all masked, I added the hill by using my multiliner pen and a piece of cardstock that was die cut using one of the Landscape trio dies as a guide and then added some ink blending for the sky & grass. After removing the masks, I colored everything with Copics. Finally I added a sentiment from the Sunday Sentiments.
Mama Elephant-Sunday StrollThis is why I love Mama Elephant. The images always make me smile, especially this little girl trying to take two ducks, a dog & a cat for a walk. First of all, have you ever tried to take a cat for a walk? Unless you a the cat whisperer, I don’t think it’s gonna fly, lol. Check out the Mama Elephant blog to see more inspiration using this fun new set. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Mama Elephant-Sunday Stroll I used the new Sunday Stroll & Sunday Sentiments on my card. I masked the images to blend in the background color and colored the images with Copics. This card is going to someone very special today. My hubby & I are celebrating our 19th anniversary. Holy smokes! How did that happen? I do have to say, though, that he would probably be the one with the cat on the leash instead of the dog. He’s more of a cat lover, lol.Mama Elephant-Sunday StrollNow let’s get on with the Stampede with our amazing designers!

PTI-June Release in Review

Hello again! I’m back with Papertrey Ink to share the remainder of my June release projects with you.PTI-Bloomers & ScriptedThis first card features the new Bloomers stamp set along with the Scripted stamps & dies.
PTI-Bloomers & ScriptedLook at these Scripted word dies. I mean seriously…they are gorgeous. I stacked them up about three layers with Tropical Teal.
PTI-Bloomers & Keep It Simple: Praying For YouInside the card I stamped a sentiment from the Keep It Simple: Praying For You set along with a few more blooms.
PTI-Stacked StatementsThis next card features the Stacked Statements. I created a circle mask and blended some Hawaiian shores around the outside of the circle. Then I framed the sentiment using Embellished Elegance.
PTI-Stacked StatementsThis next card features the Petite Places: Happy Camper.
PTI-Petite Places: Happy CamperThis is so darn cute! I can’t wait to make a dome topper using this set. I have been pumping out the mason jar gifts lately using all of these fabulous dome topper sets by Betsy. I just adore them so much, and everyone I ever give one to is absolutely flabbergasted. My brother is like, “Papertrey again, Laura?” and I’m like, “You got it, red rider.”
PTI-Petite Places: Happy CamperNext up is the gorgeous Make It Market Mini Kit- Still Life: Summer.
PTI-Make It Market Mini Kit- Still Life: SummerI did lots of rock n’ roll inking on these beautiful fruits. That pattern paper that comes in the kit is so lovely. I added a little strip of polka dotted washi along the side along with an embossed sentiment from Wet Paint.
PTI-Make It Market Mini Kit- Still Life: SummerAnd this last card features the Caution: Another Year Older & Good Times stamps and dies.
PTI-Good Times & Caution: Another Year OlderI stamped the rows of border sentiments and then die cut the celebrate & stars using Luxe Gold paper.
PTI-Good Times & Caution: Another Year OlderMake sure and see what the rest of these talented ladies have created using the June release.
