Mama Elephant-Incoming Mail

Hello there! Today Mama Elephant is highlighting the fun new Incoming Mail stamp set along with coordinating dies.Mama Elephant-Incoming Mail
I used the dies to partially die cut the panda and mailbox so that it remained intact to the bottom panel. After coloring the images with Copics, I popped up the bottom panel. For the background I blended in Abandoned Coral with some water flicks. These cute pandas…they always get me.Mama Elephant-Incoming MailCheck out the Mama Elephant blog to see more projects featuring this fun new Incoming Mail stamp set. Thanks for looking!

Also wanted to announce the winner from my MISTI May-nia giveaway….
congrats Katie Palmer!! 

Neat & Tangled-Awesome

releaseweek-01Hi there! I’m back with Neat & Tangled highlighting the fun new Awesome stamp set & dies. All new products will be available on Friday, May 20th at 8am EST.

For my background I masked off some “rays” using post-it tape and blending in distress inks followed by some water flicks. I overlapped the rays to get those wonderful darker shades.Neat & Tangled-AwesomeI just love this Awesome die and the coordinating sentiments that can go with it. It’s clean, modern and well, it’s awesome:)

releaseweek-01Hello there! Today I’m joining Neat & Tangled as we begin showcasing the new May release.Neat & Tangled-Pixelated
My project features several of the fun new Pixelated products: Pixelated Sentiments, Pixelated Faces & Pixelated Circle. All new products will be available on Friday, May 20th at 8am EST.

The inside of my card shows the pop-up feature of the Pixelated Circle die. My kids were all over these pixelated emoji faces! I blended a little ink along the sides of the shapes to give them more interest.Neat & Tangled-Pixelated
I couldn’t resist making a little GIF to show how the card looks opening & closing.
