SSS-April Card Kit

aprilkitfull15Hi there! Today I’m sharing a couple of project created using the Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit.SSS-April Card KitI’m loving this month’s kit with the neon rub-ons, gold & kraft pattern papers and awesomely graphic & bold stamp set. For this card I simply stamped a row of neon candles and cropped it in the middle for the sentiment.
SSS-April Card KitThis next card uses the balloon image in the stamp set along with more neon inks. As far as I’m concerned, neon will never ever go out of style.
SSS-April Card KitI added a thin strip of the gold striped pattern paper to the bottom. I never knew how much I’d love gold, kraft & neon together.

Paper Smooches-Frame 2My project features the new Frame 2 die.
Paper Smooches-Frame 2I stamped the background using Botanicals 2. Then I die cut the sentiment onto double sided adhesive foam and covered it with Antique Silver glitter. The leave die cuts and splatters were painted using my Zig Kuretake watercolors.
Paper Smooches-Frame 2This next little mini card uses the Frame 2 die as well as the We Adore You stamp set. After stamping the owls, I masked them with a post-it and blended in Maliblue ink for the subtle background.

Mama Elephant-Ella & Friends

Hi there! Today I’m sharing another project on the Mama Elephant blog using the Ella & Friends stamp set.Mama Elephant-Ella & FriendsThis is very similar to the card I made for the March Stampede, but I changed up the elephant and bunny on this one. The way that bunny fit onto the trunk of the elephant was too good to be true, and that cutie patootie umbrella is my favorite part.
Mama Elephant-Ella & FriendsHere’s a little video to show you how I created my card using my favorite smooshing technique.

Thanks so much for looking!

Mama Elephant-Potted Pretties

Hello! Today Mama Elephant is highlighting the new Potted Pretties stamp set with coordinating dies. This adorable set was designed by the lovely & talented Elena Roussakis.
Mama Elephant-Potted PrettiesI did some selective trimming with my sentiment and popped up the top and bottom with foam tape. These flowers are so cute! There are several little tiny smiley faces to choose from that you can add to your flowers. I think Elena designs the cutest stuff.

Mama Elephant-Magical Moments

Hi there! I’m back again with Mama Elephant highlighting the new Magical Moments stamp set.Mama Elephant-Magical MomentsI’m in love with the mixture of script & type fonts on this sentiment.
Mama Elephant-Magical MomentsI used one of the Landscape Trio dies to create a mask. I adhered it section by section, blending in inks and overlapping them for a “magical”(<-that’s what I’m telling myself anyways) swoosh-y background. Then, using my craft knife, I carefully trimmed along the top of the swoosh and popped it up aligning it with the existing sentiment. It’s magical, right? lol. Just go with it.

Mama Elephant-Photo Bomb

Hi there! I’m back again with Mama Elephant highlighting the new Photo Bomb stamp set.Mama Elephant-Photo BombThis is another super fun set. I love that the Polaroid Fun dies coordinate perfectly. I used both of the smaller selfie images and cropped the larger one. Let me ask you a question. Do you love your selfie? LOL! Do you? You wanna know who I’d be if I were in these photos. I’d be the person in the aqua shirt in the middle photo. Yeah, that one, hiding behind the “hi” word bubble. That’s me, right there. That’s how much I love my selfie:)
