Mama Elephant Graduation Card with Gift Card Holder Inside

Hello Everyone

Happy Sunday!!! :)  Today I'm sharing a card/gift card holder I created with Mama Elephant stamp sets and dies.  This design started off with me wanting to use some of these amazing products from Mama Elephant that I had purchased.  I love how everything came together and effortlessly by using a few basic die sets and one stamp set (Three Amigos).  These critters are so cute!!! I coloured them with my Copic markers.  I love all the sentiments you can put together to create a unique sentiment for that special person! :)

I encourage you to use your dies and stamp sets to create projects!




Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrappin'! :)

Mama Elephant Card With Mixed Media Background


Hello Everyone

Today I'm sharing a card I created that started off with my wanting to use some of my mixed media stuff that I have.  I started off with a plain piece of white card stock.  I laid down a thin coat of gesso. Once that was completely dried I put my stencil down and used some modeling paste with it.  Then when that was completely dried I took my watercolours and did a wash over the card stock.

I used my Mama Elephant tag die and die cut a section of my mixed media paper.  The layers of the card are also die cut using Mama Elephant dies.  I also used the cloud border die from Mama Elephant.  My cute critter is stamped and die cut using the Up and Away sets.  I used a heart balloon die to die cut my three balloons and attached them with twine.

Hope I have inspired you to use more mixed media on your cards!  It give them a lot of texture without a lot of bulk which makes it easy to mail. :)

Lawn Fawn Cupcake Birthday Shaker Card

Hello Everyone

Today I created a sweet birthday shaker card using Lawn Fawn products!  It was inspired by a card that Nicole made on Lawn Fawn's Blog.  I used the Large and Small Stitched Circle Stackables Dies for my shaker window. The three cupcakes and the cake stand as well as the sentiment are from the Baked With Love stamp and die sets.  I coloured them with my Copic markers as well as the circle background of my shaker part.  My sentiment was stamped using their Walnut Ink Pad.  I love the fact that Lawn Fawn has coordinating die sets for their stamp sets!  It makes creating cards like this sooooo easy!!! :)   
Hope I have inspired you to create cards with the amazing products from Lawn Fawn!

NYC - Sketch N Scrap Twistback Thursday June 2015

Hello EveryoneI created this layout for the Sketch N Scrap Twistback Thursday!  The layout sketch was created by one of the very talented sketch artists at Sketch N Scrap. This month's Twistback Thursday is "to use washi tape"!

This was a bit difficult for me as I have accumulated a lot of washi tape (as I'm sure a few of you can relate - lol)!  I knew that I wanted to use this photo collage of our recent trip to NYC event though the sketch only shows 1 photo.  I decided to keep my layout soft and neutral to have my photo collage be the focal point.  This is what I came up with!




Remember to play along with us over at Sketch N Scrap.
We would love to see your cards and layouts based on the amazing sketches Lisa and Kelly create!

Mama Elephant & Lawn Fawn Birthday Gift Card


Hello Everyone

Today I wanted to share a birthday card I created using Mama Elephant stamp set and Lawn Fawn Tag die set!  The patterned paper is from the Taylored Expressions.  I used the embellishing stamp pieces from Lawn Fawn's Birthday Tags stamp set to create the tone on tone background.  I used Copic markers to colour my cupcake and bunny.  I also used the Happy Birthday sentiment from Lawn Fawn's Birthday Tags stamp set and embossed with white embossing powder.  
The inside of the card I used a combination of Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die and Pretty Pink Posh's Pocket Border die to create the pocket to place a gift card in it.  
Hope I have inspired you to create cards with some of these amazing and versatile products!
