Combo Circle with Vera

 Hi, there! It's Vera here today and I'll be sharing my project featuring Mama Elephant Combo Circle - Creative Cuts and Tag Size Greetings stamp set. 


Here I created shape cards by using the Combo Circle - Creative Cuts and the sweet bunnies from Wish Upon a Star and Family Time stamp set that I stamped on Bristol paper and colored with Copic Markers. 

For this baby card, I cut the Big Scallop Circles on Pink and Pale Orange paper and ink blended with Distress Ink. The sentiment from Tag Size Greetings was heat embossed with Silver embossing powder. 

For this sending love and happiness card, I die cut the Big Scallop Circles on Pink and soft purple paper, and ink blended with Distress Inks (Shaded Lilac and Victorian Velvet)

and for the last card, I use the bunnies from the Family Time set. I die cut the Big Scallop Circles on soft purple and cream paper, and ink blended with Distress Inks (Shabby Shutter and Peeled Paint)

Thank you for joining me, I hope you enjoy today's inspiration, and see you next time!

Everyday Monkeys with Megan

Hello again! This is Megan and I am pleased to be joining you today on the Mama Elephant Blog. I have a fun filled Slim Scenescape card to share featuring the oh so adorable Everyday Monkeys so let's get started. 

I love the Slim Scenescape Builder CC that was introduced in May of 2021. It has such a fun interactive element that easily transitions into a pop up scene. I couldn't help but create a card combining it with the newest monkeys in the Mama Elephant family.
 

I began by stamping images from Everyday Monkeys and Little Monkey Agenda. I used an alcohol friendly ink, colored them with Copic Markers, and cut them out using the coordinating creative cuts. 

Next, I die cut pieces to create the main part of the card base from Kraft cardstock. Before attaching them together with double sided tape, I ink blended the edges with a bit of Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink to add some depth.

 

I then used the rounded interior die in Slim Scenescape Builder CC to create a bit of sandy ground for several of the monkeys to stand on. I blended on Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks using a blending brush and splattered the piece with some diluted Vintage Photo for texture. 

For the grass pieces, I used the larger interior die from Slimscape Rainbow Add CC and the grass die from Slim Window Dress CC. After blending Twisted Citron and Lucky Clover Distress Oxide Inks onto them, the ground elements were complete. 


I wanted the playful monkeys to have a beautiful sunset sky to enjoy, so I used Dried Marigold, Worn Lipstick, and Abandoned Coral, and Festive Berries Distress Oxide Inks. I blended them onto the smaller background layering piece from Slim Scenescape Builder CC. 

Once all of the panels and images were adhered together, I stamped the sentiment on the front decorative strip and attached it to the box. A few hearts from Everyday Monkey scattered here and there finishes this design.

Thank you for visiting the Mama Elephant Blog today! We hope that you have found inspiration here and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

STAMP HIGHLIGHT : To My Dearest

 Today we are highlighting the new To My Dearest stamp set! We totally dig all these little love notes from the team!



Megan paired To My Dearest with Snail Mail - Creative Cuts for this adorable slimline card. She used an older stamp set, Incoming Mail, for additional mail themed images. To complete the scene, she stamped and embossed a sentiment from Tag Size Greetings on the mailbox and it couldn't be more precious!



Totally love how Davina had connected the three sentiments from the new To My Dearest stamp set!




Thi paired To My Dearest images with Big Thank You So Much - Creative Cuts for a bold yet sweet thank you card.



For today's highlight Vera paired To My Dearest with hello from Words Defined stamp set and used the frame from the new Mod Heart - Creative Cuts.
