Meowlloween Extras with Debby


Hi Debby Hughes here from Lime Doodle Design and I'm delighted to be with you here on the Mama Elephant blog. I've got a too cute to be spooky card with video (see below) to share using the Meowlloween Extras set along with images from Meowlloween, Woodland Gifts and Just Hatched.

All the images are cut out with their matching dies and coloured with Copics before popping up with foam adhesive on an ink blended and watercolor splattered background.

An ink blended background adds that perfect color pop to showcase colored images and helps to ground a scene too. The splatters of watercolor and Perfect Pearls break up the inky areas and add interest and sparkle.

Meowlloween Extras with Pamela

Good morning everyone! I'm Pamela and I'll be taking over the Mama Elephant blog today with a card using Meowlloween Extras. I started off by stamping and masking the pumpkins from Meowlloween stamp set and blended some purple and black distress inks onto the card panel. 


 I coloured the pumpkins, stamped the sentiment, and stamped and cut out those cute little mice in pumpkin suits. I just love this sentiment paired up with these cuties! 

DS - Meowlloween Extra 

I masked the pumpkins again and flicked some water to the card base. I love watching water react with these distress inks!

 DS - Meowlloween Extra 

Here is the complete card after putting the die cuts together. I love stitching card panels onto the card base as a way to give some dimension to the card but without having it overdone.

 DS - Meowlloween Extra 

I decorated the card front a little bit with some dots (with some glitter and white pens).

Heartfelt Wishes with Vera

Hi there! It's Vera here!
 
Today I have a sweet card featuring the new "Heartfelt Wishes" stamp set.
I combined the sweet images from "Sunday Stroll" and clouds from "Chance of Rain"

I started off  by making the background using acrylic paint on my base card.
Pink and Metallic Gold are so good together ♥ 

I let the first paint dry before cover it again with gold paint


then cover it with vellum and here the final card!


The images were stamped on White cardstock using Versafine Ink - Vintage Sephia and colored in with Copic Markers. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Liquid Platinum and White embossing powder. 

That's all for today. Thanks so much for stopping by!
hugs,
Vera Rhuhay
