Little Sloth Agenda with Thi


Thi here and today I am sharing a shaker card I made by combining Little Sloth Agenda with Six Window Cover - Creative Cuts. These little windows are perfect for small scenes with all the agenda stamp sets. I decided for today's project, I will be coloring my sloth into yetis instead. This stamp set is so versatile in that way - it's all about the way you color the images!



Let's get to it! To begin, I stamped my images and colored them with Copic markers then die cut them with their coordinating dies.



Next, I die cut a piece of lavender color card stock with the Six Window Cover die and built my shaker by covering the back with acetate then foam tape. I filled the foam tape wells with stardust confetti.



For the back of the windows, I ink blended with Distress Ink in Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass before adhering it to the shaker back. This adds a little color and interest behind the shaker windows.



Next I glued all my yetis onto the windows. For the sentiment, I heat embossed a sentiment from Sentiments from a Yeti stamp set onto kraft paper, fussy cut it out then adhered with foam tape.



That's it! My shaker card is complete. I hope I inspired you today to turn your sloths into yetis! Have a creative day!

Zodiac Sheep with Amy

Hello, friends! Amy here today with a fun Easter basket project.
It features the adorable Zodiac Sheep stamp set along with Little Chickie AgendaCute Basket XL CC3D Pop-Up Card CC.



To begin, I Copic colored the stamped images from the Zodiac Sheep and Little Chickie Agenda stamp sets and cut them out with the coordinating Zodiac Sheep CC and Little Chickie Agenda CC.


The baskets were made using Cute Basket XL CC and I assembled them as shown.


The fence and the grass were made using the dies from the 3D Pop-Up Card CC. I trimmed and adhered them to the bottoms of the baskets. After, I foam mounted the colored images to the front of the baskets.

To finish, I filled the baskets with shredded paper and easter candy.

Little Sloth Agenda with Mette

Hello! Mette Witus here today with some simple tags!
I was soooooo excited when I saw that the Little Sloth Agenda stamps could be turned into the cutest tiny yetis. I just knew they would work perfectly with the Me and My Yeti set too. I know it’s a bit early, but I really wanted to make some Christmas tags with the yetis.

Mette Witus Designer Series, March 2020
I started off stamping a bunch of Little Sloths and scenery images from Me and My Yeti. Since I knew I wanted to make a whole bunch of them, I kept the coloring really simple by not adding any shadows. Then I cut them out with the matching dies.

I also cut a bunch of white tags using the tag from the Basic Set as the base for my tag and punched a little hole in each of them. I really wanted to use the fun wonky circles from the Six Window Cover die as the bas for my little scenes, so I cut a lot of those from light blue cardstock and white cardstock too - remember to keep track of which circles are the same, as they are slightly different. For the white circles, I cut them with the Landscape Trio dies to create little snowy hills.

Mette Witus Designer Series, March 2020

When I assemble the scene pieces, I make sure to place some things behind the snowy hill, e.g. mountains or trees, and some in the front to create a bit of depth. I cut off the excess trees and mountains and then I glued each scene piece to the tag and stamped a sentiment from Wishful Taggins on the bottom before adding the yetis with a bit of foam tape.

Stackable Friends with Megan

Hello! Megan Quinn here and I am ecstatic to be guest designing for Mama Elephant! I am popping in today to share a fun interactive card that I created using the Turner Surprise Creative Cuts. If you love creating interactive cards like I do, then you will want to stick around for this one.

I don't know about you, but I love combining stamp sets from my stash to create unique card designs. Mama Elephant has so many products that work well together. I love that about them! The card that I have to share with you today is an example of this.


For my card, I combined the new Stackable Friends Stamp Set with the previously released Donut Treats and Circle of Friends Stamp Sets. (Aren't the animal images just the cutest?!) I stamped my images out using a dark brown hybrid ink, colored them using Copic Markers, and used the coordinating Creative Cuts to die cut them out. I then repeated this process on the hidden panel of the Turner Surprise. 

To build my card, I used the scalloped rectangle shaped die from the Sweet Feline Creative Cuts to cut a white cardstock panel and layered an inked over the top. I then built my Turner Surprise to adhere to the top. (To see the instructional video for the Turner Surprise on Mama Elephant's YouTube channel, please click here.)


This style of card gives your recipient such a wonderful surprise! It's so much fun and they are going to love it! I hope that you are inspired by my card. Thank you so much for stopping by today!

We love Keeway's creativity in this adorable celebratory card with the Zodiac Horse, building her own platform using the tag die from Artist Mat Creative Cuts and giving the horse a banner to hold from Hippity Hop!


For this colorful card, Maria mixed the Zodiac Horse with the letter and cupcake from Zodiac Sheep and the hat from Zodiac Snake. The horses are watercolored and I try to show several breeds of horses. The Sentiment is from the Birthday Messages Stamp Set.




Megan created a super cute interactive card with the these sweet horses and a banjo-ing chick from the Party Animal set!


Amy created a fun A-NEIGH-VERSARY scene card using the Zodiac Horse, Grassy Trio, Gatefold X Fence and the Snow Capped Mountain Creative Cuts.
