Lunar Extras and Lucky Envelope with Nichol

Hi there! It's Nichol here today with a Designer Series project showcasing the Lunar Extras Stamps and Lucky Envelope Creative Cuts dies. I stamped the images with white pigment ink on the die cut kraft gift card holder and colored in the images with Prismacolor Colored Pencils.


I die cut the envelope from kraft cardstock using the Lucky Envelope Creative Cuts Die. While the die was still flat, I stamped the images and greeting from the Lunar Extras Stamp Set using white pigment ink. I colored in the images with Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I didn't use a blending medium or tool at all for these images. I love the way colored pencils look on kraft cardstock, don't you?!

Once the images were colored, I folded the envelope on the score lines and secured the two tabs to make the envelope using Thermoweb 1/4" double side tape.

On the back of the envelope I stamped "to" and "from" from the Mini Messages Stamp Set and three flowers from the Lunar Extras Stamp Set using white pigment ink. I colored in the flowers to finish the envelope.

Lunar Animals and All Prettied Up with Laura

Hi there! Laura here and today I have a project to share with you using several of the new November release products.

Mama Elephant-I Like You & All Prettied Up 

I started off by creating a panel with a window opening using the All Prettied Up creative cuts. The adorable pink striped bow & box for the kitty & puppy are also part of the All Prettied Up creative cut set.

I tucked the kitty & puppy from the Lunar Animals stamp set into the box and added the Script Friend creative cut along with a stamped sentiment from the new I Like You stamp set.

Here's a video to show you how I made my card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!


Lunar Animals with Elena

Hi there, Elena here, with what will be my last post on the Mama Elephant design team. sniff!

I crafted a more masculine birthday card, using the adorable dog from Lunar Animals:

I created a window for my focal scene using the new die set, All Prettied Up. I love the scallop frame! By not snipping the circle away from the larger rectangular die, I could cut out the circle and have it be perfectly centered.

The dog is so cute. I stamped the little party hat (also included in the set) onto his head, and used the balloon from Carnival Toppers to make sure he's party-ready. The sentiment is from the exclusive set that Mama Elephant created for Simon Say Stamp, called Skater Kids. It's still available in the Simon Says shop - click!

I used a copic marker to color in the scallops of the circle frame, to make sure it stood out. I then flicked some white paint over the card-front before adhering everything together. Simple, but cute! And perfect for a little boy's birthday.

I hope you like it, and a huge thanks to Kryssi and Angela for the time I spent on their design team. Keep on making all the cute things!
