Costumed Cuties with Vera

Hi, there! It's Vera here today and I'll be sharing my project featuring the Mama Elephant - Costumed Cuties stamp set.

First, I stamped all images as shown in the picture with Memento Ink on Bristol paper and colored it with Copic markers and pencil colors. And then cut it out with Costumed Cuties - Creative Cuts.


First I have bookmark-birthday cards, that I create for my nephews Jojo and Caleb. I just cut the A2 card size in half and layer it with grid paper for the base card. Then I cut Lucky Alphas in many different colors of paper, backed the pieces with foam tape, and applied them to the card as shown in the picture.  I use the Birthday Messages stamp for the sentiment.


Next, I create a birthday card by combining the Costumed Cuties stamp set with the loopy frame.  
  

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


Happy creating!

Costumed Cuties with Megan

Hello friends! I am happy to be back on the Mama Elephant Blog after taking a little break in May. The June 2022 Release is jam packed with awesome products and I featured one of the new sets in today's project. 

When I first looked at the adorable animals from Costumed Critters, I thought that it would be fun to have them dressed in cozy pjs instead of Halloween costumes. I love trying to find different ways to use products because it really helps you to get the most out of your supplies.


To begin, I stamped images from Costumed Critters, Toasty Friends, Tree Picking, Merrygrams AEIOUY, and Yappy Woofmas on Neenah Solar White 80 lb Smooth Cardstock using a dark brown hybrid ink. After coloring the images with Copic Markers, I die cut them using the coordinating creative cuts.


Next, I chose a patterned paper from my stash that looked like a wallpaper design. I die cut it using the second largest rectangle from B2B Rectangles CC. To mute the pattern just a bit, I layered a piece of vellum over the top. Before adhering the two layers together, I heat embossed a sentiment from Mixed Holiday Greetings onto the piece of vellum.


To ground the scene, I ink blended a piece of Bristol Smooth Cardstock using Antique Linen, Scattered Straw, and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks. I flicked on a bit of Vintage Photo and Copic White to add some texture to the flooring.

After all of the elements for my card were ready, I adhered the background pieces together. I then added the images using liquid glue, foam tape, and glue dots. To give the scene some fun shine and interest, I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard and a white gel pen.

Thank you for stopping by the Mama Elephant Blog today! We are so thankful that you spent this time with us! I have listed and linked the products that I used below to the Mama Elephant Shop for you. We hope that you have a great day and that you come back soon!
