Hello my fellow Mama Elephant lovers! Today I'm the guest blogger for ME featuring two of their brand new stamp sets. I've got three cards and three tags to share with you! (My regularly scheduled "one stamp, five ways" Tuesday post will be up on Wednesday featuring the Simon Says Stamp May card kit stamp).
The first stamp set I worked with is Monster Jam (also sold at Simon Says Stamp). The little monsters are really small, so they work perfectly on the Mama Elephant tags from their Framed Tags (also sold at Simon Says Stamp) die set. I made three shaker tags:
I made shaker tags by using both of the tag dies with fun foam between them (doubled so they are thicker). I used Stick It Adhesive sheets over the foam between the layers (I apply it before die-cutting the foam to make life much more simple!). I filled them with multi-color sequins by Pretty Pink Posh (all listed in the supplies at the bottom of this post). I watercolored the tag fronts on each which are die-cut from Ranger Watercolor Paper (nice and white!).
I stamped the monsters in a MFT Natural Ink and then colored them with Copic markers. I then outlined them with a fine tip black marker. I curved the sentiments in the set to stamp them on the top of each tag using SSS Intense Black Ink.
I stamped all four of the monsters, the confetti, and the little words randomly over watercolor paper. I painted them all and then painted between them with shimmery pearlescent watercolor (or a Wink of Stella pen would work for this type of sheen).
I stamped the sentiment on a stitched banner from the MFT Blueprints 20 die set and added some twine to the top of the card. I also added some white 4mm Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow sequins around the images.
I used a frame die from the same Framed Tags die-set. I use these dies so much! I watercolored the frame and attached it to a white card base.
I stamped the bunnies and accessories in MFT Natural Ink and then colored them with Copic markers. I outlined them with a fine tip black marker. I stamped the sentiment above them on the card base and added some white sequins.
This card is made from watercolor paper that I painted with purples and pinks. I die-cut an MFT Rounded stitched frame out of the top of the card base and stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card.
I stamped all of the bunnies and accessories and colored them with Copic markers. I added some of the little leaves colored in purples to match the background. I think trees in bunnyville have purple leaves, don't they?
I hope you enjoyed my creations today. I certainly enjoyed making them! Working (rather playing) with Mama Elephant stamps is always a pleasure for me! Thanks so much for visiting and come back tomorrow for my "one stamp, five ways" Tuesday post. Suzy
