ME Stamp Highlight - Shall We Dance

Hello and welcome back to the Mama Elephant's Stamp Highlight series. Today the Design Team is featuring the really sweet Shall We Dance set from the recent June release.

I'm sharing a matching card and tag that features the Shall We Dance set along with the Framed Tags Artist Mat CC.


To begin, I did soft no-line coloring with the stamped images from the Shall We Dance stamp set using a combination of Copics and Prismacolor pencils. After, I cut them out with the coordinating Shall We Dance CC.

The front panel and the tag were die-cut using the Framed Tags Artist Mat CC. I ink blended the front panel and the tag using Distress Oxides and spritzed them with water for texture. Once dried, I white heat embossed the sentiments from the Shall We Dance stamp set.

For sparkle, I glued on the little yellow star confetti to the front panel and the tag. 

To finish, I foam mounted the front panel to a top folding A2 sized card base and foam mounted the colored images on top. After I foam mounted the colored hippo to the tag.





Thank you for visiting me today! I hope you enjoyed my project.

Happy stamping and have an awesome day!
Hugs, Amy :)

ME Stamp Highlight - Little Boo Agenda

Hello and welcome back to the Mama Elephant's Stamp Highlight series. Today the Design Team members are featuring the cutest Little Boo Agenda set from the recent June release.

I'm sharing a fun interactive shaker card that features the new Little Boo Agenda set along with the Circular Grid CC.


To begin, I Copic colored the stamped images from the Little Boo Agenda stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating Little Boo Agenda CC.

The background panel was ink blended with Distress Oxides.

I used the Circular Grid CC to die-cut white cardstock nine times and adhered eight of them together. After, I adhered it to the background panel. I saved one to create the window panel.

On a trimmed heat resistant acetate, I heat embossed the sentiment "Booyah" from the Little Boo Agenda stamp set in white. Then, I adhered the acetate behind the saved panel. 

To finish, I added sparkling clear sequins and the colored images inside the circles and closed it with the window panel. This allowed for the ghost to move around when you shake the card. Fun! :)




Thank you for visiting me today! I hope you enjoyed my project.

I'm sharing a fun interactive birthday card that features the new Circle of Friends set along with the new Turner Surprise CC.

MFT & FRIENDS - JUNE RELEASE

Hello and welcome to the MFT & Friends feature showcasing the awesome June release that is now available for purchase at the MFT Shop.

Today I'm sharing a fun 3D Pop Up Friendship Card featuring the new Fish You Were Here stamp set along with the new Under the Sea Die-namics.


To begin, I Copic colored the stamped images from the Fish You Were Here stamp set and cut them out with the coordinating fish You Were Here Die-namics.

I die-cut Poppy, Sour Apple, Natural card stocks for the algae, coral, and rocks using the Sea Die-namics. I used the ground edge die included in the same set to die-cut Neenah 100 lb to make the dune panels. I added splatters of inks to the panels to create texture.

The sentiment "I Wish We Weren't An Ocean Apart" from the Fish You Were Here stamp was heat in embossed in white.

To finish, I assembled the card as shown. Some of the fish are attached to strips of acetate to make them look that they are swimming. 



Here's a quick video of my MFT June release countdown projects:
