Mama Elephant: Surprise Sentiments

Hi Everyone! Ashley here sharing a card featuring the newly released Surprise Sentiments. I love this entire release and have used a few other great new products to compliment the trendy sentiment.


This card started with the sentiment. I love the mix of fonts in this set! The curly Y  in Hooray inspired me to create a super hero (found in the new Tiny Heroes set) flying up through the sentiment. I love how the super girl fits right above the curve.


To create the scene I first die cut a piece of white card stock using the Sew Fancy dies. Then I stamped the sentiment and the super girl. The super girl will eventually be covered up but I needed her there to get my placement right. Next, I masked off an area below her and inked it up, gradually going from dark to light. Once I was done with the ink I used the Sew Fancy dies again to add the stitched lines below the sentiment.


Next I stamped the super girl image again on a separate piece of card stock and die cut it with the coordinating dies. I colored her with Copics and adhered her to the panel using dimensional adhesive. I finished the card with a few different patterned papers and stamped the card base with Sentimental Borders.

Thanks for joining me today! I can't wait to see how you use Surprise Sentiments!

It’s a great greeting card idea for kids. In my suggestion you can use greeting card app in your phone and make own online cards and send to dear ones.

Ellen Hutson & Avery Elle Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone! I'm SO excited for today's blog hop! This collaboration set is amazing and I can't wait to see how all of the talented designers used it today and how YOU will use it! To create my card I started by stamping, die cutting and coloring several of the images from Peek a Boo Pals Camp Wanna Stamp (love that name!). It's available HERE with stamps and dies or HERE with just stamps.  Next, I blended and splashed ink on a piece of cardstock to create the background. Then, I stamped the lightening bugs and added their glow, along with coloring their wings white. TIP: I used a Q-Tip to add just a small amount of Distress Oxide to make the bugs glow.  Finally, I added the sentiment and adhered everything to a card base. This set is amazing and it's PACKED full of images! There are still more images that I can't wait to stamp. Check out the set... Next up is Heather Campbell . She is SO talented, I'm sure you'll love what she created. Finally, it wou

Mama Elephant: October Anniversary Stampede!

It's Mama Elephant Birthday Stampede time!  This is so awesome, right? I'm so excited you've joined me from Stephanie's blog! Today I'm a sharing a lot of stamping goodness! Now that I'm counting, my card uses 4 new Mama Elephant stamp sets ! This card all started with the sentiment. My kids are always buzzing around the house singing and one of their favorite is Everything is Awesome (Lego Movie anyone?). :) I started with a faint pencil line to create AWESOME from the new Block Party Letters . I colored them in with Copics and then did some creative masking and stamping from Happy Everything to add the beginning of the sentiment. Next I stamped the penguin and hat (from the new Artic Penguins ), colored them and die cut them for a perfect cut. The soft, grey striped background was created using the new Boutique Borders . All stamps and dies can be purchased NOW at the Mama Elephant store HERE . Next up? The very talented JJ Bolton !
