Hey everyone.. How was your weekend? It’s time to start making a few Christmas Cards in my house and the new release from Mama Elephant was perfect to get started with.
I started out with the Hillside Cover die from Mama Elphant and I die cut a piece of Watercolor paper. Then I added some color to the hills with a No. 36 Light Blue Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker and a damp paintbrush. Then I stamped the images from the new City Sidewalks set from Mama Elephant using some VersaFine Black Onyx ink on Watercolor paper and Colored them in with several Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. No. 50,51, 34,83, 61, 45, 31, 70, 49, 52, 94, 62, 46, 220, 27, 44, 66 & 47. I used a damp paintbrush to move the color around for a watercolor look. Once they were dry I die cut them using the coordinating dies.
Using the Mini Misti I stamped the Sentiments in some additional VersaFine Black ink. Then I adhered the hillside panel to a top folding card base. I adhered my die cut images into the hills with some foam tape and liquid glue. I wanted to add some snow to the roofs of the buildings so I added some Copic Opaque White with a small paintbrush. Once the Opaque White was dry I used a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen to add some Shimmer to the snow.
This is such a cute set.. And I there are a few more other great sentiments included. Be sure to head over to the store and check out the Adorable Mama Elephant Holiday Release!!!
Have a Great Day!!

Good morning! Jess here with a Christmas card using two newly released stamps from Sunny Studio Stamps and Mama Elephant! I’m starting to mass-produce Christmas cards for the upcoming Caring Hearts Card Drive and these two sets combined to make a really simple but elegant card!
I die-cut the entire panel with the Wonky Stitches die for a little interest around the panel and then stamped the main sentiment from Merry Christmas Wishes with versamark and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder! And that’s it! Love LOVE both those sets and I have a feeling you’ll be seeing them quite a bit this season! 😉
Hello wonderful crafty friends! It is Lisa here with you today, and while I know so many of us are getting ready for Halloween, the very next Holiday (Thanksgiving) will be upon us in America in not time at all. So I’m just getting a little jump on things and sharing this super cute Thanksgiving card with all of you today…
To create this card I started by stamping the pumpkins and little pilgrim beavers from the Giving Thanks set by Pretty Pink Posh onto Neenah Solar White Cardstock and colored them in with Copic Markers (E11, E15, E37, YR04, YR15, YR18, B95, B97, Y15, Y17, RV10, RV63, RV91, RV95). I then cut all of them out and set to the side. I then stamped the leaf and acorn images all over the front of my cardbase, colored these in with Copic Markers (YG03, YR15, R46, E15, E27). This time I did not add any shading as this was just for the background and I wanted the main focus to be on the characters. I then went over the background with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I wanted to add a green little hill for my critters to stand on and to double as a place for my sentiment so I die cut a hill from the Lawn Fawn Let’s Polka in the Meadow Paper Pack and with the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders Die Set. I then stamped my sentiment with Versafine ink and added the critters with foam adhesive for more dimension.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!
