I created Card and Tag using Mama Elephant products. Yes! All supplies are from our today's sponsor "Mama Elephant". So, I grab my favorite Christmas stamp set  A Beary Christmas! I'm so loving with this bear family illustrated by Aida Zamora



I stamped all images on watercolor paper with Distress Ink - Antique Linen, colored with Kuretake Zig Clean Color brush pens and then  die cut it with A Beary Christmas - Creative Cuts. Framed my card with a glitter frame that I die cut with Dotted Details Creative Cuts. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the words from Season's Wishes. I finished my card by added here and there some Sparkling Clear Sequins.



For complete my card, I create a simple tag. Here I used rounded frame from Lafayette Creative Cuts and Venice Envelope Creative Cuts. And Merry Christmas word are from Wishful Taggins stamp set.



And here are my complete project for today :)

ME | Scripty Notes Designer Series

Hi everyone! I'm on Mama Elephant's blog today to share fun idea using  Scripty Notes,  a fun hand-lettered sentiment set designed by Kryssi! Her handwriting is so beautiful and it pairs nicely with the sweet images from Luli Bunny's Lovely Piggies set!



I started by stamping the Lovely Piggies on Bristol paper, colored with Copics and die cut with Lovely Piggies - Creative Cuts. I made the tags by mixed and matched some dies as shown in the supplies picture below.



I die cut two piece rounded frame from Frame Tags - Lafayette - Creative Cuts (No.1), one for the tag based and the other one, I die cut again with a part dies from Venice Envelope - Creative Cuts (No.2). I used hole reinforcement from Tags a Lot - Creative Cuts (No.3) for placing the twine and bow from Stitched Gift Tags - Creative Cuts (No.4) for additional accessories on tags.


On the left, I blended the based tag with dye ink pad and splatter with white paint then white heat embossed the sentiment.  On the right, I just simply heat embossed the sentiment with silver embossing powder, decorate with pink bow on top and added here and there some sparkling clear sequins.





Thank you so much for stopping by
and I hope this inspired you to create beautiful projects!

Happy crafting!
