Mama Elephant Tiny Heroes and Surprise Sentiments

May 27, 2015

I went for a black and white comic book feel for this card – I used Copics to colour the Tiny Heroes in shades of grey. And it’s not just a birthday card, it’s a Super Duper Birthday Card! I also thought this might work for the Daring Cardmakers latest theme of science fiction what with all the superheroes…

Mama Elephant – Carnival Cupcakes

March 7, 2015

Some more distress ink water colouring today using the sweet little bunny and bear from Carnival Cupcakes. I paired a sentiment from Surprise Sentiments with a stamp from an older Hero Arts set to come up with the greeting you can see on here.

Carnival Cupcakes – Mama Elephant

March 3, 2015

I’ve had these lovely stamps for a while now but hadn’t really used them much. I splashed out on the matching dies a couple of weeks ago which has definitely helped! I was inspired by Kristina Werners lovely watercolouring of the bunny and the bear on this card so I thought I would have a go myself with my distress inks. I was really pleased with the result, I am sure that I will be using that technique more in the future. I used paper from Lawn Fawn’s Let’s Polka 6 inch pad and dies from Lawn Fawn and Spellbinders.

Surprise Sentiments – Mama Elephant

February 24, 2015

Along with the Tiny Heroes stamps from Mama Elephant I also ordered the Surprise Sentiments stamps. Love the fonts that these stamps use, particularly the sketchy effect on some of the words. I did a little stamp surgery on this one and cut off the line “to you dear friend” from the bottom of the Happy Birthday and replaced it with “you’re dino-mite” from the Lawn Fawn Critters From The Past set so it fitted in better with my lovely blue dino from the same set. I used the tree and the rocks from the set to create a bit of a scene and then drew in some grass with a black fine liner and coloured with Copics.

I also used the stitched rectangles dies and the Lets Polka 6×6 paper pad from Lawn Fawn.

Tiny Heroes – Mama Elephant

February 23, 2015

I love this time of year when all the new releases start arriving after the January CHA expo. The first ones I had my eye on were these Tiny Heroes stamps from Mama Elephant. I love the teeny superheroes and their animal sidekicks!

I used my new Copic Ciao’s that I got for Christmas to colour them – it has taken me a while to get used to the Copics and to manage to colour anything without the pens bleeding / feathering over the outline of the stamps. A light touch is definitely needed!

I also used some of the new dies from Mama Elephant, the Sew Fancy creative cuts to cut the circles. Love the way that you get the dots on the inside and the outside of the cut line.
