More Mama Elephant Deliciousness!


It’s my last day as this month’s Mama Elephant Guest Designer!!  I’m sad, but have enjoyed every minute of creating with the July release and sharing my projects with you.  So let’s get to it, shall we?

Full House 2 - Mama Elephant July 2013
(Click on the photo to enlarge.)

More Full House deliciousness!!  Is that set not the most fun?!!  All of those darling little houses (and the single buildings from Bling) just melt my heart and truly appeal to my clean and simple/graphic tendencies.  I stamped all of the pretty little houses/buildings with a fun little color scheme that was inspired by some DP that I had on my desk (can’t for the life of me remember what it was now! LOL)  I then decided to create a little scene by adding the clouds and hot air balloon from Sunny Skies.  The sentiment is from Up and Away – LOVE!

Lights Out - Mama Elephant July 2013

My final project was soooo fun to create!!  I love a play on words – a light bulb literally went off in my head when I read that sentiment from Lights Out!  LOL  I cut the thought bubble using my Silhouette Cameo.  I stamped the light bulb onto vellum, heat embossing it with white EP.  The star filament was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with silver EP.  I tied a little baker’s twine around the bottom of the light bulb and adhered it inside the thought bubble with foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed with silver EP.  Fun, right?  The Lights Out set is definitely one that should be in every stamp collection!

Well that’ll do it for me!  I want to thank Kryssi and Angela for allowing me to be a part of the Mama Elephant team this month – it’s been a real pleasure to work with their stamps and them!

I’m off to the Children’s Museum with my daughter and grandsons today . . . always a good time!  LOL  Hope you have some super fun plans for your day, too!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Totally fun!!! Absolutely adore the card stock color of your "Bbrilliant" card - whoda thunk that this color would look soooo good with bits of silver/grey!!!

Your sweet "Sending Smiles" card totally made me smile...more amazing colors that look fab together! The black base totally is the perfect backdrop for these colors!

Two gorgeous cards. MME stamps are fantastic, aren't they?! Love the colors you've chosen for both cards, and the black base on the first one makes your whole card pop. The vellum bulb?!!!...darn clever! Fantastic and fun cards. Bev
