Happy anniversary Mama Elephant!

Hey hey and welcome to my stop on the Mama Elephant 6th birthday Stampede!! I’m so happy you’re here! Cannot believe it’s been SIX years!!! Yeah!!! Hooray for Mama E!!!

Now on to my cards! Both of my cards feature the new Kitty Tree stamp set and matching dies — SO CUTE! Check it out:

So. Many. Ideas. I just couldn’t stop playing!

Bring on the Merry!

As soon as I saw those lil paw print stamps this idea for an inside/outside card popped in my mind!

Here’s the outside…

And here’s the inside!

Can you tell I was giggling the whole time I was making this? :)

It’s pretty straightforward, just stamped the paw prints and then added some little star sequins here and there! I think the combo of the sequins and the kitty’s faces make the magic — well that and all the little die cuts, like the kitties dropped them on their way to the tree :)

I don’t know how they do it, but Mama E’s tiny little dies are just the best!

Pro tip: when working with teeny tiny die cuts and sequins I HAVE to have this “jewel picker” tool and this adhesive! The adhesive has a super fine tip annnnnd there’s a pin in the lid so the glue doesn’t dry in the point and clog it up — happy dance!

Now on to my next card…

Oh Kitty Tree

As soon as I saw the Kitty Tree die cut set the first thing I thought was: YOU GOTTA MAKE A SHAPED CARD! :)

Ahhhhh love how it turned out!!!

I just stamped the tree and watercolored it — yeah I was giggling the whole time on this one, too! :)

Then just die cut another piece for the back of the card, score it where ya want, and add adhesive…

Pro tip: be sure to stamp sentiment before assembling! (Yeah, can’t tell ya how many times I’ve gotten too excited and assembled the card first, lol!)

Oh and I added a little die cut star ornament on there too!

One last closeup for ya!

    Oh my, that kitty tree is SUPER CUTE!!

  17. The paw-prints card is inspired! So clever and cute, and a great way to stretch the set. It brought a smile to my face, and I could tell you had a blast making it! The shaped card is so fun too — I love the little glittery details and the ornament on the inside of the card.

  18. Both cards are so cute but, the paw prints 🐾 are my favorite!

  19. I really like your cards! :) Great job!

  20. love your style – both cards are so much fun!
