Chance of Rain

It has been raining on and off all day here, so this card is definitely appropriate to share today!


I made it for a Rainy Day swap and I used the new sketch at Sunday Stamps.


2016 Card 54 - Mama Elephant Chance of Rain

I used these fun papers from Jillibean Soup to make my card.  I paper pieced the the rain jacket and the umbrella, love doing this!  I drew in a sidewalk to add to the scene (a bit wonky, but hey I tried lol!)  I added a few Marshmallow sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to embellish the card.


Here is the sketch~




Thanks for stopping by!

Storybook and More Stories cards

Good morning!

I needed to make several cards for swaps and used one sketch (from Page Maps) as my starting point, adding in the theme for the swaps to each one.

I used Avery Elle’s Everyday paper pad and the Storybook and More Stories stamp sets. Love the adorable little animals!




This last one is my favorite of the bunch 🙂

The blue borders were cut with Avery Elle’s Dotted Borders die set. The tags and bows were cut with Mama Elephant’s Tags a Lot and Basic Creative Cuts dies. Not sure I assembled the bows right but I think they look okay.

The animals and flowers were colored with Copics.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Mama Elephant Challenge – Holiday Cards & Tags



I had a great time at my crop yesterday. I got 8 Christmas cards made and I’m here to share one of them tonight. I made it for the Holiday Cards & Tags Challenge at Mama Elephant and Me.




I recently purchased my first Mama Elephant stamps and I am HOOKED! They are adorable and they stamp great!! Very, very happy with them 🙂


2014 Card 140 - ME Arctic Penguins


I used the adorable Arctic Penguins, their coordinating Creative Cuts and the Jolly and Merry sentiment set.  The cardstock, embellishments & patterned papers are from an old Taylored Expressions card kit that’s been sitting in my stash for almost 3 years.  The layout is Sketch 506 from Splitcoaststampers.


Here is a close up of my cutie pie penguin – I popped him up on the iceberg.
