Mama Elephant, Stitched framelits

Happy birthday KJ

So one of the princess’ best friends had a birthday party yesterday for her birthday that is actually tomorrow… and here is the card I made inspired by her lovely dog Lottie…

I had to use the Dogs Woof stamp and stamped it a few times before trimming it down and colouring with ink and a water brush.

I then stamped one of the single images and diecut and mounted this … and then inside the same image.

Hope KJ likes her Lottie inspired card. And here is a pic of the lovely Lottie dog!

Happy crafting!


Howlstooth & Scaringbone, Mama Elephant

More woof and meow

I have some cards I made using the fab Mama Elephant stamps … this time the cats came out to play too.

I stamped the full image and coloured them with promarkers and then die cut the image using two different dies.

This gave me two different card toppers. I created the cards using bright Daffodil Delight cardstock and some scraps of papers. I like the bold look of using the promarkers… it creates a very different look to the watercolour.

For the Dogs I used watercolour pencils to colour them and again chose some scraps of paper and then some Crushed Curry cardstock for the bases.

So two different looks for these super cute stamped images and different from yesterday’s tag too. And love using part of the big image rather than just leaving it as it is… makes the set even more versatile.

Happy crafting!

The Dogs Woof tag

I recently had a bit of a splurge including buying these fabulous stamps from Mama Elephant that I have been NEEDING ever since I first saw them months ago. So this is my first play with the Dogs Woof stamp… and I created a thin panel by masking and stamping different parts on top of each other. I used the stamp platform to ensure I got good crisp images.

I then added a very diluted amount of white gesso so I could add colour on the kraft cardstock. I added the colour using watercolour pencils and a waterbrush.

Once they were all coloured as I wanted them I edged the panel and then layered it onto another piece of kraft with a layer of waxy paper in between. I then punched a hole and added the string and ribbon.

This cute tag was made for the UK stampers forum swap last month so I hope the recipient likes dogs! Lol!

Happy crafting!
