Another Mama Elephant

A short post this time - so unlike me right? I made a second card for the Mama Elephant March sketch.  I was inspired to try the new Tim Holtz die that may or may not have arrived on my doorstep this week (along with a lot of other goodies in said parcel). I thought it would be perfect to replace the doily.

Cute right? Even if I do say so myself. The old fashioned picture wheel die is awesome, no? I think you will see more of this in the future.

Like I've said before, and I'll say it again several times until you get that these stamps stamp perfectly e.ver.y time. Without even priming. You just peel 'em off the backing and away you go. I just love them.

After I made the card I thought that it was strange that the distress ink I used for the stamping was considerably darker than the matching distress marker I used to outline the holes. Turns out I had correctly grabbed the Faded Jeans distress pen but incorrectly used Chipped Sapphire distress ink for the stamping! Looks alright though, right?!?! What a laugh :)

Here's the link to the Mama Elephant sketch challenge I am entering it in:

Stamps (Mama Elephant - We Click), White cardstock (Stampin' Up!), Patterned Paper (American Crafts), Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Faded Jeans (pen) and Chipped Sapphire (inkpad), Tim Holtz picture wheel die, Kraft cardstock (Ormolu), the other cardstock was from my scrap file, bling.


  1. Keep on creating!! I love seeing what you do with our stamps!! The gear die is such a unique take on the sketch and those cute little cameras!! Great masculine card I think!! Thanks so much for playing along with Mama Elephant!

  2. Thanks Kryssi! I was so happy to see that the camera would just fit in the spaces! Such a cute set.
