Mama Elephant

No, I haven't grown to the size of an elephant! Mama Elephant is a stamp company I told you about last year. I was lucky enough to win a gift voucher and I purchased 2 stamp sets and I tell ya, these sets are awesome! They ink up beautifully e.ver.y time. Every time people! Even better than some other well known brand ones I have. Also the sayings are really modern and up-to-date (including Gangham style - that's how up-to-date they are). I find myself using their cute little sayings a lot. There are a couple more sets I want but am holding off.....maybe until I can win another gift card with my brilliant creation??????

Here's the aforementioned brilliant creation:

The challenge was a sketch challenge and it actually came together pretty fast (for me anyway).
So fast that I ended up making two more of the same card (in under an hour total for 3 cards). I could've made 4 cards in total with only 2 sheets of A4 patterned paper and white cardstock but I started the first card from a scrap piece. That's 3 more cards for my card stash. As I was putting them away I looked at them and thought: I wish I had popped the top pennant up on foam tape. I could re-stamp the pieces and add them on top.....if I could be bothered. I'll let you know if I ever do.

Here's the details:
Mama Elephant March Sketch Challenge: http://www.mamaelephantblog.com/2013/03/me-sketch-challenge-02-31-314.html

Stamp (Mama Elephant), White cardstock (Stampin' Up!), Patterned Paper (American Crafts), Ink (Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Faded Jeans), doily. The other cardstock was from my scrap file.


  1. Super cute card, Amanda!! You know those doilies make me go pitter patter haha! Great take on the sketch!! :) Thanks for playing along with ME!

    1. Thanks Kryssi! I plan on making another one for the challenge. I usually struggle with sketches but your one had me creating no worries (as you can see by how many cards I made). I simply adore your stamp sets - the sayings are so cool.
