{Mama Elephant} Lovely Mums + Hello


I'm on the Mama Elephant Blog today! I'm delighted to be joining Mama Elephant as a guest designer this month. Kryssi has always been one of my stamping idols and I was so excited when she started her own stamp company. Today, I get to share a couple of cards combining two of the newest releases, Hello and Lovely Mums. If you know me, I love to mix and match stamp sets. Confining me to one stamp set is pure torture! I wanted to mix more than these two sets so I had to limit myself to make sure each set had its own spotlight. ;)


For my first card, I stamped both flowers from Lovely Mums using both the outline and solid flowers. I love the matching solids so you don't have to colour if you don't want to. The speech bubble is from Hello. To create 'for you', I mixed and masked 'thank you for everything' from Lovely Mums. The patterned papers are from Teresa Collins' Memories paper pad.


My second card features five of the speech bubbles from Hello. I created a rainbow column that contains two phrases. If you read the scripted speech bubbles, it says one thing. If you read the smaller font below, you'll see that I used the 'you're the most beautiful...' sentiment from Lovely Mums and the same 'friend' sentiment from the first card to finish the sentence. I used foam tape to pop up three of the bubbles and added sequins with rhinestone inserts. The patterned paper is from Teresa Collins' She Said paper pad.


Thanks so much for your sweet comments here and on the Mama Elephant Blog! I hope you'll visit the Mama Elephant store or Simon Says Stamp and pick up one of their sets to play with. They are fabulously designed and highly inspirational!
