More Adorable Elephants

FMS249_2I love these little elephants from My Favorite Things – they’re called Adorable Elephants – very appropriate!!  I coloured up about 60 or so of them with copic markers and cut them all out by hand.  I just couldn’t help myself!!  I’ve used a circle and grass die from MFT and used a cloud die to create a mask to give a hint of clouds behind the elephant.  I loved the little butterflies that come with the stamp set and thought I’d colour them in so they went along with the same colours as the rainbow strip…FMS249_3I thought I’d join in the challenge over at All sorts challenge, which is butterflies and Sweet Stampin challenge blog, which is to use your favourite stamp.  At the moment this is by far my favourite stamp!!

Hope you like the card, thanks for stopping by :)

Adorable Elephants

FMS249_1I have been after this stamp set (“Adorable Elephants” by My Favorite things) for a couple of months as I love these little elephants.  Once I got it, I stamped a lot of elephants, coloured them in with copics and cut them all out by hand!!  Yes, I’m crazy, but I was filling in time while at my daughters gymnastics class and while watching the olympics.FMS249_3So, I have no idea what to do with them all yet, but I’m joining in the challenge over at Ellibelle’s Creative Moments with a “lets colour challenge” and  Freshly Made Sketches with this great sketch.FMS Final 249-001The little polaroid die cut is from Mama Elephant Polaroid Fun.  I used distress inks to colour the strips of blue and pink paper and white heat embossed the sentiment.   I can’t wait to keep creating with all these cute little elephants.

Penguins in Paradise – MFT


As I mentioned in my previous post, I haven’t entered any challenges for a while.  I must have been extra inspired by the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, as now I’ve made quite a few cards and entered this challenge twice (I hope that’s ok).FMS Final 248-001Once again, I turned the card on it’s side.  I used masking to give that little taste of the beach and water.  The stamps are all from the My Favorite Things “BB Penguins in Paradise” set. I colored the images in copic markers and fussy cut them out.  I love this stamp set, it is so much fun.  Can’t wait to get it out again and play…

Lunar Animals – Mama Elephant


It’s been a long time since I’ve entered any challenges on my blog.  A move to the other side of the world can do that to you!!  I couldn’t resist joining in the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  As soon as I saw this sketch I thought of these cute critters from Mama Elephants “Lunar Animals” set.  I’ve just turned the card on it’s side :)FMS Final 248-001

I stamped a bunch of these little animals, colored them all up with copic markers and used the die cuts to cut them out.  The “Thanks” die cut came from a stampin’ up set.  I made a few of these cards as I always seem to run out of thank you cards!!FMS248_4FMS248_3

They also have a gorgeous little puppy dog in this set, but my 8 year old daughter stole them both after I’d coloured them to make a card for her friends 9th Birthday.  The little balloons are actually a die cut speech bubble from a mama elephant set, which was just the perfect size for these little puppies.  Here is her card – so adorable:
