Retro Birthday Card | Mama Elephant

Hi there! I don't know exactly why but the cute piggy from 'Hogs and Kisses' immediately reminded me of the Pink Ladys from Grease. Maybe because of the combination of the hair ribbon and the pink color of pigs - but who knows ;-) However, this was the time when the idea for this retro card came into my mind.


I started by sketchin a (for me) typical American diner and traced the lines with Copic Fineliner pens. Then I colored in the floor and bar. Then I masked off both and added cracked pistachio Distress Oxide ink to the wall. I also diecut the background with the largest die of the 'dotted details' set.


In order to achieve the retro look I customized some stamp images. The barstools are made with the stamp set 'Tea with Friends' - I just cut off the backrest. The table is also from the same set - again I cut off the parasol and two of the table bases. I added a tile pattern with Copics again and the retro table was ready. I created a Pink Lady jacket for the female pig  to round things up and colored everything with Copic markers. The little treats are from the set 'Little Edibles'.



I decided on a black metallic cardbase and adhered the background and images. Last but not least I added the sentiment from 'labeled messages'.

Relax and Enjoy | Lawn Fawn

Hello everyone! After many Christmas Cards I want to show you this birthday shadow box card. It is also a last-minute entry for the Lawn Fawnatics Challenge #41 "shaped cards".



I started with creating the yellow shadow box using the 'shadow box card' and 'ocean add-on' die sets. I used Lawn Fawn sunflower cardstock for my base.


For the "tabs" I diecut white cardstock and I also used the banner die. Then I stamped lots of bubbles and other images from 'rub-a-dub-dub' and also the girl from 'bicycle built for you' with Memento tuxedo black ink and colored them in with Copic markers.


After diecutting everything and adding color to the banner I adhered the inside pieces and the images to the shadow box card.



Last but not least I stamped the sentiment from rub-a-dub-dub onto the banner and the card was all done.


Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great week! You can find a short photo story about the card making process on my Instagram account.

Christmas Card #25 | Mama Elephant

Hi there! Finally I can share a new card design with you. Since I love combining Christmas -and New Years-Wishes I created two cards at once with super cute  Mama Elephant supplies.



I startet with stamping adorable imags from the sets 'Hogs and Kisses', 'Holiday Bitties' and 'Joy Ornaments' mit Memento tuxedo black and coloring them with Copic markers. Some of them I also decorated with Nuvo glitter accents. 


After that I prepared the backgrounds with red and blues distress inks. I faded the colors out in the centre of the cards. With the starry colors from Gansai I added some golden splatters.


I diecut the backgrounds with the die from 'Framed Tags Waverly' and heat embossed the stamp from 'Happy new Year Wishes' with golden embossing powder. Then I added the ornaments and also a diy sentiment strip.


For the inside I prepared a white cardstock and diecut the middle sized dies from the pop-up-trio set. I added the pigs with the bottle onto the pop up part. To create more interest I diecut the die from 'Dotted Details' from the panel. 


After adhering everything to the card base the cards were all done. You can find the process steps also in the following photo story: 



Thank you for stopping by and have a great new week!
