Welcome Little One!

Hi there

Today, I spent more time in the craft room, rounded up all my deadlines and then I had time to do some organising and a some play time with new stamps and dies from Mama Elephant..

I have been a big big fan of Mama Elephant for a long time and was honoured to be apart of their very first release when the company first went live, but as time went on and my DT responsibilities took over, plus general life, I was finding it more and more harder to just find that time to play and that meant with any companies products…

Now, that I have that little bit of time, I am jumping back in and having fun just creating for me and it feels so good…


So with that being said, here is a little baby card I created using Just Hatched, Carnival Cupcakes, Nursery Deco and Basic Borders…

Stamping out all the images I wished to play with, I took distress inks and water coloured each in, die cutting the images out and adding to more water colour paper, that I had stamped a banner, stamping out a sentiment and feeling like it needed a little something else, I took one of the border stamps and stamped along the bottom of the card..


I have been placing more Mama Elephant in my cart and itching to purchase more, I must try to resist but some days it is just hard, right? LOL

I hope that you love the card as much as I do and find some inspiration, as always I have all the products linked at the base of this post..

Once again thanks so much for stopping by..
