Jingle Greetings from Mama Elephant

Today we're sharing a couple cards created using the Jingle Greetings stamp set from Mama Elephant.  We hope they inspire you!

The card below was inspired by a card posted by Karolyn Loncon on her blog Paper Therapy.  Be sure to check out her blog.  She creates beautiful cards!

This LINK will take you to the post that includes the card that inspired the one below.

Here's a closer look at the card.  It's hard to see the shimmer from the Delicata Gold ink and the Gold, Christmas Red, and Firefly Stickles that were added.

I used the same ink and stamps, just mixed them up a bit for the next card.'s another close up of that beautiful Delicata Gold ink and Stickles.

Here's an image of the stamp set we used to create both of these cards.  You'll find the stamp set available HERE.

Below are links to the products we used:

Tim Holtz Scribbly Christmas

We used the Scribbly Christmas stamp set from Tim Holtz to create a few projects during our Holiday Workshop.  We inked the tree stamps with Tim Holtz Distress Markers, stamped it onto watercolor paper, and used a damp brush to tap some moisture onto the images.  This gave the trees a softer, watercolored look.

Here is the tree added to a burlap canvas from Tim Holtz.

Here's the same technique, added to a card.  Quick and easy!

Christmas Cheer

Today we're sharing a cute and simple card using the MFT Coffee Cup Die-namics die.

We also used the same die to create this cute project for our Holiday Workshop.  We collaged the coffee cup onto a wooden block, added a decorative knob and some ribbon.  Add your favorite hot cocoa recipe to the back and you have a great Holiday or hostess gift.

Also, back in stock, and more on order....Jingle All The Way.
