MAMA ELEPHANT Holiday Bitties | Stamp Highlights

October 16, 2018

Today we are highlighting Mama Elephant Holiday Bitties from the October release. Let’s get started!

I actually was very drawn to the sweater image from this set and ended up only using that one image. I didn’t even realize this until I was done. There are a ton of cute images to use and I have a ton of ideas! Stay tune for more on from this set from me.

I was instantly inspired to pair the sweater with some pattern paper to do a little paper piecing to get a Fair Isle sweater look. I made three different sweaters by using different pattern paper. I then die cut out the 3 large tags from the new Scallop Tags Trio Creative Cuts out of kraft paper.

I was in a die cutting mood and also made three Dainty Bows using the same pattern paper I used to make the sweaters. I die cut a panel with Sew Fancy Creative Cuts because the stitches and sweaters just felt like they should go together to me. I then adhered the tags onto my base with a tape runner. I adhered the sweaters with pop dots (because I had them out from a previous project but foam tape will also work just fine) and glued the bows on with strong, wet glue.

For my sentiment, I used the new Holiday Messages stamp set. I found “warm winter hugs” to be a perfect little sentiment for a card that had a lot going on already.

There you have it! I highly dimensional card that really packs a punch but it as relatively easy to do! Thank you for stopping by! Visit the Mama Elephant blog for more inspiration from the amazing design team!

  1. Using knit-patterned paper for the sweaters is genius! I love the look you achieved, and how the background has the more subtle knit texture and even has cross-stitching around the edge. The card is so cute and cozy and fun.

  2. These sweaters are SO cute! The idea to use paper that replicated a knit pattern was the perfect choice, and making a little bow for each frame was the perfect finishing touch to this card design. Love it!
