MAMA ELEPHANT Lil Toy Machine | Stamp Highlight

January 19, 2021

Hello, crafty people! Today I am sharing a card I made highlighting Mama Elephant Lil Toy Machine stamp set. If you love the Little Agenda series because they’re so cute and tiny – these are even tinier! So cute and so fun!

I started by coloring my images and die cutting them with their coordinating dies. The toy machine die cuts out a rectangle so that you can make a shaker, and that’s exactly what I did!

I built up the lil toy machine shaker by die cutting the coordinating die three times on 110# card stock and glued them together. This was the perfect thickness for me because I was going to fill it with small confetti. After I built the shaker, I sent it aside to work on the rest of my card.

For the background, I used an oldie but goodie frame die from Mama Elephant Pizazz Pieces Creative Cuts. I felt the little circles around the cover piece complimented the little circles of the toys from the machine. I ink blended the die cut in Distress Oxide Mustard Seed and Worn Lipstick.

Next, I stamped the a sentiment “Wishing You” from Paola’s Wishes stamp set directly onto the ink blended piece. To finish my sentiment, I heat embossed a modified sentiment from Lil Toy Machine stamp set on colored card stock with white embossing powder.

At this point, I was ready to assemble my card! I added all the little image and my secondary sentiment on with foam tape. Since the shaker lil toy machine already had dimension, I glued this directly onto the card. Everything was glued to an A2 card base and my card is complete!
