Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Little Dog Agenda

Hello, friends! Today Mama Elephant is showcasing the adorable Little Dog Agenda set. I love small and cute things, and this definitely fits the bill. This set is great for planners, tags and even cards!

To begin, I die-cut Copic friendly paper using rectangle die from Peek a frame creative cuts. It adds a nice stitched detailing around the borders. Then, I stamped part of a sentiment from Wishing You on black cardstock using Versamark ink, and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. After, I stamped the main sentiment from Tandem Extras using black ink on the front of the die-cut paper. I attached the sentiment on the black cardstock with dimensional foam. Next, I randomly stamped all the little dog images, trying to space them out as evenly as I could. I then colored them with Copic markers. I also stamped the little dog holding a heart separately and propped him up with dimensional foam. This card was almost too easy and so fun to make, I made a second card with the same stamp set.

For the next card, I distressed the sides of an A2 size Bristol cardstock with a variety of Distress Oxide inks. Then, I die cut white cardstock using a 6 window frame from Peek a Frame creative cuts as shown.

 I added a layer of foam adhesive around it and attached it to the distressed panel. Next, I took the negative squares, inked them with Distress Oxide ink and placed them back into the frame.

I stamped and colored the little dogs with Copic markers, and cut them out with their coordinating dies. After, I placed them inside the squares. For the sentiment, I stamped Hollow Letters and colored them in with Copic markers, trying to match the colors of the Distress Oxide inks. I was really going for a colorful card, as you can see. To finish the card, I fussy cut them out and adhered them to the front as shown.

I hope you enjoyed both cards!
