Galaxy Backgrounds | Mama Elephant

Hi there! I received a bunch of questions about the galaxy backgound for one of my previous cards, so I decided to put together a video to show how I created two different ones using distress inks and white cardstock.

It’s definitely the perfect background for a card that doesn’t need much else.

I have had this set for awhile and even though they are perfect for Christmas cards, it also works for birthday cards or just because cards.

For this card, I used colors for the balloons that matched the colors peeking through the galaxy in the background, making it really playful and whimsical.

For the second card, I really wanted to play with purple colors for a galaxy instead of a typical dark blue and black background. I like how this looks so different from the first one, with just a few color changes. It makes such a big difference.

Snow Marker | Mama Elephant

Hi there!

I finally got myself to make a Christmas card, thanks to the new release by Mama Elephant! When I received the new release in the mail, I knew I just had to create something immediately.

I wanted something pretty simple and the Grid Window die from Mama Elephant made it really easy. I just colored up 12 snowmen and my card was more or less done. The special element to this card was using the Snow Marker. The snow marker dispenses a liquid that when heat is added, it’ll puff it up like snow. I added it to all the windows for the snowmen to sit on.
