Hello, crafters! It’s definitely the start of the festive season, so today I have a Christmas card for you featuring the Mama Elephant Tree Picking set.

I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again today with some tips for creating non-Christmas themed cards with Christmas-themed stamps.

This one was super simple to create – just…

I’m filling in for Deborah today on the Seven Hills Crafts blog with a bright and fun birthday scene featuring the Mama Elephant Pinata Party and Mama Elephant Stackable Friends stamp sets.

Simple Backgrounds for CAS Cards

Cardmaking, General Cards, Thank You Cards Wednesday 30th October, 2019 Tags: , , , No Comments

More often recently I am finding I am creating cards that move towards the CAS – clean and simple – style. Lots of white space, one layer and perhaps one central image. Sometimes, just adding a simple shaped background can frame your central image and create a focal point. Today, I used the Mama Elephant Fuzzy Hugs stamp set, two sentiment sets…
