Today I’m sharing a couple of CAS cards I made using Mama Elephant and Heffy Doodle products.
My nephew’s birthday is in December, but, at that time, I was a little bit busy, and I could not make him any birthday card. It really was bothering me because I think I’ve made him cards and birthday invites every year since I started cardmaking. I even had bought Mama Elephant Little Dino Agenda stamps because I knew those were perfect for him!
So one night, I decided to color the dinos just for fun, trying something different, so I used watercolors to give them a base layer of color. Once they were dry, I used colored pencils to add more depth and detail. Last, I used some gelly roll pens to add even more accents. I fussy cut all the images and then started to think about what I should make with them.
I had purchased the Heffy Doodle Messy Desk stencil, and I could not wait to use it. So I inked one of the splatters three times in three different colors on a piece of Bristol paper. I adhered this panel to a piece of kraft cardstock and then mounted it on a card base. I stamped a sentiment from Mama Elephant Lion Dance stamp set, and last, I used foam squares to glue the dinosaurs on top of the splatters. As I had many images, I made two cards. Also, I used the rest of the dinos to decorate some bookmarks made using Avery Elle dies on some Lawn Fawn patterned paper. I thought Telmo would love using these on his books.
These sort of CAS cards are not my jam, and although I keep thinking I maybe should have added some embellishment, I’m quite happy with how they turned out.
I hope you like them!
