Mama Elephant Highlight: Starry Night


Hey everyone!  Today we're moving on to the Cosmic Stars companion set, Starry Night!  I have not one, but three cards to share today!  Something about these starry stamps seemed to motivate me:)  Sometimes I have a clear idea of the final product before I'm done.  Sometimes I just start stamping and hope for the best.  This is definitely a case of the latter.  I really wanted to do a falling star card with the 4 constellation builder stamps. First I did a full card version.  Then I did a more CAS version that is inspired by this card I did for the October release and this card by the wonderful Debby Hughes.  Lots of inky fun!



The third card came about because I wanted to play with those adorable Cosmic Stars stamps again!  Actually, I combined 3 Mama Elephant sets with this card: Starry Nights (sentiment and stars), Cosmic Stars (Virgo), and Believe in Magic (snow globe base).  Love those sweet stamps:)  


That's it for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  And please hop on over and  check out what the other gals have done with Starry Nights!

Come back tomorrow for another January release stamp highlights!  Enjoy your day!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj

  2. These are so cute! I was kind of iffy about these sets because I couldn't figure out why I'd make zodiac cards. I love your take on them and I'm seeing the possibilities now! Thanks, JJ!

  9. Oh WOW, I love your starry night cards!!! Those stamps are perfect paired up with the Modern Landscape die. You know, in the 20+ cards I've seen using this die recently, you're one of the only ones who has kept the sides of the house straight. It's a deceptively tricky die, but this just underscores why you're the master!
