Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Papa Love

Hey there!  Time for another Mama Elephant's March release highlight!  Remember, the new release is live now and available for purchase in the store!  Today's set to highlight is Papa Love!

So yesterday we went girly with Lovely Mums, but today we're flipping the coin.  This set is named Papa Love but really it's for any guy in your life!  Just look at the variety of sentiments in this one!  For my card, I wanted to create something colorful but still on the masculine side.  So I took the circle sentiment and turned it into a balloon.  I just used a marker to draw in the balloon tail (or whatever you call that little triangle bit;)  To go with the sentiment balloon, I used the balloon stamps from the Good Times set.  I didn't bother masking because I really wanted that overlapping look just like real balloons.  The strings are just drawn in with a silver pen.  


THANK YOU for stopping in!  Stop by the other Mama Elephant team members and see what they did this lovely set!  Lots of fun ideas for masculine cards:)

Come back tomorrow for more highlights from the March release!  Have a wonderful day!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj

  1. Love how you made the Papa sentiment into a balloon. I've been asked to make and donate some gender neutral birthday cards and I'll have to keep your idea in mind. Of course, I would have to go with another sentiment :). Thanks, JJ.

  11. That is a perfect cluster of balloons! Really like the overlapping colors, and how creative of you to turn the circle stamp to a balloon! The tails are perfectly drawn, I couldn't tell that you hand drew them.
