Fly with Me Card for Challenge Up Your Life

Hello and happy weekend, everyone!

I am excited to be a Guest Designer for Challenge Up Your Life (CUYL) today with a “Fly with me” card featuring Mama Elephant stamps! 🙂

Challenge Up Your Life is a great bi-weekly papercrafting challenge blog that is run by a couple of German-speaking crafters (but no worries, they always translate their theme and rules into English). They always have beautiful projects for you to get inspired by!

Theme #105 is:

“Love Is In The Air” / “Liebe liegt in der Luft”

At this time of year with Valentine’s Day coming up very soon I initially thought of a cute, maybe pink card design. BUT … I really was in the mood for some turquoise, which is my favorite color. And I also like more unconventional love-themed cards. So I ended up focusing on the “In the air” part of the theme by choosing the adorable elephant (and birdie) image from Mama Elephant’s “Fly With Me” stamp set and went with a “Lots of Love” sentiment. For the colors, I chose turquoise, yellow – and grey for the elephant.

TAKE A LOOK:

With the photo editing some of the pencil coloring on the elephant got lost, so I took another photo of that where the depth is a little more visible.

I hope you like my card! And that you will hop over to Challenge Up Your Life to see what the Design Team girls came up with.

I am gonna be back later today with another exciting post, so stay tuned. Hugs!

Hello!

Today I have a cute and colorful card to show you using three different Mama Elephant stamp sets as well as lots of different ink pads – Lawn Fawn inks as well as Distress Oxide Inks. As you probably already know I love rainbow colors on cards so I took the opportunity to build my background with repeat stamping in a rainbow of colors! 🙂
