a really small gang

so, i made another card for the mama elephant challenge!
honestly, it's the best colors, and the winner gets a spot on the challenge design! so i know it's a long shot, but i had to play along...again! :)

and without further ado, here's my card:

i heat embossed the triangles in the background from the today was stamp set. i made my own pattern with the triangles by selectively inking up part of the stamp with versamark ink. then i watercolored the background with my distress inks, peacock feathers, tumbled glass and shabby shutters.

the little fish are from the cosmic stars stamp set. LOVE them! they're so cute!! i even added some perfect pearls as shadowing. who doesn't love a little gold, right?! :) and then i chose the sentiment from the good times stamp set; one of my favorite sets! love the sayings!! so FUN!! and totally mama elephant!

lastly, i just added a few circle wood veneers (read: bubbles) and popped up the whole panel on the card base! so FUN! i just love this card! 


  1. love! Great stamp combo and love your background!

  2. This is just adorable, Samantha! :) I love the shine on those triangles!!!

  3. I love this so much, Samantha! You have really blossomed as a paper crafter and you just get better and better all the time! Totally crushing on this card, girl!


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
