Mama Elephant – Botanical Thanks

Hey, Friends!

I’ve been stamping and playing with some older sets that I haven’t gotten a chance to play with.  This Botanical Thanks set by Mama Elephant is BEAUTIFUL.  They also have a Botanical Hello set that is equally stunning and you can see a sample of it in a previous post I did HERE.

Watercolor Thanks

This is a panel I watercolored while at the Kathy Racoosin Coloring Challenge Roadtrip in St. Louis two weeks ago.  I haven’t made cards of anything I colored so I pulled this out yesterday and started putting it together.

Watercolor Thanks 1

I stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Since I was traveling, I didn’t want to bring containers for water, so I had my Pentel waterbrush and used that to watercolor this image using Daniel Smith watercolors.

Watercolor Thanks 2

I decided to accent this card using some Stardust Stickles on the word thanks and added strips of gold sparkle paper.  My friend Jill loves to sew on her cards – I haven’t done it in a very long time and decided to add some stitching to this card as well.  I hope you like it!

Before I go, I want to share one more card that I shared on Instagram recently – I made this card at Stamping Away.  I love hummingbirds so much!

Happy Hummingbird

I colored this one using Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils.  I had not used those in a very long time also and brought them with me to use.  The colors are so vibrant when activated with water!

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you all have a great rest of the week!

XOXO,

  1. Caly these turned out absolutely gorgeous. You just get better and better every time I see your cards. It’s been a long time since I have commented or anything (about 3 months after your baby was born) but I have been keeping up with your work. I’m like a card sniper always in the background watching but you don’t see me 🤪. Just been so busy with moving and trying to get life back in order that I barely get a chance to relax. But I had a moment and wanted to say hi.
