After the holidays, I decided to start a little early on my Valentine’s Day cards using my Mama Elephant stamps.  Most of the time, I position my stamps and/or dies on my card base to plan out my card.  I started off with a piece of white cardstock and stamped the adorable penguins from Mama Elephant‘s Polar Pals and colored in using my Copics.  Then I did some partial die-cutting using the coordinating dies as well as the borderline trio dies.

I stamped a simple sentiment using Balloon Letters and Balloon Et Cetera and drew some lines so the penguins look like they are holding onto the balloons.

The penguins are then adhered over the card base with some foam adhesive.


Thanks for reading today, and thanks to Pamela for this fun inspiration!!
