Elf bonanza!

Hello lovely people,

I have not one, not even two, but THREE projects to share for my Dies to Die For DT post this week!

I wanted to share a variety of ideas for using the Mama Elephant Little Agenda stamps because yes, they are utterly adorable but isn't it hard sometimes to create designs with such teeny images?!

There are lots of different Little Agenda sets but I've chosen to use the gorgeous cheeky elves, so it's an elf bonanza!

For my first project I've used polaroid frames as I think this is just perfect to add a selection of images.

If you didn't have polaroid dies this would work really well with the images matted onto squares or circles of coloured card.

I've kept to traditional colours for this card and added a little sparkle to the hats...that was a challenge as the area I wanted to sparkle was sooooo tiny - lol!

The small size of the images makes them perfect for tags and these mini scalloped tags are so pretty they don't need any extra detail; I just stamped straight onto the tags.

I've coloured on Kraft just for a change, and gone with a less traditional colour scheme.

Finally I wanted to show that you can still make a decent size card using just one tiny image; this card is slightly smaller than A6.

Layering up some frames adds interest around the image and don't be afraid to leave a big area of white space around your image as it will just make it pop!

Are you fed up of elves after all that?!

Nope, me neither...I could play with these cuties all day long - lol!

If I've tempted you with any of the lovely supplies I've used then you can go straight to the individual products via the links below or just pop over to Dies to Die For and have a little browse around!
