About Mama Elephant

Mama Elephant is a small business based in NY/NJ. For childhood buddies, Kryssi and Angela, art and creating have always been our lifelong passion. We are so happy to bring the collaboration of our aesthetics to Mama Elephant! Our stamps are designed with card makers and scrapbookers in mind! All our designs are carefully curated to provide optimal versatility with a wide variety of styles – modern, trendy, bold, graphic, and fun!

Our clear stamps are made right here in the USA and manufactured from the highest quality photopolymer. While they stamp like traditional rubber stamps, clear stamps gives you the extra benefit of allowing you to see exactly where you’re stamping!

Today we welcome Kryssi Ng, one of the owners. We are so excited to have her showcase her work today on Paper Crafter’s Library.

You’re The Best Card

This card was created using one of our newly released stamp sets — Origami. It features the crane image in origami form. I stamped the crane multiple times and colored them in with Copic markers, bringing attention to one by coloring it red. I drew in hanging strings with a silver, sparkle pen with the help of a t-ruler to make sure everything is lined up nicely. The side panels were created with the Basic Borders stamp set using Mama Elephant’s Creative Color Apple pigment ink.

  3. Love this stamp set. Just went out to Mama Elephant and purchased it! Thanks for showcasing such a creative papercrafting company.

  4. I am delighted to see these stamps and to learn of your connection with Mama Elephant. I have just returned from many years of living on a US Army base near Tokyo and am so happy to be able to enlarge my stamping/card making resources with crafting supplies that remind me of the wonderful experiences I had in Japan. Your site continues to make so much available to so many.
