Welcome back to Day 3 of the Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop! We are celebrating 8 years with a fantastic new holiday release along with our amazing friends!
Join us with some free goodies and our annual sale!
Today I’m using stamps from Sincerely Yours and Toasty Friends along with older Mama Elephant dies to create my Christmas card! 🙂
To start I blended Peacock Feathers, Blueprint Sketch, and Wilted Violet distress oxide inks onto a panel of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock. I splattered the panel with water, shimmer spray, and white gouache to create a snowy sky. After it was dry I added the sentiment from Toasty Friends. Then I stamped the images from Toasty Friends and Sincerely Yours onto white cardstock with versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. I colored them with copic markers and then die-cut them with the coordinating dies!
Next I created my scene by die-cutting the On the Hills set from white cardstock and white glitter cardstock. I also die-cut the little pine trees and blended them with Cracked Pistachio distress oxide ink. Next I die-cut the Birch Trees from light grey cardstock. I swiped a versamark cube over the edges of the trees and heat-embossed them with white embossing powder to create some texture. I adhered my scene together and then finished by adding crystal glaze and glitter to the trees for a little extra sparkle! And that’s it! 🙂
