Best Friends Card + Mama Elephant 

Hafa Adai Sweet Friends,

Today ill be sharing with you a card that I made using Mama Elephant’s Honey Bunny stamped set. I Just adore all their critters!

Here’s a photo of my card.

Steps:

  1. First I made my card base which is the standard A2 size 4.25 x 5.50″. I also cut out a panel to the same size of my A2 base.
  2. I did some masking first before I created my background. I stamped the bunnies first on a masking tape and then did a second generation stamping on my panel (I’m still practicing my no line coloring technique) and colored the bunnies using my prisma colored pencils. I then cut out my bunny mask and masked up my stamped image.
  3. For my hill I made another mask to protect the part where I do my starry sunset background. I then blending the inks chosen for my hill. Once I was done I masked off the hill.
  4. For my background I did some ink blending using distress inks. I started with my lightest color on the bottom of my panel and worked my way up.
  5. I removed all the masks and worked on my sentiment. I used a sentiment from the same stampe set. I stamped it using versamark ink and covered it with white embossing powder and heat set it.
  6. Lastly, I added some stars using my gelly roll pen and added some clear wink of Stella on my bunnies!


That’s it for my card today. I hope you enjoyed your stay here on my blog and will be back for more! Please leave a comment! I’d love to hear from you!

Xoxo,

Slider Card + Mama Elephant Products + Another entry for SSSW Challenge

Hafa Adai All,

I’m back with another card post. Today I will be sharing with you a slider card I did recently using Mama Elephant’s Three Amigos stamp set. I must say Mama Elephant creates such cute critters! Love all their products!


I colored these guys using my prisma colored pencils. After I colored them I cut an opening in the area where you usually stamp the cute little messages/words on. I used my craft knife to carefully cut the opening. After that was done I took my card base and places my main panel on top and did my markings so I know where to stamp the little sentiments. See photo below.


Then I added some die cut hearts on my main panel. As you can see in the photos. To add some color I used my distress ink Barn Door. I also stamped a valentine sentiment to my slider panel to add another surprise for the receipient. This slider card was first and I must say I did pretty alright for my first try.
