Stunning Stamping with Mama Elephant

Sunday, February 3rd, 2019

Hello friends!  My name is Dawn and I am at the little mennonite blog.  I have been blogging and card making for about 8 or 9 years, and scrapbooking on and off since I was a young teen.  I am so happy to be apart of the Scrap n Stamp team!  Today I will be working with the Mama Elephant stamp set Botanic Hello to create this simple, stunning card.

Directions:

Stamp the Mama Elephant’s Botanic Hello with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto white cardstock.  You need to use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink so you can colour the image with alcohol based markers without having the stamped image run.  Colour the Botanic image with alcohol based markers such as Tombow or Chameleon.  I recommend this set.  If you use colours with a few shades of difference between each colour to get a more stunning look.  (As oppose to using colours that are very closely related.)  After the colouring was complete I cut out the image with scissors made for fine details. Use glossy accents on all of the stamens.  Adhere image to an white A2 card front using foam squares.

Add Gelly Roll gold gel pen to the letters for added interest.

Stamp the “awesome” sentiment from the Mama Elephant stamp set with VersaMark ink.  Using Lawn Fawn’s white embossing powder on Lawn Fawn’s Black Licorice Cardstock heat emboss the sentiment.  Get a good heat gun here.  I recommend getting a brand named heat gun – from experience a generic brand does not last long.  Adhere the sentiment with a strip of Be Creative 3mm Tape (a Canadian product!) and give to someone AWESOME!
