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!

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Hello everyone, Kia here today. It is not long now before Santa starts his journey!

I used the adorable set from Mama Elephant called Santa’s Sleigh for this card, doing some water colouring using a mix of watercolours consisting of Gansai, Color Burst and Distress Inks, and I also used silver pen on the sleigh rails. Rudolph also has a red shiney nose thanks to some Wink of Stella I added.

For the moon I first painted it in yellow, then went over it with a watered down acrylic paint to get the glow look.

I stamped my sentiment in red and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Once I was finished with the background I went over it with the Micro Glaze and buffed it for a shine, which is hard to see in the picture. I attached the sentiment with glue, and attached the dogs and sleigh using foam squares. My friend wants to give this card to her hubby, and it fits perfectly as they have 3 dogs. The little dogs shown in the picture I will use on the inside.

Thank you for joining me today. I will see you next time … and that will be in 2019!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
