She’s So Lovely | Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight

Mama Elephant She's So Lovely

Hello friends! Today’s card highlights Mama Elephant She’s So Lovely. It’s hard to choose but this could possible be my favorite set from this release. I have a 9 year old daughter and this set just speaks to the momma in me.

First, I stamped all the images onto white card stock with Copic-friendly black ink and colored all the images with Copic markers. I added some details with white gel pen to increase the cute. I die cut out the images with their coordinating dies and set them aside to work on my background.

Next, I die cut a piece of watercolor paper with the largest die from the Basic Rectangles Creative Cuts which cuts out a rectangle that perfectly covers an A2 size card. I masked stripes off with some painter’s tape and ink blended the stripes with Distress Ink in Tattered Rose. I normally ink blend with Bristol Smooth paper but wanted to try the watercolor paper and I have to say I love the texture it added. I will definitely be doing it again. I carefully peeled off the tape and my background was finished.

After the background was completely dry, I heat embossed the sentiments with gold embossing powder. I then adhere the images onto the background with foam tape for dimension. I finished the card off with rose gold heart confetti by Pretty Pink Posh.

That’s my card! I hope you like it. Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!

  1. Your color scheme is lovely! I really like how the stripes frame the focal images and tie everything together.
