MAMA ELEPHANT Stampede | October Release

October 15, 2018
 

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop! Today I’m sharing two cards I made with the new Mama Elephant Bright Lights stamp set.

For my first card, I heat embossed the string lights with white embossing powder then ink blended a soft, light blue background. I then stamped the light bulbs with red dye ink and fussy cut them so I can pop them up for dimension.

Next, I die cut some Bristol paper with Cloud Nine Creative Cuts and Framed Tags – Union Square Creative Cuts to create an interesting frame. I ink blended with Distress Ink in Candy Apple and Spun Sugar. Then, I splatter paint onto it for even more interest. I finished the cover by heat embossing the sentiment after the panel was completely dry.

I adhere the entire think on with foam tape and this card is finished!

For my next card, I heat embossed the string lights in silver and then the oblong bulbs in gold. I had that Christmas song, “Silver and Gold” stuck in my head and decided I wanted to make an non-traditional Christmas card. After I finished embossing, I ink blended in purples and pinks to get a elegant background.

For my sentiment, I die cut Oh Joy Halo Script from last month’s release in glitter paper and the halo in vellum. Next, I took a sentiment from Bright Lights and heat embossed in silver onto black paper. If I was to do this again, I would use a dark purple…but I didn’t have any, so black it is!

I adhered that onto my card and it’s complete!

So there you have it. Two relatively easy Christmas cards – two completely different looks and both equally fun and adorable!
