MAMA ELEPHANT Mini Everyday Messages | Stamp Highlight

April 22, 2019

Hello friends! Today is the last day of stamp highlights for the Mama Elephant April release and we are sharing Mini Everyday Messages with you. This is a super versatile sentiments stamp set that you can use with cards, tags, and other paper projects. Today, I made a shaker card paired with the circular grid die to show how these little sentiments fit inside!

I decided to use the elephant holding a sign from Big News as well as a few animals from Stackable Cuties on my card today. I thought it would be so funny to make a shaker card and use the “shake me” sentiment from Mini Everyday Messages to give the recipient instructions on what to do with a shaker card. I colored everything with Copic markers and set aside after die cutting them.

For the shaker, I die cut the Circular Grid CC twice – once on a panel I ink blended with Distress Oxide in Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio, and a second time onto a piece of fun foam. Next, I lined up my ink blended panel to the card base so I know where to stamp all my sentiments from Mini Everday Messages. I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I then ink blended under each of the sentiments with Dried Marigold Distress Oxide just to give it a little depth.

I assembled my shaker card by added a piece of acetate behind the grid, then gluing the fun foam piece on. Next I fill the wells with mini star confetti and closed it up by adhering the base to the shaker component.

To finish my card, I popped each of my colored images onto the shaker card with foam tape. That’s it, my card is done and such a fun birthday card, if I do say so myself.

Thank you for stopping by and be sure to visit the rest of the Design Team and see what they made today!
