MAMA ELEPHANT October Stampede

October 15, 2019

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop!

The newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!

Hello, friends! Today for Mama Elephant’s October Stampede, I made a card featuring the new Crafted with Love – perfect for all my crafty friends! This set is so cute I can barely handle it! It’s definitely a set all us carmakers need in our stash! So, let’s begin!

I started by stamping and coloring my images with Copic markers. For today’s card, I only used the three bunnies since they just go together so well and they remind me of me and two of my crafty friends – you know who you are!

For the background, I die cut the gorgeous Winter Forest Cover – Creative Cuts out of white card stock. Behind it, I ink blended a background using Distress Oxides in Cracked Pistachio, Scattered Straw and Worn Lipstick, splashed it with water and glued it behind the Winter Forest Cover piece. I love this cover die so much. it makes since a quick yet impactful background!

For the sentiment, I used the Lots of Letters stamp set and stamped “Hello” onto the banner that comes with Crafted with Love.

To finish my card, I arranged my crafty scene, adhered all my colored images on with foam tape for dimension and my card is complete!

    1. Hi Meghan, thank you for you sweet comment! For the background, I do splash water first and lift the color THEN I add white splatters with a white calligraphy ink I already have that I use for calligraphy but any white ink will do. Mine is the Dr. Ph. Martin’s Bleedproof white.
