MAMA ELEPHANT Lunar Sayings | Stamp Highlight

November 19, 2019

Hello there! Today I am sharing a card I made highlighting Mama Elephant Lunar Sayings. There are a lot of beautiful Chinese phrases in this set (which I used for projects I will share later) but today I wanted to focus on those cute Happy New Year balloons! I went with a less Chinese New Year theme that will work for January 1, 2020 as well…which is coming up…believe it or not!

Let’s get started! I first colored my images with Copic markers. The Lunar Sayings stamp set does not come with coordinating dies so I fussy cut them which didn’t take that long at all.

Next, I worked on my background by die cutting Bristol smooth card stock with Frame Tags – Waverly – Creative Cuts, I masked off the ended and ink blended with Distress Oxide Peacock Feathers and used a cloud stencil to create a fun sky background.

For this card, I got my creative juices going! I wanted it to look like the balloons was carrying this pudgy mouse away so I first drew on balloon strings around my mouse with a Copic pen in Sepia. Then I adhered the balloons and drew lines towards where I would adhere the mouse before adhering him on top of the ‘balloon strings’.

I heat embossed an additional sentiment from Lunar Sayings and adhered the entire thing onto an A2 card base that I backed with cute pattern paper!

That’s it from me and as always thank you for stopping by!
