MAMA ELEPHANT Zodiac Rooster | April Stampede

April 15, 2020

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop! Mama Elephant’s newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store!

Hello crafty friends! Today I am sharing a card I made using a few products from the Mama Elephant’s April release! I made a little scene of what my family has been like during the quarantine. The large chickens are my husband and I “chickening in” on our friends while our kids are making a mess. Haha. In all honesty, my kids are older and pretty self sufficient and are pass the “big mess” phase of their lives (if we don’t count the loads of dirty laundry in their closets right now). Overall, we are doing well and I hope you all are also safe and healthy at home. To keep my mind off things, I love to lose myself in the creative process and am so happy so many of my favorite stamp companies, like Mama Elephant, are still releasing new products for us at this time.

For my card today, I am using two new products and one oldie but goodie:

To start, I stamped all my images and colored them with Copic markers.

Next, I die cut my background pieces from Slimline Basics onto Bristol smooth paper and ink blended with Distress Oxides.

For the card base, I trimmed a piece of heavy card stock to 7″ x 8.5″ then scored at 3.5 inches to get a finished card of 3.5″ x 8.5″ that fits into a 10# standard envelope.

The pieces from Slimline Basics Creative Cuts fits perfectly on this card base size. I adhered some pieces directly onto my card based and layered other pieces on top of it. For the clouds and hills (also part of Slimline Basics Creative Cuts), I popped them up with foam tape for dimension.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from Zodiac Rooster onto the speech bubble (also from Slimline Basics Creative Cuts) and adhered my colored images into a fun scene with more foam tape.

That’s it! My card is finished. Thank you for stopping by! Be sure to hop along and leave messages for a chance to get some awesome prizes!
