MAMA ELEPHANT Slim Film City Creative Cuts | July Mini Stampede

July 15, 2020

Welcome to the Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop! This month is a surprise mini release of 4 super fun die sets!

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

Today I made a card with one of the newest member of the Mama Elephant Slim Card Creative Cuts family! This one is Slim Film City and it comes with so many goodies! I did not use the film strip today but I will next time. The rest of the dies from my card all came from this set.

I started by taking out a goodie but oldie stamp set, Tiny Ninjas, and stamped them with black hybrid ink and colored with Copic markers.

I die cut my background with the stamp edges, the city skyline and the speech bubble from Slim Film City Creative Cuts onto white Bristol smooth paper.

Next, I used Distress Oxides to inkblend all these pieces. For the sky, I used Peacock Feathers, Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron. For the skyline, I used Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade and Dried Marigold.

I cut a card base of 8 x 3 and adhered the stamped edge sky onto the base with foam tape. I put more foam tape behind the skyline, and added it to the card. I think added all the colored images to create a fun scene.

For the sentiment, I used Mama Elephant pigment ink in Bubblegum and stamped it onto the speech bubble from Slim Film City.

And that’s all from me, folks! Please remember to leave a comment for a chance to win the giveaway below:
