MAMA ELEPHANT Snow Much Fun | Stampede

October 15, 2020

Welcome, friends, to Mama Elephant’s October 2020 release blog hop! There are so many cute goodies this month and I am so excited to share with you my project featuring Snow Much Fun stamp set. I love Aida Zamora images and she does not disappoint with this one, guys! So stinking’ cute!

I saw these sweet pups and knew I wanted to make a fun scene where the little guy is hiding from the pup who is tossing snow balls.

To start, I colored my images with watercolor markers. I have both Zigs and Arteza and use them together just to get more color variety. Once I finished coloring, I die cut them with their coordinating dies.

Next for my background, I die cut a frame from Framed Tag – Chelsea CC out of Bristol smooth paper before ink blending with Distress Oxides. Today I used Distress Oxides in Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire. I splashed water and white paint on to create a fun snowy sky.

For my sentiment, I pulled out an older set, Jingle Greetings and heat embossed it with white embossing powder onto red yardstick. I love to bring out older stamp sets after not using them for a while – they just feel new again and I fall in love with them like I did the first time.

Time to put the card together. I adhered a piece of pattern paper onto an A2 card base first. Next I glued the FT – Chelsea ink blended background onto the card base. Lastly, I adhered the sentiment and images with foam tape and my card is finished.

  1. Oh this is such a sweet card, Thi! These adorable images are sooo beautifully colored! Love the little scene that you’ve created! Thanks for sharing this wonderful inspiration! 😊

  2. Adorably cute, these pups seem to be having the most fantastic fun in the snow. Your background blending is so smooth, like the colour combination you used on this design x

  3. I like the use of the brown ink for stamping the images and use of watercolor markers. Thank you for the inspiration.

  4. You’re so right. Older stamps are a wonderful way to new moment!! There is snow cuter pup anywhere, little sweet and silly together! Very nice water coloring, I do prefer the softness it brings. Yup, it’ll be snowing before we know it.
